Girls' night out by Elizabeth Armstrong( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Girls' Night Out brings together the work of an international and intergenerational group of women artists whose works in photography and video reflect a new approach to issues of femininity and identity. The artists in Girls' Night Out create works that possess a quasi- documentary feel and a directness of approach as they engage with such classical art genres as self-portraiture, portraiture (especially featuring young women in the passage from girlhood to adulthood), and landscape. Some of their shared themes include provocative inquiries into youth culture, new notions of beauty, ethnographic techniques mixed with fashion devices, and an interest in journalistic aspects of the media. Formally rigorous and aesthetically resolved, this seemingly traditional imagery is infused by lyricism and psychological complexity. The historical context for Girls' Night Out is found in the photography, film, and performance art of the 1970s and 1980s, which addressed social and political themes, often through provocative satire or irony. The open, fluid approach to gender and sexuality evident in the works in Girls' Night Out is informed by the pioneering conceptual and aesthetic stance of earlier artists but also represents a significant rupture with it. This new work confidently explores female identity without the need to challenge or critique feminine archetypes. The resulting imagery is as uncertain, contradictory, and filled with possibility as the adolescents these artists often portray." (résumé éditeur)

Mel Chin : rematch by Mel Chin( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The oeuvre of Mel Chin (* 1952 in Houston) encompasses a wide variety of media including sculpture, video, drawing, painting, land art, and performance art. Eschewing a trademark style, the common thread through Chin's practice is his conceptual rigor, thoughtful historicism, and concern for social justice. His land-based works such as Revival Field from the early 1990s and Operation Paydirt (2008-ongoing), garnered significant international press for presenting the science of soil remediation as an art form. Challenging the traditional concept of a retrospective as a linear presentation of a single individual's work over time, the publication celebrates the artist's practice of constant evolution, re-examination, and collaboration. The catalogue will also include an extensive illustrated chronology of his career. Exhibition: New Orleans Museum of Art, USA (21.02-25.05.2014) and further venues

Gedi Sibony by Gedi Sibony( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Gedi Sibony's sculptural work, cardboard, wood, carpets, plastic sheets and latex paint are embedded into the exhibition rooms' architectural context. His spatial collages oscillate between objectlike appearance and installation-esque ensembles. One could describe them as low-key high art. Born in 1973 in New York, Sibony showed his work at New York's New Museum in 2007"--Jacket

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... artists possessing the ability to reflect on the complexities of the world through a self-imposed economy of means and expression. Through a rigorous and exacting use of material, space, and photography, Leslie Hewitt provides an understated reflection on our contemporary experience of history, images, and the passing of time."--Page 10
First light : Tala Madani by Tala Madani( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than a decade, Tala Madani has developed a practice centered on playful yet provocative representations of men. In paintings, drawings, and stop-motion animation, Madani creates deadpan and often hilarious satirical works that both mock virility and redistribute the dynamics of power. Disquieting and occasionally disturbing, Madani's humorous scenarios are a bravely comic reaction to the very real oppression facing women in the Middle East. This book includes essays that consider Madani's treatment of light, her film work, and a conversation between Madani and artist A.L. Steiner. Exhibition: Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, USA (15.01.-03.04.2016) / MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA (20.05.-17.07.2016)

Lari Pittman : a decorated chronology by Lari Pittman( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Decorated Chronology accompanies the first American museum exhibition of Los Angeles-based artist Lari Pittman in more than 15 years. It comprises a range of recent work and a selection of earlier paintings. Over the past three decades, Pittman has developed a body of work that is internationally celebrated for its exuberant use of color and painstakingly rendered detail to address such contentious subjects as sexuality, desire and violence. His multilayered depictions of images and signs--ranging from human figures and body parts to animals, plants, furniture, text and even credit cards--meditate on the overwhelming richness and sadness of everyday life. Embracing the critical potential of figurative painting, Pittman provides incisive commentary on the medium's ability to intertwine the personal with the political."--Amazon.com, viewed 1/22/2014
