El Lissitzky : beyond the Abstract cabinet : photography, design, collaboration by Margarita Tupitsyn( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and Portuguese and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lazar Markovich Lissitzky is widely known as a Russian avant-garde artist who made significant contributions to abstract art in the 1920s. Until now his experiments with photography, photomontage, and graphic and exhibition designs in the 1920s and throughout the 1930s have not been documented and thoroughly analyzed. This book explores both the political and aesthetic aspects of Lissitzky's late multimedia work from his designs for the Abstract Cabinet to his death in 1941. The author and the two contributors give special attention to Lissitzky's intense collaboration first with German and then with Soviet photographers, designers, and filmmakers, and they discuss how his various personal friendships and acquaintances influenced the directions he took in photography and design. The book presents photographic works by Lissitzky and these other artists as well as some of Lissitzky's early non-objective art that foreshadows his experiments in figurative art. It also includes Lissitzky's correspondence with his Western colleagues and his wife Sophie Kueppers
John Baldessari : pure beauty by John Baldessari( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Boldessari: Pure Beauty, the most comprehensive volume to date on this legendary California artist, features more than 240 illustrations. Eleven insightfuL essays, by critics, curators, art historians, and an artist and former student, illuminate many aspects of Baldessari's oeuvre and provide a context for the artist's extraordinary contribution to twentieth and twenty-first century art. Few contemporary artists have achieved Baldessari's range and relevance and this stunning volume, with its expansive reproductions and substantial text, provides the definitive look at an artist who has engagingly challenged our very ways of seeing."--Jacket

9 editions published in 2003 in 3 languages and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La muestra presenta un centenar de obras -pinturas, dibujos, grabados, objetos pintados, pitura mural- que muestran la trayectoria artística de Palermo, quien exploró de manera exhaustiva los límites de la pintura abstracta, cuya fuerza residía para él en las posibilidades del color para evocar una gran diversidad de sensaciones y para traspasar los límites de formato de la pintura tradicional. Palermo trabajó también con soportes no convencionales, realizando experimentos con diversos materiales y formas y explorando las relaciones entre pared y espacio delimitado por el cuadro

Michelangelo Pistoletto : [catalogue by Michelangelo Pistoletto( Book )

17 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extensive retrospective of the work of Michelangelo Pistoletto (Biella, Italy, 1933) offered an overview of the most significant moments in the artist's career, from his early self-portraits dating from 1960 to his latest interventions in the context of Progetto Arte, an initiative that has sought to stimulate reflection on the roles of contemporary art, artists and education since 1994. It also presented Pistoletto's emblematic "mirror paintings", his reflective and plexiglass objects, the works made out of old clothing, and, above all, the series Ogetti in meno (Minus Objects), produced between 1965 and 1966, which is considered to be the launching pad for Arte Povera and one of its most emphatic contributions. The exhibition also presented extensive documentation that offered an account of Pistoletto's work in the field of theatre with the group Lo Zoo, which he ran between 1968 and 1970 and which organised numerous projects based on collective action and participation. As the artist himself declared: "The step from the mirror paintings to theatre - everything is theatre - seems simply natural ... Audience participation in the painting has evolved towards other forms of participation."

Vito Hannibal Acconci studio by Vito Acconci( Book )

20 editions published in 2004 in 3 languages and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La exposición refleja la trayectoria artística de Vito Acconci, manifestada a través de múltiples soportes que se cuestionan constantemente sus límites, ya sea el espacio de una página escrita, las fronteras del propio cuerpo, la fotografía, el cine y el vídeo, la instalación, el encargo público o las maquetas y proyectos arquitectónicos, compartiendo como eje temático el interés por la frontera entre lo público y lo privado y por las posibilidades comunicativas de cada uno de los trabajos, a partir de un proceso de expansión que evoluciona del espacio privado de la escritura, la voz y el cuerpo hacia el espacio público, colectivo, habitable
Public photographic spaces : exhibitions of Propaganda, from Pressa to The Family of Man, 1928-55( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses from a chronological perspective on photography as a tool for a new visuality and the rupture of the role of the spectator: photographic exhibitions from 1928 to 1955, from the spaces designed by Lissitzky's to The Family of Man; the trajectory of utopian architectural-photographic space and from post-Revolutionary Russia to America during the Cold War. This space documents the exhibitions designed by Lissitzky (Pressa, Film und Foto, etc); German, Italian and Spanish exhibitions in the 1930s, and exhibitions in MOMA during the Second World War

