Paul McCarthy : head shop, shop head : works 1966-2006 by Paul McCarthy( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Product Description: Although Paul McCarthy was born in 1945, has been working for nearly 40 years and is counted among the most influential figures of his generation, he didn't become known to the general public until the early 1990s. Because of this, and because he has frequently collaborated with younger artists like Mike Kelley and Jason Rhoades, many people think mistakenly that McCarthy belongs to a younger generation. Perhaps this is also because his portfolio includes works like the 1993 Spaghetti Man, a mannequin-like child figure with a penis so long it coils in front of him, who likes to stand around galleries in nothing but a T-shirt and a furry bunny face mask. Works like these--uneasy, funny, wise--undertake a critical processing of Western culture, its traumas and taboos, and the institutions that shape its denizens. Hollywood, Disney and the family are a few of McCarthy's direct sources of inspiration. Head Shop/Shop Head: Works 1966-2006 features seven large installations, 15 large sculptures, two inflatable ones, drawings, photos and film, all of which are featured at the important retrospective mounted by Sweden's Moderna Museet in the summer of 2006
James Rosenquist : painting as immersion by James Rosenquist( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the major exhibition on James Rosenquist (1933-2017), for the first time ever the Museum Ludwig will present the works of this important representative of American Pop Art in the context of their cultural, social, and political dimensions. Along with archive materials, some of which have not previously been exhibited, as well as collages designated by the artist as source materials and many of the original advertisements that he used from old issues of Life magazine, the show will reveal a historical cosmos. After all, James Rosenquist's compositions are to a large extent the result of his marked interest in the social and political events of his time

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can art and visual theory contribute to the understanding of our current surveillance society? Watched! presents a selection of European artists who relate to current issues of discipline, control and security in our contemporary surveillance society. Surveillance is an expanding part of daily life. Since the start of the new millennium, we have seen major developments in security policies, data collection, software for private use, biometric science, social media, smartphones and technological innovations in other areas of ?smart surveillance?. Parallel to this change that has taken place in all parts of society, critical responses have increased across a wide range of disciplines, one of them being the arts. This publication offers a selection of artistic works and practices that addresses and reflects on issues of surveillance over the past fifteen years
Tony Matelli : a human echo by Tony Matelli( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Die Publikation präsentiert einen Überblick über das vielschichtige Werk, das der New Yorker Künstler Tony Matelli in den letzten 15 Jahren geschaffen hat. Standen am Anfang seines Schaffens makabre, emotional aufgeladene Objekte, so drehen sich die späteren Arbeiten auf verhaltene Weise um den Atelierraum und die Umgebung des Künstlers. The publication is a comprehensive publication presenting the multifaceted work created by New York artist Tony Matelli in the past 15 years. In this time, his art has developed from the macabre, visceral objects he began making in 1996 to quieter, subdued interpretations of the artist's studio space and immediate urban surroundings."--Publisher's website

Monet : lost in translation : Corot, Courbet, Diaz de la Pena, Rousseau, Boudin, Pissarro, Degas, Sisley, Morisot, Guillaumin, Renoir, Gauguin by Monet : lost in translation( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the French impressionism period, artists like Monet moved outside the studio to paint elaborate plein air "impressions" of the world around them. This book brings together two hundred full-color images from the period that will leave readers breathless as they move through masterworks by Corot, Degas, Renoir, Gauguin, Caillebotte, and many of their contemporaries before ending on what is undeniably the movement's most well-loved masterwork: Monet's Water Lilies, painted in his famous garden in Giverny
Something strange this way : Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller : the carnie, storm room, opera for a small room, the killing machine, the cabinet of curiousness, the forty part motet by Janet Cardiff( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ARoS Aarhus Art Museum is proud to present SOMETHING STRANGE THIS WAY; a presentation of six spectacular multimedia installations by the internationally renowned Canadian artist duo Janet Cardiff (b. 1957) and George Bures Miller (b. 1960). The majority of those interested in art will know Cardiff and Miller as sound artists. Many of us will have experienced, or heard about, their so-called 'walks' with Cardiff's intimate and thoughtful voice guiding us through public spaces. However, though sound is prominent and still constitutes the key element in Cardiff and Miller's works, they also work within many other kinds of media. Since the mid-1990s they have created a number of large, interactive and spectacular installations featuring sound, music, narrative, found objects as well as compelling light effects. These are the kinds of art works that form the core of the exhibition Something Strange This Way at ARoS. The title of the exhibition Something Strange This Way refers to mysterious places, amusement parks and museums where strange and bizarre forces are at play. Like a large number of Cardiff and Miller's works the exhibition plays on our expectations; they provoke our curiosity and seduce us, before twisting and revealing a new dimension ... Cardiff and Miller love surprises, complex feelings and open narratives. In the exhibition Something Strange this Way they take us on an unusual and wonderful journey through several dimensions in time, into a series of mental states, into the intellectual worlds of their fictitious characters, to the 'strangest' places; the home of an opera lover, an abandoned dentist's office or an unusual amusement park.--ARoS website
