Cindy Sherman : retrospective by Cindy Sherman( Book )

15 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,035 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
At the end of the century : one hundred years of architecture by Museum of contemporary art (Los Angeles)( Book )

17 editions published in 1998 in English and Italian and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most comprehensive and up-to-date survey of twentieth-century architecture ever published, this volume presents a global perspective on some of the most significant works, ideas, and directions over the past one hundred years. With more than three hundred illustrations covering the major landmarks and architects of the century, it will appeal to a wide audience. Exploring cutting-edge ideas, the book also offers the sophisticated professional reader fresh viewpoints."--BOOK JACKET. "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 )

15 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 669 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
The architecture of R.M. Schindler by R. M Schindler( Book )

12 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With such masterworks as the Schindler-Chace House and the Lovell Beach House in California, the Vienna-born modernist R.M. Schindler (1887-1953) is recognized as one of the most innovative architects of the 20th century. Nearly 50 years after his death, admiration for his breathtakingly original houses and apartment buildings is at an all-time peak
Case study houses by Elizabeth A. T Smith( Book )

37 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 490 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
Urban revisions : current projects for the public realm by Russell Ferguson( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Techno architecture by Elizabeth A. T Smith( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Featured here is the groundbreaking work of Jones, Partners: Architecture (Los Angles); RoTo (Los Angeles); TEN Arquitectos (Mexico City); and Smith-Miller + Hawkinson (New York), each of whom approach the question of the machine and the application of technology in radically different ways. From Wes Jones's overt celebration of the mechanistic to Michael Rotondi and Clark Stevens's experimentation with Native American building traditions, to Enrique Norten's technological regionalism and Laurie Hawkinson and Henry Smith-Miller's sophisticated use of components from the aerospace industry, each architect's interpretation of technology results in unexpected and entirely novel buildings."--BOOK JACKET
Jenny Holzer by Jenny Holzer( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 353 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

Revolution in the making : abstract sculpture by women, 1947-2016 by Emily Rothrum( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and Ewondo and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The catalogue accompanies the most comprehensive exhibition of postwar abstract sculpture by women artists. Revolution in the Making traces the ways in which women artists deftly transformed the language of sculpture. The volume seeks to identify the multiple strains of proto-feminist practices, characterized by abstraction and repetition, which rejected the singularity of the masterwork. Divided into four sections, the book will feature approximately thirty artists and nearly 100 works in total: the postwar era (the late 1950s) including such historically important predecessors as Ruth Asawa, Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Claire Falkenstein, and Louise Nevelson; the 1960s and 1970s, highlighting a generation of post-minimalist artists who ignited a revolution in their use of process-oriented materials and methods; the 1980s and 1990s, the period that moved beyond singular, three-dimensional objects toward architectonic works characterized by repetition, structure, and design; and post-2000 works by artists who created installation-based environments, embracing domestic materials and craft as an embedded discourse."

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.

Lee Bontecou : a retrospective by Lee Bontecou( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artist Lee Bontecou (b. 1931) became widely known in the 1960s and 1970s for her welded steel sculptures and plastic molded assemblages--powerful constructions that evoked natural phenomena and organic biological life as well as machines and instruments of war. This book reevaluates the career of this highly influential artist and focuses not only upon the impact of her early work but also on the import she has exerted on a generation of younger artists. Featuring some 50 sculptures and more than 100 drawings from the late 1950s to 2003, the book presents four essays that reposition Bontecou's work within the history of recent art, examine its shifting critical reception, discuss the artistic context in which her work was made, and analyze how science underpinned some of her earliest explorations
Blueprints for modern living : history and legacy of the case study houses( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Includes eight main essays as well as contributions from Elizabeth A.T. Smith, this volume documents the Case Study House Program, carried out between 1945 and 1966 where 36 experimental prototype houses were built by leading Californian architects
Rebecca Horn : diving through Buster's bedroom by Rebecca Horn( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uta Barth : at the edge of the decipherable, recent photographs by Uta Barth( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1994, Uta Barth has been creating a series of photographs which consist of blurred images generated by focusing the camera on an unoccupied foreground. These unframed, empty, but lushly seductive images present only background information, implying the absence of subjects, and referring to the function of images as containers of information and the role of the viewer in reading that information. This book is a faithful reproduction of the long out-of-print catalogue which was published on the occasion of Barth's first major museum exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, in 1996
