The practice and politics of Cuban abstraction, c.1952--1963 by Abigail McEwen( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the intercultural and ideological purchase of abstraction in 1950s Havana vis-a-vis the larger avant-garde project to which it belonged and within a broadly conceived American context. Abstraction was instrumentalized as a political medium, deeply invested in the national ideology of cubania and committed to the role of the artist and intellectual in the revolutionary process. Focusing primarily on Cuba's third-generation vanguardia, the dissertation analyzes the history of two pioneering artist groups -- Los Once and Los Diez -- and their respective practices of gestural and geometric abstraction. Their work is considered in light of contemporary debates over the social and aesthetic values of abstraction and also in relation to Cuba's past vanguardia tradition and the expectations of the post-1959 regime. Abstraction is further contextualized within the generational "horizon of vanguards" that formed the nucleus of Cuba's modern movement during this period and their relationship to international avant-gardes from New York to Buenos Aires. The social history of abstraction is here prioritized and its critical fortunes ultimately assessed as a barometer of the modern and cubanista values to which it was connected
Experimental artists' groups in Europe, 1951--1968: Abstraction, interaction and internationalism by Valerie L Hillings( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tendency to form partnerships, groups and teams became especially prevalent after 1957. The group phenomenon was not limited to artists associated with a single geographic location or visual vocabulary. However, it was particularly pronounced among European and Latin American artists producing abstract art that emphasized both virtual and actual representations of light and movement. Such groups were founded in most countries in Europe and on both sides of the Iron Curtain: Exat 51 (1951--1956), Yugoslavia; Equipo 57 (1957--1965), Spain; Zero (1957--1966), Germany; Groupe de Recherche d'Art Visuel (1960--1968), France; Gruppo Enne (1959--1964) and Gruppo T (1959--1967), Italy; Nul (1960--1965), the Netherlands; Dvizhenie (1962--1977), the Soviet Union and the international group Nouvelle Tendance--recherche continuelle (1963--1965)
Re-inventing Spain: Images of the nation in painting and propaganda, 1936--1943 by Miriam Basilio( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I examine paintings, propaganda posters, graphic portfolios, illustrated books and pamphlets, interpreting these in relation to contemporary art historical texts and exhibition reviews. I make extensive use of periodicals and archival materials related to the organization of exhibitions, propaganda and cultural preservation campaigns. Chapter 1 traces references to Spanish history and visual traditions employed by right- and left-wing parties in the 1936 electoral campaign that set the stage for the imagery discussed in subsequent chapters. The use of nationalist rhetoric, historical parallels and the appropriation of Spanish art history in Republican propaganda are examined. In Chapter 2, works in the Spanish Republican Pavilion at the 1937 Paris World's Fair initiate a discussion of debates within the Republic related to realism, Popular Front imagery, and regionalist nationalism
Mexican muralism without walls: The critical reception of portable work by Orozco, Rivera, and Siqueiros in the United States, 1927--1940 by Anna Indych-López( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first chapter argues that American reactions to the visualization of the violence of the Mexican Revolution forced Orozco to alter his work in order to accommodate the expectations placed on a Mexican artist and the commercial vicissitudes of the market place. Chapter two proposes that the search for common American cultural origins prompted one of the first blockbuster exhibitions of Mexican art (Mexican Arts which originated at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1930) and informed its portrayal of Mexican nationalism. Chapter three considers the critical reception of Rivera's exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art (1931--1932) and argues that the public rejection of the artist's "portable" frescoes indicates that American critics began to reach more informed conclusions about Mexican muralism. An analysis of MoMA's exhibition, Twenty Centuries of Mexican Art (1940), is the focus of the fourth chapter, which reveals Orozco's more successful use of the portable fresco medium and changing attitudes towards Mexican modern art over the course of the decade
Johannes Baader and the demise of Wilhelmine culture: Architecture, Dada, and social critique, 1875--1920 by Adrian V Sudhalter( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the life and work of Johannes Baader (1875--1920), focusing on the years leading up to and including his involvement with the Berlin Dada group. A practicing architect in Germany before the First World War, Baader abandoned architecture to become a writer and, in 1918, became a founding member of Berlin Dada. Although known for his public provocations and his now-lost three-dimensional assemblage, the Great Plasto-Dio-Dada-Drama , exhibited at the First International Dada-Fair in 1920, Baader remains the most understudied member of the group. The reasons for Baader's neglect are manifold. The small number of surviving works from the Dada period is one reason, his reputation for being insane, another

After Adorno: The essayistic impulse in Holocaust-related art by Andrew G Weinstein( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To demonstrate commonality, this dissertation engages Theodor W. Adorno's philosophy's primary concern, the subversion of positivist identity thinking. (Indeed, such subversion can be understood as a central concern of recent Holocaust-related and mainstream art.) Identity thinking defines the other with reductive terms (i.e. valuable/valueless), and Adorno recognizes its pervasive presence in society, most notoriously in Nazi death camps. Through the conceptual approach and literary style of his philosophy as exemplified by "The Essay as Form," Adorno presents an alternative model of thinking which combines the exactitude of research with the freedom of imagination. This dissertation argues that many Holocaust-related and mainstream artworks since the mid-1970s may be regarded as Adornian essays
When father doesn't know best: Surrealism, metaphor, masculinity by Edward D Powers( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Introduction discusses how language and desire--metaphor and masculinity--occupy the fulcrum of Bretonian Surrealism. My dissertation then addresses how Duchamp identifies masculinity to metaphor, and femininity to its rejection--most notably, in The Large Glass which he divides in two--including the binary male-female axis which structures his use of language and space more generally. It next addresses how Bataille and Oppenheim directly repudiate Bretonian metaphor and also "pervert" its basis in masculinity, in favor of an immediate, bodily relationship to their erotic writings and objects, respectively. In particular, it focuses on Breton's response to Bataille's rejection of metaphor and symbolism more generally, as processes which, by disembodying meaning, reduce it to what Bataille calls a "common measure"; as well as Oppenheim's rejection of Breton's efforts to metaphorize her Object as Breakfast in Fur, or her Pair of boots as Undressing. Lastly, it addresses how Dali and Cocteau, rather than rejecting metaphor, instead reveal its failure. In particular, it focuses on how the Oedipus myth, to which they return time and again, is symbolized as a failure of the Oedipal interdiction. The Conclusion repositions these artists' treatment of metaphor within a counter-teleology of Modernism which, traceable through Neo-Dada and Pop, effectively culminates in Literalism (or Minimalism, as it is now known)
Isamu Noguchi: The artist as engineer and visionary designer, 1918--1939 by Deborah A Goldberg( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi considered himself to be not only a sculptor, but also an artist-engineer, inventor, and visionary designer. This dissertation explores the trajectory of his design career and cross-influences between his sculpture and design from his youth through 1939. Two inventors and engineers, Dr. Edward A. Rumely and R. Buckminster Fuller, shared Noguchi's enthusiasm for new technologies and efficiency engineering, offered him his first design opportunities, portrait commissions, and links to the industrial world, and fostered Noguchi's ambitious self-marketing campaign as a visionary designer. Chapter One investigates the pedagogy of Rumely and his progressive school, Interlaken, in Rolling Prairie, Indiana, whose summer camp Noguchi attended in 1918. Noguchi later reinterpreted the craft, industrial, and agricultural practices that were promoted there
