Описание: This book provides an in-depth account of the protests that shook France in 1968 and which served as a catalyst to a radical reconsideration of artistic practice that has shaped both art and museum exhibitions up to the present. Rebecca DeRoo examines how issues of historical and personal memory, the separation of public and private domains, and the ordinary objects of everyday life emerged as central concerns for museums and for artists, as both struggled to respond to the protests. She argues that the responses of the museums were only partially faithful to the aims of the activist movements. Museums, in fact, often misunderstood and misrepresented the work of artists that was exhibited as a means of addressing these concerns. Analyzing how museums and critics did and did not address the aims of the protests, DeRoo highlights the issues relevant to the politics of the public display of art that have been central to artistic representation, in France as well as in North America.

Описание: First published in 1996, this irreplaceable resource has now been updated, revised, and expanded by Kristine Stiles to represent thirty countries and more than one hundred new artists. Stiles has added forty images and a diverse roster of artists, including many who have emerged since the 1980s, such as Julie Mehretu, Carrie Mae Weems, Damien Hirst, Shirin Neshat, Cai Guo-Qian, Olafur Eliasson, Matthew Barney, and Takashi Murakami. The writings, which as before take the form of artists' statements, interviews, and essays, make vivid each artist's aesthetic approach and capture the flavor and intent of his or her work. The internationalism evident in this revised edition reflects the growing interest in the vitality of contemporary art throughout the world from the U.S. and Europe to the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Australia.

Описание: While recent studies in neuroscience and psychology have shed light on our sensory and perceptual responses to art, they have yet to explain our responses to contemporary art which downplays perceptual responses and instead encourages conceptual thought. The Psychology of Contemporary Art brings together the most important developments in recent scientific research on visual perception and cognition and applies the results of empirical experiments to analyses of contemporary artworks not normally addressed by psychological studies. The author explains, in simple terms, how neuroaesthetics, embodiment, metaphor, conceptual blending, situated cognition and extended mind offer fresh perspectives on specific contemporary artworks – including those of Marina Abramovi?, Francis Al?s, Tracey Emin, Felix Gonzales-Torres, Marcus Harvey, Mona Hatoum, Thomas Hirschorn, Gabriel Orozco, Marc Quinn and Cindy Sherman. This book will appeal to psychologists, cognitive scientists, artists and art historians, as well as those interested in a deeper understanding of contemporary art.
Описание: From cannibalism to light calligraphy, from self-harming to animal sacrifice, from meat entwined with sex toys to a commodity-embedded ice wall, the idiosyncratic output of Chinese time-based art over the years has invigorated contemporary global art movements. The author shows us how art can reflect, construct, confound, and enrich us.
Описание: The art world is no longer defined by the activity of traditional art centers such as New York, Berlin, Beijing, or London, but is instead shaped by many cities, small and large. These new artistic communities, each reflecting the history, culture, and conditions of its region, have established a vibrant network for contemporary art. This groundbreaking book explores the hybrid nature of today's international artistic landscape by introducing readers to the art scenes in six featured cities--Beirut, Lebanon; Cali, Colombia; Cluj, Romania; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; San Francisco, USA; and Tangier, Morocco. In bringing together work by artists whose efforts have anchored each city's cultural scene, "Six Lines of Flight" maps the pathways between them, illuminating the dynamic, global, interconnected spirit of twenty-first-century art. Essays by writers active in each region are accompanied by color images of representative artworks, along with brief texts on key local artists and organizations. An introductory text by Apsara DiQuinzio and thematic essays by Hou Hanru, Pamela M. Lee, and Tarek Elhaik and Dominic Willsdon further contextualize cultural production in the featured cities in relation to common themes such as histories in construction, cosmopolitanism, center-periphery dynamics, collectivity, networks, and the effects of economic and cultural renaissance. Exhibition dates: San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; September 15-December 31, 2012

Описание: Globalization and Contemporary Art is an unprecedented collection aimed at charting art since the 1980s as it has intersected with--and been re-envisioned by--the forces of globalization. This volume will provide an authoritative, accessible, comprehensive, and challenging account of the impact of globalization upon contemporary visual art and its socio-cultural spheres of production, circulation, and consumption. Globalization and Contemporary Art will be divided into 7 sections and showcase 32 essays from all corners of the world by leading scholars in art history/theory, visual and museum studies. Each section is deliberately wide-ranging, with a view to embracing the subject in all its fullness, diversity and unruliness--from case-studies of artists and artworks to meditations that concentrate on broader thematic, conceptual, and historiographical topics. Tackling the subject through a variety of useful analytics--forms and formations, institutions, the production of meaning, identifications, and reproduction-- the status of art history is challenged as the dominant discipline able intellectually to recognize and account for developments in visual art and art worlds' since the 1980s. This set of essays suggests through a variety of ways how and why such a necessary reconceptualization should take place and with what consequences.
Mapping the new geography of the visual arts, from the explosion of biennials to the emerging art markets in Asia and the Middle East.
The geography of the visual arts changed with the end of the Cold War. Contemporary art was no longer defined, exhibited, interpreted, and acquired according to a blueprint drawn up in New York, London, Paris, or Berlin. The art world distributed itself into art worlds. With the emergence of new art scenes in Asia and the Middle East and the explosion of biennials, the visual arts have become globalized as surely as the world economy has. This book offers a new map of contemporary art's new worlds.
The Global Contemporary and the Rise of New Art Worlds documents the globalization of the visual arts and the rise of the contemporary over the last twenty years. Lavishly illustrated, with color throughout, it tracks developments ranging from exhibition histories and the rise of new art spaces to art's branding in such emerging markets as Hong Kong and the Gulf States. Essays treat such subjects as curating after the global turn; art and the migration of pictures; the end of the canon; and new strategies of representation.
