Lifelike by Siri Engberg( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is it real? Lifelike invites a close examination of art since the late 1960s based on commonplace objects and situations that are startlingly realistic, often playful and sometimes surreal--works that investigate the quieter side of the quotidian. While artists such as Vija Celmins, Rudolf Stingel and Paul Sietsema employ illusionistic painting and drawing, others' use of materials is surprising--Thomas Demand's video of what appears to be a rainstorm is made from animated candy wrappers; Susan Collis' sculpture of construction debris is fashioned from exotic hardwoods, mother of pearl and silver. What binds these artists together is their rejection of the easy route technology might offer in favor of labor-intensive fabrication. Featuring painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, video and installations by more than 40 artists, Lifelike is the first publication to address the recent history of artists using these strategies across media

Georges Vantongerloo : a longing for infinity : 3 November 2009-22 February 2010 by Georges Vantongerloo( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The catalogue is published on the occasion of the first individual exhibition of Georges Vantongerloo in Spain. The catalogue reveals the grounding of his work in the re-conceptualisation of pictorial and sculptural space that marked the abstract tendencies in art of the early 20th century. In the 1920s an important part of the Vantongerloo's investigation was centred on colour as physical and perceptive phenomenon. Later, Vantongerloo will conceive his works according to strictly geometric rules, algebraic afterwards, to turn, thus, into the founder of the mathematical thought in art in our epoch. Genuine pioneer in the abstract sculpture field, the artist will continue, after 1945, proposing peculiar versions of that kind of sculpture, abandoning all the reference to a built geometry, and opening to a subjective approach to the universe of cosmology."--Jacket

Freak art scrapbook : Chicago's Armory show in print, 1913( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1913, the year that the Armory Show hit Chicago, an anonymous Chicago artist gathered every newspaper clipping from the infamous Art Institute exhibition into a sensational handmade document. Freak Art Scrapbook presents this folk ledger of the key showcase of American and European art in the early 20th century, a collection of witty and vitriolic snippets, much of it dripping with satire as nearly an entire city took to lampooning modern art. Lovingly reproduced in all its bilious, acidic yellow, sporting pre-jazz cartoons that snicker repeatedly at Duchamp's "Nude Descending A Staircase," the scrapbook in fact turns out to be a complex and many layered artifact, not only a register of the Midwestern response to modernism, but a fascinating glimpse of the central arguments about populism and the vanguard."--Publisher's website

“I’d like to start with a phrase I‘ve heard you use: ’quixotic confluences’—things that come together in totally unforeseen ways that continue to resonate. You told me that sometimes you begin a work by responding to a story or event, and that during the course of this pursuit, something else tends to come up which overlays the piece.”
