Hilma af Klint : painting the unseen by Hilma af Klint( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hilma af Klint is now regarded as a pioneer of abstract art. While her paintings were not seen publicly until 1987, her work from the early 20th century pre-dates the first purely abstract paintings by Kandinsky, Mondrian or Malevich. Af Klint sought to express her feelings transmitted to her from nature and the unseen spiritual world. This catalogue focuses primarily on her body of work "The Paintings for the Temple", 1906-15, and numerous paintings from the key series never published before. Exhibition: Serpentine Galleries, London, UK (03.03-15.05.2016)
Jeff Koons by Jeff Koons( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jeff Koons' Popeye series, begun in 2002, incorporates some of the artist's signature themes and motifs: the surrealistic combination of everyday objects, cartoon imagery, outsized scale, art-historical references and children's toys. The sculptures reproduced here continue Koons' fondness for casting inflatable toys in aluminum-carefully painted to resemble supple plastic-which he juxtaposes here with unaltered everyday objects, such as chairs or garbage cans. The Popeye paintings are complex and layered compositions that combine disparate images both found and created by Koons (including images of the sculptures in the series). The instantly recognizable figures of Popeye and Olive Oyl are central, and recur across several key works within the book. Frederic Tuten, Arthur C. Danto and Dorothea von Hantelmann provide commentary on this fun body of work, which Koons discusses in a conversation with Julia Peyton-Jones and Hans Ulrich Obrist

Brice Marden : Serpentine Gallery, London : 17 November, 2000-7 January, 2001 by Brice Marden( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brice Marden (born 1938) first incorporated gesture in his paintings and drawings in the mid-1980s. Inspired by Chinese calligraphy, the wandering lines were a departure from the planes of color that had characterized his prior work. In recent years the monochrome has returned, but in a different form, subtly altered by the artist's ongoing engagement with gesture. This catalogue presents Marden's first new body of work since 2012. It includes 12 paintings- calligraphic and monochrome, with multiple panels and single panels-and 43 drawings, all illustrated in full color. Photographs of his studios in Tivoli and Nevis offer a view of his tools and techniques, while a conversation with painter Matt Connors sheds light on Marden's continuing evolution and influence."
Rebecca Warren by Rebecca Warren( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With her classically formal clay and bronze sculptures, London-based Rebecca Warren positions herself within the predominantly male figurative tradition, which includes Degas and Rodin, while maintaining the contemporary stance of questioning her predecessors' authority. Here she presents new works alongside well-known pieces from throughout her career."--Jacket
Agnes Martin : paintings and drawings, 1977-1991 by Agnes Martin( Book )

Das Institut by Das Institut( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Serpentine presented the first major exhibition of work by Kerstin Brätsch and Adele Röder in a UK public institution. Brätsch and Röder are based in New York and London. While each has her own practice, the artists have worked collaboratively as DAS INSTITUT since 2007. The exhibition at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery presented works resulting from their collaboration as well as pieces from their individual practices. In her work, Brätsch uses painting to question the ways in which the body can be expressed - psychologically, physically and socially - while Röder searches for basic symbolic forms to create a non-verbal language utilising clothing, posture and light. As DAS INSTITUT the artists attempt to communicate the inexpressible - the intuitive, irrational element of human experience and relationships. DAS INSTITUT focuses on the kinds of communication that occur between individuals, and this has led them to collaborate with other artists. Featured within the show were a number of additional contributions: a film by historian and filmmaker Alexander Kluge, a composition in light and sound by Sergei Tcherepnin, a series of traditional Hawaiian Hula dances organized by Ei Arakawa, and a fragmented portrait of Brätsch and Röder by Allison Katz. The exhibition DAS INSTITUT focused on the transformative properties and effects of light on bodies and spaces. The skylights of the gallery were covered with coloured gels and the key sources of light were the artworks themselves, as projected images, as stained glass and as neon shapes. Traces of Brätsch and Röder's own physical presence were also made visible: silhouettes and photographs of their bodies were incorporated into a number of works, such as the Am Sonntag Series (2014), while their faces and figures emerged through the surfaces of pieces, such as Dark Codex (Galerieanzeige)

Alex Katz : quick light by Alex Katz( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The exhibition catalogue brings together texts from artists, thinkers and poets, which offer personal responses to Katz's work. It opens with a previously unpublished conversation between Alex Katz and Hans Ulrich Obrist and a new poem written by John Godfrey. In her essay, Ingrid D. Rowland expands on Katz's unique approach to light and a conversation between artists Marlene Dumas and Jan Andriesse gives an insight into their engagement with Katz's work over time. Critic and writer Jan Verwoert's text explores Katz's understanding of depth and perception and the artist Merlin James focuses on a single painting. The publication also features archival reviews, which highlight the changing opinions of Katz's work throughout time and the influence of the cultural landscape on his practice.

Duane Hanson : [editors Rebecca Lewin and Melissa Larner with Melissa Blanchflower] by Duane Hanson( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Serpentine presents the work of late American sculptor Duane Hanson in his first survey show in London since 1997. Throughout his forty-year career, Hanson created lifelike sculptures portraying working-class Americans and overlooked members of society. Reminiscent of the Pop Art movement of the time, his sculptures transform the banalities and trivialities of everyday life into iconographic material. The exhibition at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery presents key works from the artist’s oeuvre.00Exhibition: Serpentine Sackler Gallery, London, UK (02.06-13.09.2015)
Indian highway by Kathleen Madden( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The culmination of extensive research across India, this group exhibition was a snapshot of a vibrant generation of artists working across a range of media. Indian Highway featured artists who had already made a significant impact on the international art world alongside emerging practitioners. The exhibition also included a special project curated by Raqs Media Collective. Some of the artworks in the exhibition were selected for their connection to the theme of Indian Highway, reflecting the importance of the road in migration and movement and as the link between rural and urban communities. Other works made reference to technology and the ‘information superhighway’, which has been central to India’s economic boom. A common thread throughout was the way in which these artists demonstrate an active political and social engagement, examining complex issues in contemporary India that include environmentalism, religious sectarianism, globalisation, gender, sexuality and class. To frame and contextualise the work by a younger generation of artists, new paintings were created specially for the Serpentine Gallery by India’s most acclaimed living artist, M. F. Husain. Depicting the history of India, the series was presented on a structure around the exterior of the building, purpose-designed by architects Nikolaus Hirsch and Michel Müller
Medardo Rosso : sight unseen and his encounters with London by Medardo Rosso( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rosso was a revolutionary sculptor who subverted traditional modeling and casting methods to animate the surfaces of his sculptures. He went against prevailing monumental and heroic tendencies by depicting vulnerable subjects such the poor, children and the elderly. Some of his works, like Enfant au sein (late 1889-90), on view at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, border on abstraction. He adopted a performative approach to sculpture by casting his bronzes in public in a theatrical mise-en-scène, and he invented unique exhibition strategies by installing his work alongside those of other artists
