Here in LA, Paul Young has been working pretty hard for the past few years on a book that will finally be published by Taschen sometime this month (according to their website):

I understand the book will be, as Taschen books usually are, very heavily illustrated, and accompanied by an essay that gives a necessarily succinct but thorough history of the landscape of art in cinema, artists' film/video, experimental film/video, avant-garde blah blah whatever we wanna call it.
Haven't read the text myself, but one reliable and eminent historian/scholar on the subject who checked it for Paul told me he thought it was really quite good.
Anyway, thought this would be of interest.
