A Hunger for Aesthetics by Michael Kelly Book Summary:
This title examines the motivations for the critiques that have been applied to the idea of aesthetics and argues that theorists and artists now hunger for a new kind of aesthetics, one better calibrated to contemporary art and its moral and political demands. The book shows how, for decades, aesthetic critiques have often concerned art's treatment of beauty or the autonomy of art. Collectively, these critiques have generated an anti-aesthetic stance that is now prevalent in the contemporary art world.

Pop Art and Design by Anne Massey,Alex Seago Book Summary:
This book offers the first in-depth analysis of the relationship between art and design, which led to the creation of 'pop'. Challenging accepted boundaries and definitions, the authors seek out various commonalities and points of connection between these two exciting areas. Confronting the all-pervasive 'high art / low culture' divide, Pop Art and Design brings a fresh understanding of visual culture during the vibrant 1950s and 60s. This was an era when commercial art became graphic design, illustration was superseded by photography and high fashion became street fashion, all against the backdrop of a rapidly-evolving economic and political landscape, a glamorous youth scene and an effervescent popular culture. The book's central argument is that pop art relied on and drew inspiration from pop design, and vice versa. Massey and Seago assert that this relationship was articulated through the artwork, design, publications and exhibitions of a network of key practitioners. Pop Art and Design provides a case study in the broader inter-relationship between art and design, and constitutes the first interdisciplinary publication on the subject.
How Folklore Shaped Modern Art by Wes Hill Book Summary:
Since the 1990s, artists and art writers around the world have increasingly undermined the essentialism associated with notions of "critical practice." We can see this manifesting in the renewed relevance of what were previously considered "outsider" art practices, the emphasis on first-person accounts of identity over critical theory, and the proliferation of exhibitions that refuse to distinguish between art and the productions of culture more generally. How Folklore Shaped Modern Art: A Post-Critical History of Aesthetics underscores how the cultural traditions, belief systems and performed exchanges that were once integral to the folklore discipline are now central to contemporary art’s "post-critical turn." This shift is considered here as less a direct confrontation of critical procedures than a symptom of art’s inclusive ideals, overturning the historical separation of fine art from those "uncritical" forms located in material and commercial culture. In a global context, aesthetics is now just one of numerous traditions informing our encounters with visual culture today, symptomatic of the pull towards an impossibly pluralistic image of art that reflects the irreducible conditions of identity.
Theatre of the Ridiculous by Kelly I. Aliano Book Summary:
Theatre of the Ridiculous is a significant movement that highlighted the radical possibilities inherent in camp. Much of contemporary theatre owes this form a great debt but little has been written about its history or aesthetic markers. This book offers a comprehensive overview of the important practitioners, along with critical commentary of their work. Beginning with Ridiculous’ most recognizable name, Charles Ludlam, the author traces the development of this campy, queer genre, from the B movies of Maria Montez to the Pop Art scene of Andy Warhol to the founding of the Play-House of the Ridiculous and the dawn of Ludlam’s career and finally to the contemporary theatre scene.
The Who on Record by John Atkins Book Summary:
More than just a biography or discography, this work is a thoroughly detailed guide to every known recording of the legendary British rock band The Who—their entire range, from their early hits of the 1960s through the ambitious concept works to their later successes. Many previously uncovered facts are incorporated into the text, and the author has been able to glean exclusive information from The Who’s archives. Unrealized Who projects are discussed and analyzed for the first time in print. Finally, the work contains a discography of CDs and an exhaustive appendix of every known Who song.
Minimal Art by Gregory Battcock Book Summary:
"So perspicuous was Battcock's choice of articles in Minimal Art that his book has proved to be an exceptionally telling index of the critical discourse of its time. This is the key primary source book—for that matter it remains the key book—on the subject of Minimal Art, a movement that has lately, newly become a topic of consuming interest to many modern art historians, critics, curators and artists."—Anna C. Chave, author of Mark Rothko: Subjects in Abstraction "Good criticism of contemporary art movements is both rare and scattered, and readers with access to a wide range of periodicals and catalogue introductions are few. . . Minimal Art is so obviously the most important movement of the 1960s, and equally certainly will continue to be so in the early 1970s, that this anthology will be a valuable compilation of statements by artists and assessments by critics."—David Irwin, Apollo
Les années pop by Mark Francis Book Summary:
Immense exposition (plus de 500 oeuvres) consacrée au pop'art que l'on a qualifié de "populaire, éphémère, consommable, bon marché, fabriqué en série, jeune, spirituel, érotique, glamour, lucratif". Exploration d'une constellation d'artistes européens mais surtout américains pour lesquels la communication de masse, le cinéma, la publicité, les images de la société de consommation constituèrent la principale source d'inspiration. [SDM].
Color Chart by Ann Temkin,Briony Fer Book Summary:
Color Chart celebrates a paradox: the lush beauty that results when contemporary artists assign colour decisions to chance, readymade source or arbitrary system. Midway through the 20th century, long-held convictions regarding the spiritual truth or scientific validity of particular colours gave way to an excitement about colour as a mass-produced and standardized commercial product. The Romantic quest for personal expression instead became Andy Warhol's 'I want to be a machine'; the artistry of mixing pigments was eclipsed by Frank Stella's 'Straight out of the can; it can't get better than that'. This book, and the exhibition it accompanies, is the first devoted to this pivotal transformation, and features work by some forty artists ranging from Ellsworth Kelly and Gerhard Richter to Sherrie Levine and Damien Hirst.
A Critical History of Contemporary Architecture by Asst Prof David Rifkind,Dr Elie G Haddad Book Summary:
This book provides a comprehensive, critical overview of the developments in architecture from 1960 to 2010. The first section provides a presentation of major movements in architecture after 1960, and the second, a geographic survey that covers a wide range of territories around the world. This book not only reflects the different perspectives of its various authors, but also charts a middle course between the 'aesthetic' histories that examine architecture solely in terms of its formal aspects, and the more 'ideological' histories that subject it to a critique that often skirts the discussion of its formal aspects.
The Beautiful Ones by PRINCE,Dan PIEPENBRING Book Summary:
L'histoire de l'ascension fulgurante et sublime de l'un des plus grands artistes de tous les temps, écrite de sa main et accompagnée de photos inédites, collages originaux et textes de chansons. Prince était un génie musical, un visionnaire exceptionnel. Sa créativité était telle qu'il embrassait tous les univers, du paradis sexy, brut et funk de " Uptown " aux paysages mythiques de Purple Rain. Mais son entreprise la plus ambitieuse fut de transformer un petit gamin du Minnesota en Prince, l'un des musiciens les plus aimés, accomplis et acclamés de notre temps. Comment Prince est devenu Prince. Cet ouvrage comprend les textes autobiographiques que Prince a rédigés avant sa mort, des pages de prose lyrique qui nous transportent dans le monde de son enfance ; sous forme de scrapbook, on y découvre ses débuts dans la musique, avant la sortie de son premier disque ; une série de photos personnelles illustrent l'évolution de l'artiste jusqu'à son avènement ; les documents originaux liés à Purple Rain – l'étape finale de l'autocréation de Prince – sont aussi réunis ici. Dans une introduction émouvante, Dan Piepenbring raconte sa collaboration avec l'artiste dans les derniers mois de sa vie, une période où celui-ci réfléchissait à une manière différente de s'exprimer et de diffuser ses idées, tout en conservant son mystère et sa mystique. The Beautiful Ones n'est pas seulement un hommage à une icône universelle, c'est une véritable oeuvre de création littéraire, reflétant la vision artistique de Prince, sa voix et son image – son dernier cadeau au monde.
