The Raven
Lou Reed
Sept 2003
Book Description
One of the most influential and innovative recording artists of the past three decades, Lou Reed has always offered a shrewd view of life in the big city in all its colors. It is no surprise, then, that he considers Edgar Allan Poe a spiritual forefather. In The Raven, Reed immerses himself in Poe's enigmatic world and sets out to reimagine his work to mesmerizing effect. In 2001 Lou Reed, legendary theater director Robert Wilson, and an all-star cast presented the musical POEtry at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Reed's subsequent studio adaptation, The Raven, has been hailed as one of his more daring and challenging albums. Here, accompanied by photographs by the acclaimed artist and director Julian Schnabel, is the definitive text of the CD release. The Raven includes Reed's distinctive takes on Poe's most celebrated...

Julian Schnabel
Julian Schnabel
Nov 2003
Book Review
Julian Schnabel burst on the neo-expressionist art scene of the early 1980s with huge, arresting paintings on collaged shards of smashed plates. A swaggering and contentious figure whose art no longer occupies center stage, he is probably best known today as a successful filmmaker. All the more reason, perhaps, for him to shore up his reputation by co-designing a mammoth book of his life and art. Julian Schnabel dispenses with commentary, except for the artist's own brief, broad-brushed introduction. Even the titles of his works are relegated to the illustrated index, which--despite Schnabel's proclivity for unconventional surfaces--omits any mention of media. Nearly 400 full-color reproductions trace Schnabel's output from 1976 to the present, interspersed with photographs of the artist, his family, and off-camera moments...

Twentieth-Century American Art
Erika Lee Doss
July 2002
Book Description
Jackson Pollock, Georgia O'Keeffe, Andy Warhol, Julian Schnabel, and Laurie Anderson are just some of the major American artists of the twentieth century. From the 1893 Chicago World's Fair to the 2000 Whitney Biennial, a rapid succession of art movements and different styles reflected the
extreme changes in American culture and society, as well as America's position within the international art world.

This exciting new look at twentieth century American art explores the relationships between American art, museums, and audiences in the century that came to be called the "American century". Extending beyond New York, it covers the emergence of Feminist art in Los Angeles in the 1970s; the Black art
movement; the expansion of galleries and art schools; and the highly political public controversies...

George Condo: One Hundred Women
George Condo
August 2005
Book Description
"A woman is something you can glorify, you can be horrified by, you can be paranoid in front of, you can love, you can hate." So says painter George Condo, not the first artist to have tackled the subject of Woman and certainly not the last. Nevertheless, Condo's particular brand of cartoonish figurative painting, with its equal debts to Surrealism, Pop Art, and painterly abstraction, has gone a long way to pushing the means through which Woman might be represented. Herewith are One Hundred Women, drawn, painted, and sculpted by the American artist--some of them nudes, some of them portraits, some of them part of large-scale art-historical collages. Each woman bears at least some trace of Condo's signature style, replete with animalistic grotesqueness and stylistic references to such modern masters as Goya, Velazquez,...

Unpackaging Art of the 1980s
Alison Pearlman
June 2003
The Art Book : "Alison Pearlman's account of New York art in the 1980s is a greatly overdue corrective to the dominant paradigms of critical postmodernism, releasing the debate on this pivotal era from a 'state of suspended cartoon animation'... Pearlman's book is crucial reading for anyone interested in American art and compulsory for anyone who has failed to comprehend the seismic shift in art's culture that has triumphed in the past 25 years."--The Art Book

Book Description
American art of the 1980s is as misunderstood as it is notorious. Critics of the time feared that market hype and self-promotion threatened the integrity of art. They lashed out at contemporary art, questioning the validity of particular media and methods and dividing the art into opposing camps. While...
