How latitudes become forms : art in a global age by Philippe Vergne( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The rise of globalism has created tremendous challenges to old economic, political, and cultural paradigms, and these changes are reflected in artistic practices. Disciplinary boundaries are crossed as easily as geographical ones. How does the new internationalism that we are facing affect aesthetics and artistic production? Is there a link, for example, between the rise of video works and the global availability of the digital medium? Does the global information age facilitate an 'international language of art' and an alternative reading of art history, toward art histories? From the perspective of a museum of modern and contemporary art, the institution has to overcome a majore contradiction between its mission of permanence and its mission of change. How can cultural institutions contribute to the revamping of their own structures now that the hegemony of Western modernity is being challenged? How can museums connect with new audiences through different practices, different scholarship, and different interpretative strategies growing out of the sedimentation of their histories? To invite and encourage such dialogue, 'How latitudes become forms : art in a global age' looks at current scholarship on globalism and changing curatorial practices, and identifies critical models provided by artists themselves. This catalogue features thought-provoking essays and conversations by curators, critics, and cultural programmers from across the world as well as the multidisciplinary artworks of more than forty visual, film/video, performing, and new media artists from Brazil, China, India, Japan, South Africa, Turkey, and the United States." -- book cover

Gu shi xin bian = Tales of our time by N.Y.) Guggenheim Museum (New York( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and Chinese and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tales of Our Time' presents works by seven artists based in mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan: Sun Xun, Zhou Tao, Chia-En Jao, Kan Xuan, the Yangjiang Group, Sun Yuan & Peng Yu and Tsang Kin-Wah. Working in video, sculpture, installation, mixed media on paper and participatory intervention, these artists poetically balance politics and aesthetics. The exhibition and accompanying catalogue offer a heterogeneous view of contemporary art from China and highlight tensions between individual narratives and the constructions of mainstream history. A conceptual extension of the exhibition, the catalogue functions as a hybrid of a traditional exhibition publication and a fiction collection. Featuring scholarly essays and artwork descriptions, it presents an unconventional examination of the artists whose practices challenge current dialogues about Chinese art. In seven commissioned short stories, Chinese and American writers explore contemporary society through the art of storytelling."--Publisher's description

Michael Lin by Michael Ming Hong Lin( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michael Lin is highly regarded for his monumental painted installations that reconfigure and redesign public spaces. Using patterns based on traditional Taiwanese textiles, his work has been integrated into museum cafés, lobbies, galleries and façades in many countries, dynamically transforming their architecture and the the way they are perceived by the public.For his solo exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Michael Lin has created an enormous hand-painted mural that will cover the Gallery’s Georgia Street façade, bringing his artwork outside the traditional confines of the Gallery space. Expanding on his interest in veiling the institution, he has also conceived a book-wrapping project for the Gallery Store, which will cover Gallery publications in a wrapping paper of his own design.Raised in Taiwan, Lin lives between Brussels, Shanghai and Taipei. His work reflects the influence of these diverse sites of cultural production and his movement between them
Wherever we go : art, identity, cultures in transit = Ovunque andiamo : arte, identità, culture in transito by Italy) Spazio Oberdan (Milan( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in Italian and English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They cross borders, spanning territories and cultures; wherever they go they gather information and borrow images, styles, and languages. For a variety of reasons, they have left their native soil. They are artists from around the world: from Europe to Southeast Asia, the Middle East to America. What unites them is an intercultural outlook that is not a deliberate choice, but a response to the stimuli and the influences of the different environments in which they have ended up living. Published in conjunction with the exhibition co-organized by the Spazio Oberdan in Milan and the San Francisco Art Institute, Wherever We Go brings together more than fifty works (videos, sculptures, installations, drawings, and photographs) by twenty-three artists from around the world. Challenging any unequivocal or simplistic definition, the works of these artists invite us to reflect on themes of displacement and migration, citizenship and representation. The works convey the complex and stratified character of today's society, and reflect a composite world, with fluid borders and broadened horizons, a world permeated by tensions and anything but at peace in its many components, but one that is culturally rich and fascinating
Dan shou pai zhang( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in Multiple languages and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'One Hand Clapping', five artists from Greater China--Cao Fei, Duan Jianyu, Lin Yilin, Wong Ping and Samson Young--explore the ways in which globalization affects our understanding of the future. From a film shot at the industrial facilities of mainland China to a virtual reality intervention into the Guggenheim's iconic rotunda and musical compositions for imaginary instruments that defy the laws of physics, these works examine our systems of exchange, communication and production, and engage creatively with the future as a form of poetic revolution. Essays by the exhibition's organizers, Xiaoyu Weng and Hou Hanru, are joined by a theoretical text on technology and culture by the philosopher Yuk Hui, selected poems by millennial poets and sections presenting materials related to the commissioning process for each of the artists."
