In this classic tale, Richard Kim paints seven vivid scenes from a boyhood and early adolescence in Korea at the height of the Japanese occupation, 1932 to 1945. Taking its title from the grim fact that the occupiers forced the Koreans to renounce their own names and adopt Japanese names instead, the book follows one Korean family through the Japanese occupation to the surrender of the Japanese empire. Lost Names is at once a loving memory of family and a vivid portrayal of life in a time of anguish.

With essays by Alex Alberro, Stephen Bann, Jon Bird, David Campany, Helen Molesworth, Michael Newman, Peter Osborne, Birgit Pelzer, Desa Philipagesi, Anne Rorimer, Peter Wollen and William Wood. An international movement that followed specific geographical-cultural patterns, Conceptual Art built on the legacy of Marcel Duchamp, redefining the institutional and social relationships among production, work and audience in ways which have comprehensively transformed the nature of the art object and forms of artistic practice, both historically and in the present. Investigating and documenting the histories, theories and forms of Conceptual Art, this timely book, including both established writers and a new generation of art historians, shows that Conceptual Art was a broad movement encompassing a range of artistic tendencies. This is the most stimulating account of the movement to date, arguing forcefully for its vitality and potential as well as examining its influence on art today.

"Fragments et Obstacles" porte sur l'oeuvre de Stephane Mallarme, le Maitre de la Poesie symboliste en France au XIXe siecle, et analyse ces poemes consideres comme acheves -, par opposition a ceux qui ont ete laisses inacheves par l'auteur, ou parfois l'inachevement est tout simplement 'suggere' par l'emploi original de l'espace entre fragments a l'interieur d'un poeme. La lecture des fragments mallarmeens demande un travail de synthese ou de finition par les lecteurs ou artistes. Toute son oeuvre devient ainsi un reve ultime (et inacheve) presentant un eventail de possibilites, comme on peut apprecier dans les versions d'"Un Coup de des jamais n'abolira le hasard" par Andre Masson, Ellsworth Kelly, Marcel Broodthaers, Christiane Vielle et Liliana Spadavecchia, parmi d'autres. Par le contact direct avec des artistes contemporains, cet ouvrage temoigne d'une lecture de Mallarme qui rend hommage a sa vision de la litterature, car le poete ne cesse de confirmer que le "Livre" est un heritage universel, qui engage le createur et visionnaire esthetique aussi bien que l'illustrateur, le peintre ou l'artisan."

Reading Cy Twombly

Many of Cy Twombly’s paintings and drawings include handwritten words and phrases—naming or quoting poets ranging from Sappho, Homer, and Virgil to Mallarmé, Rilke, and Cavafy. Enigmatic and sometimes hard to decipher, these inscriptions are a distinctive feature of his work. Reading Cy Twombly poses both literary and art historical questions. How does poetic reference in largely abstract works affect their interpretation? Reading Cy Twombly is the first book to focus specifically on the artist’s use of poetry. Twombly’s library formed an extension of his studio and he sometimes painted with a book open in front of him. Drawing on original research in an archive that includes his paint-stained and annotated books, Mary Jacobus’s account—richly illustrated with more than 125 color and black-and-white images—unlocks an important aspect of Twombly’s practice. Jacobus shows that poetry was an indispensable source of reference throughout Twombly’s career; as he said, he “never really separated painting and literature.” Among much else, she explores the influence of Ezra Pound and Charles Olson; Twombly’s fondness for Greek pastoral poetry and Virgil’s Eclogues; the inspiration of the Iliad and Ovid’s Metamorphoses; and Twombly’s love of Keats and his collaboration with Octavio Paz. Twombly’s art reveals both his distinctive relationship to poetry and his use of quotation to solve formal problems. A modern painter, he belongs in a critical tradition that goes back, by way of Roland Barthes, to Baudelaire. Reading Cy Twombly opens up fascinating new readings of some of the most important paintings and drawings of the twentieth century.
