New Books Available in the Zabar Art Library

Priority: Informational

 

New faculty book available for use in the Zabar Art Library, Room 1608 Hunter North Building

Co-authors:  David Carrier and Joachim Pissarro, Bershad Professor of Art History and Director of the Hunter College Galleries, Hunter College /CUNY

Wild Art is a visual exploration of everything and anything from outside the exclusive and rarefied spectrum of the ‘Art World’.
It presents a highly illustrated account of the most exciting examples of the vast multitude of ‘other’ art worlds – mostly left unmentioned within the professional art literature – that proliferate outside the boundaries of the Art World. The art that most professionals – art critics, art historians, artists, auctioneers, collectors and dealers tend to ignore.
At its heart, this book raises the question of what constitutes 'art' by celebrating the artists and art forms that are usually ignored by the art establishment.

Mike Kelley / edited by Eva Meyer-Hermann and Lisa Gabrielle Mark ; organized by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.

MoMA PS1 presents Mike Kelleythe largest exhibition of the artist’s work to-date and the first comprehensive survey since 1993. Regarded as one of the most influential artists of our time, Mike Kelley (1954–2012) produced a body of deeply innovative work mining American popular culture and both modernist and alternative traditions—which he set in relation to relentless self- and social examinations, both dark and delirious. Bringing together over 200 works, from early pieces made during the 1970s through 2012, the exhibition occupies the entire museum.
