5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A comprehensive look at the work of 100 contemporary photographers who capture the impact of human activity on natural landscapes. The Altered Landscape is a provocative collection of photographs representing a wide range of artists, techniques, visual styles, subjects, and ideological positions. Organized chronologically, the more than 150 images-by artists such as Andy Goldsworthy, Chris Jordan, Catherine Opie, and Edward Burtynsky-reveal the ways that individuals and industries have marked, mined, toured, tested, developed, occupied, and exploited landscapes over the last fifty years. From Robert Adams and Lewis Baltz, two of the most influential photographers to document environmental destruction in the American West, to Richard Misrach and Mark Klett, who examine abuse of natural resources, these moving images reveal the diversity of voices within the field of contemporary photography. In Association with the Nevada Museum of Art, Reno."--Publisher's website
The altered landscape by Nevada Museum of Art( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The impact of humankind on this planet has been explored by artists in many media, including photography. Among contemporary practitioners of this art form are photographers whose aesthetic concerns have pushed beyond the boundaries of the conventionally beautiful to create images of stunning visual power and forceful intellectual and emotional content. Over the past decade, the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno has been assembling a collection of this work - one of the largest and most complete of its kind - known as The Altered Landscape: The Carol Franc Buck Collection."--Jacket
Toulouse-Lautrec and La Vie Moderne : Paris 1880-1910 by Phillip Dennis Cate( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accompanying a major traveling exhibition, this catalogue celebrates the groundbreaking avant-garde artists whose works embody the spirit and decadence of fin de siècle and Belle Époque Paris. Toulouse-Lautrec and La Vie Moderne is a celebration of the work of a generation of avant-garde artists at the turn of the nineteenth century in Paris who fought for artistic liberation against the strict codes of the Academy. Like the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists who preceded them, the Nabis, Incohérents, Symbolists, and Naturalists sought to reinterpret a rapidly changing society that was no longer easily definable. Artists such as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Édouard Vuillard, Pierre Bonnard, Mary Cassatt, and Félix Vallotton, among others, render with naturalism and vivacity modern Parisian life and its café-concerts, cabarets, and brothels; street scenes and landscapes; and intimate domestic interiors. Exhibition: Travelling exhibition in the US

" ... the photographs in Juvenile in Justice open our eyes to the world of the incarceration of American youths. The nearly 150 images in this book were made over 5 years of visiting more than 1,000 youth confined in more than 200 juvenile detention institutions in 31 states. These riveting photographs, accompanied by the life stories that these young people in custody shared with Ross, give voice to imprisoned children from families that have no resources in communities that have no power."--Back cover

Chris Drury : mushrooms/clouds by Ann M Wolfe( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"British artist Chris Drury has been lauded for his many installations and site-specific works that investigate themes related to the environment." "In Mushrooms/Clouds, a series of artworks commissioned by the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, Drury brought an international perspective to topics ranging from land and water appropriation to nuclear testing in the American West. In many of these works, Drury utilizes materials collected from such places as Pyramid Lake, Donner State Park, and the Nevada Test Site to engage viewers in the many connections between art and the environment at the micro and macro scales. Drury's embrace of metaphor and analogy also offers multiple meanings with the objects and artwork he creats. He makes visual the myriad connections between the natural and built environment and the historical interface of culture, ecology, economists, and politics on a place."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Landscape futures : instruments, devices and architectural inventions( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work travels the shifting terrains of architectural invention, where new spatial devices on a variety of scales - from the handheld to the inhabitable - reveal previously overlooked dimensions of the built and natural environments.

Anne Brigman : a visionary in modern photography by Ann M Wolfe( Book )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monumental publication rediscovers and celebrates the work of American photographer Anne Brigman (1869-1950), who is best known for her iconic landscape images made in the early 1900s depicting female nudes in the Sierra Nevada. Brigman's significance spanned both coasts of the United States: in Northern California, where she lived, she was known as a poet, a critic, and a member of the Pictorialist photography movement. On the East Coast, her work was promoted by Alfred Stieglitz, who elected her as a fellow of the prestigious Photo-Secession. The ... publication includes a box containing two volumes. One is devoted to Brigman's entire career, covering her work within the contexts of the California Arts & Crafts movement and New York Modernism, as well as the relevance of her work to new dialogues about contemporary photography and gendered landscapes. Also included is a reprint of Brigman's book of poems, Songs of a Pagan, illustrated by her photographs and first published in 1949"--Box, back cover
Unsettled : Art + Environment Conference 2017 by Julie Decker( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unsettled amasses 200 artworks by 80 artists living and/or working in a super-region we call the Greater West, a geographic area that stretches from Alaska to Patagonia, and from Australia to the American West. Though ranging across thousands of miles, this region shares many similarities: vast expanses of open land, rich natural resources, diverse indigenous peoples, colonialism, and the ongoing conflicts that inevitably arise when these factors coexist. The specific geographic focus of 'Unsettled' begins in Alaska and continues down the west coast of North America, through Central America, concluding in Colombia. Works included span 2,000 years, ranging from Pre-Columbian to modern and contemporary art

The inside world : contemporary Aboriginal Australian memorial poles from the Debra and Dennis Scholl collection( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Traditionally used in Aboriginal funeral ceremonies, memorial poles have been transformed into compelling contemporary artworks. The memorial pole is made from the trunk of the Eucalyptus tetradonta, hollowed naturally by termites. When the bones of the deceased were placed inside, it signified the moment when the spirit had finally returned home--when they had left the "outside" world, and become one with the "inside" world of the ancestral realm. Today, these works of art have become a powerful symbol of Aboriginal culture's significance around the globe. The artists featured in the book--including John Mawurndjul, Djambawa Marawili, and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu--are some of Australia's most acclaimed contemporary artists. Taking their inspiration from ancient clan insignia, the designs on these poles are transformed in new and personal ways that offer a powerful reminder of the resilience and beauty of Aboriginal culture. This book features dazzling color images and impeccable scholarship and includes essays from some of the leading scholars in the field of Aboriginal art"--
