The human factor : the figure in contemporary sculpture by Hayward Gallery (Londres)( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Human Factor: the Figure in Contemporary Sculpture' brings together the work of 25 leading international artists, in whose practice the human form plays a central role. Over the past 25 years, artists have reinvented figurative sculpture by looking back to earlier movements in art history as well as imagery from contemporary culture. Setting up dialogues with modernist as well as classical and archaic models of art, these artists engage and confront the question of how we represent the 'human' today. Eschewing concerns related to psychological portraiture, these artists use the figure as a catalyst for evoking far-ranging content, including subjects spanning political violence and mortality to sexuality and voyeurism. A unique survey of figurative sculpture today, this highly illustrated volume features newly-commissioned essays by authors including Tate Britain Director, Penelope Curtis, art critic and writer Martin Herbert, Artangel co-director James Lingwood, art historian Lisa Lee and Hayward Gallery Director, and curator of the exhibition, Ralph Rugoff. Alongside full-colour images of the artists' works, the book also includes original and rarely-seen material documenting the creation of these fascinating works."--

Rachel Harrison : if I did it by Rachel Harrison( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in German and English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it is good, the art of Rachel Harrison is among the strongest and most provocative around, and the new, radiantly colored assemblages in this exhibition volume are exceptional. Named for famous men, they conduct vigorous internal debates about painting and sculpture, found and made, artwork and pedestal, form and symbol, high and low

Rachel Harrison : museum with walls by Rachel Harrison( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rachel Harrison (born 1966) is one of the most exciting artists making sculptures today. Her assemblages of found and constructed objects carry a provisional quality, a wry sense of humor and an all-embracing intelligence. Playing with materials ranging from plinth, pedestal and corrugated cardboard to plastic ketchup bottles, insulated travel mugs and Barbie's wheelchair-bound friend, Harrison creates colorful, canny, thought-provoking constructions that are worthy peers of Rauschenberg's Combines."--Publisher's description

[Primary Information Postcards]( Visual )

in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This postcard by ... is part of a series devoted to artists' postcards initiated by Primary Information in the wake of the Trump Administration, as well as the social and political tumult that preceded it. Since the election, there has been a growing movement of citizens using postcards to voice their concern to their representatives. As such, the postcard is a media form that is vital to political and social engagement in the United States. It is also a form with a dedicated image space, and Primary Information feels strongly that images accompanying this civic engagement should be created by artists. Each month, Primary Information commissions artists to produce postcards in an ongoing open edition. All postcards are priced at cost. Postcards have long been a part of the artist book tradition, with artists engaging with the form for well over 50 years now. While Primary Information sees this project as a continuation of that very important tradition, the organization also sees the need to double down on this form as a political space embedded with the urgency, diversity, and complexity of voices that are the hallmark of our times. Who better to do this than artists?" --Publisher's website (viewed on November 10, 2017)

Franz West, to build a house you start with the roof : work 1972-2008 by Franz West( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is no easy way to define Franz West's art: it is fundamentally sculptural in its construction, veers frequently toward the biomorphic and prosthetic, mines the intellectualism of Freud and Wittgenstein, and possesses an awkward beauty that speaks with equal fluency to the tradition of painterly abstraction and the aesthetics of trash art. West's distinctive vision has resulted in one of the most remarkable bodies of work produced since the 1960s. This book, with more than 160 color images, offers a comprehensive look at West's work from the 1970s to the present. A unique blend of illustration, essays, interviews, and artist's pages, it accompanies a major retrospective organized by The Baltimore Museum of Art, and includes a new piece created specifically for the exhibition." "Emerging from Vienna's confrontational performance art scene led by the Actionists during the 1960s, West believed from the beginning that physical engagement is an essential function of the art experience. This is clear both in his Adaptives (Passstuck) series (begun in 1974), human-scaled sculptures made of plaster to be held and worn by museum visitors, and in his later installations incorporating cabinets, tables, and chairs. Interaction is no less a premise in West's more recent large-scale outdoor sculptures: a series of brightly painted aluminum works adorning public plazas throughout Europe and the United States." "The book mixes intense visual content with critical commentary, an interview with the artist, a concentrated section on West's working methods, an artist's response to the work through words and images, and an extensive chronology and bibliography."--Jacket

Collagierte Skulpturen : Isa Genzken, Rachel Harrison, Manfred Pernice = Collage sculptures( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collagierte Skulpturen - - Im allgemeinen Sprachgebrauch repräsentieren die Begriffe "Collage" und "Skulptur" ein Gegensatzpaar, das der flachen Collage die dreidimensionale Skulptur als Kontrast gegenüberstellt. Doch seit der Klassischen Moderne wurde dieser Widerspruch zunehmend aufgelöst und zahlreiche Mischformen dieser beiden Medien entwickelt. Die Schau "Collagierte Skulpturen" in KAI 10 zeigte eine Auswahl plastischer Arbeiten von Isa Genzken, Rachel Harrison und Manfred Pernice, wobei sie sich auf die spezifischen, collagierten Objekte dieser KünstlerInnen konzentriert. Die gewisse Unbestimmtheit des Ausstellungstitels "Collagierte Skulpturen" entspricht dem Charakter der gezeigten Werke, der sich weder der einen noch der anderen Gestaltungsform eindeutig zuordnen lässt. - - Künstler: - Isa Genzken, Rachel Harrison, Manfred Pernice

“To ask what these images want, then, is having to face the possibility that perhaps they want nothing at all, or nothing in particular. Except, of course, to stun and fascinate: to be allowed to ‘matter,’ to be taken into account, to be seen. And something in this scenario is of course reminiscent of the highly theatrical productions of rock, its quasi-ritualistic deployment of ‘looks’ and ‘images’ that revel in the crude, the incongruous, the over-sophisticated, and the plain stupid—in short, in the big whatever.”
