Product Description
Modernism and Modernity: The Vancouver Conference Papers, was originally published as the proceedings from a conference held in Vancouver, in 1983. Due to its popularity, this reprint is being issued with the same insightful and intriguing papers by Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, T.J. Clark, Hollis Clayson, Thomas Crow, Nicole Dubreuil-Blondin, Clement Greenberg, Henri Lefebvre, Marcelin Pleynet, Allan Sekula, Paul Hayes Tucker, and John Wilson Foster, all of which constitute a major contribution to the rethinking of the history and debates concerning modernism and modernity. Once novelties in the 1980s, many of these essays and theories in this illustrated reader are today regarded as modern classics.

Edited by Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Serge Guilbauta and David Solkin.

Essays by T.J. Clark, Hollis Clayson, Nicole Dubreuil-Blondin,Thomas Crow, Clement Greenberg, John Wilson Foster, Allan Sekula, Henri Lefebvre, Marcelin Pleynet, Paul Hayes Tucker, et al.

Editorial Review

Product Description
A landmark in art history and the most anticipated art publishing event of the new millennium.
In this groundbreaking and original work of scholarship, four of the most influential and provocative art historians of our time have come together to provide a comprehensive history of art in the twentieth century, an age when artists in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere sought to overturn the traditions of the past and expectations of the present in order to invent new practices and forms.

Adopting a unique year-by-year approach, Foster, Krauss, Bois, and Buchloh present more than 50 short essays, each focusing on a crucial event—the creation of a seminal work, the publication of an artistic manifesto, the opening of a major exhibition—to tell the story of the dazzling diversity of practice and interpretation that characterizes the art of the period. All the turning points and breakthroughs of modernism and postmodernism are explored in depth, as are the frequent and sustained antimodernist reactions that proposed alternative visions of art and the world. Illustrating the authors' texts are more than 300 of the most important works of the century, many reproduced in full color.

The book's flexible structure and extensive cross-referencing allow readers to follow any one of the many narratives that unfold, whether that be the history of a medium such as photography or painting, the development of art in a particular country, the influence of a movement such as surrealism or feminism, or the emergence of a stylistic or conceptual category like abstraction or minimalism. Boxes give further background information on the important figures and issues.

In their insightful introductions, the four authors explain the different methods of art history at work in the book, providing the reader with the conceptual tools for further study. A roundtable discussion at the close of the book considers the questions raised by the preceding decades and look ahead to the art of the future. A glossary of terms and concepts completes this extraordinary volume.

5-0 out of 5 stars For a survey, it's one of the best
Forget Gardener, these four giants of art history compile an international picture. Each year is represented by an article. One can read the book chronologically, topically, or by author. If you have to read a survey of art history, this is it.

5-0 out of 5 stars student review
This book was recommended for the senior-level art history course at the art academy I currently attend. Clear, erudite reading, followed by colorful reproductions and chronological tabs. The visual breakdowns are though-provoking, often raising more than one opinion of the piece. Elaboration on the artist, their backround, and their life really helps the reader understand the piece of art and the subject matter.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book, though not very "pretty"
I am currently getting my bachelors in art history, and have a soft spot for beautiful books. The Art Since 1900 book was very useful in my modern art class, and fascinating to read. It does not read like a textbook. Rather, it is a series of essays regarding specific moments in modern art. The authors provide keys to link relevant essays without having to figure out the relations of time, place, and style. There are plenty of images, and the writing is very accessible for a beggining modernist. However, it is a paperback that is easily shelf-worn, and the book itself is not particularly beautiful, in comparison to many of the art history survey books that are out there. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description

Written by and about New Englanders, this book is relevant to others attempting to address conservation problems on a regional basis. These are the stories of people acting the New England way—recognizing a need, taking on a responsibility without being asked, and applying the Yankee attitude in order to bring about tangible conservation gains. But above all, the account is one of hope for the future for, as the authors document, conditions at the turn of the 20th century were of a nature we would not tolerate today: cut and burned-over forests, eroded topsoil, depleted farmlands, streams choked with refuse and pollution, and species at the very brink of extinction. The stories told here are of people using what they had, setting to work to remedy these conditions, and doing so successfully. At a time of growing concern for the environment both locally and globally, theirs is a story certain to inform and inspire the next generation of conservation leaders.

Editorial Review

Product Description
October: The Second Decade collects examples of the innovative critical and theoretical work for which the journal October is known. A journal anthology draws a collective portrait; together, the gathered texts demonstrate the journal's ambitions and strengths. From the outset, October's aim has been to consider a range of cultural practices and to assess their place at a particular historical juncture. That task has now taken on an intensified urgency. The catastrophic state of our urban economies and the attendant social crises, as well as the more general predicaments of a postcolonial era, have had an inescapable impact on the cultural and discursive practices that are October's concern. Hence, October in its second decade has had an intensified concern with the role of cultural production within the public sphere and a sharper focus on the intersections of cultural practices with institutional structures. The topics of inquiry include body politics and psychoanalysis, spectacle and institutional critique, art practice and art history, and postcolonial discourse.Contributors: Carol Armstrong, Leo Bersani, Homi Bhabha, Yve-Alain Bois, Mikkel Borch-Jacobsen, Benjamin H.

Product Description
D.H. LAWRENCE: SYMBOLIC LANDSCAPES

This book analyzes the rich discourses of mythology, symbolism, form, eroticism and landscape in D.H.Lawrence's fiction. Jane Foster traces Lawrence's symbols (tigers, suns, fish, peacocks) in many of the short stories, as well as the major novels. 'Spirit of place' was always important for Lawrence, and Foster's study investigates how Lawrence's concept of place informed his fiction, poetry and travel books.

EXTRACT

Lawrence uses many traditional poetic symbols - flowers, fire, the Moon - but there are some symbols that he has made very much his own: blood, rivers, the phallus, rainbow and the Lawrencean bestiary: horse, phoenix, peacock, dragon, snake, lion, tiger, rabbit and fish. The Lawrencean animals are the most alive of living symbols. There are many symbolic beasts in the poems too: fish, tortoises, snakes, eagles, elephants, mosquitoes, goats, etc.

•••••

D.H. Lawrence probably uses more flowers in his art than any other comparable writer. The poems are full of flowers - irises, violets, roses, campions - all kinds of flowers, hundreds of flowers, blossoms and plants. He fills his books with flowers rather like the Early Netherlandish painters filled their paintings of the Madonna with heaps of flowers.

Lawrence uses flower symbolism to underpin the action and the emotional states of his characters. Ursula, for instance, delights, as Connie Chatterley does, in flowers. They remind her of the beauty of the world when the pain of love becomes too much. In Women in Love, Ursula is transported, to use the old term, by some daisies floating in water:

She went along the bank towards the sluice. The daisies were scattered broadcast on the pond, tiny radiant things, like an exaltation, points of exaltation here and there. Why did they move so strongly and mystically? “Look,” he said, “your boat of purple paper is escorting them, and they are a convoy of rafts.

Some of the daisies came slowly towards her, hesitating, making a shy, bright little cotillion on the dark clear water. Their gay, bright candour moved her so much as they came near, that she was almost in tears. “Why are they so lovely?” she cried. “Why do I think them so lovely?”

With illustrations, bibliography and notes. ... Read more
