El Internacional (1984-1986) : New York's archaeological sandwich
Miralda, Antoni, 1942- artist
Paris, France : Éditions Dilecta ; [2016]
El Internacional Tapas Bar & Restaurant was conceived as an artistic project carried out between 1984 and 1986 by artist Antoni Miralda (born 1942) and chef Montse Guillén (born 1946) in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City. One of the first restaurants to introduce Spanish tapas in the United States, El Internacional quickly became a cultural icon and a creative hub of New York's downtown in the 1980s. It combined the social ritual of eating with installation and performance art, blurring the boundaries between food, art, design, architecture and mass media. Miralda's El Internacional (1984-1986) documents the restaurant's history through the memories of the people who contributed to it. Richly illustrated and featuring some of El Internacional's most successful recipes, this volume tells the story of a crucial piece of urban history from a city not always able to protect its landmarks.

Artcenter talks : Graduate seminar : the first decade 1986-1995
edited by Stan Douglas
New York, New York : David Zwirner Books ; 2016
Introduced in 1986 as an initiative by Richard Hertz (Chair, Academic Studies, 1979-2003), the Graduate Art Department of the ArtCenter College of Design, located in Pasadena, California, celebrates its thirtieth anniversary in 2016. This book documents the first decade of the department's existence by presenting a selection from over three hundred talks, including a 1990 symposium conducted by renowned curator and art historian Robert Storr, as well as twelve talks from its artists and critics lecture series known as the Graduate Seminar. Discussions between students and faculty members range from what it means to be an artist and the changing role of art in society, to how artists function within an academic setting.

Rhythm in architecture
Ginzburg, M. I︠A︡. 1892-1946, author
London : Artifice books on architecture, 2016
'Rhythm in Architecture' is the first ever translation into English of a key early Modernist text, written by the celebrated Soviet Constructivist architect Moisei Ginzburg and first published in Russian as Ritm v Arkhitekture in 1923. Ginzburg is most famous for his Narkomfin Building in Moscow, completed in 1932, which he described as a "social condenser": a radical experiment in communal living. While Ginzburg's second book Style and Epoch, published in 1924, is often seen as the manifesto for Russian Constructivism, 'Rhythm in Architecture' -which preceded it-can be seen as his attempt to create a synthesis in thinking about architecture as a whole, seeking to show how "the true essence of all works of architecture" are "inspired by the laws of rhythm". 'Rhythm in Architecture' is republished in cooperation with the Ginzburg Design Practice run by Moisei Ginzburg's grandson, Aleksey and his partner Natalia Shilova. It is the first of a planned series of reprints of Ginzburg's four books, 'Home' (1934) and 'Industrialising Housing Construction' (1937) as well as 'Style and Epoch' (1924)-the only one previously available in English.

Introduction : telling the stories of seven artists -- The empress of in-between : Louise Nevelson -- Girl Searching : Gertrude Abercrombie -- Behind the masks : Loïs Mailou Jones -- "The rebellious bravo" : Ree Morton -- Swimming in light : Joan Brown -- Freeze and melt : Christina Ramberg -- All of a piece : Lenore Tawney -- Coda : perpetual rediscovery.

Donna Seaman brings to life seven forgotten woman artists: Louise Nevelson, Gertrude Abercrombie, Lois Mailou Jones, Ree Morton, Joan Brown, Christina Ramberg, and Lenore Tawney. These women fought to be treated the same as males artists, to be judged by their work, not their gender or appearance. Seaman reveals what drove them, how they worked, and how they were perceived by others in a world where women were subjects -- not makers -- of art--

Lines of thought : drawing from Michelangelo to now
Seligman, Isabel, author
[London] : Thames & Hudson Ltd. : 2016
Looking at works from a range of different artists and their various approaches, this book examines the process and practice of drawing, showcasing artworks from 15th- and 16th-century masters right up to artists working today. In arranging them not by period or style, but by the types of thinking that give rise to them, readers gain fresh insights into the thought processes of some of the world's greatest artists. This thematic rather than chronological structure allows us to place historical drawings side-by-side with modern and contemporary works, to show how artists from widely differing times and places have all used drawing to record, explore and develop ideas. The accompanying exhibition, 'Lines of Thought: Michelangelo to Bridget Riley. Drawings from the British Museum', will tour to venues associated with art schools around the UK, and internationally, to inspire students to draw. The exhibition and this book include highlights of the British Museum's Prints and Drawings collection, as well as some lesser-known contemporary works. Exhibition: Poole Museum and Art Gallery (September 3-November 6, 2016); The Brynmor Jones Library Art Gallery, University of Hull (January 1-February, 2017); Ulster Museum, Belfast (March 12-May 5, 2017); New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe (May-September 2017); RISD Museum, Rhode Island School of Design, Providence (October 2917-January 2018).

Art of Mesopotamia
Bahrani, Zainab, 1962- author
New York, New York : Thames & Hudson Inc., [2017]
Mesopotamia is considered the cradle of Western civilization, and the diverse societies that flourished there, nestled around the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, were as culturally rich as this attribution would suggest. Spanning a significant historical period, from 8000 BCE to the arrival of Islam in 636 CE, Art of Mesopotamia explores spectacular structures and objects, as well as the techniques artists used, in order to gain insight into the beliefs and practices of ancient peoples. The volume also introduces the archaeologists who discovered these sites more than a thousand years later. Richly illustrated with more than 400 full-color photographs, Art of Mesopotamia is an astounding record by award-winning author Zainab Bahrani of artworks from this region, many of which have in recent years been damaged or destroyed by war, and as such is of particular and lasting importance. It includes the most up-to-date scholarship and reflects significant new approaches to Mesopotamian art over the past few decades.

The hinterland : cabins, love shacks and other hide-outs
edited by Sven Ehmann and Robert Klanten
Berlin : Gestalten, 2016
We all need to be somewhere else, just for a little while. The cabin is that somewhere else. They allow us to get into a different state of mind, one where we can just have a good time. Four walls and a roof and a weekend--these getaways free us from the distracting and unessential, and put us back in touch with nature and our own inner peace. In cabins, we can savor solitude or share experiences with friends among mountains, rivers, woods, and wildlife. The Hinterland explores architecture and design approaches to creating the refuges that refresh and revitalize amidst the beauty of nature.

Revolution : Russian art 1917-1932
artistic director, Tim Marlow ; exhibition curators, John Milner, Natalia Murray, Ann Dumas, assisted by Rebecca Bray ; exhibition catalogue, Beatrice Gullström, Alison Hissey, Carola Krueger, Peter Sawbridge, Nick Tite ; translation from the Russian, Ruth Addison, Antonina Bouis
London : Royal Academy of Arts, [2017]
Revolution: Russian Art, 1917-1932' encapsulates a momentous period in Russian history that is vividly expressed in the diversity of art produced between 1917, the year of the October Revolution, and 1932 when Stalin began to suppress the avant-garde and its debates. Based around the great exhibition of 1932 held at the State Russian Museum in Leningrad, the book explores the fascinating themes and artistic developments of the first fifteen years of the Soviet state, including painting, sculpture, ceramics, posters, graphics and film. The exhibition itself was to be the swansong of avant-garde art in Russia: new policies quickly ensured that Socialist Realism - collective in production, public in manifestation and Communist in ideology - was to become the only acceptable art form. This volume is a timely and authoritative exploration of how modern art in all its forms flourished, was recognised, celebrated, and broken by implacable authority all within fifteen years.

