Anish Kapoor by Germano Celant( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anish Kapoor is one of the most important artists of his generation. Born in Bombay and living in London since the early 1970s, he has exhibited worldwide and has works in many important public collections including the Tate Gallery, London and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The artist uses different media to explore his vision including stone, metal, marble, pigment and fibreglass. Yet these materials are magically fashioned, polished and coloured into non-objects which invoke the sublime, a condition of emptiness and darkness. Kapoor represented Britain at the Venice Blennale in 1990, where he won the prestigious Premio Duemila and in 1991 was awarded the Turner Prize."--Jacket

When attitudes become form : Bern 1969, Venice 2013 by Germano Celant( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fondazione Prada presents between 1 June and 3 November 2013 at Ca' Corner della Regina in Venice an exhibition entitled "When Attitudes Become Form: Bern 1969/Venice 2013" curated by Germano Celant in dialogue with Thomas Demand and Rem Koolhaas. In a surprising and novel remaking, the project reconstructs "Live in Your Head. When Attitudes Become Form," a show curated by Harald Szeemann at the Bern Kunsthalle in 1969, which went down in history for the curator's radical approach to exhibition practice, conceived as a linguistic medium."--See more at:
Mariko Mori : Dream temple by Mariko Mori( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and Italian and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents Mariko Mori's Dream Temple project, a full-scale temple inspired by Yumendono, an Eighth century Buddhist temple in Japan. Beginning with her pencil, ink, and watercolor drawings of cellular activity and interplanetary relationships, and continuing with architectural drawings, digital images, and video stills, Mori's vision of a contemporary meditative space is a mesmerizing journey into the micro and macrocosmic forces of creation. The finished temple, built out of dichroic glass, an ever-changing, iridescent surface, serves as a metaphor for both the body and consciousness. The high production quality and graphic design of this book harmonizes with Mori's project as well, and uses transparent vellum and fine papers to present her drawings, informal notes, Buddhist inspired thoughts written calligraphically in Japanese characters, and storyboard plans for how different components of the temple would come together. -- publisher's statement

Betye Saar : uneasy dancer by Betye Saar( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Uneasy Dancer brings together over 80 works including installations, assemblages, collages and sculptures by the pioneering Los Angeles artist Betye Saar (born 1926) produced between 1966 and 2016. This handsomely designed volume presents Saar's work as a copiously illustrated timeline, with numerous documentary images and exhibition details. "Uneasy Dancer" is an expression Saar has used to define both herself and her artistic practice: "my work moves in a creative spiral with the concepts of passage, crossroads, death and rebirth, along with the underlying elements of race and gender." Through her use of found objects, personal memorabilia and derogatory images that evoke denied or distorted narratives, Saar developed a powerful social critique that challenges racial and sexist stereotypes deeply rooted in American culture."--D.A.P website
Serial / portable classic : the Greek canon and its mutations by Fondazione Prada (Milan)( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and Italian and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The exhibition 'Serial Classic', open in Milan from 9 May to 24 August 2015 (preview days: 2-8 May), focuses on classical sculpture and explores the ambivalent relationship between originality and imitation in Roman culture and its insistence on the circulation of multiples as an homage to Greek art. We tend to associate the idea of classical to that of uniqueness, but in no other period of western art history the creation of copies from great masterpieces of the past has been as important as in late Republican Rome and throughout the Imperial age. The exhibition comprises more than 70 artworks and opens with an in-depth analysis of lost originals and their multiple copies, represented by two particularly renowned series such as the Discobolus and the Crouching Venus. Two other important sections are devoted to the materials and the colours of classical bronzes and marbles. The Kassel Apollo, for instance, is presented in two recent plaster casts which reproduce the original bronze surface of the lost Greek original and the colours of its Roman marble copies. Another area in the exhibition illustrates the technologies and methods used in the making of the copies, presenting two essential moments such as the creation of the plaster cast and the translation of proportions and measurements on the new block of marble. Two famous series are also featured in the exhibition, the Penelope, and the Caryatides, on the prototype of the Athenian originals from the Erechtheion.00Exhibition: Ca'Corner della Regina, Venice, Italy (09.05-13.09.2015). / Fondazione Prada, Milan, Italy (09.05. - 24.08.2015)

