Lee Bontecou : a retrospective by Lee Bontecou( Book )

15 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the leading figures in late twentieth-century art, Lee Bontecou (b. 1931) became widely known for her sculptures in welded steel and canvas, as well as epoxy and plastic, from the 1960s and 1970s. These powerful and original objects, which have been both critically acclaimed and actively collected, incorporate a variety of figurative, organic, and mechanistic references, suggesting states of transformation between the natural and the man-made, order and chaos, delicacy and ferocity." "This monograph presents reproductions of more than fifty sculptures and one hundred drawings, including her celebrated early works as well as later pieces that are little known and have never been publicly exhibited or published. Along with original essays by Elizabeth A.T. Smith, Robert Storr, Mona Hadler, and Donna De Salvo, this volume also includes a reprint of Donald Judd's influential 1965 Arts Magazine article on Bontecou."--Jacket

Open systems : rethinking art c.1970 by Open systems( Book )

16 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Open Systems examines how international artists rethought the object of art in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Connecting with the increasingly urgent political developments of the decade, artists began to make their work more responsive to the world around them. Open Systems offers a way into this complex and highly diverse period." "Building on the principles of 1960s avant-garde movements such as Fluxus, Minimalism and Neo-concretism, artists moved from focusing on the object to wide-ranging experiments in dance, performance and, most notable, film and video. One widely shared characteristic of their work was their adoption of experimental aesthetic 'systems' to generate their art - in particular in relation to the cube - a development that was to have a profound influence on artists for decades to come." "Featuring the works of prominent international artists working in Britain, Europe, South America and the United States, Open Systems reproduces a wide range of sculpture, painting, film, video, and photography. The book includes newly commissioned essays by Johanna Burton, Donna De Salvo, Mark Godfrey, and Boris Groys, as well as a selection of seminal texts from the period."--Jacket
Andy Warhol : From A to B and Back Again by Donna M De Salvo( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most emulated and significant figures in modern art, Andy Warhol (1928-1987) rose to fame in the 1960s with his iconic Pop pieces. Warhol expanded the boundaries by which art is defined and created groundbreaking work in a diverse array of media that includes paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs, films, and installations. This ambitious book is the first to examine Warhol's work in its entirety. It builds on a wealth of new research and materials that have come to light in recent decades and offers a rare and much-needed comprehensive look at the full scope of Warhol's production, from his commercial illustrations of the 1950s through his monumental paintings of the 1980s.

Face value : American portraits by Donna M De Salvo( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""What is a portrait today?" is the defining question of this volume. Essays by such leading scholars and critics as Maurice Berger, Kenneth E. Silver, Max Kozloff, and Michele Wallace propose fascinating answers, framing portraiture through its age-old kinship with status and wealth; its employ in fashion, politics, and advertising; and its current association with issues of identity. The catalogue also explores the seemingly quixotic rebirth of studied portraiture in an age of instant image-making; the philosophical difficulties inherent in capturing individual 'essence'; and why portraits of individuals have such cachet in mass-audience advertising."--Jacket

Anish Kapoor, Marsyas by Anish Kapoor( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anish Kapoor is the third artist to receive the commission for the Turbine Hall as part of the Unilever Series at Tate Modern." "Kapoor has produced an astonishing work, made all the more so as it is the first to occupy the entire length of the overwhelming space of the Turbine Hall. Uncanny, awe-inspiring, yet intimate and deeply moving, it is impossible to view the entire sculpture from any one position. To experience the work it is necessary to walk its length, pass under it, over it, and round it. Comprised of three steel rings joined together by a single span of dark red PVC membrane, the geometry generated by these rigid steel structures determines the sculpture's overall form, which defies easy description or comprehension." "Investigating Marsyas from a number of different perspectives, the book contains dramatic installation photographs while also documenting the creative process. Donna De Salvo's essay on the development of the piece and its relation to Kapoor's other work is accompanied by conversations with the artist, reproductions of his sketches and maquettes, and Cecil Balmond's essay on the process of engineering this remarkable project."--BOOK JACKET

Lee Bontecou : a retrospective by Lee Bontecou( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artist Lee Bontecou (b. 1931) became widely known in the 1960s and 1970s for her welded steel sculptures and plastic molded assemblages--powerful constructions that evoked natural phenomena and organic biological life as well as machines and instruments of war. This book reevaluates the career of this highly influential artist and focuses not only upon the impact of her early work but also on the import she has exerted on a generation of younger artists. Featuring some 50 sculptures and more than 100 drawings from the late 1950s to 2003, the book presents four essays that reposition Bontecou's work within the history of recent art, examine its shifting critical reception, discuss the artistic context in which her work was made, and analyze how science underpinned some of her earliest explorations

Gary Kuehn : five decades by Dorothea Zwirner( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gary Kuehn became known in the sixties for his sculptures, which evolve in the field of tension between Minimalism and Abstract Expressionism. Since then Kuehn has developed an extensive oeuvre between these two intriguing poles. Careful craftsmanship and a sense of material presence distinguish his works, which always have a metaphorical and a psychological dimension as well. For several years now, Kuehn-who has been known to an international audience since his participation in documenta 6 in 1976-has been working on a comprehensive documentation of his body of work. This publication presents some of his best works, selected by Kuehn himself, systematically and chronologically categorized according to individual groups. An essay by Dorothea Zwirner and an interview with the artist by Donna De Salvo shed light on Kuehn's artistic development
