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

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 263 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."--book jacket
A bigger splash : painting after performance( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 213 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

Florian Hecker : chimerizations by Florian Hecker( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 86 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

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
