Marina Abramovic: Performing Body, Abramovic, Marina, and Denegri, Dobrila
1 Abramovic, Marina, and Denegri, Dobrila
Marina Abramovic: Performing Body
Milan Charta 1998 8881581604 / 9788881581603 Soft Cover Fine 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
47 pp., illus. (some col.); 27 cm. Text in English and Italian. AS NEW. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "This book records Marina Abramovic’s return to Rome after an absence of twenty years and is dedicated to some of the artist’s performances which are among the most significant ones in her creative development. After the sound installations of the early 1970’s, she increasingly felt that her body was to be involved in her art; and moved towards Body Art almost unconsciously, to the point that today she cannot but express her art through this language." - Publisher.

I Never Knew What Time It Was, Antin, David
2 Antin, David
I Never Knew What Time It Was
Berkeley, CA University of California Press 2005 0520243056 / 9780520243057 1st Paperback Fine Collectible 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall SIGNED
xi, 175 pp.; 21 cm. SIGNED and dated by the author in the year of publication. First paperback edition. A fine copy. "In this series of intricately related texts, internationally known poet, critic, and performance artist David Antin explores the experience of time--how it's felt, remembered, and recounted. These free-form talk pieces--sometimes called talk poems or simply talks--began as improvisations at museums, universities, and poetry centers where Antin was invited to come and think out loud. Serious and playful, they move rapidly from keen analysis to powerful storytelling to passages of pure comedy, as they range kaleidoscopically across Antin's experiences: in the New York City of his childhood and youth, the Eastern Europe of family and friends, and the New York and Southern California of his art and literary career. The author's analysis and abrasive comedy have been described as a mix of Lenny Bruce and Ludwig Wittgenstein, his commitment to verbal invention and narrative as a fusion of Mark Twain and Gertrude Stein. Taken together, these pieces provide a rich oral history of and critical context for the evolution of the California art scene from the 1960s onward. / David Antin is Professor Emeritus of Visual Arts at the University of California, San Diego. Among his most recent books are A Conversation with David Antin (2002), what it means to be avant-garde (1993), and Selected Poems: 1963-1973 (1991)." - Publisher.

The Cabaret, Appignanesi, Lisa
5 Appignanesi, Lisa
The Cabaret
New Haven, CT Yale University Press 2004 0300105800 / 9780300105803 Revised and Expanded Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine Collectible 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
Cloth, gilt, ix, 265 pp., illus. (some col.), ports., biblio., index; 25 cm. AS NEW. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "This captivating book presents a uniquely comprehensive cultural history of cabaret, where the most radical of artists, poets, writers, musicians, and theater directors have gathered since 1881. Lisa Appignanesi takes us to the original cabaret - the smoke-filled rooms of the Chat Noir in Paris that served as a meeting place for the avant-garde and a laboratory of subversion against the establishment. She then follows the journey of the cabaret across Europe and to the United States, tracing each development in cabaret history to the present day. This much revised and updated edition of Appignanesi's classic work is enriched with materials that have become more accessible in the post-Soviet era. It also features a variety of new illustrations from both East and West. The book provides a lively look at all aspects of cabaret, where art and entertainment join to mock and provoke, and where radical artistic, literary, and political ideas have found expression for more than 120 years. / Lisa Appignanesi is a writer and broadcaster. She is the author of many books, widely translated, including the acclaimed Freud's Women (with John Forrester), a portrait of Simone de Beauvoir, the highly praised memoir Losing the Dead, and the novel The Memory Man, as well as such best-selling thrillers as Sanctuary and The Dead of Winter. She has made and presented a variety of programs for radio and television in Great Britain and France. She is a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres." - Publisher.

Body and the East: From the 1960s to the Present
Cambridge, MA, and Ljubljana MIT Press; Museum of Modern Art 1998 0262522640 / 9780262522649 First Edition Soft Cover Fine Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
192 pp., illus.; 26 cm. 1000 copies printed. Firm binding, clean inside copy. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. Documents performance and body art in Eastern Europe. A major contribution. With essays by Joseph Backstein, Iara Boubnova, Jurij Krpan, Ileana Pintilie, Kristine Stiles, Branka Stipancic, Igor Zabel, and others. "The earliest 'body art' was created in Eastern Europe in the early 1960s. The term 'body art' includes a wide range of practices in which the artist's own body is the bearer of social, political, metaphorical, and philosophical content. This book includes essays on eighty artists from fourteen countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, the former GDR, Hungary, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Yugoslavia. Introductory essays by Zdenka Badovinac and Kristine Stiles discuss the tradition of an art form that emerged during socialism in cultural centers such as Prague, Belgrade, Ljubljana, Warsaw, and Zagreb. In these places public actions, particularly on the street, were often banned--and artists arrested--by the police. Therefore many of the actions documented here took place in private apartments, with the artists performing at great personal risk. The art survived not only despite the absence of any art market, but also despite its marginalization by political regimes. The artists turned their marginalization to an advantage, creating art out of the contingencies and necessities of survival. The art represented here reminds us of the psychological and intellectual freedoms that artistic expression affords under politically repressive conditions. This bilingual (Slovenian/English) book was originally published in conjunction with a major retrospective exhibition of body art held last year at the Museum of Modern Art in Ljubljana. Some of the artists, such as Marina Abramovic and Komar & Melamid, are well known internationally. Others, such as Alexander Brener, Sanja Ivekovic, Laibach, Paul Neagu, and Marko Peljhan, are known to special audiences in the East and West." - Publisher.

