Image and text taken from here "Nathan Oliveira's (1928--2010) passion for continuing an inner-directed artistic tradition attached to the human subject persisted throughout his more than forty years as a painter and master printmaker." Ian Wallace at the Intersection of Painting and Photography 709.2/WALL
Image and text taken from here "Ian Wallace: At the Intersection of Painting and Photography is a monograph on the photographic work of one of Canada’s most significant contemporary artists." Confrontational Ceramics 738.0922/SCHW
"The show comprises 28 limited edition prints that Hockney has drawn on his computer using Photoshop and Graphics Tablet. Hockney stated that it is only in the last year that computer software has advanced enough to keep up with the artist’s hand and allow sufficient sensitivity of colour and painterly line."
How Aborigines Invented the Idea of Contemporary Art
"This is the first anthology to chronicle the global critical reception of Aboriginal art since the early 1980s, when the art world began to understand it as contemporary art. Featuring 96 authors--including art critics and historians, curators, art center co-ordinators and managers, artists, anthropologists, sociologists, philosophers and novelists--it conveys a diversity of thinking and approaches."
"Widely considered to be one of the most significant cultural figures of his generation in China and internationally, Ai Weiwei successfully occupies multiple roles as a conceptual artist, architect, curator, designer, film-maker, publisher and activist." An Introduction to Nineteenth Century Art 709.03/FACO
Image and text taken from here "Using the tools of the "new" art history (feminism, Marxism, social context, etc.) An Introduction to Nineteenth-Century Art offers a richly textured, yet clear and logical, introduction to nineteenth-century art and culture. This textbook will provide readers with a basic historical framework of the period and the critical tools for interpreting and situating new and unfamiliar works of art." Sophie Calle: True Stories 779.092/CALL
Image and text taken from here "quickly acclaimed as a photo book classic, and now expanded and reissued in this first English-language edition from Actes Sud, True Stories gathers a series of short autobiographical texts and photos by Sophie Calle. Calles projects have frequently drawn on episodes from her own life, but this book--part visual memoir, part meditation on the resonances of photographs and belongings--is as close as she has come to producing an autobiography, albeit one highly poetical and fragmentary."
Artist Residencies Abroad @ NAS. Art Forum Three recent residents of the National Art School’s Storrier Onslow Studio at La Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris and the British School at Rome Residency will talk about their experiences. The artists, Mason Kimber, Sophie Homeier, Dr Ella Dreyfus, will speak about the opportunities they had to develop their research in creative environments in these two vibrant, contemporary cities, steeped in history.
700.5/NATI ARTI D767 Gillian Dunlop @ NAS. Art Forum Dr Gillian Dunlop discusses the time-honoured but little-known techniques used
by portrait artists since 1430. While these devices predate the camera obscura,
they have links to photography and were brought to light through important
research undertaken by British artist David Hockney. Dunlop also elaborates on
the relationship between the work of a portrait artist and that of a rhinoplasty
surgeon, which is her day job. A type of sculpture of the living body.
700.5/NATI DUNL D768 Dr Fabio Barry @ NAS. Art Forum A womb with a view: Santa Maria dei Miracoli, Venice, and the architectural imaginary of the Virgin Mary. Dr Fabio Barry gives an analysis of the inventive and visionary reciprocity
between painting and architecture in the church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli,
built by the sculptor-architect Pietro Lombardo and his workshop between 1481
and 1489. The lecture will argue that in staging the Mass and putting the Virgin
on a pedestal the architect employed the same visual and mental construct that
the painter Giovanni Bellini invented in re-conceptualizing Venetian
altarpieces, especially those dedicated to the Virgin.
Tom Moore @ NAS: more is more. Art Forum Tom Moore discusses the traditional and innovative glass techniques he applies
to breathe life into his eccentric hybrid glass specimens and dreamscape
dioramas. Since 1999, Tom has been the production manager at Jam Factory Craft
and Design in Adelaide, where he makes varied commissioned items, and trains
graduates in glass production and exhibition work. Tom embraces new technologies
through collaboration with digital photographers and animators. Tom has been
featured in exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney and the
Gallery Of Modern Art in Brisbane.
700.5/NATI MOOR D163 Bianca Hester @ NAS: registering expressive terrains. Art Forum. Bianca Hester’s practice explores the convergences between social space, materiality and embodiment as processes in motion. Her recent projects experiment with the various limits that regulate territories by developing strategies for addressing the ways spaces are constructed. Her practice explores the manifold rhythms at play within situations and the work she produces involves the fashioning of site-based alterations, actions, constructions, objects, collaborations and video.
