Cindy Sherman : retrospective by Cindy Sherman( Book )

21 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive catalogue traces the career of Cindy Sherman, examining her achievements as one of the leading American artists of our time. By exploring the myriad constructions of female identity and the body in our culture, Sherman imitates and confronts assorted representational stereotypes, becoming for many an icon of the contemporary concerns of feminism and postmodernism. Essayists Amada Cruz, Elizabeth A.T. Smith, and Amelia Jones offer keen insight and observations from several distinct vantage points, demonstrating that Sherman's work is a lens through which to view contemporary art and its ongoing concern with the profound issues of the structures of the self. More than 200 images show the breadth of Sherman's body of work, from the Untitled Film Stills of the 1970s to series such as Centerfolds, Fashion, Disasters, Fairy Tales, and History Portraits, as well as photographs influenced by surrealist artists. Also included are intriguing excerpts from Sherman's notebooks, selections from her contact sheets, and numerous Polaroid studies, all of which shed light on the artist's process
Takashi Murakami : the meaning of the nonsense of the meaning by Amada Cruz( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Takashi Murakami is one of the most thoughtful - and thought-provoking - Japanese artists of the 1990s. His work ranges from cartoony paintings to quasi-minimalist sculptures to giant inflatable balloons to performance events to factory-produced watches, t-shirts and other products, many of which are emblazoned with his signature character, Mr. DOB. Murakami mixes and morphs on canvas, light boxes, posters and other media, cutting a wide, seemingly schizophrenic path that attracts the attention of the international artworld, the Japanese news media, schoolgirls, and the otaku or "geek" subculture alike. He has built up a rich body of work that both reflects upon and slyly interrogates postwar, postrecovery Japanese art and popular culture, voraciously absorbing and engaging both history and culture from Japan and the West, from exalted ceremonies to obscure youthful diversions, such as anime (animation films) and manga (comics), from traditional nihon-ga painting to the work of Abstract Expressionist icon Jackson Pollock and Pop genius Andy Warhol. Murakami's diverse art objects and activities tickle the eye as well as the imagination, and his elaborate ideas inspire new ways to think about Japanese culture."--Jacket
