Tate Modern : the handbook by Tate Modern (Gallery) ( Book )
15 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and German and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book celebrates the opening of Tate Modern, London, and introduces readers to the building, the collection, and the new approach to modern and contemporary art. The gallery presents the twentieth century through the reinterpretation of four classic themes: the nude, landscape, still-life, and history painting. Their re-emergence in modern art as the body, the environment, the everyday, and society, is discussed in four introductory texts and through selected writings. The second half of the book is an A to Z of one hundred key artists in the Tate's international modern collection that are introduced by a team of eleven art historians."--Page 4 de la couverture

Ilya Kabakov by Boris Groĭs ( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"After spending some thirty years as an 'unofficial' artist behind the Iron Curtain of the former Soviet Union, Ilya Kabakov first came to the attention of the West in the 1980s. Today Kabakov is recognized as the most important Russian artist to have emerged in the late 20th century, with installations that speak as much about conditions in post-Stalinist Russia as they do about the human condition universally. His installations are, in some instances, akin to theatrical mise-en-scenes, reproducing a cramped communal apartment or a flooded art museum as a site of Schadenfreude-like comedies on human frustration and doomed aspirations. Alternating between light-hearted irony and genuine tragedy, Kabakov evokes a shadowy world lit by a twenty-watt bulb in which fable-like miracles might occur: a homespun cosmonaut may fly into space, or the radio/television aerial may spell out a poem against the sky. Ilya Kabakov's work has featured in the world's most significant surveys of contemporary art, among them Documenta IX (Kassel, Germany, 1992), and the Whitney Biennial (New York, 1997). In 1993 Kabakov represented Russia at the 45th Venice Biennale."--BOOK JACKET

Cornelia Parker by Cornelia Parker ( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
ART STYLES: C 1960 -. Cornelia Parker is one of the most thoughtful and profound artists working in Britain today. Exploring everything from ghosts and gravity to relics and the unconscious, she transforms everyday, ordinary objects into compelling works of art. Parkers projects which have included blowing up a shed, steamrolling musical instruments, exploding a firework made from a pulverised meteorite, and suspending charcoal taken from a church struck by lightning have captured the public imagination since she first came to prominence in the 1990s. This monograph, now available in paperback, traces the development of her art from the late 1970s to the present day. Organised chronologically to show the development of her thinking and practice, the book also features five thematic essays by curator and writer Iwona Blazwick. Over 175 works are illustrated, each accompanied by a commentary from the artist herself
