Joan Miró : I work like a gardener
Miró, Joan, 1893-1983, author
New York : Princeton Architectural Press, [2017]
"In 1958, artist Joan Miro and critic Yvon Taillandier sat down for an in-depth discussion on Miro's life and work. Their conversation, one of the most illuminating and insightful looks into Miro's philosophy and creative process, was first published in a limited edition of seventy five copies in 1964. Though long out of print, this bilingual 'treasure,' in the words of Maria Popova, "remains the most direct and comprehensive record of Miro's ideas on art'. This beautiful new edition presents an updated English translation of Miro's invaluable text in an elegant and striking package. In addition to Taillandier's original foreword, a new preface by preeminent Miro scholar Robert Lubar provides wider context and insight. An appendix includes the original French text in its entirety. Joan Miro I Work Like a Gardener brings to life the words and work of one of the most beloved and influential artists of the twentieth century."--Back cover.

Pop art and design
edited by Anne Massey and Alex Seago
London, UK ; Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2018
"This book offers the first in-depth analysis of the relationship between art and design, which led to the creation of 'pop'. Challenging accepted boundaries and definitions, the authors seek out various commonalities and points of connection between these two exciting areas. Confronting the all-pervasive 'high art / low culture' divide, Pop Art and Design brings a fresh understanding of visual culture during the vibrant 1950s and 60s. This was an era when commercial art became graphic design, illustration was superseded by photography and high fashion became street fashion, all against the backdrop of a rapidly-evolving economic and political landscape, a glamorous youth scene and an effervescent popular culture. The book's central argument is that pop art relied on and drew inspiration from pop design, and vice versa. Massey and Seago assert that this relationship was articulated through the artwork, design, publications and exhibitions of a network of key practitioners. Pop Art and Design provides a case study in the broader inter-relationship between art and design, and constitutes the first interdisciplinary publication on the subject"--

Disturbing pasts : memories, controversies and creativity
edited by Leon Wainwright
Manchester : Manchester University Press, [2018]
This collection explores the creative responses of artists to the legacies of war, colonialism, genocide and oppression. Based on a major project of international collaboration supported by the European Science Foundation, it brings together professional art practices, art history and visual culture studies, social anthropology, literary studies, history, museology and cultural policy studies. Case studies are drawn from diverse contexts, including South Africa, Germany, Namibia, the United Kingdom, Nigeria, Indonesia, the Netherlands, Poland, Norway, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and Australia. The results reveal a courageous and carefully examined global picture, with a variety of new approaches to confronting dominant historical narratives and shaping alternative interpretations.--Google Books.

The break with the past : avant-garde architecture in Germany, 1910-1925
Barnstone, Deborah Ascher, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Between 1918 and 1933 the German interwar avant-garde was a primary force driving European cultural innovation and modernism. These innovations continue to influence artistic practice, theory, and arts education today, thus making a comprehensive study of the relationship between individual war experience and the immediate response of avant-garde architects after the war all the more important. The Break with the Past pursues several important, interrelated questions. What were the disparate war experiences of German architects and did they have different effects on Weimar cultural production? Did political orientation play a part in support for the war? In aesthetic choices? What changes occurred in avant-garde architectural practice after 1918? How do they compare with pre-war positions and practices and expectations for post-war outcomes? In order to address these questions, the book uses individual case studies of four leading architects, Bruno Taut, Walter Gropius, Erich Mendelsohn, and Hans Scharoun.

Cartoons in hard times : the animated shorts of Disney and Warner Brothers in depression and war 1932-1945
Mollet, Tracey Louise, author
New York : Bloomsbury Academic, [2017]
The storyboard so far -- The Roosevelt honeymoon 1932-1934 -- Animating depression America 1934-1937 -- International relations in animation 1936-1941 -- Animated nationalism 1937-1941 -- Animation at war: Disney, Warner Brothers and the United States government 1941-1943 -- Animation at war: Disney, Warner Brothers and war-time entertainment 1941-1945 -- That's all folks.

Cartoons in Hard Times provides a comprehensive analysis of the short subject animation released by the Walt Disney and Warner Brothers from 1932 and 1945, one of the most turbulent periods in Unites States history. Through a combination of content analysis, historical understanding and archival research, this book sheds new light on a hitherto unexplored area of animation, suggesting the ways in which Disney and Warner Brothers animation engaged with historical, social, economic and political changes in this era. The book also traces the development of animation into a medium fit for propaganda in 1941 and the changes in characters, tone, music and narrative that took place to facilitate this transition. Animation transformed in this era from a medium of entertainment, to a socio-political commentator before finally undertaking government sponsored propaganda during the Second World War.

Ann Hamilton : habitus
poems, Natalie Shapero, Susan Stewart ; contributors, Patricia C. Phillips, Susan Lubowsky Talbott
Philadelphia, PA : The Fabric Workshop and Museum ; 2017
Habitus / Ann Hamilton -- The nature of the rows: dyeings on wool / Natalie Shapero -- Channel / Susan Stewart -- The nature of the rows: blanket / Natalie Shapero -- The nature of the rows: commonplace / Natalie Shapero -- The nature of the rows: lace / Natalie Shapero -- The nature of the rows: doll / Natalie Shapero -- Creating habitus / Susan Lubowsky Talbott -- Of all things: an openness of completion / Patricia C. Phillips.

Cloth making -- among the oldest forms of human cultural production -- provides inspiration for Ann Hamilton's multi-venue project, 'habitus', located at three sites: The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Municipal Pier 9, and on social media. 'habitus' weaves text, textile, and image together as mediums for an imaginative and tactile exchange between artist and audience. The museum's galleries display Hamilton's selection of historical objects -- including literacy commonlace books, textile sample books, dolls, and needwork portfolios -- borrowed from Philadelphia museums and public collections. Printed passages from published writings referencing the social and material life of textiles, and collected through an open call to the public at http://cloth-a-commonplace.tumblr.com, will be available free to museum visitors. In the vast space of Municipal Pier 9 on the Delaware River, visitors propel a field of gigantic cylindrical curtains to billow to atmospheric proportion. As cloth swaddles us at birth and covers us in sleep; as a folded blanket can tell a story of trade; as a flag carries the symbol of a nation, Hamilton's multi-venue exhibition 'habitus' invites us to touch and be touched by the fabric of human experience -- Publisher's statement.

Yoshijiro Urushibara : a Japanese printmaker in London : a catalogue raisonné
Chapman, Hilary, author
Leiden, The Netherlands : Hotei Publishing, [2017]
This publication is a catalogue raisonné of the work of Urushibara Yoshijiro (1889-1953), who came to London at the age of twenty-one. During his thirty years in Europe he produced a remarkable number of prints and played a major role in encouraging the production and appreciation of the colour woodcut in the Japanese manner. His most famous and successful collaboration was with Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956) and throughout his career Urushibara contributed to the cross-cultural flowing between European and Japanese art at the beginning of the twentieth century.

Giovanni da Rimini : Scenes from the lives of the Virgin and other Saints
Koopstra, Anna, author
London : National Gallery, 2017
This monograph celebrates the National Gallery's 2015 acquisition of Giovanni da Rimini's 'Scenes from the Lives of the Virgin and Other Saints' (c. 1300--1305). The painting is a rare survival from the late Middle Ages, uniting the exquisite detail of late Byzantine icons with the new, more naturalistic and expressive style exemplified by the Florentine painter Giotto. Probably created for private contemplation and worship, the painting may be the left wing of a diptych, a theory that is examined here in relation to its assumed companion panel Scenes from the Life of Christ (from the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica, Palazzo Barberini, Rome). Significant new research explains its iconography, its devotional function, and the historical context in which it was created, while fresh technical analysis brings a greater understanding of the making and purpose of the panels and how they were originally displayed.

The global contemporary art world
Harris, Jonathan author
Hoboken, NJ : John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2017
Doing the business : producing consumption in the Hong Kong art world -- New media art and cultural globalism in South Korea -- Globalizing Indian contemporary art : the biennial as rhetorical form -- Social production of contemporary art in the PRC : higher education and the branding of 'contemporary Chinese art' -- Contemporary art and post-national identities in the State of Palestine.

This book takes readers on a fascinating journey around five Asian centers of contemporary art and its myriad institutions, agents, forms, materials, and languages, while posing vital questions about the political economy of culture and the power of visual art in a multi-polar world. He analyzes the financial powerhouse of Art Basel Hong Kong, new media art in South Korea, the place of the Kochi Biennale within contemporary art in India, transnational art and art education in China, and the geo-politics of art patronage in Palestine, and he develops a highly original synthesis of theoretical perspectives and empirical research. Drawing on detailed case studies and personal insights gained from his extensive experience of the contemporary art scene in Asia, Professor Harris examines the evolving relationship between the western centers of art practice, collection, and validation and the emerging peripheries of Asian Tiger societies with burgeoning art centers. And he arrives at the somewhat controversial conclusion that dominance of the art world is rapidly slipping away from Europe and North America. The Global Contemporary Art World is essential reading for undergraduates and postgraduate students in modern and contemporary art, art history, art theory and criticism, cultural studies, the sociology of culture, and globalization studies. It is also a vital resource for research students, academics, and professionals in the art world.

William Kentridge : smoke, ashes, fable
Kentridge, William, 1955- artist
[Brussels, Belgium] : Mercatorfonds, [2017]
Introduction -- Being Kentridge / Margaret K. Koerner -- Tummelplatz / Joseph Leo Koerner -- Feats of prestidigitation / Harmon Siegel -- Seven types of obsolescence / Bejamin H.D. Buchloh.

The well-known South African artist William Kentridge (b. 1955) has become famous for his time-lapse animation movies and installations, as well as his activities as an opera and theater director. This book offers a unique selection of Kentridge's work curated for Sint-Janshospitaal in Bruges--at 800 years one of Europe's oldest surviving hospital buildings--organized around the themes of trauma and healing. The book features an introduction by Margaret K. Koerner, and also includes essays by diverse distinguished contributors: Benjamin Buchloh considers Kentridge's alternate reception of the historical avant-garde from a perspective of exile; Joseph Leo Koerner explores the artist's work as a self-styled process of working in which the past simultaneously disfigures and redeems; and Harmon Siegel examines Kentridge's approach to film history.

Minoru Yamasaki : humanist architecture for a modernist world
Gyure, Dale Allen, author
New Haven ; Yale University Press [2017]
Foundations -- Early work -- A new direction -- Staying the course -- Modern humanism -- Tall buildings -- The late works.

