Zoe Leonard : photographs, Fotomuseum Winterthur by Zoe Leonard( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photographer Zoe Leonard practices a type of cerebral roaming combined with carefully considered observation. For more than 20 years she has criss-crossed nature and culture, cityscapes and museums, always searching for signs that say something about structures, about natural and cultural conditions and the contradictions, parallels and connections between them. Leonard's photographs of anatomical wax figures, fashion shows, trees and fences present figures in sparse black-and-white images that open up visual fields of thought and reveal within them our visible world--the concrete and established structures that make up our reality. Leonard first created an international stir at the Documenta 9 exhibition in Kassel, Germany, in 1992, when she placed black-and-white photographs of female genitalia in the context of a male-dominated museum. Since then, the political aspects of her work have formed a backdrop for her constant struggle with shape, imagery and the union of symbols and content."--Publisher description

L'intime( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in French and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La représentation de l'intimité, pour exister et s'exprimer, doit figer le mouvement intérieur dont elle émane et qui lui échappe en permanence. Cette question du dedans et du dehors est une question véritablement politique, celle qui travaille une société contemporaine fascinée par le familier, l'étranger, l'identité et les minorités. Fruit du séminaire tenu à l'ENSBA en 1997

Nancy Spero : œuvres sur papier by Nancy Spero( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in French and Undetermined and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Connue pour ses positions pacifistes et féministes radicales, l'artiste américaine Nancy Spero (1926-2009), est, dans sa jeunesse, élève de l'Art Institute de Chicago, place forte de la peinture figurative. Puis, elle vient à Paris, de 1949 à 1950, où elle étudie à l'École nationale des beaux-arts. Mariée en 1951 avec le peintre Leon Golub ils auront trois enfants, elle revient vivre avec sa famille dans la capitale française de 1959 à 1964. À son retour aux États-Unis, Nancy Spero s'engage contre la guerre au Viêt Nam et traduit son horreur dans les War Paintings (1966-1970). Suivront les Artaud Paintings (1969-1970) puis la célèbre série des Codex Artaud (1971-1972), avec laquelle elle met en place le principe systématique de bandes de papier, verticales ou horizontales, dans la tradition des papyri égyptiens, des rouleaux chinois et des frises antiques. À partir des années 1970, Nancy Spero met la femme au centre de son travail et représente désormais l'homme au sens large sous une apparence exclusivement féminine. Son travail prend alors une tournure radicalement féministe. Elle forge l'image d'une femme transgressant toute limite d'époque et de culture, libre, forte et intemporelle. Le Centre Pompidou organise, pour la première fois en France, une rétrospective consacrée à l'oeuvre de Nancy Spero en réunissant une soixantaine de dessins de l'artiste américaine, disparue l'année dernière à l'âge de 83 ans."

The slip of the tongue by Danh Vo( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in 3 languages and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Danh Vos' conceptual artworks and installations often draw upon elements of personal lived experience (his own, the lives of his parents and other family members) to explore broader historical, social or political themes, particularly those relating to the history of Vietnam at the close of the twentieth century. The works shown in this book, closely related to an exhibition at the Pinault Foundation in Venice, in addition to Vos' site-specific installations, include some curious old works of art from Venetian museums and collections, provocatively chosen by Vo to establish an unprecedented dialogue between past and present
Roni Horn by Roni Horn( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rosa Barba : from source to poem by E Lebovici( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rosa Barba's work is grounded in a careful exploration of the materiality, the devices, the production conditions, and the grammar of cinema. The monograph From Source to Poem is an entrancing account of the main motives that drive the artist's practice, underscoring the context in which the artworks are presented at both architectural and conceptual levels. Besides numerous films, sculptures, and works composed of light, the catalogue accompanying the exhibition at Pirelli HangarBicocca in Milan, and other recent exhibition venues, also features the new 35mm film From Source to Poem from 2016 for the first time in Italy. Hundreds of images from historical archives in the United States evolve into a kind of collage of the cultural legacy of a Western civilization in the twentieth century. "I would like," says Barba, "to continue to explore the geographies that we create around us.""--Publisher description
Haim Steinbach : recent works ; [exhibition] from December 9, 1988 to February 26, 1989 by Haim Steinbach( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alice Neel by Alice Neel( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and French and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in Philadelphia in 1900, Alice Neel trained at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women and carved out a career as an artist in New York, often in difficult circumstances. Neel's dedication to the unfashionable art of portrait painting and social realism and this during the decades of abstract expressionism, pop art and minimalism ensured that her work remained permanently out of kilter with avant-garde artistic developments. Neel's posthumous success is intimately connected to her profound social conscience and idiosyncratic choice of sitters. After her death in 1984, critical interest in Neel's work further intensified and led to a series of landmark exhibitions in Europe. Drawn from the artists estate, the exhibition and catalogue include paintings from all periods of Neel's career, together with a selection of drawings
"There was a sense of family ..." : the friends of Mark Morrisroe( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The photographs of Mark Morrisroe (1959-1989) feature a revolving cast of characters - childhood friends, "Boston school" allies such as Jack Pierson, flatmates, lovers and hustlers - that freights them, in the wake of those early days of AIDS, with a tremendous poignancy, edge and melancholy. Struck by these qualities, the Morrisroe scholar and curator Teresa Philo Gruber decided to track down and interview the photographer's friends, acquaintances and lovers, and to make this book - a portrait of Morrisroe through his milieu, or "family." 'There Was a Sense of Family': This book characterizes Morrisroe as the photographer-director of his time and place. It includes interviews with Pia Howard, Jane Hudson, Kathe Izzo, Laurie Olinder, Jack Pierson, John Stefanelli, Mike and Doug Starn, Stephen Tashijan, Gail Thacker and others. Morrisroe's portraits of these subjects are included alongside contemporary portraits by Gruber
