Colour After Klein: Rethinking Colour in Modern and Contemporary Art, Alison, Jane (Edited by)
3 Alison, Jane (Edited by)
Colour After Klein: Rethinking Colour in Modern and Contemporary Art
London Barbican Art Gallery; Black Dog Publishing 2005 1904772250 / 9781904772255 1st Paperback Fine Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
191 pp., illus. (mostly col.), bib. notes; 29 cm. Edited and Introduction by Jane Alison; Essay by Nuit Banai; Introductory Artist Texts by Jane Alison, Kathleen Madden, Alona Pardo; Texts by Donald Judd, Yves Klein, Hélio Oiticica. Published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same title held at the Barbican Art Gallery, London, May 26 to September 11, 2005. Firm binding, clean inside copy. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "Colour After Klein explores the use of colour in the work of 20 of the most influential contemporary artists. Through essays, artists profiles and personal writings by famous artists, this book provides new perspectives on the emotional, conceptual and aesthetic significance of colour. As suggested by the work of Yves Klein, this book is not about colour rules or colour theory; instead it takes pleasure in the oscillation between the aesthetic and the conceptual, materiality and immateriality, the object and the void, purification and mystification, and between erasure and colouring in. Colour is celebrated for its immanence, its quality of being in the world, but also the potential it has to open up a psychic space, a world of lost feeling; with literally the power to take us over, colour us in. Colour After Klein explores the significance of colour as it emerges in the work of 20 of the most influential artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, including Yves Klein, Donald Judd, Bruce Nauman, Louise Bourgeois, Andy Warhol and James Turrell. Featuring an introduction by curator Jane Alison, an essay that explores the place of colour in the work of Yves Klein by art historian Nuit Banai, and profiles of each of the contributing artists, this book provides a new perspective on key works of Modern and contemporary art. Also included in the book are artists' writings on the subject of colour, with pieces by Klein, Judd and Hélio Oiticica." - Publisher. Includes: Bas Jan Ader, Joseph Beuys, James Lee Byars, Louise Bourgeois, Sophie Calle, William Eggleston, Spencer Finch, Dan Flavin, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Mona Hatoum, Donald Judd, Anish Kapoor, Yves Klein, Bruce Nauman, Hélio Oiticica, Gerhard Richter, Pipilotti Rist, Anri Sala, James Turrell, Andy Warhol.

6 Andre, Carl; Meyer, James (Edited by)
Cuts: Texts, 1959-2004
Cambridge, MA MIT Press 2005 0262012154 / 9780262012157 1st Hardcover NEW Collectible 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
xxi, 317 pp., illus., biblio., index; 24 cm. BRAND NEW. Shrinkwrapped. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "Just as Carl Andre's sculptures are 'cuts' of elemental materials, his writings are condensed expressions, 'cuts' of language that emphasize the part rather than the whole. Andre, a central figure in minimalism and one of the most influential sculptors of our time, does not produce the usual critical essay. He has said that he is 'not a writer of prose,' and the texts included in Cuts -- the most comprehensive collection of his writings yet published -- appear in a wide variety of forms that are pithy and poetic rather than prosaic. Some texts are statements, many of them fifty words or less, written for catalog entries and press releases. Others are Socratic dialogues, interwoven statements, or in the form of questionnaires and interviews. Still others are letters -- public and private, lengthy missives and postcards. Some are epigrams and maxims (for example, on Damian Hirst: I DON'T FEAR HIS SHARK. I FEAR HIS FORMALDEHYDE) and some are planar poems, words and letters arranged and rearranged into different patterns. They are organized alphabetically by subject, under such entries as 'Art and Capitalism,' 'Childhood,' 'Entropy (After Smithson),' 'Matter,' 'My Work,' 'Other Artists,' and 'Poetry,' and they include Andre's reflections on Michelangelo and Duchamp, on Stein and Marx, and such contemporaries as Eva Hesse, Robert Smithson, Robert Morris, and Damien Hirst. Carl Andre's writing and its materiality -- its stress on the visual and tactile qualities of language -- takes its place beside his sculpture and its materiality, its revelation of 'matter as matter rather than matter as symbol.' Both assert the ethical and political primacy of matter in a culture that prizes the replica, the insubstantial, and the virtual. 'I am not an idealist as an artist,' says Andre. 'I try to discover my visions in the conditions of the world. It's the conditions which are important.' / Carl Andre is a sculptor and poet. James Meyer is Associate Professor of Art History at Emory University. He is the author of Minimalism: Art and Polemics in the Sixties and the editor of The AIDS Crisis is Ridiculous and Other Writings 1986-2003 by Gregg Bordowitz (MIT Press, 2004)." - Publisher.

Catalogue of an exhibition held at the Museum, January to April 1988; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, June to August 1988; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, September 1988 to January 1989. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Light shelfwear to wraps, age toning. First paperback edition. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. Richard Artschwager, the American painter and sculptor, has always been hard to categorize. In the sixties, he was neither a Pop artist nor a Minimalist, although he was often discussed in the contexts of both. By the 1980s, however, his work seemed extremely prophetic of the emerging Neo-Geo generation. His use of formica, for example--a synthetic simulacrum of wood--found an echo in a younger group of "postmodern" artists who were interested in critiquing "nature" and "originality," among other bromides of received wisdom. This is a well-illustated survey of his work.

