Dancing around the Bride : Cage, Cunningham, Johns, Rauschenberg, and Duchamp by Calvin Tomkins( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the interwoven lives, radical art, and shared experimental spirit of Marcel Duchamp and four of America's most important postwar artists: composer John Cage, choreographer Merce Cunningham, and visual artists Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg. The publication traces the relationships among all five of these artists by mapping their intersections and examining the depth of their artistic exchanges. At the heart of the publication is an anthology of key texts from selected interviews, magazine articles, and book excerpts, by scholars, critics, and the artists themselves, that together narrate the younger generation's first connections to Duchamp and his work, which would profoundly redefine his legacy as well as the entire field of contemporary art. A new text by Calvin Tomkins provides an insightful first-person account of his encounters with these artists at a key moment int he 1960s. The book also includes the first extensive chronology that recounts the lives, art, and common projects of this influential group of artists

Hélio Oiticica : quasi-cinemas by Hélio Oiticica( Book )

18 editions published in 2001 in 4 languages and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book investigates Oiticica's unique relationship to cinema and his keen interest in the cinematic experience, breaking new ground in the understanding of one of the most significant artists of the second half of the twentieth century. Oiticica used the term "quasi-cinema" to refer to his experiments in film and slide projections, including the lavish sequence of installation proposals called Block Experiments in Cosmococa, the slide series Neyrotika, and the film Agripina e Roma-Manhattan. Essays by Carlos Basualdo, Dan Cameron, and Ivana Bentes, along with copious extracts from the artists own writings, situate these works in the context of Oiticica's oeuvre and the discourses that continue to shape contemporary art."--BOOK JACKET

Cy Twombly : Fifty days at Iliam by Philadelphia Museum of Art( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This revelatory publication provides a comprehensive and multifaceted account of Cy Twombly's ten-painting masterpiece Fifty Days at Iliam (1978), the pinnacle of the artist's lifelong engagement with Homer's Iliad. In his introduction, Carlos Basualdo provides an account of the Philadelphia Museum of Art's acquisition of the paintings in 1989. Richard Fletcher's and Emily Greenwood's essays explore the intertextual dimension of Twombly's project and his adaptation of Homer's literary tropes as a basis for his visual metaphors. Olena Chervonik traces Twombly's engagement with the theme of the Trojan War, which first appeared in the artist's work in the early 1960s, a decade before he made Fifty Days at Iliam. French photographer Annabelle d'Huart is interviewed by Carlos Basualdo about the circumstances of her visit to Twombly's studio in 1978, and her resulting photographs capturing the moment the paintings were being completed. Finally, Nicola Del Roscio, president of the Cy Twombly Foundation, reminisces about the setting and atmosphere of Twombly's studio in Bassano in Teverina, in central Italy, where this painting cycle was created, and addresses the artist's working process and sources of inspiration"--
