Cy Twombly : cycles and seasons by Cy Twombly( Book )

15 editions published in 2008 in English and Italian and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cy Twombly (b.1928) is one of the leading figures from the generation of American artists that also included Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol. Unlike them, he left America early in his career to live and work in Italy where he drew inspiration from European literature and classical culture. He swiftly built an international reputation with his uniquely expressive abstract paintings, works on paper and sculpture." "Accompanying a major, touring retrospective spanning over fifty years of Twombly's work, this book provides a long-needed critical overview of his career, focusing on his paintings, drawings and sculpture. There is also a rare and wide-ranging interview with the artist and a newly commissioned text by the artist Tacita Dean, as well as an illustrated chronology and extensive bibliography." "Combining the latest scholarship with numerous colour illustrations, this will be the most thorough examination of the life and work of this artist for years to come."--Jacket

Floh by Tacita Dean( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The family snapshot is the most humble of photographic genres. It is also the most ubiquitous. But although the snapshot has been an enormous formal influence on contemporary art photography, and although we are familiar with its aesthetic and it is related to other vernacular photographs--to the studio portrait, to the postcard--and to social documentary photographs, it nevertheless remains one of the most enigmatic, uncertain and fugitive of documents. Its immediate meanings are closed and private, known only to the individuals involved and their immediate circle. For this reason, while there have been many photobooks constructed from vernacular photographs, there have been relatively few featuring snapshots. One of the most successful is Floh, by the British artist Tacita Dean and her collaborator Martyn Ridgewell. The images in Floh are photographs discovered by Dean in flea markets across Europe and the United States--family portraits, holiday snapshots, scenic views, rites of passage and everyday, banal occurrences. By itself, each image's narrative remains closed and silent, but inserted into the larger sequence of the book the collected pictures begin to resonate and beguile with tremendous poignancy."--The Photobook : A History Volume II / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. London : Phaidon, 2004

Julie Mehretu : liminal squared by Julie Mehretu( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mehretu's first major solo exhibition in London featured new and recent paintings, some of which will be presented within a specially constructed environment designed by David Adjaye in close collaboration with the artist. Described by curator Douglas Fogle as "perfect metaphors for the increasingly interconnected and complex character of the 21st century", Mehretu's large-scale paintings, which are built up in layers, employ a broad lexicon of drawing techniques together with a precise, muscular abstraction to investigate the intersection of politics, architecture and history and the way these forces shape the formation of our social identity. Exhibition: White Cube, Bermondsey, UK (2013)

La carte d'après nature( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catalogue de l'exposition dirigée par Thomas Demand à l'occasion de l'inauguration de la Villa Paloma au Nouveau Musée National Monaco du 18 septembre 2010 au 22 février 2011.0"La Carte d'après nature, exposition collective conçue par l'artiste allemand Thomas Demand, pour le NMNM de Monaco, doit son titre à la revue éponyme fondée par René Magritte en 1952. L'œuvre de Demand, on le sait, est composée de maquettes de carton hyper-réalistes représentant des environnements quotidiens - bureaux, appartements, jardins - qu'il photographie ensuite. Avec La Carte d'après nature, le catalogue en témoigne, Thomas Demand livre une proposition nourrie de ses préoccupations d'artiste : essentiellement les notions de véracité de la représentation photographique et de croyance en cette représentation."0Rémi Coignet, Le Monde

Rodney Graham by Rodney Graham( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The art by the Canadian Rodney Graham may come across as light-footed, yet in reality it harbors an extraordinary complexity in terms of content and its use of media. His photographs, objects, paintings, films, texts, and compositions contain references to philosophy and literature, to the history of art and culture, that range from Erasmus of Rotterdam and Edgar Allan Poe to Sigmund Freud, Richard Wagner, and Kurt Cobain. While in his early oeuvre he still approaches his sources of material with a great deal of conceptual rigor, in their playful ambivalence between scientific factuality and imaginative fiction his later works are marked primarily by an enormous and intelligent sense of humor.0The Goetz Collection includes works from all of his creative phases and genres. This publication provides substantial insight into this all-rounder’s extensive artistic work of the last forty years and extends an invitation to set out on a journey of discovery.0Exhibition: Sammlung Goetz, Munich, Germany (28.11.2015-23.4.2016)
