Rudolf Stingel by Rudolf Stingel( Book )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Celebrated for his explorations of the process of painting and the "idea" of painting, Rudolf Stingel (b. 1956) combines minimalist, conceptual, and performative practices to create unexpected spaces. This highly anticipated book is the premier critical survey of Stingel's career to date." "Employing a wide range of materials, Stingel reflects upon fundamental questions facing painting today: authenticity, meaning, hierarchy, and context. By transforming the materiality, process, and perception of paintings, Stingel's work alters the viewer's perception of and physical encounter with the artwork and invites the viewer to participate or collaborate in a new and deeper understanding and appreciation of art." "His full range of work, including his recent portraits and self-portraits, is represented in this handsome volume. With important contributions by Whitney curator Chrissie Iles and Reiner Zettl, Rudolf Stingel is the first book to examine the broader implications of the artist's creative practice in contemporary society."--Jacket

Universal experience : art, life, and the tourist's eye( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tourism, the largest industry in the world, is a significant force in contemporary society, with far-reaching economic, cultural, and geopolitical importance. Rather than seeking to represent tourism or travel itself, Universal Experience: Art, Life, and the Tourist's Eye considers art, history, and the social construction of places, spaces, and identities from the heightened perception of the tourist. Functioning as a guide book, a reader, and a souvenir, this lavish catalogue of the exhibition presents over 275 illustrations of thought-provoking artworks as icons and as tourist sites for exploration. A wide-ranging anthology of texts presents divergent routes and avenues through which to explore the symbols and cultural conventions created, deciphered, and disseminated by an increasingly mobile, international group of artists."--BOOK JACKET

Damien Hirst : relics by Damien Hirst( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A groundbreaking work, this catalog accompanies the largest exhibition ever realized on Damien Hirst, surveying the oeuvres of the highly acclaimed British artist. Published on the occasion of Relics, Hirst's first retrospective exhibition in Doha, Qatar, this richly illustrated book offers a different perspective on the work of one of the best-known artists working today. Tracing Hirst's career from his emergence on the art scene in the Young British Artists movement to his present status as one of the most controversial and highly regarded artists of his generation, this volume offers a complete overview on his wide-ranging practice, which includes installation, painting, sculpture, and drawing and challenges the boundaries between art, science, and popular culture. The catalog gathers over one hundred works, combining historic oeuvres with more recent projects: from The Kingdom to The History of Pain, from Pharmacy to For the Love of God, to the spot, spin, and butterfly paintings. With an essay by Francesco Bonami, an interview with the artist by Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate Britain, and essays by the Qatari writer Sophia Al Maria and the Pakistani writer Mohsin Hamid, the volume offers an original point of view on Hirst's oeuvre, whose works have become collective icons of our civilization", viewed December 12, 2013
Doug Aitken : 100 yrs by Doug Aitken( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most comprehensive book to date on the innovative multimedia artist Doug Aitken. Defying definitions of genre, Doug Aitken has explored every medium, from architecture and film to installations and interventions. While Aitken's work varies in both theme and context, his installations share a common thread in their ability to use technology to evoke meaningful personal reactions from the viewer, encourage audience interaction, and inspire communal gatherings. His films often explore themes of displacement and temporality, and through his keen awareness of motion, sound, and color he creates dreamlike landscapes and the futurist aesthetic for which he has become known. This beautifully designed book features visual essays by the artist and surveys his work in all mediums. The monograph is organized thematically into the four most prevalent ideas connected with his work, inspires thought, and will leave readers examining their own relationship to the world around them
