Above the pavement-- the farm! : architecture & agriculture at PF1 by Rosten Woo( )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Above the pavement - the farm! reveals the groundbreaking efforts of architecture firm WORKac and their team of more than 150 collaborators - farmers, politicians, horticulturalists, technicians, soil scientists, engineers, architecture students, and artists - to create a working urban farm, hoisted 30 feet high, using industrial cardboard tubes filled with more than 50 varieties of locally grown fruits and vegetables."--Back cover
Take your time : Olafur Eliasson by Ólafur Elíasson( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the art of Olafur Eliasson, the sun can rise inside a museum and rainbows can appear indoors. His immersive installations explore the intersection of nature and artifice, transforming ordinary spaces into sites of wonder and spectacle. From kaleidoscopes to waterfalls to mirrored passageways, the projects invite the viewer's active participation while passing provocative questions about the workings of human perception. Published in conjunction with a major survey organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, this catalogue presents a series of original essays investigating the complex origins and implications of Eliasson's practice. More than two hundred color reproductions offer a rich overview of his most significant artworks from 1990 to the present."--Jacket
Deep storage : collecting, storing, and archiving in art( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication documents the importance of collecting and packaging, storing, and archiving as a contemporary artistic strategy. It lends surprising insight into the process of creating art, which itself is a result of collecting experiences and materials, by using the work of forty internationally celebrated artists as examples." "In Deep Storage, these archives of materials become works of art themselves. The documentation and exhibition of these extreme departures from conventional forms of collection and recollection is a stunning project in the avant-garde tradition." "In accordance with its subject matter, this book is organized like a storage file of information, in which the broad spectrum of artistic contributions and essays and texts by twenty-five authors is presented alphabetically."
Roth time : a Dieter Roth retrospective by Dirk Dobke( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sculptor, poet, diarist, graphic designer, pioneer artist's book maker, performer, publisher, musician, and, most of all, provocateur, Dieter Roth has long been beloved as an artist's artist. Known for his mistrust of all art institutions and commercial galleries--he once referred to museums as funeral homes--he was also known for his generosity to friends, his collaborative spirit, and for including his family in his art making. Much to the frustration of any gallery that tried to exhibit his work (supposedly none more than once), Roth thumbed his nose at those who valued high purpose and permanence in art. Constantly trying to undo his art education, he would set up systems that discouraged the conventional and the consistent: he drew with both hands at once, preserved the discarded, and reveled in the transitory. Grease stains, mold formations, insect borings, and rotting foodstuffs were just some of the materials used, both out of a fascination with their painterly, textural aspects and for their innate ability to make time visible and play to chance. "More is better," he once said, and more there always was. Roth never stopped working, and he believed that everything could be art, from his sketch pad to the table he sat at, the telephone he talked on, or his friend's kitchen (the kitchen was later sold to a museum). Roth Time: A Dieter Roth Retrospective is published to mark the first major survey exhibition of the artist's work since his death in 1998. Five decades of drawings, graphics, books, paintings, objects, installations, films and video works are represented. The publication offers a window into Roth's creative world, reflecting him and his era. The exhibition is organized by the Schaulager with The Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Museum Ludwig,
NeoHooDoo : art for a forgotten faith( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"NeoHooDoo, a phrase coined by the poet Ishmael Reed in the late 1960s, celebrates the practice of rituals, folklore, and spirituality in the Americas beyond the scope of Christianity and organized religion. This book examines the work of thirty-three artists, including Jimmie Durham, David Hammons, Jose Bedia, Rebecca Belmore, and James Lee Byars, who began using ritualistic practices during the 1970s and 1980s as a way of reinterpreting aspects of their cultural heritage. Younger artists such as Tania Bruguera and Michael Joo are shown to have drawn upon the iconography of ritual. The original essays, which discuss artistic use of ritual as a form of celebration, catharsis, or political critique, stand alongside contributions from NeoHooDoo's key sources of inspiration: Robert Farris Thompson, Ishmael Reed, and Quincy Troupe."--Jacket
Bruce Nauman : disappearing acts by Bruce Nauman( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in German and English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bruce Nauman is widely acknowledged as a central figure in contemporary art, and the stringent questioning of values --both aesthetic and moral-- that has long sustained his project remains urgent today. For more than fifty years, Nauman has explored how mutable experiences of time, space, sound, movement, and language provide an insecure foundation for our understanding of our place in the world. This richly illustrated catalogue, which includes rare and previously unpublished images, offers a comprehensive view of the artist's work in all media --including drawings; early fiberglass sculptures; sound environments; architecturally scaled, participatory constructions; rhythmically blinking neons; and a recent 3-D video that harks back to one of Nauman's earliest performances. A wide range of authors --artists, curators, and historians of art, architecture, and film-- focus on topics that have been largely neglected, such as the architectural structures that posit real or imaginary spaces as models for ethical inquiry and mechanisms of control. Curator Kathy Halbreich's introductory essay explores Nauman's many acts of disappearance, withdrawal, and deflection as revelatory of his central formal and intellectual concerns. Eighteen further contributions tease out the various themes that run through this protean and elusive artist's work

