The avant-garde won't give up : Cobra and its legacy( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The European artistic collective known as Cobra was born in the wake of World War II's devastating events, its name an acronym for the native cities of its founders: Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam. The influential group of painters and sculptors had a tremendous impact on the development of European abstract expressionism, and contemporary art in general. Cobra was arguably the last avant-garde movement of the 20th century. Moving chronologically, this book explores the years leading up to Cobra's formation, charts its complex expansion over a decade, and illuminates how the movement helped shape the trajectory of contemporary art today. Thoughtfully integrated among the numerous images, many presented as full-page color illustrations, are essays that probe the ideological hallmarks that shaped the group as a whole: its rejection of rational constraints; a focus on play and youthfulness; and its embrace of immediacy, particularly in the form of action paintings. In addition, comprehensive biographies of the artists illuminate crucial aspects of each individual's journey, helping to expand readers' understanding of Europe's socio-political and theoretical climate

Mark Flood : gratest hits : Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, April 30-August 7, 2016 by Mark Flood( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Flood: Gratest Hits' is the first survey of the work of Houston-based artist Mark Flood (born 1957) dating from the 1970s to 2016. Described by The New York Times as a 'painter and punk propagandist,' Flood has, despite remaining barely visible at the museum level, maintained an active and influential career for decades in painting and, increasingly, exhibition practice, producing work characterized by deep wisdom and trenchant humor. With Gratest Hits, Flood--an artist so absolute in his judgments that one 2012 painting featured the words Whore Museums, Gutless Collectors, Blind Dealers, So-Called Artists? emblazoned on it--finally gets the monographic museum treatment in his hometown, and a career-spanning catalogue to boot. This fully illustrated, full-color volume features texts by Carlo McCormick, Alison Gingeras, El Topito, Scott Indrisek and Bill Arning, the exhibition&#x;s curator and director of the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston

Genieve Figgis by Genieve Figgis( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume features the full complement of the artist's work, including select drawings as well as an interview of the artist by Dodie Kazanjian, and an essay by Alison Gingeras exploring Figgis's storytelling and how this relates to the artist's Irish roots

Niki de Saint Phalle : here everything is possible by Niki de Saint-Phalle( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Innovative and pioneering, French-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) created an extensive and complex body of work over her five decade-long career. Her work received international recognition as early as 1961 when it was included in the important exhibition 'The Art and Assemblage' at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Since then Saint Phalle has been the subject of numerous exhibitions worldwide. Her bright and joyful Nana sculptures have become known as her signature artwork. The artist and her oeuvre however, can not be solely understood through this one body of work. This catalogue, accompanying the artist's first comprehensive retrospective in Belgium at Beaux-Arts Mons (BAM), explores Saint Phalle's multi-faceted practice, examining how the artist worked across a wide-range of media-painting, assemblage, sculpture, performance, public sculpture and architectural projects, film and theatre. Providing an overview of Saint Phalle's entire career, it seeks to demonstrate how the artist used her boundless imagination and unique vision of the world to transcend the space typically reserved for women to become one of the twentieth century's most important artists. Exhibition: BAM, Mons, Belgium (15.09.2018 - 13.01.2019)
