"This illustrated book is the first full survey of the artist's career to include work in all media, including film and music. An introductory essay by Alexandra Munroe explores Ono's life, her relationship to international avant-garde movements in America and Japan, and the aspects of her art and thought that have guided her prolific production over four decades. Jon Hendrick's study of Ono and Fluxus offers new insights into her contributions to one of the most radical collectives in the history of modern art. Essays by Murray Sayle, David Ross, and Jann S. Wenner enrich our understanding of Ono's complex role as one of the most public icons of the late twentieth century"--Bk. jacket
The third mind : American artists contemplate Asia, 1860-1989 by Alexandra Munroe ( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860-1989 illuminates the dynamic and complex impact of Asian art, literature and philosophy to American creative culture spanning the early modern through contemporary periods. It documents how the visual and conceptual langauge of American art evolved through a process of appropriation and integration that runs consistently from the 1860s to the 1980s, when globalization came to eclipse earlier, more deliberate modes of cultural transmission. Opening with the late nineteenth-century Aesthetic movement that arose from Boston's Transcendentalist circles, this chronological and thematic history reveals the Asian courses that also shaped abstract art, Conceptual art, Minimalism and the neo-avant-garde as they unfolded in New York and on the West Coast." "This illustrated catalogue features essays by leading scholars in art history, history, Asian studies, and postcolonial religions and cultural studies."--BOOK JACKET
Cai Guo-Qiang : I want to believe by Guoqiang Cai ( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cai Guo-Qiang: I Want to Believe accompanies the most comprehensive exhibition to date of the innovative body of work by Chinese-born artist Cai Guo-Qiang - best known for his spectacular artworks using gunpowder. It presents a chronological and thematic survey that charts the artist's creation of a distinctive visual and conceptual language across four mediums: drawings made from gunpowder fuses and explosive powders laid on paper and ignited; explosion events, documented by videos, photographs, and preparatory drawings; large-scale installations; and social projects, wherein the artist works with local communities to create an art event or exhibitions site, documented by photographs. Featuring works from the 1980s to the present, this volume illuminates Cai's significant formal and conceptual contributions to contemporary international art practices and social activism. Generously illustrated with more than 230 images, this volume includes essays by Alexandra Munroe, David Joselit, Miwon Kwon, and Wang Hui - along with 54 documented plate entries. It is the defining scholarly publication of the artist thus far."--BOOK JACKET

Gutai : splendid playground by Ming Tiampo ( Book )

The Gutai Art Association was founded by Yoshihara Jiro in 1954 in the cosmopolite town of Ashiya, near Osaka. The group spanned two generations, totaling 59 artists and is one of the most radical movements in postwar Japanese art history. Published in conjunction with the first United States museum retrospective ever devoted to Gutai, exhibited at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, this book surveys the influential Japanese collective and artistic movement. This exhibition catalogue aims to demonstrate the range of bold and innovative creativity present in the avant-garde movement, to examine the aesthetic strategies in the cultural, social and political context of postwar Japan and the West, and to further establish Gutai in an expanded, transnational history and critical discourse of modern art.0Exhibition: Guggenheim, New York, USA (15.2.-8.5.2013). 0

"The first North American museum retrospective devoted to artist, philosopher, and poet Lee Ufan (b. 1936, Korea), Lee Ufan: Marking Infinity charts Lee's creation of a visual, conceptual, and theoretical language that has radicalized and expanded the possibilities for sculpture and painting. Deeply versed in modern philosophy, Lee is an influential writer on aesthetics and contemporary art and is recognized as the key theorist of Mono-ha, an antiformalist, materials-based art movement that developed in Tokyo in the late 1960s"--Jkt
