Summary : "Featuring 70 works in various media--paintings, calligraphy, photographs, woodblock prints, video, and sculpture--that were created during the past three decades, Ink Art: Past as Present in Contemporary China will demonstrate how China's ancient pattern of seeking cultural renewal through the reinterpretation of past models remains a viable creative path. Although all of the artists have transformed their sources through new modes of expression, visitors will recognize thematic, aesthetic, or technical attributes in their creations that have meaningful links to China's artistic past. The exhibition will be organized thematically into four parts and will include such highlights as Xu Bing's dramatic Book from the Sky (ca. 1988), an installation that will fill an entire gallery; Family Tree (2000), a set of vivid photographs documenting a performance by Zhang Huan in which his facial features--and his identity--are obscured gradually by physiognomic texts that are inscribed directly onto his face; and Map of China (2006) by Ai Weiwei, which is constructed entirely of wood salvaged from demolished Qing dynasty temples." --

Summary : John Everett Millais (1829-1896) is undoubtedly among the most important of Victorian artists. In his day, and our own, he remains also the most controversial. While, during his lifetime, controversy centred around his early Pre-Raphaelite paintings, in particular Christ in the house of his Parents (1850), during the twentieth century the most intense criticism has been directed towards Millais's later works, such as Bubbles (1886), which has been widely condemned as sentimental 'kitsch'. These later paintings have been held up as the epitome of the degradation of art, against which avant-garde and Modernist pioneers struggled. None of the existing literature on Millais addresses the fundamental problem that this double-identity reveals. While there is extensive material on the Pre-Raphaelite movement in general, Millais's own work after the 1850s is rarely discussed in detail, despite the fact that he lived and worked for another 30 years after his abandonment of the Pre-Raphaelite style. Time Present and Time Past: The Art of John Everett Millais presents the first comprehensive account of Millais's artistic career from beginning to end. The book considers the question of 'high' and 'low' cultural status in debates during Millais's own day, and in subsequent critical thinking, situating Millais's art as a whole within this cultural framework.

Summary : This edited collection reassesses East-Central European art by offering transnational perspectives on its regional or national histories, while also inserting the region into contemporary discussions of global issues. Both in popular imagination and, to some degree, scholarly literature, East-Central Europe is persistently imagined as a hermetically isolated cultural landscape. This book restores the diverse ways in which East-Central European art has always been entangled with actors and institutions in the wider world. The contributors engage with empirically anchored and theoretically argued case studies from historical periods representing notable junctures of globalization: the early modern period, the age of Empires, the time of socialist rule and the global Cold War, and the most recent decades of postsocialism understood as a global condition.

Summary : Is art just a nice-to-have? Or is it deeper, far more integral...even necessary? Is there something from Beethoven to help us with that career setback? Is there something from Shakespeare to help us with our relationships? Is there something from Rembrandt to show us who we really are? It is these, amongt other questions that this book probes; through painting, music, literature, architecture, sculpture, photography and filmsspanning cultures - from Europe and Africa to India and Australia, and artistic periods - from the ancient to the modern. Leveraging his considerable experience as a research professional, Ivan Fernandez combines riveting insights from diverse artists of the past and the present, a dazzling variety of astonishing facts and powerful questions for us to reflect on. In language that is simple, elegant and imbued with passion, Ivan utters an urgent, sincere plea; urging us to draw actionable life lessons from art that can help us rise above ourselves. To make a masterpiece of our own lives. And as a guide on this epic voyage, he takes us on a fascinating journey inward; ploughing not merely the depths of artistic insight, but of the inscrutable human spirit itself! Fernandez talks about bliss - a term Ive often used. It was through writing about my practice, together with making my work, that I found my bliss. I wish Id had Fernandezs book back in those times when overwhelming doubt inhibited my practice. He brings enlightenment to thinking about art and why artists do what they do. This can help give an artist conviction, and therefore confidence, and a lay person a heightened appreciation of art. This most enjoyable read will bring great insight to artists and lay people alike. A truly inspiring read! - Archibald Prize-winning artist and art teacher, Cherry Hood Ivan Fernandezs cross-disciplinary approach - infusing insights from philosophy, literature, music and art - make this book a great read! - Sculptor, Vince Vozzo; member of the decade club (exhibited at Sculpture by the Sea ten times or more)

Summary : From the glories of the High Renaissance in Italy to the emotional visions of the Romantics, and from the groundbreaking techniques of the Impressionists to the radical canvases of the Abstract Expressionists, this book provides a fascinating look at the major movements in the history of Western painting. A clear chronological structure allows the reader to see each movement in its historical context and to appreciate the patterns that emerge. The historical framework shows the extent to which the powers of royalty, religion, and revolution have exerted their influence in the artistic sphere.

