Abstract America by Saatchi Gallery( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A radical new generation of American abstract painters has emerged in the twenty-first century. Whereas their predecessors advanced abstraction in the shadow of the Cold War, this new generation arose at the cusp of the transition to the digital era and is marked by the traumatic events surrounding 9/11 and its ongoing social and political aftermath."--Global Books in Print
Shape of things to come : new sculpture by Saatchi Gallery( Book )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book - the largest on contemporary sculpture yet to appear - is itself an object. The sequence of nearly 700 pages creates, as its title, suggests, an artistic vision of the future. The novel by H.G. Wells, to which the title refers, envisioned events up to the twenty-second century and served both as a surprisingly accurate prophecy and a reflection of the author's own time. The book was a touchstone for Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece, the film 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), in which a great monolith stands as an iconic but enigmatic sculptured presence. This new book opens with an enormous standing monolithic styrofoam sculpture of a video cassette of 2001." "Unlike other contemporary art, the work of sculpture never simply represents a concept or a metaphor. It is an object, Meghan Daily describes in her introduction how the objects presented here are derived from every conceivable material and vary from abstract arrangements to re-configurations of everyday forms in magnificent transformation of the mundane, such as giant electric sockets, and ultimately to the recurring theme of the human body. Though the objects are laid out like mysterious archaeological artifacts, they suggest traces of future worlds as much as they reflect the weird substance of the present. They are presented as if the reader was, in fact, a visitor from another planet and the objects here displayed constitute the monumental evidence of our lives."--Jacket

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The revolution continues : new art from China by Saatchi Gallery( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Revolution Continues provides the first link between the rebellious spirit of the current generation of Chinese artists and the mood of rebellion that was so evident during the years of the Cultural Revolution from 1966 to the death of Mao and the fall of the Gang of Four in 1976." "This extensive survey of new Chinese art is presented in conjunction with Jiang Jiehong's examination of the use of the color red, the iconography of Mao, the sense of the collective, and the use of language in texts that derive from the calligraphy of the propaganda poster. The Revolution Continues is the definitive introduction to a vital new art as it emerges from years of turmoil and diffidence. Among the major contemporary artists whose work is featured here are Zhang Xiaogang, Yue Minjun, Wang Guangyi, and Shen Shaomin. Published on the eve of the opening of the Saatchi Gallery's new exhibition space in London's Chelsea, this is not only the seminal book on the subject of recent Chinese art, but also the first book to bring contemporary Chinese art into focus."--Jacket
Unveiled : new art from the Middle East by Lisa Farjam( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and Multiple languages and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This lavish volume, published to accompany an exhibition at London's new Saatchi Gallery, is a striking collection of contemporary art from the Middle East. As Lisa Farjam, founder of Bidoun magazine, writes in her introduction, "The Middle East today is routinely viewed through the all-too-predictable prism of strife, oppression and terrorism, which obscures a great deal." With works gathered from artists of Middle Eastern origin living all over the world, Unveiled reveals a region of dizzying complexity and energy, characterized by diverse cultural, historical and political influences that stretch back centuries. Diana Al-Hadid, Ahmed Alsoudani, Nadia Ayari, Ramin and Rokni Haerizadeh, Barbad Golshiri and Shadi Ghadirian are just a few of the artists whose work is represented in these vibrant, stunning pages."--Publisher description

The empire strikes back : Indian art today( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Indian art has gone through a boom period in parallel with the extraordinary economic rise of the subcontinent from an agrarian state to a high tech axis of the new global economy. With new money came a new gallery system. With bigger spaces came bigger art and the sheer scale of ambition led to a break into the international market, which is always keen to find a new spectacular presence in the art world. The new art has also been created against a background of communal tension and violence. The exploration of identity, a common enterprise for artists internationally, is all the more challenging in the context of India under transformation."--Saatchi Gallery website

Germania by Mark Holborn( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The very title Germania suggests an empire of ruin, a dream of Albert Speer, or the land of some barbaric tribe, suitable for taming. It carries an historical echo. The postwar generation of German artists who had lived through the nation's recovery from defeat -- Anselm Kiefer, George Baselitz and Martin Kippenberger -- have now given way to a generation who have experienced the consequences of the reunification of 1989. The capital of Germania is Berlin, but its frontiers extend to Leipzig and Dresden, former cities of the East. Germany exists within the European Union, but Germania stretches past political frontiers. The reinvention of history is one of the characteristics of the new art and the new generation. The happenings of the past can be re-enacted. The ghosts of Brecht or Dada can be reinvigorated. But the medium of the Internet provides a different platform to that afforded by artistic predecessors. 'The new generation of Germania', writes Max Henry in his introduction, 'can discard the chronology of their influences. They can incorporate sound and music, self-publish their theoretical literature, display archival ephemera, curate and collaborate, and ultimately seize all available means to propagate their view.' Such opportunities have stimulated the emergence of the most vibrant artistic language. Film, theatre, television, collage and kitsch provide the raw influences, but at the centre of Germania lies a core of expressionist painting, embodied in the dense surfaces of André Butzer. Out of this seeming chaos Germania leaves anarchic traces. These are the signs of life embedded at the heart of this stark empire. Germania is a further title in the series Jonathan Cape is publishing in conjunction with the exhibition programme of the new Saatchi Gallery in London
