    A unique exhibition in a book, presenting challenging art that deals with the place and function of autobiography in the contemporary world. Art Works: An exciting new series celebrating the vitality and diversity of art in the twenty-first century. Not only is money central to our daily existence, it also controls the very way societies organize themselves. It's small wonder then that artists engage with this most powerful of social forces and address the many ways it impacts on our lives. Arranged into themed "rooms," the book reflects a wide variety of artistic attitudes and practices. Some artists depict or use real money directly in their work, while others explore its more abstract aspects, such as the way it circulates around the globe. Some make highly expensive objects from valuable materials or produce sculptural copies of luxury goods; others go in the opposite direction, toward the amateurish and the handmade, to question the idea of monetary value. Some present art as a usable consumer product like any other, making work that is almost indistinguishable from furniture or architecture, while others produce art about the business of buying and selling commodities, including the commodity of art itself. All of the artists in this book use art to figure out the complicated ways in which money functions in the world of getting and spending. All of them help us understand the world in which we live. 200 illustrations, 180 in color.

    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.

    An in-depth study of artist Jeff Koons's entire oeuvre to date. From kinky to kitsch to conceptual, Koons's art is anything but conformist. Stirring the art world in the 1980s with his unapologetic basketball sculptures & stainless steel toy blow-ups, Koons has been regarded as something of an 'enfant terrible', a reputation confirmed in the early 90s via works depicting him having sex with then wife Cicciolina, the Italian porn star/politician. This exhaustive monograph begins with an interview conducted by Ingrid Sischy that puts the Koons oeuvre in context. Arranged in chronological chapters. Addenda. Illus. 606p.

    Taking Helen Frankenthaler's 1950s New York debut as its starting point, "The heroine Paint": After Frankenthaler, a new publication edited by Katy Siegel, follows Frankenthaler's own painting as well as the immediate influence of Frankenthaler's work on other artists, tracing artistic currents gathered under her name as they move outwards in different directions over time. The book collects scholarly essays, texts from contemporary artists, reprints of historical writing, and interweaves these voices with a visual chronology that locates key works from performances, publications, and cultural ephemera for over seven decades.“The heroine Paint”: After Frankenthaler will offer a wealth of historical information and promises to be an important resource for young artists, as well as critics, curators, and art historians of modern and contemporary art. The wealth of archival imagery from cultural as well as artistic sources, and the elegance of the writing promise to make the book accessible and compelling as well to a general art audience.
