Welded sculpture of the twentieth century by Judy Collischan( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first-ever study of welded sculpture begins with its historical sources and methodology and provides extensive coverage of the giants of the medium - Picasso, Gonzalez, Smith, and Caro - and their adoption of an industrial process for aesthetic purposes. It goes on to survey the entire twentieth century, some one hundred artists from all over the world." "With nearly two hundred illustrations, a glossary, and a comprehensive bibliography, Welded Sculpture of the Twentieth Century is an indispensable reference for anyone interested in modern art. It is published in conjunction with a major exhibition held at the Neuberger Museum of Art, State University of New York, Purchase."--Jacket
Mary Frank : encounters by Mary Frank( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume by Linda Nochlin explores Frank's paintings of the past decade, particularly her large-scale triptychs, which in form are reminiscent of the classic Christian altarpiece. Among the more than forty full-color illustrations of her work are foldouts revealing both interior and exterior views of these monumental works, which incorporate the unifying themes and imagery that have dominated Frank's work for thirty years: lyrical and mythical figures, manifestations of the natural world, and ambiguous spaces. In her hands, this personal vocabulary is subject to unlimited reconfiguration, establishing Mary Frank as a visual poet and a major figure in the art of this country." "In addition to Nochlin's descriptive interpretation of Frank's most recent work, the book includes a chronology of Frank's life, from her birth in London and move to the United States as a child, to her early training in art and dance, to her publication, collection and exhibition history, and the awards and honors she has received."--Jacket
Jim Dine, some drawings by Jim Dine( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book of 85 drawings by Jim Dine illustrates the range and mastery of the artist's draftsmanship over more than four decades. The variety and breadth of the selection shows the intense way Dine observes the world around him and the excitement with which he records it on paper. Dine has said that his ability to draw is both a privilege and the result of hard physical training, compelling him to move inexorably forward to capture the next idea or the next psychological insight in drawings that are extraordinarily human. The selection includes early tool pencil drawings and collages, as well as powerful portrait and figure studies in a variety of media. Also included are large painterly pastels executed with a bravura that places them somewhere between painting and drawing. Dine sees his paintings and drawings as essentially conceived and developed in the same way--requiring the same amount of time, emotion and physicality of medium. The only difference, in the end, is that the drawings are on paper
June Wayne : a retrospective by June Wayne( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"June Wayne Exhibition Captures Her Inventive, Influential Spirit: Pure light and space became a serious aesthetic vehicle in '60s Southern California. Such phenomenon-based art flowered here in the work of chaps like Larry Bell and Robert Irwin, but they had artistic ancestors. Painter John McLaughlin is frequently noted. Another less obvious precursor is June Wayne. At 80, she's something of a phenomenon herself. Her work is reviewed at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in "June Wayne: A Retrospective." About time, too. Rarely seen in her adopted hometown, this cultural trailblazer has achieved more than this artistic accolade. In the '40s, she fought a City Hall that thought modern art was a Commie plot. In 1960, she founded and directed the nonprofit Tamarind Lithography Workshop. It literally saved an endangered art form. She was wife, mother and general family care-giver while actively championing feminist aims, inspiring such kindred younger spirits as Judy Chicago. Wayne is like a Renaissance figure reincarnated as a scrappy Depression-era Chicago school dropout fending off wise guys while reading John Donne. The exhibition shows her no-guff human side best in "The Dorothy Series," a portfolio of graphic-nostalgia-style prints dedicated to her mother. Its least typical but most mordant image is a Pop-literal picture of a brassiere titled "Power Net." It takes on greater resonance knowing Wayne's divorced mother was a traveling saleswoman of wares then called "foundation garments."--Article from the LA Times on December 1, 1998 (see link)
Sylvia Plimack Mangold : works on paper, 1968-1991, with a catalogue raisonné of the prints by Ellen D'Oench( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue to accompany a traveling exhibition explores the relationship of Mangold's works on paper to her paintings, and places the much-admired artist within the context of the major art movements of the past two decades. It also includes impressions of all her relief intaglios and lithographic prints, and over 40 of her drawings in pastel, watercolor, acrylic, and gouache
Elizabeth Catlett sculpture : a fifty-year retrospective by Elizabeth Catlett( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph covers a fifty-year period from 1946-1996 in the life's work of the renowned African-American artist Elizabeth Catlett. Catlett was born and raised in Washington, DC. She received her B.A. in painting from Howard University in Washington and her M.F.A. in sculpture from the University of Iowa. From the beginning of her career as an artist and a teacher in the early 1940s, Catlett's themes have reflected her concerns for social injustice, the human condition, and her life as an African-American woman and mother. Formally, her sculpture draws upon African and pre-Columbian traditions, as well as early modernism in Europe, the United States and Mexico. For a period of twenty years Catlett was involved with the Taller de Grafica Popular, a collaborative print-making workshop that addressed the concerns of working people. She has exhibited her work internationally and it is represented in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art and The Studio Museum of Harlem in New York City, among many others."--Jacket

Acting out : invented melodrama in contemporary photography by Kathleen A Edwards( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The University of Iowa Museum of Art is pleased to present Acting Out, an exploration of the significant work in contemporary photography which features invented melodrama. This exhibition of some of the best contemporary art with narrative qualities furthers the work of the Museum to integrate the visual arts into the life of our University. The University of Iowa has long been renowned for producing writers of fiction, but the study of narrative images cuts across many disciplines. Kathleen Edwards is to be congratulated on producing an exhibition of high artistic quality as well as an occasion for thinking and teaching about images."--Jacket
Louise Fishman by Louise Fishman( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Long overdue, this monograph on Louise Fishman explores the artist's commitment to abstract painting across nearly five decades of boundary pushing work. Fishman is best known for her large-scale gestural absractions, which are at once energetic and orderly, technically masterful yet emotionally evocative. Accompanying the first-ever comprehensive museum survey of Fishman's paintings and drawings as well as a concurrent exhibition devoted to the artist's lesser-known work in small-scale painting and sculpture, this book presents the full story of the artist's roving explorations in abstraction, revealing the remarkable range of her material investigations."
