Breakthroughs : avant-garde artists in Europe and America,1950-1990 by John Howell( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fiber : sculpture 1960-present by Glenn Adamson( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fiber: Sculpture 1960-present is the first exhibition in over forty years to examine the development of abstraction and dimensionality in fiber art from the mid-twentieth traditional materials, artists working in fiber manipulate gravity, light, color, mass, and transparency to demonstrate the infinite transformations of the material. Early pioneers such as Magdalena Abakanowicz, Sheila Hicks, and Lenore Tawney spearheaded a revolutionary redefinition of fiber in the 1960s and '70s, showcasing radical, nonrepresentational forms. Fiber: Sculture 1960-present features artworks that range from small-scale weavings to immersive environments. This book includes a range of texts on weavings associated with craft to off-loom sculptures aligned with mainstream art movements; a provocative investigation into the notion of softness in art; an examination of fiber art and its historical predecessor, tapestry, in relation to site-specificity; an account of the exhibitions and, finally, a section of concise essays that survey the distinctive contributions of individual practitioners. -- from dust jacket
Frank Stella 1958 by Harry Cooper( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: For Frank Stella, 1958 was a crucial year. After graduating from Princeton University, he moved to Manhattan and painted a series of monumental, colorful canvases that culminated in the first of his famous "black paintings." This fascinating book focuses on the thirty works he painted that year. The paintings reflect his transformation from a student experimenting with abstract expressionism to a highly original artist whose works changed the course of postwar art. Presenting the entire series of paintings in color for the first time (except lost works known only through black-and-white photographs), this handsome book details the course of Stella's career in 1958. The authors situate his work in relation to that of Carl Andre, with whom Stella shared studio space that year, and Jasper Johns. Their analysis draws on concepts of originality, repetition, assemblage, and optimality. Drawing on new archival findings, firsthand observations of the paintings, and interviews with Stella and members of his circle, this volume enriches our understanding of a fascinating and critical stage in the artist's development
Mark Bradford by Christopher Bedford( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Bradford is best known for dazzling, large-scale abstract paintings that examine the class-, race-, and gender-based economies that structure urban society in the United States. Gathering carefully chosen found and salvaged materials from the area surrounding his studio in the Leimert Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, Bradford engages in an intricate artistic process that involves both creation and destruction. His complex, fractured works address pressing political issues and the media's influence on contemporary society while cataloguing cultural change and the artist's personal responses to societal conditions. The first major book on this leading American artist, Mark Bradford features essays by distinguished authors who investigate how Bradford straddles the line between social critique and formal innovation, playing the two against one another to produce works of seduction and analysis. Topics include Bradford's debt to abstract expressionism, his relationship to the largely unknown history of twentieth-century abstraction by African American artists, his work as a public artist, and his interest in midcentury European collage and decollage practices. --Book Jacket
Leap before you look : Black Mountain College, 1933-1957 by Helen Anne Molesworth( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1933, John Rice founded Black Mountain College in North Carolina as an experiment in making the arts central to learning. Though it operated for only twenty-four years, this pioneering school played a significant role in fostering avant-garde art, music, dance, and poetry, and an astonishing number of important artists taught or studied there. Among the instructors were Josef and Anni Albers, John Cage, Merce Cunningham, R. Buckminster Fuller, Karen Karnes, Willem de Kooning, and M.C. Richards, and students included Ruth Asawa, John Chamberlain, Ray Johnson, Robert Rauschenberg, and Cy Twombly. Leap Before You Look is a singular exploration of this legendary school and the work of the artists who spent time there. Scholars from a variety of fields contribute original essays about diverse aspects of the college--spanning everything from the college's farm program to the influence of the Bauhaus--and about the people and ideas that gave it such a lasting impact. Catalogue entries highlight selected works, including writings, musical compositions, visual arts, pottery, and weaving. The book's fresh approach and rich illustrations convey the atmosphere of creativity and experimentation unique to Black Mountain College that served as an inspiration to so many. This timely volume will be essential reading for anyone interested in art, radical pedagogy, and the enduring legacy of the college. -- Front jacket flap
As painting : division and displacement by Wexner Center for the Visual Arts( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As Painting, which accompanies an exhibition of the same name at the Wexner Center for the Arts, offers thought-provoking new perspective on painting in the United States and Europe since the mid-1960s. It illuminates the flexible boundaries of what can be seen or interpreted "as painting" in relation to sculpture, photography, and architecture, highlighting points of convergence and divergence." "The book features two extended essays, detailed commentaries on each of the twenty-six artists in the exhibition, and fourteen additional essays and other pieces by artists and commentators noted for their engagement with the issues raised here."--Jacket
Part object part sculpture by Helen Anne Molesworth( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Part Object Part Sculpture' maps a genealogy of postwar sculpture that challenges the Minimalist/Post-Minimalist sequence maintained in most accounts of the period
Luc Tuymans by Luc Tuymans( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Luc Tuymans is one of today's most widely admired painters, a continuation of the great tradition of Northern European painting and an enduring influence on younger and emerging artists. As a European child of the 1950s, his relationship to painting is inevitably structured by television, cinema and by the lingering effects of World War II; more recent historical preoccupations have included the dramatic turn of world events post-9/11. Tuymans combines a muted palette with deteriorated surface effect and a singular use of cropping, close-up and sequencing--perfect devices with which to undertake his investigation of the pathological, the banal and the conspiratorial. Published in conjunction with the artist's first full-scale American survey, this is without question the authoritative publication on Tuymans. It features approximately 75 key works from 1978 to the present, and is accompanied by essays analyzing the painter's main concerns, with particular attention paid to his working process and his adaptation of source materials. Helen Molesworth examines themes of sinister banality, Joseph Leo Koerner writes on iconophobia and iconophilia, Ralph Rugoff considers the nature of visual experience in light of Tuymans' recent work, and Bill Horrigan examines cinematic sources. This book is not only the most comprehensive survey of Tuymans' career to date, but also the most thorough chronology of his artistic development."--Publisher's description

