Bill Viola : the passions by Bill Viola( Book )
17 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 532 libraries worldwide
"In his opening essay, John Walsh traces Viola's development as a video artist and the intellectual and spiritual concerns that have preoccupied him over the years. And in "The Artist in His Studio," Walsh offers a rare first-person account of the making of Emergence, a new work commissioned by the Getty for the exhibition. A transcription of a recent conversation between Bill Viola and Hans Belting reveals the roots of Viola's involvement with image making and the role that older works of art have played in his development. Peter Sellars explores the spiritual foundations and meaning of Viola's work in a remarkable essay that is as much meditation as study, while Viola himself selects some fifteen works of art, which, along with pages from his personal notebooks, represent the sources that have inspired the Passions series. Finally, Kira Perov has selected and organized frame sequences from each of the twenty Passions pieces, accompanied by the artist's descriptions. Altogether, Bill Viola: The Passions is a thorough and richly illustrated study of a new and compelling group of works by this seminal contemporary artist."--Jacket

A mirror of nature : Dutch paintings from the collection of Mr. and Mrs. Edward William Carter by John Walsh( Book )
7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 158 libraries worldwide
The magnificent river and mountain landscape that shelters their flight to Egypt. The special character of this collection is that its artists depicted the world around them. Thus the domestic world is mirrored too in exquisite flower paintings by Ambrosius Bosschaert, Dirck de Bray, and Jan van Huysum, which in turn make colorful contrasts with the pleasures of the table represented by Pieter Claesz., Willem Heda, or Clara Peeters. All the preciousness of Dutch artists'

Inhaling the spore : a journey through the Museum of Jurassic Technology by Leonard Feinstein( visu )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
"Like the first museums of the 17th century, the fantastic array of exhibits at the Museum of Jurassic Technology suggests a modern-day 'cabinet of curiosities,' filled with juxtapositions of the genuine, the strange, and the truly unexplainable. As its founder, David Wilson reveals 'We like experiences that break the hard shell of certainty.' Inhaling the Spore explores how this remarkable museum inspires us to wonder at the marvels of man and nature...and wonder whether any of it could possibly be true."--Container

Bill Viola : las pasiones by Bill Viola( Book )
6 editions published in 2004 in Spanish and held by 24 libraries worldwide
La muestra presenta una serie de doce vídeos realizados por Viola en los últimos tres años, en los que, a través de un estudio riguroso de la gestualidad y una estricta puesta en escena, se revive el misterio de las antiguas tablas medievales y renacentistas sobre la Pasión de Cristo, en un contexto espiritual que no se corresponde al de la época en que fueron creadas, enfrentándose al problema de la representación de las emociones en los rostros y cuerpos de los modelos -actores en el caso de Viola-, que se mueven a cámara lenta, en un espacio íntimo y silencioso, en grandes pantallas planas, similares a pinturas murales, revelando el poder y la complejidad de las expresiones emocionales. Se presenta también "The Crossing", una videoinstalación que muestra la desaparición de la figura humana por la acción de dos fuerzas naturales opuestas, el agua y el fuego
