by Eva Respini, Art In The Age Of The Internet Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Art In The Age Of The Internet books, Art in the Age of the Internet, 1989 to Today is the first major thematic group exhibition in the United States to examine the radical impact of internet culture on visual art. Featuring 60 artists, collaborations, and collectives, the exhibition is comprised of over 70 works across a variety of mediums, including painting, performance, photography, sculpture, video, web-based projects, and virtual reality. The exhibition is divided into five sections that explore themes such as emergent ideas of the body and notions of human enhancement; the internet as a site of both surveillance and resistance; the circulation and control of images and information; the possibilities for exploring identity and community afforded by virtual domains; and new economies of visibility accelerated by social media. Throughout, the work in the exhibition addresses the internet-age democratization of culture that comprises our current moment. The earliest work in the exhibition is from 1989, the year that Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web. This development, and others that followed in quick succession, modernized the internet, and in the process radically changed our way of life--from how we access and generate information, make friends and share experiences, to how we imagine our future bodies and how nations police national security. 1989 also marked a watershed moment across the globe, with significant shifts in politics, geographies, and economies. Events such as the fall of the Berlin Wall and protests in Tiananmen Square signaled the beginning of our current globalized age, which cannot be imagined without the internet.
by Tula Giannini, Museums And Digital Culture Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Museums And Digital Culture books, This book explores how digital culture is transforming museums in the 21st century. Offering a corpus of new evidence for readers to explore, the authors trace the digital evolution of the museum and that of their audiences, now fully immersed in digital life, from the Internet to home and work. In a world where life in code and digits has redefined human information behavior and dominates daily activity and communication, ubiquitous use of digital tools and technology is radically changing the social contexts and purposes of museum exhibitions and collections, the work of museum professionals and the expectations of visitors, real and virtual. Moving beyond their walls, with local and global communities, museums are evolving into highly dynamic, socially aware and relevant institutions as their connections to the global digital ecosystem are strengthened. As they adopt a visitor-centered model and design visitor experiences, their priorities shift to engage audiences, convey digital collections, and tell stories through exhibitions. This is all part of crafting a dynamic and innovative museum identity of the future, made whole by seamless integration with digital culture, digital thinking, aesthetics, seeing and hearing, where visitors are welcomed participants. The international and interdisciplinary chapter contributors include digital artists, academics, and museum professionals. In themed parts the chapters present varied evidence-based research and case studies on museum theory, philosophy, collections, exhibitions, libraries, digital art and digital future, to bring new insights and perspectives, designed to inspire readers. Enjoy the journey!

by Deichtorhallen (Hamburg), Art Economy Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Art Economy books, Globalization expands and contracts daily, as art and artists cross and recross borders. Motorcycles, fashion houses, and vacuum cleaners find themselves exhibited in art museums, complete with their corporate identities intact. Corporate collections grow in size and influence, while Saatchi & Saatchi and Altoids Curiously Strong Mints roll off gallery-goers' tongues. Art & Economy gathers together essays which take a variety of stands on these multiple interrelations, as well as on artists whose work deals directly with our economic reality, such as Acces Local, Liam Gillick, Eva Grubinger, and Peter Zimmerman. It goes without saying that this book is a good deal.
by Sue Welsh Reed, French Prints From The Age Of The Musketeers Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download French Prints From The Age Of The Musketeers books, Experience the life of seventeenth-century France through close-up views of life during the reign of Louis XIII in this handsomely produced exhibition catalogue. An astonishing amount of visual documentation of this period was captured in prints, yet many of them are rare and the artists little known. French Prints from the Age of the Musketeers (Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, October 21, 1998 - January 10, 1999) provides a picture of the diversity of printmaking in France between 1610 and 1660. It includes 126 works by 50 printmakers arranged by topic - genre, current events, landscapes, portraits, religious subjects and allegories. Among the painter-etchers are Jacques Bellange, Claude Lorrain, Laurent de La Hyre and Simon Vouet, while graphic artists include Jacques Callot and Abraham Bosse. Less familiar image makers such as Richelieu's architect Jacques Lemercier, portraitists Jean Morin and Robert Nanteuil and the inventive Pierre Brebiette will be a revelation to the American public. There is no other book in the English language as extensive on this subject.
