Art into ideas : essays on conceptual art by Robert C Morgan( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art into Ideas: Essays on Conceptual Art provides an overview of one of the most important and influential developments in American and European art over the past thirty years. Robert Morgan defines and elucidates the premises of Conceptual Art, focusing on works by a range of international artists, including Joseph Kosuth, Hans Haacke, Sherrie Levine, and Joseph Beuys. He examines its evolution, from its inception in the 1960s through the 1980s, relating the movement to historical and cultural contexts, as well as to important theoretical and critical issues that emerged during these decades. Defining three primary modes of representation that characterize Conceptual Art - the philosophical, the structuralist, and the systemic - Morgan then applies these concepts in analyses of a variety of media, including painting, photography, books, and performance

Mierle Laderman Ukeles sculpture, performance( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The public art of Mierle Laderman Ukeles is designed to make people aware of the services and service workers who keep a city functioning. Her works often use ancient materials such as earth, clay, and tar in combination with refuse of the modern world. She contends that materials do not lose their essential qualities when someone is finished with them. Some of the pieces discussed in her slides are the barge and tow boat ballet with choreography of retired steel workers holding slogans in Pittsburgh, a six block ballet of street sweeping machines and sanitation workers in New York, and a ceremonial arch at the World Financial Center in New York City honoring the service economy with arches of worn-out gloves of workers, police walkie-talkies, and fire hoses
From conceptualism to feminism : Lucy Lippard's Numbers shows, 1969-74 by Cornelia H Butler( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"With a main essay by Cornelia Butler and including 140 black-and-white images. Additional contributions by Pip Day and Sabeth Buchmann, interviews with Lucy Lippard and Seth Siegelaub, archival texts by Peter Plagens, Griselda Pollock and Caroline Tisdall and interviews with artists Eleanor Antin, Agnes Denes, Alice Aycock and Mierle Laderman Ukeles. Four exhibitions of contemporary art curated by Lucy Lippard have become known as her 'numbers shows'. Each took the population of the city in which it was shown as its title: '557,087' in Seattle, '955,000' in Vancouver, '2,972,453' in Buenos Aires and 'c.7,500' in Valencia, California, before touring the US and to London. This third title in the Exhibition Histories series examines the numbers shows and follows Lippard's trajectory as critique and curator, tracing her growing political engagement and involvement with feminism. Extensive archival material is complemented by a new essay by Cornelia Butler and interviews with Lippard, Seth Siegelaub and exhibiting artists as well as critical responses written at the time by Peter Plagens and Griselda Pollock. The volume also includes an essay by Pip Day analysing artists' initiatives in Argentina as a context for Lippard's emerging political consciousness. The Exhibition Histories series investigates exhibitions that have shaped the way contemporary art is experienced, made and discussed."--Publisher
