Art's Prospect: The Challenge of Tradition in an Age of Celebrity - Taschenbuch

2005, ISBN: 9781566635097

Gebundene Ausgabe, ID: 830901049

University of Nevada Press, Reno: 2005. Softcover. Brand new book. This is a story that few know, but those who do are its disciples. The story, of the highest and driest of all American deserts, the Great Basin, has no finer voice than that of William Fox. Fox's book is divided into the three sections of the title. In "The Void," he leads us through the Great Basin landscape, investigating our visual response to itÑa pattern of mountains and valleys on a scale of such magnitude and emptiness and undifferentiated by shape, form, and color that the visual and cognitive expectations of the human mind are confounded and impaired. "The Grid" leads us on a journey through the evolution of cartography in the nineteenth century and the explorations of John Charles FrŽmont to the net of maps, section markers, railroads, telegraph lines, and highways that humans have thrown across the void throughout history. "The Sign" wends us through the metaphors and language we continue to place around and over the void, revealing the Great Basin as a palimpsest where, for example, the neon boulevards of Las Vegas interplay with ancient petroglyphs. In this one-of-a-kind travel book that allows us to travel within our own neurophysiological processes as well as out into the arresting void of the Great Basin, Fox has created a dazzling new standard at the frontier of writing about the American West. His stunning and broad insight draws from the fields of natural history, cognitive psychology, art history, western history, archaeology, and anthropology, and will be of value to scholars and readers in all these subjects. Bill Fox remains stubbornly outside the ability of critics to label him. An independent scholar, a cultural geographer, an essayist, a poet, a travel writer, Fox consistently brings together unexpected fields of knowledge in order to illuminate the subjects at hand. He has been an arts consultant, curator, and visiting scholar at the Getty Research Institute. He has written widely on the nature of deserts and the role of the arts in American culture. He is the author of numerous articles and books; his work on cognition and the landscape includes time in the Antarctic as a visiting writer with the National Science Foundation and work in the Arctic with NASA on the Haughton-Mars Project. He lives in Burbank. "an engaging book, full of lucid theories about the stories and misrepresentations that we build around foreign landscapes." ÑFrancie Lin, associate editor of Threepenny Review "Éa creative and penetrating look É Fox's work is fascinating, studded with rich deposits of fact, revelation, and speculation." ÑJonathan Cook, Western American Literature Spring 2002, University of Nevada Press, Reno: 2005, Ivan R. Dee, Publisher, September 2003. Hardcover Hardcover. New. ''Where is Evelyn Waugh when you need him?'' asks art critic, <i>New Criterion</i> editor and respected literary critic Roger Kimball. ''I mean, where is the satirist with a boot big and swift and hard enough for the collective backside of today's art world?'' Kimball comes close to being the satirist he pines for. He's not afraid to speak what he feels (yes, and not what he <i>ought</i> to say) in this collection of reviews and essays spanning the last two decades. Kimball waxes and wanes on art, the artist, art historians, art critics and the general atmosphere of the art world with the regularity of the moon in its phases, offering praise and criticism with a vivifying impartiality. Almost every piece begins with or includes a thoughtful literary allusion, the most notable being a lengthy quote from T.S. Eliot's ''Tradition and the Individual Talent,'' which handily marks good art's continuity with the past. In fact, it's Kimball's knack for identifying and reminding us of the confluence of literature and visual art that makes this volume worth getting. His span includes particular exhibitions and museums, reviews of books on art theory, history and biography, and the works of Paul Klee, Van Gogh, Renoir, Edward Burne-Jones, Mary Cassatt, Paul Gauguin and the contemporary painter William Bailey. Though Kimball's subtitle for the book acts more as underpinning than thesis, his reoccurring discussion of beauty's capacity to inspire and create silence through the representation of ''permanent things'' is a theory worth mulling for one's own art and inspiration., Ivan R. Dee, Publisher

Art&apos;s Prospect: The Challenge Of Tradition In An Age Of Celebrity - neues Buch

ISBN: 9781566635097

ID: 978156663509

Observing our contemporary culture, the distinguished critic Roger Kimball sees that the avant-garde assault on tradition has long since degenerated into a sclerotic orthodoxy. He finds that the cutting edge, as defined by the established tastemakers, turns out time and again to be a stale remainder of past impotence. And he locates a pretense that the traditional is the enemy rather than a springboard to originality. In Art''s Prospect, Mr. Kimball observes that most of the really invigorating action in the art world today is a quiet affair. It takes place not at the Tate Modern in London or at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, not in the Chelsea or TriBeCa galleries but off to one side, out of the limelight. It usually involves not the latest thing but permanent things-they can be new or old, but their relevance is measured not by the buzz they create but by silences they inspire. With reviews and essays composed over the last twenty years and revised for this book, Art''s Prospect illuminates some of the chief spiritual itineraries of modern art. It provides, in Mr. Kimball''s words, a collage whose elements, when seen from one perspective, add up to a diagnosis of a malady, and, when seen from another perspective, offer hints of where effective remedies can be found.

Most of the really invigorating action in the art world today is a quiet affair, Mr. Kimball observes. It usually involves not the latest thing but permanent things--they can be new or old, but their relevance is measured not by the buzz they create but by the silences they inspire. With reviews and essays composed over the last twenty years and revised for this book, Art's Prospect illuminates some of the chief spiritual itineraries of modern art. There is much to be learned and enjoyed in these stimulating, provocative, and elegant essays. --Paul Johnson Art's Prospect: The Challenge of Tradition in an Age of Celebrity Kimball, Roger, Ivan R.
