América Latina, 1960-2013 : photographs by Luis Camnitzer( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on the relationship between text and the photographic image, the exhibition América Latina 1960-2013 reveals the extraordinary diversity of photographic practices employed by numerous Latin American artists over the past fifty years, a period marked by great political, economic, and social instability. During this period, many artists combined in their work text and the photographic image, using a wide range of media such as silkscreen, collage, performance, and video. This provided them with an effective way of communicating in times of political urgency and also allowed them to explore ideas related to territory, memory, and identity. Including a selection of around five hundred works, the exhibition América Latina 1960-2013 and its accompanying catalog provide the visitor with the opportunity to delve into the history of the continent and reveal the specificity and great diversity of artistic practices in the region"--Page 4 of cover
Francesca Woodman by Francesca Woodman( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and French and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the thirty years since her death, FrancescaWoodmans work has retained an undeniable immediacy and continues to inspire a cult-like following of admirers.Woodman began photographing at the age of thirteen. By the time she enrolled at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1975, she was already an accomplished photographer with a remarkably mature and focused approach to her work. At the age of twenty-two, she committed suicide. Woodman might be merely a tragic footnote in the history of photography were it not for the startlingly compelling, complex and artistically resolved body of work she produced during her short career. Her oeuvre represents a remarkably rich and singular exploration of the human body in space and of the genre of self-portraiture in particular. Her practice assimilated and advanced aspects of feminist theory, Conceptualist practice, and performance art. Thus, a close re-examination of the maturation and reception of Woodmans artistic vision presents an important and timely opportunity to reassess the heady artistic moment during which she came of age. This catalogue, produced by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in conjunction with the first major American exhibition of the artists work in more than two decades, promises to be a landmark reconsideration of Woodman for the twenty-first century. It will paint a fuller picture of her oeuvre than has previously been available, spanning her earliest student experiments to her late, large-scale blueprint studies of caryatid-like figures for the massive Temple Project, and her experiments with fashion photography. The exhibition will bring to light many photographs that have never before been exhibited or published, and the book will focus on these and other vintage prints that theWoodman estate is making available for this exhibition and publication. These rare prints will allow audiences to appreciateWoodmans skill as a printer, and to grasp the importance of the final print to her artistic vision. Through all of these means, Francesca Woodman will examine why her photographs continue to be so profoundly affective many decades after their making
Cai Guo-Qiang by Guo-Qiang Cai( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in French and English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ephemeral and monumental, the work of Cai Guo-Qiang is founded upon an ancient religious and philosophical aesthetic tradition. Borrowing elements from Chinese culture, the artist also makes reference to Western art in the wake of Joseph Beuys, Yves Klein, and the Arte Povera artists." "Seeking a working method that would bring him 'a feeling of freedom', Cai Guo-Qiang experimented with various materials, and in 1989 he unveiled a series of drawings rendered in gunpowder, a substance first discovered by Chinese alchemists in search of the elixir of life for the Emperor and yet used subsequently to kill. These drawings, entitled Projects for Extraterrestrials, are among the works published in this book, which accompanies an exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain. Also included are the artist's preparatory sketchbooks and gigantic screens, presented here for the first time."--Jacket
Issey Miyake making things by Issey Miyake( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in 3 languages and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Demand by Thomas Demand( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in French and English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally trained as a sculptor, Thomas Demand holds a unique place in contemporary art. He approaches photography as a means of preserving ephemeral paper constructions but inevitably the camera becomes central to his creative process." "At first glance, Demand's works seem to present fragments of a hyperreal and familiar place but, before long, they reveal their true identity: a wholly artificial world reduced to generic forms. Large immaculate photographs of interiors and architectural exteriors - a world peopled with inanimate objects and bathed in uniform lighting - are mounted on Plexiglas which underscores the materiality of the photographic object. These forms always allow signs of their true nature to show through, and at no time do they seem to strive for the perfect illusion." "Texts by Regis Durand, Francesco Bonami and Francois Quintin accompany superb reproductions to make this the most comprehensive book available on the work of Thomas Demand."--BOOK JACKET

Ron Mueck by Robert Rosenblum( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and French and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A distinctive body of work that has given a fresh impulse to modern sculpture. The stunning and carefully crafted sculpture of Australian artist Ron Mueck has catapulted him into the first rank of the contemporary art world. This book is a record of his recent exhibition at the Fondation Cartier in Paris, for which he created an ensemble of new sculptures, two of which are of gargantuan scale. Mueck explores reality's ambiguous relationship with artifice. Brilliantly employing the strategies of imitation and illusion, he creates figures that express the contradictions between the real world and the world of the imaginary. His lifelike figures with their veins, wrinkles, sagging skin, and moles have been crafted to such perfection that the remarkably convincing result is deeply disturbing

Born in the streets : graffiti( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A survey of the artists who contributed to the origins and spread of the graffiti movement worldwide, published to accompany an exhibition at the Fondation Cartier in Paris. Beginning in July 2009, the Fondation Cartier will be hosting an exhibition that celebrates street art. The show and the accompanying catalogue first reexamine the birth and evolution of the graffiti movement in New York in the early 1970s, and feature documentation from that time, including press clips and photographs of tags and graffiti by artists such as Lee, Seen, and Lady Pink, among others. The book then explores the explosion of creativity worldwide that followed the New York movement, especially in Paris, which became the nerve center for European graffiti in the 1980s. It juxtaposes the different aesthetics of cities like New York, Paris, London, Berlin, and São Paulo, highlighting styles specific to each city and the diverse practices of contemporary artists who began in the graffiti movement. There are interviews with artists who influenced the development of street art and with others, such as gallery owners, who were involved in its evolution."--Publisher description
Sarah Sze by Sarah Sze( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Architecture and the city are at the heart of Sarah Sze's work. In both the materials she uses and the forms she constructs, her installations are a dizzying metaphor for the urban fabric's shifting and improvised nature. Her flowing structures consist of a litany of small-scale household items - for the most part relics discarded by industrial civilization, or modest, domestic objects such as brushes, screws, and toothpicks - that respond to and infiltrate the surrounding architecture." "Sze's inventive and mature output has aroused enormous international interest. Here, for the first time, is an entire record of Sze's extraordinary and highly acclaimed body of work since her first show in New York in 1996."

Yue Minjun : l'ombre du fou rire by Minjun Yue( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in French and English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in 1962 in the city of Daqing in Heilongjiang Province in China, Yue Minjun is an icon of contemporary Chinese painting. Considered one of the protagonists of “Cynical Realism,” an art movement that emerged after the student demonstrations in Tiananmen Square in 1989, he began developing his own distinctive iconography in the 1990s, which combines pictorial and historial references. Yue Minjun’s paintings are immediately recognizable: they are painted in bright colors on large canvases and peopled almost exclusively by laughing male figures, all which are self-portraits either presented as a single figure or replicated over and over again to form a battalion of grinning frozen-faced clones. These figures appear in grotesque poses or in mock execution scenes, creating an atmosphere of tension that oscillates between the lighthearted and the outrageous, the mundane and the excessive, offering an often implicit parody of contemporary Chinese society."--Publisher description
