Marmalade me by Jill Johnston( )

15 editions published between 1971 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marmalade Me, originally published in 1971, directly preceded publication of Lesbian Nation and achieved cult status on its own as Johnston's critical reputation grew. Reissued here with eighteen previously uncollected articles, this book provides a fascinating view of the sixties and one of the art world's most influential voices
Jasper Johns : privileged information by Jill Johnston( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and Italian and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a remarkable feat of biography and criticism, Jill Johnston shows how the life and work of America's preeminent artist are inextricably linked. As we follow the arc of Jasper Johns's career - from the raw loft he lived in as an unknown artist to the dining rooms of wealthy collectors that he now frequents as a "consummated artist"--We discover an artist who has consistently introduced intensely intimate elements into his work yet is compelled to disguise and deny those very elements

Ultimate Weapon: Oppenheimer And The Atomic Bomb( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"J. Robert Oppenheimer, the Father of the A-bomb, creates the world's deadliest weapon of mass destruction--with the "power of 1,000 suns" it can annihilate tens of thousands in a moment. His scientific brilliance is the power behind the atom bombs used against the Japanese during WWII, but his conscience led him to question the invention that helped end the war. Watch as Oppenheimer paces anxiously in New Mexico while the crew on a B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, deploys the massive "Little Boy" bomb towards the Aioi Bridge in Hiroshima. The resulting massive loss of life leads Oppenheimer to rethink the way in which nuclear energy was to be used."--Http://media.aetv.com

5 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Admission accomplished : the Lesbian nation years (1970-75) by Jill Johnston( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays, many of which appeared in her books Lesbian Nation and Gullibles Travels, break with convention and tackle social issues as current today as when they were written: coming out and "outing" public icons; gay marriage and monogamy; solidarity and betrayal between gay men and lesbians, and between straight feminists and lesbians; the men's movement and misogyny. Johnston was the first writer to come out in the mass media, and the only one to sustain this kind of exposure over a revolutionary span of time
Pride : photographs after Stonewall by Fred W McDarrah( )

3 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ultimate chronicler of New York's downtown scene, and therefore of a signal moment in gay culture, was Fred W. McDarrah, the first staff photographer and first picture editor of the legendary Village Voice. On the streets in the aftermath of Stonewall, at the first marches, and among the activists and artists who defined the movement through the 1990s, McDarrah's camera engaged with the period's chaos, anger, and intense optimism. As the critic Hilton Als puts in his foreword, McDarrah deserves a lasting place in New York's alternative history not only for his documentation of a world in transformation, but for his work as 'an agent of change himself'"--Cover
Niki de Saint Phalle and the Tarot Garden by Niki de Saint-Phalle( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Without Death, Life has no meaning" : Niki de Saint Phalle's death in May 2002 meant the loss of a woman of diverse creative talent. For fans of mosaic though, her great lagacy centers on the huge Cyclops in the Fontainbleu forest near Paris, and her stunning sculpture garden in Italy. The Tarot Garden (Giardino Dei Tarocchi) is an exploration of the human condition whose medium is mosaic on a monumental scale. These almost impossibly brightly coloured combinations of buildings and sculpture reflect the metaphysical qualities represented by the 22 main tarot cards (the major arcana). They're not concerned with the fortune-telling uses of the cards, rather the elements of life's experience, personality and self-knowledge they refer to. Work on the garden began in 1979 and the main part of the work was carried out in the 1980s; it was officially opened to the public in May 1998. During construction Niki de Saint Phalle lived in the sphinx-like Empress, a mirror-glassed cavern with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom leading off. The Garden is situated close to the coast in the south of the Italian province of Tuscany. It is about 70 miles (110 kilometres) northwest of Rome, near the town of Capalbio. I won't pretend that my photos, taken on an overcast afternoon in September, do the works of art justice. However I hope they convey the impact and cumulative power of these wonderfully expressive mosaics. You can choose from the thumbnails below, or start at the fountain and tour through. There are 25 more pictures in galleries two and three, and still more on the Niki de Saint Phalle web site. -- Text from the joys of shards website (see link)

Neo-Dada : redefining art, 1958-62 by Susan Hapgood( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ironic wit, the challenging images, and the experimental methods of the renegade artists of the late 1950s and early 1960s are closely examined, offering a fresh view of the many manifestations of the art that was once considered a movement. The works of the original Dadaists, Marcel Duchamp and Kurt Schwitters, are introduced as the main influences on the younger artists' own readymades, found objects, detritus, environmental, and performance pieces. The diverse works of Arman, Jasper Johns, Allan Kaprow, Robert Rauschenberg, Jean Tinguely, among others, are discussed, linking the previously unconnected movements of Pop Art, Fluxus, and Nouveau Realisme in the first catalogue to focus on this powerful and provocative phenomenon
