Uncommon ground : land art in Britain, 1966-1979( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uncommon Ground proposes a new reading of British art between the mid-1960s and early 1980s, placing landscape and nature at the heart of the emerging avant-garde movements of the period. During a time of seismic cultural and political change, artists on both sides of the Atlantic turned away from the enclosed space of the gallery and went out into the landscape. Encompassing sculpture, performance, photography, film, Minimalism and Conceptual art--particularly the latter--the wide-ranging practices represented in this book engage with the once-derided and seemingly exhausted genre of landscape. Uncommon Ground includes works by Andy Goldsworthy, Anthony McCall, Antony Gormley, Barry Flanagan, Boyle Family, Bruce McLean, David Lamelas, David Nash, David Tremlett, Derek Jarman, Garry Fabian Miller, Hamish Fulton, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Jan Dibbets, John Hilliard, John Latham, Keith Arnatt, Richard Long, Roelof Louw, Roger Ackling, Roger Palmer, Susan Hiller, Thomas Joshua Cooper and Tony Cragg

The indiscipline of painting by Martin Clark( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Indiscipline of Painting is an international group exhibition including works by forty-nine artists from the 1960s to now. Selected by British painter Daniel Sturgis, it considers how the languages of abstraction have remained urgent, relevant and critical as they have been revisited and reinvented by subsequent generations of artists over the last 50 years. It goes on to demonstrate the way in which the history and legacy of abstract painting continues to inspire artists working today. The contemporary position of abstract painting is problematic. It can be seen to be synonymous with a modernist moment that has long since passed, and an ideology which led the medium to stagnate in self-reflexivity and ideas of historical progression. The Indiscipline of Painting challenges such assumptions. It reveals how painting's modernist histories, languages and positions have continued to provoke ongoing dialogues with contemporary practitioners, even as painting's decline and death has been routinely and erroneously declared. The show brings together works by British, American and European artists made over the last five decades and features major new commissions and loans. It includes important works by Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, Gerhard Richter and Bridget Riley alongside other lesser known artists such as Tomma Abts, Martin Barré, Mary Heilmann and Jeremy Moon
Making it : sculpture in Britain, 1977-1986 by Jon Wood( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The late 1970s and 1980s witnessed the emergence of a younger generation of artists working in the United Kingdom who began to receive international attention for practices which, although incredibly diverse, shared a revived interest in the sculpted object, in materials and in ideas around making. Some of these artists, such as Kate Blacker, Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, Antony Gormley, Shirazeh Houshiary, Anish Kapoor, Richard Wentworth and Alison Wilding, rose to prominence under the loose banner New British Sculpture , while other artists, such as Eric Bainbridge, Helen Chadwick, Julian Opie, Cornelia Parker and Richard Wilson, were forging reputations for their innovative approaches to sculpture. 'Making It: Sculpture in Britain 1977¬ 1986' provides a comprehensive insight into the explosion of contemporary sculpture in Britain during the late 1970s and 1980s, launching the careers of some the most re¬nowned contemporary artists that the UK has produced

Phyllida Barlow : Stint by Phyllida Barlow( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

STINT is an exhibition of works by Phyllida Barlow, one of the most influential sculptors working in Britain today. STINT is a major new commission for the Mead Gallery and features a series of new sculptures which revisit familiar ideas and themes in Barlow's work. Her work incorporates an enormous range of mass produced materials including cardboard, fabric, paper, glue, paint, plastic, wood, rubber, hardboard, and adhesive tape. Barlow's work questions the nature and role of the sculptural object in contemporary culture, utilising an extensive, fluid vocabulary and immense enthusiasm for engaging with the physical 'stuff' of the world. She creates new relationships, experimenting with unexpected combinations of materials creating objects and environments, which encourage us to see the everyday world with fresh eyes. This beautifully designed large-format catalogue contains numerous exhibition installation views, mini insert images of the new works, and an extensive interview with the artist. Published on the occasion of the exhibition Phyllida Barlow: STINT at Mead Gallery, Warwick Arts Centre, October - December 2008

Kaleidoscope : colour and sequence in 1960s British art by Sam Cornish( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bold colours, alluring surfaces, unpredictable forms - the exuberant qualities of 1960s British art are well known. Less familiar to many is the defined order that often underpinned the art of the period, an order founded on repetition, sequence and symmetry. Bringing together outstanding examples of painting and sculpture from the Arts Council Collection and other major UK collections, Kaleidoscope: Colour and Sequence in 1960s British Art offers a fresh and renewed perspective of the period, looking across media and movements, from the brightly-coloured abstract forms of New Generation sculpture to the mind-bending surfaces of Op Art, the flattened motifs of Pop, and the mathematical order of the Constructionists. --Publisher's website