Grimanesa Amorós : ocupante
edited by = herausgegeben Beate Reifenscheid ; authors: Beate Reifenscheid, Andreas Backoefer ; interviewer: Tim Goossens
[München] : Hirmer, [2016]
Organische Formen und eine instinktive Herangehensweise kennzeichnen das Werk der vielfach ausgezeichneten peruanisch-amerikanischen Lichtkünstlerin Grimanesa Amorós. Die Grundlage ihrer faszinierenden Skulpturen stellen jedoch Naturwissenschaften, Sozialgeschichte und kritische Theorie dar. So treten in ihren Werken Forschung und Gefühl in Kommunikation. 00Die raumgreifenden Skulpturen und Videoinstallationen von Amorós wurden bereits über den Globus verteilt gezeigt: von Mexiko über Tel Aviv und Peking bis hin zum Times Square in New York. Ihre neuesten Arbeiten 'Ocupante' und 'Golden secret room' präsentiert sie nun im Ludwig Museum Koblenz. Die Künstlerin erschafft spielerische Licht-Installationen, die in ihrer Rätselhaftigkeit vielschichtige Deutungen zulassen. Gemeinsam mit einer Werkübersicht gibt der Band diese Arbeiten in großformatigen Abbildungen wieder und bringt deren Fluidität und Leuchtkraft zum Ausdruck. 00Exhibition: Ludwig Museum im Deutschherrenhaus, Koblenz, Germany (14.02-10.04.2016).

Studies in Aegean art and culture : a New York Aegean Bronze Age Colloquium in Memory of Ellen N. Davis
edited by Robert B. Koehl
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania : INSTAP Academic Press, 2016
The papers published here are dedicated to the memory of Ellen N. Davis, one of the most valued and beloved Aegean scholars of her generation. All of the articles are in some way inspired or influenced by Davis? own contributions to the field. In the area of metalwork, several papers investigate interconnections within and around the Aegean during the Early, Middle and Late Bronze Ages (Betancourt, Ferrence and Muhly, Weingarten, Kopcke), while others examine metal ware in its social context (Wiener). Papers on wall painting range from studies of pigments and optical illusions (Vlachopoulos), to representations of water (Shank). Anthropomorphic representations, or their absence, of goddesses or priestesses (Jones), rulers (Palaima), or initiates (Koehl) are also studied here with new eyes and fresh insights.

Marsden Hartley's Maine
Cassidy, Donna, author
New York : The Metropolitan Museum of Art, [2017]
Marsden Hartley (1877-1943) was a well-traveled American modernist painter, poet, and essayist, but it is his life-long artistic engagement with his home state of Maine that defines his career. Maine served as a creative springboard, a locus of memory and longing, a refuge, and a means of communion with other artists, such as Winslow Homer, who painted there. This is the first book to look at the artist's complex relationship with the Pine Tree State, providing a nuanced understanding of Hartley's impressive range in over 80 works, from the early Post-Impressionist interpretations of seasonal change to the late depictions of Mount Katahdin, the most dramatic and enduring series in his oeuvre.00Exhibition: The Met Breuer, New York, USA (14.03-18.06.2017); Colby College Museum, Waterville, USA (18.07-12.11.2017).

Lost futures : the disappearing architecture of post-war Britain
Hopkins, Owen, author
London : Royal Academy of Arts, 2017
Lost Futures looks in detail at the wide range of buildings constructed in Britain between 1945 and 1979. Although their bold architectural aspirations reflected the forward-looking social ethos of the postwar era, many have since been either demolished or altered beyond recognition. Photographs taken at the time of their completion are accompanied by expertly researched captions that examine the buildings' design, creation, the ideals they embodied and the reasons for their eventual destruction. 'Lost Futures' covers many building types, from housing to factories, commercial spaces and power stations, and presents the work of both iconic and lesser-known architects. The author charts the complex reasons that led to the loss of these projects' ambitious futures, and assesses whether some might one day be recaptured. 00Exhibition: Royal Academy of Arts, London, UK (February 2017).

Contemporary art Colombia
editor, Hossein Amirsadeghi ; essays, Christine Barthe, Jaime Céron
[London] : Thames & Hudson, [2016]
The origins of modern art in Colombia / Jaime Céron -- Instabilities / Christine Barthe -- A conversation with Fernando Botero / Catherine Petitgas.

Colombia's contemporary art scene remains relatively unknown outside that country. Including ninety profiles of key players and four critical essays, this book captures the renewed dynamism of the Colombian art world. After fifty years of violent civil conflict, in 2002 the Colombian authorities initiated an ambitious peace process with the armed guerrillas. Between 2010 and the start of 2015, the Colombian economy saw the fastest rate of growth in Latin America, and one of the fastest in the world. This buoyant economic climate has benefited the art world, resulting in a proliferation of private and public initiatives over the past decade.Contemporary Art Colombia features key figures, institutions, and spaces in the reemergence of the Colombian art scene.

Subversion and surrealism in the art of Honoré Sharrer
edited by M. Melissa Wolfe ; essays by Sarah Burns, Robert Cozzolino, Michael Lobel, M. Melissa Wolfe, Adam Desmond Zagorin
[Columbus, OH] : Columbus Museum of Art ; [2016]
"This book offers the first critical reassessment of an artist whose mature oeuvre constitutes a rich and often disquieting critique that is equal parts wit, seduction, and bite. Honoré Sharrer (1920-2009) was a major figure in the years surrounding World War II, though her commitment to leftist ideals and an alternate trajectory of surrealism put her at increasing odds with the political and artistic climate of the time"--

William Kentridge, Vivienne Koorland : conversations in letters and lines
Tamar Garb, Briony Fer, Joseph Leo Koerner, Ed Krčma, Griselda Pollock
Edinburgh : The Fruitmarket Gallery, [2016]
William Kentridge and Vivienne Koorland are two of South Africa's foremost visual artists. Kentridge is a successful animated filmmaker, opera director, performer and draughtsman, while Koorland has enjoyed widespread critical acclaim as a painter, printmaker and maker of objects. Born in the 1950s, they first met as university students in the mid-1970s, and have been talking about art ever since. Their friendship of nearly forty years has been mutually enriching, as the art of each has inspired and informed the other. This significant volume brings together a diverse selection of works from each artist to explore the formal and thematic links between their different practices. It focuses on the role of writing in their work, the relationship between drawing, painting and animation, their interest in film, their understanding of lines, alphabets and letters and the relationship between the iconic and the abstract, and maps and mapping. The book is divided into four essays by Briony Fer, Griselda Pollock, Joseph Leo Koerner and Ed Krcma, each of which provides a fresh perspective on the artists and their work, as well as a conversation between the artists and curator Tamar Garb, exploring the themes highlighted by the exhibition. 00Exhibition: Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, United Kingdom (19.11.2016-19.02.2017).

