Robert Smithson : Spiral jetty : true fictions, false realities by Robert Smithson( Book )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thirty years after his untimely death, Robert Smithson (1938-1973) remains one of the most influential artists of his generation. His complex ideas took root in many forms, including drawings, projects, proposals, sculpture, earthworks, films, and critical writings. Although made in a brief span from the mid-sixties to the early seventies, Smithson's provocative works redefined the language of sculpture. Several months after being included in the seminal exhibition "Primary Structures" at New York's Jewish Museum in 1966, he had his first significant solo exhibition at Dwan Gallery, where he would later curate the exhibition "Earthworks" (1968). His iconic earthwork Spiral Jetty was built at Rozel Point, in the Great Salt Lake in April 1970. Constituted of black basalt rocks and earth, Spiral Jetty forms a coil fifteen-hundred-feet long and fifteen-feet wide, that stretches out counter-clockwise into the lake's viscous red water. Smithson's film Spiral Jetty was completed later that year, and the third component in this ensemble, an essay also titled "The Spiral Jetty" was published in 1972. In 1999, the Estate of Robert Smithson donated the sculpture to Dia Art Foundation, New York."--Jacket

This third volume of collected theoretical and critical essays focuses on Dia's exhibitions from 1998 through 2000.

These writers, among others, take on the challenges of illuminating, analyzing, and exploring the work of a disparate group of internationally recognized artists, including Joseph Beuys, Stan Douglas, Douglas Gordon, Rodney Graham, Bruce Nauman, and Andy Warhol. Together, the essays in this book present a broad-based account of contemporary artistic practice, criticism, scholarship, and theory

"Great and mighty things" : outsider art from the Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz Collection by Philadelphia Museum of Art( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The contemporary art world has been challenged and invigorated by outsider art--works by self-taught practitioners who, by definition, have little to do with mainstream art production, but are nonetheless actively engaged with the visual culture of their time and place. This is the first book to explore the collection of Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz, one of the finest private collections of American outsider art. Twenty-seven artists are included in the selection published here, among them Eugene Von Bruenchenhein, William Edmondson, Howard Finster, Sister Gertrude Morgan, Martín Ramírez, and Bill Traylor. The book presents short biographies of the artists and essays by major scholars that examine the work from both theoretical and historical perspectives, with a particular focus on the relationship of contemporary art to outsider art and how the latter has been critically appropriated into postmodern discourse. Renowned artist Francesco Clemente's fascinating essay places these so-called outsiders in the mystical tradition of Jacob Boehme, Emanuel Swedenborg, and William Blake."--Publisher's website
Mixed use, Manhattan : photography and related practices, 1970s to the present by Lynne Cooke( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When recession-plagued New York City abandoned its industrial base in the 1970s, performance artists, photographers, and filmmakers found their own mixed uses for the city's run-down lofts, abandoned piers, vacant lots, and deserted streets. Gordon Matta-Clark turned a sanitation pier into the celebrated work Day's End and Betsy Sussler filmed its making; the photographic team Shunk-Kender shot a vast series of images of Willoughby Sharp's Projects: Pier 18 (which included work by Vito Acconci, Mel Bochner, Dan Graham, Matta-Clark, and William Wegman, among others); and Cindy Sherman staged some of her Untitled Film Stills on the streets of Lower Manhattan. Mixed Use, Manhattan documents and illustrates these projects as well as more recent work by artists who continue to engage with the city's public, underground, and improvised spaces. The book (which accompanies a major exhibition) focuses on several important photographic series: Peter Hujar's 1976 nighttime photographs of Manhattan's West Side; Alvin Baltrop's Hudson River pier photographs from 1975-1985, most of which have never before been shown or published; David Wojnarowicz's Rimbaud in New York (1978-1979), the first of Wojnarowicz's works to be published; and several of Zoe Leonard's photographic projects from the late 1990s on. The book includes 70 color and 130 black-and-white images, a chronology of the policy decisions and developments that altered the face of New York City from 1950 to the present; an autobiographical story by David Wojnarowicz; and essays by Johanna Burton, Lytle Shaw, Juan Suarez, and the exhibition's curators, Lynne Cooke and Douglas Crimp."
Alighiero Boetti : game plan by Alighiero Boetti( Book )

