The human factor : the figure in contemporary sculpture by Hayward Gallery( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Human Factor: the Figure in Contemporary Sculpture' brings together the work of 25 leading international artists, in whose practice the human form plays a central role. Over the past 25 years, artists have reinvented figurative sculpture by looking back to earlier movements in art history as well as imagery from contemporary culture. Setting up dialogues with modernist as well as classical and archaic models of art, these artists engage and confront the question of how we represent the 'human' today. Eschewing concerns related to psychological portraiture, these artists use the figure as a catalyst for evoking far-ranging content, including subjects spanning political violence and mortality to sexuality and voyeurism. A unique survey of figurative sculpture today, this highly illustrated volume features newly-commissioned essays by authors including Tate Britain Director, Penelope Curtis, art critic and writer Martin Herbert, Artangel co-director James Lingwood, art historian Lisa Lee and Hayward Gallery Director, and curator of the exhibition, Ralph Rugoff. Alongside full-colour images of the artists' works, the book also includes original and rarely-seen material documenting the creation of these fascinating works."--

Transformation Cindy Sherman - Yinka Shonibare MBE, Paul MCCarthy( Visual )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Costumes and masks, makeup and style, dolls and mannequins, stage and cinema. What strategies do we use to re-fashion identity? Do we seek out excess and extremes in order to see ourselves more clearly? Transformation features the artists Yinka Shonibare MBE, Cindy Sherman, and Paul McCarthy. Yinka Shonibare was born in London but grew up in Lagos, Nigeria and is known for using batik in his costumed dioramas that explore race and colonialism. He also uses painting, sculpture, photography and film in his work that play with the ambiguities and contradictions of his attitude towards the Establishment and its legacies of colonialism and class. In self-reflexive photographs and films, the New Jersey artist Cindy Sherman invents myriad guises, metamorphosing from Hollywood starlet to clown to society matron. Always leaving her works untitled, Sherman refuses to impose descriptive language on her images, relying instead on the viewer's ability to develop narratives, and this is an essential component of appreciating the work. Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, Paul McCarthy's video-taped performances and provocative multimedia installations lampoon police society, ridicule authority, and bombard the viewer with a sensory overload of often sexually-tinged, violent imagery. McCarthy often takes aim at cherished American myths and icons - Walt Disney, the Western and even the Modern Artist - adding a touch of malice to subjects that have been traditionally revered for their innocence or purity
Yinka Shonibare, MBE by Yinka Shonibare( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shonibare employs a wide range of media - sculpture, painting, photography, video, and installation pieces - to explore matters of race, class, cultural identity, and history. The artist is best-known for his use of a Dutch-wax fabric, which, though labeled as "African," actually originated in Dutch Indonesia and was introduced to Africa by British manufacturers via Dutch colonizers in the nineteenth century. Incorporating the fabric into Victorian dresses, covering sculptures of alien figures with it or stretching it onto canvases, Shonibare uses the fabric as a metaphor to address issues of origin and authenticity. Published as a companion to Shonibare's first retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Australia, and the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York, this survey explores all aspects of Shonibare's work, offering a fully comprehensive portrait of his projects. Whether he is lampooning Victorian propriety or commenting on the latent ambiguities of the term "alien," Shonibare makes art."--Jacket

Yinka Shonibare MBE by Yinka Shonibare( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Newly revised and updated, this authoritative book presents the exciting, ironic, and often subversive work of Yinka Shonibare MBE, one of the stars of the international art scene. Born in London and raised in Nigeria, Shonibare employs a diverse range of media--from sculpture, painting, and installation to photography and film--to probe matters of race, class, cultural identity, and history. He is perhaps best known for his signature use of a colorful "African" batik fabric that actually originated in Indonesia and was introduced to Africa in the19th century by British and Dutch colonizers. Incorporated into Victorian costumes, covering sculptures of extraterrestrials, or stretched like canvas for paintings, these vibrant textiles cleverly challenge issues of origin and authenticity. This book--the most comprehensive resource available on Shonibare--presents the best work of the London-based artist's career, including his high-profile project for the Fourth Plinth in London's Trafalgar Square and other innovative public sculptures. Whether lampooning Victorian propriety or commenting on what it means to be an "alien, " Shonibare makes art that challenges straightforward interpretations"--