This new history of modernism in Scandinavia offers a picture of the complex reality that lies behind the label: a modernism made up of many different figures, impulses and visions. It places the individuals who have achieved international fame, such as Edvard Munch and Alvar Aalto in a wider context, and through a series of case studies, provides a rich analysis of the art, architecture and design history of the Nordic region, and of modernism as a concept and mode of practice. Scandinavian Modern addresses the decades between 1890 and 1970 and presents an intertwined history of modernism across the region. Charlotte Ashby gives a rationale for her focus on those countries which share an interrelated history and colonial past, but also stresses influences from outside the region, such as the English Arts and Crafts movement and the impact of emergent American modernism. Her richly illustrated account guides the reader through key historical periods and cultural movements, with case studies illuminating key art works, buildings, designed products and exhibitions"--

Douglas Snelling : pan-Pacific modern design and architecture
Jackson, Davina, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2017
Douglas Burrage Snelling (1916-85) was one of Britain's significant emigre architects and designers. Born in England and educated in New Zealand, he became one of Australia's leading mid-century architects, of luxury residences and commercial buildings, and a trend-setting designer of furniture, interiors and landscapes. This is the first comprehensive study of Snelling's pan-Pacific life, works and trans-disciplinary significance. It provides a critical examination of this recently controversial modernist, revealing him to be a colourful and talented character who led antipodean interpretations of American, especially Wrightian and southern Californian, architecture, design and lifestyle innovations.

Monika Grzymala : drawing spatially = Raumzeichnung : works 2011-16
Grzymala, Monika, 1970- artist
Berlin, Germany : Hatje Cantz Verlag, [2016]
Monika Grzymala (*1970) began her artistic training as a stone sculptor and restorer, after which she studied visual art at the art colleges in Karlsruhe, Kassel, and Hamburg. The Berlin-based installation artist generally describes her work as "spatial drawing" and has presented her works in numerous international group and solo exhibitions, at, among others, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Kunsthalle Hamburg, the Fabrica Brighton, the Albertina in Vienna, and most recently at the Reykjavik Art Museum. Grzymala sees the drawing as thought carried out manually and the physical line poised to come into being, whereby the spatial drawing represents a gesture that plays into the architecture and therefore causes the installation artist's sculptural mode of thought, her "physical thinking," to become visible in unique spatial drawings. This monograph shows how impressively this can be experienced.

The Medici's painter : Carlo Dolci and 17th-century Florence
edited by Eve Straussman-Pflanzer with Francesca Baldassari
Wellesley, Massachusetts : Davis Museum at Wellesley College, [2017]
Carlo Dolci (1616-1687), arguably the greatest painter in 17th-century Florence, was admired and patronized by the city's leading families. Best known for his half-length and single-figure devotional pictures, Dolci was also a gifted painter of altarpieces and portraits. Written by a team of distinguished scholars, The Medici's Painter offers new archival discoveries and insights and features cross-disciplinary approaches to Dolci's life and art and the cultural and political contexts in which he worked. The volume sheds new light on Dolci's significant and impressive body of work. The painter understood the power of his paintings to inspire contemporaries, and his works continue to compel individuals to look closely and feel deeply about art.00Exhibition: Davis Museum, Wellesley, USA (08.02-09.07.2017); Nasher Museum of Art, Durham, USA (24.8.2017-14.01.2018).

Designing modern Norway : a history of design discourse
Fallan, Kjetil, author
London ; Routledge, 2017
Designing Modern Norway: A History of Design Discourse' is an intellectual history of design and its role in configuring the modern Norwegian nation state. Rather than a conventional national design history survey that focuses on designers and objects, this is an in-depth study of the ideologies, organizations, strategies and politics that combined might be said to have "designed" the modern nation's material and visual culture. The book analyses main tropes and threads in the design discourse generated around key institutions such as museums, organisations and magazines. Beginning with how British and continental design reform ideas were mediated in Norway and merged with a nationalist sentiment in the late nineteenth century, 'Designing Modern Norway' traces the tireless and wide-ranging work undertaken by enthusiastic and highly committed design professionals throughout the twentieth century to simultaneously modernise the nation by design and to nationalise modern design. Bringing the discussion up towards the present, the book concludes with an examination of how Norway's new-found wealth has profoundly changed the production, mediation and consumption of design.

London : Philip Wilson Publishers, an imprint of I.B. Tauris & Co. Ltd, [2017]
This accompanying publication will explore the development and diversity of this legendary dynasty of Flemish painters over four generations and 150 years. From the proverb pictures and peasant festivals of Pieter Bruegel the Elder and his eldest son Pieter Brueghel the Younger to the exquisite flower pieces of Jan 'Velvet' Brueghel and the captivating cabinet paintings of Jan van Kessel, the book will unravel the mysteries of the dynasty, and will explore how Bruegel's sons were able to emulate their father's model despite having no access to his paintings. The book will turn the spotlight on to the major Bruegel holdings in UK collections for the first time, telling the story of the dynasty through masterpieces from British public collections and a number of previously unseen works from private collections.

Munich, Germany : DelMonico Books/Prestel ; [2017]
Known for graphic sewn paintings-which she makes by stitching together pieces of painted and raw canvas-as well as patterned tile structures which transform architecture into painting, Crowner works in a variety of media spanning the fine and applied arts. Her work from the past decade comes alive through installation shots, studio views, and source images which have inspired her and which pay homage to many lesser- known artists, designers, and performers of the 20th century. An interview with Crowner accompanies essays discussing her practice and her exhibition at MASS MoCA. With a bold and colorful design that echoes Crowner's sensibility, this book examines the artist's inclusive, yet singular vision.

Leiden ; Brill, [2017]
The "Libri di Bottega" : a covert transmission -- Issues and forms -- The processes -- Through the paintings : a few significant examples. Investigations carried out at the Capodimonte Museum in Naples.

In 'Literature and Artistic Practice in the Sixteenth Century' Angela Cerasuolo, art historian and restorer, tracks the technical processes of painting through the cross-analysis of literary texts and works of art. Having traced the critical fortunes of the texts of the authors-Leonardo, Vasari, Armenini, Borghini, Lomazzo-she compares the information on drawing and painting, analysing the specific terminology, and identifying the materials and methods. Central themes of the theoretical debate-'disegno', 'invenzione', the contrast between 'prestezza' and 'diligenza', the 'paragone'-are examined in the light of their relationship with the techniques. On the basis of scientific studies on the technical execution of paintings, works from the Capodimonte Museum, Naples are analysed as case studies.

A humument : a treated Victorian novel
Phillips, Tom, 1937- author
London : Thames & Hudson Ltd, 2016
In 1966 the artist Tom Phillips discovered A Human Document (1892), an obscure Victorian romance by W.H. Mallock, and set himself the task of altering every page, by painting, collage or cut-up techniques, to create an entirely new version. Some of Mallock's original text remains in tact and through the illustrated pages the character of Bill Toge, Phillips's anti-hero, and his romantic plight emerges. First published in 1973, the book quickly established itself as a cult classic. Since then, the artist has been working towards a complete revision of his original, adding new pages in successive editions. That process is now finished. This 50th anniversary edition presents, for the first time, an entirely new and complete version of 'A Humument'. This edition includes a revised Introduction by the artist, reflecting on the last 50 years' work on this project, and 92 new illustrated pages. A Special Limited edition is also available: this presents a copy of the 50th anniversary edition in a clamshell box with a limited-edition print, signed by the artist.

