Bruce Nauman: Disappearing Acts

#ad
The Museum of Modern Art, New York #ad - In 2009 he represented the united States at the Venice Biennale, where he won the Golden Lion. In 1979 he moved to New Mexico, where he continues to reside. A wide range of authors―curators, architecture and film―focus on topics that have been largely neglected, artists and historians of art, such as the architectural models that posit real or imaginary sites as models for ethical inquiry and mechanisms of control.

He studied math, and received an ma in sculpture from the University of California, music and physics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison before switching his major to visual art, Davis, in 1966. A narrative exhibition history traces his reception, and features a number of rare or previously unpublished images.

Bruce nauman was born in Indiana in 1941 and raised near Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Nauman’s work has been the subject of two previous retrospectives, in 1972 and 1994. An introductory essay explores Nauman’s many acts of disappearance, withdrawal and deflection as central formal and intellectual concerns.

Bruce Nauman: Disappearing Acts #ad - Throughout his 50-year career, space, he has explored how mutable experiences of time, sound, movement and language provide an insecure foundation for our understanding of our place in the world. This richly illustrated catalog offers a comprehensive view of Nauman’s work in all mediums, spanning drawings across the decades; early fiberglass sculptures; sound environments; architecturally scaled, participatory constructions; rhythmically blinking neons; and the most recent 3D video that harks back to one of his earliest performances.

The 18 other contributions discuss individual objects or themes that persist throughout the artist’s career, including the first extensive essay on Nauman as a photographer and the first detailed treatment on the role of color in his work.

Andy Warhol_From A to B and Back Again

#ad
Whitney Museum of American Art #ad - A unique 360‐degree view of an incomparable 20th-century american artist One of the most emulated and significant figures in modern art, Andy Warhol 1928–1987 rose to fame in the 1960s with his iconic Pop pieces. Donna de salvo explores how warhol’s work engages with notions of public and private, while a series of incisive and eye-opening essays by eminent scholars and contemporary artists touch on a broad range of topics, the redefinition of media, his international influence, such as Warhol’s response to the AIDS epidemic, and the role of abstraction, and how his work relates to constructs of self-image seen in social media today.

Andy Warhol_From A to B and Back Again #ad - It builds on a wealth of new research and materials that have come to light in recent decades and offers a rare and much-needed comprehensive look at the full scope of Warhol’s production—from his commercial illustrations of the 1950s through his monumental paintings of the 1980s.

Henry Taylor

#ad
Rizzoli Electa #ad - This definitive monograph celebrates Taylor's direct and revealing portraits, offering a tonic to a divisive cultural moment. Legendary artist henry Taylor's first major monograph chronicles his life and work--the "visual equivalent of the blues. This definitive survey of over 200 of the painter's portraits and street scenes forms a personal and political portrait of society today.

Contributions by charles gaines, rachel kaadzi Ghansah, and Zadie Smith touch on the nature of truth, Sarah Lewis, racial terror; memory and belonging in America. Flat, brushy flows of color cast figures that often float in surreal landscapes abstracted from the barbeque in the park, or neighboring street.

Henry Taylor #ad - It is the artist's empathetic eye that allows him to imagine his figures with authenticity and grace--not better than they are, or more glamorous--but part of a big, complicated world. For three decades the iconic artist has worked his way through New York, Europe, and Africa, Los Angeles, documenting what he sees.

In his circle are artists, performers, musicians, writers, as well as friends from his ten years as a psychiatric technician. Suites of taylor's paintings are reproduced alongside handwritten accounts of the sittings, offering an in-depth understanding of the artist's world.

Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future

#ad
Guggenheim Museum Publications #ad - The volume also delves into her unrealized plans for a spiral-shaped temple in which to display her art―a wish that finds a fortuitous answer in the Guggenheim Museum's rotunda, the site of the exhibition. Hilma af klint 1862–1944 is now regarded as a pioneer of abstract art. But only in recent decades has the public had a chance to reckon with af Klint's radically abstract painting practice―one which predates the work of Vasily Kandinsky and other artists widely considered trailblazers of modernist abstraction.

A roundtable discussion among contemporary artists, scholars and curators considers af Klint's sources and relevance to art in the 21st century. Though her paintings were not seen publicly until 1987, her work from the early 20th century predates the first purely abstract paintings by Kandinsky, Mondrian and Malevich.

Believing the world was not yet ready for her art, she stipulated that it should remain unseen for another 20 years. Hilma af klint's daring abstractions exert a mystical magnetismWhen Swedish artist Hilma af Klint died in 1944 at the age of 81, she left behind more than 1, 000 paintings and works on paper that she had kept largely private during her lifetime.

Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future #ad - Her boldly colorful works, reflect an ambitious, spiritually informed attempt to chart an invisible, many of them large-scale, totalizing world order through a synthesis of natural and geometric forms, textual elements and esoteric symbolism. Accompanying the first major survey exhibition of the artist's work in the United States, Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future represents her groundbreaking painting series while expanding recent scholarship to present the fullest picture yet of her life and art.

Essays explore the social, placing her in the context of Swedish modernism and folk art traditions, intellectual and artistic context of af Klint's 1906 break with figuration and her subsequent development, contemporary scientific discoveries, and spiritualist and occult movements.

Tomma Abts

#ad
Art Institute of Chicago #ad - 1967 has reinvigorated painterly abstraction and its relevance within contemporary art. This extraordinary book, designed in collaboration with the artist herself, is a substantial and deeply insightful treatment of her career to date and features sixty works made over the past decade. Essays not only contextualize abts’s work within an art-historical framework of methods, and style, process, but also examine her paintings’ philosophical and psychological dimensions and their embodiment of a creative process that transcends the specifics of any particular work.

   . Using a fixed canvas size and a vertical format, planes, circles, Abts deploys basic formal elements such as arcs, and stripes to create powerful works that are at once subtle and eccentric. Examines both the art-historical framework of Tomma Abts’s painting as well as its deep philosophical and psychological dimensions With a rigorous approach and self-imposed limitations to both scale and composition, Tomma Abts b.
