Lee Bontecou : a retrospective by Lee Bontecou( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the leading figures in late twentieth-century art, Lee Bontecou (b. 1931) became widely known for her sculptures in welded steel and canvas, as well as epoxy and plastic, from the 1960s and 1970s. These powerful and original objects, which have been both critically acclaimed and actively collected, incorporate a variety of figurative, organic, and mechanistic references, suggesting states of transformation between the natural and the man-made, order and chaos, delicacy and ferocity." "This monograph presents reproductions of more than fifty sculptures and one hundred drawings, including her celebrated early works as well as later pieces that are little known and have never been publicly exhibited or published. Along with original essays by Elizabeth A.T. Smith, Robert Storr, Mona Hadler, and Donna De Salvo, this volume also includes a reprint of Donald Judd's influential 1965 Arts Magazine article on Bontecou."--Jacket

Lawrence Weiner : as far as the eye can see by Lawrence Weiner( Book )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lawrence Weiner (b. 1942) is one of the primary figures associated with the emergence of conceptual art in the 1960s. For over four decades, Weiner has defined art as a representation of relationships in the physical world, 'the relationship of human beings to objects and objects to objects in relation to human beings'. This highly anticipated publication represents the full range of Weiner's practice, from the early 1960s to the present, from his early paintings to his work in language, including works on paper, films, videos, books, and public commissions. Weiner adopted language as his primary material in 1968. According to his landmark "Statement of Intent", an oft-quoted declaration first published in 1969, each work can be constructed by the artist, fabricated by someone else, or need not be built at all and simply presented in language. Weiner's work is often manifested outside the gallery context, through postcards, billboards, lectures, or even on a series of cast-iron manhole covers for the city of New York. This substantial publication, produced in conjunction with the artist's first major retrospective in the United States and in close collaboration with the artist, constitutes Weiner's largest monograph to date and brings together five esteemed scholars along with Turner Prize finalist Liam Gillick to examine the artist's impact on the art world today

Face value : American portraits by Donna M De Salvo( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""What is a portrait today?" is the defining question of this volume. Essays by such leading scholars and critics as Maurice Berger, Kenneth E. Silver, Max Kozloff, and Michele Wallace propose fascinating answers, framing portraiture through its age-old kinship with status and wealth; its employ in fashion, politics, and advertising; and its current association with issues of identity. The catalogue also explores the seemingly quixotic rebirth of studied portraiture in an age of instant image-making; the philosophical difficulties inherent in capturing individual 'essence'; and why portraits of individuals have such cachet in mass-audience advertising."--Jacket
Ray Johnson : correspondences by Ray Johnson( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, Jasper Johns, and later Andy Warhol and Jim Rosenquist, Johnson combined the signs and symbols of contemporary culture with the lessons of abstraction to develop a new lexicon of forms. A pioneer in the use of 'found' images and techniques of mechanical reproduction, Johnson created in 1955 what may have been the first informal happening. Johnson first created 'mail art' in the fifties. These were part collage, part manifesto, part parody; he often instructed recipients to 'add to', 'return to', or 'send to', spawning an interactive art form, a continuous happening, that pre-figured electronic mail. Johnson was the nerve center of this pre-digital netscape that spread around the nation and, eventually, the world, which continues to flourish today. By the eighties, Johnson was a legend in the artistic community. Ray Johnson: correspondences, offers the first opportunity for in-depth examination of the work of an artist who reflected and dissected many of the aesthetic, cultural, and theoretical preoccupations of the last forty years; a figure whose impact and influence will finally be made known

Gary Kuehn : five decades by Dorothea Zwirner( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gary Kuehn became known in the sixties for his sculptures, which evolve in the field of tension between Minimalism and Abstract Expressionism. Since then Kuehn has developed an extensive oeuvre between these two intriguing poles. Careful craftsmanship and a sense of material presence distinguish his works, which always have a metaphorical and a psychological dimension as well. For several years now, Kuehn-who has been known to an international audience since his participation in documenta 6 in 1976-has been working on a comprehensive documentation of his body of work. This publication presents some of his best works, selected by Kuehn himself, systematically and chronologically categorized according to individual groups. An essay by Dorothea Zwirner and an interview with the artist by Donna De Salvo shed light on Kuehn's artistic development
