Condé and Beveridge : class works( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Condé and Beveridge: Class Works presents the first comprehensive examination of the collaborative art practice of Canadian photographic artists Carole Condé and Karl Beveridge. The book features 112 colour reproductions that illustrate their major photographic projects spanning a thirty-year career of working with organized labour to represent the increasingly complex relationships between paid work and global ethical and environmental concerns. Class Works introduces Condé and Beveridge's artistic breakthrough of 1975, It's Still Privileged Art, when the artists -- under the influence of their membership in Art & Language (NY) and the nascent Conceptual Art movement -- turned from formalist art-making to social engagement and from individualized solo production to committed artistic collaboration. Condé and Beveridge's formulation of left-perspective discourses and their innovations in artistic form herald current art practices in which art-making is understood as a symbolic articulation of human conditions and a tool of community formation. Class Works, edited by Bruce Barber, includes critical essays by Jan Allen, D'Arcy Martin, Declan McGonagle, Allan Sekula, and Dot Tuer; an extensive interview by Clive Robertson with Condé and Beveridge; and a chronology of their extraordinary art practice."--Publisher's website

Bruce Barber : work 1970-2008( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bruce Barber has worked across performance, installation, film, video and photography since the early 1970s, developing propositional and situational works that engage and question social and political regimes of power. Originally from Auckland where he studied at Elam School of Fine Arts in the early 1970s within the highly influential and experimental sculpture and intermedia programme, Barber has been based in Canada for three decades, retaining professional ties with New Zealand and Australia. Early in his career as an artist Barber was a pivotal and important figure in New Zealand post-object art, exploring new territory in performance and time-based practice. The impact of that period on current contemporary practice and thinking is immeasurable, as exhibitions and publications over the last decade have demonstrated, not just in New Zealand but in Australia and Canada as well." -- Introduction, p.7
