Mike Kelley by John C Welchman( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in 3 languages and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A tour of the iconoclastic artist's often outlandish work. Los Angeles-based sculptor, performance and installation artist Mike Kelley is one of the most important American artists to have emerged from the 1980s. Best known for his assemblage sculptures made from stuffed children's toys, often set upon the 'stage' of a homemade afghan, Kelley draws from popular culture as well as the modernist traditions of the found object and collage to comment on late twentieth-century American society. Familiar with his work from presentations at Documenta X (1997), and major solo museum exhibitions worldwide throughout the 1990s, Mike Kelley's audience is very broad, ranging from academics and teenage comic-book cultists to curators of the world's most prestigious museums

Jack Smith and the destruction of Atlantis by Mary Jordan( Visual )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of interviews and clips by and about the revolutionary American artist Jack Smith. Filmmaker, actor, and pioneer of underground cinema, he is generally acclaimed as a founding father of American Performance Art, and has been critically recognized as a master photographer. The film also delves into Smith's tenuous relationship with Andy Warhol -- who adopted Smith's ideas in his own work.

Mike Kelley : Educational complex by John Miller( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mike Kelley's Educational Complex (1995) presents forgotten spaces as subjective frames for trauma, real or imagined. A "complex" can be an architectural configuration, a psychological syndrome or a political apparatus. In this book, John Miller approaches Educational Complex through corresponding lines of enquiry, considering the representation of Kelley's schools (and his childhood home) as architectural models; popular fantasies associated with false memory syndrome; and the liberal democratic premises underpinning education"--

Interviews By Mike Kelley : 1986-2004 by Mike Kelley( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What do Mike Kelley and his cronies and sometime collaborators Jim Shaw, Paul McCarthy and Tony Oursler talk about when they talk about art' You'll have to crack this book to find out, but expect a heady mix of pop culture, sex, violence, politics and, as always, a strong dose of humor. This volume brings together for the first time Kelley's major interviews with those artists and others over the past 18 years. Kelley is naturally a provocative commentator on his own work and the work of others, but he's also an informed and serious student of his interviewees' oeuvres and asks questions that explore the soul of artistic imagination. Surrealism, the 1960s and institutional cowardice provide fodder for these fascinating conversations
Mike Kelley : memory ware : a survey by Mike Kelley( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the course of his four-decade career, Mike Kelley (1954 - 2012) created a rich oeuvre that critically questioned aesthetic conventions and examined all forms of culture. The approximately one hundred "Memory Ware" and associated works were made during the first decade of the 21st century. Named for a genre of North American folk art in which everyday utilitarian objects, such as vases, are coated with a claylike substance into which are embedded small objects including shells, beads and buttons, Kelley's "Memory Ware" series consists both of wall-hung works (known as "Memory Ware Flats") and freestanding pieces. The artist's appropriation of this folk tradition in two dimensions eliminates recognizable underlying objects and expands the original method to include a wider variety of keepsakes. The "Memory Ware" sculptures, by contrast, juxtapose dense clusters of found objects with minimally or undecorated areas and reintroduce the coherence of an overall structure. --Exhibition: Hauser & Wirth, New York, United States (03.11.-23.12.2016)

Introducing Tony Conrad : a retrospective by Tony Conrad( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout his six-decade career, Tony Conrad (American, 1940-2016) forged a unique path through numerous artistic movements, from Fluxus and minimalism to the Pictures Generation and beyond. Best known for his pioneering contributions to minimal music and structural film in the 1960s, he also helped define a vast range of culture, including rock music and public television. This catalogue accompanies the first museum survey dedicated to works Conrad presented in museum and gallery settings, part of an ongoing reappraisal of his creative achievement. Inspired by the spoken, written, and performed introductions he regularly used to help frame screenings and presentations of his works, it reveals an unparalleled innovator in painting, sculpture, film, video, performance, and installation, tenaciously working to undermine the boundaries between artistic categories. Offering an in-depth introduction to Conrad's life and career, this richly illustrated volume highlights selected works dated from 1966 to 2016, including his early films; the 'Yellow Movies' and related projects in which he pickled, deep-fried, and otherwise treated film as a sculptural and performative material; his improvised sound sculptures, the 'Invented Acoustical Tools'' his ambitious films about power relations in the army and in prisons; his wide-ranging video art practice; and his many sculptures and installations that evoke and critique what he perceived as an emerging culture of surveillance, control, and containment. Nearly twenty writings by Conrade himself, some previously unpublished, are presented alongside new contributions by Rachel Adams, Vera Alemani, Cathleen Chaffee, Constance DeJong, Diedrich Diederichsen, Anthony Elms, David Grubbs, Henriette Huldisch, Branden W. Joseph, Andrew Lampert, Christopher Müller, Annie Ochmanek, Tony Oursler, Tina Rivers Ryan, Jay Sanders, Paige Sarlin, and Christopher Williams, and additional texts and interviews by Frederick Eberstadt, Isabel Eberstadt, Tyler Hubby, Mike Kelley, Gareth Long, Toby Mussman, and Cathleen Steffan. An extensive back matter section includes a chronology of Conrad's life and selected exhibition history, filmography, videography, and bibliography."
