Interpreting Contemporary Art

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=475092&cjsku=475092...
The interpretation of contemporary art has always presented the critic with the hardest challenge; yet today, as new and often bewildering trends and movements come to the fore with dizzying speed, a critical engagement with the works of our own time is particularly vital. Each contributor to Interpreting Contemporary Art has looked at his chosen painting, sculpture, photograph or installation with a conviction that the work's own importance can be enhanced by what is written about it. From the French critic Marcelin Pleynet, writing about a painting by Robert Motherwell, to the English artist and critic Victor Burgin, who chooses a photograph by Helmut Newton, the range of contributions covers a broad international field, touching upon virtually all the most significant art-forms of the present day. Anyone seeking a greater substance in writings on the art of the last two decades, going beyond the major critical orthodoxies of recent years, and who wishes to understand more about the profound links which unite the art of our own period with that of the past, will find this book full of invaluable insights into the kaleidoscope of contemporary art.

Contemporary British Art

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1075008&cjsku=1075008...
The last few decades have been among the most dynamic within recent British cultural history. Artists across all genres and media have developed and re-fashioned their practice against a radically changing social and cultural landscape both national and global. This book takes a fresh look at some of the themes, ideas and directions which have informed British art since the later 1980s through to the first decade of the new millennium. In addition to discussing some iconic images and examples, it also looks more broadly at the contexts in which a new post-conceptual' generation of artists, those typically born since the late 1950s and 1960s have approached and developed aspects of their professional practice. Contemporary British Art is an ideal introduction to the field. To guide the reader, the book is organised around genres or related practices painting; sculpture and installation; and film, video and performance. The first chapterexplores aspects of the contemporary art market and some of the contexts within which art is made, supported and exhibited. The chapters that discuss various genres of art practice also mention books that may be useful to support further reading. Extensively illustrated with a wide range of work (both known, and less well-known) from artists such as Chris Ofili, Rachel Whiteread, Damien Hirst, Banksy, Anthony Gormley, Jack Vettriano, Sam Taylor-Wood, Steve McQueen and Tracey Emin, and many more.

Contemporary French Art 2

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=713103&cjsku=713103...
Grard Garouste, Colette Debl, Georges Rousse, Genevive Asse, Martial Raysse, Christian Jaccard, Jol Kermarrec, Danile Perronne, Daniel Dezeuze, Philippe Favier, Daniel Nadaud: after the eleven essays of Contemporary French Art 1, devoted to major artists from Ben Vautier and Niki de Saint Phalle to Annette Messager and Grard Titus-Carmel, the present volume pursues its interrogations of the what, the how and the why of contemporary plastic production of some of France's finest practitioners. If, as ever, such production can reveal elements of an interweaving of individualized preoccupations and modes, endless specificities demarcate and affirm originalities that pure theory and its leveling anonymity may obscure. Thus is it that Grard Garouste is alone in that obsession with indianness' and classicalness'; that Colette Debl's gesture is drawn implacably to the unseenness of female representation; that Georges Rousse plunges photography into the realm of matter's poetic sacredness; that Genevive Asse traverses a pure seemingness of abstraction to attain to an intimacy of silence; that Martial Raysse's hygiene of vision' may endlessly renew and hybridize itself. Christian Jaccard, too, will explore with uniqueness an art of materiality at the frontier of metaphysics; Jol Kermarrec will offer us the inimitable exquisite traces of surging desire and deception; Danile Perronne's boxes and stringings, her paintings and her sheetings will unfold a psychic infinity at the heart of form. And, if Daniel Dezeuze seeks namelessness and pure structuration, the latter yet surge forth via works that relentlessly identify a gesture so distant, we may feel, from the at once sobering and ceremonial microproliferations of a Philippe Favier or the tense but genial articulations of Daniel Nadaud's sculptural imagination.
