Unfinished : thoughts left visible by Kelly Baum( Book )

12 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This groundbreaking book explores the evolving concept of unfinishedness as essential to understanding art movements from the Renaissance to the present day. Unfinished presents more than 200 works, created in a variety of media, by artists ranging from Leonardo, Titian, Rembrandt, Turner, and Cézanne to Picasso, Warhol, Twombly, Freud, Richter, and Nauman. What unites these works, across centuries and media, is that each one displays some aspect of being unfinished. Essays and case studies by major contemporary scholars address this key concept from the perspective of both the creator and the viewer, probing the impact that this long artistic trajectory-which can be traced back to the first century-has had on modern and contemporary art. The book investigates the degrees to which instances of incompleteness were accidental or intentional, experimental or conceptual. Also included are illuminating interviews with contemporary artists, including Tuymans, Celmins, and Marden, and parallel considerations of the unfinished in literature and film. The result is a multidisciplinary approach and thought-provoking analysis that provide valuable insight into the making, meaning, and critical reception of the unfinished in art"--Cover
Nobody's property : art, land, space, 2000-2010 by Kelly Baum( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This generously illustrated volume surveys a new chapter in the history of environmental art, one in which space, geopolitics, human relations, urbanism and utopian dreamwork play as important a role as, if not more than, raw earth
More than one : photographs in sequence by Joel Smith( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in More than One examine sequentiality and serialism in the practice of photography from the medium's earliest years to the present. Contributors explore nuances of syntax and sense raised by works including photographic albums, books, thematic portfolios, journalistic photo features, and documentations of performance art." "Fully illustrated essays discuss, among other topics, the little-known volume Beyond This Point (1929), a collaborative experiment by American photographer Francis Bruguiere and London radio-drama writer Lance Sieveking; the evolving relationships among "straight" photographic aesthetics, sequence, and sexual self-definition in the early work of Minor White; and an important performance work by Ana Mendieta. The title essay surveys the social conditions and expressive motives that have given rise to serial and sequential forms throughout the history of photography."--Jacket
Delirious : art at the limits of reason, 1950-1980 by Kelly Baum( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addressing the maniacal, eccentric, and disorienting in artworks made between 1950 and 1980, Delirious situates a fascination with the absurd and irrational within the context of the violence and brutality witnessed during World War II as well as the rapid expansion of industrial capitalism in the 1950s. Skepticism of science and technology--along with fear of its capability to promote mass destruction--developed into a distrust of rationalism, which in the arts had the paradoxical result of extracting irrational effects from rational means
Odyssey : Jack Whitten : sculpture 1963-2017 by Jack Whitten( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A stunning, significant, and previously unseen body of work by a contemporary master. At the same time that Jack Whitten pursued his decades-long and highly acclaimed rethinking of abstract painting, he was conducting a parallel experiment in sculpture. Whitten began carving wood in the mid-1960s, as a way to understand the formal qualities of African sculpture, both as fuel for his paintings and to interiorize its ancestral, political, and metaphysical lessons. His sculptural work expanded in 1969, whne he began spending the summers in Crete, where he connected wtih archaic Minoan and Cycladic objects as well as with a gorgeous natural world of sea, bone, wood, and stone. Odyssey accompanies a groundbreaking exhibition that features sculptures made by Whitten over the past fifty years. They are accompanied by Whitten's Black Monolith series, paintings that directly reveal the lessons of his sculptural practice, and by a selection of the African and Greek work that inspired the artist. The book includes major essays by Kwame Anthony Appiah, Kelly Baum, Kellie Jones, Richard Shiff, Katy Siegel, and Whitten himself, in addition to an extensive interview with Whitten conducted by Courtney J. Martin. Odyssey not only deepens our understanding of one of the most important artists of our time, it also redefines the terms of global postwar art, affirming the centrality of a cosmopolitan black identity and grounding it in a more capacious vision of history

New Jersey as non-site by Kelly Baum( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1950 and 1975, some of the postwar era's most innovative artists flocked to a very unexpected place: New Jersey. Appreciating what others tended to ignore or mock, they gravitated to the state's most desolate peripheries: its industrial wastescapes, crumbling cities, crowded highways, and banal suburbs. There they produced some of the most important work of their careers. The breakthroughs in land, conceptual, performance, and site-specific art that New Jersey helped catalyze are the subject of New Jersey as Non-Site, whose title evokes the mixed-media sculptures that Robert Smithson began to create in 1968 while driving the state's highways with Nancy Holt. This catalogue examines more than 100 works by sixteen artists, including Amiri Baraka, George Brecht, Dan Graham, Allan Kaprow, Gordon Matta-Clark, and George Segal. Organized around three themes--ruin, cooperation, and displacement--Kelly Baum's essay considers their work in relationship to seismic shifts in the world of art and equally dramatic changes to New Jersey's economy, infrastructure, landscape, demography, and social stability."--
Rothko to Richter : mark-making in abstract painting from the collection of Preston H. Haskell by Kelly Baum( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring twenty-seven paintings created between 1950 and 1990 by some of the most important artists of the mid-to late twentieth century, including Karel Appel, Willem de Kooning, Helen Frankenthaler, Jack Goldstein, Hans Hofmann, Morris Louis, Gerhard Richter, Mark Rothko, and Frank Stella, this book provides a window on to a moment of remarkable creative ferment, when the nature of abstract painting was being hotly contested. For the artists featured here, the debate around abstraction occurred largely at the level of technique, and to this end, they developed radically new ways to make marks that alternately emphasized or suppressed traces of the artist's touch. Beautiful reproductions are accompanied by insightful essays that examine how the works communicate the changing priorities of abstract art after World War II.

Alicja Kwade : ParaPivot by Kelly Baum( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Berlin-based artist Alicja Kwade's (born 1979, Poland) work is elegant, rigorous, and highly experiential. Using a wide range of media, Kwade creates sculptures and installations that reflect on time, perception, and scientific inquiry. With equal parts poetry and critical acumen, she calls into question the systems designed to banish doubt from the world and make sense of an otherwise unfathomable universe. Ultimately, Kwade seeks to heighten both the mystery and the absurdity of the human condition in order to enhance our powers of self-reflection. For The Met, Kwade has created two sculptures using steel and stone to evoke a miniature solar system, a piece of space that will settle temporarily on the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. This will be Kwade's first solo exhibition at a museum in the United States." -- Metropolitan Museum of Art website
