Yayoi Kusama : Infinity Mirror Room - Phalli's Field by Jo Applin( )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost a half-century after Yayoi Kusama debuted her landmark installation 'Infinity Mirror Room - Phalli's Field' (1965) in New York, the work remains challenging and unclassifiable. Jo Applin looks at the installation in detail and places it in the context of subsequent art practice and theory as well as Kusama's own (as she called it) 'obsessional art'. This title is part of the 'One Work' book series, which focuses on the artworks that have significantly shaped the way we understand art and its history
Eccentric objects : rethinking sculpture in 1960s America by Jo Applin( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In America during the 1960s, sculpture as an artistic practice underwent a series of radical transformations. Artists including Lee Bontecou, Claes Oldenburg, Lucas Samaras, H.C. Westermann, and Bruce Nauman offered alternative ways of imagining the three-dimensional object. The objects they created were variously described as erotic, soft, figurative, aggressive, bodily, or, in the words of the critic Lucy Lippard, "eccentric." Looking beyond the familiar and canonic artworks of the 1960s, the book challenges not only how we think about these artists, but how we learn to look at the more familiar narratives of 1960s sculpture, such as Pop and Minimalism. Ambivalent and disruptive, the work of this decade articulated a radical renegotiation--rejection, even--of contemporary paradigms of sculptural practice. This invigorating study explores that shift and the ways in which the kinds of work made in this period defied established categories and questioned the criteria for thinking about sculpture."--Publisher's website
Eva Hesse 1965 by Eva Hesse( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1964 the industrialist Friedrich Arnhard Scheidt invited Eva Hesse (1936-1970) and her husband, Tom Doyle, to a residency in Kettwig an der Ruhr, Germany. The following fifteen months marked a significant transformation in Hesse's practice. The artist's studio space was located in an abandoned textile factory that contained machine parts, tools, and materials that served as inspiration for her complex, linear mechanical drawings and paintings. In 1965 Hesse expanded on this theme and began using objects found in the factory and papier-mâché to produce a series of fourteen vibrantly colored reliefs that venture into three-dimensional space with such materials as wood, metal, and cord protruding from the picture plane. With dynamic new scholarship and previously unpublished illustrations, Eva Hesse 1965 highlights key drawings, paintings, and reliefs from this pivotal time and demonstrates how the artist was able to rethink her approach to color, materials, and dimensional space and begin moving toward sculpture, preparing herself for the momentous strides that she would take upon her return to New York."--Publisher's description
Jackson Pollock : blind spots( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jackson Pollock (1912-56) was one of the most radical, influential and provocative American artists of the twentieth century. In 1947 he developed a unique method of dripping trails of paint onto a canvas laid flat on the floor, pioneering the completely abstract 'all-over' style known as abstract expressionism. This lavishly illustrated publication accompanies the first exhibition in over three decades of the next crucial phase of his work, referred to as the black pourings. Produced between 1951 and 1953, these paintings signalled a deliberate move away from the iconic drip technique and, most surprisingly, sometimes even featured figurative elements. Fifty years after the appearance of his groundbreaking essay, Michael Fried has now produced a thorough reappraisal of the works especially for this publication. Essays by Jo Applin, Gavin Delahunty and Stephanie Straine further explore the paintings and their related drawings, regarded as Pollock's most important as a draughtsman, as well as rarely seen sculptures that further illuminate Pollock's experimentations with space, density and figuration"--Publisher's description
Lee Lozano : [in conjunction with the exhibition "Lee Lozano", Moderna Museet, Stockholm, February 13 - April 25, 2010] by Lee Lozano( Book )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The career of American artist Lee Lozano (1930-1999) was brief but extraordinarily intense. Throughout the 1960s, during the transition from Pop art to Minimalism and Conceptualism, and up until her self-imposed exile in the 1970s, Lozano created a genuinely radical and frequently obscene body of work that traversed a gamut of idioms. Her early paintings were executed in a messy cartoon style, oozing with violence and sexuality. By 1967, Lozano was responding to Minimalism and Op art with her abstract Wave paintings. It was also around this time that she initiated a series of actions that tested both the limits of art and acceptable conduct in society, such as smoking pot, masturbating and, mostly notoriously of all, boycotting women. This publication accompanies a retrospective of Lozano's works at Moderna Museet in Stockholm--works which after 40 years remain as witty, acerbic and shockingly fresh as ever."--Publisher description
Lee Lozano : not working by Jo Applin( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first in-depth study of the idiosyncratic ten-year career of Lee Lozano (1930-1999), assuring this important artist a key place in histories of post-war art. The book charts the entirety of Lozano's production in 1960s New York, from her raucous drawings and paintings depicting broken tools, genitalia, and other body parts to the final exhibition of her spectacular series of abstract "Wave Paintings" at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1970. Highly regarded at the time, Lozano is now perhaps best known for Dropout Piece (1970), a conceptual artwork and dramatic gesture with which she quit the art world. Shortly afterwards she announced she would have no further contact with other women. Her "dropout" and "boycott of women" lasted until her death in 1999, by which time she was all but forgotten. This book tackles head-on the challenges that Lozano poses to art history-and especially to feminist art history-attending to her failures as well as her successes, and arguing that through dead ends and impasses she struggled to forge an alternative mode of living. 'Lee Lozano: Not Working' looks for the means to think about complex figures like Lozano whose radical, politically ambiguous gestures test our assumptions about feminism and the "right way" to live and work
Robert Ryman( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is a comprehensive study highlighting the interplay of context and meaning in Robert Ryman's work. Featuring new photography and original essays by a formidable array of scholars and curators, the book is the most expansive and thorough investigation of the work of American painter Robert Ryman in over two decades. Arguing that the relationships between his paintings are key to understanding his diverse output, the book offers more faithful reproductions and subtler details of the paintings than have previously been available, and attends closely to the artist's own strategies of display. Ryman's paintings are readily identified by their predominantly achromatic surfaces, but his exploration of the values and effects of white was never limited to paint. His experimentations with canvas, board, paper, aluminum, fiberglass, and Plexiglas have evolved into a material vocabulary as revolutionary as his use of white. The texts featured here reflect on the importance of Ryman's practice to contemporary art: Robert Storr, curator of Ryman's 1993 retrospective, places the painter in historical context while Courtney J. Martin, curator of his 2015-16 exhibition at Dia Chelsea, looks at Ryman's three-dimensional works. Drawings scholar Allegra Pesenti investigates his drawing practice; music historian John Szwed traces the influence of jazz in Ryman's early works; and artist Charles Gaines asks what, in a Ryman, is real"--

