Croce, Arlene

Writing in the Dark, Dancing in The New Yorker

Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2000

GV 1624.5 .N4 C79 2000

This work is a collection of articles written for The New Yorker during Croce’s 30 years as a dance critic for the magazine. In the introduction the author provides valuable contextual information about the state of the magazine, the world, and dance during the time that the essays were penned. The 100-plus articles touch on the most well-known and controversial figures and issues of the time. An index is included. Croce’s article on Pilobolus is a perceptive description of this group’s work, their interaction, and unpredictability. Her article on Alvin Ailey’s Revelations seeks to position that work in the context of the recent works by Ailey’s American Dance Theater.

Cindy Sherman Retrospective

Thames & Hudson, 2000

Not Yet Received

This comprehensive catalogue traces the career of Cindy Sherman, examining her achievements as one of the leading American artists of our time. Provocative and engaging, the vivid physicality of Sherman’s photographs is the key to their dramatic power. By exploring the myriad constructions of female identity and culture, Sherman imitates and confronts assorted representational stereotypes, becoming for many an icon of the contemporary concerns of feminism and postmodernism. Essayists Amanda Cruz, Elizabeth A.T. Smith, and Amelia Jones offer keen insight and observations from several distinct vantage points, demonstrating that Sherman’s work is a lens through which to view contemporary art and its ongoing concern with the profound issues of the structures of the self. More than 200 images show the breadth of Sherman’s body of work, from the Untitled Film Stills of the 1970s to series such as Centerfolds, Fashion, Disasters, Fairy Tales, and History Portraits, as well as photographs influenced by surrealist artists. Also included are intriguing excerpts from Sherman’s notebooks, selections from her contact sheets, and numerous Polaroid studies, all of which shed light on the artist’s process.

The Technique of Film & Video Editing contains the best training for aspiring directors and editors, providing a detailed, precise look at the artistic and aesthetic principles and practices of editing for both picture and sound. A comprehensive history of editing is accomplished through analyses of photographs from dozens of classic and contemporary films and videos. Practical skills are grounded by an exposition of the ideas and styles of editing through which the director can understand the visual tools at his or her disposal. This book puts into context the storytelling choices an editor will have to make against a background of theory, history, and practices. Covering cutting edge topics such as the influence of new technology on the art of editing and the appropriation of style over content, the latest edition examines the editing characteristics of nonlinear storytelling. As well, there is new material focusing on the trend of documentary as mainstream entertainment (e.g., Fahrenheit 9/11, The Fog of War) and the possibilities that digital audio effects present.
