Dan Graham : beyond by Dan Graham( Book )

14 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume, which accompanies a major retrospective organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, offers the first comprehensive survey of Graham's work. The book's design evokes magazine format and style, after Graham's important conceptual work from the 1960s in that medium. Generously illustrated in color and black and white, Dan Graham: Beyond features eight new essays, two new interviews with the artist, a section of reprints of Graham's own writing, and an animated manga-style "life of Dan Graham" narrative. It examines Graham's entire body of work, which includes designs for magazine pages, drawing, photographs, film and video, and architectural models and pavilions."--Jacket
Blues for smoke( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Covering nearly half a century and including the works of some 50 artists in a wide variety of media, this book looks beyond ideas of musical category to identify the blues as a visual and cultural idiom that has informed multiple generations of artists--from Romare Bearden and William Eggleston to David Hammons and David Simon, creator of the television series The Wire. Generously illustrated with paintings, drawings, photographs, sculpture, installation, and video stills, and containing a wide range of critical writing, poetry, and fiction, the catalog explores topics central to the blues--from articulations of daily life, modes of abstraction and repetition, and self-performance to ecstatic and cathartic expression and metaphors of memory and the archive. Both scholarly and unique, this reimagining of all things "blues" will draw audiences from across cultural and racial boundaries as it celebrates a uniquely American idiom that has made its mark on nearly every contemporary artistic medium"--

Zoe Leonard : Survey by Zoe Leonard( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From aerial landscapes to the Alaskan wilderness, American cities to natural history museums, there are few subjects that Zoe Leonard has not tackled in her 30-year career. Working primarily in photography and sculpture, Leonard consistently confronts the realities of change, love, and loss. This book brings audiences up to date on Leonard's impressive body of work and accompanies a long-awaited retrospective exhibition. It features images and examinations from every one of Leonard's major series, including her early aerial and museum photographs, her landmark works- 'Strange Fruit' and 'Analogue'-and her most recent works, "In the Wake." Essays in the book range from the critical to the personal, including explorations of sexual politics, immigration, and family. Breathtaking in scope and bringing together every facet of Leonard's oeuvre, this volume celebrates Leonard's unflinching eye and her intimate art.

Philip-Lorca diCorcia by Philip-Lorca DiCorcia( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For nearly 30 years Philip-Lorca diCorcia has occupied a crossroads in contemporary photography, challenging the documentary tradition with cinematically built images that perch uncannily between the fictional and the real.

MOCA Focus : Lisa Lapinski : the fret and its variants by Lisa Lapinski( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Leavitt : theater objects by William Leavitt( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A pioneer of Conceptual art in Los Angeles during the late 1960s and 1970s, the painter, installation artist and theater director William Leavitt (born 1941) is above all an artist of narrative devices. Since 1969, his works in all the above media have employed abrupt fragments of popular and vernacular culture and depictions of modernist architecture to construct elusive narratives of cityscapes and environments. The culture and atmosphere of Los Angeles has played a significant role in Leavitt's handling of these themes; classic southern Californian motifs of ever-present artifice and almost washed-out brightness recur throughout his work. Surveying the artist's 40-year career, this volume includes sculptural tableaux, paintings, works on paper, photographs and performances from the late 1960s to the present. Leavitt has created a remarkable oeuvre that has influenced generations of artists, and this volume is both long overdue and highly anticipated."--Publisher description
R.H. Quaytman Morning : Chapter 30 by R. H Quaytman( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, the first museum publication to provide a critical overview of Quaytman's work to date, includes new scholarly essays that contextualize her practice and examine the evolution of her chosen themes. Illustrated with the artist's extensive archive of Polaroids, on which her work is based, the book focuses on the artist's process of formatting her paintings onto wood panels, organizing them into exhibitions that she refers to as "chapters," and her work's site-specific nature, created in dialogue with each exhibition venue's historical, architectural, or social aspects"--

Thomas Ruff - jpegs by Bennett Simpson( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and German and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Ruff is among the most important international photographers to emerge in the last fifteen years, and one of the most enigmatic and prolific of Bernd and Hilla Becher's former students, a group that includes Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, Candida Höfer, and Axel Hutte. In 2007, Ruff completed his monumental Jpegs series in which he explores the distribution and reception of images in the digital age. Starting with images he culls primarily from the Web, Ruff enlarges them to a gigantic scale, which exaggerates the pixel patterns until they become sublime geometric displays of color. Many of Ruff's works in the series focus on idyllic, seemingly untouched landscapes, and conversely, scenes of war, and nature disturbed by human manipulation. Taken together, these masterworks create an encyclopedic compendium of contemporary visual culture that also actively engages the history of landscape painting. A fittingly deluxe and oversized volume, Jpegs is the first monograph dedicated exclusively to the publication of Ruff's remarkable series

The Americans : new art by Bruce Hainley( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The americans. newart. is the first book to survey the most recent wave of American contemporary art. The book features thirty of the most important artists to have emerged from the USA in the last five years, including some young artists who are just starting to establish their international reputations. The last time the American art scene was so active was in the eighties, which saw the emergence of a brat pack of celebrated artists. This phenomenon died along with the economic boom and international attention turned to other countries - including Britain. However, the wave of American artists that began to emerge in the later nineties is carving out a distinct identity for itself."--Jacket
