Unmonumental : the object in the 21st century( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unmonumental: The Object in the 21st Century" is the first exhibition in the "Unmonumental" cycle, and explores the reinvention of sculptural assemblage. Using found, fragmented, and discarded materials, the works of the artists on view make a case for modesty, informality, and improvisation. The exhibition includes more than one hundred objects by thirty artists who represent a wide range of backgrounds and artistic strategies
Chris Burden : extreme measures by Chris Burden( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 271 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

Chris Ofili : night and day by Chris Ofili( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A major survey including new and celebrated works by Turner Prize-winning artist Chris Ofili. Set to accompany the first major museum show in the United States of contemporary British artist Chris Ofili, this richly illustrated volume surveys two decades of artworks that meld figuration, abstraction, and decoration to yield hybrid juxtapositions of high and low culture. Best known for intricately constructed works featuring beadlike dots of paint, elephant dung, and images culled from popular media, Ofili's unique lexicon combines African culture, Western art history, and hip-hop music, spanning a wide variety of sources which include the Bible, Zimbabwean cave paintings, Blaxploitation films, and William Blake's poems. Animated by exotic characters, outlandish landscapes, and folkloric myths, Ofili's most recent work resonates with references to the paintings of Henri Matisse and Paul Gauguin. This compelling new book offers a fresh perspective on the artist's vital practice, which both celebrates and calls into question the power of images and their ability to address fundamental questions of representation"--
Experience by Carsten Höller( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 198 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