Born to Japanese immigrant parents in Seattle, Minoru Yamasaki (1912-1986) became one of the towering figures of midcentury architecture, even appearing on the cover of Time magazine in 1963. His self-proclaimed humanist designs merged the modern materials and functional considerations of postwar American architecture with traditional elements such as arches and colonnades. Yamasaki's celebrated and iconic projects of the 1950s and '60s, including the Lambert-St. Louis Airport and the U.S. Science Pavilion in Seattle, garnered popular acclaim. Despite this initial success, Yamasaki's reputation began to decline in the 1970s with the mixed critical reception of the World Trade Center in New York, one of the most publicized projects in the world at the time, and the spectacular failure of St. Louis's Pruitt-Igoe Apartments, which came to symbolize the flaws of midcentury urban renewal policy. And as architecture moved in a more critical direction influenced by postmodern theory, Yamasaki seemed increasingly old-fashioned. In the first book to examine Yamasaki's life and career, Dale Allen Gyure draws on a wealth of previously unpublished archival material, and nearly 200 images, to contextualize his work against the framework of midcentury modernism and explore his initial successes, his personal struggles--including with racism--and the tension his work ultimately found in the divide between popular and critical taste.

Ray Stanford Strong, West Coast landscape artist
Humpal, Mark, 1952-
Norman : University of Oklahoma Press, [2017]
Throughout his long and prolific career, Ray Stanford Strong (1905?-2006) strove to capture the essence of the western American landscape. An accomplished painter who achieved national fame during the New Deal era, Strong is best known for his depiction of landscapes in California and Oregon, rendered in his signature plein air style. This beautiful volume, featuring more than 100 color and black-and-white illustrations, is the first comprehensive exploration of Strong's life and artistry. Through family papers, archives, photographs, and a two-year series of interviews conducted with the artist personally, Mark Humpal traces Strong's journey from his childhood on an Oregon berry farm to his artistically formative years in New York and San Francisco. After moving back to the West Coast, Strong produced important works for the WPA, executed major diorama projects for two world expositions, helped organize the Santa Barbara Art Institute, and served as teacher and mentor for a new generation of plein air artists.

Coming away : Winslow Homer & England
Athens, Elizabeth, author
Worcester, MA : Worcester Art Museum ; [2017]
A fascinating exploration of the time Winslow Homer spent in England and how it influenced his art. Winslow Homer (1836-1910) is widely regarded as the greatest American painter of the 19th century, but it is not well known that he spent a pivotal period of time on the other side of the Atlantic. The eighteen months Homer spent in England in 1881 and 1882-studying the work of masters such as J. M. W. Turner and Lawrence Alma-Tadema, and exploring the landscape of coastal villages-irrevocably shaped his creative identity. This beautifully designed and produced publication explores Homer's time in England and how it influenced his art, as he attempted to reconcile his affinity for traditional subject matter with his increasingly modern aesthetic vision. Coming Away complicates our understanding of his work and convincingly argues that it has more cosmopolitan underpinnings than previously thought.

Colouring the Caribbean : race and the art of Agostino Brunias
Bagneris, Mia L., author
Manchester : Manchester University Press, 2018
"'Colouring the Caribbean' offers the first comprehensive study of Agostino Brunias's intriguing pictures of colonial West Indians of colour - so called 'Red' and 'Black' Caribs, dark-skinned Africans and Afro-Creoles, and people of mixed race - made for colonial officials and plantocratic elites during the late-eighteenth century. Although Brunias's paintings have often been understood as straightforward documents of visual ethnography that functioned as field guides for reading race, this book investigates how the images both reflected and refracted ideas about race commonly held by eighteenth-century Britons, helping to construct racial categories while simultaneously exposing their constructedness and underscoring their contradictions. The book offers provocative new insights about Brunias's work gleaned from a broad survey of his paintings, many of which are reproduced here for the first time."--Cover page 4.

Sustainable art communities : contemporary creativity and policy in the transnational Caribbean
edited by Leon Wainwright and Kitty Zijlmans
[Manchester] : Manchester University Press, [2018]
This collection sets out a range of perspectives on the challenges that the Caribbean is facing today, showing how the arts hold a crucial role in forging a more sustainable Caribbean community. It forcefully attests to the view that visual art in particular has a specific contribution to make and that this in turn means striving to foster a sustainable arts community that can contend with an environment of uneven infrastructure, opportunity and public awareness. Spanning the scholarly, artistic and professional fields of arts and heritage, this book compares two of the Caribbean's key linguistic regions - the Anglophone and the Dutch - to address the themes of global-local relations, capital, patronage, morality, contestation, sustainability and knowledge exchange. The result is a milestone of collaboration from diverse global settings of the Caribbean and its diaspora, including Jamaica, the Bahamas, Barbados, Suriname, Curacao, the Netherlands, UK, Germany and the US.

Samuel Beckett and contemporary art
Robert Reginio, David Houston Jones, and Katherine Weiss (eds.)
Stuttgart, Germany : ibidem-Verlag/ibidem Press, [2017]
This groundbreaking collection from scholars and artists on the legacy of Beckett in contemporary art provides readers with a unique view of this important writer for page, stage, and screen. The volume argues that Beckett is more than an influence on contemporary art--he is, in fact, a contemporary artist, working alongside artists across disciplines in the 1960s, 1970s, and beyond. The volume explores Beckett's formal experiments in drama, prose, and other media as contemporary, parallel revisions of modernism's theoretical presuppositions congruent with trends like Minimalism and Conceptual Art. 0Containing interviews with and pieces by working artists, alongside contributions of scholars of literature and the visual arts, this collection offers an essential reassessment of Beckett's work. Perceiving Beckett's ongoing importance from the perspective of contemporary art practices, dominated by installation and conceptual strategies, it offers a completely new frame through which to read perennial Beckettian themes of impotence, failure, and penury. From Beckett's remains, as it were, contemporary artists find endless inspiration.

Farewell to the muse : love, war and the women of surrealism
Chadwick, Whitney, author
New York, New York : Thames & Hudson, 2017
Focusing on the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, Whitney Chadwick charts five intense, far-reaching female friendships among the surrealists to show how surrealism and the experiences of war, loss and trauma shaped individual women's transitions from beloved muses to mature artists. Her vivid account includes the fascinating story of Claude Cahun and Suzanne Malherbe's subversive activities in occupied Jersey, as well as the experiences of Lee Miller and Valentine Penrose at the frontline.

Creating distinctions in Dutch genre painting : repetition and invention
Ho, Angela K., author
Amsterdam : Amsterdam University Press, [2017]
In the mid-to late seventeenth century, a number of Dutch painters created a new type of refined genre painting that was much admired by elite collectors. In this book, Angela Ho uses the examples of Gerrit Dou, Gerard ter Borch, and Frans van Mieris to show how this group of artists made creative use of repetition-such as crafting virtuosic, self-referential compositions around signature motifs, or engaging esteemed predecessors in a competitive dialogue through emulation-to project a distinctive artistic personality. The resulting paintings enabled purchasers and viewers to exercise their connoisseurial eye and claim membership in an exclusive circle of sophisticated enthusiasts-making creative repetition a successful strategy for both artists and viewers.

"The original notion of the palimpsest--one that embodies writing, erasure, and rewriting--lends itself especially well to the interpretation of architectural monuments and landscape sites. These are by their very nature often modified significantly over time, leaving them to display a complex layering of forms and a sedimentation of meanings related to the different episodes in their ongoing lives. This volume explores and develops the idea of the architectural and site palimpsest through eleven case studies drawn from different parts of the globe, from Europe and America to Africa and South Asia, and ranging in time from Roman Pompeii and medieval Cairo to modern-day Rwanda and contemporary New York. The purpose behind such chronological and cultural breadth is to provide a multiplicity of examples from which a theoretical model of the three-dimensional palimpsest can be developed, and which would be applicable to monuments and sites from different historical periods and vastly diverse geographical contexts. While there have been many studies of buildings and sites investigating specific, synchronic episodes in their biographies, very few have approached them from the diachronic perspective of the palimpsest, that is, recognizing that the fourth dimension--that of duration--is essential to understanding them as both historic and contemporary entities. As a hermeneutic tool, the concept of the palimpsest embraces the totality of time "compressed" in a given monument or site, while permitting the extraction of a series of legible and meaningful episodes that allow us to read those palimpsests as a narrative of historical processes, whether that narrative is one of deliberate revision, or one of unintended effect. This volume presents a range of methodological possibilities comfortably nestled under a single conceptual umbrella, demonstrating how the notion of the palimpsest can become a paradigm-shifting framework for future, collaborative research in architectural and landscape history." --Publisher's web site, viewed 3/1/2018

Picturing Marie Leszczinska (1703-1768) : representing queenship in eighteenth-century France
Germann, Jennifer Grant, author
London : Routledge, 2016
Framing queenship in France -- Incorporating Marie Leszczinska -- Sons and mothers -- Gendering the French monarchy -- The Queen's new image -- Epilogue: memorializing Marie Leszczinska.

Portraits of Queen Marie Leszczinska (1703-1768) were highly visible in eighteenth-century France. Appearing in royal châteaux and, after 1737, in the Parisian Salons, the queen's image was central to the visual construction of the monarchy. Her earliest portraits negotiated aspects of her ethnic difference, French gender norms, and royal rank to craft an image of an appropriate consort to the king. Later portraits by Maurice-Quentin de La Tour, Carle Van Loo, and Jean-Marc Nattier contributed to changing notions of queenship over the course of her 43 year tenure. Whether as royal wife, devout consort, or devoted mother, Marie Leszczinska's image mattered. While she has often been seen as a weak consort, this study argues that queenly images were powerful and even necessary for Louis XV's projection of authority. This is the first study dedicated to analyzing the queen's portraits. It engages feminist theory while setting the queen's image in the context of portraiture in France, courtly factional conflict, and the history of the French monarchy. While this investigation is historically specific, it raises the larger problem of the power of women's images versus the empowerment of women, a challenge that continues to plague the representation of political women today.

What is painting?
Bell, Julian, 1952- author
[London] : Thames & Hudson, [2017]
Images and marks -- Sight and knowledge -- Form and time -- Expression -- The arts and art -- Representation.

