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

Gillian Wearing by Russell Ferguson( Book )

14 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British artist Gillian Wearing, winner of the 1997 Turner Prize, uses photography and video to produce an honest portrait of the complexities of contemporary life. Borrowing from popular culture, her work is both disturbing and confessional. In 1993 she began the acclaimed series 'Signs that say what you want them to say and not Signs that say what someone else wants them to say', in which random passers-by are photographed holding messages of their own choosing, such as the mild-mannered young businessman whose sign unexpectedly reads 'I'm Desperate'. With exhibitions in Britain, Europe, the US and Japan, Wearing is among the best-known and most international of the most recent generation of British artists. This is the first publication to examine all of this remarkable young artist's work

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

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 440 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 )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2019 in English and held by 407 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

Damage control : art and destruction since 1950 by Kerry Brougher( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 365 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.--
Catherine Opie : American photographer by Catherine Opie( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 359 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
Open city : street photographs since 1950 by Museum of Modern Art (Oxford)( Book )

14 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Open City traces the history and development of street photography, beginning with the striking images made in the 1950s by Robert Frank. Including both historical and contemporary artists, the survey presents significant images ranging from the realist, and sometimes disturbing, work of Garry Winogrand and William Klein, to the contemporary development of the street photograph as reflected in the work of Nikki S. Lee, Beat Streuli and Wolfgang Tillmans. For other artists, such as Jeff Wall and Philip-Lorca diCorcia, the street becomes a theatre for staged events, set up for the camera rather than snatched by the photographer on the run. This substantial book is extensively illustrated and includes texts examining the technical and conceptual development of post-war street photography. With information and biographies on the artists
Wolfgang Tillmans by Wolfgang Tillmans( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This catalogue accompanies Wolfgang Tillmans's first retrospective exhibition in the United States and covers his interests in the alchemy of light, our "being-in-the-world," and the potent effects of his portraits, abstractions, and structural and sculptural motifs."--Jacket
Uta Barth : in between places by Uta Barth( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barth's work draws its strength from its blurring of the familiar and strange, bringing the viewer to a liminal space between the two. It is in this space that Barth begins her investigation into the very nature of perception, where the epistemological importance of such formal qualities as lighting and composition becomes astoundingly evident. Uta Barth: In Between Spaces is the first comprehensive book on Barth's oeuvre, presenting a carefully selected survey of her works, and as such is a must-have for viewers, collectors and students attracted to contemporary art and photography. The poetic resonance, radical intelligence and sheer beauty of Barth's pictures are given perfect illustration in this book, designed with the artist herself
