In memory of my feelings : Frank O'Hara and American art by Russell Ferguson( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Not only was Frank O'Hara (1926-1966) one of the most important American poets of his generation, he was also intimately involved with the art world of the 1950s and 1960s, a time when New York had become the cultural capital of the world. As an associate curator at the Museum of Modern Art, O'Hara organized a series of important exhibitions, notably the work of Franz Kline and of Robert Motherwell. In Memory of My Feelings: Frank O'Hara and American Art explores this key period in modern art by presenting artists who were associated with O'Hara and whose seminal works are reflected in his poetry." "Featuring over 80 works by twenty-three artists, the book focuses on works closely tied to specific poems by Frank O'Hara, notably Jasper Johns's In Memory of My Feelings - Frank O'Hara and Grace Hartigan's Oranges. Included here are direct collaborations between O'Hara and various artists such as Joe Brainard, Norman Bluhm, and Larry Rivers, as well as portraits of the poet by Elaine de Kooning and Alex Katz. Franz Kline, Alice Neel, and Joan Mitchell are some of the other artists highlighted." "The book is a re-examination of the relationship between art and poetry at this crucial moment in American art. It also offers new insights into the charismatic figure of Frank O'Hara and his world."--Jacket
Francis Alÿs by Cuauhtémoc Medina( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the Interview, Russell Ferguson asks how the artist's identity as a cultural outsider has helped determine the path of his art over the years. Cuauhtemoc Medina's Survey identifies the threads that run through the artist's oeuvre while also sketching a political and social picture of Mexico City, the inspiration and setting for so many of his artworks. In the Focus, Jean Fisher examines the political heart of Alys's massive collaborative land art project When Faith Moves Mountains (2002). In the Artist's Choice, Augusto Monterroso's short tales capture the artist's enduring fascination with the role animals and fables play in human society, while Alys's own writings uncover the poetry in everyday phrases and seemingly spontaneous arrangements of urban life."--Jacket

Catherine Opie : American photographer by Catherine Opie( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This exhibition catalogue, published to accompany the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum's major mid-career survey of Catherine Opie's work, is the first to gather all of the artist's key projects to date in a single volume. Each of Opie's series in the exhibition - among them Portraits, Freeways, Domestic, American Cities, Icehouses, and in and Around Home - is reproduced in full-color plates alongside works featured exclusively here, allowing for the most complete overview of the artist's work yet assembled. The volume features a lead essay by Guggenheim Curator of Photography Jennifer Blessing, which surveys Opie's artistic career and its historical contexts; a series of interviews with the artist by Russell Ferguson, Chair of the Department of Art at UCLA; and a brief personal reflection by internationally renowned novelist Dorothy Allison, whose work explores many concerns similar to Opie's. It also includes introductory essays on each of the artist's series by Nat Trotman, Assistant Curator at the Guggenheim, as well as a newly researched, comprehensive exhibition history and bibliography."--Jacket
Damage control : art and destruction since 1950 by Kerry Brougher( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Timely and wide-ranging, this volume explores in-depth the theme of destruction in international contemporary art. While destruction as a theme can be traced throughout art history, from the early atomic age it has remained a pervasive and compelling element of contemporary visual culture. Damage Control features the work of more than 40 international artists working in a range of media--painting, sculpture, photography, film, installation, and performance--who have used destruction as a means of responding to their historical moment and as a strategy for inciting spectacle and catharsis, as a form of rebellion and protest, or as an essential part of re-creation and restoration. Including works by such diverse artists as Jean Tinguely, Andy Warhol, Bruce Conner, Yoko Ono, Gordon Matta-Clark, Pipilotti Rist, Yoshitomo Nara, and Laurel Nakadate, the book reaches beyond art to enable a broader understanding of culture and society in the aftermath of World War II, under the looming fear of annihilation in the atomic age, and in the age of terrorism and other disasters, real and imagined.--

Paul Graham : photographs 1981-2006 by Paul Graham( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A pioneer in the reinvention of contemporary photography as art photography, Paul Graham was one of the first photographers to bring the possibilities of color to the genre of social documentary as we now understand it. His work in the early 1980s prompted photographers like Martin Parr to switch to color, and a new style of photography soon evolved in the works of Richard Billingham, Tom Wood, Simon Norfolk, Jem Southam and many others. Since then, Graham has continued to push the envelope, demonstrating a commitment to expanding photography's artistic space, and to the unity of documentary and artistic considerations in an unblinking engagement with life as it unfolds. Today, he ranks alongside figures like Nan Goldin, Andreas Gursky, Philip-Lorca diCorcia and Rineke Djikstra as a precursor and an eminence. Graham's most recent volume, A Shimmer of Possibility (published in 2007 and already a collector's item - and available below in a new paperback edition), was hailed by critics as a paradigm shifter at a time when art photography is increasingly staged or seems to hold the world at arm's length. This volume, which coincides with a touring European retrospective, appraises 25 years of Graham's work, from 1981 to 2006, tracking his steady expansion of our notions of what photography can say, be or look like."--Jacket