"Yes, but is it art? This lucid book by Julian Bell, himself a painter, confronts the uncertainty many people feel about art today and challenges generally accepted ideas.Now in a completely revised second edition, What is Painting? is a fresh, focused look at painting. Bell addresses questions such as does anything unite those objects we call paintings? and what factors have changed the nature of painting over the last two centuries? by looking at historical evidence and reasoning from common experience. The current shape of painting pushes the book's arguments in new directions and a substantial new chapter, The Arts and Art, speaks to the interplay between 2D work, 3D work, and the immateriality of digital imagery. The text has been revised paragraph by paragraph considering both force of presentation and historical perspective. The intention is to provide a general reader's introduction to theories of painting that is not only reliably informative but stimulating and amusing to read. The book is an introductory guide to art theory for everyone interested in understanding modern art or in making art themselves."--

Natter's Museum Britannicum : British gem collections and collectors of the mid-eighteenth century
Boardman, John, 1927- author
Oxford : Archaeopress Publishing Ltd., [2017]
The German gem-engraver, medallist, and amateur scholar Lorenz Natter (1705- 1763), was so impressed by the size and quality of the collections of ancient and later engraved gems which he found in Britain that he proposed the publication of an extraordinarily ambitious catalogue - Museum Britannicum - which would present engravings and descriptions of the most important pieces. He made considerable progress to this end, producing several hundred drawings, but in time he decided to abandon the near completed project in the light of the apparent lack of interest shown in Britain. Only one of the intended plates in its final form ever appeared, in a catalogue which he published separately for Lord Bessborough's collection. On Natter's death the single copy of his magnum opus vanished mysteriously, presumed lost forever. All hope of recovering Natter's unpublished papers seemed vain, and their very existence had come to be doubted. Yet they were to be found more than two hundred years after his death, in Spring 1975, when the classical scholar and renowned expert in gems, Oleg Neverov, chanced upon them at the bottom of a pile of papers in the archives of the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg. Neverov and his colleague Julia Kagan carried out the initial research on the Hermitage manuscripts and produced the first published account of this archival treasure.

Folly
Barlow, Phyllida, artist
London, UK : Black Dog Publishing, [2017]
Foreword / Graham Sheffield -- Facade / Emma Dexter -- Diary / Phyllida Barlow -- Folly -- List of works -- Biography.

Phyllida Barlow: folly' presents the British Council's new commission created by Phyllida Barlow for the British Pavillion at the 57th Venice Biennale. Best known for her colossal sculptural projects, for over 5 decades Barlow has employed a distinctive vocabulary of inexpensive materials such as plywood, cardboard, plaster, rubber, cement, fabric and paint. Barlow creates striking sculptures and bold and expansive installations that confront the relationship between objects and the space that surrounds them. Drawing on memories of familiar objects from her surroundings, Barlow's practice is grounded in an anti-monumental tradition characterised by her physical experience of handling materials in an expedient and direct way.00Exhibition: British Pavilion, Venice Biennale, Italy (13.05.-26.11.2017).

Gordon Matta-Clark : anarchitect
Matta-Clark, Gordon, 1943-1978, artist
[Bronx] ; The Bronx Museum of the Arts in association with Yale University Press, [2017]
"This revealing book looks at the groundbreaking work of Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978), whose socially conscious practice blurred the boundaries between contemporary art and architecture. After completing a degree in architecture at Cornell University, Matta-Clark returned to his home city of New York, where he initiated a series of site-specific works in derelict areas of the South Bronx. The borough's many abandoned buildings, the result of economic decline and middle-class flight, served as Matta-Clark's raw material. His series 'Bronx Floors' dissected these structures, performing an anatomical study of ther ravaged urban landscape. Moving from New York to Paris with 'Conical Interserct', a piece that became emblematic of artistic protest, Matta-Clark applied this same method to a pair of seventeenth-century row houses slatted for demolition as a result of the Centre Pompidou's construction. This compelling volume grounds Matta-Clark's practice against the framework of architectural and urban history, stressing his pioneering activist-inspired approach, as well as his contribution to the nascent fields of social practice and relational aesthetics."

Artists working from life
contributors Caroline Bugler and nine others
London : Royal Academy of Arts , [2017]
From Michelangelo's marbles to photographic self-portraits, artists have always been fascinated by their creative encounters with the human body. Often a key part of their early training, drawing and sculpting from life goes on to inform their later work in unexpected and inspiring ways. This illuminating publication brings together interviews with over 15 artists from all disciplines, including painters, sculptors and conceptual artists, working in a variety of different media. Through their in-depth conversations with the artists, writers explore the many ways artists work 'from life': from Jeremy Deller's open life class with Iggy Pop as model to Jonathan Yeo's innovative use of 3D scanners and virtual reality. An introductory essay provides the historical context for a practice deeply rooted in artistic tradition. Generously illustrated with reproductions of the artists' work and photography of their working methods, this book upends all our prior assumptions about 'working from life'.00Exhibition: Royal Academy of Arts, London, UK (09.12.2017-11.03.2018).

Ed Pien : luminous shadows
Pien, Ed, artist
London : Black Dog, [2016]
Ed Pien: Luminous Shadows presents the work of Toronto-based artist Ed Pien, known for his drawing-based installations that immerse the viewer in a surreal, unique experience. The book focuses on the eponymous exhibition curated by Catherine Elliot Shaw and presented at McIntosh Gallery in late 2015 that featured his two latest large-scale installations: "Imaginary Dwelling," consisting of a makeshift townscape inside a tent with projected videos, mirrors and shadows; and "Spectral Drawings," depicting ghostly figures rendered in white ink that float on walls with differing black gradations. The drawing-based installations explore ideas of fantasy and vision as shadows are illuminated on dark walls covered with his drawings. These shadows and projections create the illusion of ghostly silhouettes and figures presented within the installation space.

Claudia Comte
Comte, Claudia, 1983-
Luzern : Jrp Ringier Kunstverlag Ag, c2017
Claudia Comte (b. 1983, Switzerland) is best known for her site-specific installations, featuring wooden sculptural forms set against graphic, abstract wall paintings. She creates a unique, rule-based measurement system for each new body of work so that every piece relates to a particular scale. For her first retrospective survey exhibition 10 Rooms, 40 Walls, 1059 m2 at the Kunstmuseum Luzern, this principle has become the agenda: the artist has used 10 rooms, created 40 wall paintings, and filled 1,059 square meters of space by combining the painted museum walls with a new series of paintings in the forms of circles, semicircles, quadrants, and triangles; she has also created sculptures. Despite such regimented structures, Comte?s pieces are imbued with a sense of playfulness, humor and irreverence, puncturing the seriousness connected with minimalism.0Hovering between painting, sculpture, and installation, Comte?s works are based on references to popular culture?including cartoons as well as vernacular handicrafts?nature, heraldic symbols, and art historical movements (Op art, Pop art, Concrete art). Her sculptures can be read as persiflage on classical sculpture, while at the same time negotiating questions of display, the role of the plinth, and simple ground/figure issues.00Exhibition: Kunstmuseum Luzern, Switzerland (04.03. - 18.06.2017).

No man's land : the life and art of Mary Riter Hamilton, 1868-1954
Young, Kathryn A. 1941- author
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada : University of Manitoba Press, [2017]
Early Years -- artistic beginnings, 1868-1901 -- Study in Europe, 1901-1911 -- An artist's career, 1911-1919 -- Painting with purpose, 1919-1925 -- Missed opportunities, shattered dreams, 1925-1954.

"What force of will and circumstance drove a woman with a burgeoning art career following years of study in European art schools from a comfortable life to one of hardship and loneliness in the battle zones of France and Belgium following the Great War? For western Canadian artist Mary Riter Hamilton (1868 1954), art was her life's passion. Her tale is one of tragedy and adventure, from homestead beginnings, to genteel drawing rooms in Winnipeg, Victoria, and Vancouver, to Berlin and Parisian art schools, to Vimy and Ypres, and finally to illness and poverty in old age. No Man's Land is the first biographical study of Hamilton, whose work can be found in galleries and art museums throughout Canada. Young and McKinnon's meticulous research in unpublished private collections brings to light new correspondence between Hamilton and her friends, revealing the importance of female networks to an artist's well-being. Her letters from abroad, in particular, bring a woman's perspective into the immediate post-war period and give voice to trying conditions. Hamilton's career is situated within the context of her peers Florence Carlyle, Emily Carr, and Sophie Pemberton, with whom she shared a Canadian and European experience."--

Kantha : recycled and embroidered textiles of Bengal
Santa Fe, NM : Radius Books ; [2017]
The part of Bengal where the Ganges River flows into the Bay of Bengal has historically been the source of the finest cotton ever produced. The kind of embroidery known as 'kantha' is created from this material, for daily use in many different contexts and in many different sizes. It deploys a simple running stitch in quilting layers of used cloth; details are embroidered using satin and stem stitches with thread taken from the colored borders of cast-off saris and dhotis. The workmanship varies from the crude to the complex and refined, but they are all made for daily use for various household purposes. The tribal culture of this region and its sense of continuity were evident until the early part of the 20th century, but the true unraveling of the 'kantha' tradition came with partition, followed by the devastation brought on by the mass exodus of Hindu and Muslim populations in Pakistan, East Pakistan and India. Now, with global warming, the rising waters are resulting in the disappearance of villages, along with the livelihoods of the inhabitants.

Art and belief
edited by Ema Sullivan-Bissett, Helen Bradley, and Paul Noordhof
Oxford : Oxford University Press, [2017]
Art and Belief Presents twelve new essays, addressing questions at the intersection of philosophy of mind and philosophy of art, while also advancing these debates. It brings together recent work on belief and truth with issues concerning belief that arise in the philosophy of art. Several contributors discuss the cognitive contributions artworks can make and the questions surrounding these. Can authors of fiction testify to their readers? If they can, are they culpable for the false beliefs of their readers formed in response to their work? If they cannot, that is, if the testimonial powers of authors of fiction are limited, is there some non-testimonial epistemic role that fiction can play? And in any case, is such a role relevant when determining the value of the work? Also explored are issues concerned with the phenomenon of fictional persuasion, specifically, what is the nature of the attitude involved in such cases, when we seemingly form beliefs about the real world in response to reading fiction? If these attitudes are typically unstable, unjustified, and unreliable, does this put pressure on the view that they are beliefs? If these attitudes are beliefs, does this put pressure on the view that all beliefs are aimed at truth? Finally, this book explores the nature of aesthetic testimony, and whether testimony of this kind is a legitimate source of beliefs about aesthetic properties and value.

"This volume is the first publication to examine in detail the phenomenon of collective art practice in the continental Western Europe of the late 1950s and of the 1960s. The book elaborates a comparative perspective, engaging with a cultural history of art deeply concerned with political ideas and geopolitical conflicts. Groups of artists and activists including Equipo 57, Equipo Cronica, Equipo Realidad, N, GRAV, Spur, Geflecht and Kommune I, have often been neglected in the English-speaking world. This happened partly because they were active in allegedly minor art centres such as Valencia, Padua, Cordoba, West-Berlin and Munich. However, their works, debates and intellectual networks cast new light on both the art produced during the Cold War and the heightened interest in participatory and collaborative art practices that has characterised the art world of the 2000s and 2010s. Individuals against Individualism tells the stories of these artists and activists, and focuses on their attempts to depict and embody forms of egalitarianism opposing the Eastern bloc authoritarianism as much as the Free world's ethos. By setting their political use of collective authorship, resistance to institutional co-optation and attack on the ideology of freedom, against the backdrop of the Cold War, the book largely speaks to the present."--Cover page 4.