The small utopia : ars multiplicata by Germano Celant( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In addition to a text by the curator, the volume contains essays by scholars, theorists and artists that take a historical, critical, philosophical and sociological look at the theme of multiplication in art through a variety of languages and media: magazines, books, radio, film, design, fashion, performance and editions of artists' originals and multiples, over a period that stretches from the historical Avant-Garde to the 1970s" (page [11])
Prada Aoyama Tokyo : Herzog & de Meuron by Herzog & de Meuron( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recounts the creative process that led to the realization of the Prada Aoyama Tokyo project executed by the Swiss architectural studio Herzog & de Meuron on behalf of Prada. The building's present appearance, the conception of which began at the end of 1999, is the result of a rigorous analytical study carried out on a number of fronts: on one side with an examination of the territory of the city and in particular the specific area involved, and on the other with an investigation of the type of objects that the structure would subsequently accommodate. The interlacing of these varying dynamics gave rise to the creation of the definitive shape of the edifice inaugurated in Spring 2003, which is documented in this volume in all its different phases of the elaboration process"--Page [5]
Unveiling the Prada Foundation( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After more than 15 years - during which it exhibited work by such artists as Louise Bourgeois, Dan Flavin, Carsten Holler, Barry McGee, Tom Friedman, Francesco Vezzoli, Tom Sachs and Nathalie Djurberg and hosted numerous lectures, panels and film festivals of unusual sophistication - Milan's Prada Foundation is widening its exhibition spaces and broadening its cultural perspective with a new compound designed by the renowned Dutch architecture firm, the Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), led, of course, by its Pritzker-Prize-winning founder, Rem Koolhaas." "The new art center and permanent exhibition space will be situated in a location that includes early twentieth century buildings that originally belonged to one of Milan's first spirits manufacturing companies. Preserved in their original condition, the seven preexisting buildings include warehouses, laboratories, brewing silos and workers' residences - surrounded by a large courtyard. OMA/Koolhaas' project adds an exhibition building, an auditorium and a tower to the existing structures, which will house works from the permanent collection. This accessible volume documents the Foundation's past events and future developments, highlighting the ways that contemporary architecture can coexist with a regenerated historic site."--BOOK JACKET
L'image volée by Thomas Demand( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume "L'image volée", published by Fondazione Prada on the occasion of the exhibition curated by German artist 'Thomas Demand', is a richly illustrated book including newly commissioned short stories by Ian McEwan and Ali Smith, essays by Russell Ferguson, Christy Lange and Jonathan Griffin, and contributions by Rainer Erlinger and Daniel McClean. 00The book explores the way we all rely on pre-existing models, and how artists have always referred to existing imagery to make their own. Questioning the boundaries between originality, conceptual inventiveness and the culture of the copy, the project focuses on theft, authorship, annexation and the creative potential of such pursuits. The volume presents three possible investigations: the physical appropriation of the object or its absence; theft as related to the image per se rather than the concrete object itself; and the act of stealing through the making of an image. "L'image volée" is an unconventional exploration of such topics through empirical inquiry. Rather than an encyclopedic analysis, it offers visitors an unorthodox insight into a voyage of artistic discovery and research

Sam Taylor-Wood by Sam Taylor-Wood( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in Italian and English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sam Taylor-Wood (London, 1967) is one of the most widely discussed and intriguing exponents of "New British Art". Initially devoting herself to sculpture, she has developed an interest in film and photography as means for narrating situations whose attention is invariably centred on the isolation of the human emotion: discomfort, solitude, provocation, euphoria, aggression and sexuality are all recurrent themes"--Book jacket
