John Chamberlain rose to prominence in the late 1950s with energetic, vibrant sculptures hewn from disused car parts, achieving a three-dimensional form of Abstract Expressionism that astounded critics and captured the imaginations of fellow artists. For a seven-year period in the mid-1960s, the artist abandoned automotive metal and turned to other materials. Motivated by scientific curiosity, Chamberlain produced sculptures in unorthodox media, such as urethene foam, galvanized steel, paper bags, mineral-coated Plexiglas and aluminum foil. Since returning in 1972 to metal as his primary material, Chamberlain limited himself to specific parts of the automobile, adding color to found car parts, dripping, spraying and patterning on top of existing hues to an often wild effect. In recent years, the artist has embarked on the production of a new body of work that demonstrates a decided return to earlier themes. John Chamberlain: Choices accompanies the Guggenheim Museum exhibition, which comprises 95 works, from the artist’s earliest monochromatic iron sculptures to the outsized foil creations he is working on today, encompassing shifts in scale, material and methods informed by the collage process that has been central to Chamberlain’s working method. This fully illustrated exhibition catalogue includes essays by Susan Davidson, Donna De Salvo, Dave Hickey, Adrian Kohn and Charles Ray with an extensive chronology by Helen Hsu and a lexicon by Don Quaintance.

Inspired by the symmetrical, Jeffersonian layout of the American Pavilion's Neoclassical architecture, and by Thomas Cole's cycle of the same name, Ed Ruscha installed this ten-painting exhibition titled Course of Empire at the 2005 Venice Biennale. Five pieces are painted in color and five in black and white. The artist paired each work from his 1992 Blue Collar series with a new color canvas depicting the future of the same urban landscape, some deteriorated, some growing and changing, some seemingly gentrifying. The exhibition will travel in 2006 to The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Essays from Linda Norden, the U.S. Commissioner for the Venice Biennale, and artist Frances Stark celebrate the work, while Joan Didion's coolly written but deeply felt piece about her own brokenhearted longing for Los Angeles hits a perfect note.

What is the future of the art museum? Should artists and critics have greater say in museum programming? What role can new museum technologies play in the future of the art museum? How should art museums address and correct past histories of prejudice and exclusion? Are art museums doomed to extinction? These pertinent questions and others are asked, discussed and sometimes even answered in Museums of Tomorrow--documentation of a two-week online conference on the role and future of art museums. Thirty scholars, artists, museum directors and curators participated in the discussion which was moderated by curator and essayist Maurice Berger for the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum's Research Center Website.

What is Postmodernism, and is it a useful concept for understanding American art and visual culture of the past 40 years? When and to what extent did Modernism wane as a phenomenon in American art? How have the various liberation movements, from civil rights to feminism, influenced American art and culture and contributed to the rejections of the Modernist ethos? How has globalism changed American art and culture? How have the new technologies of the past 50 years--television, personal computers, the Internet--altered the nature of progressive art in the United States? Are any of these changes intrinsically Postmodern? These issues and more were debated during the two-week online conference The Modern/Postmodern Dialectic: American Art and Culture, 1965-2000, held on the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum website during Octobert 2001. Postmodernism: A Virtual Discussion gathers the edited proceedings, with contributions from an international group of scholars, artists and curators, including Dan Cameron, Donna DeSalvo, Wendy Ewald, Chrissie Iles, Catherine Lord, Olu Oguibe, Yvonne Rainer and Robert Rosenblum.
Andy Warhol: Prints, in its fourth edition, with corrections, is the definitive scholarly reference source for collectors, auction houses, libraries, curators, academics and art dealers. Andy Warhol spent his career working so prodigiously as to assure long-lasting renown. In the printmaking field alone, his output was prolific, and his appropriation of silkscreen as a fine-art medium forever altered the way prints look. This thoroughly revised and expanded fourth edition of Andy Warhol Prints: A Catalogue Raisonne 1962–1987 traces Warhol's complete graphic oeuvre from his first unique works on paper in 1962 through his final published portfolio in 1987.
More than 1,700 works are illustrated, an increase of 500 from the previous edition of the catalogue raisonné, and complete documentation is provided for each. New additions include a section focusing on Warhol's popular portraits, with documentation of prints that were related to paintings commissioned during the 1970s and 1980s, and a new supplement featuring prints and illustrated books from the 1950s, including the beloved 25 Cats Named Sam and One Blue Pussy.
An essay by Donna De Salvo addresses Warhol's self-published books and portfolios from the same era. An extensive chronology of printmaking activity, a complete exhibition history, a selected bibliography and a greatly expanded appendix to published prints complete the book.