The teabowl : East & West
Kemske, Bonnie, author
London ; Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2017
Introduction : the iconic teabowl -- Tea and the tea ceremony -- Ceramics history -- The teabowl travels -- From tearoom to gallery -- Conclusion : the iconic teabowl-past and present.

"The teabowl has become an iconic ceramic form in recent years. Having travelled from the East, where it was an inherent part of the Japanese tea ceremony, it has evolved and adapted to become something very different in the West. Revered for its oriental associations and its connotations of sophistication and simplicity, the teabowl enjoys an elevated status. Here Bonnie Kemske looks at the form as a whole, considering the history and ideas behind the original tea ceremonies, to how it travelled to the West and the way it is used today. She also explores the wide range of teabowls being made today and the contemporary, international potters making them. The book also tackles some difficult questions, notably, how has the concept of the teabowl changed as it has been reinvented in contemporary ceramics? How does it sit in relation to its history? This book is wide in scope, thorough in detail, and essential reading for anyone involved in making or using these tactile objects. "--

In times of crisis, we often turn to artists for truth-telling and memory-keeping. There is no greater crisis than war, and in this sumptuously illustrated volume, we find a comprehensive visual, cultural, and historical account of the ways in which armed conflict has been represented by artists. Covering the last two centuries, from the Crimean War to the present day, the book shows how the artistic portrayal of war has changed, from a celebration of heroic exploits to a more modern, troubled, and perhaps truthful depiction of warfare and its consequences. The book investigates broad patterns as well as specific genres and themes of war art, and features more than 400 color illustrations by artists including Paul Nash, Judy Chicago, Pablo Picasso, Melanie Friend, Marc Chagall, Francis Bacon, Käthe Kollwitz, Joseph Beuys, Yves Klein, Robert Rauschenberg, Dora Meeson, Otto Dix, and many others. The volume also highlights the work of often overlooked artists, including children, non-Europeans, and prisoners of war. A wide range of subjects, from front-line combat to behind-the-lines wartime experiences are represented in paintings, etchings, photography, film, digital art, comics, and graffiti.

The Agency of Belonging: Identifying and Inhabiting Tradition / Mike Robinson -- Process and Polemic / Dell Upton.

"In seeking to answer the question Whose Tradition? this book pursues four themes: Place: Whose Nation, Whose City?; People: Whose Indigeneity?; Colonialism: Whose Architecture?; and Time: Whose Identity? Following Nezar AlSayyad's Prologue, contributors addressing the first theme take examples from Indonesia, Myanmar and Brazil to explore how traditions rooted in a particular place can be claimed by various groups whose purposes may be at odds with one another. With examples from Hong Kong, a Santal village in eastern India and the city of Kuala Lumpur, contributors investigate the concept of indigeneity, the second theme, and its changing meaning in an increasingly globalized milieu from colonial to post-colonial times. Contributors to the third theme examine the lingering effects of colonial rule in altering present-day narratives of architectural identity, taking examples from Guam, Brazil, and Portugal and its former colony, Mozambique. Addressing the final theme, contributors take examples from Africa and the United States to demonstrate how traditions construct identities, and in turn how identities inform the interpretation and manipulation of tradition within contexts of socio-cultural transformation in which such identities are in flux and even threatened. The book ends with two reflective pieces: the first drawing a comparison between a sense of 'home' and a sense of tradition; the second emphasizing how the very concept of a tradition is an attempt to pin down something that is inherently in flux."--Publisher's description.

Gender, continuity, and the shaping of modernity in the arts of East Asia, 16th-20th centuries
edited by Kristen L. Chiem, Lara C.W. Blanchard
Leiden ; Brill, [2018]
Representations of femininity -- Women as makers -- Constructions of gender and interactions with the West.

This book explores women?s and men?s contributions to the arts and gendered visual representations in China, Korea, and Japan from the premodern through modern eras. A critical introduction and nine essays consider how threads of continuity and exchanges between the cultures of East Asia, Europe, and the United States helped to shape modernity in this region, in the process revealing East Asia as a vital component of the trans-Pacific world. The essays consider examples of architecture, painting, woodblock prints and illustrated books, photography, and textiles.

Ritratto di una virtuosa canterina : Eleonora Baroni e il pittore Fabio della Corgna al tempo dei Barberini
Galassi, Cristina, author
Passignano s.T. [that is, Sul Trasimeno], Perugia : Aguaplano, [2017]
Nel 1639 veniva edita a Bracciano una brillante raccolta di componimenti poetici dedicati a una celebre virtuosa del tempo, Eleonora Baroni, intitolata Applausi poetici alle glorie della signora Leonora Baroni. Tra i sonetti, composti per l'occasione dai più noti poeti e letterati della Roma barocca, in italiano, latino, spagnolo e francese, e disposti in ordine alfabetico per autore, spicca quello a firma di monsignor Giulio Rospigliosi, l'alto prelato animatore del Teatro Barberini che, nel 1667, sarebbe asceso al Soglio pontificio col nome di Clemente IX e che in questa raccolta, con lucida e brillante verve descrittiva, celebrò il ritratto della cantante e musicista realizzato dall'artista perugino Fabio della Corgna.0Nel volume Cristina Galassi ricostruisce le biografie del pittore e della musicista ritratta, indaga la complessa vicenda del dipinto e discute brillantemente il tema della pittura encomiastica nella Roma al tempo dei Barberini.

a cura di Matteo Fochessati e Gianni Franzone ; saggi di Matteo Fochessati e Gianni Franzone and 10 others
Genova : Sagep editori, [2017]
Il catalogo della mostra rappresenta, a oltre quarant'anni dalle prime indagini critiche di Gianfranco Bruno sull'artista ligure, il tentativo di contestualizzare la sua intensa produzione pittorica e plastica all'interno del variegato contesto artistico del suo tempo. La sua ricerca, strettamente legata alla singolare esperienza umana vissuta nel prolungato e volontario romitaggio nel borgo di San Fruttuoso, è posta infatti criticamente a confronto con le opere dei principali artisti italiani, attivi tra divisionismo e simbolismo a cavallo tra Otto e Novecento: non solo quelli che influenzarono il suo peculiare stile pittorico e la sua significativa, ma meno nota, attività scultorea, come Segantini, Previati, Pellizza e Nomellini, che risiedette a Genova dal 1890 al 1902, ma anche quelli che con lui condivisero la temperie estetica dell'epoca o quelli sui quali Merello esercitò, negli anni a venire, una più diretta influenza formale e iconografica.

Authentic reconstruction : authenticity, architecture and the built heritage
edited by John Bold, Peter Larkham and Robert Pickard
London ; Bloomsbury Academic, An imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2018
Reconstruction in traditional style after conflict -- Reconstruction in contemporary style after conflict -- Reconstruction after natural or accidental disaster -- Political dimensions and image building.

Notions of authenticity lie at the heart of many questions about heritage and identity in the built environment. These questions are most pertinent when buildings have been destroyed in disaster or war, and the built fabric is being reconstructed to reinstate traditional or historic appearances in place of what was lost. Authentic Reconstruction examines this idea of reconstruction, using it as a prompt to examine a range of deeper issues on heritage and the built environment. From post-WWII reconstruction programmes through to the rebuilding of historic cultural landscapes lost in natural disasters, this collection of essays by heritage specialists provides a wide range of case-studies and discussions. Each presents responses to crises and lessons learned, in order to extrapolate general guidelines for future actions by politicians, architects and planners in reconstructing buildings. The book also looks beyond disaster and war, noting how authenticity bears on political intentions and image building, exploring how reconstruction is used to tell a political or historical story, so conditioning the ways in which the built environment is perceived and appreciated by its users. This is not just about the buildings as bricks and mortar, but about perceptions of identity and the social and historical values which buildings and spaces embody for a richly diverse population. re.

The new carbon architecture : building to cool the climate
King, Bruce (Structural engineer), author
Gabriola Island, BC, Canada : New Society Publishers, 2017
Like never before in history, buildings can become part of the climate solution. With biomimicry and innovation, we can pull huge amounts of carbon out of the atmosphere and lock it up as walls, roofs, foundations, and insulation. We can literally make buildings out of sky with a massive positive impact. This book presents a paradigm-shifting tour of the innovations in architecture and construction that are making this happen. Office towers built from advanced wood products; affordable low-carbon concrete alternatives; plastic cleaned from the oceans and turned into building blocks. We can even grow insulation and bricks! This book will fire the imagination of architects, engineers, builders, policy makers, and everyone else captivated by the possibility of architecture that heals the climate and produces safer, healthier, and more beautiful buildings.

Théâtre du pouvoir
sous la direction de Jean-Luc Martinez ; assisté de Florence Dinet ; avec la participation de Patrick Boucheron and four others
Paris : Éditions du Seuil, [2017]
"Gouverner, c'est faire croire", disait Machiavel. Art et pouvoir sont intimement liés, et leur complicité marque de son empreinte toutes les époques. Gouverner, c'est se mettre en scène pour asseoir son autorité, sa légitimité et son prestige. C'est aussi fabriquer des images pour nourrir sa propre légende. L'art, au service des commanditaires mécènes, se fait alors instrument de propagande. Mais il peut également se faire contestataire et bousculer l'ordre établi. Fidèle à sa vocation, la troisième saison de la Petite Galerie, espace dédié à l'éducation artistique et culturelle, invite le "visiteur-spectateur" à découvrir le répertoire très codifié du Théâtre du pouvoir de l'Antiquité à nos jours. Les oeuvres des collections du musée du Louvre et du Musée national des châteaux de Versailles et de Trianon, du Musée national du château de Pau et du Petit Palais, musée des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris, illustrent ici l'évolution des codes de représentation du pouvoir politique."--Page 4 of cover.

"This comprehensive volume documents the work of the exceptional architect and designer Emilio Ambasz, whose main concern is to integrate nature and construction into architectural design. Ambasz is regarded as one of the most important pioneers of Green Architecture. In his work a combination of landscape and architecture emerges, in which his respect for the environment and ecological sustainability becomes clear. Ambasz, a native of Argentina as well as a Spanish citizen by special grant of 2004, is also well known for his industrial and graphic design accomplishments, which are of immense scope and astounding variety. They range from diesel engines and streetlights, flashlights, and spotlights to portable TV players, flexible pens, fold-out watches, and innovative office chairs. In his time as curator of design at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (1969-1976) he directed and installed numerous influental exhibitions on architecture and industrial design, amongst them Italy : The New Domestic Landscape and The Taxi Project"--Publisher's website.

