Nocturnes by Chris Faust( )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A prominent figure in the Twin Cities art scene, Chris Faust marks the essence of the changing Midwestern landscape by documenting common scenes in an uncommon way. Known for his spectacular panoramic work, Faust is also increasingly admired for his unique night photographs, where he quietly unveils a world we never noticed was there and when the darkest hours evoke a mood of mystery and surrealism. The palette of light and shadow heightens our senses by revealing the stillness and ambiguities of the landscape. Nocturnes, a beautiful collection of more than seventy tritone photographs, is a visual record of our world as few ever see it: during the nighttime hours. Emphasizing the passage of time as well as the necessity for change, the images reflect our disappearing rural terrain, abandoned urban streets, and aging industrial spaces, recalling aspects of our culture that are quickly fading into the past. With an affinity for certain old-world practices and tools, Faust works just with ambient light and uses no digital or electronic technology--only classic darkroom processing--allowing all the subtle textures and tones to emerge in his work. Faust's photographs of the Midwest are shot in a panoramic format with wide, detailed images--spectacular in both their artistry and documentary impact. Chris Faust, a resident of St. Paul, is one of Minnesota's finest photographers. His award-winning images are widely collected and exhibited throughout the region and the country. --Publisher

This book, which draws on extensive new research and unpublished archival materials, is a guide to the multidisciplinary collections as well as a primer on contemporary art. It includes lavishly illustrated essays on 350 artists working in visual arts, performing arts, film, video, new media, architecture, and design; a sixty-five-page scrapbook of the institution's history; and a full-color, foldout chronicle of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden."--Jacket
Merce Cunningham : co:mm:on ti:me by Walker Art Center( Book )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Renowned as both choreographer and dancer, Merce Cunningham also revolutionized dance through his partnerships with the many artists who created costumes, lighting, films and videos, and décor and sound for his choreographic works. Cunningham, together with partner John Cage, invited those artists to help him rethink what dance could mean, both on the stage and in site-responsive contexts. His notion that movement, sound, and visual art could share a 'common time' remains one of the most radical aesthetic models of the 20th century and yielded extraordinary works by dozens of artists and composers, including Charles Atlas, John Cage, Morris Graves, Jasper Johns, Rei Kawakubo, Robert Morris, Gordon Mumma, Bruce Nauman, Ernesto Neto, Pauline Oliveros, Nam June Paik, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella, David Tudor, Stan Vanderbeek, Andy Warhol, and La Monte Young, among many others. These collaborations bring to the fore Cunningham's direct impact upon postwar artistic practice. This volume reconsiders the choreographer and his collaborators as an extraordinarily generative interdisciplinary network that preceded and predicted dramatic shifts in performance, including the development of site-specific dance, the use of technology as a choreographic tool, and the radical separation of sound and movement in dance. It features ten new essays by curators and historians, as well as interviews with contemporary choreographers--Beth Gill, Maria Hassabi, Rashaun Mitchell, and Silas Riener--who address Cunningham's continued influence. These are supplemented by rarely published archival photographs, reprints of texts by Cunningham, Cage, and other key dancers, artists and scholars, several appendices, and an extensive illustrated chronology placing Cunningham's activities and those of his collaborators in the context of the 20th century, particularly the expanded arts scene of the 1960s and 1970s. This book is an essential volume for anyone interested in contemporary art, music, and dance."--
Topless cellist : the improbable life of Charlotte Moorman by Joan Rothfuss( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Juilliard-trained cellist Charlotte Moorman sat nude behind a cello of carved ice, performed while dangling from helium-filled balloons, and deployed an array of instruments and sounds on The Mike Douglas Show that included her cello, a whistle, a cap gun, a gong, and a belch. She did a striptease while playing Bach in Nam June Paik's Sonata for Adults Only. In the 1960s, Moorman (1933-1991) became famous for her madcap (and often unclothed) performance antics; less famous but more significant is Moorman's transformative influence on contemporary performance practice--and her dedication to the idea that avant-garde art should reach the widest possible audience. In Topless Cellist, the first book to explore Moorman's life and work, Joan Rothfuss rediscovers, and recovers, the legacy of an extraordinary American artist"--Jacket

Nam June Paik by Nam June Paik( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nam June Paik (1932-2006) was one of the most innovative artists of the 20th century. His influence is still felt in music, the visual arts, film, and video. Extensively illustrated, with extracts from interviews and reminiscences from many who were close to Paik during his lifetime, this is the most thorough and illuminating exploration of Paik's legacy yet published. Born in South Korea, Paik began his career as a composer in Japan and in Germany, where he met John Cage and collaborated with Joseph Beuys. Moving to New York in 1964, he formed relationships with a number of artists associated with the Fluxus group, particularly the cellist Charlotte Moorman, who became one of his closest collaborators. He continued to experiment in performance and video art, famously using manipulated televisions as elements in sculptural works, creating robot sculptures and installations. An international range of contributors trace the course of Paik's life and career, exploring his connections with key figures in the 20th-century avant-garde, his theoretical writings, and his lasting influence."--Publisher description
