Georges Braque and the Cubist still life, 1928-1945 by Georges Braque( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This examination of Braque's career features exquisite reproductions and incisive historical and aesthetic investigations of his work leading up to and during World War II. This book offers the first detailed examination of Braque's experiments with still lifes and interiors during a significant, though overlooked, time in his career. One of the leading founders of Cubism, Braque employed the genre of the still life to conduct a lifelong investigation into the nature of perception through the tactile and transitory world of everyday objects. Examining a transitional time between Braque's early Cubist works and his late grand series, this catalog considers his paintings within the cultural and political context of Europe at this time. Reproduced in vivid color, Braque's paintings are accompanied by scholarly essays that explore the rise of Braque's popularity in the US, including his first major retrospective in America, and the reception of his work of the early 1930s and 1940s by German and French critics, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the materials and process employed by the artist as illuminated by an intensive conservation study of select important works."--Publisher's website

In the aftermath of trauma : contemporary video installation by Sabine Eckmann( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The history of the 20th and early 21st centuries is one that is scarred by incomprehensibly violent events with far-reaching effects. It is an era of world wars, totalitarian mass terror, social and ethnic cleansing, revolutions, civil wars, radical uprootings, and terrorism. In the Aftermath of Trauma: Contemporary Video Installations presents the work of five video artists from around the world who employ their medium to explore individual and collective memories of such traumatic experiences. The artists included in the exhibition employ the so-called semidocumentary video format, provocatively hovering between fact and fiction, history and memory, while using cinematic projection spaces. Engaging with trauma as a belated response, they probe ways of comprehension that go beyond the dichotomy of head-on confrontation versus denial or repression to suggest a more nuanced and complex relationship between the original event and its present recollection. The themes and aesthetic forms of these videos are deeply invested in the human subject and its status in today's world. The time of memory and the time of history in these videos confound a direct relationship between subjectivity and history, memory and the real"--Provided by publisher

Thaddeus Strode : absolutes and nothings by Sabine Eckmann( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thaddeus Strode's vibrant large-scale paintings are universes unto themselves: wild mash-ups of California surf and skateboard culture, Zen philosophy, rock music, literature, film, and comic books. "Absolutes and Nothings" marks the artist's first major museum show, presented as part of the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum's "Contemporary Projects" series. Strode's images draw on a wealth of motifs inspired by a broad range of sources in popular culture, freely combined with the artist's own creations. The strength and visual pleasure of Strode's aesthetic come from his self-reflexive combination of painterly styles and incongruous elements, in which enigmatic texts, phantoms, monsters, and castaways play off one another to produce cryptic - and captivating - fantasies. Including over two dozen full-color images of works from 2001 to the present, as well as essays by Sabine Eckmann, Meredith Malone, and Benjamin Weissman, "Absolutes and Nothings" is a fascinating premier monograph from one of our most vital and exciting contemporary visual artists
To see without being seen : contemporary art and drone warfare by Svea Bräunert( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the ubiquitous vision and remote engagement of unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, are redefining contemporary life, their impact is filtering into art and visual culture, generating new investigations into issues of perception, visibility, technology, and fear. Considering an international array of video, sculpture, installation, photography, and web-based projects, To See Without Being Seen: Contemporary Art and Drone Warfare reveals the unique potential of art to further our understanding of--and give visual form to--drone warfare and digital surveillance in today's world. While the drone is the specific point of departure for this investigation, the essays in this book illuminate the ways in which the drone embodies a much broader discussion about the rapidly shifting conditions of perception--of seeing, and of being seen--made possible by advanced technology."--Publisher's description

Spectacle and leisure in Paris : Degas to Mucha( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through the lens of seven scholars, this book examines fine art and commercial design as they both reflected and helped create the vibrant culture of public spectacle in late nineteenth-century Paris. Posters and prints circulated across the city, as the new art form of cinema flourished, all part of a diverse urban climate of leisure that was particularly French. These rich visual materials served to promote the careers and talents of such celebrities as Jane Avril, Loie Fuller, and Sarah Bernhardt. Alphonse Mucha and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec developed the potential of color lithography to meet the demands of these stars, while fine artists ranging from Edgar Degas and Edouard Manet to Pablo Picasso and Edouard Vuillard focused on such spectacles as the racetrack, ballet, cafe-concert, theater, and opera, asserting them as defining elements of Parisian modernity in this image-saturated milieu
Sharon Lockhart : Lunch break III by Sharon Lockhart( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sharon Lockhart: Lunch Break III' is the third volume in a series examining the work of acclaimed video artist and photographer Sharon Lockhart. Known for collaborating with remote or marginal communities such as blue collar workers of the twenty-first century, as she did in 'Sharon Lockhart: Lunch Break I', the artist also blurs the line between photography, video art, and documentary. The results are simultaneously staged and artificial, yet at the same time intimate and deeply human. Her newest museum installations also incorporate artworks and utilitarian objects made by others, expanding upon earlier forms of institutional critique. This book includes essays by curators and scholars who provide an international perspective on the artist's evolving series. Stunningly illustrated, 'Sharon Lockhart: Lunch Break III' serves as a reminder of the power and beauty of Lockhart's art
