Pop to popism( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This generously illustrated volume looks at Pop art from an international perspective from its beginnings in the 1950s to its revitalization in the 1980s. Lichtenstein, Warhol, Hamilton, and Hockney are names most often associated with the Pop art movement. But, as this richly illustrated history of the movement reveals, Pop extended beyond Great Britain and America, and lasted past the 1960s. Moving from continent to continent, from America to Europe to Australia, this volume follows the arc of the Pop art movement. In addition to well-known works by British and American artists, there are works by Enrico Baj (Italy), Niki de Saint Phalle (France), Gerhard Richter (Germany), and Martin Sharp (Australia) among many other international artists. The book's essays discuss how deeply the principles of Pop art--a challenge of the notions of "high" art; an attempt to expose the darker sides of celebrity and consumerism; and a means of protest and activism--penetrated modern culture around the world. The book concludes with a fascinating look at the resurgence of a Pop aesthetic in the 1980s when artists reworked Pop's rebellious appropriation tactics and engagement with popular culture

"Fifteen of New Zealand's leading artists talk about their lives, their work and what inspires them in the latest book published by Canterbury University Press. Inner Landscapes: 15 New Zealand Artists with Canterbury Connections is a compilation of verbal self portraits by artists who share a connection with the University of Canterbury's School of Fine Arts. In a unique approach, each artist speaks directly to the reader through interviews with Sally Blundell. Each entry is accompanied by full-page colour reproductions of the artist's work and striking photographic portraits of the artists in their studios by award-winning photographer Diederik van Heyningen. An essay by Justin Paton, senior curator at the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu, places the artists and their work in a wider context of art and place."--Publisher's website

Julian Rosefeldt : manifesto : a film installation in twelve scenes by Julian Rosefeldt( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in German and English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thirteen-part film installation 'Manifesto', produced by film and video artist Julian Rosefeldt is an homage to the explosive poetic power of key artist manifestos from the last hundred years. Australian actor Cate Blanchett plays thirteen different characters who navigate everyday situations. In taking on these personas, Blanchett lends a voice to a variety of manifestos written by visual artists, poets, architects, performers and filmmakers. The rebellious texts by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, André Breton, Tristan Tzara, Kazimir Malevich, Sol LeWitt, Claes Oldenburg, George Maciunas, Lebbeus Woods, Yvonne Rainer, Guy Debord, Jim Jarmusch and many others are arranged in new text collages, forming unexpected dialogues with each other. Rosefeldt's installation poses the question of the extent to which these manifestos, written in a spirit of dissent in the societies of their time, are still relevant today. In "Manifesto", Julian Rosefeldt's complex visual worlds, Cate Blanchett's versatility as an actor and the expressive force of the texts themselves merge to create a multi-layered work of art
Shane Cotton : the hanging sky by Justin Paton( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For two decades Shane Cotton (ONZM, Ngāpuhi) has been one of New Zealand's most acclaimed painters. His works of the 1990s played a pivotal part in that decade's debates about place, belonging and bicultural identity. In the mid 2000s, however, Cotton headed in a spectacular and unexpected new direction: skywards. Employing a sombre new palette of blue and black, he painted the first in what would become a major series of skyscapes -- vast, nocturnal spaces where birds speed and plummet. The Hanging Sky brings together highlights from this period with four distinctive new responses. New York essayist Eliot Weinberger offers a poetic meditation on what he calls 'the ghosts of birds' in Cotton's paintings. Christchurch Art Gallery senior curator Justin Paton plots his own encounters with Cotton across six years in which the artist was constantly 'finding space'. Melbourne-based curator Geraldine Kirrihi Barlow confronts the haunting role of Toi moko -- tattooed Māori heads -- in the paintings and in her own past. And Institute of Modern Art Director Robert Leonard argues the case for Cotton as a cultural surrealist exploring 'the treachery of images'." --
