On the edge of your seat : popular theater and film in early twentieth-century American art by Patricia McDonnell( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To touch the past : the painted pottery of the Mimbres people : essays by J. J Brody( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Native American people we refer to as Mimbres flourished in southern New Mexico some one thousand years ago. They are remembered today for the images they painted inside shallow bowls and eventually buried with their dead. Their arrestingly beautiful paintings, showing a sophisticated sense of design and remarkable level of confidence, depict abstract patterns; animals, birds, insects, and people; common activities such as hunting and fishing; and magical events. These bowls have been avidly collected in the twentieth century and have inspired contemporary artists, both Native American and others. The Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota holds one of the two largest collections of Mimbres pottery in the world. The finest of its eight hundred objects - almost all of them from the Galaz Site - are published in To Touch the Past: The Painted Pottery of the Mimbres People in conjunction with a major exhibition (few of them have ever been exhibited or published before)

WARM : a feminist art collective in Minnesota by Joanna Inglot( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1976, the Women's Art Registry of Minnesota opened a gallery in the revitalized Warehouse District of downtown Minneapolis - and introduced the Twin Cities to a feminist approach to art. For almost twenty years, WARM was a significant presence both nationally and in the dynamic local arts community, offering educational workshops throughout the state and a popular mentoring program, as well as an alternative exhibit space for Minnesota women artists." "WARM: A Feminist Art Collective in Minnesota is the first published history of this influential organization. Joanna Inglot's comprehensive historical essay documents WARM'S history and places it in the context of the national feminist art movement as well as within Minnesota's heritage of grassroots activism. Twelve prominent Minnesota artists are featured with biographical essays and full-color reproductions of their artwork, representative of the more than one hundred women who belonged to WARM and, along with many others, benefited creatively and professionally from the collective in a great variety of art media, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, textiles, graphic design, and installation art."--Jacket

Created between 1996 and 2005, Laylah Ali’s Greenheads chronicle the development of her dramatis personae—thin, round-headed two-dimensional beings of indeterminate sex and race—who anticipate, respond to, or enact unseen power struggles. Over forty of these gouache-on-paper works—from a series of more than eighty—have been gathered from numerous collections to present these compelling paintings for the first time as a comprehensive body of work. The exhibition will allow viewers to examine the evolution of Ali’s series
Paul Shambroom : picturing power by Paul Shambroom( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published to accompany documentary photographer Paul Shambroom's extensive 2008-09 American traveling exhibition, "Picturing Power" is the first volume to bring together selections from all five of his most important--and highly acclaimed--series to date.In the late 1980s, Shambroom visited manufacturing sites and office spaces to capture the spaces where many Americans spend the majority of their days--from the grittiest industrial factory to the cleanest biotech lab to the smallest, emptiest office cubicle. His next series, "Nuclear Weapons," begun in the early 1990s, gained him access to long-restricted nuclear sites, where he produced eerie images of slumbering bombs and immaculate, empty war rooms. For "Meetings" (1999-2003), Shambroom traveled to municipal meetings in small communities as far flung as Bernice, Louisiana and Baltic, South Dakota, to document public officials in a formal portrait style, calling up both the seriousness and banality of these gatherings. His most recent series, "Security" (2004-present), documents eerie scenes of security training at special facilities across the country. Past and future, reality and fiction, blur as each figure creates a picture of threat and resistance in our post-9/11 era.While diverse in subject matter, Shambroom's series all record and demystify secret and little-seen loci of power. His images are remarkable both for their stark portrayal of such places, and as evidence of his access to the sites. Negotiating this access in an open and democratic manner is a hallmark of Shambroom's practice
