Eva Hesse : sculpture by Elisabeth Sussman( Book )

18 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of sculptor Eva Hesse (1936-1970), one of the greatest American artists of the 1960s, continues to inspire and to endure in large part because of its deeply emotional and evocative qualities. Her latex and fiberglass sculptures in particular have a resonance that transcends the boundaries of minimalist art in which she had her roots. Hesse's breakthrough solo exhibition - Chain Polymers at the Fischbach Gallery in New York in 1968 - was a turning point in postwar American art. "Eva Hesse: Sculpture" focuses on the artist's large-scale sculptures in latex and fiberglass and provides a rare opportunity to look at Hesse's artistic achievement within the historical context of her life in never-before-seen family diaries and photographs. Essays consider Hesse's art from a variety of angles: Elisabeth Sussman discusses the sculptures shown in the 1968 solo exhibition; Fred Wasserman delves into the Hesse family's life in Nazi Germany and in the German Jewish community in New York in the 1940s; Yve-Alain Bois examines Hesse's works within the context of the art and aesthetic theories of the 1960s; and Mark Godfrey analyses the importance of Hesse's celebrated hanging sculptures of 1969-70. In addition to colour reproductions of the artist's sculpture, the book features a copiously illustrated chronology of the artist's life
Becoming visible : an illustrated history of lesbian and gay life in twentieth-century America by Molly McGarry( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Becoming Visible: An Illustrated History of Lesbian and Gay Life in Twentieth-Century America traces one hundred years of same-sex social worlds and political life in the United States: from the extensive gay worlds that took shape in city streets, bars, and tenements beginning in the early twentieth century through a national coming-out during World War II; the repression of the McCarthy era to the liberating forces of the 1969 Stonewall Riots and the gay liberation and lesbian feminist movements; the AIDS crisis, renewed activism in the 1990s; and much more. In text and images, the book celebrates gay and lesbian heritage, illuminates long-invisible worlds, and chronicles a vital aspect of American history."--Jacket