The visual biography of color
Jacobus, Frank, author
[San Francisco, California] : ORO Editions, [2017]
The Visual Biography of Color' is a first chance at a second look at colour, which is so often overlooked in every day living. While other books discuss the phenomenon of colour from a cultural perspective, 'The Visual Biography of Color' reveals colour through time by using information graphics and other forms of data visualisation to visually describe colour's cultural role. The book moves the reader through the visible spectrum, as they turn the pages they exist inside of red, then orange, then yellow. In red, they encounter the evolution of red states in the U.S., the compilation of every red subway line in every major world city collapsed onto a single page, and they see a radiant wheel that displays every major song that has red in its title. As they continue to move through the book they'll read about how artists, musicians, and other great thinkers have considered individual colours. Colour is vital as a communicating cultural mechanism. Instead of a pure revelation of conceit, the book embraces what one might consider high-brow and low-brow culture, embracing colloquialisms and idioms that reveal how deeply embedded the idea of colour is in our colour-filled world.

Recent work / Rem Koolhaas -- The Paul S. Byard Memorial Lecture / Rem Koolhaas -- OMA'S Preservation manifesto -- Supplement to OMA'S Preservation manifesto / Jorge Otero-Pailos.

Preservation is Overtaking Us brings together two lectures given by Rem Koolhaas at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, along with a response (framed as a supplement to the original lectures) by Jorge Otero-Pailos. In the first essay Koolhaas describes alternative strategies for preserving Beijing, China. The second talk marks the inaugural Paul Spencer Byard lecture, named in celebration of the longtime professor of Historic Preservation at GSAPP. These two lectures trace key moments of Koolhaas' thinking on preservation, including his practice's entry into China and the commission to redevelop the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. In a format well known to Koolhaas' readers, Otero-Pailos reworks the lectures into a working manifesto, using it to interrogate OMA's work from within the discipline of preservation.

The optimum imperative : Czech architecture for the socialist lifestyle, 1938-1968
Miljački, Ana, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
The Optimum Imperative examines architecture's multiple entanglements within the problem of Socialist lifestyle in postwar Czechoslovakia. Situated in the period loosely bracketed by the signing of the Munich accords in 1938, which affected Czechoslovakia's entrance into World War II, and the Warsaw Pact troops' occupation of Prague in 1968, the book investigates three decades of Czech architecture, highlighting a diverse cast of protagonists. Key among them are the theorist and architect Karel Honzik and a small group of his colleagues in the Club for the Study of Consumption; the award-winning Czechoslovak Pavilion at the 1958 World Expo in Brussels; and SIAL, a group of architects from Liberec that emerged from the national network of Stavoprojekt offices during the reform years, only to be subsumed back into it in the wake of Czechoslovak normalization. This episodic approach enables a long view of the way that the project of constructing Socialism was made disciplinarily specific for architecture, through the constant interpretation of Socialist lifestyle, both as a narrative framework and as a historical goal. Without sanitizing history of its absurd contortions in discourse and in daily life, the book takes as its subject the complex and dynamic relationships between Cold War politics, state power, disciplinary legitimating narratives, and Czech architects' optimism for Socialism. It proposes that these key dimensions of practicing architecture and building Socialism were intertwined, and even commensurate at times, through the framework of Socialist lifestyle.

Australia's impressionists
edited by Christopher Riopelle ; Tim Bonyhady and three others ; with contributions from Alex J. Taylor
London : National Gallery Company Limited, 2016
Australia's Impressionists' introduces a worldwide audience to Impressionism as it manifested itself in artistic movements beyond Europe. This catalogue features over 35 paintings, including important masterpieces by Australia's leading artists, many of which have never previously been shown outside the country. In 1889 a group of artists working in Melbourne opened the '9 by 5 Impression Exhibition', an ambitious display that sought to introduce local society to their version of Impressionism. These artists - Tom Roberts, Charles Conder, Arthur Streeton - presented some 180 oil sketches. Many of these scenes of contemporary life, using a vividly coloured palette, were painted on panels, from cigar boxes, of around 9 x 5 inches, which gave the show its name. In fact these pictures owed more to Whistler, whose works Roberts had seen in London in 1884, than to French Impressionism. Drawing on a wider interest in national identity among the non-Indigenous population, Conder, Roberts and Streeton championed a new Australian landscape style. This drew on the practices of European plein-air artists, but the resulting pictures became larger and more ambitious in manner; paintings of the leisured lifestyle offered by Sydney Harbour are recorded with cheerful pride, while scenes of the bush - albeit never too far from the city - are elevated to a mode of heroic myth. John Peter Russell, a friend and correspondent of Roberts, was born and died in Sydney, but spent some 40 years as an expatriate in Europe. Russell spent his working life in the company of Van Gogh, Monet and Rodin. While his talents as a colourist made a deep impression on the young Matisse, his innovative art was only rediscovered in the later twentieth century.

Hokusai x manga : Japanese pop culture since 1680
edited by Sabine Schulze, Nora von Achenbach, Simon Klingler
Munich : Hirmer, [2016]
Early Japanese popular culture, in the form of the coloured woodcuts of artists like Hokusai and Kuniyoshi, achieved world fame after Japan's opening. The pop culture of today, from manga to anime, has also conquered the globe. Now the sheets and books of woodcuts by the most famous renowned ukiyo-e artists confront the visual mass media in the comics and cartoons of modern Japan. The high-quality Japanese woodcuts and graphic novels from the 17th to the 19th centuries are products of an urban popular culture in pre-modern Japan, in which clothing, stage stars, myths, monsters, sexuality and commerce were the governing factors. The publication shows the enchanting imagery of both historical and contemporary pop culture in Japan, which today focuses on manga and anime. Short texts spotlight the art of the woodcut in the Edo period, such as the famous shunga sheets, together with selected excerpts from manga, including those by Jiro Taniguchi and Inio Asano as well as the current developments in the manga phenomenon in the Japan of the 21st century.

A passion for the Arctic : the Hans van Berkel Collection : art and handicrafts from Canada, Greenland and Siberia
Cunera Buijs, editor ; contributors, Cunera Buijs, Frédéric Laugrand, Jarich Oosten, Cornelius Remie and Karel Stevens
Volendam : LM Publishers, [2016]
"In 2015, the Dutch collector Hans van Berkel (1946), granted his private collection of Inuit and Chukchi art and handicrafts to the National Museum of Ethnology in Leiden--now part of the larger National Museum of World Cultures encompassing three museums in three different cities. Starting in the early 1970s, Van Berkel has built up the most important and comprehensive private Inuit-related collection in the Netherlands. Van Berkel was first inspired to begin collecting when he came into contact with Leo Mol, a renowned sculptor in Winnipeg, Canada. Gifts from him were the first Inuit art objects in what later became the Van Berkel collection. This book not only presents some of his most beautiful or interesting artefacts, it also places the developments in art in a historical, political and economic context of the culture involved. Reflecting Van Berkel's special interests, shamanism and spiritual culture are particularly well represented in the collection, which showcases the skilled craftsmanship of Inuit and Chukchi artisans. Also included are tourist art and objects depicting the daily lives of hunters, reindeer herders, and their wives, which reflect the norms and values of these intriguing cultures of northern Canada, Greenland, and Siberia"--Page 4 of cover.

