Of his large-scale black-and-white works. This volume traces Kline's art from its beginnings to his last painting in 1961, just a few months before the artist's death. Kline, along with Pollock and Motherwell, was at the center of Abstract Expressionism and "action painting" in the America. This volume demonstrates in the monumental canvases, as well as in his many small-scale sketches made on paper, newspaper, and even telephone book pages, how Kline embraces gesture, experience, and

William Kentridge by William Kentridge( Book )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Kentridge (b. 1955, Johannesburg) has always addressed the more challenging and intimate aspects of contemporary life and of South Africa, both during Apartheid and in the post-Apartheid period. Through his short animated films, his sculptures, installations, charcoal drawings on paper - based on a technique of erasure - as well as through his activities in theater as set designer and director, Kentridge explores the nature of memory and emotions, the ambiguity and complexity of social conflicts in the age of globalization. His art suggests an original perspective which is both elegiac and dramatic, whereby perpetual change, process and transformation are balanced between ethics, responsibility and poetry." "This catalogue accompanies the exhibition organized by the Castello di Rivoli that will travel in 2004 and 2005 to the K20 K21 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen of Dusseldorf, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Sydney, the Musee d'Art Contemporary in Montreal and the Johannesburg Art Gallery in the artist's hometown."--Jacket

The painting of modern life : 1960s to now by Ralph Rugoff( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book re-examines what has been arguably the most influential development in the history of contemporary painting - the use and translation of photographic imagery. Beginning with seminal photo-inspired works from the early 1960s by painters such as Gerhard Richter, Vija Celmins, Andy Warhol and Malcolm Morley, this book charts the international evolution of this trend over the past 45 years. Richly illustrated with over 100 paintings by 22 artists whose work draws upon varied photographic sources - from amateur snapshots to news and magazine pictures - this book explores how the significance and content of an image changes dramatically when it is translated into a different medium."--Jacket
Pierre Huyghe by Pierre Huyghe( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre Huyghe's reputation in the international contemporary art scene is based on installations, films, and collaborative projects that probe our collective imagination. His works tend to generate a sense of instability by imposing unusual strategies of perception on the narrative structures through which it is constructed. They engage the observers, causing their own stock of visual images and individual memories to interact with the artificial memory of the media. The experience often underlines the rift that is produced between the real and its representation, especially in the means of communication used by the entertainment industry. Castello di Rivoli has organized an ambitious Huyghe retrospective and this catalogue-with a special pop up insert-presents all aspects of his oeuvre, including Blance-Neige Lucie, No Ghost Just a Shell, Sleeptalking, and a new work, Float, created for the show. The catalog includes a broad selection of Huyghe's own writings as well as extracts by other contemporary artists and critics, including a major essay by Carolyn Christov-Barkargiev, and a complete bio-bibliography

Miroslav Tichý by Miroslav Tichý( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few stories in the history of photography are as astonishing and as compelling as that of the octogenarian Czech photographer Miroslav Tichý. With crude homemade cameras fashioned out of cardboard and duct tape, Tichý took several thousand pictures of the women of his Moravian hometown of Kyjov throughout the 1960s and '70s. These pictures of women going about their daily business are at once banal and extraordinary, transforming the ordinary moments of work and leisure into small epiphanies. Blurred and off-kilter, his photographs have a striking contemporaneity, resembling the early paintings of Gerhard Richter or the photographs of Sigmar Polke. Printed imperfectly and deliberately battered, they evince a surprising retrograde or even antimodernist feeling, which, in the context of the Cold War atmosphere of provincial Czechoslovakia, just before and after the liberalizing moment of the Prague Spring (1968), undoubtedly constituted a kind of oblique political provocation, a nose-thumbing response to the progressive realist perfectionism of official Soviet culture. The catalogue Miroslav Tichý accompanies an exhibition of the same title at the International Center of Photography organized by Chief Curator Brian Wallis. Critical evaluations by Brian Wallis, Roman Buxbaum, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, and Richard Prince introduce more than 250 plates and illustrations."--Publisher's website

On curating. interviews with fourteen international curators by Carolee Thea( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On Curating 2, Carolee Thea's new volume of interviews with 14 of today's leading curators, explores the lively system of art biennials that is thriving around the world--particularly outside Europe and America. Spawned by their more formal Western predecessors and motivated by the forces of history and politics, the newer incarnations of the biennial often occur in the cities of the postcolonial world and the Global South, as well as in former socialist countries. The new generation of curators who are organizing these surprisingly provocative and experimental exhibitions hail from cities as diverse as Bogotá, Dakar, Havana, Jakarta, Jerusalem, Lagos, Mumbai, Seoul and Zagreb, and they are the subjects of the interviews collected in this book