24 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published to accompany the first large-scale retrospective of Alighiero Boetti's work outside Italy in over a decade, this volume presents the most comprehensive overview of the artist's career to date. Covering all periods of Boetti's broad oeuvre--including early sculptural experiments associated with Arte Povera, ephemeral Conceptual projects of the 1970s, and monumental embroideries and tapestries fabricated up to his death in 1994--this richly illustrated catalogue brings together leading international critics and curators, each examining a different aspect of Boetti's achievements, together helping to explain why he remains both influential and inspiring nearly two decades after his death."--Publisher's description
Ann Hamilton : tropos, 1993 : October 7, 1993-June 19, 1994, Dia Center for the Arts by Ann Hamilton( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bridget Riley : reconnaissance by Bridget Riley( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book documents Bridget Riley's current exhibition at New York's Dia Center for the Arts, Reconnaissance, which brings together seminal paintings from the early 1960s, landmark works esteemed via word-of-mouth but not often seen. These works are shown together with others from the later 60s and 70s to chart the early career of this highly influential but--especially in the US--all-too-little-known artist. Riley's dynamically abstract paintings from the 1960s and 1970s long ago secured her a permanent place in the history of postwar art. Despite this widespread acclaim, Riley's work has been exhibited in the US only on a few occasions. In Reconnaissance, the artist's first solo exhibition to originate in the US in decades, the public will be able to examine a selection from Riley's compelling body of early work. Additionally, Riley has executed a wall drawing for Dia's galleries, which is documented here

Outliers and American vanguard art by Lynne Cooke( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some 250 works explore three distinct periods in American history when mainstream and outlier artists intersected, ushering in new paradigms based on inclusion, integration, and assimilation. The exhibition aligns work by such diverse artists as Charles Sheeler, Christina Ramberg, and Matt Mullican with both historic folk art and works by self-taught artists ranging from Horace Pippin to Janet Sobel and Joseph Yoakum. It also examines a recent influx of radically expressive work made on the margins that redefined the boundaries of the mainstream art world, while challenging the very categories of "outsider" and "self-taught." Historicizing the shifting identity and role of this distinctly American version of modernism's "other," the exhibition probes assumptions about creativity, artistic practice, and the role of the artist in contemporary culture. The exhibition is curated by Lynne Cooke, senior curator, special projects in modern art, National Gallery of Art.--Provided by publisher

Robert Whitman : playback by Robert Whitman( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the pioneers of performance and multimedia work, constantly cited as key to the burgeoning postwar genres now considered standard fare in art galleries and museums, Robert Whitman's work of the 1960s and 1970s has long been inaccessible because of its ephemeral nature. This publication and the exhibition it accompanies are the first to reexamine his seminal early work, begun under the influence of Allan Kaprow in the late 1950s. Early performances, in conjunction with fellow artists Jim Dine and Claes Oldenburg, paralleled exhibitions in some of the more influential experimental galleries of the time, including Hansa, Reuben and Martha Jackson. The 1960s saw Whitman become highly interested in multimedia projections, which he incorporated into installations as well as into his increasingly elaborate performances. Together with Robert Rauschenberg, Billy Klüver and others, Whitman later spearheaded the collaborations between artists and scientists that resulted in such landmark exhibitions as Art & Technology, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1971 and Pavillion (E.A.T.), at the Pepsi pavillion, Expo 70, in Osaka, Japan. An incisive volume for artists and scholars interested in the major movements of the 1960s and 1970s, including happenings, performance, theater, pop art, multimedia installation work and interdisciplinary collaboration
