William Eggleston : democratic camera, photographs and video, 1961-2008 by Elisabeth Sussman( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elvis's Graceland, a freezer stuffed with food, a Gulf gasoline sign standing in a deserted rural landscape, these are only a few of the iconic images captured by the "democratic camera" of photographer William Eggleston. Not only has he drawn upon images so telling of American culture, he has produced them with an intensity and balance of color that have helped elevate the entire field of color photography to a fine art, especially since his 1976 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. Drawing together Eggleston̕s famous and lesser known works, this lavishly illustrated catalogue is the first to examine both his photography and videos. Of particular relevance are his black and white images from the late 1950s and 1960s, which helped shape his color photography, as well as the relationship between his provocative video recordings of 1970s Memphis nightlife and his later work. Included are reproductions of newly restored prints, executed specifically for the exhibition. Filled with new and challenging contributions to scholarship and accompanying the first major U.S. survey of his work, this catalogue will prove the standard reference for Eggleston's photographs for years to come

Ana Mendieta : earth body : sculpture and performance, 1972-1985 by Olga M Viso( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book traces Ana Mendieta's (1948-85) development from the early performance-based works made as a student at the University of Iowa, where she was grounded in the conceptual and body-oriented practices of the 1960s and 1970s, to the creation of independent sculptures and objects in the early 1980s made with fragile, earthen materials. Rooted in nature and in the body, Mendieta's art was inflected by personal identity and femininity, and distinguished by its insistent hybridity. Her earth-body works, or Silueta Series (silhouette series), fused aspects of conceptual, process, performance, body, feminist, and land art. While contributing significantly to these varied dialogues, her work does not fit neatly within any of the accepted terms used to describe artistic activity in the decade." "Born in Havana, Cuba, Mendieta came to the United States as a twelve-year-old political refugee. Her personal and professional development was greatly informed by the painful experience of exile as well as the cross-fertilization of Caribbean and North American values. While deeply rooted in her personal experience, Mendieta's art reveals a passionate desire to connect with a wider, collective human heritage. Her aim to unravel layers of individual and social history and unmask latent ethnic, cultural, and gender biases in society, was to foster greater self-awareness and comprehension of the complex diversity of humanity. It is for this reason that her humble yet prolific production as an artist continues to be relevant today. Its meaning has particular resonance in a global society struggling to grasp the overwhelming points of correspondences and differences between individual, nation, and culture."--Jacket

Kienholz, a retrospective by Edward Kienholz( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tableaux, environments, and conceptual pieces of Edward Kienholz and Nancy Reddin Kienholz are direct, powerful, and uncompromising. The works span four decades, beginning with Edward's pieces from the 1950s and continuing with those produced jointly with Nancy Reddin Kienholz from 1972 until Edward's death in 1994. Emerging from the Beat aesthetic of the early 1950s, the Kienholz oeuvre embraces the honest spontaneity of jazz, the emotional intensity of Abstract Expressionism, and the homemade approach of do-it-yourself modernism. At the same time, it is also socially conscious realist sculpture by artists resolutely engaged in an ongoing critique of the world around them. The Kienholzes probed the dark edges of postwar society, confronting war, racism, institutional indifference, sexuality, and cruelty. Published on the occasion of an important retrospective exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, Kienholz: A Retrospective is the most fully illustrated book ever published on the Kienholz oeuvre. It reproduces in more than four hundred illustrations a selection of works ranging from intimate collages to life-size tableaux, created between 1954 and 1994. The eight texts in the catalogue - by art and social historians, artists, and friends - offer critical insights into the Kienholz work as well as personal reminiscences. Nancy Reddin Kienholz has also contributed an extended chronology, written especially for this publication
Frank Stella : a retrospective by Frank Stella( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Showcasing works from all of his major series, the book surveys the full sweep of Stella's career, from his artistic beginnings in high school and college to today. The plates section comprises more than 100 works, including paintings, sculptures, reliefs, and works on paper. Notable inclusions are his seminal Black Paintings, recent high-relief aluminum works, and a selection of drawings, maquettes, and digital renderings--many of which are reproduced here for the first time--that offer fresh insight into Stella's thinking and process. Essays discuss topics such as the artist's early years at Phillips Academy in Andover and Princeton University, and his late-career architectural pieces created with the aid of computer software. An interview with Stella conducted by American painter Laura Owens allows Stella to illuminate his artistic practice in his own words. Additional resources include a chronology with extensive bibliographic and exhibition references."

Edward Hopper and the American imagination by Deborah Lyons( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume includes fifty-nine of Hopper's most important works in full color as well as original works by fiction writers and poets that pay homage to, or make reference to, the ways in which Hopper pictured our world. Hopper's themes of alienation and loneliness, empty cityscapes and countrysides, the stark light of Cape Cod, silent hills and houses - all have been indelibly imprinted on our collective sense of ourselves and our country. This work celebrates the impact Hopper's imagery continues to have on contemporary culture and is dedicated to a fuller understanding of Hopper's place in the American mind
