Girls' Night Out
Newport Beach, CA Orange County Museum of Art 2004 0917493362 / 9780917493362 First Edition Soft Cover Fine Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
134 pp., illus. (some col.), bib. notes; 28 cm. Catalogue of an exhibition held at the Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, Calif., Sept. 14, 2003-Jan. 25, 2004, at the Contemporary Art Museum, Saint Louis, Sept. 16-Dec. 31, 2005 and at the Blaffer Gallery, the art museum of the University of Houston, Jan. 21-Apr. 2, 2006, organized by the Orange County Museum of Art. Firm binding, clean inside copy. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. Richly illustrated with colour plates. Feminist artists explore the female and adolescent girl psyche. "Imagine a girls' night out with Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Elina Brotherus, Dorit Cypis, Rineke Dijkstra, Katy Grannan, Sarah Jones, Kelly Nipper, Daniela Rossell, Shirana Shahbazi, and Salla Tykka. Imagine a very particular kind of girl talk, one that crisscrosses generations and nations, that openly and fluidly recognizes gender differences and sexual necessities, that delves deeply into psychology and lyricism. A conversation that's moved beyond challenging or critiquing feminist archetypes--but knows how it got to that point, thank you early feminism. The women artists represented in this catalogue create works that possess a quasi-documentary feel and a directness of approach, that engage such classical representational subjects as landscape, portraiture, and self-portraiture. They acknowledge their predecessors, the feminist photography, film, and performance artists of the 70s and 80s, but have moved on to confidently explore feminist identity, especially in the adolescent girl, and produce imagery that is compellingly, and resoundingly, uncertain and contradictory." - Publisher. CONTENTS: Girl, Unmasked, by Elizabeth Armstrong; Girl, Unmarked, by Taru Elfving; Moving, by Bill Horrigan; The Artists, by Irene Hofmann.

Henry Darger
Munich and New York Prestel, in cooperation with the American Folk Art Museum 2009 379134210X / 9783791342108 1st Hardcover Very Good Fine Exhibition Catalogue Oblong 
Cloth, gilt, 319 pp., illus. (chiefly col.), biblio.; 27 x 34 cm. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Top edge lightly soiled. Fine DJ. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "Self-taught and working in isolation until his death in 1973, Henry Darger realized an elaborate fantasy world of remarkable beauty and strangeness, through hundreds of paintings and an epic written narrative. Angel-like Blengins with butterfly wings, natural catastrophes, innocent girls, and murderous soldiers all appear in Darger's scenes, which are reproduced in this book in double-page and gatefold spreads. In the volume's introductory essay, Klaus Biesenbach examines the radical originality of Darger's art, including his use of collage, incorporation of religious themes and iconography, and frequent juxtaposition of innocence with violence. An essay by Brooke Davis Anderson illuminates Darger's source materials and techniques. Michael Bonesteel puts Darger's life in the context of his work and selects key texts to accompany the illustrations. The book also includes for the first time the text of Darger's History of My Life, the artist's autobiography. The only book of its kind, Henry Darger offers an authoritative, balanced, and insightful look at an American master." - Publisher.

Not So Cute and Cuddly: Dolls and Stuffed Toys in Contemporary Art, Dunbar, Elizabeth (Curated by)

Not So Cute and Cuddly: Dolls and Stuffed Toys in Contemporary Art
Wichita, KS Ulrich Museum of Art 2003 1887883045 / 9781887883047 First Edition Soft Cover Fine Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
111 pp., col. illus., bib. notes; 28 cm. Exhibition held October 26 through December 24, 2003. Firm binding, clean inside copy. "'Not So Cute & Cuddly' focuses on a trend by contemporary artists to appropriate and transform objects from childhood to explore not only the darker side of youth but also address a host of serious, adult issues. Simultaneously challenging and fun, the exhibition brings together approximately 40 works by 20 international artists who use dolls, figurines, and stuffed toys to create diverse and complex meditations on memory and loss, the development of gender and cultural identities, as well as other topical social concerns. While much of the subtext of the works in the exhibition is directed at adults, 'Not So Cute & Cuddly' is also very accessible and engaging for the younger audience. All of the works included in 'Not So Cute & Cuddly' date from 1998 to the present and represent the vast range of artistic expression being used today, from the more traditional techniques of painting and sculpture to more experimental approaches in photography, video, and installation art. A timely survey of the pervasiveness of 'youthful' imagery in contemporary culture, the exhibition mixes media as well as both more established and emerging artists. 'Not So Cute & Cuddly' was organized by Elizabeth Dunbar, chief curator at the Ulrich Museum." - Publisher.
