Cindy Sherman : retrospective by Cindy Sherman( Book )

28 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 1,105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive catalogue traces the career of Cindy Sherman, examining her achievements as one of the leading American artists of our time. By exploring the myriad constructions of female identity and the body in our culture, Sherman imitates and confronts assorted representational stereotypes, becoming for many an icon of the contemporary concerns of feminism and postmodernism. Essayists Amada Cruz, Elizabeth A.T. Smith, and Amelia Jones offer keen insight and observations from several distinct vantage points, demonstrating that Sherman's work is a lens through which to view contemporary art and its ongoing concern with the profound issues of the structures of the self. More than 200 images show the breadth of Sherman's body of work, from the Untitled Film Stills of the 1970s to series such as Centerfolds, Fashion, Disasters, Fairy Tales, and History Portraits, as well as photographs influenced by surrealist artists. Also included are intriguing excerpts from Sherman's notebooks, selections from her contact sheets, and numerous Polaroid studies, all of which shed light on the artist's process

"The broad focus of the book is the complex relationship between innovation and tradition and the profound impact of technology on architecture and urbanism throughout the twentieth century. It explores the house and the city; the grand international movements and regional vernacular styles; the forces that built this century and thoughts about where the next one will take us."--Jacket
Lee Bontecou : a retrospective by Lee Bontecou( Book )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the leading figures in late twentieth-century art, Lee Bontecou (b. 1931) became widely known for her sculptures in welded steel and canvas, as well as epoxy and plastic, from the 1960s and 1970s. These powerful and original objects, which have been both critically acclaimed and actively collected, incorporate a variety of figurative, organic, and mechanistic references, suggesting states of transformation between the natural and the man-made, order and chaos, delicacy and ferocity." "This monograph presents reproductions of more than fifty sculptures and one hundred drawings, including her celebrated early works as well as later pieces that are little known and have never been publicly exhibited or published. Along with original essays by Elizabeth A.T. Smith, Robert Storr, Mona Hadler, and Donna De Salvo, this volume also includes a reprint of Donald Judd's influential 1965 Arts Magazine article on Bontecou."--Jacket
Case study houses by Elizabeth A. T Smith( Book )

54 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Case Study House program (1945-1966) was an exceptional, innovative event in the history of American architecture and remains to this day unique. The program, which concentrated on the Los Angeles area and oversaw the design of 36 prototype homes, sought to make available plans for modern residences that could be easily and cheaply constructed during the postwar building boom. The program's chief motivating force was Arts & Architecture editor John Entenza, a champion of modernism who had all the right connections to attract some of architecture's greatest talents, such as Richard Neutra, Charles and Ray Eames, and Eero Saarinen. Highly experimental, the program generated houses that were designed to redefine the modern home, and thus had a pronounced influence on architecture, American and international, both during the program's existence and even to this day"--Bookjacket

Jenny Holzer by Jenny Holzer( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over thirty years, Jenny Holzer's work has paired the use of text and the centrality of installation to exaimen emotional and societal realities. Her choice of forms and media brings a sensate experience to the multiple voices, opinions, and attitudes that shape everyday life. With a turn in practice towards a greater visual and environmental presence, Holzer joins political bravura and formal beauty, sensitivity, and power. This publication centers on Jenny Holzer's work from 1990 to the present."--Jacket

Helen Frankenthaler : composing with color : paintings 1962-1963 by Helen Frankenthaler( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The exhibition focuses on a brief but critical period in Frankenthaler's career during 1962–63, when she “composed with color” rather than with line, resulting in the freer compositions that came to exemplify her long and prolific career. Transitioning from the sparer, more graphic works of 1960–61, Frankenthaler made paintings that more readily filled the space of the canvas, moving toward what critic B. H. Friedman described as the “total color image” that would become a hallmark of her later work. Included in the exhibition are Cloud Bank, Hommage à M.L., and Cool Summer (all 1962), in which she employed a limited number of linear elements, linking them to her innovative stain paintings of the 1950s while marking a new direction with the use of spreading areas of color and a reassessment of the properties of painting materials.00Exhibition: Gagosian Gallery, New York, USA (11.09-18.10.2014)
