Most widely held works by Liam Gillick
Anri Sala by Anri Sala( Book )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anri Sala's work is often about obscurity - obscurity of images but also of language and experience - which can render it both vexingly subtle and uncomfortably immediate. Working in a range of media - including video, photography and installation - and having been raised in Tirana, educated in Paris and now settled in Berlin, Anri Sala represents a truly contemporary international vision. They impact of his work - featured at the world's top venues and exhibitions - endorses Sala's conviction that art can transcend cultural references without losing any of its specificity nor, indeed, its power."--Jacket

Industry and intelligence : contemporary art since 1820 by Liam Gillick( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of modern art is often told through aesthetic breakthroughs that sync well with profound cultural and political change. Monet's riotous landscapes, Picasso's fractured forms, Pollock's insolent splatters, Warhol's proliferating soup cans, these examples track with the disruptions of industrialization, fascism, revolution, and war, among other influences. But filtering modern art only through catastrophic events cannot account for the subtle interrogations that inform so many contemporary works. The conceptual artist Liam Gillick writes the holistic genealogy of contemporary art that we need to appreciate its engagement with history, even when it seems apathetic or blind to current events. Rather than focus on dominant works or special cases, Gillick takes a broad view of artistic creation from 1820 to today, underscoring the industry and intelligence of artists as they have responded to incremental developments in science, politics, and technology. The great innovations and dislocations of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries have their place in this timeline, but their traces are alternately amplified and diminished as Gillick moves through artistic reactions to liberalism, mass manufacturing, psychology, nuclear physics, automobiles, and a host of other advances. He intimately ties the origins of contemporary art to the social and technological adjustments of modern life, which artists struggled to incorporate truthfully into their works

Critical essays by Liam Gillick, most of which were originally printed in art magazines or exhibition catalogues. Known for his ingenious reinterpretation of Conceptual and Minimalist art, Liam Gillick has often used language, whether in type on a wall or on a page, as a site of artistic, theoretical, and political intervention. He was active in the largely European 1990s art scene that included Philippe Parreno, Pierre Huyghe, Carsten H. ller, Angela Bulloch, Douglas Gordon, and Rirkrit Tiravanija. The book also examines the recently renewed interest in Felix Gonzalez-Torres, John Baldessari, and Allen Ruppersberg
