Claes Oldenburg Drawings in the Whitney Museum of American Art
Janie C. Lee
0810968339
August 2002
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Pop artist Claes Oldenburg has long been one of the most popular American artists, and museumgoers worldwide are familiar with his soft sculptures of everyday objects. For the past four years, the Whitney Museum of American Art has been quietly acquiring his drawings, as well as those made with his wife and artistic partner, Coosje van Bruggen. Most major art museums have no more than 10 Oldenburg drawings in their holdings: the Whitney now has approximately 90-the largest such collection in the world. This assemblage of Oldenburg drawings is evidence of the museum's commitment to collecting in depth the work of great living American draftsmen. Published to accompany the largest exhibition to date of Oldenburg's drawings, this beautifully produced volume covers nearly a 40-year period, from 1959 to 1998, and features...

Book Description
Elizabeth Murray has radically altered the structure of modernist painting. Her shaped and constructed canvases, often topologically modeled in three dimensions or fitted together out of multiple jigsaw-like parts, treat figure and ground in unprecedented ways, giving the elastic shapes of classic Surrealism a space in their own image. The alternatively comfortable and cataclysmic world that her images depict would crack irrevocably if it followed Euclidean logic; instead; it constantly metamorphoses under stress. With a chaptered essay by Robert Storr, plate section, and in-depth interview, the book will explore Murray's relation to artists such as Joan Miró, Stuart Davis, Claes Oldenburg, and Frank Stella, as well as to the mainstream and opened up options for rising generations. This book accompanies the most...

Donald Judd, The Complete Writings 1959-1975: Gallery Reviews, Book Reviews, Articles, Letters To The Editor, Statements, Complaints
Donald Judd
0919616429
March 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Originally published in 1975, this collection of Donald Judd's writings is a sought-after classic. His uncompromising reviews avoid the familiar generalizations so often associated with artistic styles emerging during the 1950s and 60s. Here, Judd discusses in detail the work of more than 500 artists showing in New York at that time, and provides a critical account of this significant era in American art. While addressing the social and political ramifications of art production, the writings focus on the work of Jackson Pollock, Kasimir Malevich, Barnett Newman, Ad Reinhardt, John Chamberlain, Larry Poons, Kenneth Noland, and Claes Oldenburg. His 1965 "Specific Objects" essay, discussions of sculptural thought in the 60s, is included as well as Judd's notorious polemical essay, "Imperialism, Nationalism, Regionalism." ...


Raw Notes: Documents and Scripts of the Performances: Stars, Moveyhouse, Massage, The Typewriter, with annotations by the author

Paperback
·
 
Book Description
A giant spoon with an enormous red cherry snaking out of the earth, a humongous badminton birdie, an oversized piece of cake, squishy scupltures--these are some of the works for which Claes Oldenburg, the artist who helped redefine sculpture in the 1960s, is best known. However, because they have been less documented, Oldenburg's happenings and performances have not been fully integrated into the critical discourse surrounding his work. Raw Notes, originally published in 1973, collects all of the material relating to his performances. According to his specifications, the text in the book is typed rather then set, and appears on only one side of the page. Examples of the original manuscript are reproduced in 63 script plates. These include stage plans, scores, sketches for programs, and posters. More than 200...


Museum as Muse: Artists Reflect

Book Review
The Museum as Muse: Artists Reflect is the stunning catalog that accompanies an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art during the spring of 1999. The show takes an insightful look at the way different artists deal with the ideas, concepts, and criticisms of "the public museum." The collected artists span both generations and degrees of fame, from French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson to pop artist Claes Oldenburg to contemporary artists Gillian Wearing and Mark Dion. The show, and by extension the book, illustrates the impact that the invention of the museum (just 200 years ago) has had on art making. It is fascinating to peer through the eyes of individual artists whose personal and intimate visions are both outside of the museum and inextricably linked to it by their choice of career. The artwork in the exhibition is...


In Memory of My Feelings
Frank O'Hara

October 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Frank O'Hara began working at the front desk of The Museum of Modern Art in order to see the exhibitions as often as possible. During his lunch breaks he wrote poetry, sometimes pausing mid-meal to pen his seemingly effortless, spontaneous verses, which were stitched together from the events and sentiments of his daily life. These writings made him into one of the most important American poets of his generation. Eventually, he became an Associate Curator--even though he had no formal art training. Frank O'Hara: In Memory of My Feelings explores a key period in modern art, and highlights 30 artists who collaborated with O'Hara to produce "poem-paintings"--a single work of art paired with a single poem. The artists included Nell Blaine, Norman Bluhm, Joe Brainard, John Button, Giorgio Cavallon, Allan D'Arcangelo, Elaine...
