Robert Smithson by Robert Smithson( Book )
10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This fully illustrated 280-page book accompanies the first comprehensive American retrospective of Robert Smithson's (1938-1973) complex and highly influential body of work. Perhaps best known as the creator of Spiral Jetty, a fifteen-hundred-foot rock coil dramatically situated in Utah's Great Salt Lake, Smithson also broke new ground with his films, photographs, writings, drawings, sculptures, and collages. His oeuvre defied convention, utilizing nontraditional art materials such as mirrors, maps, concrete, earth, and asphalt - in addition to language, as both a written and visual medium. Smithson's revolutionary ideas moved art beyond the walls of the museum into the landscape itself."--BOOK JACKET
On line : drawing through the twentieth century by Cornelia H Butler( Book )
10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On Line: Drawing through the Twentieth Century explores a radical transformation of drawing that began over a century ago and continues as a vital impulse in art today. In a revolutionary departure from traditional ideas of drawing, and from the reliance on paper as the medium's fundamental support, artists have pushed the line of drawing into real space, expanding its relationship to gesture and form and invigorating its links with painting and sculpture, photography and film, and, particularly notably, dance and performance. Through works by over 100 artists, and through essays by Cornelia Butler and Catherine de Zegher that illuminate both broad themes and individual practices, On Line presents a groundbreaking history of an art form. The great, recognized art movements, from Cubism and Futurism at the beginning of the twentieth century through Abstract Expressionism, Neo-Concretism, arte povera, Conceptualism, and many other approaches up to the diverse present, are shown from a new perspective, and are joined by a host of less familiar artworks that properly claim a place in this differently defined field

From conceptualism to feminism : Lucy Lippard's Numbers shows, 1969-74 by Cornelia H Butler( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries 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

"Paul Sietsema is an artist deeply engaged in the act of looking. For his third and newest project, Figure 3 (2008), Sietsema takes as inspiration the ethnographic objects that he has collected from various locations, including Africa, Indo-Asia, and the South Pacific region of Oceania. Situating Figure 3 in the broader context of Sietsema's work of the past ten years, this far-ranging volume explores the artist's unique approach to looking as well as the relationships among his drawings, object-making, and film. Includes 50 illustrations."--BOOK JACKET

Lygia Clark : the abandonment of art, 1948-1988 by Cornelia H Butler( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Museum of Modern Art presents a major retrospective devoted to the art of Lygia Clark (Brazilian, 1920-1988), the first comprehensive exhibition in North America of her work. Lygia Clark: The Abandonment of Art, 1948-1988 comprises nearly 300 works made between the late 1940s and her death in 1988. Drawn from public and private collections, including MoMA's own, this survey is organized around three key themes: abstraction, Neo-Concretism, and the 'abandonment' of art. Each of these axes anchors a significant concept or a constellation of works that mark a definitive step in Clark's career. While Clark's legacy in Brazil is profound, this exhibition draws international attention to her work. By bringing together all parts of her radical production, the exhibition seeks to reintroduce her into current discourses of abstraction, participation, and a therapeutic art practice."