Yayoi Kusama by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama (b. 1929) is arguably Japan's most famous living artist. Her originality, innovation and powerful desire to communicate have propelled her through a career that has spanned six decades. During this time, Kusama has explored painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, collage, film and video, performance and installation, as well as product design. From the late 1950s to the early 1970s Kusama lived in New York and was at the forefront of many artistic innovations in the city. Returning to Japan in her forties, she rebuilt her career, waiting years for the international recognition she has recently achieved. Now in her eightieth year, she continues to make art, extending the range of her large-scale, dazzling installations and relentlessly hand-painting extensive series of minutely detailed figurative fantasy paintings. Kusama has exhibited widely around the world, including representing Japan at the Venice Biennale, and her work is in many major collections. Accompanying the first major retrospective exhibition of the artist's work to be staged in the UK, this lavishly illustrated book features an introductory essay by Tate curator Frances Morris as well as four other substantial essays by leading international critics. Topics covered include Kusama's time in New York, her career after her return to Japan, her installation works and an exploration of her art from a psychoanalytical point of view
Ida Applebroog : Mercy Hospital by Ida Applebroog( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2009 Ida Applebroog's (born 1929) assistants found a box marked "Mercy Hospital." Inside was a series of drawings the artist made nearly 50 years ago, during a period of institutionalization after suffering a debilitating breakdown in San Diego in 1969. During this tumultuous period, Applebroog, by her own account, 'withdrew from the world entirely, for a period hardly able to speak at all." Instead she turned to drawing, producing works in graphite, India ink and watercolors, at times accompanied by text from authors such as Kafka and Freud. The drawings oscillate between the figurative and the abstract, laying bare the female form and calling to mind art-historical precedents informed by psychopathology particularly works produced in early and mid-20th-century France by the likes of Wols. The publication of 'Mercy Hospital', with a text by Jo Applin, is the first time that Applebroog's work from this period has been documented in full."
Alison Wilding by Jo Applin( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alison Wilding RA (b.1948) is one of Britain's foremost sculptors. Tracing the trajectory of her artistic evolution, this original publication provides the first critical survey of Wilding's rich career. Known for her use of contrasting materials and often pairing forms in precarious juxtapositions and balancing acts, recent works combine string, steel and hair, mirrored glass, silicone rubber, alabaster, sand and painted foam. Resisting categorisation, Wilding's sculptural language steps beyond the so-called 'new sculpture' which emerged within Britain in the 1980s, to embrace the European and American vocabularies for producing large-scale abstract sculpture that appeared from the 1960s onwards. Drawing on extensive interviews with the artist and referencing numerous secondary sources, this impeccably researched and beautifully produced publication will situate Wilding's work within its rightful place in the history of modern abstract sculpture.

Philippe Vandenberg : crossing the circle by Philippe Vandenberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philippe Vandenberg's (1952-2009) works on paper are highly personal responses to social issues and political upheavals. Powerful abstract and figurative images about sex, death, good and evil, express Vandenberg's existential despair about the world, as well as his dark sense of humour. His works on paper are distinguished by fluid draughtsmanship in pencil, ink and richly coloured watercolour. They possess a sense of urgency, an economy of means and keen playfulness.

Yayoi Kusama by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

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

La exposición muestra a Kusama como una artista irreductible y esencial en las nuevas narraciones globales del arte contemporáneo y refleja el rol crucial desempeñado por Kusama en el arte de posguerra desde una posición excéntrica: por un lado, se aproxima al pop, a los nuevos realismos y al feminismo en sus instalaciones y faceta pública; por otro, su empleo de la repetición, del monocromo y de la retícula tienen que ver a la vez con la obsesión y la enfermedad mental
