Aesthetic Theory, Abstract Art and Lawrence Carroll' explores the philosophical implications of the practice of art making, illustrating the intricate relationship between aesthetic theory and contemporary art through the work of the abstract painter, Lawrence Carroll. Beginning with a historical discussion of the critics and philosophers Clement Greenberg, Michael Fried, Arthur Danto and Joachim Pissarro, David Carrier compares and contrasts their philosophical writings on painting. He considers why questions about aesthetics and the essence of a painting generated philosophical disagreements.

Visual Typologies from the Early Modern to the Contemporary investigates the pictorial representation of types from the sixteenth to the twenty- first century. Originating in longstanding visual traditions, including street crier prints and costume albums, these images share certain conventions as they seek to convey knowledge about different peoples. The genre of the type became widespread in the early modern period, developing into a global language of identity. The chapters explore diverse pictorial representations of types, customs, and dress in numerous media, including paintings, prints, postcards, photographs, and garments. Together, they reveal that the activation of typological strategies, including seriality, repetition, appropriation, and subversion has produced a universal and dynamic pictorial language. Typological images highlight the tensions between the local and the international, the specific and the communal, and similarity and difference inherent in the construction of identity. The first full- length study to treat these images as a broader genre, Visual Typologies gives voice to a marginalized form of representation. Together, the chapters debunk the classification of such images as unmediated and authentic representations, offering fresh methodological frameworks to consider their meanings locally and globally, and establishing common ground about the operations of objects that sought to shape, embody, or challenge individual and collective identities.

"Ce livre nous invite à une visite aussi fabuleuse que documentée de la grotte Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc, où notre espèce inscrivit un trésor, il y a 36000 ans. "Lire, écouter les savants, prendre le train pour visiter la reconstitution, faire défiler les documentaires et les visites virtuelles à en avoir le tournis... quand c'est à la réalité que tant nous aspirons. Au moins, à voir vraiment de nos vrais yeux la vraie trace réelle d'une présence évanouie. Rien, rien n'y fait, notre désir est impossible à assouvir. Alors chacun s'agite, repeint sa maison, imprime des mains au plafond, s'enterre trois mois dans son jardin, ou écrit. Comme, enfant, on se construit des cabanes, j'ai bricolé ma grotte Chauvet avec les moyens du bord. En écrivant toutes les histoires et bouts de ficelles qui me poussaient de partout, tous les jours, tout le temps.""--Page 4 of cover.

This book analyzes practices of collecting in European art museums from 1989 to the present, arguing that museums actualize absence both consciously and unconsciously, while misrepresentation is an outcome of the absent perspectives and voices of minority community members which are rarely considered in relation to contemporary art. Difficult knowledge is proposed as a way of dealing with absence productively. Drawing on social art history, museology, postcolonial theory, and memory studies, Margaret Tali analyzes the collections of four modern and contemporary art museums across Europe: the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin, the Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art in Budapest, the Kiasma Museum in Helsinki, and the Kumu Museum in Tallinn.

The Academie Royale assembled nearly all of the important French artists working at the time, maintained a virtual monopoly on teaching and exhibitions, enjoyed a priority in obtaining royal commissions, and deeply influenced the artistic landscape in France. Yet the institution remains little understood today: all commentary on it, during its existence and since its abolition, is based on prejudices, both favourable and critical, that have shaped the way the institution has been appraised. This book takes a different approach. Rather than judging the Academie Royale, Michel unravels existing critical discourse to consider the nuances and complexities of the academy's history, re-examining its goals, the shifting power dynamics both within the institution and in the larger political landscape, and its relationship with other French academies and guilds.

This book analyses how three artists - Adrian Piper, Nancy Spero and Mary Kelly - worked with the visual dimensions of language in the 1960s and 1970s. These artists used text and images of writing to challenge female stereotypes, addressing viewers and asking them to participate in the project of imagining women beyond familiar words and images of subordination. The book explores this dimension of their work through the concept of 'the other woman', a utopian wish to reach women and correspond with them across similarities and differences. To make the artwork's aspirations more concrete, it places the artists in correspondence with three writers - Angela Davis, Valerie Solanas, and Laura Mulvey - who also addressed the limited range of images through which women are allowed to become visible. -- .

