A Forest of signs : art in the crisis of representation by Catherine Gudis( Book )

20 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Forest of Signs documents a major exhibition of critical art in the last decade, one that marks a change in the art world, perhaps even in the broader culture. The thread of representation ties together the work of the 30 artists included in the book, encompassing such issues as allegory, appropriation, and commodification, the role of the artist, and the functions of authorship and originality in vesting meaning in art. Much of the work is provocative, challenging the way we look at art, the way we talk about it, where we see it, and how we buy it. The development of these issues and their role in shifting the focus of much recent art from insistence on the art as object, to a host of representations is addressed in four essays and a section of "artists' pages." In the first essay, exhibition co-organizer Ann Goldstein discusses the individual artists and points to key issues and methods in their art. The artists themselves are represented by a 60 page portfolio of their works. Designed by the artists, these pages include personal statements, the remarks of others, works made specifically for the book and works using the tools of mechanical reproduction. In the three essays that follow, Anne Rorimer, former Curator of 20th Century Painting and Sculpture at the Art Institute of Chicago, traces the roots of recent American art to the development of international conceptualism in the 1960s and early 1970s; Mary Jane Jacob, exhibition co-organizer and MOCA Chief Curator, places the artists within the current trends of European as well as American art; and editor and critic Howard Singerman examines the relationship of recent art to its circle of critics and to the emergence of critical theory. -- Amazon.com
Cultures of commerce : representation and American business culture, 1877-1960 by Elspeth H Brown( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aims to contribute to the scholarship occurring at the intersection of business history and the study of cultural forms, ranging from material to visual culture to literature. While both the structural changes in American business and their impact on workers have been explored in depth by historians, the broader impact of business on other cultural forms, and vice versa, is only now beginning to be studied. This anthology contributes to the new scholarship occurring at the intersection of business history and the study of cultural forms, ranging from material to visual culture to literature

Ray Johnson : correspondences by Ray Johnson( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, Jasper Johns, and later Andy Warhol and Jim Rosenquist, Johnson combined the signs and symbols of contemporary culture with the lessons of abstraction to develop a new lexicon of forms. A pioneer in the use of 'found' images and techniques of mechanical reproduction, Johnson created in 1955 what may have been the first informal happening. Johnson first created 'mail art' in the fifties. These were part collage, part manifesto, part parody; he often instructed recipients to 'add to', 'return to', or 'send to', spawning an interactive art form, a continuous happening, that pre-figured electronic mail. Johnson was the nerve center of this pre-digital netscape that spread around the nation and, eventually, the world, which continues to flourish today. By the eighties, Johnson was a legend in the artistic community. Ray Johnson: correspondences, offers the first opportunity for in-depth examination of the work of an artist who reflected and dissected many of the aesthetic, cultural, and theoretical preoccupations of the last forty years; a figure whose impact and influence will finally be made known

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Wexner Center invited artists Albert Oehlen and Christopher Williams to assume a curatorial guise in which they selected, edited, and designed an installation of each other's most recent works. This comprehensive catalogue of the resulting exhibition features both Oehlen's semi-abstract and computer-generated paintings and Williams's conceptual photographs of such subjects as Japanese women, a Swiss dam, and a German folk hat."--Text from David Zwirner Books (see link)
