Most widely held works by Serpentine Gallery (London)
Derek Jarman : brutal beauty by Derek Jarman( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in German and English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brutal Beauty presents Isaac Julien's vision of Derek Jarman as a true Renaissance man - a painter, director, activist, diarist, and gardenter - whose range of enterprises belies a consistent preoccupation with liberated sexual politics and the defiance of inherited mores."--BOOK JACKET
Herzog & de Meuron + Ai Weiwei : Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2012 by Herzog & de Meuron( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2008, Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron and Chinese artist Ai Weiwei joined forces to design the celebrated Beijing National Stadium for the Olympic Games. In 2012, the team came together again for the Serpentine Gallery's acclaimed annual commission, as part of the London 2012 Festival, the culmination of the Cultural Olympiad. Their pavilion takes visitors beneath the Serpentine's lawn to explore the hidden history of its previous pavilions. Supporting the structure from below, eleven columns symbolize past pavilions, and a twelfth represents the current one. The pavilion's interior is clad in cork, to evoke the excavated earth, and is built as a network of pathways and trenches. Herzog & de Meuron and Weiwei's archaeological approach creates a space that invites visitors to look beneath the surface of the park as well as back in time to the inspiration of earlier structures

Gerhard Richter : 4900 colours by Gerhard Richter( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Composed of bright monochrome squares randomly arranged in a grid to create stunning sheets of kaleidoscopic color, Gerhard Richter's 4900 Colors (2007) - the latest result of the artist's long-term exploration of seriality - was created just following the completion of his design for the south transept window of Cologne Cathedral, unveiled in August 2007, which is made of 11,500 hand-blown squares of glass in 72 colors. 4900 Colors consists of 196 panels of 25 different colored squares that can be reconfigured in 11 variations, from one large-scale piece to multiple, smaller paintings. Version II - 49 identically sized paintings, each 38 x 38 inches - was produced for Richter's 2008 Serpentine Gallery exhibition, also catalogued here, alongside texts by critics Benjamin Buchloh, Peter Gidal and Birgit Pelzer as well as Serpentine Director, Julia Peyton Jones and Serpentine Co-Director of Exhibitions Hans Ulrich Obrist."--BOOK JACKET

Hans-Peter Feldmann : Katalog = catalogue by Hans-Peter Feldmann( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For his Serpentine exhibition, Feldmann presents works from throughout his career. Among the earliest works is a series of booklets titled Bilder (Pictures), each consisting of a collection of photographs of everyday subjects or situations. His Time Series, produced during the mid-1970s, expanded upon this, chronicling the most banal events frame by frame, thereby effectively slowing down the passage of time. Feldmann is a prolific producer of artist's books. His publications have been instrumental in establishing the genre as a recognisable form of artistic practice, influencing generations of artists who have followed him. Feldmann's appetite for amassing cultural artefacts is demonstrated in a new work presented for the first time at the Serpentine. The artist purchased a number of ladies' handbags along with their entire contents, filling museological vitrines with credit cards, mobile telephones and address books, making passing fashions and lifestyle choices the object of display and public discussion. Also seen for the first time at the Serpentine is Seascapes, a collection of 15 traditional oil paintings in conventional frames shown as a group

Jeff Koons by Jeff Koons( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jeff Koons' Popeye series, begun in 2002, incorporates some of the artist's signature themes and motifs: the surrealistic combination of everyday objects, cartoon imagery, outsized scale, art-historical references and children's toys. The sculptures reproduced here continue Koons' fondness for casting inflatable toys in aluminum-carefully painted to resemble supple plastic-which he juxtaposes here with unaltered everyday objects, such as chairs or garbage cans. The Popeye paintings are complex and layered compositions that combine disparate images both found and created by Koons (including images of the sculptures in the series). The instantly recognizable figures of Popeye and Olive Oyl are central, and recur across several key works within the book. Frederic Tuten, Arthur C. Danto and Dorothea von Hantelmann provide commentary on this fun body of work, which Koons discusses in a conversation with Julia Peyton-Jones and Hans Ulrich Obrist
