Jim Dine

Jim Dine exhibition catalogue for a show that ran February 27 through April 19, 1970 at the Whitney, New York.

Jim Dine (born June 16, 1935) is an American pop artist. He is sometimes considered to be a part of the Neo-Dada movement, first earning attention in the art world with his Happenings, alongside peers such as Claes Oldenburg, Allan Kaprow, John Cage, etc. in the late 1950s/early 1960s. In 1962 Dine’s work was included, along with Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Robert Dowd, Phillip Hefferton, Joe Goode, Edward Ruscha, and Wayne Thiebaud, in the historically important and ground-breaking New Painting of Common Objects, curated by Walter Hopps at the Norton Simon Museum. This exhibition is historically considered one of the first “Pop Art” exhibitions in America. These painters started a movement, in a time of social unrest, which shocked America and the art world. The Pop Art movement fundamentally altered the nature of modern art.

Yayoi Kusama
Love Forever: Yayoi Kusama, 1958-1968 / In Full Bloom: Yayoi Kusama, Years in Japan

 

The original two-volume Japanese slipcase edition, published in conjunction with the exhibition “Love Forever: Yayoi Kusama, 1958-1968” which travelled between Japan and the US in 1999. This edition was available for the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo staging of the exhibition, and has been long out of print. Both volumes here are lavishly illustrated throughout with colour photographs of Yayoi Kusama’s history of work – the first book (“Love Forever: Yayoi Kusama, 1958-1968”) being a catalogue for the exhibition, featuring essays and documentation of the works in the exhibit spanning the years 1958-1968, including her New York happenings, whilst the second book (“In Full Bloom: Yayoi Kusama, Years in Japan”) illuminates many rarely seen works outside of Japan. Accompanied by texts, an interview and an exhibition history, this book is broken into the sections 1945-1959, 1970-1999 and is densely illustrated with colour documentation of her work created in Japan. Together chronicling Kusama’s life of creating work across painting, collage, soft sculpture, performance art, and environmental installations, of which most exhibit her thematic interest in psychedelic colours, repetition, and pattern, this comprehensive and collectable publication illustrates an extremely influential artist’s life of work. Based in conceptual art, Kusama’s work shows attributes of Feminism, Minimalism, Surrealism, Art Brut, Pop Art, Nouvelle Tendence (Op, Kinetic, etc.) and Abstract Expressionism, and is infused with autobiographical, psychological, and sexual content. Kusama is truly uncategorizable, and is celebrated as one of the most important living artists to come out of Japan, and an important voice of the avant-garde.

Nicholas Krushenick

 
Comprehensive catalogue on American painter Nicholas Krushenick (1929-1999) published on the occasion of a major exhibition in Hannover, June 26 to 24 September, 1972. Heavily illustrated throughout with his bold paintings in Pop Abstraction, predominately in striking colour. A great book.

Nicholas Krushenick (May 31, 1929 – February 5, 1999) was an American abstract painter whose artistic style straddled the line between Op Art, Pop Art, Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism and Color Field. He was active in the New York art scene in the 1960s and 1970s, before he withdrew and focused his time as a professor at the University of Maryland for almost thirty years until his death in 1999. Initially experimenting with a more Abstract Expressionist inspired style and cut paper collage, Krushenick is more well known for his paintings which use bold Liquitex colors and juxtaposing black lines, which fall under the category of pop abstraction. In fact, he is a singular figure within that style.

* Condition: Very Good (light cover rubbing/wear, otherwise tight and clean throughout) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.
