Revolution of the eye : modern art and the birth of American television by Maurice Berger( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aesthetics and concepts of modern art have influenced American television ever since its inception in the 1930s. In return, early television introduced the public to the latest trends in art and design. This engaging catalogue comprehensively examines the way avant-garde art shaped the look and content of network television in its formative years, from the 1940s through the mid-1970s. It also addresses the larger cultural and social context of television. Artists, fascinated with the new medium and its technological possibilities, contributed to network programs and design campaigns, appeared on television to promote modern art, and explored, critiqued, or absorbed the new medium in their work. More than 150 illustrations reveal both sides of the dialogue between high art and television through a selection of graphic designs, ephemera, and stills from important television programs--from The Twilight Zone to Batman to Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, and more--as well as works by artists including Salvador Dalí, Lee Friedlander, Agnes Martin, Man Ray, Andy Warhol, and many others. Revolution of the Eye uncovers the cultural history of a medium whose powerful influence on our lives remains pervasive."--Publisher description
The art of Mu Xin : landscape paintings and prison notes by Xin Mu( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mu Xin (b. 1927) is one of the leading artist-intellectuals of the Chinese diaspora. Now living in New York City, he is known for his complex writings and paintings. A formidable figure in the cultural and intellectual history of Chinese modernism, Mu Xin is admired for his unique synthesis of Chinese and Western aesthetic sensibilities and intellectual traditions. This beautifully illustrated catalogue focuses on a group of thirty-three landscape paintings that Mu Xin painted between 1977 and 1979, in the immediate aftermath of the Cultural Revolution. Many of these works have never been exhibited or published in the West. In addition, the book features Mu Xin's Prison Notes, sixty-six sheets that were written when the artist was in solitary confinement in China in 1971-72."--BOOK JACKET
Pious journeys : Christian devotional art and practice in the later Middle Ages and Renaissance by Linda Seidel( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The darker side of light : arts of privacy, 1850-1900 by Peter W Parshall( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For many today, the art of the late nineteenth century is equated with impressionism and post-impressionism. This book with its insightful essays and remarkable works of art presents us with an alternative account of the period." "For collectors the experience of prints, drawings, and small sculptures was often a private affair, like taking a book down from the shelf for quiet enjoyment. Prints and drawings were kept aside, compiled in albums and portfolios, while medals and bronzes were often placed in the seclusion of the library. In short, such works of art were not typically a part of one's day-to-day environment in the manner of a framed object hung on a wall. Rather, they were subject to purposeful study on chosen occasions. From the beginning this element of discreteness allowed for degrees of experiment, leading artists to some times recherche, sometimes enigmatic, and often melancholy subjects that indulged the solitary circumstances of their reception." "By explicating a range of highly engaging, often mysterious and beautiful objects, The Darker Side of Light evokes the shadowed interiors and private introspections that compose a far less familiar history of late nineteenth century art."--Jacket
From blast to pop : aspects of modern British art, 1915-1965 by Richard A Born( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exhibiting experimental art in China by Wu Hung( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his new book, Wu Hung raises timely questions about artistic freedom and censorship. Here, as in the Smart Museum's exhibition Canceled: Exhibiting Experimental Art in China, Wu uses the government's cancellation of the exhibition It's Me (Beijing, 1998) to anchor his analysis of the challenges faced by contemporary Chinese artists and curators." "During this time of rapid change in mainland China, artists and curators are seeking new ways to show work, and finding new allies, patrons and audiences. They are investigating ways to respond to official antagonism, to realize the potential of experimental art in the public sphere, and to maintain the independence of this art in an increasingly commercialized society. Wu addresses these issues through a survey of current exhibition practices, a discussion of the Smart Museum exhibition, a case study of It's Me, a rich collection of primary materials from eleven recent exhibitions. By introducing readers to the complex milieu of experimental artists and curators in China, Wu makes a major contribution to the growing scholarship on contemporary Chinese culture."--Jacket
Beyond green : toward a sustainable art by Stephanie Smith( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The term "sustainability" can be defined simply as the ability to meet our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to satisfy theirs. Balancing environmental, social, economic, and aesthetic concerns, sustainability has spread from the field of contemporary design into the arena of contemporary art. Beyond Green ventures into this fertile new zone, spurred by an international group of visual artists who embrace sustainable design in both theory and practice." "The works and ideas explored in Beyond Green propose cross-disciplinary agendas and renewed activism, combining a fresh visual sensibility with a constructively critical approach to the production, dissemination, and display of art. With essays by curator Stephanie Smith, art historian and theorist Victor Margolin, and texts by over 20 artists, this book and the traveling exhibition it accompanies constitute the first foray into a new area of contemporary art."--Jacket

The German print portfolio, 1890-1930 : serials for a private sphere by Robin Reisenfeld( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite its importance among Symbolist, Naturalist, Expressionist, and New-Objectivity printmakers in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Germany and Austria, the print portfolio as an art form has never been examined comprehensively in an English-language publication. Its seminal role in defining a new audience for German and Austrian art beginning in the 1890s; its status as a hedge against the rising economic and political turmoil of the 1920s; its value as a reflection of personal and public, economic, social and political concerns; and even its roots in high and low culture make the investigation of this unique graphic format both necessary and exciting. The German Print Portfolio 1890-1930: Serials for a Private Sphere examines the central role played by the portfolio in German and Austrian graphics through the rich examples in the collection of the David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art and the Marcia and Granvil Specks Collection. Two Naturalist series by Lovis Corinth, Expressionist examples by artists of Brücke as well as by Ernst Barlach, Max Beckmann, and Oskar Kokoschka, and New-Objectivity and Realist works by Otto Dix, George Grosz, and the Berlin social critic Rafaello Busoni document the diverse stylistic paths this new trend followed. From Klinger's Eine Liebe (A Love) to Barlach's Schiller, An die Freude (Schiller, Ode to Joy) and again to Kokoschka's Der gefesselte Kolumbus (Columbus Chained), the group of portfolios represents a wide range of print techniques. In addition to a discussion of media and artistic choice, the essays examine the uses and themes of portfolios, from direct political, social, or economic commentary to literary, and even musical allusions."--Publisher description
