Witches & wicked bodies by Deanna Petherbridge( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Witches & Wicked Bodies provides an innovative, rich survey of images of European witchcraft from the sixteenth century to the present day. It focuses on the representation of female witches and the enduring stereotypes they embody, ranging from hideous old crones to beautiful young seductresses. Such imagery has ancient precedents and has been repeatedly re-invented by artists over the centuries. Deanna Petherbridge introduces this fascinating subject and includes insightful catalogue entries on each of the exhibited works. The illustrations primarily feature drawings and prints as well as a group of important paintings, all from British collections. A wide range of artists is represented including Durer, Cranach, Goya, Fuseli, Blake, Burra, Sherman and Rego.-p.4 of cover
Artists at work by Deanna Petherbridge( Book )

9 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This trans-historical exhibition of drawings is devoted to the subject of the artist at work. Drawn principally from a very fine specialist private collection, this display will focus on the depictions of artists' studios, their own portraits, models and assistants in symbolic, as well as from life, representations of the metier of drawing, painting and sculpture. Art historians have interpreted these themes variously as the means of elevating the social and economic status of artists; of illustrating the marriage of intellectual knowledge and practical skill proposed by academic theorists, or as sophisticated allegories of the philosophical significance of visual art. Even at the most pragmatic level of recording the clutter of the everyday studio, drawing human models or antique casts in an academy, or small figures sketching in landscape, works with these subjects are imbued with layers of meaning. This focused exhibition, spanning from the 16th to the 20th centuries, proposes to explore this rich subject matter through a carefully selected group of graphic works

The producers : contemporary curators in conversation (2) by S Hiller( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The expansion and evolution in the curator's role that has occurred during the last decade is increasingly mirrored in the terminology used to define that role. There are now almost as many words to describe the various activities of the art mediator as there are approaches to the making of exhibitions. 'Selectors', 'programmers', 'facilitators', 'commissioners', 'organisers' and 'producers' are all variations on the curatorial theme and in some cases these terms are interchangeable. Whilst the aims of the practitioners within this everexpanding field are essentially the same - to create the best possible context in which to experience art - their perceptions of what this means in practical terms may be very different. The Producers is the title of a series of events at the University of Newcastle in which leading figures in the curatorial arena discuss their craft before an audience of artists, students and exhibition-makers. Organised by BALTIC Professor of Contemporary Art, Susan Hiller, 'The Producers' makes a unique and significant contribution to the ongoing debate about the nature of contemporary curatorship
Deanna Petherbridge : drawing and dialogue by Deanna Petherbridge( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1960s, Deanna Petherbridge's practice has moved between making drawings and writing critically about art and architecture. She has designed murals and stage-sets, curated exhibitions, taught in the studio and lectured internationally? a career trajectory that has anticipated the multiple practices of younger conceptual artists. Drawing is her primary concern? both as an artist and as a historian of practice. Her drawings are to be found in major collections. This new monograph, published to coincide with a retrospective at the Whitworth Art Gallery, celebrates the vitality and originality of an extraordinary body of work
