Kazimir Malevich : the climax of disclosure by Rainer Crone( Book )

18 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kasimir Malevich's (1878-1935) sudden and startling realization of a nonrepresentational way of painting, which he called Suprematism, stands as a seminal moment in twentieth-century art. Rainer Crone and David Moos trace the artist's development from his beginnings in the Ukraine to his involvement with Futurist circles in Moscow through to the late 1920s and beyond. They convincingly demonstrate that Malevich's late representational painting, still widely misunderstood, solidifies his extraordinarily inventive stance. Against the historical background of distinctly Russian progressive cultural and scientific movements, the authors define affinities between Malevich's work and other nonpolitical revolutions: relativity and quantum theory in physics the work of Roman Jakobson and the "Prague School" in linguistics and the exploration of language in the writings of the poet Velimir Khlebnikov. They situate the artist within the fundamental epistemological shift from nineteenth-century objectivity to an all-pervasive modernist subjectivity, relying upon Malevich's contribution to illustrate the ways cultural production is mediated through various modes of transmission. Rainer Crone holds the Chair for Twentieth Century Art at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universita╠ł ;t, Munich, and is adjunct professor of art history at Columbia University. David Moos is a doctoral candidate in art history at Columbia University

Samuel Mockbee and the Rural Studio : community architecture by David Moos( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The architect and teacher Samuel Mockbee, founder of Auburn University's Rural Studio, was an idealist who put into action one of the boldest programs in contemporary architecture. Mockbee led his students in the design and construction of homes, community centers and other essential structures in Hale County, Alabama--one of the poorest counties in the United States. Mockbee believed that architecture could play a determining role in combating the brutalities of poverty. He inspired students to create vanguard designs and utilize an array of innovative, cost-effective building materials that included scraps of carpet baled into rectangular building blocks. This combination of ingenuity and enterprise informed the unique character of Mockbee's undertaking. Samuel Mockbee and the Rural Studio appraises Mockbee's unique contribution, assessing how he believed that architecture, practiced as a community-oriented undertaking, could transform the social environment

Alex Katz : seeing, drawing, making by Alex Katz( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alex Katz is one of the most influential American painters of the twentieth century. Though he perversely pursued figurative work in the era of Abstract Expressionism, the influence of his stylized portraits of New York's artworld demimonde, as well as his unmistakable Maine landscapes, can now be seen in the work of countless younger artists. This concise and affordable publication, which showcases Katz's work from the Banca della Svizzera Italiana (BSI) collection, contains images from throughout his career. What makes this volume notable is not only the opportunity to consider these rarely seen pieces and commissions, but also the technical and anecdotal commentary that Katz has provided for each work."--BOOK JACKET

Frank Thiel : a Berlin decade 1995-2005 by Frank, Thiel( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and Multiple languages and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frank Thiel's photographs are unique reflections upon the urban landscape of Berlin, that twentieth-century patchwork of architecture and intellect. Thiel, born in 1966 in Kleinmachnow, near Berlin, describes a type of architecture in transition, the formation of a new political space within urban structures, but his real subject matter is the incomplete: he prefers the process of construction over the end result, and persistently pursues the aesthetics of temporality and change. Thiel's photographs seem to refer to a larger narrative context, yet they also explore the relationship of photography to painting and sculpture. Thiel's special ability to inscribe the dialectic relationship between ideology and aesthetics in his photographs also prevents any appearance of sentimentality. This extensive monograph is the first to feature all of Thiel's important photographic series on this theme

Currents( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evan Penny's astounding portraits confront us with new perspectives on the human body. Stretched and compressed to extreme proportions, his figures exist in a space between sculpture and photography. Despite such eccentric distortions, Penny's sculptures maintain a lifelike quality due to the artist's meticulous technique of modeling in clay and casting in silicone. The hyper-real effect is especially uncanny in his "No one in particular" series, which are imaginary portraits of non-existent people. Penny's latest works, envisioned with the aid of computer software, further challenge anatomical and spatial logic. The sensation we experience before his Stretch sculptures underscores our instability in a world transformed by digital technology. As the real and the virtual become increasingly intertwined, Penny's people remind us that our notion of "reality" may now be as variable as our point-of-view
