Materializing Six Years : Lucy R. Lippard and the emergence of conceptual art( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1973 the critic and curator Lucy R. Lippard published Six Years, a book with possibly the longest subtitle in the bibliography of art: The dematerialization of the art object from 1966 to 1972: a cross-reference book of information on some esthetic boundaries: consisting of a bibliography into which are inserted a fragmented text, art works, documents, interviews, and symposia, arranged chronologically and focused on so-called conceptual or information or idea art with mentions of such vaguely designated areas as minimal, anti-form, systems, earth, or process art, occurring now in the Americas, Europe, England, Australia, and Asia (with occasional political overtones) edited and annotated by Lucy R. Lippard. Six Years, sometimes referred to as a conceptual art object itself, not only described and embodied the new type of art-making that Lippard was intent on identifying and cataloging, it also exemplified a new way of criticizing and curating art. Nearly forty years later, the Brooklyn Museum takes Lippard's celebrated experiment in curated concatenation as a template, turning a book that resembled an exhibition into an exhibition materializing the ideas in her book. The artworks and essays featured in this publication recall the thrill that was tangible in Lippard's original documentation, reminding us that during the late sixties and early seventies all possible social and material parameters of art (making) were played with, worked over, inverted, reduced, expanded, and rejected. By tracing Lippard's own activities in those years, the book also documents the early blurring of boundaries among critical, curatorial, and artistic practices. With more than 200 images of work by dozens of artists (printed in color throughout), this book brings Lippard's curatorial experiment full circle."--Publisher's website
An eye on the modern century : selected letters of Henry McBride by Henry McBride( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henry McBride (1867-1962) became a towering figure in art criticism during a long career that began in 1913 - the year of the famous Armory Show in New York that opened American eyes to avant-garde developments in European art - and continued until the advent of Abstract Expressionism in the late 1940s and early 1950s. In this collection of letters, Henry McBride describes some of the most important events and figures of twentieth-century modernism

The essential Cindy Sherman by Catherine Morris( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and German and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cindy Sherman has had a profound influence on the artists of her generation. Alluring and repellent, her hilarious art treats issues of femininity, the role of women in society, sexuality, and the act of making photographs. In Sherman's portrayals of B-grade '50s and '60s Hollywood heroines, fashion models, and subjects from Old Masters paintings, she serves as subject and object of her own work. Sherman's newer work catapults artificial body parts, decapitated dolls, and grisly scenes of violence to the fore. Do you know why: We are so engaged, amused, and horrified by Cindy Sherman's images? Sherman's photographs of herself are not really self-portraits? Sherman's photographs are Rorschachs for the end of the 20th century?--Résumé de l'éditeur
