Earth matters : land as material and metaphor in the arts of Africa by Karen Milbourne( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Featuring more than 100 extraordinary works of art from 1800 to the present, Earth Matters reveals how African individuals and communities have visually mediated their most poignant relationships with the land--whether it be to earth as a sacred or medicinal material, as something uncovered by mining or claimed by burial, as a surface to be interpreted and turned to for inspiration, or as an environment to be protected. Both internationally recognized and emerging contemporary artists are represented, from the continent and diaspora, including El Anatsui, Ghada Amer, Sammy Baloji, Ingrid Mwangi and William Kentridge. Highlights include a pair of rare Yoruba onile figures, a one-of-a-kind Punu reliquary from Gabon, and 3 bocio figures from the personal collection of legendary French dealer Jacques Kerchache. The text includes statements by contemporary African artists including Wangechi Mutu, Clive van den Berg, Allan de Souza, and George Osodi. National Museum of African Art curator Karen E. Milbourne explores how diverse African concepts of healing, the sacred, identity, memory, history, and environmental sustainability have all been formed in relation to the land in this pioneering scholarly study."--Publisher's website

Rina Banerjee : 2006-2015 by Rina Banerjee( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and French and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Monographie de l'artiste présentant des dessins, des peintures et des sculptures mêlant divers matériaux, créés depuis 2007 et illustrant ses thèmes de prédilection et ses sources d'inspiration. Rina Banerjee a étudié la sculpture. Elle utilise toute une gamme de matériaux et une large palette de techniques. Ses oeuvres sont souvent pour elle l'occasion d'apprendre de nouveaux procédés et d'expérimenter dans son atelier des pratiques qu'elle n'avait jamais explorées auparavant. Elle a ensuite commencé à exposer ses dessins. Puis elle s'est lancée dans une série de moyens formats et de collages sur papier. Plus récemment, elle s'est mise à la peinture, avec une série de compositions à l'acrylique et à l'encre. Mais la sculpture est demeurée centrale. La démarcation entre sculpture traditionnelle et installation est floue, redéfinissant tantôt le ready-made, terme choisi par Duchamp pour décrire la mise à l'écart d'un objet quotidien en vue d'une requalification ultérieure comme objet d'art. les ready-mades de Rina Banerjee sont les éléments factices dont elle se sert pour réaliser ses sculptures. parapluies, saris rétro, poupées, céramiques, cornes d'animaux, perles de verre et de cuivre, plumes et piquants, porcelaines, calebasses, éventails, meubles anciens, breloques, etc., qui sont sa matière première et ses moyens d'action. Ces constructions semblent faire partie d'un discours plus vaste, que beaucoup rattachent à la théorie postcoloniale (on y trouve en effet beaucoup d'objets d'époque coloniale et victorienne). Dans les sculptures plus récentes, elle opte pour des compositions plus petites, plus contenues. Ces citations deviennent autonomes, à la manière de totems arrachés à un ensemble plus vaste. cela montre bien l'intérêt de l'artiste pour la postmodernité, dans laquelle l'accumulation de biens nouveaux fait partie du schéma économique. L'économie postmoderne est coercitive : elle repose en totalité sur un travail non-payé, sous-payé et effectué par des enfants

Wangechi Mutu : a fantastic journey by Wangechi Mutu( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This richly illustrated full-color catalog accompanies the first major solo museum exhibition and most comprehensive survey of the artist Wangechi Mutu's work, on view at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University from March 21, 2013, through July 21, 2013, before traveling to the Brooklyn Museum. Born in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1972, and now based in Brooklyn, Mutu renders the complex global sensibility of the early twenty-first century through a distinctly hybrid aesthetic. She combines found materials and magazine cutouts with sculpture and painted imagery, sampling from sources and phenomena as diverse as African traditions, international politics, the fashion industry, and science fiction. In her work, Mutu marries poetic symbolism with sociopolitical critique to explore issues of gender, race, war, colonialism, and, particularly, the exoticization of the black female body. The many images included in Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey highlight the most important and iconic works that Mutu has created since the mid-1990s, as well as portray new collages, drawings, videos, and site-specific installations. The catalog also offers an intimate look into her sketchbooks and includes an interview with the artist conducted by the exhibition's curator, Trevor Schoonmaker. Essays by Schoonmaker, the art historian Kristine Stiles, and the critic, musician, and producer Greg Tate are paired with an illustrated chronology of Mutu's work."--Publisher's website
