Peter Hujar : a retrospective by Peter Hujar( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Hujar, a New Yorker of Ukrainian descent, died of AIDS in 1987. He recorded the world in astonishing portraits of cows, sheep, and geese in the country, dogs in the studio, the sea, the city, and above all his fellow human beings, many of whom have since won fame: Susan Sontag, John Waters, Divine, William S. Borroughs, Candy Darling, Robert Wilson, David Wojnarowicz, Paul Thek, and many men, in the nude, half-dressed, sleeping, posing, tumescent. People, animals, landscapes - Peter Hujar approached them all with great respect and a perfect sense of balance between near and far. His subjects face us with supremely dignified singularity, with loneliness at times, and at times in an aura of dauntless and "splendid isolation."

Trade : commodities, communication and consciousness by Thomas Seelig( Book )

12 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whether it's globalization, the New Economy, or young protesters in Seattle, trade is obviously on everyone's mind these days. This book offers a unique and fresh look at the concepts and realities of trade today. Images by photographers from all over the world add up to a fascinating panoramic view of a world shaped by trade: the artifice, glitz, and glamour of shopping, the sprawling metropolises in the East and the West, the lavish displays of power in the headquarters of multinational companies, the inventiveness and the desperation of people in the Third World, global traffic and high-tech communication. All are there in this stimulating, enchanting, and haunting selection of photographs. The striking, and sometimes threatening, images are complemented by a collage of text quotes on trade, ranging from pop culture to philosophy and anthropology. The compilation of texts offers trenchant insights, powerful rants, amusing anecdotes, contradictory at times, but always incisive. Like the images, this collage offers the reader a dizzying array of possible perspectives and thoughts on trade. Instead of purveying a single dogmatic ideology, the book intends to show the astonishingly manifold facets of the phenomenon "trade." "Trade" offers the readers an opportunity to discover playfully their own viewpoint. It combines images and texts to create an entertaining and provocative view of life at the beginning of the millennium." "Featuring: Massimo Vitali, Andreas Gursky, Merry Alpern, Allan Sekula, Thomas Demand, Fischli & Weiss, Todd Eberle, Marc Rader, Boris Mikhailov, Henry Bond, among others."--BOOK JACKET

Zoe Leonard : photographs, Fotomuseum Winterthur by Zoe Leonard( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photographer Zoe Leonard practices a type of cerebral roaming combined with carefully considered observation. For more than 20 years she has criss-crossed nature and culture, cityscapes and museums, always searching for signs that say something about structures, about natural and cultural conditions and the contradictions, parallels and connections between them. Leonard's photographs of anatomical wax figures, fashion shows, trees and fences present figures in sparse black-and-white images that open up visual fields of thought and reveal within them our visible world--the concrete and established structures that make up our reality. Leonard first created an international stir at the Documenta 9 exhibition in Kassel, Germany, in 1992, when she placed black-and-white photographs of female genitalia in the context of a male-dominated museum. Since then, the political aspects of her work have formed a backdrop for her constant struggle with shape, imagery and the union of symbols and content."--Publisher description

"Ai Weiwei is a conceptual artist, highly critical of society and dedicated to the creation of and friction between realities. As an architect, sculptor, photographer, blogger, twitterer, interview artist and political activist, Weiwei acts as a seismograph for current social problems, and blends the boundaries between art and life. Interlacing presents the complexity of Weiwei's oeuvre through blogs, critical essays and hundreds of photographs. Ai Weiwei was born in 1957 and studied at the Beijing Film Academy. In 1978 he co-founded the artist collective The Stars and in 1981 studied under Sean Scully at Parsons School of Design in New York. In 1997 Weiwei co-founded China Art Archives & Warehouse (CAAW), and in 1999 he opened his studio in Caochangdi. An artist of international acclaim with a particular interest in architecture, Weiwei was instrumental in the design of Beijing's famous 'bird's nest' Olympic stadium."--Publisher's description

Lewis Baltz by Lewis Baltz( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive book accompanies the first large retrospective exhibition of Lewis Baltz's work following his passing in 2014.

The book simultaneously locates Baltz's work in the context of photography and contemporary art since the 1970s, to fully examine his significant influence and legacy.

His photo series document the impact of industrial civilization on the landscape, focusing on places outside the bounds of canonical reception: urban wastelands, abandoned industrial sites, warehouses
