Inverted odysseys : Claude Cahun, Maya Deren, and Cindy Sherman by Lynn Gumpert( )

21 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 1,774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Claude Cahun, Maya Deren, and Cindy Sherman were born in different countries, in different generations - Cahun in France in 1894, Deren in Russia in 1917, and Sherman in the United States in 1954. Yet they share a deeply theatrical obsession that shatters any notion of a unified self. All three try out identities from different social classes and geographic environments, extend their temporal range into the past and future, and transform themselves into heroes and villains, mythological creatures, and sex goddesses. The premise of Inverted Odysseys is that this expanded concept of the self - this playful urge to "try on" other roles - is more than a feminist or psychological issue
Christian Boltanski by Lynn Gumpert( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in 3 languages and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a beautifully written and erudite essay, art historian Lynn Gumpert analyzes and provides a context for these haunting works that have the unsettling ability to be merry and morbid at the same time. With over 150 black-and-white and 50 color illustrations that span the entire range of Boltanski's production, materials, and influences, this insightful monograph - the first to be published in English - is essential reading for collectors, art historians, students, and anyone interested in contemporary art
Picturing Iran : art, society and revolution by Fereshteh Daftari( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book assesses modern Iranian visual culture from the 1960's and 1970's and suggests that modernity in Iran was a creative, complex, and contested process. It examines the expression of Iranian modernity in a variety of media including painting and sculpture, photography, posters, and graphic arts. It highlights new modes of artistic production and the expanding scene in Iran: developments in Iranian art criticism, exhibition apparatus, education, and patronage. The contributors also address changes in the iconography of Iranian art and in the increasingly social role of the artist. This groundbreaking work demonstrates that the visual arts serve as an important archival record of a critical period in Iranian history."--Publisher description
The art of the everyday : the quotidian in postwar French culture by Lynn Gumpert( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In their work, the sophisticated, urbane nineteenth-century flaneur has mutated into a city dweller well acquainted with the often unpleasant requirements of contemporary life. A panorama of an important aspect of postwar French culture, The Art of the Everyday brings to light the work of a new generation of contemporary French artists viewed through the lens of daily experience
Inventing downtown : artist-run galleries in New York City, 1952-1965 by Melissa Rachleff( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and Italian and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This enlightening and thought-provoking look at New York City's postwar art scene focuses on the galleries and the artists that helped transform American art. While the achievements of New York City's most renowned postwar artists (de Kooning, Pollock, Rothko, Franz Kline) have been studied in depth, a large cadre of lesser-known but influential artists came of age between 1952 and 1965. Also understudied are the early, experimental works by more well- known figures such as Mark di Suvero, Jim Dine, Dan Flavin, and Claes Oldenburg. Focusing on innovative artist-run galleries, this book invites readers to reevaluate the period uncovering its diversity, creativity, and nuances, and tracing the spaces influence during the decades that followed. Inventing Downtown charts the development of artist-run galleries in Lower Manhattan from the early 1950s to the mid-1960s, showing how the area's multicultural spirit played a major role in shaping the artworks exhibited there. The book explores 14 key spaces in which styles such as Pop, Minimalism, and performance and installation art thrived. Excerpts from 33 revealing interviews with artists, critics, and dealers, conducted by Billy Klüver and Julie Martin, offer unique personal insight into the eras creative milieu. Taken together, the books essays and interviews provide a distinctly new assessment of how downtown New York's fertile environment nurtured an innovative art scene. -- publisher's statement

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring new scholar ship and seminal essays, this book also illustrates paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints from these three countries alongside biographical narratives of each Artist.00Modernisms will be the first book to provide a cross-cultural study of works from Iran, Turkey, and India. In so doing, it will illuminate our understanding of modern art created outside the long-dominant North American?Western European axis. With nearly 700 works, the Abby Weed Grey Collection comprises the largest institutional holdings of modern art from Iran and Turkey outside those countries, and the most important trove of modern Indian art in an American university museum. Proposing non-Western art as a critical component of modernity, this publication challenges the long held belief that other modernisms are second-rate.00Exhibition: Grey Art Gallery, New York University, New York, USA (10.09. - 07.12.2019) / The Block Museum of Art, Evanston, USA (21.01. - 05.04.2020)
Landscapes after Ruskin : redefining the sublime by Hall Art Foundation( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Ruskin was an influential English art critic and social thinker of the Victorian era, who famously argued that the principal concern of the artist is “truth to nature.” For Ruskin, this truth entailed more than merely adept technical representation, but rather, should depict the natural world as mankind experiences it, with all the sensations of both beauty and terror it elicits. Today, in a world overwhelmed by industrial development and environmental uncertainty, contemporary artists are discovering new beauties and terrors associated with nature, invoking a sense of the sublime that is uniquely modern. Landscapes after Ruskin explores how a joyful experience of nature is now mixed with a particular dread as the earth and its atmosphere are increasingly touched by human activity. This striking volume probes the contemporary sites of the new sublime—from a steel factory couched in a nature park to the aerial view of a bombed city, and from mutating chromosomes to construction sites in suburbia—through essays by artists, photographers, and art historians, as well as experts in environmental studies and philosophy. Featuring more than fifty awe-inspiring artworks—from world-renowned artists such as Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Katherine Bradford, Christo, Gustave Courbet, Spencer Finch, Eric Fischl, Andreas Gursky, Naoya Hatakeyama, Anselm Kiefer, Bruce Nauman, Raymond Pettibon, Gerhard Richter, Thomas Ruff, Joel Sternfeld, and Ai Weiwei—Landscapes after Ruskin offers compelling, and at times chilling, insight into the truth of the natural world today."--From Grey Art Gallery NYU website (viewed 10/02/2018)
Persona : Eleanor Antin, Mr. Apology, Colin Campbell [and others] by Lynn Gumpert( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The need for objectification, for the presentation of the self apart as one's art, manifests itself in the form of the alter ego, which can take an infinite variety of forms according to the needs of the individual artist. This exhibition, originated and organized by Lynn Gumpert and Ned Rifkin, and coordinated by Robin Dodds, explores this deeply personal, idiosyncratic form of expression."--from preface

Taking shape : abstraction from the Arab world 1950s-1980s( Book )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking Shape: Abstraction from the Arab World, 1950s-1980s explores the development of abstraction in the Arab world via paintings, sculpture, and works on paper dating from the 1950s through the 1980s. By looking critically at the history and historiography of mid-20th century abstraction, the exhibition considers art from North Africa and West Asia as integral to the discourse on global modernism. At its heart, the project raises a fundamental art historical question: How do we study abstraction across different contexts and what models of analysis do we use? Examining how and why artists investigated the expressive capacities of line, color, and texture, Taking Shape highlights a number of abstract movements that developed in the Middle East, North Africa, and West Asia, as well as the Arab diaspora."--Artsy website (accessed 18/2/20)
