1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wystan Curnow is New Zealand's longest-serving and, arguably, most important art critic. This edited collection brings together a selection of his art writings from 1971 to 2013 to provide the first comprehensive overview of his practice. Selectively drawing on his considerable ouput, the publication features Curnow's long form essays that investigate the stakes for 'high culture' in a 'small province' like New Zealand; major essays on key artists including Len Lye, Colin McCahon, Billy Apple, Stephen Bambury, Max Gimblett, and Imants Tillers; vivid reports on the contemporary art scene; catalogue essays and short reviews that offer insightful readings of art and artists in all their material and conceptual specificity. Both a map of contemporary theory and practice and a cogent agenda for thinking through the implications and challenges of making art here, this compilation is an essential companion for anyone interested in New Zealand art as it has unfolded since 1970."--Publisher's website

Dark sky( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"DARK SKY, the Adam Art Gallery's current exhibition explores how photography has been deployed to capture the skies. Delving into the intersections between science, art and commerce, the exhibition brings together a range of images and artworks from 1874 to the present. These range from pocket-sized Real-Photo Postcards, to digital prints sent from space, to large-scale contemporary images and multipart installations, made by artists, astronomers, professional photographers, and unmanned spacecraft. Timed to coincide with the second and last Transit of Venus that will take place this century (on 6 June 2012), the exhibition provides an occasion to think through our fascination for the celestial realm and examine its technological and visual consequences."--Publisher website
