"John Boldessari: Pure Beauty, the most comprehensive volume to date on this legendary California artist, features more than 240 illustrations. Eleven insightfuL essays, by critics, curators, art historians, and an artist and former student, illuminate many aspects of Baldessari's oeuvre and provide a context for the artist's extraordinary contribution to twentieth and twenty-first century art. Few contemporary artists have achieved Baldessari's range and relevance and this stunning volume, with its expansive reproductions and substantial text, provides the definitive look at an artist who has engagingly challenged our very ways of seeing."--BOOK JACKET

Rodney Graham : through the forest by Rodney Graham ( Book )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume was designed in collaboration with Rodney Graham and Yves Gevaert in conjunction with an exhibition of around one hundred pieces produced by the Canadian artist between 1978 and 2009. Graham (*1949 in Vancouver) uses a variety of media in these works, including books, video, sculptures, machines, paintings, photographs, installations, prints, and music; takes up key concepts of art history; and plays with problems of perception. His works require viewers to come up with art-historical or theoretical associations. Graham derives his source material from Sigmund Freud, Edgar Allan Poe, Georg Buchner, Jeff Wall, and many others, while at the same time dealing with them in a respectful, yet ironic manner. One extensive group of works is based on the artist's own unconventional library, and offers annotations, appendices, bookmarks, reading compendiums, as well as display furniture making stylistic reference to Donald Judd. This catalogue also features Graham's paintings, which explore the myths surrounding classic modern painters such as Picasso and other masters."--Publisher's website

Cildo Meireles by Cildo Meireles ( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Brazilian artist Cildo Meireles, born in 1948, has made some of the most politically telling and aesthetically seductive works in recent art. An important theme in the Brazilian postwar avant-garde, from which Meireles emerged at the end of the 1960s, was the relationship between the sensual and the cerebral, the body and the mind. Meireles, now acknowledged as a key instigator of international Conceptual art, has remained true to these concerns - and to a political and ethical viewpoint formed outside the cultures of plenty. At the same time, he has become a global artist, making work that deals with issues and experiences that affect us all - whatever our country of origin. Under the repressive military regime of the late 1960s and early 1970s, which controlled the Brazilian media, Meireles found different ways of reaching the public - stamping bank notes with seditious slogans and returning them into circulation, or stenciling Coke bottles with slogans before sending them back to the bottling plant. Other works play with the sense of space or scale, varying in size from that of a finger ring to an installation covering almost 750 square feet. His installations are always designed to heighten the awareness of his audience, sometimes by inducing fear, as in "Volatile" (1980/94), which includes the presence of a naked candle and the smell of natural gas. "Babel" (2001) is a contemporary take on the myth of the tower that confounded the world's languages." "Lavishly illustrated, this volume includes 10 short thematic essays by leading scholars - including Moacir dos Anjos, Guy Brett, Okwui Enwezor, Maaretta Jaukkuri, Bartomeu Mar', Lu Menezes, Suely Rolnik, Stnia Salzstein and Lynn Zelevansky - as well as previously unpublished commentaries on each work by the artist."--BOOK JACKET
