Blurring the boundaries : installation art, 1969-1996 by Hugh Marlais Davies ( Book )
4 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Far from being the latest movement or a new development in contemporary art, installation art, one could argue, is only the most recent manifestation of the oldest tradition in art, going as far back as the prehistoric paintings on cave walls at Lascaux. Fundamental to this work are its habitation and incorporation of a physical site, a connection to real conditions - be they visual, historical, or social - and often, a bridging of traditional art boundaries. The aesthetic power of installation art does not reside in the singular, commodified object but rather in the artwork's ability to become, not merely represent, the continuum of real experience." "Blurring the Boundaries examines the subject of installation art through the permanent collection and exhibition record of the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, an institution with a unique heritage in support of such art dating back to the 1960s."--BOOK JACKET

Christo and Jeanne-Claude in the Vogel collection by Molly Donovan ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Christo and Jeanne-Claude have created some of the most visually breathtaking works of the twentieth century. From early wrapped objects to monumental outdoor projects such as The Umbrellas, Japan-U.S.A., 1984-91 and Wrapped Reichstag, Berlin, 1971-95, the artists have used fabric - wrapped, draped, and folded over, around, and through natural and constructed forms - to transcend the traditional bounds of painting, drawing, sculpture, and architecture." "This volume spanning forty years of Christo and Jeanne-Claude's remarkable career accompanies an exhibition at the National Gallery of Art of sixty-one works from the collection of Dorothy and Herbert Voqel, whose relationship with the artists dates to 1971. The wonderful breadth of works presented in color and discussed here includes several early packages, models for large-scale public works, preparatory drawings and collages for projects in urban and rural sites, and photographs of the completed projects."--BOOK JACKET
Out of the ordinary : Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown and Associates : architecture, urbanism, design by David Bruce Brownlee ( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Phenomenal : California light, space, surface by Robin Lee Clark ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the 1960s and 1970s, a loosely affiliated group of Los Angeles artists--including Larry Bell, Mary Corse, Robert Irwin, James Turrell, and Doug Wheeler--more intrigued by questions of perception than by the crafting of discrete objects, embraced light as their primary medium. Whether by directing the flow of natural light, embedding artificial light within objects or architecture, or playing with light through the use of reflective, translucent, or transparent materials, each of these artists created situations capable of stimulating heightened sensory awareness in the receptive viewer. Phenomenal: California Light, Space, Surface, companion book to the exhibition of the same name, explores and documents the unique traits of the phenomenologically engaged work produced in Southern California during those decades and traces its ongoing influence on current generations of international artists

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Automatic Cities explores the psychological and metaphorical influence of architecture on contemporary visual art. The title of the exhibition refers to the Surrealist practices of automatic writing and automatic drawing, which sought to access individual creativity by tapping into the unconscious. The exhibition explores notions of architecture in the broadest sense, comprising images of sites and cities both built and unbuilt, rising from collective experience and imagination." "Automatic Cities includes works by 13 artists and one artists' collective hailing from 11 countries around the globe including Michael Borremans (Belgium); Matthew Buckingham (New York); Los Carpinteros (Cuba); Catharina van Eetvelde (Paris, born Belgium); Jakob Kolding (Berlin, born Copenhagen); Ann Lislegaard (Copenhagen, born in Norway); Julie Mehretu (New York, born Ethiopia); Paul Noble (London); Sarah Oppenheimer (New York); Matthew Ritchie (New York, born London); Hiraki Sawa (London, born Japan); Katrin Sigurdardottir (U.S., born Iceland); Rachel Whiteread (London); and Saskia Olde Wolbers (London, born Netherlands)."--BOOK JACKET