This beautiful publication accompanies an exhibition that brings together the only two known self-portraits by Bartolome Esteban Murillo (1617-1682), one of the finest painters of the Spanish Golden Age. Painted almost twenty years apart, these two remarkable paintings are often overshadowed by Murillo's more famous religious paintings and genre scenes. This book investigates the two self-portraits side by side, highlighting similarities and differences. While the earlier portrait reflects Murillo's admiration of antiquity and imitation of classical models, the later one shows a confident, mature artist who was at that time the leading painter in Seville. In addition, the book discusses recent technical analysis, offering a better understanding of how these self-portraits were painted, and provides a rare opportunity to compare how one of the most celebrated and influential European painters chose to represent himself at different stages of his exceptional career.

Women architects in the modern movement
Espegel Alonso, Carmen, author
New York, NY : Routledge, 2018
Women Architects in the Modern Movement rewrites the history of modern architecture to elevate the often-overlooked female architects who helped build the movement. Starting with a theoretical analysis that situates women's roles both in society and architecture specifically, Carmen Espegel examines the transition from women as objects to subjects at the advent of modernity. This theoretical basis is grounded through four case studies on pioneering women architects: Eileen Gray, Lilly Reich, Margarete Schutte-Lihotzky and Charlotte Perriand. Along with illuminating their lives and work, Espegel aims to help us examine and observe the world from a perspective where the feminine and masculine are not exclusive, so that we might learn from the past in order to build with dignity in the future. Translated from the original Spanish by Angela Giral.

Perugino : l'Adorazione dei pastori
a cura di Marco Pierini e Nadia Righi
Cinisello Balsamo (Milano) : Silvana editoriale, [2017]
L'Adorazione dei pastori, uno dei capolavori della maturità di Perugino, costituiva la tavola centrale del lato posteriore del Polittico di Sant'Agostino, una delle macchine pittoriche più imponenti del primo Cinquecento italiano. Paesaggio, architetture e figure si fondono in una scena di straordinario equilibrio compositivo, frutto di un'attenta riflessione. La sacra famiglia e i pastori accorsi ad adorare il Bambino si appropriano dello spazio e, a dispetto "dell'assai poca religione" che Perugino avrebbe professato secondo il giudizio di Vasari, nel più profondo silenzio suscitano un senso di intensa sacralità e di commossa devozione davanti al mistero dell'incarnazione.

Public art is produced and 'lived' within multiple, interlaced and contested political, economic, social and cultural-symbolic spheres. This lively collection is a mix of academic and practice-based writings that scrutinise conventional claims on the inclusiveness of public art practice. Contributions examine how various social differences, across class, ethnicity, age, gender, religion, ability and literacy, shape encounters with public art within the ambits of the design, regeneration and everyday experiences of public spaces. The chapters richly draw on case studies from the Global North and South, providing comprehensive insights into the experiences of encountering public art via a variety of scales and realms. This book advances critical insights of how socially practised public arts articulate and cultivate geographies of social difference through the themes of power (the politics of encountering), affect (the embodied ways of encountering), and diversity (the inclusiveness of encountering). It will appeal to scholars, students and practitioners of cultural geography, the visual arts, urban studies, political studies and anthropology.

Art nouveau and the classical tradition
Warren, Richard (Classicist), author
London ; Bloomsbury Academic, An imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2018
Re-birth -- Muse -- Hero -- Bloom -- Desire -- Nation -- Death.

"Art Nouveau was a style for a new age, but it was also one that continued to look back to the past. This new study shows how in expressing many of their most essential concerns - sexuality, death and the nature of art - its artists drew heavily upon classical literature and the iconography of classical art. It challenges the conventional view that Art Nouveau's adherents turned their backs on Classicism in their quest for new forms. Across Europe and North America, artists continued to turn back to the ancient world, and in particular to Greece, for the vitality with which they sought to infuse their creations. The works of many well-known artists are considered through this prism, including those of Gustav Klimt, Aubrey Beardsley and Louis Comfort Tiffany. But, breaking new ground in its comparative approach, this study also considers some of the movement's less well-known painters, sculptors, jewellers and architects, including in central and eastern Europe, and their use of classical iconography to express new ideas of nationhood. Across the world, while Art Nouveau was a plural style drawing on multiple influences, the Classics remained a key artistic vocabulary for its artists, whether blended with Orientalist and other iconographies, or preserving the purity of classical form." -- Publisher's description

Heinz Mack : ZERO Malerei = ZERO painting : catalogue raisonné 1956-1968
Mack, Heinz, 1931- artist
München : Hirmer ; [2017]
"In 1956, unlike art informel, Mack developed his first Dynamic Structures - paintings in which in a singular manner a painting of light is contrasted with traditional colourism and structure replaces composition. He created new surfaces which appear to vibrate and which give the impression of three-dimensional reliefs by means of a use of colour which was increasingly reduced to black and white and grid-like structures. Despite the radical restriction of means no two paintings are alike. In its focus on the early works of the ZERO period, this volume provides an indispensable key to an understanding of Mack's work as a whole"--Publisher's website.

Marcel Duchamp's Fountain : one hundred years later
Kilroy, Robert, author
Cham, Switzerland: Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
This book marks the centenary of Marcel Duchamp's Fountain by critically re-examining the established interpretation of the work. It introduces a new methodological approach to art-historical practice rooted in a revised understanding of Lacan, Freud and Slavoj Zizek. In weaving an alternative narrative, Kilroy shows us that not only has Fountain been fundamentally misunderstood but that this very misunderstanding is central to the work's significance. The author brings together Duchamp's own statements to argue Fountain's verdict was strategically stage-managed by the artist in order to expose the underlying logic of its reception, what he terms "The Creative Act." This book will be of interest to a broad range of readers, including art historians, psychoanalysts, scholars and art enthusiasts interested in visual culture and ideological critique.

Between 1769 and 1819 London experienced an unprecedented growth in the proliferation of texts and images in the popular sphere, engaging learned citizens in discussion and commentary on the most pressing social and political issues of the day. From the repeal of the Stamp Act to the French revolution, the local Westminster election or the abolition of the slave trade, these prints, political pamphlets, plays, novels and periodicals collaborated (sometimes intentionally) in critique, praise and assessment of the country's changing socio-economic climate. African people were a critical aspect of this world of images, and their presence conveyed much about the implications of travel, colonialism and slavery on the collective psyche. Whether encountered on the streets of the city, in opulent stately homes, or in tracts describing the horrors of the slave trade, the British paid attention to Africans (consciously or not), and developed a means of expressing the impact of these encounters through images. Scholarship has begun to interrogate the presence of Africans in British art of this period, but very little has been written about their place in visual and literary humour created in a metropolitan context. This book fills this scholarly lacuna, exploring how and why satirical artists both mocked and utilized these characters as subversive comic weaponry.

Antony Gormley
Caiger-Smith, Martin, author
New York : Rizzoli, [2017]
For more than thirty-five years, since his first solo exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery, Antony Gormley has sought to explore the relationship of the human body to space and to reinvigorate and test the potential of sculpture. This beautiful and definitive monograph examines the entirety of Gormley's career, from his earliest sketches to his best-known public installations. With unprecedented access not only to the archives but to the working studio and to the artist himself, Martin Caiger-Smith examines the relationship between Gormley's life and art, and identifies the singular and obsessional vision that ties together a vast canon of work in an extraordinary range of media and materials. Best known for the major public works that most visibly represent his rigorous and innovative approach to sculpture, Gormley is a prolific and intellectual artist who has renegotiated the tension between the individual and the universal. Drawing on images that range from childhood snapshots to photographs of his most recent gallery installations, this book traces the evolution of Gormley's work, from the drawings he makes every day in the studio, through the constantly evolving process of casting his own body in various forms, to the ultimate expression of his ideas in such masterpieces as the colossal Angel of the North or the scattered figures of Another Place.

Radical women : Latin American art, 1960-1985
Cecilia Fajardo-Hill and Andrea Giunta ; with contributions by Rodrigo Alonso and 13 others
Los Angeles : Hammer Museum, University of California ; 2017
"This stunning reappraisal offers long overdue recognition to the enormous contribution to the field of contemporary art of women artists in Latin America and those of Latino and Chicano heritage working during a pivotal time in history. Amidst the tumult and revolution that characterized the latter half of the 20th century in Latin America and the US, women artists were staking their claim in nearly every field. This wide ranging volume examines the work of more than 100 female artists with nearly 300 works in the fields of painting, sculpture, photography, video, performance art, and other experimental media. A series of thematic essays, arranged by country, address the cultural and political contexts in which these radical artists worked, while other essays address key issues such as feminism, art history, and the political body. Drawing its design and feel from the radical underground pamphlets, catalogs, and posters of the era, this is the first examination of a highly influential period in 20th-century art history. "--

Montreal's geodesic dreams : Jeffrey Lindsay and the Fuller Research Foundation Canadian Division = Montréal et le rêve géodésique : Jeffrey Lindsay et la Fuller Research Foundation Canadian Division
edited by Cammie McAtee ; with contributions by Carlo Carbone and Réjean Legault = sous la direction de Cammie McAtee ; avec des contributions de Carlo Carbone et Réjean Legault
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada : Dalhousie Architectural Press, 2017
R. Buckminster Fuller's American Pavilion at Expo 67 has long been recognized as an icon of Montreal's urban landscape. Yet this high point was only a part of the story of Canada's contributions to developing the geodesic dome. Based on previously unpublished archival material, 'Montreal's geodesic dreams' sheds light on the pioneering explorations of designer Jeffrey Lindsay (1924-84) and the Fuller Research Foundation Canadian Division (1949-56). This ebullient period of collaborative creativity and technological optimism placed Montreal at the forefront of dome experimentation in the 1950s - a moment when geodesic domes seized the architectural and popular imagination and sprouted up across the country in virtually every conceivable program and context. Illustrated with photographs, drawings, documents, drawing instruments and design tools from the Jeffrey Lindsay Foundation of the University of Calgary's Canadian Architectural Archives and various other archives and collections.

