Dialogues in public art : interviews with Vito Acconci, John Ahearn ... by Tom Finkelpearl( )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 2,595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dialogues in Public Art presents a blend of interviews with the people who create and experience public art - from an artist who mounted three bronze sculptures in the South Bronx to the bureaucrat who led the fight to have them removed; from an artist who describes his work as a "cancer" on architecture to a pair of architects who might agree with him; from a artist who formed a coalition to convert twenty-two derelict row houses into an art center/community revitalization project to a young woman who got her life back on track while living in one of the converted houses."

Vito Acconci by Kate Linker( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Noted and notorious for his conceptually based body art and performance pieces of the late 1960s and early 1970s, Vito Acconci has uniquely invigorated the American art scene for more than two decades and has exerted a profound influence on the current generation of artists." "This first full-scale study of the artist's career traces the shift from his early "language pieces" to his first visual art in 1969 (photographs that recorded the actions of his body - bending, throwing, jumping - in a landscape) to the filmed live performances and provocative installations of the 1970s and to his sculptural furniture and architecture and the public projects of the 1980s and early 1990s."--Jacket
Language to cover a page : the early writings of Vito Acconci by Vito Acconci( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pioneering conceptual artist Vito Acconci began his career as a poet. In the 1960s, before beginning his work in performance and video art, Acconci studied at the Iowa Writers Workshop and published poems in journals and chapbooks. Almost all of this work remains unknown; much of it appeared in the self-produced magazines of the Lower East Side's mimeo revolution, and many other pieces were never published. Language to Cover a Page collects these writings for the first time and not only shows Acconci to be an important experimental writer of the period, but demonstrates the continuity of his early writing with his later work in film, video, and performance. Language to Cover a Page documents a key moment in the unprecedented intersection of artists and poets in the late 1960s--as seen in the Dwan Gallery's series of "Language" shows (1967-1970) and in Acconci's own journal 0 to 9. Indeed, as Acconci moved from the poetry scene to the art world, his poetry became increasingly performative while his artwork was often structured and motivated by linguistic play. Acconci's early writing recalls the work of Samuel Beckett, the deadpan voice of the nouveau roman, and the jump cuts and fraught permutations of the nouvelle vague. Poems in Language to Cover a Page explore the materiality of language ("language as matter and not ideas," as Robert Smithson put it), the physical space of the page, and the physicality of source texts (phonebooks, thesauruses, dictionaries). Other poems take the space of the page as an analogue to performance space or implicate the poem in a network of activity (as in his "Dial-a-Poem" pieces). Readers will find Acconci's inventive and accomplished poetry as edgy and provocative as anything published today

Storefront for art and architecture by Vito Acconci( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and German and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1993, the artist Vito Acconci and the architect Steven Holl were invited to redesign the facade of the Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York. Addressing the site's urban environment and its function as an art space - the gallery is located on the ground floor of a low building on the outskirts of Soho - Acconci and Holl created a versatile facade which may be opened up in different ways depending on the season, or function as an optical screen separating the inner space from the street. These diverse functions - responding to considerations of both inner and outer space, creating links and transparencies as well as establishing borders - provide for a constant flux of local and spatial relationships for both the interested viewer and the casual passerby. This new book, part of Hatje/Cantz's "Werkdokumente" series, documents Acconci and Holl's collaborative project with photographs by Paul Ott."--Jacket
