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

18 editions published in 2008 in English and Italian and held by 609 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 )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 142 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

Tacita Dean : film by Tacita Dean( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"FILM" is an 11-minute silent 35 mm film projected onto a gigantic white monolith standing 13 metres tall at the end of a darkened Turbine Hall. It is the first work in The Unilever Series devoted to the moving image, and celebrates the masterful techniques of analogue filmmaking as opposed to digital. The work evokes the monumental mysterious black monolith from the classic science fiction film "2001: A Space Odyssey". The film feels like a surreal visual poem, including images from the natural world among others, with the epic wall of the Turbine Hall showing through, in a montage of black and white, colour, and hand-tinted film. -- []

" ... based on opera and theatre programmes of the 1930s and 1940s ... A series of 36 opera programmes that have been defaced by their owner to become inadvertent collages which reveal themselves through the course of the book, and ... remain unexplained by description or text"--Publisher's website
Julie Mehretu : liminal squared by Julie Mehretu( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 61 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)

Raymond Hains by Jean-Marie Gallais( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout his life, French artist Raymond Hains (1926?2005) proved a constant innovator, who in his art always found new means of expression and new ways of finding and presenting images. Immediately after the Second World War he experimented with photograms and optical distortion through camera lenses, in what he termed hypnagogic photography. In the 1950s, he took torn posters from the billboards of the city and offered them as paintings, suggesting an affichiste alternative closer to life than spiritually suffused abstract expressionism. In 1960 he was among the original founders of Nouveau Realisme and carried the grim reality of construction hoardings into the gallery space. He then discovered the possibilities inherent in word play and framed the resulting juxtapositions and narratives in photographs, or collected them in suitcases full of curious findings. He discovered street sculptures at the margins of the cityscape and photographed them, too. Around the new millennium, he began a series of macintoshages, collages of pop-up windows grabbed from a computer screen, while he also developed neon sculptures after the Borromean knots of psychiatrist Jacques Lacan. 0Exhibition: Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin-Charlottenburg, Germany (10.10.-14.11.2015)

La carte d'après nature by Christy Lange( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in French and English and held by 34 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

Ceal Floyer : a handbook by Ceal Floyer( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Those who experience the oeuvre of Ceal Floyer (*1968), who has lived for many years in Berlin, for the first time may initially be surprised, irritated, and ultimately delighted. She plays with conventional patterns of perception in a highly sophisticated way, piercing through them with a keen sense of irony and the simplest of means. Her works are productive irritations whose inherent logic prompts an open process of seeing and thinking. With her work Light Switch (1992) she hoodwinks us by showing us the photograph of a light switch at a place in the room where one might be located. Light illusions of deception and disappointment that also turn up in later works such as Overhead Projection (2006). In this case, a light bulb seems to be suspended from the ceiling of the space that in reality is lying on the projection stage of an overhead projector. 00Exhibition: Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany (29.10.15 - 10.10.2016); Aargauer Kunstmuseum, Aarau, Germany (19.01. - 31.04.2016)
