    In his photographs, Gregory Crewdson presents artfully condensed stories that essentially deal with the penetration of the mysterious into normalcy. Images of domestic scenes show something familiar yet unsettling, different, and somewhat disturbing. In Freudian terms, the uncanny, transforming the `reality expectation' into that which the photographer desires. Crewdson goes to great lengths in dramatizing his disturbing suburban scenes, deploying means more typical of Hollywood film production: the use of elaborate lighting, cranes, props, & extras. Includes works from the recent 'Beneath the Roses' series. 131 color photos.

    Contrary to popular reports, painting did not die in 1965, replaced by newer artistic mediums. In fact, the artistic and political freedoms of New York in the late 1960s and early 1970s not only made room for Performance art, video, and Conceptual art, but they revitalized painting as well. Painters moved beyond the boundaries of traditional easel painting, introducing such diverse interests and experiences as photography,sculpture, music, crafts, carpentry, psychedelic drugs, non-Western cultures, language theory, and even geodesic domes. Published on the occasion of the exhibition @National Academy Museum/NYC/2007. Addenda. Illus. 176p.

  • Since '45: America and the Making of Contemporary Art

    For the USA, 1945 was a victory not over only the Axis powers, but over the hegemony of European power and culture too. This book explores how, since then, American social and artistic history has shaped what we know as contemporary art, and how American art has responded to the unique cultural conditions of recent times.For fifty years following World War II, New York was the capital of art, influencing artists well beyond the USA. As Katy Siegel argues, since America lacked the European traditions underlying art, American art instead responded to extreme social conditions native to the country. Artists' preoccupations ranged across a broad spectrum that encompassed issues of race, mass culture, the individual, suburbia, apocalypse, and nuclear destruction, and Since '45 discusses how these themes came to find their place in art. Siegel's narrative moves fluidly from discussion of the art world ù artists, works, museums, galleries ù over the decades to cultural influences and momentous historical events. Rather than arguing on nationalist grounds, or viewing American culture as representative of a now-devalued nation, Siegel explores how that culture not only shaped art practice in the U.S., but created conditions that now, after the full globalization of the art world, affect artists in every continent.
