Most widely held works by Kerry Brougher
Visual music : synaesthesia in art and music since 1900 by Calif.) Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles( Book )

24 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new book and the exhibition it accompanies trace the history of a revolutionary idea: that fine art should attain the abstract purity of music. Over the past one hundred years adventurous modern and contemporary artists have explored unorthodox means to invent a kinetic, nonrepresentational art modeled upon pure instrumental music." "Music has inspired some of the most progressive art of our time - from the abstract painting of Wassily Kandinsky and Frantisek Kupka to the mid-century experimental films of Oskar Fischinger and Harry Smith to the contemporary installations of Jennifer Steinkamp and Jim Hodges. While early abstract paintings tended to approach music metonymically, the color organs, films, light shows, and installations from the mid-twentieth century to the present day engage a range of perceptual faculties simultaneously to create a plethora of sensations in the viewer." "The most complete examination of this phenomenon to date, Visual Music features ninety major works of art plus related documentation, focusing on abstract and mixed-media art forms and their connections to musical forms as varied as classical, jazz, and electronica. The book includes an introduction by Jeremy Strick; three scholarly essays, each discussing a distinct art-historical period in depth; and an additional essay by Olivia Mattis that approaches the subject from a musicologist's perspective, as well as a chronology, artist biographies, and a selected bibliography."--Jacket
Ed Ruscha by Neal David Benezra( Book )

23 editions published in 2000 in English and Dutch and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most consistently inventive artists of recent times, Los Angeles-based Ed Ruscha has been a pioneer in the use of language and imagery drawn from the popular media. From his early powerful word paintings to his influential artist books of the sixties and seventies to his recent colorful views of generic mountains, Ruscha has investigated the spaces between highways and journeys, images and words, abstraction and representation, public imagery and the contemporary landscape. In this publication, which accompanies a major retrospective exhibition organized by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. and the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, Neal Benezra, Kerry Brougher, and Phyllis Rosenzweig focus on all aspects of Ruscha's career, revealing him not merely as an artist closely linked with Los Angeles, but as an important international figure in contemporary art."--Amazon
Art and film since 1945 : Hall of mirrors by Kerry Brougher( Book )

21 editions published in 1996 in English and German and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art and Film Since 1945: Hall of Mirrors explores the complex and profound relationship between cinema and the visual arts in the postwar era. It examines how art has shifted toward film, how film has been influenced by art, and how the two have fused into new forms of artistic expression. Published in conjunction with a major exhibition organized by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Art and Film features work by more than one hundred of the century's most remarkable filmmakers and artists, such as Joseph Cornell, Alfred Hitchcock, Akira Kurosawa, Jean-Luc Godard, Michelangelo Antonioni, Richard Hamilton, Diane Arbus, Andy Warhol, Raul Ruiz, John Baldessari, Cindy Sherman, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Stan Douglas. The book's seven essays range widely over themes including Hollywood glamour and stardom, the experimental cinema of the sixties, the influence of psychoanalytic and feminist film theory on art, nostalgia for cinema's golden age, and presentiments of its fragmentation and death. The dialogue between art and film returns frequently to cinema's origins, splintering and re-arranging into new, self-reflexive experiences that highlight and subvert film practice
Hiroshi Sugimoto by Kerry Brougher( Book )

20 editions published in 2005 in 3 languages and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hiroshi Sugimoto is one of the most significant Japanese contemporary artists to have emerged in the last 30 years. In his photographic series, as well as his experiments with sculptural objects, architecture and exhibition design, Sugimoto attempts to highlight and expand our perception of such abstract qualities as time, light, space, movement, spirit - and the nature of reality itself. "Hiroshi Sugimoto: End of Time" represents the first chance to survey the artist’s whole photographic work, made from the 1970s until the present. It includes his best-known works, such as the Dioramas, which he photographed, in life-like detail, at natural history and other museums; Seascapes, depicting oceans around the world; Theatres, for which he sets his exposure times to the length of the film showing; and other series: Portraits, Architecture, Sea of Buddha and Conceptual Forms. The exhibition also includes the artist’s most recent experiments: fusions of photography with architecture and traditional Noh theatre. Colors of Shadow, a new series of color photographs of changing light in the artist’s studio, will have its world premiere. The exhibition is designed by Sugimoto and incorporates a Noh stage, on which a Noh play will be performed
Jeff Wall by Kerry Brougher( Book )

30 editions published in 1997 in 3 languages and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jeff Wall is one of the leading international contemporary artists of the nineties. His work consists primarily of large photographic transparencies mounted in lightboxes, drawing on themes from art history, advertising, film, and documentary photography. These are constructed images, making use of sets and actors, which play on several layers of meaning. This book covers the full range of Wall's work and includes previously unseen photographs. Kerry Brougher's essay covers the entire period of development of Wall's work and discusses its relationship to historical and contemporary visual media
Damage control : art and destruction since 1950 by Kerry Brougher( Book )

