Picasso and the allure of language by Susan Greenberg Fisher( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout his life, Pablo Picasso had close friendships with writers and an abiding interest in the written word. This groundbreaking book, which draws on the collections of Yale University, traces the relationship that Picasso had with literature and writing in his life and work. Beginning with the artist's early associations with such writers as Gertrude Stein, Guillaume Apollinaire, Max Jacob, and Pierre Reverdy, the book continues until the postwar period, by which time Picasso had become a worldwide celebrity. Distinguished authorities in art and literature explore the theme of Picasso and language from historical, linguistic, and visual perspectives and contextualize Picasso's work within a rich literary framework. Presenting fascinating archival materials and written in an accessible style, Picasso and the Allure of Language is essential reading for anyone interested in this great artist and the history of modernism."--Publisher's description
Escultura social : a new generation of art from Mexico City by Julie Rodrigues Widholm( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mexico City has emerged as a thriving center of contemporary art. Escultura Social: A New Generation of Art from Mexico City features recent work by a group of artists whose influence has already extended far beyond Mexico and focuses on how they have contributed to an international dialogue through their use of nontraditional materials, new media, and critical perspectives." "This book takes Joseph Beuys's idea of "social sculpture," or escultura social, as a multivalent reference point for understanding how these socially engaged works promote a demystified and democratic concept of art-making. Featuring the work of twenty artists, this bilingual volume includes several artists' writings by Stefan Bruggemann and Mario Garcia Torres, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Yoshua Okon, and Pedro Reyes - about artist-run exhibition spaces. Critical essays on the contemporary Mexican scene and relevance of Beuys's ideas are accompanied by illustrated texts on each artist in this unique and important book."--Jacket

Wangechi Mutu : a fantastic journey by Wangechi Mutu( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This richly illustrated full-color catalog accompanies the first major solo museum exhibition and most comprehensive survey of the artist Wangechi Mutu's work, on view at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University from March 21, 2013, through July 21, 2013, before traveling to the Brooklyn Museum. Born in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1972, and now based in Brooklyn, Mutu renders the complex global sensibility of the early twenty-first century through a distinctly hybrid aesthetic. She combines found materials and magazine cutouts with sculpture and painted imagery, sampling from sources and phenomena as diverse as African traditions, international politics, the fashion industry, and science fiction. In her work, Mutu marries poetic symbolism with sociopolitical critique to explore issues of gender, race, war, colonialism, and, particularly, the exoticization of the black female body. The many images included in Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey highlight the most important and iconic works that Mutu has created since the mid-1990s, as well as portray new collages, drawings, videos, and site-specific installations. The catalog also offers an intimate look into her sketchbooks and includes an interview with the artist conducted by the exhibition's curator, Trevor Schoonmaker. Essays by Schoonmaker, the art historian Kristine Stiles, and the critic, musician, and producer Greg Tate are paired with an illustrated chronology of Mutu's work."--Publisher's website
Archibald Motley : jazz age modernist by Archibald John Motley( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring more than 140 colour illustrations, this catalogue accompanies the first full-scale survey in 20 years of the work of Archibald John Motley, Jr. (1891-1981), a master colourist and radical interpreter of urban culture. Motley's brilliant yet idiosyncratic paintings - simultaneously expressionist and social realist - have captured worldwide attention with their rainbow-hued, syncopated compositions. The catalogue includes the artist's depictions of African American life in early-twentieth-century Chicago, as well as his portraits and archetypes, portrayals of African American life in Jazz Age Paris, and renderings of 1950s Mexico--
Southern accent : seeking the American South in contemporary art( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring the work of sixty artists and including 300 illustrations, the catalog 'Southern Accent' accompanies a major contemporary art exhibition that questions and explores the complex and contested space of the American South. This unprecedented exhibition investigates the many realities, fantasies, and myths of the South that have long captured the public's imagination, while presenting a wide range of perspectives that create a composite portrait of southern identity through contemporary art. It looks at the South as an open-ended question and concept in itself by encompassing a broad spectrum of media and approaches, demonstrating that southernness is more of a shared sensibility than any one definable culture or style. While the exhibition includes artwork from the 1950s to the present, it primarily focuses on the past thirty-five years. With numerous contributions by artists, scholars, musicians, and poets, a music-listening library, and a timeline of scholarship on southern art, this catalog redefines the way we look at the South in contemporary art. 00Exhibition: Nasher Museum of Art, Duke University, Durham, USA (01.09.2016-08.01.2017)

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carlo Dolci (1616-1687), arguably the greatest painter in 17th-century Florence, was admired and patronized by the city's leading families. Best known for his half-length and single-figure devotional pictures, Dolci was also a gifted painter of altarpieces and portraits. Written by a team of distinguished scholars, The Medici's Painter offers new archival discoveries and insights and features cross-disciplinary approaches to Dolci's life and art and the cultural and political contexts in which he worked. The volume sheds new light on Dolci's significant and impressive body of work. The painter understood the power of his paintings to inspire contemporaries, and his works continue to compel individuals to look closely and feel deeply about art.

Nina Chanel Abney : royal flush by Nina Chanel Abney( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue accompanies the exhibition 'Nina Chanel Abney: Royal Flush', a ten-year survey of one of the most provocative and iconoclastic artists working today. Abney is at the forefront of a generation of artists that is unapologetically revitalizing narrative figurative painting, and as a skillful story-teller, she visually articulates the complex social dynamics of contemporary urban life. Her works are informed as much by mainstream news media as they are by animated cartoons, video games, hip-hop culture, celebrity websites, and tabloid magazines. She draws on these sources to make paintings replete with figures, numbers, and words that appear to have tumbled onto the canvas with the stream-of-consciousness immediacy of text messages, pop-up windows, a Twitter feed, or the scrolling headlines of an incessant twenty-four-hour news cycle. By engaging loaded topics and controversial issues with irreverence, humor, and lampooning satire, Abney's works are both pointed contemporary genre scenes as well as scathing commentaries on social attitudes and inequities.Abney's first solo museum exhibition, Royal Flush will be comprised of the artist's large-scale paintings, along with smaller collages and watercolors. While her work has strong ties to important modernist forebears such as Robert Colescott, Stuart Davis, Romare Bearden, and Faith Ringgold, among others, its distinct and arresting visual articulation of the human condition is inherently suited to the rapid-fire and unceasing quality of the Digital Age. Her dense and colorful iconography, a skillful engagement with serious issues, and the provocative way in which she addresses them has brought this young artist increasing critical acclaim in the contemporary art world." -- Publisher's description
Black mirror = Espejo negro by Pedro Lasch( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lines of attack : conflicts in caricature( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lines of control : partition as a productive space by Iftikhar Dadi( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lines of Control: Partition as a Productive Space explores the creation and maintenance of borders, both physical as well as psychological, through the works of artists primarily from South Asia. These artists focus on the idea of partition as a productive space-where nations are made through forging new identities and relationships; reconfiguring memory and creative forgetting; re-writing history and the making of myths; and through the creation and patrolling of borders. Developed by the nonprofit arts organization Green Cardamom, Lines of Control: Partition as a Productive Space originated in London in 2009 as an exhibition focused on South Asian artists and the division of India in 1947. The project later expanded to a larger exhibition at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University and the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, incorporating works by artists from countries such as Mexico, Lebanon, and Ireland
