"The broad focus of the book is the complex relationship between innovation and tradition and the profound impact of technology on architecture and urbanism throughout the twentieth century.

In memory of my feelings : Frank O'Hara and American art by Russell Ferguson( Book )
9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Not only was Frank O'Hara (1926-1966) one of the most important American poets of his generation, he was also intimately involved with the art world of the 1950s and 1960s, a time when New York had become the cultural capital of the world. As an associate curator at the Museum of Modern Art, O'Hara organized a series of important exhibitions, notably the work of Franz Kline and of Robert Motherwell. In Memory of My Feelings: Frank O'Hara and American Art explores this key period in modern art by presenting artists who were associated with O'Hara and whose seminal works are reflected in his poetry." "Featuring over 80 works by twenty-three artists, the book focuses on works closely tied to specific poems by Frank O'Hara, notably Jasper Johns's In Memory of My Feelings - Frank O'Hara and Grace Hartigan's Oranges. Included here are direct collaborations between O'Hara and various artists such as Joe Brainard, Norman Bluhm, and Larry Rivers, as well as portraits of the poet by Elaine de Kooning and Alex Katz. Franz Kline, Alice Neel, and Joan Mitchell are some of the other artists highlighted." "The book is a re-examination of the relationship between art and poetry at this crucial moment in American art. It also offers new insights into the charismatic figure of Frank O'Hara and his world."--BOOK JACKET

Urban revisions : current projects for the public realm by Russell Ferguson( Book )
9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Francis Alÿs by Cuauhtémoc Medina( Book )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the Interview, Russell Ferguson asks how the artist's identity as a cultural outsider has helped determine the path of his art over the years. Cuauhtemoc Medina's Survey identifies the threads that run through the artist's oeuvre while also sketching a political and social picture of Mexico City, the inspiration and setting for so many of his artworks. In the Focus, Jean Fisher examines the political heart of Alys's massive collaborative land art project When Faith Moves Mountains (2002). In the Artist's Choice, Augusto Monterroso's short tales capture the artist's enduring fascination with the role animals and fables play in human society, while Alys's own writings uncover the poetry in everyday phrases and seemingly spontaneous arrangements of urban life."--BOOK JACKET
Damage control : art and destruction since 1950 by Kerry Brougher( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 278 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