15 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Timely and wide-ranging, this volume explores in-depth the theme of destruction in international contemporary art. While destruction as a theme can be traced throughout art history, from the early atomic age it has remained a pervasive and compelling element of contemporary visual culture. Damage Control features the work of more than 40 international artists working in a range of media--painting, sculpture, photography, film, installation, and performance--who have used destruction as a means of responding to their historical moment and as a strategy for inciting spectacle and catharsis, as a form of rebellion and protest, or as an essential part of re-creation and restoration. Including works by such diverse artists as Jean Tinguely, Andy Warhol, Bruce Conner, Yoko Ono, Gordon Matta-Clark, Pipilotti Rist, Yoshitomo Nara, and Laurel Nakadate, the book reaches beyond art to enable a broader understanding of culture and society in the aftermath of World War II, under the looming fear of annihilation in the atomic age, and in the age of terrorism and other disasters, real and imagined.--
Yves Klein : with the void, full powers by Yves Klein( Book )

21 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Open city : street photographs since 1950 by Museum of Modern Art (Oxford)( Book )

17 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Open City traces the history and development of street photography, beginning with the striking images made in the 1950s by Robert Frank. Including both historical and contemporary artists, the survey presents significant images ranging from the realist, and sometimes disturbing, work of Garry Winogrand and William Klein, to the contemporary development of the street photograph as reflected in the work of Nikki S. Lee, Beat Streuli and Wolfgang Tillmans. For other artists, such as Jeff Wall and Philip-Lorca diCorcia, the street becomes a theatre for staged events, set up for the camera rather than snatched by the photographer on the run. This substantial book is extensively illustrated and includes texts examining the technical and conceptual development of post-war street photography. With information and biographies on the artists
The cinema effect : illusion, reality, and the moving image by Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden( Book )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers an in-depth exploration of contemporary moving-image art, examining the ways in which "the cinematic" has blurred cultural distinctions between reality and illusion. Cinema was "the" unrivaled art form of the twentieth century; in the art world, the use of film and video and the appropriation of cinematic language and devices for works in a range of media have been growing since the early 1960s. In the realm of popular culture, the influence of this technology and its vocabulary have grown to the point where the boundaries between "real life" and make-believe are at the least blurred and at most indecipherable.Opening with Kerry Brougher's overview of the cultural, social and psychological issues raised by "The Cinema Effect," the book divides into two parts which reflect the opposing poles of cinema, and the roles they play in art and contemporary culture. The first section, "Dreams," opens with a discussion by Kelly Gordon of how and why moving-image work has shifted from the margins to the center of art production. This essay considers the analogous relationship between cinema technology and the psychology of dreams, as well as the ways in which artists compel or challenge suspension of disbelief. The second section, "Realisms," shifts the focus to the larger societal impact of the pervasiveness of cinema, looking at the work of emerging artists. In this section Anne Ellegood examines issues of subjectivity and identity in the featured artists' work and Kristen Hileman explores the complex issue of authenticity
American prospects : photographs by Joel Sternfeld( Book )

21 editions published between 1987 and 2006 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1987 to widespread critical acclaim and hailed by People magazine as one of the ten best books of the 1980s, Joel Sternfeld's startling visual chronicle is at once funny and despairing, calmly beautiful and grim. Sternfeld may be America's greatest fineart color photographer, and here his luxuriant landscapes are full of sly surprises and deadpan wit: a renegade elephant lies exhausted on a road; beached whales daintily punctuate a majestic seascape; a fireman buys pumpkins while a house burns behind him. Now published in an exquisite paper-bound edition with a new preface, these pictures carry even more weight than when they were first seen; they have the poignancy and resonance of an America uneasy about its past and uncertain of its future

Doug Aitken : 100 yrs by Doug Aitken( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most comprehensive book to date on the innovative multimedia artist Doug Aitken. Defying definitions of genre, Doug Aitken has explored every medium, from architecture and film to installations and interventions. While Aitken's work varies in both theme and context, his installations share a common thread in their ability to use technology to evoke meaningful personal reactions from the viewer, encourage audience interaction, and inspire communal gatherings. His films often explore themes of displacement and temporality, and through his keen awareness of motion, sound, and color he creates dreamlike landscapes and the futurist aesthetic for which he has become known. This beautifully designed book features visual essays by the artist and surveys his work in all mediums. The monograph is organized thematically into the four most prevalent ideas connected with his work, inspires thought, and will leave readers examining their own relationship to the world around them

Song 1 by Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continuing a carreer-long interest in architecture, art, and the urban landscape, SONG 1 allows Aitken to explore the interrelationships among these on an unprecedented scale. From his imposition of eyes onto the walls of the Vienna Secession building in 2000 to the eight projections that comprised sleepwalkers at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2007, the artist has helped push the boundaries of moving-imagge art and created works that engage viewers and the world around then in new and intriguing ways."--Director's statement