Richard Deacon : what you see is what you get
edited by Anita Feldman and Ariel Plotek
San Diego : The San Diego Museum of Art, [2017]
Among the artists who redefined British sculpture in the 1980s, Richard Deacon (born 1949) remains a pioneering figure. This book presents the full range of the artist?s oeuvre, from freestanding sculptures and wall-mounted works to glazed ceramics and works on paper. Deacon sidesteps the issue of technique: nails, screws and mounts are not hidden in his sculptures, and willowy bent-wood pieces contrast with carefully engineered constructions in galvanized steel and welded polycarbonate. Like the tension in so many of Deacon?s titles, this book suggests a paradox. As with the whole of the artist?s oeuvre, the selection in this book?spanning more than 30 years?is based on contradictions: the tension between a word and its meaning. 00Exhibition: San Diego Museum of Art, United States (25.03.-25.07.2017).

The art of the Qurʼan : treasures from the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts
Massumeh Farhad and Simon Rettig ; with contributions by François Déroche, Edhem Eldem, Jane McAuliffe, Sana Mirza, and Zeren Tanındı
Washington, DC : Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, [2016]
This story unfolds in Qur'ans from the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts, the companion publication to the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery's groundbreaking exhibition, the first major presentation of Qur'ans in the United States. The book's authors describe the formation of this one-of-a-kind collection and the history of TIEM, whose centuries-old records on patrons, calligraphers, illuminators, and provenance allow us to create "biographies" detailing the production of the Qur'ans in the exhibition. Essays address the Qur'an as a written text--from content and organization to the elaborate calligraphy and illuminated designs that transformed the volumes into beautiful artworks. Qur'ans also includes in-depth descriptions of some seventy works from TIEM and the Smithsonian's Sackler and Freer Galleries. It features full-page, color images of the earliest known Qur'an folios and manuscripts from the Umayyad and Abbasid Near East (7th-10th century), Seljuk Iran and Anatolia (12th century), the Mongol Il-Khanid and Timurid empires and Mamluk Cairo (14th and 15th centuries), Safavid and Ottoman empires (16th and 17th centuries) as well as a number of mosque furnishings, such as Qur'an boxes and stands. Most of these works have rarely, if ever, been published. --Publisher.

Volume 1. Preface -- Aubrey Beardsley: a chronology. Catalogue : Juvenilia 1880-1888 -- Early drawings, Japonesques and grotesques 1889-1893 -- Le Morte Darthur 1892-1894 -- Bon-Mots series 1892-1893 -- Keynotes series 1893-1896.

This is the first book to bring together the recorded works of the English artist Aubrey Beardsley. Linda Gertner Zatlin's text presents Beardley's drawings with a full record of their making, provenance, exhibition history and references in the art historical literature. This material record is accompanied by often extensive discussions of their themes, motifs and symbolism, as well as their critical reception. Unprecedented in its scope and thoroughness, this study presents Beardsley's work and explores its meanings more comprehensively than any previous work on him; it is likely to remain definitive. This superbly illustrated catalogue is both an essential reference for specialists and an accessible and enchanting delight for Beardsley enthusiasts.

Rafael Soriano : the artist as mystic = el artista como místico
Elizabeth Thompson Goizueta, editor ; translators: Vicente Echerri & Ileana Fuentes
Boston : McMullen Museum of Art, Boston College, [2017]
Cuban painter Rafael Soriano (1920-2015) was an acclaimed master of geometric abstraction and a global figure in the twentieth-century art world. His work resonated with such international artists of Latin American origin as Roberto Matta, Rufino Tamayo, and Wifredo Lam. As a result of the revolution in Cuba in 1959, Soriano left the country in 1962 for the United States. The effect of the Cuban revolution on his art as well as his aesthetics in general are the focus of this book, an unprecedented examination of his entire oeuvre. Featuring more than ninety paintings, pastels, and drawings, this bilingual English-Spanish catalog begins with a contextual analysis of Soriano's relationship to the Cuban avant-garde and his position within the emerging mid-century modernists. Essays then trace his evolving styles, examining his work through the lens of surrealism and European and Latin American transnational aesthetics. The idea of exile and struggle is a leitmotif and is framed within questions of transcendence and spirituality.

Cosmos and community in early medieval art
Anderson, Benjamin, author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2017]
Introduction: solitude and community -- 1. Tyranny and splendor -- 2. Declaration and transaction -- 3. Carolingian consensus -- 4. Byzantine dissensus -- Conclusion.

"In the rapidly changing world of the early Middle Ages, depictions of the cosmos represented a consistent point of reference across the three dominant states-the Frankish, Byzantine, and Islamic Empires. As these empires diverged from their Greco-Roman roots between 700 and 1000 A.D. and established distinctive medieval artistic traditions, cosmic imagery created a web of visual continuity, though local meanings of these images varied greatly. Benjamin Anderson uses thrones, tables, mantles, frescoes, and manuscripts to show how cosmological motifs informed relationships between individuals, especially the ruling elite, and communities, demonstrating how domestic and global politics informed the production and reception of these depictions. The first book to consider such imagery across the dramatically diverse cultures of Western Europe, Byzantium, and the Islamic Middle East, [it] illuminates the distinctions between the cosmological art of these three cultural spheres, and reasserts the centrality of astronomical imagery to the study of art history."--Jacket flap.

Color science and the visual arts : a guide for conservators, curators, and the curious

Los Angeles : The Getty Conservation Institute, [2016]
Spectral measurements -- Color and spatial vision -- Visual and numerical color descriptions -- Metamerism and color inconstancy -- Displaying artwork -- Painting materials -- Color reproduction.

In lively and accessible prose, color science expert Roy S. Berns helps the reader understand complex color-technology concepts and offers solutions to problems that occur when art is displayed, conserved, imaged, or reproduced. Berns writes for two types of audiences: museum professionals seeking explanations for common color-related issues and students in conservation, museum studies, and art history programs. The seven chapters in the book fall naturally into two sections: fundamentals, covering topics such as spectral measurements, metamerism, or color inconstancy; and applications, where artwork display, painting materials, and color reproduction are discussed. A unique feature of this book is the use of more than 200 images as its main medium of communication, employing color physics, color vision, and imaging science to produce visualizations throughout the pages.--Publisher description.

Beginning in the fall of 2013, the Frist Center began a relationship with Shinique Smith that has deepened over the years to inspire the publication of this book, a lasting document of our esteem. Her work has been presented at the Frist Center almost continuously over the past three years. Smith was one of the artists in "30 Americans", a touring exhibition drawn from the Rubell Family Collection in Miami. Intrigued by Smith's two sculptures in that exhibition, the Frist Center curator in charge of "30 Americans", Kathryn Delmez, subsequently organized "Shinique Smith: Wonder and Rainbows", a 2015 solo show in the Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery. During the preparation of "Wonder and Rainbows", Frist Center educators Shaun Giles and Rosemary Brunton initiated a colalborative project with local teaching artists that would result in "Found Narratives", a 2016 exhibition inspired by Smith's work.

