Mel Bochner : strong language by Norman L Kleeblatt( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mel Bochner (b. 1940) is celebrated as a key Conceptual artist of the 1960s. Less well-known are his paintings made after that period: complex works based on an exploration of language, often crowded with typography in lush, contrasting hues that both embrace and challenge the painterly tradition. Mel Bochner: Strong Language focuses on this important body of work, in which Bochner investigates the lines between text and image. Ranging from bold admonishments and witty emoticons to provocative floods of words, these works demonstrate conceptual seriousness, as well as delight in the playful potential of language. Norman L. Kleeblatt discusses the evolution of Bochner's art from his early word experiments through his return to painting, while Bochner offers a personal perspective. Both Kleeblatt and Bochner address the question of Jewishness in Bochner's work, particularly the ways in which the Jewish intellectual tradition embraces language as a visual expressive form. Exhibition: The Jewish Museum, NYC, USA (2.5.-7.9.2014)

Mel Bochner : language, 1966-2006 by Johanna Burton( Book )

"A leading practitioner of conceptual art, Mel Bochner (b. 1940) was one of the first artists to introduce language into the visual field in the 1960s. Despite their significance, these contributions remain unexplored in art-historical scholarship. Mel Bachner: Language 1966-2006 includes over sixty works in a wide range of media and brings together for the first time an overview of the artist's language-based works from the past forty years."--Jacket

Vers le visible : exposer le dessin contemporain : 1964-1980( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre revient sur un moment crucial de l'histoire récente des expositions par le biais du dessin. Il s'est imposé comme une recherche nécessaire, alors même que ce médium fait aujourd'hui preuve d'une ubiquité inédite, jusqu'à devenir l'un des plus fréquemment montrés dans les espaces dédiés à l'art contemporain. Alors même qu'on le surprend tantôt à emprunter son format à la peinture d'histoire, tantôt son esthétique à la photographie, tantôt ses dispositifs aux grandes installations. Alors même qu'ainsi, sa distinction légendaire d'avec les autres formes d'art tend à disparaître ou à se faire oublier, et qu'il est aujourd'hui regardé et exposé au même rang que les autres œuvres. À quel moment le statut du dessin a-t-il changé aux yeux des commissaires d'exposition et pour quelle(s) raison(s)? Depuis quand le considère-t-on comme un objet de l'art contemporain au même titre que les autres? Comment ce médium, enfin, est-il devenu le vecteur d'un propos curatorial généralisé en Europe et aux États-Unis? En portant son attention sur l'histoire des expositions de dessin et plus largement du papier (documents, plans, notes d'intention, etc.), ce livre tente de cerner les étapes ayant conduit à légitimer des œuvres jusqu'ici rarement mises sur le devant de la scène

Une traduction d'une langue en une autre : [long distance communication]( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une traduction d'une langue en une autre témoigne d'un processus de recherche sur les phénomènes de traduction dans les arts. Articulant des œuvres à des textes théoriques et historiques qui dialoguent et s'interprètent mutuellement, l'ouvrage explore différentes pistes d'analyses des phénomènes de traduction : traductions d'une langue vers une autre, traductions d'oeuvres par leurs contextes de réception, traductions d'un médium vers un autre, traductions d'expositions en publications, de situations en textes ou en images. Ce livre témoigne également d'un champ de réflexions qui engage plus généralement à prendre la mesure de ce qu'implique esthétiquement et politiquement l'interprétation des oeuvres
