Cai Guo-Qiang : I want to believe by Guoqiang Cai( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cai Guo-Qiang: I Want to Believe accompanies the most comprehensive exhibition to date of the innovative body of work by Chinese-born artist Cai Guo-Qiang - best known for his spectacular artworks using gunpowder. It presents a chronological and thematic survey that charts the artist's creation of a distinctive visual and conceptual language across four mediums: drawings made from gunpowder fuses and explosive powders laid on paper and ignited; explosion events, documented by videos, photographs, and preparatory drawings; large-scale installations; and social projects, wherein the artist works with local communities to create an art event or exhibitions site, documented by photographs. Featuring works from the 1980s to the present, this volume illuminates Cai's significant formal and conceptual contributions to contemporary international art practices and social activism. Generously illustrated with more than 230 images, this volume includes essays by Alexandra Munroe, David Joselit, Miwon Kwon, and Wang Hui - along with 54 documented plate entries. It is the defining scholarly publication of the artist thus far."--Jacket

Downside Up( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film is about America's largest museum of contemporary art, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), which opened in 1999 in an enormous abandoned factory in the film maker's hometown, North Adams, Massachusetts. This first person documentary captures the struggle of the people of North Adams in their redefinition of their community and puzzling with their role in an alien form of expression: contemporary art. Told primarily through the eyes of the filmmaker and her family, most of whom worked in the factory before it closed, the film charts the subtle changes in the spirit of a region from the intimate view of the kitchen table. It is about hope--the tentative, dangerous notion of hope in a town that was widely viewed as hopeless
