The American century : art & culture, 1950-2000 by Lisa Phillips( Book )

19 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second half of the twentieth century has been a time of rapid change and accelerated cycles of creativity. In this volume, Lisa Phillips keeps pace with the dizzying energy of these decades by focusing on the avant-garde - the artists who propelled American art after World War II and who continually challenge our basic assumptions about what art is and what the role of the artist should be within the turbulent social atmosphere of twentieth-century America. Sidebar essays by a variety of experts in related fields highlight the broad cultural context - from rock 'n' roll to underground film to postmodern dance - in which vanguard American art flourished."--Jacket

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first comprehensive monograph on the acclaimed American artist and architect, known for her environmental works and memorials that distill a tranquil yet texturally rich minimalism. Maya Lin is one of the most important public artists of this century. As an architecture student at Yale, Lin designed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial as a class project, entering it in the largest design competition in American history. Her winning proposal, a V-shaped wall of black stone etched with the names of 58,000 dead soldiers, has since become the most visited memorial in the nation's capital

8 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chris Burden : extreme measures by Chris Burden( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chris Burden (b. 1946) is one of the most important artists of our time. In his over four-decade career, he has consistently challenged physical and psychological limits, redefining art in the process. This catalogue includes ten essays and personal reflections by noted art historians, artists, and writers who explore the significance and influence of his practice, and is published on the occasion of the exhibition "Chris Burden: Extreme Measures" at the New Museum-the artists first solo museum exhibition in New York and the first US survey of his work in over twenty years. As a student in Southern California in the early 1970's, Burden indelibly wrote himself into art history and popular consciousness with a series of performances in which he used his own body as subject and medium. From these epoch-defining works to the monumental sculptures he has constructed since the late 70's, he has continuously embodied cultural reflection, risk, and reinvention. This long-overdue book and exhibition reveal the life's work of a great artist whose emergence at once destabilized and reaffirmed convictions about art, and who has never relented in pushing art beyond its boundaries to new extremes
David Salle by Janet Kardon( Book )

5 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a collection of works by American painter David Salle (b. 1952), who helped define the post-modern sensibility by combining figuration with an extremely varied pictorial language. The works in this book are derived from the catalog of an exhibition held at the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pa., Oct. 9-Nov. 30, 1986, and at other North American locations through 1988. Salle's paintings comprise what appear to be randomly juxtaposed images, or images painted on top of each other with deliberately primitive paint handling. Typical of Salle's style are his deadpan use of imagery and techniques appropriated from Old Master and modernist works and of apparently unrelated images (sometimes highly erotic figures of women) superimposed on one another. In addition, his usually large canvases often represent a mixture of figuration and abstraction and of painting and collage techniques
Paul McCarthy by Paul McCarthy( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Working from a pioneering fusion of sculpture and conceptually based performance, Paul McCarthy is one of the most influential, yet least recognized artists in the U.S. today. While his architectural installations incorporating video and performance artifacts have received critical and curatorial attention during the present decade, few viewers are familiar with his artistic evolution, or with the impact his work has had on two generations of Los Angeles artists. This publication, covering about 400 works from all areas of his activity, gives an exemplary insight into McCarthy's works from the early 1970s up to the present day. Experts on his work give comprehensive descriptions and analyses of the American artist's performances and installations, examine the unique ties between his works and cinema, and explore the dialogue between New York and Los Angeles, particularly in the formulation and development of conceptual art."--Publisher's description

Experience by Carsten Höller( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carsten Höller has created a world that is equal parts laboratory and fun house. He explores important themes such as architecture, childhood, love, happiness, hallucination, and the future. Trained as a scientist, his work often takes the form of experiments designed to test the limits of human sensorial experience through carefully controlled situations. The exhibition presents a selection of pieces that highlight the different visual or experiential dimensions of Höller's groundbreaking work. A number of signature works are presented, including his stroboscopic light installations, disorienting architectural environments, and a mirrored carousel. This beautifully illustrated book is organized around approximately twenty significant themes developed in his work. Each of the themes is explored by an extraordinary group of curators and writers, including Daniel Birnbaum, Gary Carrion-Murayari, Germano Celant, Lynne Cooke, Hal Foster, Massimiliano Gioni, Jessica Morgan, Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Philippe Parreno, Gloria Sutton, and Rosemarie Trockel, among many others. This book is in association with the New Museum.--Publisher description
1993 biennial exhibition by Whitney Museum of American Art( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lari Pittman by Lari Pittman( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lari Pittman's meticulously rendered paintings employ a complex mix of symbols and images to create dense and compelling narratives on love, violence, and desire. Drawing upon design, folk art, and decorative traditions, Pittman's brightly colored paintings incorporate and rework a range of styles and genres--Victorian silhouettes, social realist murals, and Mexican retablos--to conjure a hallucinatory effect unique in contemporary painting. Pittman has earned numerous accolades in the art world and has been included in the Venice Biennale, Documenta X, and four Whitney Biennials
Money talks by Barbara Kruger( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's "Business as usual" in Krugerland, and the artist's familiar text and found image montages still wallop a stinging punch. Her appropriated photographs and provocative text, with their confrontational graphic nature reminiscent of Dada collage and photomontage, address cultural representations of power, identity, and sexuality in the most charged of visual languages. Though the work collected here was made in the 1980s, it has unfortunately not lost any of its relevance. Big business still rules the world and money still talks. Haliburton, anyone? Political bribery? Advertising prostitution? "Money Talks is the first publication to bring together a thematic grouping of Kruger's work, and the subject chosen couldn't be more apt, not only because of current politics and economic realities, but also because it's the subject Kruger has repeatedly returned to most potently
