Inverted odysseys : Claude Cahun, Maya Deren, and Cindy Sherman by Lynn Gumpert( )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Claude Cahun, Maya Deren, and Cindy Sherman were born in different countries, in different generations - Cahun in France in 1894, Deren in Russia in 1917, and Sherman in the United States in 1954. Yet they share a deeply theatrical obsession that shatters any notion of a unified self. All three try out identities from different social classes and geographic environments, extend their temporal range into the past and future, and transform themselves into heroes and villains, mythological creatures, and sex goddesses. The premise of Inverted Odysseys is that this expanded concept of the self - this playful urge to "try on" other roles - is more than a feminist or psychological issue
Wangechi Mutu : a fantastic journey by Wangechi Mutu( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This richly illustrated full-color catalog accompanies the first major solo museum exhibition and most comprehensive survey of the artist Wangechi Mutu's work, on view at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University from March 21, 2013, through July 21, 2013, before traveling to the Brooklyn Museum. Born in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1972, and now based in Brooklyn, Mutu renders the complex global sensibility of the early twenty-first century through a distinctly hybrid aesthetic. She combines found materials and magazine cutouts with sculpture and painted imagery, sampling from sources and phenomena as diverse as African traditions, international politics, the fashion industry, and science fiction. In her work, Mutu marries poetic symbolism with sociopolitical critique to explore issues of gender, race, war, colonialism, and, particularly, the exoticization of the black female body. The many images included in Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey highlight the most important and iconic works that Mutu has created since the mid-1990s, as well as portray new collages, drawings, videos, and site-specific installations. The catalog also offers an intimate look into her sketchbooks and includes an interview with the artist conducted by the exhibition's curator, Trevor Schoonmaker. Essays by Schoonmaker, the art historian Kristine Stiles, and the critic, musician, and producer Greg Tate are paired with an illustrated chronology of Mutu's work."--Publisher's website

Artificial light : new light-based sculpture and installation art : Jennifer Allora [and others] by John B Ravenal( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pour ces artistes, la lumière -naturelle et artificielle- est le moyen de poser les questions de la perception, la mémoire, l'énergie et le pouvoir. Influencés par les pionniers de la sculpture de lumière des années 60 et 70, comme Dan Flavin, James Turrell et Bruce Nauman, ces artistes d'une nouvelle génération ont étendu l'utilisation de la lumière comme forme sculpturale pour adresser un large éventail de préoccupations. Le titre de l'exposition se réfère au fait que la lumière électrique sert de matière principale, mais il se réfère aussi aux thèmes liés au concept d'artifice, comme la technologie, la nature, la beauté et le mystère
Angel without you by Tracey Emin( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most highly publicized of the infamous Young British Artists, Emin has stirred as much controversy as she has acclaim, being both highly personal and extremely original in her art. Emin's work is engaging, titillating, disturbing, and startlingly confessional. One of her most famous pieces is Everyone I Ever Slept With 1963-1995, a tent appliqued with names. Another notorious work, My Bed--the scene where she spent four days contemplating suicide--was exhibited at Tate Britain when the artist was short-listed for the Turner prize in 1999. Though denounced by conservative critics at the outset, Emin's work has attracted serious critical attention for more than a decade. In the words of Art in America, "What brought Emin to prominence was shock value, but what keeps her work powerful as she continues is the strength and nuance of its form and content." Compiled in close collaboration with the artist herself--and unprecedented in its scope--this is the definitive book on Emin, featuring drawings, paintings, sculptures, appliques and embroideries, neon and video stills as well as her own writing
