Yvonne Rainer : the mind is a muscle by Catherine Wood( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1968, toward the end of a decade that witnessed civil rights protests, the escalation of the war in Vietnam and an expanded notion of artistic practice, Yvonne Rainer presented her evening length work, The Mind is a Muscle, a multipart performance for seven dancers interspersed with film and text. Catherine Wood examines the political and media context in which Rainer chose to use the dance theatre situation and analyses her radical approach to image making in live form. For Wood, The Mind is a Muscle proposed a new model of artwork that presents a dynamic tension between materiality and idea. It made manifest an agitated and contradictory relationship to the idea of 'work' in the context of affluent America, and stripped away the gestural conventions of dance or theatre narrative in an attempt to formulate new kinds of 'social scripts' while manipulating the seductiveness of the image, increasingly being harnessed by capitalism."--Jacket
A bigger splash : painting after performance( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This exhibition will take a new look at the dynamic relationship between performance and painting since 1950. Contrasting key paintings by Jackson Pollock and David Hockney, the exhibition considers two different approaches to the idea of the canvas as an arena in which to act: one gestural, the other one theatrical. The paintings of the Vienna Actionists or the Shooting Pictures of Niki de St Phalle will be re-presented within the performance context that they were made, and juxtaposed with works by artists such as Cindy Sherman or Jack Smith that used the face and body as a surface, often using make-up in work dealing with gender role-play. The exhibition proposes a new way of looking at the work of a number of younger artists whose approach to painting is energised by these diverse historical sources, drawing upon action painting, drag and the idea of the stage set"--Tate website
The world as a stage by Jessica Morgan( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The World as a Stage presents a key group of international contemporary artists who explore in their work the rich historical relationship between visual art and theatre. Covering a variety of media, including installation, sculpture, performance, participatory works and events, the book examines the framing of human presence in the experience of art. The World as a Stage also looks at recent attempts to eliminate the art object entirely by turning the institutional space into a changeable and constantly staged arena in which the audience is as central as player or performer."--BOOK JACKET

Florian Hecker : chimerizations by Florian Hecker( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chimerizations features a radically new form of documentation of Florian Hecker's sound works that dramatize the phenomenon of Auditory Chimaeras. The publication presents the documentation of Hecker's recent sound pieces: Magnitude Estimation, 2010; Hecker Leckey Sound Voice Chimera, 2011; Bregman/Deutsch Chimera, 2011; Chimerization (MIT Project), 2011 Chimerization 2012; and Hinge, 2012. The images, installation-reference and productions stills, have been altered by Hecker using a Sift Flow Algorithm. The result is varied and idiosyncratic, with the same image undergoing multiple translations, effectively creating a visual parallel to the chimeric phenomenon produced in the sound works they document"--Publisher description

Andy Holden, maximum irony! maximum sincerity, 1999-2003 : towards a unified theory of MI!MS : Zabludowicz Collection Annual Commission 2015 by Andy Holden( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andy Holden has created a total work of art about and in the ethos of MI!MS. Founded in Bedford by Holden along with his childhood friends, John Blamey, James MacDowell, Roger Illingworth and Johnny Parry, this art movement asserted that in order to make art one must claim the position of both irony and sincerity in equal and maximum measure. The work takes the form of a feature length film in seven chapters installed in a huge sculpture. It narrates a history of the formation of the MI!MS art movement which included writing ploays and performing songs as well as painting and performance ... A second work, 'Last stop for the Good Old Times (after the Age of Innocence), 1999-2013' is an installation of close to 3000 found images depicting idealised images of childhood ... An act of therapy, theory and obsession, the show attempts to deal with knowledge and naivety as well as irony and sincerity, creating a single work that is both a work about MI!MS and a work of MI!MS

In a sentimental mood( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ouvrage publié à l'occasion de l'exposition présentée à la Galerie des Galeries (Galeries Lafayette), Paris, du 27 juillet au 24 août 2013. Réunissant des oeuvres de Félix Gonzalez-Torres, Jiri Kovanda, Myriam Mechita, Daphné Navarre, Marylène Negro, Jack Pierson, Alessandro Raho et Jimmy Robert, huit artistes de générations et de nationalités différentes, l'exposition imaginée par la commissaire Vanessa Desclaux interroge tour à tour l'universalité et l'extrême singularité du sentiment amoureux. Composée de films, d'installations, de sculptures et de portraits, l'exposition fait cohabiter le désir et la nostalgie, la sensualité et la mélancolie, évoquant la complexité d'une expérience vécue à travers une iconographie contemporaine. Chacune des oeuvres de l'exposition développe une approche unique, puisant dans des registres gestuels, visuels ou sonores afin d'interroger les limites du langage face à la profondeur d'une émotion
