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

15 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 388 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

"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

We wanted a revolution : black radical women, 1965-85 : a sourcebook( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on the work of black women artists, We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965-85 examines the political, social, cultural, and aesthetic priorities of women of color during the emergence of second-wave feminism. It is the first exhibition to highlight the voices and experiences of women of color--distinct from the primarily white, middle-class mainstream feminist movement--in order to reorient conversations around race, feminism, political action, art production, and art history in this significant historical period. Presenting a diverse group of artists and activists who lived and worked at the intersections of avant-garde art worlds, radical political movements, and profound social change, the exhibition features a wide array of work, including conceptual, performance, film, and video art, as well as photography, painting, sculpture, and printmaking."--Brooklyn Museum website, viewed April 11, 2017
Judith Scott : bound & unbound by Judith Scott( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fascinating and generously illustrated book offers an in-depth look at the art and life of Judith Scott, and accompanies the first major exhibition of her artworks in the U.S. Judith Scott's story has become widely known: born with Down syndrome, and institutionalized for thirty years, before moving to the Bay Area to be near her twin sister, Scott had long-hidden artistic sensibilities that were first discovered at the visionary Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland. There, she developed an affinity for fiber and other found materials, creating remarkable and idiosyncratic objects--fastidiously assembled structures that radically challenge our attempts to define them as sculpture. In addition to illustrations of more than forty essential works, this volume includes a number of essays that trace Scott's artistic development and her place within the field of contemporary art as a whole. A previously unpublished interview with Scott's twin sister, Joyce, tells the story of how Judith's move from relative isolation to a supportive and nurturing environment allowed an unexpected and extraordinary talent to emerge and flourish."--Publisher description

"The North East of England boasts one of the greatest concentrations of recent public sculpture in Britain. It also contains an extraordinary variety of public monuments and sculpture of all ages. For the first time Public Sculpture of North-East England documents over 450 of these works with full details of their materials, physical condition, ownership and commissioning and also their use and interpretation at various, times in history. From this emerges a picture both of the development of public sculpture and monuments in the region and of the contribution these objects make to ideas of local identity."--BOOK JACKET
