One way or another : Asian American art now by Asia society (N.Y.)( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary Asian American artists--with a strong sense of being American and an acute critical consciousness of world matters--grapple with issues of identity in a way that sets them apart from their predecessors. Whereas many Asian American artists of a previous generation directly referred to an Asian sense of self in their works, it can be argued that younger Asian American artists only sometimes make reference to it or omit it entirely. This creatively designed book focuses on recent works by seventeen Asian American artists born in the late 1960s and 1970s--including Patty Chang, Kaz Oshiro, and Jean Shin--to explore this pivotal generation of artists, the prevalent themes in their art, and the different ways they configure identity in their work. One Way or Another features examples of painting, sculpture, and video and installation art--many previously unpublished--and includes essays that discuss the shifting meaning of Asian America over the last decade and address the issues of mixed heritage and the emergence of an evolving Asian American identity in an increasingly globalized society
Eva Hesse : studiowork by Briony Fer( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout her career, Eva Hesse (1936-1970) produced a significant number of small, experimental works alongside her large-scale sculpture. These so-called "test-pieces" were made in a wide range of materials, including latex, wire-mesh, sculp-metal, wax, and cheesecloth. Rather than considering them simply technical explorations, the art historian Briony Fer renames these small objects studiowork and argues that they put in question conventional notions of what sculpture is." "The book contains a comprehensive catalogue of the studiowork, including many new works that have never before been seen in public. Although previously these small objects were considered peripheral to the major sculptures, this fascinating new study argues that they force us to ask fundamental questions, not just about what an artwork is, but about the work that art does in our culture."--Jacket
State of mind : new California art circa 1970 by Constance Lewallen( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hippie modernism : the struggle for utopia by Walker Art Center( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia accompanies an exhibition of the same title examining the art, architecture and design of the counter-culture of the 1960s and early 1970s. The catalogue surveys the radical experiments that challenged societal and professional norms while proposing new kinds of technological, ecological and political utopia. It includes the counter design proposals of Victor Papanek and the anti-design polemics of Global Tools; the radical architectural visions of Archigram, Superstudio, Haus Rucker Co and ONYX; the media-based installations of Ken Isaacs, Joan Hills and Mark Boyle and Helio Oiticica and Neville DAlmeida; the experimental films of Jordan Belson, Bruce Conner and John Whitney; posters and prints by Emory Douglas, Corita Kent and Victor Moscoso; documentation of performances staged by the Diggers and the Cockettes; publications such as Oz Magazine and The Whole Earth Catalog and books by Marshall McLuhan and Buckminster Fuller; and much, much more. While the turbulent social history of the 1960s is well known, its cultural production remains comparatively under-examined. In this substantial volume, scholars explore a range of practices such as radical architectural and anti-design movements emerging in Europe and North America; the print revolution in the experimental graphic design of books, posters and magazines; and new forms of cultural practice that merged street theater and radical politics. Through a profusion of illustrations, interviews with figures including Gerd Stern and Michael Callahan of USCO, Gunther Zamp Kelp of Haus Rucker Co, Ken Isaacs, Ron Williams and Woody Rainey of ONYX, Franco Raggi of Global Tools, Tony Martin, Clark Richert and Richard Kallweit of Drop City, and new scholarly writings, this book explores the hybrid conjunction of the countercultural ethos and the modernist desire to fuse art and life
Joe Brainard : a retrospective by Constance Lewallen( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first museum retrospective exhibition of Joe Brainard (1942 - 1994), was on view in Gallery 2, presented a wide selection from Brainard's prolific lifework, including approximately 150 collages, assemblages, paintings, drawings, and book covers. Brainard's art is characterized by humor and exuberant color, and by eclectic combinations of media and subject matter. Joe Brainard: A Retrospective reveals Brainard's creative genius and aims to raise the profile of this under-appreciated but nonetheless intriguing and important late-twentieth-century American artist."--Rod Macneil, Contributing Editor

The mask of Venice : masking, theater & identity in the art of Tiepolo & his time( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mask of Venice: Masking, Theater, and Identity in the Art of Tiepolo and His Time looks at the mask, both literal and figurative as a way of approaching the rich artistic production of eighteenth-century Venice. Timed to coincide with the three hundredth anniversary of the birth of Giambattista Tiepolo, the central figure in the exhibition, The Mask of Venice explores the visual representation of masking as a metaphor for disguise and freedom in the otherwise rigidly controlled society of the time. Moving from images of masking in Venetian society, to the derivation of the mask from the commedia dell'arte, to the use of the theatrical devices both to hide and reveal character in the visual arts, The Mask of Venice studies the social world as well as the world of artistic imagination. This trajectory through the liberation of the mask ultimately allows us to unmask, at least in part, the often mysterious work of Tiepolo himself
Peter Hujar : speed of life by Peter Hujar( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Hujar was a leading figure of the downtown New York scene of the 1970s and '80s. He is most well-known for his portraits of New York City's artists, musicians, writers, and performers, which feature characters such as Susan Sontag, William S. Burroughs, David Wojnarowicz, and Andy Warhol, and was admired for his completely uncompromising attitude toward work and life. Hujar was a consummate technician, and his portraits of people, animals, and landscapes, with their exquisite black-and-white tonalities, were extremely influential. Underappreciated during his lifetime, Hujar is now a revered icon of the lost downtown art scene, and his photographs are held in permanent collections around the world. Over 160 photographs are gathered in Peter Hujar: Speed of Life. Published alongside a major touring exhibition, this collection presents Hujar's famous portraiture as well as his lesser-known projects.

Beauty Revealed : Images of Women in Qing Dynasty Chinese Painting by James Cahill( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beauty Revealed: Images of Women in Qing Dynasty Chinese Painting' brings together some of the world's finest examples of 'meiren hua' (paintings of beautiful women), a largely neglected and misunderstood genre of Chinese painting spanning the country's last imperial dynasty (1644-1912). Often dismissed as decorative or misinterpreted as highbrow portraits of ladies, these enigmatic and relatively unexamined works are the subject of close scholarly scrutiny in this publication. The corresponding exhibition includes works from the collection of the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive as well as loans from the British Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as a number of other American museums and private collections in England, Sweden and France.0Exhibition: UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, Berkeley, USA (25.09.-22.12.2013)
