Bridget Riley : reconnaissance by Bridget Riley( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book documents Bridget Riley's current exhibition at New York's Dia Center for the Arts, Reconnaissance, which brings together seminal paintings from the early 1960s, landmark works esteemed via word-of-mouth but not often seen. These works are shown together with others from the later 60s and 70s to chart the early career of this highly influential but--especially in the US--all-too-little-known artist. Riley's dynamically abstract paintings from the 1960s and 1970s long ago secured her a permanent place in the history of postwar art. Despite this widespread acclaim, Riley's work has been exhibited in the US only on a few occasions. In Reconnaissance, the artist's first solo exhibition to originate in the US in decades, the public will be able to examine a selection from Riley's compelling body of early work. Additionally, Riley has executed a wall drawing for Dia's galleries, which is documented here

Robert Whitman : playback by Robert Whitman( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the pioneers of performance and multimedia work, constantly cited as key to the burgeoning postwar genres now considered standard fare in art galleries and museums, Robert Whitman's work of the 1960s and 1970s has long been inaccessible because of its ephemeral nature. This publication and the exhibition it accompanies are the first to reexamine his seminal early work, begun under the influence of Allan Kaprow in the late 1950s. Early performances, in conjunction with fellow artists Jim Dine and Claes Oldenburg, paralleled exhibitions in some of the more influential experimental galleries of the time, including Hansa, Reuben and Martha Jackson. The 1960s saw Whitman become highly interested in multimedia projections, which he incorporated into installations as well as into his increasingly elaborate performances. Together with Robert Rauschenberg, Billy Klüver and others, Whitman later spearheaded the collaborations between artists and scientists that resulted in such landmark exhibitions as Art & Technology, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1971 and Pavillion (E.A.T.), at the Pepsi pavillion, Expo 70, in Osaka, Japan. An incisive volume for artists and scholars interested in the major movements of the 1960s and 1970s, including happenings, performance, theater, pop art, multimedia installation work and interdisciplinary collaboration

Double vision : Stan Douglas and Douglas Gordon by Stan Douglas( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Double Vision presents two of the most talked about video artists on the contemporary scene: Stan Douglas and Douglas Gordon. Canadian artist Stan Douglas's new double-screen video work, Win, Place, or Show, takes as its point of departure the fundamental transformation of civic space in North America during the postwar era of "urban renewal." Douglas' inquiry intersects with Scottish artist Douglas Gordon's double-screen video installation left is right and right is wrong and left is wrong and right is right, inspired by Whirlpool, a little-known 1949 film by Otto Preminger. Psychic disorder is a subject of central importance in Gordon's art. This book explores the tangential points of interest within these two installation projects, shown together in the exhibition "Double Vision" at Dia Center for the Arts
