Kiki Smith : a gathering, 1980-2005 by Siri Engberg( Book )

15 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widely considered to be one of the most engaging and fascinating artists of our time, Kiki Smith has, over the past 25 years, developed into a major figure in the world of 21st-century art. Her subject matter is as wide-ranging as the materials her work has encompassed. In the 1980s, with her earliest figural sculptures in plaster, glass, and wax, Smith developed an elaborate vocabulary around the forms and functions of the body and its metaphorical as well as physical relationship to society. By the early 1990s she began to engage with themes of a more religious and mythological nature. Her re-imaginings of biblical women as inhabitants of physical bodies--rather than as abstract bearers of doctrine--led her to make a series of sculptural works related to the figure of the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene, Lilith, and others. The artist has more recently considered fairy tales and folk narratives as well as nurturing a growing menagerie of work concerned with animals and the natural world. Smith has now earned a considerable reputation as a virtuoso printmaker and draftsperson, and as a re-inventor of the startling sculptural possibitilies present in materials ranging from paper and resin to bronze and porcelain. Organized by the Walker Art Center with the full collaboration of the artist, the exhibition Kiki Smith represents the artist¹s first full-scale touring museum retrospective in the United States. This accompanying exhibition catalogue is a comprensive volume that includes critical essays, an interview, a generous four-color plate section, a complete exhibition history and bibliography, and the first-ever comprehensive illustrated chronology of Smith¹s life and work
Robert Motherwell: the complete prints 1940-1991 : catalogue raisonne by Siri Engberg( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Motherwell: The Complete Prints 1940-1991 presents for the first time a definitive catalogue raisonne of this aspect of the artist's work, documenting more than 500 editions with all new research, photography, and commentary, and incorporating previously uncatalogued material. In addition, the book includes an essay on Motherwell's printmaking history, an illustrated chronology, a comprehensive bibliography and exhibition history, and a concordance with past catalogues. Supplanting earlier publications as the standard reference on Motherwell's editioned work, this book is an invaluable resource for scholars, collectors, and general enthusiasts of an artist who made an indelible impression on the history of twentieth-century printmaking."--Jacket

From here to there : Alec Soth's America, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis by Alec Soth( Book )

20 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Walker presents the first U.S. survey of the work of Alec Soth, one of the most compelling voices in contemporary photography, whose offbeat images of everyday America form powerful narrative vignettes. Featuring more than 100 photographs made between 1994 and the present, the exhibition includes examples from Soth's well-known series Sleeping by the Mississippi and Niagara, a selection of rarely seen early black-and-white work, and a broad range of portraits. Also on view is the Minneapolis-based artist's newest series, Broken Manual, exploring places of escape in and individuals who seek to flee civilization for a life "off the grid."
Lifelike by Siri Engberg( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is it real? Lifelike invites a close examination of art since the late 1960s based on commonplace objects and situations that are startlingly realistic, often playful and sometimes surreal--works that investigate the quieter side of the quotidian. While artists such as Vija Celmins, Rudolf Stingel and Paul Sietsema employ illusionistic painting and drawing, others' use of materials is surprising--Thomas Demand's video of what appears to be a rainstorm is made from animated candy wrappers; Susan Collis' sculpture of construction debris is fashioned from exotic hardwoods, mother of pearl and silver. What binds these artists together is their rejection of the easy route technology might offer in favor of labor-intensive fabrication. Featuring painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, video and installations by more than 40 artists, Lifelike is the first publication to address the recent history of artists using these strategies across media
