Architect's Brother, The

Robert ParkeHarrison

2000    136 pages    (Twin Palms Publishers)

LCC: TR654 .P28 2000

I want to make images that have open, narrative qualities, enought to suggest ideas about human limits. I want there to be a combination of the past juxtaposed with the modern. I use nature to symbolize the search, saving a tree, watering the earth. In this fabricated world, strange clouds of smog float by; there are holes in the sky. These mythic images mirror our world, where nature is domesticated, controlled, and destroyed. Through my work I explore technology and a poetry of existence. [...]

I want to make images that have open, narrative qualities, enought to suggest ideas about human limits. I want there to be a combination of the past juxtaposed with the modern. I use nature to symbolize the search, saving a tree, watering the earth. In this fabricated world, strange clouds of smog float by; there are holes in the sky. These mythic images mirror our world, where nature is domesticated, controlled, and destroyed. Through my work I explore technology and a poetry of existence. These can be very heavy, overly didactic issues to convey in art, so I choose to portray them through a more theatrically absurd approach. Robert ParkeHarrison [less]

Charles Ray

Charles Ray, Paul Schimmel, Lisa Phillips

1998    119 pages    (Museum of Contemporary Art)

LCC: N6537 .R39 A4 1998

Ever since the early 1970s, sculptor Charles Ray's protean practice has yielded some of the most memorable objects and experiences in contemporary art, causing us to confront, as Peter Schjeldahl has written, "elegant, deadpan fabrications that flip wild switches in our minds." In 1987's "Ink Line," for example, he sent a single stream of ink flowing to the middle of a gallery's floor in a slender column; outside the 1993 Whitney Biennial he parked a massive replica of a toy fire engine. His [...]

Ever since the early 1970s, sculptor Charles Ray's protean practice has yielded some of the most memorable objects and experiences in contemporary art, causing us to confront, as Peter Schjeldahl has written, "elegant, deadpan fabrications that flip wild switches in our minds." In 1987's "Ink Line," for example, he sent a single stream of ink flowing to the middle of a gallery's floor in a slender column; outside the 1993 Whitney Biennial he parked a massive replica of a toy fire engine. His recent work is just as alluring and unsettling: a steel sculpture of a handheld bird, a poster of an ominous pumpkin, an intricate cast aluminum sculpture of a tractor. Charles Ray surveys the work the artist has made in the past dozen years; an interview by Michael Fried and an essay by John Kelsey complement texts written about each work by Ray himself. [less]

Creamier: Contemporary Art in Culture, is the 5th addition to Phaidon?s world renowned Cream series. Every few years, Phaidon brings together 10 illustrious curators to choose 100 of the art world?s best and most important emerging contemporary artists, and what they discover becomes an invaluable resource in an ever-changing art world. As has proven to be the case with those featured in the previous four Cream books, these will be the 100 artists the world is talking about for years to come.Valued by art collectors and art lovers alike as a road map through the ever expanding international art scene of gallery shows, museum exhibitions, biennials, and fairs, the Cream series is a must-have for anyone interested in the art world?s latest news and is an excellent introduction to the dialogue among some of its best minds. The introduction features a conversation between the ten curators discussing one of the art world?s hottest topics ? the recession and how it has impacted the market and artist creativity.Bound on high quality paper, printed to resemble broadsheet newspaper format, Creamier is packed in a custom-made box. The irony of the very latest news contained in a traditional, some would argue vanishing, format is intriguing. Readers are left to question the fluidity of the art world where an artist?s work can be fresh and new for such a short time, but where it never becomes insignificant. [less]

Women of Allah

Shirin Neshat

1999    38 pages    (Distributed Art Pub Inc (Dap))

LCC: TR681 .W6 N47 1997

From the essay by Hamid Dabashi: "There is a palpable energy in Shirin Neshat's photographs, an almost tangible seduction obviating the violence it borders, deeply rooted in the historical culture she would ultimately have to call 'home.' As an artist living in New York and from there addressing a global audience, Shirin Neshat quietly corrodes the most violent metaphysical imperative assumptions about the nature and function of an 'Islamic' femininity.

From the essay by Hamid Dabashi: "There is a palpable energy in Shirin Neshat's photographs, an almost tangible seduction obviating the violence it borders, deeply rooted in the historical culture she would ultimately have to call 'home.' As an artist living in New York and from there addressing a global audience, Shirin Neshat quietly corrodes the most violent metaphysical imperative assumptions about the nature and function of an 'Islamic' femininity. Enduring assumptions of what constitutes an 'Islamic woman' are at once domestic to that culture and colonially crafted on it. With a singular strike of creative genius, Shirin Neshat manages to target both of these divergent yet colliding agents. The history of Shirin Neshat's bodily portrayals of this 'Islamic woman' is the unwritten chronicle of a mute and concealed femininity. Her photographs show and tell what has been forbidden to show and tell. That she manages to do this without violating the bodily codes of an 'Islamic woman' marks the site of her creative imagination." [less]

In his latest book, writer, photographer, musician, and former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne has created an extraordinary document and critique of the times we live in. Your Action World parodies the "inspirational" promotional materialsincluding books, tapes, and corporate advertising - with which we are inundated daily. Byrne's impulse is to fight back, "to stem the tide of images and bullying texts that assault all of us, by building dikes and dams of my own images and texts. To understand the enemy I must become one with the enemy, I must be of one mind with the enemy. I must infect myself in order to be immunized." An intelligent, quirky document from one of our most innovative artistswith a cool debossed PVC cover and 4-color stickerYour Action World will be the cult hit of the season. [less]
