Inverted odysseys : Claude Cahun, Maya Deren, and Cindy Sherman by Lynn Gumpert( )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Claude Cahun, Maya Deren, and Cindy Sherman were born in different countries, in different generations - Cahun in France in 1894, Deren in Russia in 1917, and Sherman in the United States in 1954. Yet they share a deeply theatrical obsession that shatters any notion of a unified self. All three try out identities from different social classes and geographic environments, extend their temporal range into the past and future, and transform themselves into heroes and villains, mythological creatures, and sex goddesses. The premise of Inverted Odysseys is that this expanded concept of the self - this playful urge to "try on" other roles - is more than a feminist or psychological issue
Shifting tides : Cuban photography after the revolution by Tim B Wride( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The prologue gallery provides a context within which to understand the images produced after the revolution. Included in the prologue are examples of the iconic photographs made by important photographers of the revolution s military struggle, such as Korda and Osvaldo Salas. These images reflect the heroic personalities of the revolution and establish a baseline from which three generational shifts in the conception and uses of photography can be traced."

Inventing downtown : artist-run galleries in New York City, 1952-1965 by Melissa Rachleff( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This enlightening and thought-provoking look at New York City's postwar art scene focuses on the galleries and the artists that helped transform American art. While the achievements of New York City's most renowned postwar artists (de Kooning, Pollock, Rothko, Franz Kline) have been studied in depth, a large cadre of lesser-known but influential artists came of age between 1952 and 1965. Also understudied are the early, experimental works by more well- known figures such as Mark di Suvero, Jim Dine, Dan Flavin, and Claes Oldenburg. Focusing on innovative artist-run galleries, this book invites readers to reevaluate the period uncovering its diversity, creativity, and nuances, and tracing the spaces influence during the decades that followed. Inventing Downtown charts the development of artist-run galleries in Lower Manhattan from the early 1950s to the mid-1960s, showing how the area's multicultural spirit played a major role in shaping the artworks exhibited there. The book explores 14 key spaces in which styles such as Pop, Minimalism, and performance and installation art thrived. Excerpts from 33 revealing interviews with artists, critics, and dealers, conducted by Billy Klüver and Julie Martin, offer unique personal insight into the eras creative milieu. Taken together, the books essays and interviews provide a distinctly new assessment of how downtown New York's fertile environment nurtured an innovative art scene. -- publisher's statement

Toxic beauty : the art of Frank Moore by Klaus Kertess( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Toxic Beauty: The Art of Frank Moore is the most comprehensive presentation to date of work by this remarkable artist whose life was cut short by AIDS. Curated by independent scholar Susan Harris with Grey Art Gallery director Lynn Gumpert, the exhibition features approximately 35 major paintings and over 50 gouaches, prints, and drawings, as well as numerous sketchbooks, films, maquettes, source materials, and ephemera. The exhibition is accompanied by an amply illustrated catalogue with essays by Susan Harris, renowned critic Klaus Kertess, and artist/activist Gregg Bordowitz. Harris evokes a compelling portrait of the multitalented artist as revealed through his personal papers and notebooks. Kertess examines Moore's recurrent themes and eclectic influences while situating the artist's work within a larger art historical context. Finally, Bordowitz sheds light on Moore's passionate AIDS activism and how his work conveys feelings of loss, fear, and hope as well as gay male identity during the early days of the pandemic. The catalogue will also include a selected bibliography, chronology, and excerpts from Moore's own writings. Both the exhibition and catalogue will highlight previously unpublished archival material--such as sketchbooks and documents--culled from the vast Frank Moore Papers, totaling 44 linear feet, housed at NYU's Fales Library. These archival materials provide fascinating insights into Moore's life and work: the sketchbooks reveal his penchant for journaling and his extraordinary draftsmanship. The drawings include detailed preparatory studies for his large-scale paintings and custom-crafted frames, as well as lighthearted vignettes of a more personal and even humorous nature."--Publisher's website
John Storrs : machine-age modernist by Debra Bricker Balken( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A feast of astonishments : Charlotte Moorman and the avant-garde, 1960s-1980s by Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charlotte Moorman was a bold, barrier-breaking musician and performance artist and a tireless champion of experimental art, whose avant-garde festivals in New York City brought new art forms to a broad public. To date, recognition of Moorman has been limited mostly to her collaborations with other artists, including composer John Cage and pioneering multimedia artist Nam June Paik, and to her 1967 performance of Paik's "Opera Sextronique," for which she became known as the "topless cellist" after being arrested on indecency charges. A Feast of Astonishments looks deeper to portray Moorman as a leading international figure in her own right. With more than 150 color images and essays by art historians, curators, and musicologists, this catalog will offer a fresh perspective and complement an exhibition that opens at Northwestern University's Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art in January 2016 before traveling to New York University's Grey Art Gallery in Manhattan and the Museum der Moderne in Salzburg, Austria. The exhibition will feature original sculptures, photographs, video, props and costumes, annotated music scores, archival materials, film clips, and audio recordings, many drawn from the Charlotte Moorman Archive at the Charles Deering McCormick Library of Special Collections, Northwestern University Library. The exhibition is a partnership between the Block Museum and the Northwestern University Libraries [Publisher description]

NeoRealismo : the new image in Italy, 1932-1960( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally used for Fascist propaganda, the camera in Italy became a tool for artists to reveal the poverty and oppression of their country and a way to instigate positive social development and create a national identity. The NeoRealismo style became a call for economic justice as well as an artistic movement that influenced the modern world. The achievements of that movement are celebrated in this book with more than 200 illustrations, including exquisitely reproduced photographs and magazine images as well as film stills and posters. Together these images portray the seismic changes that took place throughout Italy during and after the war. The migration from south to north, the rural and urban poverty, and the desire to establish a national identity are all given expression through the photographers' lenses. Accompanying essays discuss the technological changes that transformed the country, trace the evolution of Neorealist cinema, and explore how writers became part of this revolution. Beautiful, raw, and free of artifice, these images and the people who created them ushered a unique and fascinating moment in modern art history