Dangerous perfection : ancient funerary vases from southern Italy
Ursula Kästner and David Saunders, editors ; with contributions by Ludmila Akimova, Marie Dufková, Andrea Milanese, Elena Minina, Sonja Radujkovic, Dunja Rütt, Priska Schilling-Colden, Marie Svoboda, Mark Weir, Bernd Zimmermann
Los Angeles : J. Paul Getty Museum, [2016]
In 2008, the Berlin Antikensammlung initiated a project with the J. Paul Getty Museum to conserve a group of ancient funerary vases from southern Italy. Monumental in scale and richly decorated, these magnificent vessels were discovered in hundreds of fragments in the early nineteenth century at Ceglie, near Bari. Acquired by a Bohemian diplomat, they were reconstructed in the Neapolitan workshop of Raffaele Gargiulo, who was considered one of the leading restorers of antiquities in Europe. His methods exemplify what was referred to as "une perfection dangereuse," an approach to reassembly and repainting that made it difficult to distinguish what was ancient and what was modern. Bringing together archival documentation and technical analyses, this volume provides a comprehensive study of the vases and their treatment from the nineteenth century up to today. In addition to lavish illustrations, two in-depth essays on the history of the vases and on Gargiulo's work, as well as detailed conservation notes for each object, this publication also features the first English translation of Gargiulo's original text on his understanding as to how ancient Greek vases were manufactured. This is the companion volume to an exhibition on view at the Getty Villa, from November 19, 2014, to May 11, 2015, and then at the Antikensammlung, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin from June 17, 2015, to June 18, 2017.

Beyond critique : contemporary art in theory, practice, and instruction
edited by Pamela Fraser and Roger Rothman
New York, NY : Bloomsbury Academic, 2017
History and theory -- Practice -- Instruction.

Critique has long been a central concept within art practice and theory. Since the emergence of Conceptual Art, artists have been expected by critics, curators, and art school faculty to focus their work on exposing and debunking ideologies of power and domination. Recently, however, the effectiveness of cultural critique has come into question. The appearance of concepts such as the "speculative," the "reparative," and the "constructive" suggests an emerging postcritical paradigm. Beyond Critique takes stock of the current discourse around this issue. With some calling for a renewed criticality and others rejecting the model entirely, the book's contributors explore a variety of new and recently reclaimed criteria for contemporary art and its pedagogy. Some propose turning toward affect and affirmation; others seek to reclaim such allegedly discredited concepts as intimacy, tenderness, and spirituality. With contributions from artists, critics, curators and historians, this book provides new ways of thinking about the historical role of critique while also exploring a wide range of alternative methods and aspirations.

Phulkari : the embroidered textiles of Punjab from the Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz collection
edited by Darielle Mason ; with essays by Cristin McKnight Sethi and Darielle Mason
Philadelphia : Philadelphia Museum of Art ; [2017]
Exquisite and labor-intensive, phulkari ("floral-work" or "flower-craft") embroideries were originally produced by women in towns and villages across the greater Punjab, a region that today straddles Pakistan and India, from at least the early 19th century into the first decades of the 20th. Phulkaris were made from brightly colored silk thread on rough, earth-toned fabric. When done for domestic use, they functioned primarily as women's wraps at weddings or other important events. Especially following the Punjab's devastating partition in 1947, phulkaris were also produced as commercial exports. Focusing on a group of nineteen stunning works from the collection of Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz, Phulkari surveys the genre's fascinating history. This is the first publication outside South Asia specifically on this art form. It also offers significant new information on the craft and its importance to personal, familial, and regional identity in the past and the present.00Exhibition: Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, USA (12.03-09.07.2017).

Satire, prints and theatricality in the French Revolution
Trévien, Claire, 1985- author
Oxford : Voltaire Foundation, [2016]
Introduction : the other stage of the French Revolution -- Singing the scene : chansons and images in prints -- Le monde à l'envers : the carnivalesque in prints -- The spectacle of science : illusion in prints -- Théâtre de l'ombre : visions of afterlife in prints -- Conclusion.

"The Revolutionary era was a period of radical change in France that dissolved traditional boundaries of privilege, and a time when creative experimentation flourished. As performance and theatrical language became an integral part of the French Revolution, its metaphors seeped into genres beyond the stage. Claire Trévien traces the ways in which theatrical activity influenced Revolutionary print culture, particularly its satirical prints, and considers how these became an arena for performance in their own right. Following an account of the historical and social contexts of Revolutionary printmaking, the author analyses over 50 works, incorporating scenes such as street singers and fairground performers, unsanctioned Revolutionary events, and the representation of Revolutionary characters in hell. Through analysing these depictions as an ensemble, focusing on style, vocabulary, and metaphor, Claire Trévien shows how prints were a potent vehicle for capturing and communicating partisan messages across the political spectrum. In spite of the intervening centuries, these prints still retain the power to evoke the Revolution like no other source material.--

Animation in the Middle East : practice and aesthetics from Baghdad to Casablanca
editor, Stefanie Van de Peer
London : I.B. Tauris, 2017
"The internationally acclaimed films Persepolis and Waltz with Bashir only hinted at the vibrant animation culture that exists within the Middle East and North Africa. In spite of censorship, oppression and war, animation studios have thrived in recent years - in Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Syria and Turkey - giving rise to a whole new generation of entrepreneurs and artists. The success of animation in the Middle East is in part a product of a changing cultural climate, which is increasingly calling for art that reflects politics. Equally, the professionalization and popularization of film festivals and the emergence of animation studios and private initiatives are the results of a growing consumer culture, in which family-friendly entertainment is big business. This book uncovers the history and politics that have defined the practice and study of animation in the Middle East, and explores the innovative visions of contemporary animators in the region."--

This volume presents the first comprehensive academic study of the history and development of performance art in the former communist countries of Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe since the 1960s. Covering 21 countries and more than 250 artists, this text demonstrates the manner in which performance art in the region developed concurrently with the genre in the West, highlighting the unique contributions of Eastern European artists. The discussions are based on primary source material-interviews with the artists themselves. It offers a comparative study of the genre of performance art in countries and cities across the region, examining the manner in which artists addressed issues such as the body, gender, politics and identity, and institutional critique.

Architecture and landscape in medieval Anatolia, 1100-1500
edited by Patricia Blessing and Rachel Goshgarian
Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press, [2017]
Anatolia was home to a large number of polities in the medieval period. Given its location at the geographical and chronological juncture between Byzantines and the Ottomans, its story tends to be read through the Seljuk experience. This obscures the multiple experiences and spaces of Anatolia under the Byzantine empire, Turko-Muslim dynasties contemporary to the Seljuks, the Mongol llkhanids, and the various beyliks of eastern and western Anatolia. This book looks beyond political structures and towards a reconsideration of the interactions between the rural and the urban; an analysis of the relationships between architecture, culture and power; and an examination of the region's multiple geographies. In order to expand historiographical perspectives it draws on a wide variety of sources (architectural, artistic, documentary and literary), including texts composed in several languages (Arabic, Armenian, Byzantine Greek, Persian and Turkish).

