Most widely held works by Paul Schimmel
Robert Rauschenberg : combines by Robert Rauschenberg( Book )

26 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With these mixed-media works of art, Rauschenberg reinvented collage, changing it from a medium that presses commonplace materials to serve illusion into something very different: a process that undermines both illusion and the idea that a work of art has a unitary meaning. Appearing as either wall-hung works or as freestanding objects, the combines are composed as syncopated grids that draw on materials from everyday life and the history of art. - Metropolitan Museum of Art. This book focuses on the works created roughly between 1954 and 1964, the most important decade in the artist's 50-year career, and constitutes the most complete survey of the Combines ever presented, as well as the most rigorous analysis of their political, social, autobiographical, and aesthetic significance. An introductory essay by exhibition curator Paul Schimmel titled "Reading Rauschenberg" offers an iconographic analysis of the earlier Combines, based on in-depth conversations with the artist. Other texts help to contextualize the Combines, such as Thomas Crow's essay that calls them the major artistic statement of their time. - Publisher

Public offerings by Paul Schimmel( Book )

21 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Public Offerings presents works by some of the most important and challenging artists to emerge in the past decade, exploring the conditions, consequences and contexts that surround their first 'public offerings'. It provides a critical overview of art at the beginning of the 21st century. Young artists are now among today's most critically discussed and visible practitioners. All the artists featured in this collection graduated from prestigious colleges of art in Britain, the United States, Germany and Japan, and their success has raised the profile of art schools and the issue of their increasingly important role." "While confident in their conception, execution and theatrical vigour, the works included here also represent a fragile moment in the artists' development. The art clearly demonstrates the impact of the particular art school and regional identity. Along with the complex network of travelling critics and curators, international exhibitions, regional and global art journals, and ambitious galleries and collectors, art schools have emerged as important crossroads for recent art's shared themes and discourses, and have served as both incubator and platform for new art. A series of specially commissioned essays examines the art school's role and the relation of an international art world to local practice. Also included are critical texts examining the artist and individual works, accompanied by fi1ll colour reproductions. Among the artists featured are Matthew Barney, Julie Becker, Damien Hirst, Sharon Lockhart, Chris Ofili, Jason Rhoades, Diana Thater, Yutake Sone, Rachel Whiteread, and Jane and Louise Wilson."--Jacket

Revolution in the making : abstract sculpture by women, 1947-2016 by Emily Rothrum( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and Ewondo and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The catalogue accompanies the most comprehensive exhibition of postwar abstract sculpture by women artists. Revolution in the Making traces the ways in which women artists deftly transformed the language of sculpture. The volume seeks to identify the multiple strains of proto-feminist practices, characterized by abstraction and repetition, which rejected the singularity of the masterwork. Divided into four sections, the book will feature approximately thirty artists and nearly 100 works in total: the postwar era (the late 1950s) including such historically important predecessors as Ruth Asawa, Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Claire Falkenstein, and Louise Nevelson; the 1960s and 1970s, highlighting a generation of post-minimalist artists who ignited a revolution in their use of process-oriented materials and methods; the 1980s and 1990s, the period that moved beyond singular, three-dimensional objects toward architectonic works characterized by repetition, structure, and design; and post-2000 works by artists who created installation-based environments, embracing domestic materials and craft as an embedded discourse." -- Publisher's description
