Christopher Wilmarth : light and gravity by Steven Henry Madoff( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christopher Wilmarth delighted the world with light-filled sculptures of glass and steel that were poetic in their moods and rich in their modernist heritage. But in 1987, at the peak of his career, a long struggle with depression ended tragically for Wilmarth. The internationally acclaimed artist committed suicide at age forty-four, and his work largely fell from the public view." "Now, Wilmarth's legacy is recaptured in this illustrated book by art critic, historian, and poet Steven Henry Madoff. The first in-depth look at Wilmarth's extraordinary life as an artist, the book explores both the light and the darkness that underlie his work. Madoff offers a critical overview of the artist's career, examining the sculptor's response not only to historical masters such as Cezanne, Brancusi, Matisse, and Giacometti, but also to the art world of his times - particularly the dominant influence of Minimalism. Using the newly created Wilmarth archive at Harvard University's Fogg Art Museum, Madoff anchors this moving interpretation with the sculptor's own writings unearthed from journals, student notebooks, artist sketchbooks, and letters." "Madoff draws as well from interviews, articles, and poems that Wilmarth published in his lifetime, along with the body of criticism covering Wilmarth's development over the years."--Jacket
Shirin Neshat : facing history by Melissa Chiu( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In her mesmerizing films and photographs, Shirin Neshat (Iranian-American, b. Qazvin, 1957) examines the nuances of power and identity in the Islamic world--particularly in her native country of Iran, where she lived until 1975. This book, the companion volume to the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum exhibition of the same name, presents an array of Neshat's most compelling works, illuminating the points at which cultural and political events have inflected her artistic practice. Included are the "Women of Allah" photographs that catapulted the artist to international acclaim in the 1990s; lyrical video installations, which immerse the viewer in imagery and sound; and the photographic series "The Book of Kings"--Including its latest chapter, Our House Is on Fire, created in the aftermath of the recent Egyptian revolutions. Commenting on freedom and loss, Neshat's deeply humanistic art is at once personal, political, and allegorical, and this book is an essential testament to its enduring power"--

James Drake by James Drake( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Drake has explored political, social, and universal themes through the media of sculpture, video, installation, photography, and drawing. James Drake, the first monograph devoted to the artist, surveys thirty-five years of Drake's work up to 2007." "Many of the works reproduced in James Drake reflect the artist's preoccupation with borders. Some have to do with the political border between the United States and Mexico and the inherent social and psychological tensions of people living in its extreme and unique environment. Other works explore the internal boundaries that people experience as a result of attitudes, prejudices, power, control, and arrogance. Jimmy Santiago Baca's narrative poem Huitzilopochtli, a personal response to Drake's work, provides a verbal counterpart to the artist's theme of border-crossing." "Another prominent subject in Drake's work is the relationship of people and animals - in particular, the animality that always lurks in human behavior. In his essay "Between Animality and Man," critic Steven Henry Madoff traces this subject through Drake's work and shows how Drake uses it to contrast the forces of intellect and instinct, light and darkness." "Interspersed among the color plates are quotations from writers as varied as Cormac McCarthy and Dante. Also accompanying the plates and essays is an introduction by Bruce W. Ferguson, a nationally known art curator, educator, and critic, that places Drake's work in an art historical context. Lists of James Drake's works, exhibitions, public collections, and awards, as well as a bibliography of works about Drake, complete this first retrospective of the oeuvre of this major, socially concerned artist, who always "tries to make work as exciting, powerful, and thought-provoking as possible.""--Jacket

Rebecca Horn : moon mirror : site-specific installations, 1982-2005 by Doris von Drathen( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moon Mirror focuses on an aspect of Rebecca Horn's extraordinarily diverse oeuvre that plays an important role in the formal constitution of her large sculptures and installations - the relationship between the work of art and its architectural setting." "This book presents a selection ranging from works of the 1980s to sculptures and installations realized in 2005. In the early Measure Box (1970) and Rooms meet in mirrors (1974/75) the human body is the measure of spatial perception. In the installation entitled Concert in Reverse (1987), the artist works in a building with a dubious political background - the "Zwinger," where countless people were tortured during the Nazi regime - exploring its history and creating a place of remembrance. In Moon Mirror (2003), a work installed in Pollenca, the artist creates a column of air between a fountain constructed with mirrors and an eddy of light beneath the dome of the convent church. At the point at which the Orient and the Occident meet, the moon is captured as a "vehicle of human vision and expression." The viewer descends into the depths of the fountain and transcends his own horizon in order to survey the heavens anew."--Jacket
