Other Criteria Confrontations With Twentieth Century Art [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Other Criteria by Leo Steinberg Book Summary:

Leo Steinberg’s classic Other Criteria comprises eighteen essays on topics ranging from “Contemporary Art and the Plight of Its Public” and the “flatbed picture plane” to reflections on Picasso, Rauschenberg, Rodin, de Kooning, Pollock, Guston, and Jasper Johns. The latter, which Francine du Plessix Gray called “a tour de force of critical method,” is widely regarded as the most eye-opening analysis of the Johns’s work ever written. This edition includes a new preface and a handful of additional illustrations. “The art book of the year, if not of the decade and possibly of the century. . . .The significance of this volume lies not so much in the quality of its insights—although the quality is very high and the insights are important—as in the richness, precision, and elegance of its style. . . . A meeting with the mind of Leo Steinberg is one of the most enlightening experiences that contemporary criticism affords.” —Alfred Frankenstein, Art News “Not only one of the most lucid and independent minds among art critics, but a profound one.”—Robert Motherwell

The Baroque in Architectural Culture, 1880-1980

Other Criteria Confrontations With Twentieth Century Art [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Baroque in Architectural Culture, 1880-1980 by Andrew Leach,John Macarthur Book Summary:

In his landmark volume Space, Time and Architecture, Sigfried Giedion paired images of two iconic spirals: Tatlin’s Monument to the Third International and Borromini’s dome for Sant’Ivo alla Sapienza. The values shared between the baroque age and the modern were thus encapsulated on a single page spread. As Giedion put it, writing of Sant’Ivo, Borromini accomplished 'the movement of the whole pattern [...] from the ground to the lantern, without entirely ending even there.' And yet he merely 'groped' towards that which could 'be completely effected' in modern architecture-achieving 'the transition between inner and outer space.' The intellectual debt of modern architecture to modernist historians who were ostensibly preoccupied with the art and architecture of earlier epochs is now widely acknowledged. This volume extends this work by contributing to the dual projects of the intellectual history of modern architecture and the history of architectural historiography. It considers the varied ways that historians of art and architecture have historicized modern architecture through its interaction with the baroque: a term of contested historical and conceptual significance that has often seemed to shadow a greater contest over the historicity of modernism. Presenting research by an international community of scholars, this book explores through a series of cross sections the traffic of ideas between practice and history that has shaped modern architecture and the academic discipline of architectural history across the long twentieth century. The editors use the historiography of the baroque as a lens through which to follow the path of modern ideas that draw authority from history. In doing so, the volume defines a role for the baroque in the history of architectural historiography and in the history of modern architectural culture.

Dictionnaire des Idées & Notions en Arts et en Architecture

Other Criteria Confrontations With Twentieth Century Art [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Dictionnaire des Idées & Notions en Arts et en Architecture by Encyclopaedia Universalis Book Summary:

Idées & Notions : joli titre pour une collection consacrée au savoir. Mais comment se relient les deux faces de ce diptyque ? Il est possible de le dire en peu de mots. Le volet « idées » traite des courants de pensée. Il passe en revue les théories, manifestes, écoles, doctrines. Mais toutes ces constructions s’élaborent à partir de « notions » qui les alimentent. Les notions sont les briques, les outils de base de la pensée, de la recherche, de la vie intellectuelle. Éclairons la distinction par un exemple : l’inconscient est une notion, le freudisme une idée. Les droits de l’homme, la concurrence ou l’évolution sont des notions. La théologie de la libération, la théorie néo-classique ou le darwinisme sont des idées. Notions et idées sont complémentaires. Les unes ne vont pas sans les autres. Notions et idées s’articulent, s’entrechoquent, s’engendrent mutuellement. Leur confrontation, qui remonte parfois à un lointain passé, tient la première place dans les débats d’aujourd’hui. La force de cette collection, c’est de les réunir et de les faire dialoguer. Le présent volume sélectionne idées et notions autour d’un thème commun : Dictionnaire des Idées & Notions en Arts et en Architecture.

Certaines d’entre elles, les plus importantes sans doute, viennent de loin et semblent avoir toujours existé : Beau, Bien, Désir, Être, Histoire, Justice, Matière, Progrès, Temps, Travail, Vérité, Vie... D’autres, plus récentes, reflètent des préoccupations plus actuelles : Analogique/Numérique, Biodiversité, Chômage, Développement durable, Inflation, Mondialisation... Quelle est leur histoire ? Comment ont-elles évolué au fil du temps ? Le Dictionnaire des Notions commente 700 notions clés issues de tous les champs du savoir.