Work ethic by Helen Anne Molesworth( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1960s, artists from Alan Kaprow and Yoko Ono to Andy Warhol and Richard Serra stopped making "art" as it has been thought of since the Renaissance. They staged performances that mixed everyday life with theater and in yet other, often ironic, ways challenged the system of marketing, display, and aesthetic discourse that ascribes exceptional monetary as well as cultural value to paintings and sculpture. Work Ethic, published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name organized by The Baltimore Museum of Art, brings together a cross section of such radical endeavors and opens a fresh perspective on their genesis and meaning. Most of the avant-garde interventions considered in Work Ethic entailed performances and other procedures generally interpreted as linking a "dematerialization" of the object with the free play of concepts
Perfect acts of architecture by Jeffrey Kipnis( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Face value : American portraits by Donna M De Salvo( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""What is a portrait today?" is the defining question of this volume. Essays by such leading scholars and critics as Maurice Berger, Kenneth E. Silver, Max Kozloff, and Michele Wallace propose fascinating answers, framing portraiture through its age-old kinship with status and wealth; its employ in fashion, politics, and advertising; and its current association with issues of identity. The catalogue also explores the seemingly quixotic rebirth of studied portraiture in an age of instant image-making; the philosophical difficulties inherent in capturing individual 'essence'; and why portraits of individuals have such cachet in mass-audience advertising."--Jacket
Twice untitled and other pictures (looking back) by Louise Lawler( Book )

Staring back by Chris Marker( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any new film and any new book by French filmmaker Chris Marker is an event. Marker gave film lovers one of their most memorable experiences with La Jetée (1962)--a time-travel montage set after a nuclear war that inspired Terry Gilliam's Twelve Monkeys (1995). His still camerawork is not as well known, but Marker has been taking photographs as long as he has been making films. Staring Back presents 200 black-and-white photographs from Marker's personal archives, taken from 1952 to 2006. Some of the photographs are related to his classic films (which include Le Jetée, Sans Soleil, ¡Cuba Si!, and The Case of the Grinning Cat), others are portraits of famous faces (Simone Signoret, Akira Kurosawa), but most are pictures of people Marker has encountered as he has traveled the world (an extra who appeared in Kurosawa's Ran, a woman seen on a street in Siberia). The central section of the book contains a series of photographs documenting political protests Marker has witnessed, including the march on the Pentagon in 1967, the events of May 1968 in Paris, and the tumultuous 2006 demonstrations protesting the French government's proposed employment policies. The photographs are accompanied by several unpublished texts by Marker, including the English language text of The Case of the Grinning Cat and Marker's annotations for some of the photos. The book--which appears in conjunction with an exhibition at the Wexner Center for the Arts at The Ohio State University--also includes essays by Wexner Center curator Bill Horrigan and art historian Molly Nesbit

James Welling : photographs, 1974-1999 by Sarah Rogers-Lafferty( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hugely influential among contemporary art photographers, James Welling has created beautiful and uncompromising photographs for more than 35 years. Operating in the hybrid ground between painting, sculpture and traditional photography, Welling is first and foremost a photographic practitioner enthralled with the possibilities of the medium. James Welling: Monograph provides the most thorough presentation of the artist's work to date. Since the mid-1970s, Welling's work has explored realism and transparency, abstraction and representation, optics and description, personal and cultural memory, and the material and chemical nature of photography. To date, the artist has been the subject of numerous catalogues addressing his more than 25 bodies of work. Yet no previous book has attempted to link these works and examine the primary threads that run through them all. Sumptuously produced, this volume presents a large selection of recent series, from 2000 through to the present, interspersed with important early and iconic works made in the preceding decades. James Crump, Chief Curator of the Cincinnati Art Museum contributes an extensive introductory essay. Also included are text contributions by Mark Godfrey and Thomas Seelig, plus an interview with Eva Respini, Associate Curator in the Department of Photography at MoMA
