Ruth Duckworth : Modernist sculptor by Jo Lauria( Book )
2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 269 libraries worldwide
"In a career spanning more than six decades, Ruth Duckworth has created an immense and important body of work. Her ambition, intensity, and defiance of convention have governed her personal journey - fleeing from Nazi Germany to England at the outset of World War II, and settling in the United States in the mid-1960s - as well as her prodigious artistic output. Although Duckworth started out sculpting in stone, and has created both intimate and large-scale artworks in bronze and other materials, she has since the early 1960s predominantly worked in clay. It is for her work in this medium that she is recognized as one of the twentieth century's most innovative and significant sculptors. A true alchemist of abstraction, Duckworth has consistently produced barrier-bending art that is elegant yet at the same time buoyant, visionary works of seductive refinement, austere power, and radiant immediacy that masterfully continue the aesthetics of modernism into the twenty-first-century." "This volume, which accompanies a major touring exhibition provides a long-overdue assessment of Duckworth's significance. It reveals the conceptual and iconographic foundations that Duckworth's work shares with other important modernist sculptors."--BOOK JACKET
The global Africa project ( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 266 libraries worldwide
"This book provides a savvy survey of the latest work by designers, craftspeople, and architects of African descent from around the world. Artists and designers of African ancestry--many in Africa but also others throughout Europe, the Americas, and the Far East--are working in a wide array of mediums: fashion, architecture, non-traditional crafts, design, fine art, and photography. Authors Lowery Stokes Sims and Leslie King-Hammond, together with six contributors, challenge presumptions of what constitutes an "African" style or aesthetic, and demonstrate the power and expressive potential of materials, textures and forms. Work by well-known artists such as Yinka Shonibare, MBE and architects including David Adjaye appear alongside those of lesser-known but equally exciting designers whose garments, carpets, baskets, ceramics, furniture, body arts, wall painting, photographs and sculpture blur the distinction between art and craft. The result is an enormously diverse display of young and established talent, and a wide-ranging survey of contemporary African art and design."--Publisher's website
Out of hand : materializing the postdigital ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 208 libraries worldwide
Organized by MAD curator Ron Labaco, this exhibition considers the impact of these new, revolutionary methods of computer-assisted manufacture on fine art, design, and architecture. Through this exhibition, MAD will explore a monumental transition in the way human beings understand creation, from the earliest objects conceived and produced by individual makers through the tools of technological innovation. Today's digital fabrication methods such as 3D printing, CNC (computer-numerically-controlled) machining, and digital knitting unite divergent artistic approaches, offering new opportunities for individual artists, architects, and designers to integrate these skills as vital part of their personal creative processes, representing the fruits of a new movement
Nature transformed : wood art from the Bohlen Collection ( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 203 libraries worldwide
"Nowhere is the vision, audacity, technical mastery, and sophistication of contemporary wood art better represented than in the collection of Robert Bohlen and Lillian Montalto Bohlen." "Employing many different types of wood from the common place to the exotic as well as different carving, turning, and finishing techniques, the artists represented have created works that amuse, astonish, and inspire. Their efforts broaden our understanding of what art can be and enrich our experience of the world around us, challenging us anew to think about materials, forms, and textures. Through essays and interviews that explore the evolution of wood art as well as current concerns and practices in the field, Nature Transformed: Wood Art from the Bohlen Collection offers a comprehensive look at a unique contemporary art form at a vital moment in its evolution. Its publication is a welcome event for those who already know and love wood art - and a revelation to those who have not yet fully explored its possibilities."--BOOK JACKET
Against the grain : wood in contemporary art, craft and design ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 167 libraries worldwide
"Focusing on some of the most interesting conceptual technical trends in wood working today, Against the grain includes approximately 65 vessels, sculptures, furniture, and installations, created since 2000, which provocatively defy categories and celebrate the visual dynamics of wood. The book demonstrates how contemporary creators have engaged the medium of wood in strategies that might be described as "postmodern, " employing mimicry, assemblage, virtuosity, and whimsy (with a serious purpose). Environmental issues also are prominently addressed. Artists represented include Derek Bencomo, Gary Carsley, Hunt Clark, Piet Hein Eek, David Ellsworth, Sebastian Errazuriz, Bud Latven, Mark Lindquist, Thomas Loeser, Sarah Oppenheimer, William Pope.L, Martin Puryear, Marc Andre Robinson, Laurel Roth, Betye Saar, Courtney Smith, Elisa Strozyk, Alison Elizabeth Taylor, and Ursula von Rydingsvard"--From The Bulk Book Store website (viewed November 20, 2012)

Pricked : extreme embroidery by David Revere McFadden( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 95 libraries worldwide
"Pricked takes the pulse of the international embroidery as practiced today. It is not by any measure an exhibition about embroidery, but rather an exhitition of contemporary art made by artists that use embroidery as a medium to communcate their ideas and visions." ... "Language & art; Process & materials. The pleasure of making and the communication of meaning is vital in the work of each artist in Pricked: extreme embroidery. These are artists that have chosen embroidery as the most direct way to bring their artistic visions to life. A return to materiality in art practice is indicated by the work presented by each artist, ; it also documents a shift in the way art functions in our lives. These works suggest that the real can trump the virtual, that low-tech activities can be as impressive as high-tech systems, that personal visions are as valid as generic pronouncements, and that process and materials carry their own meaning in contemporary art."--P. 10 & 97
