Of his large-scale black-and-white works. This volume traces Kline's art from its beginnings to his last painting in 1961, just a few months before the artist's death. Kline, along with Pollock and Motherwell, was at the center of Abstract Expressionism and "action painting" in the America. This volume demonstrates in the monumental canvases, as well as in his many small-scale sketches made on paper, newspaper, and even telephone book pages, how Kline embraces gesture, experience, and

William Kentridge by William Kentridge( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and German and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Kentridge (b. 1955, Johannesburg) has always addressed the more challenging and intimate aspects of contemporary life and of South Africa, both during Apartheid and in the post-Apartheid period. Through his short animated films, his sculptures, installations, charcoal drawings on paper - based on a technique of erasure - as well as through his activities in theater as set designer and director, Kentridge explores the nature of memory and emotions, the ambiguity and complexity of social conflicts in the age of globalization. His art suggests an original perspective which is both elegiac and dramatic, whereby perpetual change, process and transformation are balanced between ethics, responsibility and poetry." "This catalogue accompanies the exhibition organized by the Castello di Rivoli that will travel in 2004 and 2005 to the K20 K21 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen of Dusseldorf, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Sydney, the Musee d'Art Contemporary in Montreal and the Johannesburg Art Gallery in the artist's hometown."--Jacket
The painting of modern life : 1960s to now by Ralph Rugoff( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book re-examines what has been arguably the most influential development in the history of contemporary painting - the use and translation of photographic imagery. Beginning with seminal photo-inspired works from the early 1960s by painters such as Gerhard Richter, Vija Celmins, Andy Warhol and Malcolm Morley, this book charts the international evolution of this trend over the past 45 years. Richly illustrated with over 100 paintings by 22 artists whose work draws upon varied photographic sources - from amateur snapshots to news and magazine pictures - this book explores how the significance and content of an image changes dramatically when it is translated into a different medium."--Jacket
Arte povera in collezione / Arte povera in collection / [exhibition and catalogue edited by Ida Gianelli with the collaboration of Marcella Beccaria, Giorgio Verzotti] by Fondazione Cassa di risparmio di Torino( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in Italian and English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arte Povera, which developed during the second half of the ‘Sixties simultaneous to analogous international movements such as Process Art and Conceptual Art, proposed an artistic working methodology that, establishing a relationship among various languages and emphasizing an “asystematic way of living,” radically affirmed the need to relate to primary elements and non-traditional materials that might directly express natural energy and ideas. “Arte Povera in the Collection” inaugurates the “Project for Modern and Contemporary Art” promoted by the CRT Foundation as part of its institutional activities to advance and protect art, in order to enhance the modern and contemporary art system in Piedmont and to support synergies and the international role of the museum hub in Turin, through the acquisition of groups of historical works for the collections of Castello di Rivoli and the Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Torino. On the occasion of this exhibition, the acquisition of Arte Povera works dating from 1967 to 1971, from the collection of Margherita Stein, has made it possible to present a complete view of the genesis of these poetics and, by placing this group of works alongside works already belonging to the permanent collections of the two museums, to document more recent outcomes through the individual paths of the movement’s leading figures
Faces in the crowd : picturing modern life from Manet to today = volti nella folla : immagini dell vita moderna da Manet a oggi by Whitechapel Art Gallery( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The exhibition and its catalog trace a history of avant-garde figuration from a new perspective. Taking Manet's The Masked Ball at the Opera as its starting point, the book focuses on his contemporaries such as Degas and then moves through the twentieth century to artists of today. Some artworks represent a dramatic rupture with the past proposing radical and innovative modern forms and structures. Others picture modern life or its impact on our inner selves. Others consider art as an agent for further social change. All the works include critical and bibliographical entries, plus a selection of extracts from historical documents and artists writings from the 19th-century to today. Taken together this art fully illuminates its theme in which representations of the human figure are seen as expressions of modernity"--Global Books in Print