Rodney Graham : through the forest by Rodney Graham( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in German and English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume was designed in collaboration with Rodney Graham and Yves Gevaert in conjunction with an exhibition of around one hundred pieces produced by the Canadian artist between 1978 and 2009. Graham (*1949 in Vancouver) uses a variety of media in these works, including books, video, sculptures, machines, paintings, photographs, installations, prints, and music; takes up key concepts of art history; and plays with problems of perception. His works require viewers to come up with art-historical or theoretical associations. Graham derives his source material from Sigmund Freud, Edgar Allan Poe, Georg Buchner, Jeff Wall, and many others, while at the same time dealing with them in a respectful, yet ironic manner. One extensive group of works is based on the artist's own unconventional library, and offers annotations, appendices, bookmarks, reading compendiums, as well as display furniture making stylistic reference to Donald Judd. This catalogue also features Graham's paintings, which explore the myths surrounding classic modern painters such as Picasso and other masters."--Publisher's website
Sert : arquitecto en Nueva York by José Luis Sert( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in Spanish and English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cildo Meireles by Cildo Meireles( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brazilian artist Cildo Meireles, born in 1948, has made some of the most politically telling and aesthetically seductive works in recent art. An important theme in the Brazilian postwar avant-garde, from which Meireles emerged at the end of the 1960s, was the relationship between the sensual and the cerebral, the body and the mind. Meireles, now acknowledged as a key instigator of international Conceptual art, has remained true to these concerns - and to a political and ethical viewpoint formed outside the cultures of plenty. At the same time, he has become a global artist, making work that deals with issues and experiences that affect us all - whatever our country of origin. Under the repressive military regime of the late 1960s and early 1970s, which controlled the Brazilian media, Meireles found different ways of reaching the public - stamping bank notes with seditious slogans and returning them into circulation, or stenciling Coke bottles with slogans before sending them back to the bottling plant. Other works play with the sense of space or scale, varying in size from that of a finger ring to an installation covering almost 750 square feet. His installations are always designed to heighten the awareness of his audience, sometimes by inducing fear, as in "Volatile" (1980/94), which includes the presence of a naked candle and the smell of natural gas. "Babel" (2001) is a contemporary take on the myth of the tower that confounded the world's languages." "Lavishly illustrated, this volume includes 10 short thematic essays by leading scholars - including Moacir dos Anjos, Guy Brett, Okwui Enwezor, Maaretta Jaukkuri, Bartomeu Mar', Lu Menezes, Suely Rolnik, Stnia Salzstein and Lynn Zelevansky - as well as previously unpublished commentaries on each work by the artist."--Jacket
Art and utopia : limited action by Jean-François Chevrier( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La publicación recoge el concepto y la estructura de la exposición, que presenta numerosas obras y revisa algunos momentos clave de los intercambios entre arte y poesía en el siglo XX, tomando como hilo conductor el papel de Mallarmé en la creación artística contemporánea: el siglo XX asiste a la aparente confrontación entre la voluntad de experimentación formal y la tradición que intenta hacer pedagogía para transformar la sociedad, a la dicotomía entre Marx y Mallarmé, entre política y poesía, confrontación superada por la posiblidad de hacer un arte político y poético al mismo tiempo. En palabras de Mallarmé, "la única utopía está en el lenguaje, en la acción restringida del acto poético"
Raymond Pettibon : plots laid thick by Raymond Pettibon( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in 3 languages and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Las ficciones de Pettibon provienen de diversas fuentes: la sátira social, la cultura de masas, la televisión, las revistas y los cómics -Batman y Superman, entre otros. Los textos de sus dibujos se inspiran en obras literarias de Marcel Proust, Henry James, William Blake, John Ruskin, así como en la Biblia, y también en revistas populares y novelas baratas
A theater without theater( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller : the killing machine and other stories 1995-2007 ; [Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona, 2 February - 1 May 2007 ; Institut Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt, 20 May - 26 August 2007] by Janet Cardiff( Book )

15 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Los artistas han trabajado conjuntamente en la realización de obras que utilizan el sonido y la voz como materia prima y tema principal. Por medio de técnicas de edición y de reproducción de sonidos biaurales y del uso de auriculares y de sistemas de altavoces se pueden caracterizar estos trabajos como verdaderas esculturas sonoras. Esta exposición recoge un total de diez instalaciones que conforman un tejido de experiencias independientes pero complementarias. Cada obra impone un tiempo y un ritmo particular, y aúnan la experiencia del teatro, el directo, con la del cine que podría equipararse a un nuevo género narración. Precisamente esta otra visualidad lectora es la que acerca las obras de Cardiff y Miller a la literatura, generando un guión que puede ser leído o interpretado según la mirada o el oído de cada lector-espectador, dando lugar a historias que conviven en el tiempo y que transportan al visitante a ficciones superpuestas: la del museo y la de las obras