If the face had wheels by Dana Schutz( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offering the first comprehensive look at one of the most exciting young artists working today, this book presents a decade-long retrospective of Dana Schutz's work. Dana Schutz plumbs the depths of humor and horror, fantasy and reality in her colorful, expressive paintings. This exhibition catalog features paintings and drawings created by Schutz since 2001. Each of her wildly inventive series is represented, beginning with Frank as a Proboscis Monkey, which wittily depicts the last man on earth, to her current Verb paintings, in which a woman attempts to perform three incongruous activities at once. Schutz's commentary on twenty-firstcentury politics, celebrity, religion, and mores is both absurdist and prescient. Her works are splashed with vibrant color and enriched with tactile brushwork. Schutz combines traditional technique with innovative content to create ambitious, idiosyncratic paintings for our anxious age. Schutz is the recipient of the 2011 Roy R. Neuberger Prize awarded every two years to an artist for an early career survey and monograph. This volume also features an essay by art historian Cary Levine and an interview with the artist by exhibition curator Helaine Posner
Hannah Wilke : gestures by Tracy Fitzpatrick( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fully illustrated, color exhibition catalogue is produced in conjunction with the exhibition, Hannah Wilke: Gestures. The catalogue features works by Wilke, never before seen, as well as works not seen in over forty years. It contains a scholarly essay by exhibition curator Tracy Fitzpatrick, the transcript of a panel discussion held at the Neuberger Museum of Art between scholars Saundra Goldman, Tom Kochheiser, and Griselda Pollock on Wilke's art and legacy, and the first published chronology of Hannah Wilke's artistic practice
Nina Chanel Abney : royal flush by Nina Chanel Abney( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue accompanies the exhibition 'Nina Chanel Abney: Royal Flush', a ten-year survey of one of the most provocative and iconoclastic artists working today. Abney is at the forefront of a generation of artists that is unapologetically revitalizing narrative figurative painting, and as a skillful story-teller, she visually articulates the complex social dynamics of contemporary urban life. Her works are informed as much by mainstream news media as they are by animated cartoons, video games, hip-hop culture, celebrity websites, and tabloid magazines. She draws on these sources to make paintings replete with figures, numbers, and words that appear to have tumbled onto the canvas with the stream-of-consciousness immediacy of text messages, pop-up windows, a Twitter feed, or the scrolling headlines of an incessant twenty-four-hour news cycle. By engaging loaded topics and controversial issues with irreverence, humor, and lampooning satire, Abney's works are both pointed contemporary genre scenes as well as scathing commentaries on social attitudes and inequities.Abney's first solo museum exhibition, Royal Flush will be comprised of the artist's large-scale paintings, along with smaller collages and watercolors. While her work has strong ties to important modernist forebears such as Robert Colescott, Stuart Davis, Romare Bearden, and Faith Ringgold, among others, its distinct and arresting visual articulation of the human condition is inherently suited to the rapid-fire and unceasing quality of the Digital Age. Her dense and colorful iconography, a skillful engagement with serious issues, and the provocative way in which she addresses them has brought this young artist increasing critical acclaim in the contemporary art world." -- Publisher's description

Milton Avery & the end of modernism by Karl Emil Willers( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Milton Avery and the End of Modernism looks at work by the artist who brought the sketch, with its spontaneity, movement, and fleetingness, to the status of a finished painting. The works reproduced in this exhibition catalog feature Avery's intense saturated color fields, the simplification of form, and figures that emphasize the flatness of canvas surface. In the four chapters that open the catalog, Karl Emil Willers takes a concerted look at the contributions of Milton Avery as a significant figurative painter from the late 1920s through the early 1960s, and at the development of Avery's signature paintings from his idiosyncratic drawing style that captures the essence of a person, place, or time. Placing Avery's work within a long history of modernist practice that recognizes the artist's sketch as a "final, complete and a self-sufficient work of art," Willers argues that, within the emergence of his avant-garde style, Avery can be seen as one of the preeminent American painters of his time, exerting great influence among both his contemporaries and subsequent generations of artists."--SUNY Press
Tania Bruguera : on the political imaginary by Helaine Posner( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Becoming disfarmer by Mike Disfarmer( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book uses a sequence of over 100 images to tell the story of Mike Disfarmer's vernacular portraiture and its transformation into art. This monograph features his vintage prints along with a selection of enlargements made from his negatives in the 1970s, through which his work first became known. Disfarmer's postcard-size vintage photographs are reproduced in full color to accurately convey their varied surfaces, and most of the examples are shown in the condition in which they were found, rather than as restored images. This publication also reproduces the backs of selected vintage photographs and provides transcriptions of all handwritten notes that appear on the objects. In addition, the monograph contains reproductions of newspaper pages in which Disfarmer's images appeared, locally produced historical journals that include images by other photographers who worked at the same time and in the same region as Disfarmer and album pages like those for which Disfarmer's photographs were originally made
