Alexander Calder a animé la sculpture et élaboré une pratique artistique en dialogue constant avec le monde en mouvement et le mouvement dans les objets. L'esprit curieux de Calder, son amour des matériaux et sa prédisposition pour l'invention lui ont permis de rejeter les hiérarchies artistiques traditionnelles et d'établir son propre ensemble de principes sur le fonctionnement de l'art à partir de nouvelles réalités scientifiques, pour accéder à "une possibilité neuve de beauté". Cet ouvrage accompagne l'exposition Alexander Calder : un inventeur radical, organisée et mise en tournée par le Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal en collaboration avec la Calder Foundation. 240 pages, plus de 250 illustrations.

In 1956, James Lee Byars rented a sod farm for a midnight, full moon exhibition of his abstract figure sculptures; guests viewed the work from sleds pulled over snow. In 1959, he abandoned durable materials for paper and fabric. In 1965, a nun performed his A 1,000-Foot Chinese Paper at the Carnegie International. The wondrous story of James Lee Byars begins in 1932 and ends in 1997, and its unique synthesis of Conceptual art, Minimalism, and Fluxus reflects an unending striving for beauty and perfection. The story passes by way of Japan, a place where Byars lived for many years, and where he combined the formal and symbolic aspects of Noh theater and Shinto rituals with elements of Western science, art, and philosophy, developing an appreciation for the transient, ceremonial character of performance as an essential quality of his art. Over his lifetime, he was known for works characterized by an extreme simplicity of form and material that simultaneously appeared astonishingly luxurious. Life, Love, and Death presents a critical review of Byars' oeuvre and traces his development as an artist from his formative period in Japan to his later years in New York--ranging from his performances and works on paper and fabric devoted to the theme of life, to his splendid late sculptures in gold, marble, and velvet which deal with death as the embodiment of perfection.
