Magritte A to Z by René Magritte( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Belgian painter, printmaker, sculptor, and filmmaker Rene; Magritte (1898-1967) was one of the leading figures in the Surrealist movement, producing some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. His trademark flat, inexpressive manner, combining apparently mundane, everyday scenes with elements of the fantastic or erotic, created a disturbing, dreamlike atmosphere that is all his own. He remained faithful to Surrealism throughout his career and developed a vocabulary of symbols--floating rocks, bowler-hatted men carrying umbrellas, incongruous nudes, concealed or shrouded faces--that is among the most recognizable in modern painting. This book explores the full scope of Magritte's work through the format of an A to Z, fully illustrated in color, with entries written by a range of international scholars. The entries under the letter A alone--Absence, Abstraction, Appropriation, Anonymity, Artifice, Automatism, and Automatic Writing--show how this approach reveals and explores the themes and motivations in this most enigmatic artist's work
Glam : the performance of style by Glam( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Glam emerged in the early 1970s and remains one of the most instantly recognisable - but critically derided - stylistic phenomena of 20th century art and culture. This book is a prism through which to view and refract artistic developments in Europe and North America, shedding new light on the extravagance of art, performance and visual culture at this time
The fifth floor : ideas taking space( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fifth Floor: Ideas Taking Space explores issues and themes related to public participation in the arts from the 1960s to today. Interviews and texts by participating artists from The Fifth Floor exhibition at Tate Liverpool offer illuminating insights into the ways in which artistic approaches accommodate (or undermine) the curatorial commitment to wider public engagement. With contributions from distinguished curators and researchers, the book explores how radical curatorial strategies and approaches to exhibition making cross over into the uncharted territory between art, education, and audience development." --Book Jacket
John Piper by Darren Pih( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set to accompany the John Piper exhibition at the Tate Liverpool and written by its curator, this book presents a comprehensive examination of the English artist's role as champion of modernism in Britain. John Piper (1903-1992) is renowned for his extraordinarily diverse practice that embraced landscape, architectural and abstract compositions, as well as his theatre and stage sets for Benjamin Britten and his stained-glass windows. Tate Liverpool's exhibition is the first to examine his role in European modernism, presenting major works by Piper alongside selected works by artists including Jean Helion and Alexander Calder