Higher states : Lawren Harris and his American contemporaries
Nasgaard, Roald, author
Fredericton, New Brunswick : Goose Lane Editions ; [2017]
"Lawren S. Harris is best known for his iconic landscape paintings that declare a sense of cool Canadian resilience. Yet, in the 1920s, an audacious and more colourful interior world began to emerge in his work, and by 1934, he had taken a seemingly unexpected turn toward a transnational career in abstract painting. The social, intellectual, and aesthetic milieu of American transcendentalism shaped a movement of abstract art across North America. Inspired by the ideas of Kandinsky and informed by the writings of Emerson and Whitman, Harris and his North American contemporaries - Georgia O'Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, Katherine Dreier, Raymond Jonson - turned to abstraction to express higher states of consciousness. As Harris's career progressed, as he ascended from mountain tops to inner states of mind, he sought greater and more ethereal spiritual heights. This magnificent volume features reproductions of more than 75 paintings by Harris and his contemporaries. Essays by Roald Nasgaard and Gwendolyn Owens investigate Lawren Harris's exploration of modernity and the evolution of his work towards a form of abstraction that enthusiastically embraced the energies of the ambient visual culture."--

Chandigarh revealed : Le Corbusier's city today
Fynn, Shaun, photographer,
New York : Princeton Architectural Press, 2017
"In 1950, Indian prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru invited legendary French-Swiss architect Le Corbusier to embark on one of the greatest experiments in urban planning history: to build on the flat plains of Punjab a new capital--Chandigarh, a city whose monumental modernism promised to free India from the fetters of colonial tradition and lay the groundwork for an independent and utopian future. Nicknamed the City Beautiful, Chandigarh has been called one of "the perfect cities of the world in terms of architecture, cultural growth, and modernization," and in 2016 was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Six decades after its founding, photographer and Chandigarh resident Shaun Fynn was granted unprecedented access to turn his lens on Le Corbusier's city and capture what is rarely seen: the living metropolis behind the master plan. Fynn's captivating images of the city and its inhabitants observe how the poetry of the architect's compositions have been shaped by the tumult of everyday life and worn by the forces of time. Chandigarh Revealed combines striking photographs, texts by Le Corbusier authorities, an interview with one of the last remaining architects from Le Corbusier's team, and custom-designed maps to create an astonishing and intimate portrait of a legendary city"--

Dubbed "Robert des ruines" by the great critic and encyclopedist Denis Diderot, Robert was regarded during his era as one of France's most prominent artists. His reputation has endured, but this monographic exhibition, coorganized by the National Gallery of Art and the Musée du Louvre, is the first to encompass his entire career and to survey his achievements as both a painter and a draftsman.

Piet Mondriaan : the man who changed everything
texts, Hans Janssen, Benno Tempel, Lieke Wijnia
Zwolle : Waanders Uitgevers ; [2017]
Weinig kunstenaars hebben zichzelf zo vaak opnieuw uitgevonden als Piet Mondriaan (1872-1944). Van realistische landschappen tot aan zijn wereldberoemde geometrische abstractie, volbracht Mondriaan een ware ontdekkingstocht door de moderne kunst. Met een onbegrensde nieuwsgierigheid naar het nieuwe, omarmde hij het dynamische leven in Amsterdam, Parijs, Londen en New York en vertaalde dit in zijn schilderijen. Dit nieuwe boek volgt Mondriaans leven en werk aan de hand van de Mondriaancollectie van het Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. Met ruim 300 werken is dit de grootste collectie ter wereld, die iedere fase van Mondriaans indrukwekkende loopbaan bestrijkt. Van de vroege avontuurlijke landschappen die hij schildert in en om Amsterdam en Domburg, langs de fundamentele abstractie die hij ontdekt in Laren en Parijs, helemaal tot aan New York waar hij een radicaal nieuw ritme ontdekt dat zijn laatste meesterwerk Victory Boogie Woogie (1942-1944) definieert. Deze rijk geïllustreerde publicatie laat u kennismaken met een van de modernste kunstenaars van de twintigste eeuw.

Basic human anatomy : an essential visual guide for artists
Osti, Roberto, author
New York, New York : Monacelli Studio, [2016]
Basic Human Anatomy teaches artists the simple yet powerful formula artists have used for centuries to draw the human figure from the inside out. Osti, using the basic system of line, shape, and form used by da Vinci, Raphael, and Michelangelo, takes readers step-by-step through all the lessons needed in order to master this essential foundation skill. Organized progressively, the book shows readers how to replicate the underlying structure of the body using easy-to-understand scales and ratios; conceptualize the front and side views of the skeleton with basic shapes; add detail with simplified depictions of complex bones and joints; draw a muscle map of the body with volumetric form and realistic dimension; master the feet, hands, and skull to create realistic renderings of the human form; and apply a deeper knowledge of anatomy to finished drawings for more impact.

Building histories : the archival and affective lives of five monuments in modern Delhi
Rajagopalan, Mrinalini, author
Chicago ; The University of Chicago Press, [2016]
Building Histories" offers innovative accounts of five medieval monuments in Delhi the Red Fort, Rasul Numa dargah, Jama Masjid, Purana Qila, and Qutb complex tracing their modern lives from the nineteenth century into the twentieth.?Mrinalini Rajagopalan argues that the modern construction of the history of these monuments entailed the careful selection, manipulation, and regulation of the past by both the colonial and later postcolonial states. Although framed as objective "archival" truths, these histories were meant to erase or marginalize the powerful and persistent affective appropriations of the monuments by groups who often existed outside of the center of power. By analyzing these archival and affective histories together, Rajagopalan works to redefine the historic monument far from a symbol of a specific past, the monument is shown in Building Histories to be a culturally mutable object with multiple stories to tell.

Hirst plays with the concept of scale and perception in an Alice in Wonderland-esque playground. Oversized versions of syringes, ampoules, pharmaceutical boxes, a scalpel and drug packaging reach up to the spectators at nearly one and a half metres tall. This clinical visual exploration into the mind of Hirst reveals an ornate analysis of his concept, looking into the aesthetic values of the pharmaceutical industry and the contemporary belief systems of religion, love, art and medicine.

Philippe Parreno : anywhen
Parreno, Philippe, 1964- artist,
London : Tate Publishing, 2016
Philippe Parreno is a leading French artist who works across film, video, sound, sculpture, performance and information technology. His work explores the borders between reality and fiction, and he sees his exhibitions as choreographed spaces that follow a score, during which a series of different events unfold. These kaleidoscopic environments redefine the gallery-going experience. Having collaborated with many visual artists as well as musicians, architects, scientists and writers, Parreno continues the tradition of the avant-garde artist engaged with many cultural disciplines. Created in collaboration with the artist, the book features a fully illustrated survey of Parreno's life and work and an interview with curator Andrea Lissoni. Exploring the artistic processes involved in creating his work, it includes photographs of Parreno's new installation that is exhibited in the Turbine Hall for this exhibition.

In de praktijk : Vlaamse wandtapijten in 50 verhalen
Brosens, Koenraad, author
Leuven : Davidsfonds Uitgeverij, [2016]
Vlaamse wandtapijten genoten de voorbije decennia veel kunsthistorische aandacht. Illustere bisschoppen, keizers, koningen en pausen werden ontmaskerd als gulzige verzamelaars van wandtapijtreeksen. Maar al deze aandacht voor verzamelaars en kunstenaars overstemt het echte kloppende hart van de Vlaamse wandtapijtnijverheid in Antwerpen en Brussel van de zeventiende en achttiende eeuw. Dit boek zoemt in op de voorovergebogen tapissiersgasten die de visie van de kunstenaars vertaalden in wol, zijde, goud- en zilverdraad. De auteurs gaan op zoek naar de pittige verhalen van handelaars die de Europese markten bespeelden. De hoofdrolspelers in de verhalen kennen problemen of successen. Ze zijn gehaaid of naïef, strijdbaar of verslagen. Ze worstelen met de impact van verdampend of reeds verdampt vertrouwen. Hun verhalen bieden zo een bijzondere inkijk in hun biotoop, en dus ook in de sociale en economische realiteit achter het Vlaamse wandtapijt. Het is een harde werkelijkheid, vol ambities, dromen, geluk, plannen, pogingen en verdriet. Het is een onzichtbare werkelijkheid die, hoewel eeuwenoud, vaak heel herkenbaar is.

