Robert Gober : the heart Is not a metaphor by Hilton Als( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Gober (born 1954) rose to prominence in the mid-1980s and was quickly acknowledged as one of the most significant artists of his generation. Initially, he made deceptively simple sculptures of everyday objects such as sinks, playpens, beds, and doors. In the 1990s, he began creating theatrical, room-sized environments. His formal intelligence is matched by a penetrating reading of his socio-political context and his objects and installations are among the most psychologically charged artworks of recent decades. Published in conjunction with the first large-scale surveyof Gober's career in the United States and prepared in close collaboration with the artist, this book traces the development of a remarkable oeuvre, highlighting themes and motifs that emerged in the early 1980s and continue to inform Gober's work today

Forrest Bess : seeing things invisible by Forrest Bess( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The eccentric visionary artist Forrest Bess (1911-1977) spent most of his life on the Texas coast working as a commercial fisherman. In his spare time, however, he painted prolifically, creating an extraordinary body of work rich with enigmatic symbolism. Bess experienced hallucinations that both frightened and intrigued him, and he incorporated images from these visions into small-scale abstract paintings starting in the mid-1940s.His canvases attracted an underground following, and between 1949 and 1967, Betty Parsons organized six solo exhibitions of Bess's work at her prominent New York City gallery. Since then, the art world has periodically rediscovered his work, most recently through a 2012 Whitney Biennial installation by American sculptor Robert Gober, which further exposed Bess's psychological, medical, and religious theories. Forrest Bess: Seeing Things Invisible is the artist's first museum retrospective with catalogue in the United States and offers a fresh look at Bess's work and a better understanding of this curious and complicated artist"-- Accompanying the first museum exhibition of the work of Texas artist Forrest Bess (1911-1977) in over twenty years and featuring new analysis and an expansion of sculptor Robert Gober's project for the 2012 Whitney Biennial, this fully-illustrated catalogue provide a fresh look at this compelling but under-recognized artist"--
