Barbara Hepworth : a retrospective by Penelope Curtis( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barbara Hepworth's career spanned five decades, from 1925 to 1975. Her style moved from figuration, through geometric and organic abstraction, to the internationally acclaimed grandeur of her large-scale, post-war work. Her best known sculpture is associated with the landscape around St. Ives in Cornwall: 'I used colour and strings in many of the carvings ... The colour plunged me into the depths of water, caves or shadows deeper than the carved concavities themselves. The strings were the tension I felt between myself and the sea, the wind or the hills.'. This publication focuses on Hepworth's unique carvings. It reassesses her reputation in the light of attention recently paid to her contemporaries, Ben Nicholson and Henry Moore and offers the opportunity to look afresh at a major British artist
Afro modern : journeys through the Black Atlantic( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Afro Modern: Journeys through the Black Atlantic' explores the impact of different black cultures from around the Atlantic on art from the early twentieth-century to today. The exhibition takes its inspiration from Paul Gilroy's influential book 'The Black Atlantic: Modernity and Double Consciousness' 1993. It features over 140 works by more than 60 artists. Gilroy used the term 'The Black Atlantic' to describe the transmission of black cultures around the Atlantic, and the instances of cultural hybridity, that occurred as a result of transatlantic slavery and its legacy. 'Afro Modern: Journeys through the Black Atlantic' reflects Gilroy's idea of the Atlantic Ocean as a 'continent in negative', offering a network connecting Africa, North and South America, the Caribbean and Europe. It traces both real and imagined routes taken across the Atlantic, and highlights artistic links and dialogues from the early twentieth-century to today. The exhibition is divided into seven chronological sections. Charting new forms of art arising from black culture and the work of black artists and intellectuals, it opens up an alternative, transatlantic reading of modernism and contemporary culture
Nam June Paik by Nam June Paik( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and German and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nam June Paik (1932-2006) was one of the most innovative artists of the twentieth century, whose influence is still felt in music, the visual arts, film and video. Born in South Korea, Paik began his career as a composer in Japan and in Germany, where he met Karlheinz Stockhausen and John Cage and collaborated with Joseph Beuys. Moving to New York in 1964, he formed relationships with a number of artists associated with the Fluxus group, particularly the cellist Charlotte Moorman, who became one of his closest collaborators. He continued to experiment in performance and video art, using manipulated televisions as elements in sculptural works, creating robot sculptures and installations. An international range of contributors trace the course of Paik's life and career, exploring his connections with key figures in the twentieth-century avant-garde, his theoretical writings and his lasting influence. Extensively illustrated, with extracts from interviews and reminiscences from many who were close to Paik during his lifetime, this will be the most thorough and illuminating exploration of Paik's legacy yet published
Gustav Klimt : painting, design and modern life by Gustav Klimt( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) remains one of the most popular artists of the early 20th century. Published to accompany a major exhibition at Tate Liverpool, a highlight of that city's 2008 Capital of Culture celebrations and the first such show in the UK, Gustav Klimt explores the life and work of an intriguing figure at the heart of the cultural transformation of Vienna around 1900." "Central to the book is the first thorough examination of the relationship between Klimt's paintings and the work of his close friend the architect and designer Josef Hoffmann. Reaching beyond the two-dimensional arts, it hails the advent of an all-inclusive design culture that embraced interiors, furniture, clothing and jewellery. Essays by leading scholars and curators consider key works, events and developments: the founding of the Viennese Secession, the inaugural display of the Beethoven Frieze, and a series of collaborative ventures in the creation of total domestic environments for the pursuit of 'modern life', among them the Villa Waerndorfer in Vienna and the Villa Primavesi in rural northern Moravia. In addition, Klimt is assessed as both an accomplished erotic draughtsman and a seductive landscape painter."--Jacket

Critical perspectives on contemporary painting : hybridity, hegemony, historicism( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays examines and assesses the current status of painting within global contemporary art. The meaning and value of 'painting' as both a category and a set of practices is analysed ... also included are perceptive contributions from several contemporary artists. Concerned with the internationalisation of contemporary art as a feature of globalisation, Critical Perspectives on Contemporary Painting sheds new light on fine art understood as a facet of a global culture and society dominated by northern and European-US power and history. What kinds of resistance to this hegemony might be possible for artists located in the 'third world' yet inescapably implicated in the big business of the 'art world'?"--Cover
