PAUL CHAN: PRESENT TENSE
This catalogue from Paul Chan’s first solo exhibition presents new works by one of the country's most provocative new media artists. Urgent, thoughtful, and compassionate, his works—which have been cited for their visual intensity and graphic flair—pose deeply philosophical questions in order to provoke awareness and debate. Born in Hong Kong, raised in Nebraska, and currently based in New York, Chan is the recipient of critical acclaim for his films, videos, and projected animations. He has most recently presented his work in group shows/screenings at the 2006 Whitney Biennial, MoMA, the 54th Carnegie International in Pittsburgh, and the 8th Biennale d'Art Contemporain de Lyon, France.

LUCA CAMBIASO 1527-1585
The first major U.S. exhibition of paintings by one of the principal figures of late-16th-century painting, Luca Cambiaso, 1527-1585 is the first major international traveling exhibition hosted by the Blanton since the museum's opening in April. The Blanton is the exclusive U.S. venue for the exhibition, providing a rare opportunity for the public to see first-hand over 120 works by a fascinating artist whose work has largely remained in his native Genoa. The range of works featured spans his entire development, showing the influence of Raphael and Michelangelo in his early years, the highly sophisticated and stylized Mannerism of his mature work, and the hints of early Baroque style that penetrate his later period. While drawings are displayed throughout the exhibition—including several of the startlingly modern, almost cubistic works which emerged in his later years—one section of the exhibition focuses on Cambiaso's influence as a draughtsman. The final section of the exhibition is dedicated to the work of Cambiaso's principal Genoese followers, demonstrating the artist's immediate influence and explaining the foundation of a distinctive school.
2006, 9 x 11 inches, 475 pp., color and b&w illus.
