Who gets to call it art? : the legend of Henry Geldzahler, 1935-1994 by Peter Rosen( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Geldzahler (1935-94), star curator and cultural impresario, lived a life worth examining. The first curator of the Department of 20th-Century Art at the Metropolitan Museum, first director of visual arts for the National Endowment of the Arts, and the first full-time commissioner of cultural affairs for New York City, his landmark 1969 show at the Metropolitan is still remembered with awe. "New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970" filled 35 galleries with more than 400 groundbreaking works of contemporary art. This film is not a full biographical examination of this singular figure's life, but rather a portrait in profile, as many of 'his' artists talk about Geldzahler and what his friendship meant to them

Proposed National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Office of Marine and Aviation Operations Aircraft Operations Center relocation : final environmental assessment by John Chamberlain( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office of Marine and Aviation Operations (OMAO) is responsible for managing and operating NOAA's fleet of ships and aircraft. NOAA's fleet of nine manned aircraft has been operated, managed, and maintained since 1993 at OMAO's Aircraft Operations Center (AOC) located at 7917 Hangar Loop Drive, Hangar 5, on MacDill Air Force Base (AFB) in Tampa, Florida. The AOC is comprised of up to 110 NOAA staff and operates from the circa 1940s-built Hangar 5, and associated ramp, office, shop and storage facilities. Due to a Department of Defense (DoD) realignment of aircraft assets nationally, MacDill AFB has been directed by its command to make space available for additional KC-135R air refueling aircraft and 400 support personnel. The OMAO AOC is directed to vacate the Hangar 5 location no later than July 1, 2017. In response, the OMAO has determined that regional entities that can offer long-term occupancy of a similarly sized AOC facility at an airport equipped with a minimum of an 8000-ft long runway, up to 99,000 square feet (SF) of hangar space (with adequate height), and administrative and storage space at an airport within 50 miles of MacDill AFB would most effectively and efficiently meet its relocation criteria. Two action alternatives are being evaluated by NOAA per Section 102 of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) under 42 U.S. Code (USC) §4332, and Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for Implementing Procedural Provisions of NEPA at 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1500-1508"--Executive summary (ES-1)

On this program we meet John Chamberlain, a major American artist who has been making sculpture for more than forty years. Fashioned from car parts found in automobile grave yards, his work has an undeniably distinctive, powerful American style. Rooted in abstract expressionism, it reflects the car culture we live with daily. Seen here are his 1994 and 1998 exhibitions at the Pace-Wildenstein Gallery. Also included are extensive interviews with John Chamberlain and art dealer/collector Allan Stone
John Chamberlain : Choices by John Chamberlain( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Often identified as the artist who successfully translated Abstract Expressionism into three dimensions, John Chamberlain wound through Franz Schubert, the U.S. Navy, hairdressing, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Black Mountain College poets on his path to art. In Chicago, Chamberlain admired the work of Willem de Kooning and David Smith and learned to weld. Black Mountain instilled in him an intuitive collage sensibility and an approach to language that favored the visual appearance and sounds of words, dissociating them from their definitions. Chamberlain moved to New York in 1956 and within a few years hit upon the decision to utilize car metal as art material. His sculptures hewn from automobiles inevitably attracted the wrong interpretation ; where Chamberlain employed creative re-use, others saw simply car crashes. He spent the rest of his life outrunning that association. His primary concern was and continued to be three-dimensional abstraction. More sensitive observers noted a kinship between his works and the dramatic modeling and contrapposto of Baroque art and sculptural drapery studies. With collage--the juxtaposition of heterogeneous elements--and abstraction--the elimination of figurative imager--as guiding principles, Chamberlain articulated the maxim that permeates his entire oeuvre: 'it's all in the fit.' Throughout his career, modulations in scale and medium provide a vital rhythm to his development. The sculptures range from the size of a fist to the girth of a generous hug to the height of a young, and eventually not so young, tree. Swelling and shrinking, in coats of multicolor, monochrome, or black-and-white paint, the survey of Chamberlain's career displays the integrity of the artist's gesture in diverse manifestations. Despite his commitment to abstraction, identifying anthropomorphic and zoomorphic traits in the lyrical, twisting forms is irresistible. Their playful titles are planted like so many red herrings: Belvo-Violet (1962), Miss Lucy Pink (1962), Rooster Starfoot (1976), Lord Suckfist (1989), and SPHINXGRIN TWO (1986/2010). Chamberlain brazenly defied the taboo of color in sculpture, a holdover from the rhetoric of medium specificity surrounding Abstract Expressionism (materials should be true to themselves, therefore color is the business of painting), which was still influential in the 1960s and considered one of the foremost problems in sculpture at the time. He originally circumvented the controversy by pleading that his color was found straight off of the assembly lines and highways of America. Shortly thereafter, he began to apply new paint to the metal, intervening in ever more elaborate ways with the surfaces of his materials. There are examples of airbrushing from the 1960s, drips and pours from the 1970s, sandblasting from the 1980s, and freehand and stenciled patterns from the 1990s forward. Amassing a body of work that could not be ignored, Chamberlain has been clumsily shoehorned into a variety of ill-fitting categories. Perhaps the most fertile of these is the retroactive link with Abstract Expressionism. His choice of vernacular materials also tied him to Pop. These same materials understood as products of standardized manufacturing associated him with Minimalism, encouraged by the unwavering critical support of Donald Judd. His method of assembly drew him toward Neo-Dada. He remains the inveterate rebel without a tribe, while still being recognized as a standard-bearer of sculptural practice. Driven by the pursuit of what he does not