Lassnig, Maria, artist
Köln : Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther Konig, [2017]
The show is the last exhibition project that Maria Lassnig was able to plan personally with the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist. Around fifty works are on show, paintings and works on paper, especially watercolours. which seize upon motifs from Greek mythology and their expansive and permanent exchange with all Mediterranean civilisations. Although these works by Maria Lassnig are not so well known, they manifest characteristics typical of her work: the awareness of the body, the painterly rendering of the inner and outer world, as well as animal portrayals and landscapes. In an unusual selection from Maria Lassnig's oeuvre the exhibition and the accompanying catalogue with contributions from leading scholars and artists spotlight her unique visual idiom, in which she combines science with a subjective emotional life, and Mediterranean landscapes with figures from ancient mythology. Exhibition: Municipal Gallery of Athens, Greece (07.04.-16.07.2017).

edited by Daniel Savoy
Leiden ; Brill, [2017]
Global genealogies -- Beyond Eurocentrism -- A borderless Renaissance -- Instituting the global.

In 'The Globalization of Renaissance Art: A Critical Review', Daniel Savoy assembles an interdisciplinary group of scholars to evaluate the global discourse on early modern European art. Over the course of eleven chapters and a roundtable, the contributors assess the discourse's goal of transcending Eurocentric boundaries, reflecting on the strengths and weaknesses of current terms, methods, theories, and concepts. Although it is clear that the global perspective has exposed the artistic and cultural pluralism of early modern Europe, it is found that more work needs to be done at the epistemological level of Art History as a whole.

Phenomenal difference : a philosophy of black British art
Wainwright, Leon, author
Liverpool : Liverpool University Press, 2017
Phenomenal Difference' grants new attention to contemporary black British art, exploring its critical and social significance through attention to embodied experience, affectivity, the senses and perception. Much before scholars in the arts and humanities took their recent 'ontological turn' toward the new materialism, black British art had begun to expose cultural criticism's overreliance on the concepts of textuality, representation, identity and difference. Illuminating that original field of aesthetics and creativity, this book shows how black British artworks themselves can become the basis for an engaged and widely-reaching philosophy.

Contemporary British artists of African descent and the unburdening of a generation
Kerman, Monique, author
[Cham, Switzerland] : Palgrave Macmillan, [2017]
Introduction -- Magdalene Odundo -- Veronica Ryan -- Mary Evans -- Maria Amidu -- Reckoning with identity, race, and gender -- Achieving parity.

This book explores the notable roles that contemporary British artists of African descent have played in the multicultural context of postwar Britain. In four key case studies -Magdalene Odundo, Veronica Ryan, Mary Evans, and Maria Amidu-Monique Kerman charts their impact through analysis of works, activities, and exhibitions. The author elucidates each of the artists' creative response to their unique experience and examines how their work engages with issues of history, identity, diaspora, and the distillation of diverse cultural sources. The study also includes a comparative discussion of art broadly defined as "black British," in order to question assumptions concerning racial and ethnic identities that the artists often negotiate through their works-particularly the expectation or "burden" of representing minority or marginalized communities. Readers are thus challenged to unburden the artists herein and celebrate their work on its own terms.

Precarious imaginaries of Beirut : a city's suspended now
Naeff, Judith, author
[Cham, Switzerland] : Palgrave Macmillan , [2018]
This book investigates a shared experience of time and space in the post-civil-war city of Beirut:?the suspended now.? Based on the close analysis of a large corpus of cultural objects; including visual art, literature, architecture and cinema; the book argues that last decades have witnessed a gradual shift in understanding this temporality from being a transitional phase to a more durable experience of precariousness. The theoretically rich analyses take us on a journey through Beirut?s real and imagined geographies, from garbage dumps to real estate advertisements, and from subterranean spaces to martyr?s posters. For scholars of cultural analysis, urban studies, cultural geography and critical theory, the case of post-1990 Beirut offers a fascinating case of neoliberal urban renewal, which challenges existing theories. For scholars of Lebanon and Beirut, this study complements existing work on post-civil-war Lebanese cultural production rooted in trauma studies by its focus on the city?s continual exposure to violence.

Gerhard Richter : Unikate in Serie = Unique pieces in series

The phrase "unique pieces in series" seems to be contradictory at first sight. For how can something that only exists once be present several times? But some of Gerhard Richter's editions embody this particular principle of uniqueness in series. In paintings, photographic works, prints, and drawings, Richter has developed the possibility to vary individual copies in their appearance. The entire set of an edition thus consists of unicultural variants whose difference is intended. Probably no other artist has made this design concept into a fundamental method of their art in such a fascinatingly diverse way.

1. The breath of a poem -- 2. Self-consciousness raising -- 3. Just talk -- 4. Broadcast yourself.

"The Art of Confession tells the history of this cultural shift and of the movement it created in American art: confessionalism. Like realism or romanticism, confessionalism began in one art form, but soon pervaded them all: poetry and comedy in the 1950s and '60s, performance art in the '70s, theater in the '80s, television in the '90s, and online video and social media in the 2000s. Everywhere confessionalism went, it stood against autobiography, the art of the closed book. Instead of just publishing, these artists performed--with, around, and against the text of their lives."--

"This survey presents the work on paper of Charles Arnoldi (born 1946), a nationally renowned artist based in Los Angeles. Arnoldi has been described as an artist who 'draws in space' to create his unique assemblage works of art. Throughout his long career he has been fascinated with shape and pattern as they apply to advanced formal concerns, from his 1970s paintings made entirely of natural forms, to his current geometric work. Internationally renowned architect Frank Gehry has said that 'the maturing Arnoldi has a secure color sense and the ability to work at large scale as well as to produce tiny, exquisite watercolors.' Gehry cites Arnoldi as an influence in his own work, stating that 'this is an artist whose best is yet to come, who is still experimental and still willing to risk.'"--Amazon.

Borderless : the art of Luis Tapia
Tapia, Luis 1950-
Long Beach, California : Museum of Latin American Art, 2017
Born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1950, sculptor Luis Tapia is a pioneering Chicano artist who for forty-five years has pushed the art of polychrome wood sculpture to new levels of craftsmanship and social and political commentary. Tapia's works speak to the complexity of Latino/Hispano/Chicano identity, history, and contemporary culture, offering compelling insights and challenging perspectives on life in the barrio, on the border, and beyond. Rooted in a folk art tradition established in seventeenth-century New Mexico, Tapia's work at once honors its origins, reinterprets traditional subject matter, and revitalizes age-old techniques. As an artist and activist whose works have been internationally exhibited and collected, Tapia informs and educates non-Hispanic viewers about the Chicano and Nuevomexicano experience. At the same time, he transcends cultural and ethnic borders through the elegance of his craft and commentary. In this first publication devoted to Tapia's artistic legacy, leading art historians, curators, and literary figures consider Tapia's art both inside and outside the local and regional contexts in which it is made. With more than 100 photographic reproductions, Borderless illuminates Tapia's relevance and vitality within the broader national and international artistic conversation.

Discovered in a variety of materials, from stone, ivory, and metals to beadwork, wood, and even paintings, images of maternity enliven virtually every type of object made in the region. Defining maternity as a biological and cultural phenomenon, the author goes beyond obvious notions of fertility to consider the importance of maternity in thought, ritual action, and worldview. Maternity images of all eras evoke deep and significant messages - well beyond what meets the eye"--Publisher's website.

Lois Dodd
Hirsch, Faye, author
London : Lund Humphries, 2017
Beginnings -- Dodd's nature -- Dodd's windows -- Dodd's vision.

This book is the first monograph on the paintings of Lois Dodd. It provides invaluable analysis and contextualisation of her work alongside such New York City contemporaries as Alex Katz, Philip Pearlstein and other denizens of the Tenth Street milieu of the 1950s. Emerging from the shadow of Abstract Expressionism, Dodd and this circle cleaved to an observational painting based in the early modernist tradition. Beginning in the 1950s, Lois Dodd has steadfastly pursued her observational painting, remaining aloof from passing trends. She is widely admired as a 'painter's painter' whose landscapes and city scenes display subtle effects of place, light and weather within graphically distilled compositions. Dodd's works capture the intangible character of changing seasons or particular hours of day in locations throughout New York City, rural New Jersey and Maine, but the paintings betray no mark of era. They are curiously timeless.--

Craft becomes modern : the Bauhaus in the making
edited for the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation by Regina Bittner and Renée Padt ; translation, Amy Klement
Bielefeld : Kerber, c2017
Craft (in) the Modern Era: Paradox or Utopia? -- Craft as an Agent of Things -- Craft: A Hybrid Practice.

"Craft Becomes Modern: The Bauhaus in the Making looks at the Bauhaus from the perspective of this noisy activity--handcraft. No term was more fiercely disputed there. Although conceived as "laboratories for industry," a great deal was still done by hand in the Dessau workshops. Workshops at the Bauhaus straddled the different priorities and practical realities at play, falling somewhere between factory and craft business, between free experimentation and industrial contract work. From this field of tension, the Bauhaus tried to define handcraft anew as a utopian pursuit that could coexist with industrial culture. The Bauhaus' interest in industrialization has been thoroughly studied; the persistence of craft among its teachers and students much less so. Craft Becomes Modern surveys this aspect of the Bauhaus' teaching and work, and puts it in historical context. And these debates are far from over--this volume includes contributions from a range of contemporary design theorists and practitioners, including Julia Bryan-Wilson, Martino Gamper, John Maciuika, Rafael Cardoso, Joseph Grima, Gerda Breuer, T'ai Smith, Eva Forgacs and Sara Ouhadou, offering new insights for understanding handcraft in the 21st century"--Publisher's description.

Art royal : Meisterzeichnungen aus dem Louvre
Lektorat, Regina Kaltenbrunner ; Redaktion, Regina Kaltenbrunner, Peter Laub, Eva Léchelle
Salzburg : Salzburg Museum, [2017]
König Ludwig XIV. erwarb in mehreren Etappen die Kunstsammlung des in Paris lebenden Kölner Kaufmanns und Bankiers Everhard Jabach (1618-1695). Dieser war von Jugend an mit qualitätsvollster Kunst umgeben. Er ging in seiner Sammelleidenschaft neue Wege: Es war ein Novum, Zeichnungen zu erwerben, und er schätzte die Künstler seiner deutschen Heimat. Dies alles führte zu einer der bedeutendsten Grafiksammlungen des 17. Jahrhunderts. Jabachs Sammlung von 5.542 Zeichnungen wurde zum Grundstock des Département des Arts graphiques du Louvre. Davon sind ca. 80 in Salzburg zu sehen.0Die ausgewählten 80 Zeichnungen sind aus dem 16. und 17. Jahrhundert und zeigen Arbeiten aus den drei Hauptgruppen der Sammlung, aus der italienischen, nordischen und französischen Schule. Die Namen lesen sich wie ein Who is Who der Kunstgeschichte- Dürer, Holbein, Rubens, Dubreuil, Vouet, Poussin, Buonarotti, Carracci, Raffael. Ergänzt wird die Auswahl durch Arbeiten der so genannten Premiers Peintres du Roi der herausragendsten Maler zur Zeit des Sonnenkönigs, Charles Le Brun und Pierre Mignard. Denn ihre Nachlässe kamen ebenfalls in die königliche Sammlung. Damit kann der Kunstgeschmack des Grand Siècle Frankreichs besonders gut dokumentiert werden. Insgesamt werden Arbeiten von 69 Künstlern ausgestellt. Exhibition: Salzburg Museum, Austria (09.06.-03.09.2047).

