Marcel Duchamp by Marcel Duchamp( Book )

25 editions published in 2002 in 3 languages and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A one-time Fauvist, Cubist, Dadaist, and Surrealist, but an eternal chess player, Marcel Duchamp remains the avant-garde figure beyond all avant-garde figures of the past century. Provocative and brilliant, he radically challenged and changed accepted notions of art and its manufacture, and of the relationship between art and life. Marcel Duchamp, published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Jean Tinguely Museum in Basel under the curatorship of Harald Szeeman, endeavors to trace the different periods of Duchamp's oeuvre by means of a selection of his work focused mainly on those aspects that influenced Tinguely's own oeuvre. Additionally, the publication contains statements by Duchamp and essays by renowned Duchamp scholars on such topics as the emergence and development of the ready-made concept and its impact on the art of the 1960s
Miracle in the scrap heap : the sculpture of Richard Stankiewicz by Richard Stankiewicz( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers the first comprehensive survey of the art of Richard Stankiewicz (1922-83) and reassesses its place in the art of his time. Stankiewicz's welded sculpture of rusted iron and cast-off steel played an important role in the redefinition of art in New York during the 1950s. Yet, as is the case of several artists who figured significantly in the heady decade when the New York School came to international prominence, the full range of Stankiewicz's art has not been fully appreciated. This publication - accompanying an internationally touring exhibition organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts - provides the first overview of his pioneering "junk sculpture" of the 1950s within the context of the artist's thirty-year career. Although Stankiewicz has been included in important group exhibitions of Assemblage, Neo-Dada, and Abstract Expressionist sculpture, his art has eluded conclusive critical identification." "Following an introduction by Addison Gallery Director Adam D. Weinberg, is an extended critical look at Stankiewicz, his life, and his achievement by Emmie Donadio, who wrote her 1996 doctoral dissertation on the artist. The artist is placed within the twentieth-century European avant-garde tradition in an essay by Jon Wood. Martin Friedman's "Putting It All Together" positions Stankiewicz's work in relation to that of his contemporaries in 1950s New York. The book also includes a narrative chronology, a bibliography, and generous illustrations of key sculptures by the artist."--Jacket

Tatlin : new art for a new world by Museum Jean Tinguely Basel( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Painter, architect, engineer, set designer, father to the Russian Constructivist movement, inventor of the 'counter-relief' and author of one of modernism's greatest icons, the 'Monument to the Third International, ' Vladimir Tatlin blazed an incredible trail of innovation through the glory years of the Soviet avant-garde. Nevertheless, 'Not the old, not the new, but the necessary' was his motto; having spent his early years as an icon painter, Tatlin eschewed the modernist disavowal of heritage in favor of a research-based attitude to materials and genres. His 'counter-relief' sculptures, made of wood, cardboard, metal and wire, were foundational works for Rodchenko and the Constructivists, and their influence can be seen today in the works of creators as various as Zaha Hadid and Richard Tuttle. But it is his 'Monument to the Third International, ' often called simply 'Tatlin's Tower, ' that has grasped the imaginations of artists, architects and writers down the generations ... Published for a landmark exhibition at the Museum Tinguely in Basel, it examines every facet of his output, from his early Cubist-influenced paintings to the counter-reliefs, the 'Tower, ' prints, set and costume designs and aeronautic researches, and constitutes an essential portrait of the ambitions of Soviet modernism."--Publisher's description

Museum Tinguely Basel : the collection by Museum Jean Tinguely Basel( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Museum Tinguely, opened in Basel in 1996, is dedicated to the work of the artist Jean Tinguely (1925 -1991). The collection can for the most part be traced back to a donation by Tinguely's widow, Niki de Saint Phalle, and contains sculptures, drawings, sketches and archived documents that record the accomplishments of the important avant-garde artist up until his later work. As a Swiss artist in Paris, Tinguely was a member of the Nouveaux Réalistes along with Yves Klein, Christo and Daniel Spoerri. His kinetic sculptures helped to shape the artistic awakening of his time, and with happenings such as Homage to New York, and the Studies for an End of the World he can be said to have been partially responsible for a radical expansion of the definition of art in the early 1960s. The catalog depicts all the sculptures in the collection as well as a generous selection of drawings and sketches. It encompasses a thorough biography, a text on the happenings and events in which Tinguely was involved, recently compiled directories as well as an essay on the restoration of the machine sculptures in the museum