Shopping--the word nowadays signifies more than the mere purchasing of goods. From the Paris arcades to the suburban mall, buying has been an essential part of urban life throughout the 20th century. As a ritual, shopping has both created and transformed our identities. For artists, consumer meccas and all their forms of presentation have long been a source of inspiration and criticism. If Walter Benjamin's description of the flaneur in turn-of-the-century Paris was the turning point in our understanding of the complex interchanges between consumer society and art, the cultural productions that followed his theorizing hardly proved him wrong. Consider only Pop Art, a mode of art making created by a generation of artists who themselves were designers of advertising materials, and who used those same products as source material for work that now hangs in museums. Shopping is the first publication to be extensively devoted to this topic. It documents and analyzes the fascination and influence of the fine arts, architecture, film, and music on the aesthetics, structure, and environment of consumer culture. Numerous illustrations reveal the crossover work of artists like Eug»ne Atget, Berenice Abbott, Walker Evans, Claes Oldenburg, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Christo, Duane Hanson, Barbara Kruger, Jeff Koons, Andreas Gursky, and others, as well as pieces conceived by fine artists, architects, and film makers. Complete with contributions by internationally renowned authors, Shopping serves as a diversified basis for the discussion of a topic more dear to us than most of us would admit. You simply must buy this book.

A modern update of the Medieval trade manuals--the 'come-along-with-me' (vade mecum) of Medieval craftsmen--Words of Wisdom: A Curator's Vade Mecum is an invaluable guidebook for anyone interested in contemporary art and the practice of curating. In over fifty short essays, this compendium offers advice to a new generation of curators from veterans of contemporary art exhibitions who, over the past 25 years, have played a crucial role in shaping what we see today, and how we see it. While providing an intimate look at the minds of these master curators, Words of Wisdom also establishes the curator's craft as an important vocation that has changed tremendously over the past quarter-century. In the course of their musings, the curators offer behind-the-scenes insights into influential exhibitions and institutions and the contemporary art world they represent. Among the contributors are Jean-Christophe Amman, director of the Museum of Modern Art, Frankfurt, Germany; Donna de Salvo, curator at the Tate Gallery, London; Richard Flood, chief curator at the Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis; independent curator Hans Ulrich Obrist; and Marcia Tucker, founding director of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York.

Staging Surrealism assesses what is perhaps the twentieth century’s most influential movement by tracing its legacy in contemporary art. René Magritte, Salvador Dali, Max Ernst and Man Ray (as well as Surrealist predecessors or comrades such Eugène Atget and André Kertész) are presented alongside contemporary artists in a section titled Correspondences: A Dream Album that features dream journals by such filmmakers and artists as Isaac Julien, Tom Kalin and Kara Walker. Essays by curator Donna De Salvo and Surrealist scholar and translator Mary Ann Caws consider the impact of Surrealism on art and culture today.

This publication borrows critic Harold Rosenberg's memorable phase “apocalyptic wallpaper” to describe the work of contemporary artists who have created wallpaper of their own design or appropriated the patterns of others, finding entirely new possibilities within this medium. Andy Warhol's celebrated Jersey Cow wallpaper, for example, humorously subverts the landscape motifs conventional wallpapers often use to bring nature indoors. Featured artists include Warhol, Robert Gober, Abigail Lane and Virgil Marti.
