"Breaking new ground as the first ever extensive survey of one of the most important and intriguing themes in art today, this book examines the phenomenon of the ideological exchange and often obsessive relationship between artist and museum." "The works chosen for inclusion here, as well as direct quotations from the writings of individual artists, offer a wide-ranging coverage of projects by established and emerging figures alike. The artists featured include such names as Tracey Emin, Hans Haacke, Christian Boltanski, Fred Wilson and Ilya Kabakov. Art and Artifact will serve as an indispensable guide to the position and likely future role of the museum at the beginning of the 21st century, whether within the walls of an institutional building or in the broader context of the urban environment."--Jacket

Art and artifact : the museum as medium by James Putnam( Book )

16 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From cabinets of curiosities to assemblages of found objects and imitations of museum displays, artists have often turned their attention to the ideas and systems traditionally embodied in the museum display, archiving, classification, storage, curatorship which they have then appropriated, mimicked and reinterpreted in their own work. Citing a huge range of examples, James Putnam shows not only the ways in which artists have been influenced by museum systems and made their works into simulations of the museum, but also how they have questioned the role of museums, observed their practices, intervened in them and helped to redefine them

Chiharu Shiota by Chiharu Shiota( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chiharu Shiota (geb. 1972 in Osaka) wickelt sprechende Dinge, etwa ein ausgebranntes Piano, in spinnenartige Kokons aus schwarzem Garn, Schatten und Dunkel. Delikat blitzt zugleich die Tradition und Grazie der Kalligrafie auf. Werk und Künstlerin oszillieren zwischen fernöstlicher Spiritualität und westlichem Existenzialismus. Spuren und Erinnerungen von Orten und Dingen sind künstlerische Quelle ebenso wie die unerbittliche Auseinandersetzung mit dem Leben im Sinne europäischer Künstlergenerationen um Marina Abramovic. Hier wie dort offenbart sich Wahrheit durch Erfahrung und zwischenmenschlichen Gedankenaustausch. Körper wird Medium, auch für die Kunst. Oder ihr persönliches Schicksal zeichnet sich als Abkehr vom bildhaften Schwarz hin zur kinetischen Skulptur ab. Pumpen jagen Rot durch klinisch anmutenden Schlauch. Die Netzwerkmetapher umfasst Spinnengewebe, Beziehungsgeflecht, neuronale Verknüpfung und Blutkreislauf. (Ausstellung: Haunch of Venison, Biennale von Venedig Juni August 2011)
