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 336 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."--BOOK JACKET
Exhibiting experimental art in China by Wu Hung( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 302 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 ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 299 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 284 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