"Que disent une figure fang du Gabon, un couple dogon du Mali ou un masque dan de Côte d'Ivoire ? Comment les plasticiens liés à des cultures ancestrales regardent-ils aujourd'hui une Afrique plurielle dont ils interrogent les transformations ? Ces questions sont au coeur de cet ouvrage édité à l'occasion de l'exposition organisée par la Fondation Dapper à la Fondation Clément (Martinique). Consacrée aux arts anciens, la première partie du livre montre à travers des oeuvres majeures de la Fondation Dapper combien l'esthétique est liée aux rôles dévolus aux objets dans leurs sociétés : communiquer avec les esprits, protéger, guérir, annoncer une naissance, une prise de pouvoir, des funérailles ou accompagner une initiation. La seconde partie donne à voir des démarches où sculptures, peintures, photographies, photomontages, collages constituent autant de moyens utilisés par des artistes talentueux pour sonder la mémoire collective, questionner les cultes et les rites, s'approprier une histoire enfin partagée ou dire leur place dans un monde marqué par la diversité."--Page 4 of cover.

A ground-breaking exhibition at Tate Britain, scheduled to mark the end of the 1918 centenary commemorative period, will be the first to examine the memorialisation and the social and aesthetic impact of the First World War. It will explore how memories of the war have been filtered through specific cultural forms and political agendas. These range from memorial painting and sculpture, to representations of the destruction of bodies and landscape, and new aesthetic developments in art which offered ways of critiquing and re-imagining post-war society. It will compare visual responses to the war in Britain, Germany and France and include painting, sculpture, works on paper, photography, film and medical collections. This accompanying publication will examine how processes of commemoration and mourning were represented through the visual arts in Britain, Germany and France. Illustrations will range from artworks specifically commissioned as memorials of war - such as commemorative painting cycles and memorial sculpture - to those associated with formal and intellectual developments such as Dada and Surrealism, which created new visual forms to process experiences and memories of the conflict. Authors will also examine how memories of war influenced the art of the inter-war years and look at the social impact of the First World War through the interaction between artists, politics and city spaces. Aftermath seeks to broaden the examination of war and memory beyond the modernist canon to show how both traditional and avant-garde art formed part of this process, exploring the parallel resurgence of realism in movements such as Neue Sachlichkeit and the `Return to Order' which responded to the aftermath of war through the reinvention of traditional forms.

This volume explores the late medieval and early modern periods from the perspective of objects. While the agency of things has been studied in anthropology and archaeology, it is an innovative approach for art historical investigations. Each contributor takes as a point of departure active things: objects that were collected, exchanged, held in hand, carried on a body, assembled, cared for or pawned. Through a series of case studies set in various geographic locations, this volume examines a rich variety of systems throughout Europe and beyond.

"This is an intimate and revealing biography of Agnes Martin, renowned American painter, considered one of the great women artists of the 20th and 21st Century. A resident of both New Mexico and New York City, Martin has always remained an enigma due to her fiercely guarded private life. Henry Martin, award-winning writer, and art scholar, having access to those who were close to Agnes Martin--friends, family, former lovers--has given (gives) us a full portrait of this universally revered artist. Readers will learn of her bouts with mental illness, her several significant lesbian relationships, and her lifelong yearning for recognition despite her reclusive lifestyle and need for privacy. Arriving in the wake of major international retrospective exhibitions of her work from London's Tate Modern, LACMA in Los Angeles, and the Guggenheim in New York City, this book provides a perspective of Agnes Martin that has not been seen in earlier, more academic works or fine-art monographs. Certain to be a mainstay for readers of the arts, and admirers of the creative spirit, this book also includes rare photographs from Martin's family and friends, many of which have never appeared in a book before"-- Provided by publisher.
