  • 'Dear Painter, Paint Me...' Painting the Figure Since Late Picabia

    By Alison M. Gingeras

    Our Price: $35.00
    • Format: Paperback
    • ISBN-13: 9782844261380
    • Publisher: Centre Pompidou

    Through a rigorous selection of artists, the exhibition (2002-03) adopted a tightly focused approach to examine painters that have chosen to represent the human figure through the lens of mass media images. Francis Picabia – whose controversial nudes from the 1940s have recently been resuscitated through recent developments in art historical research - opens this genealogical introduction to the exhibition. The twelve contemporary artists that sustain the legacy of these historical figures – adding to Picabia, Sigmar Polke, Alex Katz, and Martin Kippenberger - share an antagonistic position that has driven each artist to question the loaded historical and political assumptions about figurative painting. Artists’ Biographies, Exhibition Checklist. Color illus. 200p.
  • The 'Do-it-Yourself' Artwork: Participation from Fluxus to New Media (Rethinking Art's Histories)

    Viewers of contemporary art are often invited to involve themselves actively in artworks, by entering installations, touching objects, performing instructions or clicking on interactive websites. Why have artists sought to engage spectators in these new forms of participation? In what ways does active participation affect the viewer's experience and the status of the artwork? Spanning a range of practices including kinetic art, happenings, environments, performance, installations, relational and new media art from the 1950s to the present, this critical anthology sheds light on the history and specificity of artworks that only come to life when you -- the viewer -- are invited to "do it yourself." Rather than a specialist topic in the history of twentieth- and twenty-first century art, the "do-it-yourself" artwork raises broader issues concerning the role of the viewer in art, the status of the artwork, and the socio-political relations between art and its contexts.

    Before gaining recognition for his radical performance art, Vito Acconci experimented in the burgeoning downtown New York poetry scene. Collaborating with such future art world celebrities Sol LeWitt and Robert Smithson, Acconci would coedit an influential (but ultimately short-lived) experimental poetry and conceptual art magazine. Now, as part of Ugly Duckling Presse's Lost Literarture Series, the complete run of '0 to 9' is brought backinto print in its full mimeographed glory. Featuring works from 70 renowned artists and poets, readers can glimpse the first appearance of influential works as Sol LeWitt's 'Sentences on Conceptual Art' and more!

    This new gorgeous and diverse collection documents the exhibition 00 at the Barbara Gladstone Gallery in New York. For this exhibition, over one hundred prominent contemporary artists were asked to submit works on paper that were made this year--in '00'. 00 investigates the act of drawing as a vital necessity that transcends the bounds of age, nationality, scale, content, process, and concept. The richness of the medium is reflected by the diversity of the participating artists, who include: Acconci Studio, Kai Althoff, John Baldessari, Miroslaw Balka, Matthew Barney, John Bock, Louise Bourgeois, Cecily Brown, Vija Celmins, Francesco Clemente, Michael Craig-Martin, John Currin, Roy Dowell, Marlene Dumas, Carroll Dunham, Rachel Feinstein, Tim Gardner, April Gornik, Arturo Herrera, Gary Hume, Sol LeWitt, Anish Kapoor, Ellsworth Kelly, Yayoi Kusama, Mark Manders, Brice Marden, Chris Ofili, Elizabeth Peyton, Elle Phelan, Lari Pittman, Richard Prince, Charles Ray, Gregor Schneider, Richard Serra, Serse, Takashi Murakami, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Rosemarie Trockel, Kara Walker, Lawrence Weiner, and Christopher Wool. The resulting exhibition and its accompanying catalogue--including an illuminating essay by the curator and writer Klaus Kertess--act as a definitive survey of the practice of drawing at the present moment.

  • 10 Corso Como: A to Z

    By Carla Sozzani

    Carla Sozzani opened Galleria Carla Sozzani in September 1990 as a space for art, photography, and design housed in a converted garage at 10 Corso Como in Milan. Along with American artist Kris Ruhs, Sozzani created a space like no other. Rejecting ordinary retail norms, this concept store has always promoted a different philosophy—that of slow shopping, a succession of spaces and events that prioritize lifestyle over object acquisition. In this book, Sozzani describes her world: her style, personal taste, and opinions on fashion, travel, design, and lifestyle. The Galleria now incorporates a bookshop, a fashion and design store, and a garden café, and it is one of Milan’s hippest and most exquisitely curated spaces—a destination in itself. 10 Corso Como has become the nexus of a global network of cultural exchange through fashion, food, art, and photography that continues to inspire fashion and design. In recent years, two additional locations have been added: 10 Corso Como–Comme des Garçons in Tokyo in 2002 and a Seoul branch in 2008.