Pierre Huyghe by Pierre Huyghe( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in Italian and English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre Huyghe's reputation in the international contemporary art scene is based on installations, films, and collaborative projects that probe our collective imagination. His works tend to generate a sense of instability by imposing unusual strategies of perception on the narrative structures through which it is constructed. They engage the observers, causing their own stock of visual images and individual memories to interact with the artificial memory of the media. The experience often underlines the rift that is produced between the real and its representation, especially in the means of communication used by the entertainment industry. Castello di Rivoli has organized an ambitious Huyghe retrospective and this catalogue-with a special pop up insert-presents all aspects of his oeuvre, including Blance-Neige Lucie, No Ghost Just a Shell, Sleeptalking, and a new work, Float, created for the show. The catalog includes a broad selection of Huyghe's own writings as well as extracts by other contemporary artists and critics, including a major essay by Carolyn Christov-Barkargiev, and a complete bio-bibliography

Ana Mendieta : she got love by Ana Mendieta( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in Italian and English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of Mendieta's unique contributions is the synthesis of these forms in a fresh visual language that influenced a generation of young artists. Ana Mendieta. She got love gathers a considerable number of works by the Cuban-American artist: more than 130 works created between 1972 and 1985, chosen from among the most significant works in the prolific production that the artist created during her brief life. The volume puts on view her extremely personal alphabet -- visionary and material, magical and poetic, political and progressive. This is an effort to reinterpret Mendieta as a pioneer of performance, video, Body Art, photography, Land Art and sculpture in the twentieth century. One of Mendieta's unique contributions is the synthesis of these forms in a fresh visual language that influenced a generation of young artists. Constructing her own, extremely personal path without limiting herself to following in the footsteps of Land Art, Body Art or performance art and their protagonists, from Robert Smithson to Vito Acconci, from Joan Jonas to Rebecca Horn, from Marina Abramovic to Bruce Nauman. In just a short time -- her art career lasted only thirteen years -- she experimented with various media: performance, video, photography, drawing and sculpture, always putting herself into the work and looking for answers, not only in tradition but also in everything that ties human roots to spirituality. Today she is considered a cornerstone of a historical period and it is also thanks to her work's eclectic nature that many women artists, coming from different parts of the globe and from later generations, have in some way looked at her work. The exhibition attempts to convey the rhythm of Mendieta's work, presenting the succession of her experimentations in a sequence that is thematic rather than strictly chronological. Thus what comes across is a design where elements intersect, take leave of one another and reappear over time." -- Publisher's description

American art from the Whitney Museum, 1975-1995 : multiple identity = Arte Americana dal Whitney Museum, 1975-1995 : identità multiple by Whitney Museum of American Art( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in Italian and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"America 1975-1995, loved and hated by artists who each in their own style have questioned the American dream; the crisis of consciousness which moved them during the Vietnam war; their critical stance regarding mass culture, the violence of racial conflict, and the inherent contradiction of the social system; the difficult relations they perceived between the individual and society. This volume presents the work of those artists who, by their efforts, influenced and altered the principal trends in American art over the last twenty years. The selection is made from among the most significant works in the permanent collection of New York's Whitney Museum of American Art, considered the most important museum in the world dedicated to American art of this century. The book begins with an overview of works by Helen Frankenthaler, Ellsworth Kelly, Franz Kline, Barnett Newman, Ad Reinhardt, and Frank Stella. It continues with the Minimal Art of Sol LeWitt and Carl Andre, the radical abstraction of Agnes Martin, winner of the Leone d'Oro at the 47th Venice Biennale, the self portraits photographed by Cindy Sherman, the video-installations of Tony Oursler, the combined materials work on ecological disaster by Ashley Bickerton, the underground graffiti of Jean-Michel Basquiat, David Salle's strip, and the vacuum cleaner idol of Jeff Koons. Then, Peter Halley, Keith Haring, Mike Kelley, Catherine Opie, Dennis Oppenheim, to name just a few more."--Jacket
