Pop to popism( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This generously illustrated volume looks at Pop art from an international perspective from its beginnings in the 1950s to its revitalization in the 1980s. Lichtenstein, Warhol, Hamilton, and Hockney are names most often associated with the Pop art movement. But, as this richly illustrated history of the movement reveals, Pop extended beyond Great Britain and America, and lasted past the 1960s. Moving from continent to continent, from America to Europe to Australia, this volume follows the arc of the Pop art movement. In addition to well-known works by British and American artists, there are works by Enrico Baj (Italy), Niki de Saint Phalle (France), Gerhard Richter (Germany), and Martin Sharp (Australia) among many other international artists. The book's essays discuss how deeply the principles of Pop art--a challenge of the notions of "high" art; an attempt to expose the darker sides of celebrity and consumerism; and a means of protest and activism--penetrated modern culture around the world. The book concludes with a fascinating look at the resurgence of a Pop aesthetic in the 1980s when artists reworked Pop's rebellious appropriation tactics and engagement with popular culture
Present tense : an imagined grammar of portraiture in the digital age by Michael Desmond( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The National Portrait Gallery exhibition Present Tense: An imagined grammar of portraiture in the digital age considers the alliance between portraiture and technology and investigates how different ways of imaging reflect how the individual is perceived as well as how the various mechanisms of imaging that are used to manipulate that perception. Present Tense includes examples of the informal and immediate digital snapshots made with mobile phones; images recorded with sonograms that reveal faces that cannot be seen by the unaided eye; 2D and 3D portraits generated exclusively from binary code; and the more expected videos and manipulated photographs. A number of artists in the exhibition ignore the rising tide of digital imaging processes to favour old technology and create powerful images with the archaic daguerreotype technique or cruder still, old-fashioned stencil."--Publisher website