The figurative artist's handbook : a contemporary guide to figure drawing, painting, and composition
Zeller, Robert, 1966- author
New York, New York : Monacelli Studio, [2016]
Mastering the figure is an essential tool for any serious visual artist. At a time when renewed interest in figurative art is surging throughout the art world, author Robert Zeller presents The Figurative Artist s Handbook the first comprehensive guide to figure drawing and painting to appear in decades. Illustrated with Zeller s own exquisite drawings and paintings as well as works by nearly 100 historical and contemporary figurative art masters, the handbook is also a treasure trove of the finest figurative art of the past and the present day. Included are Andrew Wyeth, John Currin, Lucian Freud, Eric Fischl, Andrew Loomis, Edward Hopper, Steven Assael, Bo Bartlett, Pieter Brueghel the Elder, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Gustav Klimt, Odd Nerdrum, Peter Paul Rubens, and many others. Fresh and thoroughly modern in his approach, Zeller brings together three figure-drawing methods long thought to be at odds, synthesizing these seemingly incompatible techniques to achieve a cohesive and complete understanding of the human figure. Although all three methods underlie contemporary fine-arts practice and education, no artist s handbook has ever combined them before: The Study of Gesture (Disegno): Rooted in the Italian Mannerist style of the 16th and 17th centuries, the gestural method emphasizes life, rhythm, and movement in the human body. The Structural Approach: A mainstay of 20th- and 21st-century art instruction, this method applies an architectural perspective to the body, using a block conception for anatomically sound, solid figures. The Atelier Method: Based on the training provided by 18th- and 19th-century art academies, the atelier approach creates sensual, smooth renderings based on meticulous study of the figure s surface morphology in light and shadow. Covering all the basics as well as many advanced techniques, The Figurative Artist s Handbook is aimed at both students and experienced artists. A practical, how-to guide, it provides in-depth step-by-step instruction and rare among figure-drawing books features sections on composition, portraiture, and painting. Chapters on creativity and on using a sketchbook help readers hone their artistic vision and evolve ideas from the initial inspiration to the fully developed work. Also included is an extensive section highlighting the great movements in figurative art throughout history from ancient Egypt and Greece to the present.

Wyatt ; The image of the Black in Japanese art : from the beginnings to 1850 / Timon Screech ; The image of the Black in Japanese art : nineteenth century to the present day / Alicia Volk.

The book moves beyond the "West", that is to say Europe, the Americas and the Caribbean, to consider the art of Africa and the world to the east, to represent and place in historical context images of people of sub-Saharan African descent. The question remains: what does it mean for an artist of African descent to make an image of him or herself, or another person of African descent, as opposed to an image of a Black person created by an artist who is not Black? This vexed question has been at the heart of debates about "identity politics" for a very long time. In other words, in collecting images of Black subjects created by Black artists, whether from Africa or the African diaspora, we are not making epistemological or ontological claims about a work of art's so-called "authenticity," nor of its artistic quality. We simply see these works as their own canon, as another way of organizing viewing and explicating images of the Black subject in art, one related to Euro-American traditions of representation, but simultaneously with an order and history of their own as well, in the same way that a novel, let's say, by Toni Morrison exists simultaneously in the canon of American literature and of African American literature, among other literary traditions.--

The discovery of Mumuye art / Frank Herreman and Constantine Petridis -- Mumuye: a succinct ethnography / Frank Herreman -- Vertical and horizontal Mumuye masks: masquerades for initiations, agricultural celebrations, funerary ceremonies, and other purposes / Constantine Petridis -- The morphology of Mumuye figures: a stunning diversity of styles and a multitude of unidentified masters / Frank Herreman -- Mumuye figures in context: a bewildering constellation of meanings and functions / Constantine Petridis.

Through 41 masterworks, Mumuye Sculpture from Nigeria reveals some of the most accomplished statues made by this Nigerian tribal group. The Mumuye artists' abstract interpretation of the human body, which recalls that of cubist and expressionist artists, has been immensely appealing to African art enthusiasts. Their anthropomorphic figures demonstrate an astonishing range of variations, testifying to their makers' unbridled creativity and limitless inventiveness. Here, a meticulous analysis of the extraordinary forms of Mumuye figure - paying attention to their striking sense of motion - recognizes different workshops and even the hands of individual masters. A summary of the scant field-based studies discusses the figures' primary role as emblems of status and rank, their connections to ancestral veneration, and healing and divination practices. Though a selection of masks and other objects, this book reveals the beauty of Mumuye figurative sculpture.

Artists and migration 1400-1850 : Britain, Europe and beyond
edited by Kathrin Wagner, Jessica David and Matej Klemenčič
Newcastle upon Tyne : Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2017
This volume offers a thematic exploration of the migrant artist's experience in Europe and its colonies from the early modern period through to the Industrial Revolution. The influence of the transient artist, both on their adoptive country as well as their own oeuvre and native culture, is considered through a collection of essays arranged according to geographic location. The contributions here examine the impetuses behind artistic migrations and the status of the foreign artist at home and abroad through the patterns of patronage, contemporary responses to their work and the preservation of their artistic legacy in domestic and foreign settings. Objects and sites from across the visual arts are considered as evidence of the migrant artist's experience; talismans of cultural exchange that yielded hybrid artistic styles and disseminated foreign tastes and workshop practices across the globe.

Irish fine art in the early modern period : new perspectives on artistic practice, 1620-1820
edited by Jane Fenlon, Ruth Kenny, Caroline Pegum, Brendan Rooney
Newbridge, County Kildare : Irish Academic Press, 2016
This richly illustrated book presents the latest research into Irish fine art from the 17th and 18th centuries. It is comprised of a rich selection of case studies into artistic practice that showcase the burgeoning nature of fine art media in Ireland, the quality of production, and the breadth of patronage. Investigating these signifiers of a 'cultured' lifestyle - their production, consumption, appreciation, display, and discourse - provides fascinating insights into the sensibility of Ireland's minority-rule elites, and the practitioners it fostered. Featuring contributions from emergent and established art historians, 'Irish Fine Art in the Early Modern Period' takes its subject matter beyond the realms of academic journals, exhibitions and conferences, and presents it within a lavishly designed and vital publication that presents substantial new insights into Ireland's artistic and social history.

He taught at the Bombay School of Art and later was appointed principal of the new Mayo School of Art (today Pakistan's National College of Art and Design) as well as curator of its museum in Lahore. Over several years, Kipling toured the northern provinces of India, documenting the processes of local craftsmen, a cultural preservation project that provides a unique record of 19th-century Indian craft customs. This is the first book to explore the full spectrum of artistic, pedagogical, and archival achievements of this fascinating man of letters, demonstrating the sincerity of his work as an artist, teacher, administrator, and activist"--
