Buyways : billboards, automobiles, and the American landscape by Catherine Gudis( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gudis investigates the cultural implications of the billboards and other outdoor advertising on the built and natural environments, and people's experience of these basic facts of daily life. Pivoting on the themes of production, distribution, and consumption, she describes producing a landscape of signs, decentralization and the birth of the strip, and the business of highway beautification. The historical record, she notes, is heavily weighted toward big outdoor advertising companies and their most strident opponents, and it is difficult to know the range of what ordinary people thought of the ads or how their viewing affected their actions

Cultures of commerce : representation and American business culture, 1877-1960( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aims to contribute to the scholarship occurring at the intersection of business history and the study of cultural forms, ranging from material to visual culture to literature. While both the structural changes in American business and their impact on workers have been explored in depth by historians, the broader impact of business on other cultural forms, and vice versa, is only now beginning to be studied. This anthology contributes to the new scholarship occurring at the intersection of business history and the study of cultural forms, ranging from material to visual culture to literature
Ray Johnson : correspondences by Ray Johnson( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, Jasper Johns, and later Andy Warhol and Jim Rosenquist, Johnson combined the signs and symbols of contemporary culture with the lessons of abstraction to develop a new lexicon of forms. A pioneer in the use of 'found' images and techniques of mechanical reproduction, Johnson created in 1955 what may have been the first informal happening. Johnson first created 'mail art' in the fifties. These were part collage, part manifesto, part parody; he often instructed recipients to 'add to', 'return to', or 'send to', spawning an interactive art form, a continuous happening, that pre-figured electronic mail. Johnson was the nerve center of this pre-digital netscape that spread around the nation and, eventually, the world, which continues to flourish today. By the eighties, Johnson was a legend in the artistic community. Ray Johnson: correspondences, offers the first opportunity for in-depth examination of the work of an artist who reflected and dissected many of the aesthetic, cultural, and theoretical preoccupations of the last forty years; a figure whose impact and influence will finally be made known
