The epic of Qayaq : the longest story ever told by my people by Lela Kiana Oman( )

4 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 1,353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Longest Story Ever Told by My People is a splendid presentation of an ancient northern story cycle, brought to life by Lela Kiana Oman, who has been retelling and writing the legends of the Inupiat of the Kobuk Valley, Alaska, nearly all her adult life. In the mid-1940s, she heard these tales from storytellers passing through the mining town of Candle, and translated them from Inupiaq into English. Now, after fifty years, they illuminate one of the world's most vibrant mythologies." "The hero is Qayaq, and the cycle traces his wanderings by kayak and on foot along four rivers - the Selawik, the Kobuk, the Noatak and the Yukon - up along the Arctic Ocean to Barrow, over to Herschel Island in Canada, and south to a Tlingit Indian village. Along the way he battles with jealous fathers-in-law and other powerful adversaries; discovers cultural implements (the copper-headed spear and the birchbark canoe); transforms himself into animals, birds and fish, and meets animals who appear to be human." "Qayaq is richly illustrated from the Priscilla Tyler and Maree Brooks Collection of Inuit Art, housed at Carleton University Art Gallery. A scholarly preface by Ann Chandonnet explains the conventions of Native Alaskan storytelling, and there is an introduction by Priscilla Tyler and Maree Brooks: art collectors, friends, and conservators of Oman's story legacy for many years."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Photomontage between the wars, 1918-1939 by Adrian Sudhalter( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The extensive range of posters, collages, maquettes, postcards, magazines, and books featured in this exhibition catalogue attests to the enormous influence of photomontage in politics, social protest, and advertising, while also demonstrating the popularity of the technique among avant-garde artists during these two decades. Essays in this visually rich publication examine contemporary texts that the practice of photomontage inspired, and explore those qualities of photomontage that led to what was arguably the most important exhibition devoted to this artistic technique at the Kunstgewerbemuseum in Berlin in 1931. The present volume includes a facsimile reproduction and translation of the catalogue published on the occasion of that exhibition. In addition to a brief chronology, the interested reader will also find a selection of text - some scarcely familiar today - by authors of various nationalities that sheds further light on the practice. Produced to accompany the exhibition in Spain and available in North America for the first time, this entirely English-language publication offers a fascinating overview of the birth of the photomontage process specifically in Germany and the Soviet Union in the 1920s

Invention & revival : the colour drypoints of David Milne & John Hartman by Rosemarie L Tovell( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Upon his death in 1953 David Milne was hailed by art critic Clement Greenberg as one of the greatest artists of the time. Among Milne's many achievements was the invention of the multiple-plate colour drypoint. This entirely new process was the simplest of techniques. Lines are scratched into copper or zinc plates, creating a residual metal "burr" that later catches the ink, creating soft lines more akin to drawing than to the finely detailed lines of etching or engraving. Milne exploited his invention to gorgeous effect but despite - or perhaps because of - his mastery of it, other artists did not follow suit. Decades later, John Hartman was inspired to take up the technique and has produced a remarkable body of prints that shares much in common with Milne's oeuvre, in aesthetic, geographic, and spiritual terms. In order to explore the affinities between the two artists, this publication brings together forty-two prints by Milne and Hartman, including Hartman's spectacular Cities series, which demonstrates his continuing drive to push the limits of the drypoint technique. Two scholarly essays and a conversation between John Hartman and the son of David Milne are accompanied by forty-two full-page colour plates. Rosemarie Tovell is former curator at the National Gallery of Canada and a leading authority on David Milne. Anne-Marie Ninacs is former curator of contemporary art at the Musee national des beaux-arts du Quebec."--BOOK JACKET

Making otherwise : craft and material fluency in contemporary art( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today, there is an increasing permeability between the realms of craft and art occurring in step with an emphasis on the handmade in contemporary art practice and in the widespread interest in all things handcrafted. 'Making Otherwise' presents the work of six Canadian artists who merge the material and conceptual approaches of craft and art: Richard Boulet (Alberta), Ursula Johnson (Nova Scotia), Marc Courtemanche (Quebec), Paul Mathieu (British Columbia), Sarah Maloney (Nova Scotia), and Janet Morton (Ontario). Drawing on their fluency in ceramics, basket weaving, furniture making, stitchery, bronze casting, woodworking, and knitting, these artists think through materials, forms, and ideas to make things differently or otherwise. 00Exhibition: Carleton University Art Gallery, Ottawa (12.05.-04.09.2014) / Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery, Halifax (09.10.-30.11.2014) / Cambridge Art Galleries, Cambridge, Canada (01.05.-27.06.2015)