Objects as History in Twentieth-century German Art

Objects as History in Twentieth-century German Art by Peter Chametzky Book Summary:

This book provides an overview of twentieth-century German art, focusing on some of the period's key works. In Peter Chametzky's innovative approach, these works become representatives rather than representations of twentieth-century history. Chametzky draws on both scholarly and popular sources to demonstrate how the works (and in some cases, the artists themselves) interacted with, and even enacted, historical events, processes, and ideas.--[book jacket].

Contemporary Art: A Very Short Introduction

Other Criteria Confrontations With Twentieth Century Art [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Contemporary Art: A Very Short Introduction by Julian Stallabrass Book Summary:

Contemporary art has never been so popular - but what is 'contemporary' about contemporary art? What is its role today, and who is controlling its future? Bloody toy soldiers, gilded shopping carts, and embroidered tents. Contemporary art is supposed to be a realm of freedom where artists shock, break taboos, flout generally received ideas, and switch between confronting viewers with works of great emotional profundity and jaw-dropping triviality. But away from shock tactics in the gallery, there are many unanswered questions. Who is really running the art world? What effect has America's growing political and cultural dominance had on art? Julian Stallabrass takes us inside the international art world to answer these and other controversial questions, and to argue that behind contemporary art's variety and apparent unpredictability lies a grim uniformity. Its mysteries are all too easily explained, its depths much shallower than they seem. Contemporary art seeks to bamboozle its viewers while being the willing slave of business and government. This book is your antidote and will change the way you see contemporary art. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly.

Creative Enterprise

Other Criteria Confrontations With Twentieth Century Art [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Creative Enterprise by Martha Buskirk Book Summary:

In the face of unparalleled growth and a truly global audience, the popularity of contemporary art has clearly become a double-edged affair. Today, an unprecedented number of museums, galleries, biennial-style exhibitions, and art fairs display new work in all its variety, while art schools continue to inject fresh talent onto the scene at an accelerated rate. In the process, however, contemporary art has become deeply embedded not only in an expanding art industry, but also the larger cultures of fashion and entertainment. Buskirk argues that understanding the dynamics of art itself cannot be separated from the business of presenting art to the public. As strategies of institutional critique have given way to various forms of collaboration or accommodation, both art and museum conventions have been profoundly altered by their ongoing relationship. The escalating market for contemporary art is another driving force. Even as art remains an idealized activity, it is also understood as a profession, and in increasingly obvious ways a business, particularly as practiced by star artists who preside over branded art product lines.

Bazille: Purity, Pose, and Painting in the 1860s

Other Criteria Confrontations With Twentieth Century Art [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Bazille: Purity, Pose, and Painting in the 1860s by N.A Book Summary:

A thought-provoking analysis of Frederic Bazille that sheds new light on the origins and dilemmas of modernist painting.Studio companion of Monet and Renoir, protege of Courbet, and friend of Manet, Frederic Bazille (1841-1870) is more often remembered for the financial assistance he provided to future Impressionists than for his own vivid and often unsettling work. In this first complete book in English devoted to Bazille, Dianne Pitman seeks to situate this often overlooked artist within the complex and contradictory art world of the 1860s. In the process, she greatly refines our understanding of the modernist tradition.Pitman examines a series of major paintings and critical essays by Bazille and his contemporaries and frames them within the modernist discourse about purity, or respecting the proper limits of the medium. She stresses the problem of pose -- the way in which painted subjects seem to respond to the artist's presence and the implied presence of the beholder -- and explores his responses to the new medium of photography, the idea of painting without subject matter, the burden of tradition, and the problematic of self-portraiture. As these themes again come to the fore in much of the most controversial art and criticism of the late twentieth century, this study also represents an important contribution to the ongoing debate concerning the oppositions and continuities between modernism and postmodernism.

The Crosswinds of Freedom, 1932–1988

Other Criteria Confrontations With Twentieth Century Art [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Crosswinds of Freedom is an articulate and incisive examination of the United States during its rise to become the world’s sole superpower. Here is a young democracy transformed by the Great Depression, the Second World War, the Cold War, the rapid pace of technological change, and the distinct visions of nine presidents. Spanning fifty-six years and touching on many corners of the nation’s complex cultural tapestry, Burns’s work is a remarkable look at the forces that gave rise to the “American Century.”