Marjan Teeuwen : destroyed house
Teeuwen, Marjan, 1953-
Amsterdam : Valiz, ©2017
Marjan Teeuwen creates large-scale architectural installations in buildings that are subsequently demolished following her interventions. She disrupts the materials of construction and structure and builds new artistic images in which floors are tilted, walls are removed, and stacks of debris either run rampant or are painstakingly ordered into architectural sculptures. Constructive forces go hand in hand with destruction and decay in Teeuwen's work. This book presents several installations from her 'Destroyed House' series, including the recent project 'Destroyed House Gaza'. By choosing to work in occupied territory, Teeuwen allows the socio-political context to penetrate her method.

"Humanist collaborators also contributed to the development of visual projects in many ways. That they served as advisors and propagandists is well known, but we have scant knowledge of exactly how they worked with artists, and especially with architects. How did their ideas make their way into form? The role of the humanist advisor has been studied primarily in respect to the representational media of painting and sculpture, focusing on so-called iconographic programs or inventions; but their role in architectural projects is much less understood"--

Fahrelnissa Zeid : painter of inner worlds
Laïdi, Adila R., author
London : Art/Books Publishing, 2017
Coinciding with a touring Tate exhibition of her work, this book is the first biography of influential abstract painter Princess Fahrelnissa Zeid (1901-91), a pioneer of Turkish art whose rich life spanned the first 90 years of the 20th century. Zeid is best known for her large-scale paintings that combine Islamic, Byzantine, Arab and Persian influences with stylistic elements developed in Europe during the postwar period. Born into a prominent family in Istanbul, she emerged as a leading figure of Turkish modernism and went on to become a prominent member of the 1950s École de Paris abstract art movement, praised by André Breton. In the same decade, she was also one of the first women to exhibit at London's ICA. This book covers her peripatetic life, the evolution of her practice and her reinvention in her eighties as a teacher, redefining her for the contemporary reader as one of the most important female modernists.

Greek art : from Oxford to Portugal and back again
Morais, Rui, author
Oxford : Archaeopress Publishing Ltd, [2017]
"One of the most fascinating topics in the study of ancient art concerns artistic practices and models and the means of transmission of iconographic designs and decorative compositions. This phenomenon, although well known, has not drawn much attention of scholars of the ancient art. Apart from copies of originals, the practice dates back to the first civilizations and may be even older. The media used could be painted vignettes on papyri, paint on leather, or sketches painted on ostraca, used as pattern books. This issue is practically unheard of regarding ancient Greece, although a few media have been found which may have facilitated the transmission of iconographic designs and decorative compositions. In this study we present some examples that suggest the existence of pattern books in the Greek world. If the media used in the Greek world are insofar unknown, the same cannot be said of the Roman world. Written sources mention the existence of manuals in the form of papyrus scrolls (stemmata, imagines) which served as models as well as inspiration for the artists."--Back cover.

Davies, Colin, 1929- author
London : Laurence King Publishing Ltd, 2017
In this book, Colin Davies subjects the canonical architecture of the twentieth century to a thorough reassessment. Rather than repeating the standard wisdom, Davies questions the values and judgements that are so often the mainstay of architectural surveys, and in doing so asks: what is the importance of the style we know as Modernism.

Mona Hatoum : terra infirma
Michelle White ; with contributions by Anna C. Chave, Adania Shibli, Rebecca Solnit
Houston, Texas : Menil Collection, [2017]
The work of London-based artist Mona Hatoum (b. 1952) addresses the growing unease of an ever-expanding world that is as technologically networked as it is fractured by war and exile. Best known for sculptures that transform domestic objects such as kitchen utensils or cribs into things strange and threatening, Hatoum conducts multilayered investigations of the body, politics, and gender that express a powerful and pervasive sense of precariousness. Her works are never simple and often elicit conflicting emotions, such as fascination and fear, desire and revulsion. This copiously illustrated presentation of Hatoum's oeuvre offers critical and art historical essays by Michelle White and Anna C. Chave and imaginative texts by Rebecca Solnit and Adania Shibli, which contextualize the artist's work and its relationship to surrealism, minimalism, feminism, and politics.

Featuring essays by leading curators, scholars, and critics, this book provides an in-depth look at how the internet has impacted visual art over the past three decades. From the fall of the Berlin Wall to Black Lives Matter, the internet's promise to foster communication across borders and democratize information has evolved alongside its rapidly developing technologies. While it has introduced radical changes to how art is made, disseminated, and perceived, the internet has also inspired artists to create inventive and powerful work that addresses new conceptions of community and identity, modes of surveillance, and tactics for resistance. Art in the Age of the Internet, 1989 to Today traces the relationship between internet culture and artistic practice through the work of contemporary artists such as Ed Atkins, Camille Henrot, and Anicka Yi, and looks back to pre-internet pioneers including Nam June Paik and Lynn Hershman Leeson. Conversations between artists reveal how they have tackled similar issues using different technological tools. Touching on a variety of topics that range from emergent ideas of the body and human enhancement to the effects of digital modes of production on traditional media, and featuring more than 200 images of works including painting, performance, photography, sculpture, video, and web-based projects, this volume is packed with insightful revelations about how the internet has affected the trajectory of contemporary art.

Spanning the entire circumference of the inner-circle galleries on the Museum's third floor, the artist creates an immersive installation that fills the massive space. ... Working with a combination of colored paper and reproductions of the original cyclorama, Bradford collaged and transformed the historic Gettysburg imagery into a series of eight powerful works."--Page vi.

As you walk around 'Louisiana' today, the location of buildings and landscape seems to be firm and unchanging, as if it had always been such. But under the apparently self-evident environment lies an epic story of creation and innovation that goes back to the Napoleonic Wars. The museum now publishes a comprehensive and groundbreaking book, 'Louisiana: Architecture and Landscape', where the American architect, author and expert on modern Nordic architecture Michael Sheridan tells the story of the museum's long creation. It is the story of a museum that has grown organically in keeping with the evolution of contemporary art and the vision of the museum?s founder, Knud W. Jensen. Today, everyone wants to be like the museum in Humlebæk but how did Louisiana become Louisiana?

"There has been a groundswell of interest in modernist architecture in recent years, particularly buildings from the second half of the twentieth century. Individuals and groups are engaging with modernist environments in the form of popular histories, documentaries and community projects, and digital and social media. Alongside this growing popularity however, many of these buildings are under threat from demolition and regeneration. "Modern Futures" explores these trends, their connections, and how more popular and creative engagements might be used to inform the uncertain future of modernist architecture."

Carrington's letters
Carrington, Dora de Houghton, 1893-1932, author
London : Chatto & Windus, 2017
Dora Carrington was considered an outsider to Bloomsbury, but she lived right at its heart. For over a decade she was the companion of gay writer Lytton Strachey, and killed herself, stricken without him, when he died in 1932. She was also a prolific and exuberant correspondent. Carrington was not consciously a pioneer or a feminist, but in her determination to live life according to her own nature, she fought battles that remain familiar and urgent today. She was friends with the greatest minds of the day and her correspondence stars a roster of fascinating characters - Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell, Rosamund Lehmann, Maynard Keynes to name but a few. 'Carrington's Letters' introduces the maverick artist and electric personality to a new generation with exclusive correspondence never before published.

"When Annie Pootoogook won the Sobey Art Award in 2006, she cracked the glass ceiling for Inuit art, securing its place in contemporary Canadian art discourse and establishing herself as an artist of international importance. Her achievement sparked critical discussion around contemporary art as well as the absence, and growing presence, of Inuit art: an important conversation that continues to this day. The life and death of Annie Pootoogook is a story of national significance. The complex narratives weaving through her short life speak to possibility and heartbreak, truth and reconciliation, the richness of community, and the depths of tragedy. These complexities are recorded in her arresting pencil crayon compositions. Her frank, sometimes challenging, sometimes amusing images of everyday life, acutely observed and marked by a linear control as taut as a wire, declare her as a major contributor to the landscape of contemporary Inuit art. Annie Pootoogook: Cutting Ice accompanies an exhibition organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the gallery of record for works on paper from Annie Pootoogook's Inuit community of Kinngait (Cape Dorset). Under the direction of Nancy Campbell, this publication and the exhibition serve to commemorate the life and work of a remarkable artist a year after her tragically early death" -- Provided by publisher's website.

Henry Ossawa Tanner : art, faith, race, and legacy
Woods, Naurice Frank, Jr., author
New York : Routledge, [2018]
Prologue: Henry Ossawa Tanner, "Negro painter" -- Introduction: Creativity and racism in the nineteenth century -- Of the father and of the son: the rise of Benjamin and Henry Tanner -- Into the south and across the sea: Atlanta and Paris beckon -- The American interlude: race and religion on canvas -- Crossing over Jordan: salon triumph and spiritual crisis -- A salon master in a modern century -- The Great War, the new Negro, and the celestial city -- Epilogue: The redemption of memory.

Over the last forty years, renewed interest in the career of Henry Ossawa Tanner (1859-1937) has vaulted him into expanding scholarly discourse on American art. Consequently, he has emerged as the most studied and recognized representative of African American art during the nineteenth century. In fact, Tanner, in the spirit of political correctness and racial inclusiveness, has gained a prominent place in recent textbooks on mainstream American art and his painting, The Banjo Lesson (1893), has become an iconic symbol of black creativity. In addition, Tanner achieved national recognition when the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1991 and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2012 celebrated him with major retrospectives. The latter exhibition brought in a record number of viewers. While Tanner lived a relatively simple life where his faith and family dictated many of the choices he made daily, his emergence as a prominent black artist in the late nineteenth century often thrust him openly into coping with the social complexities inherent with America's great racial divide. In order to fully appreciate how he negotiated prevailing prejudices to find success, this book places him in the context of a uniquely talented black man experiencing the demands and rewards of nineteenth-century high art and culture. By careful examination on multiple levels previously not detailed, this book adds greatly to existing Tanner scholarship and provides readers with a more complete, richly deserved portrait of this preeminent American master.