Mary Lucier, Barlow, Melinda (Edited by)
12 Barlow, Melinda (Edited by)
Mary Lucier
Baltimore, MD Johns Hopkins University Press; A PAJ Book 2001 0801863805 / 9780801863806 Trade Paperback Fine 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
xii, 280 pp., illus., bib. notes; 24 cm. AS NEW. Video artist. Includes a selection of Lucier's previously unpublished writings and drawings, along with essays, reviews, interviews, and photographs of her installations and performances. ""I arrived at video through performance, sculpture, photography, theater, music--mediums that evolve in time, involve a frame, and are three-dimensional. A video installation deals with time and space and placement and framing, sound, picture, movement, stillness--but in a single medium." --Mary Lucier. "Internationally recognized for her visually elegant, thought-provoking video art, Mary Lucier was a sculptor, photographer, and performance artist before she turned to video in 1973. In Mary Lucier, the first book published on Lucier's work, Melinda Barlow brings together a selection of Lucier's previously unpublished writings and drawings along with essays, reviews, interviews, and photographs of her ephemeral installations and performances to create an absorbing portrait of one of America's most accomplished video pioneers. Since 1970, when Lucier exhibited her first series of photographs in New York, she has been intriguing viewers with an aesthetic that perceives humanity and technology as equally organic, one whose unique blend of conceptual rigor and sensual lyricism is as compelling as it is deeply moving. Whether exploring the limitations of video technology, investigating America's complex relation to landscape, or examining how people in different places survive catastrophe, Lucier's work has been concerned with the most basic human issues: the cycles of birth, death, and regeneration the necessity of memory and the inevitability of decay. / Melinda Barlow is an assistant professor of film studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder. She is currently at work on a full-length study of the video installations of Mary Lucier." - Publisher.

William Pope.L: The Friendliest Black Artist in America
Cambridge, MA MIT Press 2003 0262025337 / 9780262025331 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Fine Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
Cloth, gilt, 237 pp., col. illus.; 26 cm. Edges stained green. Ribbon book mark. Exhibition schedule, July 26-October 17, 2002, Institute of Contemporary Art at Maine College of Art, Portland, Me. and others. Firm binding, clean inside copy. First 4 leaves slightly creased. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "The artist William Pope.L, who teaches at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, has been producing some of the most original visual and performing art in America for many years. But it was not until the Acting Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts overturned the recommendations of the NEA's own advisory panel to support this publication and the exhibition it accompanies that Pope.L became the subject of feature articles in the nation's major newspapers. Pope.L became a cause célèbre as a result of the scandal, but he deserved to be known long before that. His work is humane, accessible, profound, and humorous; it is also deeply challenging and self-aware. It is neither an accident nor a joke that his business card reads 'Friendliest Black Artist in America.' Many of Pope.L's pieces take place on the street. He has eaten and regurgitated copies of The Wall Street Journal, tied himself to a bank door and handed out money (a sort of reverse panhandler), crawled up the Bowery wearing a business suit, and walked down 125th Street in Harlem wearing a 12-foot white cardboard phallus. Although he frequently deals with racial issues, his work confounds preconceptions of what 'black art' should be. This book, which accompanies a nationally touring exhibition of Pope.L's work, explores his impact on American art and culture. It contains sections on practices, body, performance, dialogue, consumption, and a selection of the artist's writings and a chronology. The essays are by Mark H. C. Bessire, Suzanne Preston Blier, C. Carr, Geoffrey Hendricks, Stuart Horodner, Lowery Stokes Sims, Kristine Stiles, and Martha Wilson. / Mark H. C. Bessire is Director of the Bates College Museum of Art in Lewiston, Maine." - Publisher. CONTENTS: Foreword, by Mark H. C.
