2 Barron, Stephanie, and Bernstein, Sheri, and Fort, Ilene Susan (Joint Editors)
Reading California: Art, Image and Identity, 1900-2000
Los Angeles and Berkeley Los Angeles County Museum of Art; University of California Press 2000 0520227670 / 9780520227675 Paperback NEW Exhibition Catalogue 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
415 pp., illus., bib. notes, index; 25 cm. Published in conjunction with the exhibition "Made in California" held Oct. 22, 2000-Mar. 18, 2001. BRAND NEW. Shrinkwrapped. "This companion volume to the exhibition Made in California: Art, Image, and Identity, 1900-2000 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art offers in-depth, illustrated essays on the making of California culture in the twentieth century. Written by a stellar cast of art historians and scholars in the humanities, the essays look closely at the forces that shaped fine art and material culture in California. The contributors weave their subjects around themes that are central to the milestone exhibition: the California landscape--both the natural and built environments--and the state's cultural and political relationships with Latin America and Asia. These provocative essays cover topics such as counterculture architecture, Watts Towers, border culture, identity and gender issues, the role of schools in California art, auto tourism, Hollywood, music, Beat culture, politics, literature, photography, and much more. Accessibly written and intellectually engaging, these essays sharpen our understanding of California in the twentieth century and bring together many diverse, yet interrelated, aspects of its art and culture. / Stephanie Barron is Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art and Vice President of Education and Public Programs at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Sheri Bernstein is Exhibition Associate. Ilene Susan Fort is Curator of American Art. Howard N. Fox is Curator of Contemporary Art. Michael Dear is Director of the University of Southern California's Southern California Studies Center and author most recently of The Postmodern Urban Condition (2000). Richard Rodriguez is author of Days of Obligation (1992) and Hunger of Memory (1982), and is a frequent contributor to Harper's, The New York Times, and The News Hour on PBS." - Publisher.

Dictee, Cha, Theresa Hak Kyung

Dictee
Berkeley, CA University of California Press 2001 0520231120 / 9780520231122 Paperback Very Good 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
179, [2] pp., illus., 1 map; 21 cm. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. Small corner crease/front cover. An artist's book by the gifted Korean-American conceptual artist. "Dictee is the best-known work of the versatile and important artist Theresa Hak Kyung Cha (1951-1982). A classic work of autobiography that transcends the self, Dictee is the story of several women: the Korean revolutionary Yu Guan Soon, Joan of Arc, Demeter and Persephone, Cha's mother Hyung Soon Huo (a Korean born in Manchuria to first-generation Korean exiles), and Cha herself. The element that unites these women is suffering and the transcendence of suffering. The book is divided into nine parts structured around the Greek Muses. Cha deploys a variety of texts, documents, images, and forms of address and inquiry to explore issues of dislocation and the fragmentation of memory. The result is a work of power, complexity, and enduring beauty." - Publisher. Theresa Hak Kyung Cha was born in 1951 in Pusan, Korea, and grew up in Korea, Hawaii, and Northern California. She received bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of California, Berkeley, and did postgraduate work in Paris. Her studies in literature, theory, performance art, and filmmaking influenced her varied output as an artist. In 1982, Cha was murdered by a stranger in New York City, just a few days after the original publication of Dictee. See also: "The Dream of the Audience: Theresa Hak Kyung Cha (1951-1982)."
