Dialogues in public art interviews with Vito Acconci, John Ahearn ... by Tom Finkelpearl( )
18 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 2,352 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." "The twenty interviews are divided into four parts: Controversies in Public Art, Experiments in Public Art as Architecture and Urban Planning, Dialogues on Dialogue-Based Public Art Projects, and Public Art for Public Health."--BOOK JACKET

Language to cover a page : the early writings of Vito Acconci by Vito Acconci( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 245 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

6 editions published in 2006 in English and German and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bekannt als Konzept- und Performance-Künstler, der seiner Zeit weit voraus war, verwirklichte Vito Acconci 2002 eines seiner ersten architektonischen Projekte. Für seinen Galeristen-Freund Kenny Schachter gestaltete er einen multifunktionalen Galerie-Event Raum, conTEMPOrary, in New York. Der "experimentelle Raum" wurde Programm für ihre weitere Zusammenarbeit, bis zum neuesten Projekt für die ART Basel Miami 2004. Vito Acconci wurde über die Jahre mehr und mehr zum Architekt. Sein Acconci Studio plant so unterschiedliche Projekte wie den Skateboard Park in San Juan, den Inside-Out Bookstore (Dokumenta X) oder städtebauliche Planungen für Tel Aviv. Vito Acconci und Kenny Schachter trafen sich zu diesem Gespräch am 17. Juli 2004 in London, wo sie gerade einen neuen Galerie-Raum in Kings Cross bauen

Behind the facts : Interfunktionen 1968-1975 ( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cet ouvrage accompagne l'exposition "Behind The facts. Interfunktionen 1968-1975" organisée par la Fundacio Joan Miro, Barcelone et coproduite avec le Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves, Porto, et le Museum Fridericianum, Kassel. Cette exposition revient sur la création occidentale des années 70 très marquée par la performance. La revue Interfunktionen dont 12 numéros ont été publiés entre 1968 et 1975 fournit la trame chronologique de l'exposition. Interfunktionen était une revue interdisciplinaire sans restriction de media et ouverte à tout style artistique. L'objectif de cette exposition est de documenter une période artistique très riche, au cours de laquelle de nouveaux concepts et de nombreuses préoccupations, encore d'actualité dans l'art d'aujourd'hui, ont vu le jour. Elle s'appuie sur les arts visuels, sur les fims mais aussi sur les créations musicales