What heaven looks like : comments on a strange wordless book
Elkins, James, 1955- author
Astoria, NY : Laboratory Books LLC, [2017]
Contents : Preface -- The book -- The title page -- Plates -- Postscript: Falls from faith in the seventeenth century -- Discussions on the internet -- For further reading -- Index.

"Somewhere in Europe - we don't know where - around 1700. An artist is staring at something on the floor next to her worktable. It's just a log from the woodpile, stood on end. The soft, damp bark; the gently raised growth rings; the dark radial cracks - nothing could be more ordinary . But as the artist looks, and looks, colors begin to appear - shapes - even figures. She turns to a sheet of paper and begins to paint. Today this anonymous artist's masterpiece is preserved in the University of Glasgow Library. It is a manuscript in a plain brown binding, whose entire contents, beyond a cryptic title page, are fifty-two small, round watercolor paintings based on the vision she saw in the ends of firewood logs. This book reproduces the entire sequence of paintings in full color, together with a meditative commentary by the art historian James Elkins. Sometimes, Elkins writes, we can glimpse the artist's sources - Baroque religious art, genre painting, mythology, alchemical manuscripts, emblem books, optical effects. But always she distorts her images, mixes them together, leaves them incomplete - always she rejects familiar stories and clear-cut meanings. In this daring refusal to make sense, Elkins sees an uncannily modern attitude of doubt and skepticism; he draws a portrait of the artist as an irremediably lonely, amazingly independent soul, inhabiting a distinct historical moment between the faded Renaissance and the overconfident Enlightenment. What Heaven Looks Like is a rare event: an encounter between a truly perceptive historian of images, and master conjurer of them." -- front cover inside flap.

Groningen : Groninger Museum ; [2017]
The Groninger Museum presents Romanticism in the North: From Friedrich to Turner, the first international survey exhibition of northern European Romantic landscape painting. Dramatic scenes of raging seas, imposing mountains and erupting volcanoes alternate with quiet moonlit nights and peaceful fields where lonely figures pause to rest. Come and discover more than 95 magnificent works from the Netherlands, Germany, Scandinavia and Great Britain.0Landscape painting flowered in the Romantic era (ca. 1800?1850) thanks to artists like J.M.W. Turner in England, Caspar David Friedrich in Germany and Johan Christian Dahl in Norway. Not only does their work still speak to the imagination today, a new sensibility that developed during the period went on to shape modern art. Along with looking carefully at the world around them, painters began turning their gaze inward as well. The landscapes they painted are as varied and changeable as human emotion. Their depictions of nature provide a spiritual as well as a historical experience.00Exhibition: Groninger Museum, Groningen, The Netherlands (09.12.2017 - 06.05.2018).

Winslow Homer from poetry to fiction : the engraved works : illuminated with period photographs : fully illustrated checklist including interpretive notes
Rhodes, Reilly, author
Laguna Niguel, California : Contemporary and Modern Print Exhibitions, [2017]
Winslow Homer was born gifted with an acute sense of observation that he could communicate in drawing with an almost Masaccio feeling of creating lifelike figures and movement. His continuous output of drawings and use of monochromatic tones served him well as it led up to the central decade of Homer's life when he began to incorporate color with watercolor and oil paint. Homer developed both personally and artistically with an innate sense of where he was in time-he always seemed keenly aware of the changes taking place around him. Illustrating for the pictorial press gave the young artist an opportunity to express his ideas. In the arts and literature, Homer found his calling. Poetry greatly appealed to him. The idea of "divining the heart" with an emotional feeling of a poem was a highly satisfying way of creating images that complemented the poet's words. Over a period of fourteen years, he produced drawings and engravings to accompany lines by the English poets alfred Lord Tennyson and William Barnes, and by American poets Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, William Cullen Bryant, James Russell Lowell, and John Greenleaf Whittier. The engravings of Winslow Homer capture the essence of nineteenth century America with great sensitivitiy and eloquence. In his art, everday moments are transformed into lasting, memorable images. Above all, he provided insight into what life was like during the transformation of American society struggling with political reform, slavery, immigration, suffrage and the rise of industrial and economic diversity."

Figuring history : Robert Colescott, Kerry James Marshall, Mickalene Thomas
edited by Catharina Manchanda ; with essays by Jacqueline Francis and Lowery Stokes Sims
New Haven : Published by the Seattle Art Museum, in association with Yale University Press, [2018]
Contemporary artists Robert Colescott (1925-2009), Kerry James Marshall (b. 1955), and Mickalene Thomas (b. 1971) are distinguished by their attention to a history of representation, which they re-visit and revise to reflect on individual and collective Black experience. Equally engaged with social and political histories, and the history of art, Colescott, Marshall, and Thomas have created works that at times poignantly and satirically critique dominant narratives and posit alternatives. By considering these artists together, this thought-provoking book expands our understanding of contemporary history painting, a genre first defined during the 17th century and known for didactic paintings that often depicted Biblical or mythological subjects, and expressed the tastes and narratives of a ruling class. Colescott, Marshall, and Thomas marry appreciation of these traditional forms of representation to a deep understanding of contemporary American culture to create insightful works that disrupt historic narratives and read canonic art history against the grain.

Becoming a woman in the Age of Enlightenment : French art from the Horvitz Collection
Hyde, Melissa Lee, author
[Boston] : The Horvitz Collection, 2017
Becoming a Woman in the Age of Enlightenment: French Art from the Horvitz Collection' is primarily an exhibition of drawings but will include pastels, paintings, and sculptures selected from one of the world's best private collections of French drawings. The exhibition will feature nearly 120 works by many of the most prominent artists of the eighteenth century, including Antoine Watteau, Nicolas Lancret, François Boucher, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, as well as lesser-known artists both male and female, such as Anne Vallayer-Coster, Gabrielle Capet, François-André Vincent, Philibert-Louis Debucourt. Ranging from spirited, improvisational sketches and figural studies, to highly finished drawings of exquisite beauty, the works included in the exhibition vary in terms of style, genre, and period. Becoming a Woman will be organized into thematic sections that address some of the most important and defining questions of women's lives in the eighteenth century. These include: how the stages of a woman's life were measured; what cultural attitudes and conditions in France shaped how women were defined; what significant relations women formed with men; what social and familial rituals gave order to their lives; what pleasures they pursued; and what work they accomplished. The aim is to bring new insights to the questions of what it meant to be a woman in this period, by offering the first exhibition to focus specifically on representations of women of a broad range of ages and conditions. Exhibition: Harn Museum of Art, University of Florida, Gainesville, USA (06.10.-31.12.2017).

Revisiting Postmodernism
Farrell, Terry, author
Newcastle upon Tyne : RIBA Publishing, [2017]
Revisiting Postmodernism' offers an engaging, wide-ranging and highly illustrated account of postmodernism in architecture from its roots in the 1940s to its ongoing relevance today. This book invites readers to see Postmodernism in a new light: not just a style but a cultural phenomenon that embraces all areas of life and thrives on complexity and pluralism, in contrast to the strait-laced, single-style, top-down inclination of its predecessor, Modernism. While focusing on architecture, this book also explores aspects such as urban masterplanning, furniture design, art and literature. Looking at Postmodernism through the lens of examples from around the world, each chapter explores the movement in the UK on the one hand, and its international counterparts on the other, reflecting on the historical movement but also how postmodernism influences practices today. This book offers the insider's view on postmodernism by Sir Terry Farrell, a recognised pioneer in the field of postmodern architecture and a prestigious and authoritative participant in the postmodern movement. Written by one of postmodernism's greatest pioneers Traces the origins of Postmodernism back to earlier than is generally suggested, and posits that figures usually considered as pure Modernists in fact sowed the seeds of Postmodernism - redefining our notion of what the term means. Covers postmodernism as it exists today and looks at examples from current postmodern practices. Focuses on architecture but also embraces other areas of design, culture and life, including urban planning and place making. Engaging, accessible tone, suitable for a broad range of readers - architects, students, designers and the public.

New design for old buildings
Hunt, Roger, author
Newcastle upon Tyne : RIBA Publishing, [2017]
This book is a celebration of good new design for old buildings and the SPAB philosophy that good new architecture can sit happily alongside old and is preferable to pastiche. Endorsing the value of architects who are engaged to work in the historic environment, this book explores design, materials and technical considerations in creating the best low energy, ecological and sustainable retrofits. It has never been more important to understand how old buildings can be adapted to make them useful and sustainable in the future. Showcasing the best examples of imaginative design and best practice, this book illustrates how old buildings can be made sustainable through the best new design and puts these design exemplars into a historical and philosophical context. With illustrative case studies and interviews throughout, including formal buildings, churches, domestic buildings, commercial, industrial and agricultural from all periods in the UK, 'New Design for Old Buildings' provides essential guidance on good, imaginative new design for old buildings.

Phantom Dada : Flucht durch die Zeit, 1916/2016
Hrsg. Juri Steiner, Stefan Zweifel für dada 100 zürich 2016
Zürich : Scheidegger & Spiess, 2016
Das Zürcher Dada-Jubiläum im Jahr 2016 ging in einem Netzwerk zahlreicher Partner und Institutionen über verschiedenste Bühnen und hat ein weltweites Medienecho ausgelöst. Dutzende internationale Redaktionen berichteten teilweise mehrfach und ausführlich über die Anlässe des spartenübergreifenden Programms rund um die Dada-Geburtsstätte Cabaret Voltaire. Das Dada-Erbe wurde dabei als etwas Schillerndes erkennbar, das man immer weiter erforschen und hinterfragen kann. Aber Dada ist ein Geist, kein Stil, und als solcher nur schwer fassbar. 'Phantom Dada' resümiert nun das Jubiläum mit Essays von zentralen Dada-Experten, vielen internationalen Pressestimmen, einer originellen Stichwortsammlung sowie der Text-Bild-Präsentation der wichtigsten Jubiläumsausstellungen in Zürich und Umgebung. Aus vielen Facetten zusammengesetzt entsteht so ein Phantombild der Avantgardebewegung auf ihrer 100-jährigen Flucht durch die Zeit.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Bachman-Wilson House at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art
DeBerry, Linda, author,
New York, NY : Scala Arts Publishers, Inc., [2017]
"Originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1954, the Bachman-Wilson House now resides, fully restored, in the grounds of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. It is an example of what Wright called Usonian architecture, a distinctly American and democratic style of residential architecture he developed during the Great Depression to be within the reach of the average middle-class family, without sacrificing quality. The house was originally situated in New Jersey but, after being threatened by repeated flooding, the entire structure was dismantled and transported to Crystal Bridges. Meticulously reconstructed from the original plans, the house opened to the public in the autumn of 2015. This fully illustrated publication highlights this classic structure, and further cements the architectural legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright."--