James Coleman
Cambridge, MA MIT Press; October Files 5 2003 0262523418 / 9780262523417 Paperback Very Good 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
vi, 213 pp., illus., bib. notes, index; 23 cm. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. Remainder mark/tail edge. "James Coleman has emerged in recent years as one of the most important artists of visual postmodernism. His work has transformed critical debates about the status of the image in contemporary culture and influenced an entire generation of younger artists in ways that have not yet been fully acknowledged. Until recently, Coleman has enjoyed relatively little critical attention -- in part because of his refusal to comment on his projects or to allow his work to be reconstructed outside of the context of its exhibition. The illustrated essays in this book span the entirety of Coleman's career to date, from his early postminimal and conceptual experiments with memory and perception, through his work in film, video, and narrative in the 1980s, to his current ongoing series of slide projections with voice-over that he calls simply 'projected images.' Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the debates induced by Coleman's work, the essays discuss issues of subjectivity and identity, nationalism, postcolonialism, memory, spectacle culture, digitalization, and new media. The contributors are Raymond Bellour, Benjamin Buchloh, Lynne Cooke, Jean Fisher, Luke Gibbons, Rosalind Krauss, Anne Rorimer, and Kaja Silverman. Written by curators, critics, and scholars and spanning the fields of art history, literary criticism, philosophy, and film theory, the essays attest to the interdisciplinary challenge of Coleman's work. George Baker is Assistant Professor of Art History at UCLA." - Publisher.

Jannis Kounellis, Bann, Stephen
18 Bann, Stephen
Jannis Kounellis
London Reaktion Books 2003 1861891520 / 9781861891525 1st Paperback NEW 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
208 pp., illus. (some col.), biblio.; 28 cm. BRAND NEW. Shrinkwrapped. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "Over the past 40 years, sculptor and installation artist Jannis Kounellis has established himself as a unique presence in the world of contemporary art. His work, whether included in temporary exhibitions or placed in semi-permanent installations, invariably lingers in the memory because of its forceful character and its ability to transform its immediate environment. Stephen Bann refers to Kounellis's working practice as a process of 'making strange.' In all his installations, the material impact of the work sets off a trail of associations. Potent examples include his 1969 installation of twelve tethered live horses in a gallery in Rome, the city where the prototypes of the equestrian monuments of Antiquity can still be seen, or his 1975 Civil Tragedy installation in which a hat-stand with black hat and coat against a gold-leaf background lit by a small lamp recalled the café society of Central Europe against a wall of Byzantine splendour. As an artist, Kounellis has found his special location in Rome. At the age of 20, he made the journey there from Piraeus, the ancient port of Athens, and began his career. His works continue to bear the hallmarks of his Eastern Mediterranean origin, as well as testifying to his concern with the links between Russian Modernism and the Byzantine tradition. Stephen Bann has not set out to write a conventional monograph about the artist. Rather, he looks at the underlying mechanisms in Kounellis's practice, suggesting the ways in which they are important in the broader context of late modernist art. He outlines the distinctive way in which Kounellis takes account of space as a necessary preliminary to working within it, and discusses the historical and cultural dimension to which Kounellis lays claim. / Stephen Bann is Professor in the Department of History of Art at the University of Bristol. He has published widely in the field of contemporary art. He is co-editor of Interpreting Contemporary Art (Reaktion, 1991), editor of Frankenstein, Creation and Monstrosity (Reaktion, 1994) and author of Romanticism and the Rise of History (1995) and Paul Delaroche: History Painted (Reaktion, 1997)." - Publisher.

19 Barron, Stephanie, and Bernstein, Sheri, and Fort, Ilene Susan
Made in California: Art, Image, and Identity, 1900-2000
Los Angeles and Berkeley Los Angeles County Museum of Art; University of California Press 2000 0520227654 / 9780520227651 Paperback Very Good Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
351 pp., illus. (some col.), biblio., index; 32 cm. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Superficial dampstain at the end (slight ripple; pages don't stick). OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "This opulent and expansive volume, published in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's monumental exhibition Made in California: Art, Image, and Identity,1900-2000, charts the dynamic relationship between the arts and popular conceptions of California. Displaying a dazzling array of fine art and material culture, Made in California challenges us to reexamine the ways in which the state has been portrayed and imagined. Unusually inclusive, visually intriguing, and beautifully produced, this volume is a delight throughout--both in image and in text--and will appeal to anyone who has lived in, visited, or imagined California. Drawn from the exhibition, which gathers more than 1,200 artworks and pieces of ephemera from many public and private collections, Made in California is an image-driven look at the past century, featuring more than 400 works in a range of media, from painting, sculpture, prints, drawings, and photographs to furniture, fashion, and film. The book also includes more than 150 cultural artifacts such as tourist brochures, posters, labor union tracts, personal letters, and government reports that convey the richness and complexity of twentieth-century California. Arranged provocatively by theme, these objects take us on a visual tour of a state that was promoted as a bountiful paradise early in the century as a glamour capital by Hollywood in the 1920s and 1930s as a suburban utopia in the late '40s and '50s as a haven for counterculture in the '60s and '70s, and as a multicultural frontier in the '80s and '90s. The book's exploration of how these themes were reflected and contested in California's visual culture deepens our understanding of the state's artistic traditions as well as its fascinating history. The volume is divided into five twenty-year sections, each including a narrative essay discussing the history of that era and highlighting topics particularly relevant to its visual culture. Two overarching themes emerge that have been crucial for how we imagine and understand California: first, the landscape, including both the natural and built environment, and second, the multifaceted relationships California has had with Latin America and Asia. Geographer Michael Dear has contributed a sweeping overview of the social history of California that examines the vibrant and sometimes turbulent conditions out of which the culture emerged. Essayist Richard Rodriguez closes the volume with a uniquely personal meditation on the Golden State. / 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.