Into me/out of me by Klaus Biesenbach( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and German and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Into Me/Out of Me is about the imagined, descriptive and performative acts of passing into, through and out of the human body. This book focuses on the primordial relationship between the internal and the external metabolism (eating, drinking, excreting), reproduction (intercourse, birth), and violence (shooting, impaling, perforation). Into Me/Out of Me brings together explorations and visualizations of these three processes, which deal with the wet and the dry, the inner and the outer surfaces of the body, and the material world. Spanning over 40 years and featuring an international group of more than 130 artists, Into Me/Out of Me employs a wide range of media to illuminate the literal and metaphorical ways that humans interact with each other and material matter. These daily exchanges are presented within the frameworks of natural science, historical and mythological confrontations, ritualistic practices, and self-exploration."--Jacket
John Wesley : paintings 1961-2000 by Alanna Heiss( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center presents the first U.S. retrospective of works by the painter John Wesley (b. Los Angeles, 1928) spanning the years 1961 to 2000. Curated by P.S.1 Director Alanna Heiss, this exhibition follows the career of an artist who, to his credit, has successfully evaded definition for nearly four decades. Wesley is known for his consistency of palette (baby blues, cotton-candy pinks), his use of painted "frames" within his pictures, his early emblem paintings, his cartoon Bumstead paintings, and ultimately for his representations of an inner erotic voyage. The paintings and works on paper included in this exhibition will provide a context for understanding the stylistic changes and multi-layered process behind Wesley's work. Initially considered in alignment with Pop artists of the early sixties, Wesley consistently produced works of such a subtle and subversive nature as to put him in a category of his own. He used the early tools of advertising production to reveal the unproductive practice of daydreaming. Influences on his work range from Surrealism to Art Nouveau, from ancient Greek pottery to Matisse. Wesley's colorful and figurative style also reflects the "flat" world of comics and posters. His secret life is ours; the works uncover the private world of a dreamer, where the dreamer is the protagonist, the artist, and the viewer. To accompany the exhibition, P.S.1 has produced this book which includes an interview with Alanna Heiss, new essays by Brian O'Doherty and Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, a chronology by Hannah Green and an anthology of significant texts by authors Donald Judd, Hannah Green, Sanford Schwartz, Thomas McGonigle, Dan Flavin, Martin Hentschel, Ken Johnson, Peter Plagens, and Roberta Smith"--Book jacket

The Real royal trip = El real viaje real by N.Y.) Institute for Contemporary Art (New York( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El título de la muestra hace referencia al cuarto y último viaje de Cristóbal Colón a Centroamérica, seguido del adjetivo real, es decir, verdadero. Tomando como motivo aquella aventura americana, con lo que supuso de intercambios culturales para el mundo, la exposición refleja el carácter dinámico e innovador del arte que en la actualidad se está realizando en España e Iberoamérica, a través de la obra de veinte "artistas-viajeros" de tendencias dispares. Su presencia pone de relieve los vínculos lingüísticos y culturales existentes entre ambos lados del Atlántico que permiten hablar de una cultura en español que no conoce fronteras
Peter Young : paintings, 1963-1980 by Peter Young( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paintings: 1963-1980 is published in conjunct with the Peter Young retrospective at P.S.1 (June 24 through September 24) and is the official catalogue of the exhibition. The book contains 75 plates, featuring work Young made during the first two decades of his career in New York City and Bisbee, AZ, where he currently lives and works. Young first moved to New York in 1960 to study art history at N.Y.U., and went on to study painting at The Art Students League, studying under Steven Green and Estaban Vicente, and graduating in 1963. Young had his first solo show at the Nicolas Wilder Gallery in Los Angeles in 1968, and was included in the 1968 Whitney Biennial and in the 1972 Documenta. The P.S.1 exhibit marks the occasion of Peter Young's first retrospective." "The book features an introduction by PARC Foundation director David Deutsch, a foreword by P.S.1 director Alanna Heiss, as well as essays by Klaus Kertess and Ellen H. Johnson. Kertess's essay "Tribe of One" was written specifically for inclusion in the book, and Johnson's essay "Peter Young: A Chronology of the Work" was reprinted with permission of the Johnson Estate, originally published in Artforum in 1971"--Jacket
Paul Graham : American night by Paul Graham( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Graham's photographs touch upon the social fracture of America -- the great divide -- between included and excluded, white and black, have and have-not. It is a simple topic, shunned these days or only dealt with in clichéd photo-journalism. American Night embraces this neglected territory in a series of shocking images which lodge firmly in our consciousness as they negotiate the boundaries of art and document. The majority of the images are high key photographs which give the feeling of stepping out of a sheltered place into bright sunlight, temporarily blinding the viewer with an overwhelming whiteness. Drained of colour, shadow and form, they resonate with the lives of those they portray walking, carrying, waiting and wandering in the bleached landscape. Then suddenly the sequence snaps to a vibrant full colour image of a freshly minted 'dream home' -- blue sky, green grass and a verdant palette that is perfect beyond attainment -- before returning to the glare of this endless emptiness. A dense series of dark street portraits also disrupts this narrative of light, adding a claustrophobic intensity to the searing reality of the dispossessed in contemporary America."--Publisher's description
