Helio Oiticica : the body of color by Mari Carmen Ramírez ( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One the most creative artists of the twentieth century, Hélio Oiticica (1937-1980) played a key role in the Tropicalia movement in Brazil, and in the overall development of Latin American art and culture. Beginning with formal, abstract works on paper, he progressed to creating labyrinths, works that could be worn as clothing, structures hung from the ceiling, and works that featured pure, vivid pigments. The large-scale environments he created toward the end of his career opened up new sensory worlds for gallery visitors, inviting them to take off their shoes and walk in sand or share the exhibition space with live, brilliantly colored tropical parrots. Drawing on new research and including previously unseen works, this is the most extensive publication yet on this crucial Latin American artist."--Amazon

8 editions published in 2006 in English and Multiple languages and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 2004, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, presented Inverted Utopias, a critically acclaimed exhibition focusing on the development of avant-garde art in Latin America from 1920 to 1970. At the time of the exhibition, a major symposium was held at the museum. This handsome book brings together texts and commentary by leading art historians and critics who participated in the event. A wide range of topics is covered, including the avant-garde in America and Europe, Argentine art in the 1960s, Latin American Conceptualism, and Brazilian art trends of the 1950s. Beautiful and important works by such various artists as Gego, Lygia Clark, Mia Schendel, and Eva Hesse are featured, and a DVD of the exhibition accompanies the book. As an outgrowth of and complement to Inverted Utopias, this book expands the framework for understanding the complex contributions of Latin American artists to 20th-century art

Questioning the line : Gego in context by Gego ( Book )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the late 1950s until the 1980s, the German-born Venezuelan artist Gego (Gertrud Goldschmidt) made drawings, prints, three-dimensional works, hanging-net pieces (reticulareas), and wire constructions (drawings without paper) of extraordinary quality. Taken as a whole, these works illustrate the issue at the core of her production: the liberation of line from volume and form into space. Though little known outside of Latin America, Gego's work enjoyed a dialogue with twentieth-century artists and movements active not only in Venezuela, but also worldwide. In a series of essays examining her art in relation to Modernism, Informalism, kinetic art, and other tendencies, this volume--the second in the MFAH International Center for the Arts of the Americas series--situates Gego in her international context

Antonio Berni : Juanito and Ramona ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Argentinian figurative artist Antonio Berni (1905-1981) is known for his aesthetic originality and for art steeped in social commentary. In the 1950s, he inaugurated a series of works that documented the lives of two fictional characters, Juanito Laguna and Ramona Montiel. Through the stories of Juanito, a denizen of Argentina's shantytowns, and Ramona, who rises from the working class to the upper echelons of society, Berni addressed topics from industrialization to neocolonialism to economic backwardness and their effects on the population of underdeveloped countries. Written by leading scholars of Latin American art, this handsome volume presents the first comprehensive survey of the internationally acclaimed Juanito and Ramona series. Richly illustrated with more than 250 color images, the volume brings together nearly two decades of Berni's monumental, mixed-media reliefs and assemblages, experimental works on paper, and sculptural constructions made of found, everyday objects.