Summary : With a history of more than 30 years, media art plays an increasingly important role in the international discourse on contemporary art. The reception of canonical video works and electronic media installations is however restricted to temporary and locally defined displays in museum exhibitions or confined to incomplete catalogue documentations. This volume provides a unique combination of theoretical reflections on the reproducibility, preservation of authenticity and juridical implications of emulation techniques with practical approaches to archiving methods and commercial aspects of media art’s accessibility. It is an indispensible guide to the pro’s and con’s for new forms of de-centralized systems of mediation and the growing demands for liberal rules and easy access to online-presentations of media art. Uncomparable to other current publications, the book offers a practical manual with checklists for relevant websites and content profiles of major distribution companies.

Summary : The term 'temporality' often refers to the traditional mode of the way time is: a linear procession of past, present and future. As philosophers will note, this is not always the case. Christine Ross builds on current philosophical and theoretical examinations of time and applies them to the field of contemporary art: films, video installations, sculpture and performance works. Ross first provides an interdisciplinary overview of contemporary studies on time, focusing on findings in philosophy, psychology, sociology, communications, history, postcolonial studies, and ecology. She then illustrates how contemporary artistic practices play around with what we consider linear time. Engaging the work of artists such as Guido van der Werve, Melik Ohanian, Harun Farocki, and Stan Douglas, allows investigation though the art, as opposed to having art taking an ancillary role. The Past is the Present; It's the Future Too forces the reader to understand the complexities of the significance of temporal development in new artistic practices.

Summary : Leading art critic explores the connections between art’s past and present Contemporary art sometimes pretends to have made a clean break with history. In The Perpetual Guest, poet and critic Barry Schwabsky demonstrates that any robust understanding of art’s present must also account for the ongoing life and changing fortunes of its past. Surveying the art world of recent decades, Schwabsky attends not only to its most significant newer faces—among them, Kara Walker, Thomas Hirschhorn, Ai Weiwei, Chris Ofili, and Lorna Simpson—but their forebears as well, both near (Jeff Wall, Nancy Spero, Dan Graham, Cindy Sherman) and more distant (Velázquez, Manet, Matisse, and the portraitists of the Renaissance). Schwabsky’s rich and subtle contributions illuminate art’s present moment in all its complexity: shot through with determinations produced by centuries of interwoven traditions, but no less open-ended for it.

Summary : "Heritage and Debt is a comparative study of global contemporary art that addresses artworks from around the world without falling into a survey of successive regions as most art-historical accounts of globalization do. It demonstrates that art's globalization has the capacity to redress Western modernism's historical responsibility for the cultural dispossession of the Global South. Both imperialism and slavery--two primary means of capital accumulation in the 19th century-asserted the cultural inferiority of non-Western cultures as justification for appropriating their land, labor, and the personal freedom of their peoples. While non-Western art was denigrated and suppressed in its places of origin, it was nevertheless appropriated by European modernism in the subordinate position of "primitivism" or "exoticism," or collected as defunct anthropological relics in encyclopedic or natural history museums in the European or American metropolis. Global contemporary art confronts this history of dispossession in its reanimation of cultural heritage as a contemporary resource. Since the 1980s artists from around the world have reclaimed local traditions to challenge the predominance of Euro-American contemporary art. Likewise, under global conditions, the development of heritage, which I define as any inherited cultural tradition in any region of the world, whether ancient or modern, has become an effective, even a necessary resource for localities in competing for investment, tourist dollars, and also indirectly, diplomatic or soft power. Heritage is thus both a symbolic and an economic asset, as indicated by the worldwide proliferation of new museums, often devoted to modern and contemporary art. Inspired by postcolonial thinkers and new directions in anthropology, Heritage and Debt argues that in global contemporary art, tradition-or heritage-has become a dynamic source of modern and contemporary aesthetic expressions in the Global South. Heritage and Debt will serve as a valuable resource in defining the burgeoning field of global contemporary art. The fact that the book's arguments are deeply grounded in the work of critics and historians from Africa, India, Latin America, Australia, and Asia should make Heritage and Debt relevant in many locations, as will its fundamentally comparative structure"--

Summary : A fascinating exploration of art from the Renaissance to modern times by one of America's most distinguished art historians. Focusing on specific masterpieces like Michelangelo's David, Bernini's image of the Sun King, and Picasso's lithographs of bulls, Lavin addresses creations that seek to define the present expressly in terms of the past. "I am an inveterate source-monger. My work, i.e., the actual labor I expend in archives, libraries, museums, churches, etc., is mainly that of a prospector digging and sifting to find a rare and shiny nugget--a work of art, a significant text, an idea--sufficiently analogous and available to suggest it might actually have been pertinent to the matter at hand." Thus does Irving Lavin venture forth, and the treasures he finds are brought back to us in these seven essays. The past plays an explicit role in his explorations. In focusing on specific works such as Donatello's bronze pulpits in San Lorenzo, Bernini's image of the Sun King, and Picasso's lithographs of bulls, Lavin addresses creations that seek to define the present expressly in terms of the past. Also, he persuasively shows how art can portray human individuality within philosophical, religious, political, ideological, and cultural frameworks. Originally delivered as part of the Una's Lectures at the University of California, Berkeley, the essays show the richness of the artists' sources by tracing certain motifs and traditions back in time. Generously accompanied by photographs that illustrate Lavin's explorations, this is a work of importance to both art historians and lovers of art.
