Blurring the boundaries : installation art, 1969-1996 by Hugh Marlais Davies( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and German and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Far from being the latest movement or a new development in contemporary art, installation art, one could argue, is only the most recent manifestation of the oldest tradition in art, going as far back as the prehistoric paintings on cave walls at Lascaux. Fundamental to this work are its habitation and incorporation of a physical site, a connection to real conditions - be they visual, historical, or social - and often, a bridging of traditional art boundaries. The aesthetic power of installation art does not reside in the singular, commodified object but rather in the artwork's ability to become, not merely represent, the continuum of real experience." "Blurring the Boundaries examines the subject of installation art through the permanent collection and exhibition record of the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, an institution with a unique heritage in support of such art dating back to the 1960s."--Jacket
Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and twentieth-century Mexican art : the Jacques and Natasha Gelman collection = Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera y arte mexicano del siglo veinte : la colección de Jacques y Natasha Gelman by Frida Kahlo( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cosponsored by the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; the Dallas Museum of Art; and the Phoenix Art Museum, the bilingual exhibition catalog under review complements the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Twentieth-Century Modern Masters: The Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection. The two collections were mutually exclusive, for the Gelmans furnished their New York apartment with European art and their Mexican homes with Mexican art. Kahlo is represented by ten paintings, Rivera by nine; 34 artists created the additional 90 works. Most are illustrated full page in color, and exhibition curator Olivier Debroise includes short descriptions of the works as well as artist biographies. Art critic Sylvia Navarrete provides a chapter on the Gelmans' appreciation of modern figurative, surrealist, and abstract art and their relationships with many of the artists. The portraits of the now-deceased Gelmans commissioned from Kahlo, Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Rufino Tamayo, Rafael Cidoncha, and Angel Zarraga are particularly haunting. Recommended for all modern art and Mexican art sections of public libraries
Terry Winters : paintings, drawings, prints 1994/2004 by Richard Shiff( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A look at the recent work of Terry Winters, whose diverse and creative output continues to challenge and surprise the art world. Terry Winters's work of the past decade weaves disparate strains of idea, object, and physical operations into the primary logic of his art. His art contains an astonishing array of forms and demonstrates the equally surprising breadth of his artistic language. This retrospective volume continues where the mid-career survey (1992) at the Whitney Museum concluded, presenting the past decade of Winters's innovative work in paintings, prints, drawings, and artists' books. Terry Winters presents the ways in which the artist creates sets and subsets of distinctive works that interact with bodies of previous and current work. Also included are images by the artist that have not previously been exhibited or published. Winters's work is frequently included in conversations and studies relating to the interplay of art and science, and his recent paintings, drawings, and prints reflect his engagement with scientific and computational systems of thought and presentations of information. For Winters, abstract art has become a vehicle not for "reproducing and inventing form but for harnessing forces." By utilizing expressive means, "data becomes pictorial and spatial." This superbly illustrated volume displays the full range of Winters's newest works and the complex relationships that link them to one another
Christo and Jeanne-Claude in the Vogel collection by Molly Donovan( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christo and Jeanne-Claude have created some of the most visually breathtaking works of the twentieth century. From early wrapped objects to monumental outdoor projects such as The Umbrellas, Japan-U.S.A., 1984-91 and Wrapped Reichstag, Berlin, 1971-95, the artists have used fabric - wrapped, draped, and folded over, around, and through natural and constructed forms - to transcend the traditional bounds of painting, drawing, sculpture, and architecture." "This volume spanning forty years of Christo and Jeanne-Claude's remarkable career accompanies an exhibition at the National Gallery of Art of sixty-one works from the collection of Dorothy and Herbert Voqel, whose relationship with the artists dates to 1971. The wonderful breadth of works presented in color and discussed here includes several early packages, models for large-scale public works, preparatory drawings and collages for projects in urban and rural sites, and photographs of the completed projects."--Jacket
Ultrabaroque : aspects of post-Latin American art by Elizabeth Armstrong( Book )

Phenomenal : California light, space, surface by Robin Clark( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1960s and 1970s, a loosely affiliated group of Los Angeles artists--including Larry Bell, Mary Corse, Robert Irwin, James Turrell, and Doug Wheeler--more intrigued by questions of perception than by the crafting of discrete objects, embraced light as their primary medium. Whether by directing the flow of natural light, embedding artificial light within objects or architecture, or playing with light through the use of reflective, translucent, or transparent materials, each of these artists created situations capable of stimulating heightened sensory awareness in the receptive viewer. Phenomenal: California Light, Space, Surface, companion book to the exhibition of the same name, explores and documents the unique traits of the phenomenologically engaged work produced in Southern California during those decades and traces its ongoing influence on current generations of international artists

TRANSactions : contemporary Latin American and Latino art( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and Multiple languages and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Featuring work by forty-eight artists from the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD), this book showcases key works and new commissions that demonstrate the diversity and hybridity of contemporary Latin American art. Highlighting artists who work across media and between disciplines, the exhibition and catalogue reveal connections and encounters between Latinos working within the United States and artists from Latin America, celebrating the heterogeneous nature of contemporary Latin American and Latino art, dismantling preconceptions, and promoting new interpretations."--BOOK JACKET

The uses of photography : art, politics, and the reinvention of a medium( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Uses of Photography examines a network of artists who were active in Southern California between the late 1960s and early 1980s and whose experiments with photography opened the medium to a profusion of new strategies and subjects. These artists introduced urgent social issues and themes of everyday life into the seemingly neutral territory of conceptual art, through photographic works that took on hybrid forms, from books and postcards to video and text-and-image installations. Tracing a crucial history of photoconceptual practice, The Uses of Photography focuses on an artistic community that formed in and around the young University of California San Diego, founded in 1960, and its visual arts department, founded in 1967. Artists such as Eleanor Antin, Allan Kaprow, Fred Lonidier, Martha Rosler, Allan Sekula, and Carrie Mae Weems employed photography and its expanded forms as a means to dismantle modernist autonomy, to contest notions of photographic truth, and to engage in political critique. The work of these artists shaped emergent accounts of postmodernism in the visual arts and their influence is felt throughout the global contemporary art world today."--Page 4 of cover

Lifelike by Siri Engberg( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is it real? Lifelike invites a close examination of art since the late 1960s based on commonplace objects and situations that are startlingly realistic, often playful and sometimes surreal--works that investigate the quieter side of the quotidian. While artists such as Vija Celmins, Rudolf Stingel and Paul Sietsema employ illusionistic painting and drawing, others' use of materials is surprising--Thomas Demand's video of what appears to be a rainstorm is made from animated candy wrappers; Susan Collis' sculpture of construction debris is fashioned from exotic hardwoods, mother of pearl and silver. What binds these artists together is their rejection of the easy route technology might offer in favor of labor-intensive fabrication. Featuring painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, video and installations by more than 40 artists, Lifelike is the first publication to address the recent history of artists using these strategies across media
