Gordon Matta-Clark : anarchitect by Gordon Matta-Clark( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This revealing book looks at the groundbreaking work of Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978), whose socially conscious practice blurred the boundaries between contemporary art and architecture. After completing a degree in architecture at Cornell University, Matta-Clark returned to his home city of New York, where he initiated a series of site-specific works in derelict areas of the South Bronx. The borough's many abandoned buildings, the result of economic decline and middle-class flight, served as Matta-Clark's raw material. His series 'Bronx Floors' dissected these structures, performing an anatomical study of ther ravaged urban landscape. Moving from New York to Paris with 'Conical Interserct', a piece that became emblematic of artistic protest, Matta-Clark applied this same method to a pair of seventeenth-century row houses slatted for demolition as a result of the Centre Pompidou's construction. This compelling volume grounds Matta-Clark's practice against the framework of architectural and urban history, stressing his pioneering activist-inspired approach, as well as his contribution to the nascent fields of social practice and relational aesthetics."
Michel Sittow : Estonian painter at the courts of Renaissance Europe by John Oliver Hand( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michel Sittow (c. 1469-1525) was the greatest Estonian artist of the Renaissance. As his renown as a portraitist spread among the royal courts of Europe in the late fifteenth century, Sittow led the life of the itinerant artist, leaving his native Reval, the Hanseatic port city known today as Tallinn, to reside at courts in Spain, The Netherlands, and Denmark. Michel Sittow: Estonian Painter at the Courts of Renaissance Europe is the first monographic exhibit of this masterful artist's oeuvre. The 144-page catalog with 90 illustrations features rare paintings by Sittow and other art works by his contemporaries, along with insightful essays by leading European and American scholars including John Oliver Hand of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and Greta Koppel of the Art Museum of Estonia, Tallinn.--Provided by publisher

Don't worry, be curious! : 4th Ars Baltica Triennial of Photographic Art by Ars Baltica Triennial of Photographic Art( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The exhibition presents photographs, videos, and installations by 20 artists from the countries bordering the Baltic Sea, works that address the problems and fears resulting from upheavals in present-day society. The exhibition assumes that art can offer impulses and inspire reflection on participation and the power of agency. Invited are artists whose practice is based on the exploration of their social environment. The artists deal with diverse thematic fields such as migration politics, ideas of “normality” and “differentness,” the mechanisms of understanding and misunderstanding, social fears, young people’s various perspectives and concepts of life; the media’s influence on perception, thought, and knowledge; the relation between consumer culture and nature; or the sentimental value of the commonplace. What unites the works is a positive and often humorous prevailing mood that makes the observer want to engage in something new and scrutinize his or her own patterns of perception and thought."--Exhibition website

Jüri Okas by Jüri Okas( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in Estonian and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jüri Okas is seen as iconic both in architecture ? as a member of the Tallinn School and the founder of the architecture bureau J. Okas & M. Lõoke ? and in fine art. Okas?s artistic activity had its beginnings in the 1970s and he has produced work in a wide range of media: happenings, land art, film, photography, and prints from photographs and films. By distancing himself from the officially approved Soviet ideology and being in a complex dialogue with the Western avant-garde, Okas became one of the most fascinating contemporary artists in Estonia. His keen sense of observation and conceptual treatment of space have never ceased to intrigue researchers and critics of different generations.00Two complementary studies are included in the book. Dr. Sirje Helme, a contemporary of Jüri Okas and a long-time interpreter of his work, looks at the considerable gap between young art of the 1970s and the language used by critics to interpret it, claiming that this did not help to prepare the ground for conceptual art, and that Jüri Okas stood quite alone. Dr Andres Kurg, in his article, analyses the in-betweenness of Okas?s visual art, which is expressed by the recurrent motifs of buildings falling into disrepair or being under construction, of walls descending or ascending.00The artist and architect Jüri Okas has contributed a great deal to the exhibition and the book, and the conceptual clarity and refined aesthetics of his work will definitely dictate the form and ways of its reception.00Exhibition: Kumu Art Museum, Tallinn, Estonia (07.04.?27.08.2017).0

Ado Vabbe : Wunderbar by Tiiu Talvistu( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in Estonian and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The monograph Ado Vabbe: Wunderbar by the art historian Tiiu Talvistu (1955?2020) offers a thorough overview of the life and work of the artist, which bridged two centuries, witnessing two world wars and drastic transformations in the society. In addition to a richly illustrated article, the book contains numerous reproductions, a catalogue of Vabbe?s oeuvre, a biography and various appendices. Many of the works have been reproduced for the first time. The book is in Estonian and in English.0Ado Vabbe (1892?1961) is mainly known through the avant-garde oeuvre of his youth, which was constantly transforming and was raised to the pinnacle of the still developing Estonian art life of the 1920s by the members of the literary movement Siuru, for whom Vabbe illustrated numerous books. The writer August Gailit called him a passionate cornet who dancingly walked at the head of the echelon. After an energetic youth, Vabbe suddenly withdrew from the active art life and most of the numerous works that he created in the silence of his studio were unknown to the general public for a long time. He mainly dedicated himself to educating and became a legendary and influential teacher of the Pallas Art School.00Exhibition: Kumu Art Museum, Tallilnn, Estonia (28.08.2020-31.01.2021)
