Transatlantic encounters : Latin American artists in Paris between the wars
Greet, Michele, 1970- author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2018]
Paris was the artistic capital of the world in the 1920s and '30s, providing a home and community for the French and international avant-garde. Latin American artists contributed to and reinterpreted nearly every major modernist movement that took place in the creative center of Paris between World War I and World War II, including Cubism (Diego Rivera), Surrealism (Antonio Berni and Roberto Matta), and Constructivism (Joaquin Torres-Garcia). Yet their participation in the Paris art scene has remained largely overlooked until now. This book examines their collective role, surveying the work of both household names and an extraordinary array of lesser-known artists. Michele Greet illuminates the significant ways in which Latin American expatriates helped establish modernism and, conversely, how a Parisian environment influenced the development of Latin American artistic identity.

Art museums of Latin America : structuring representation
edited by Michele Greet and Gina McDaniel Tarver
London : Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
"Since the late nineteenth century, art museums have played crucial social, political, and economic roles throughout Latin America because of the ways that they structure representation. By means of their architecture, collections, exhibitions, and curatorial practices, Latin American art museums have crafted representations of communities, including nation states, and promoted particular group ideologies. This collection of essays, arranged in thematic sections, will examine the varying and complex functions of art museums in Latin America: as nation-building institutions and instruments of state cultural politics; as foci for the promotion of Latin American modernities and modernisms; as sites of mediation between local and international, private and public interests; as organizations that negotiate cultural construction within the Latin American diaspora and shape constructs of Latin America and its nations; and as venues for the contestation of elitist and Eurocentric notions of culture and the realization of cultural diversity rooted in multiethnic environments."--

The Sanctuary of Athena at Sounion
Barletta, Barbara A., author
Princeton : American School of Classical Studies at Athens, [2017]
Investigations in the Sanctuary of Athena -- The Small Temple in the Sanctuary of Athena -- The Temple of Athena : Description and Reconstruction -- The Temple of Athena in Context -- Afterlife of the Temple of Athena -- Conclusions.

The Temple of Athena at Sounion is one of the more unusual examples of Greek architecture. It was constructed with colonnades on only two - but adjacent - sides, and in the Ionic order characteristic of the Aegean Islands even though it was built in Attica. When the temple was excavated at the turn of the 19th to 20th centuries, little was found on site. Instead, subsequent excavations in the Athenian Agora recovered many of the missing building members, which had been reused in a Roman-period temple. A new study of the temple, including the material from Athens, was initiated by H.A. Thompson and W.B. Dinsmoor Jr. but was never completed. The current book builds on their work to provide for the first time a comprehensive view of the temple and its sanctuary.

"Originating as a rebellious movement in philosophy and literature, Postmodernism proclaimed the death of modernism and promoted a new, nonlinear way of approaching architecture and design, spearheaded by Michael Graves, Robert Venturi, Ettore Sottsass, and Alessandro Mendini. It became a style in itself and the defining look of the 1980s. 'Postmodern Design Complete' is the comprehensive reference to this period of vibrant design, as it profiles key creators including Graves, Mendini, Sottsass, Venturi, Charles Jencks, and Denise Scott Brown and covers the fields of architecture, furniture, graphic design, textiles, and product and industrial design. A section on Living with Postmodernism presents fifteen seminal homes and their furnishings; and a final section titled Postmodernism Continues is a comprehensive overview of contemporary makers. Highly informed and accessible texts are illustrated by more than 1,000 images that bring together classics and little-seen rarities, unusual objets d'art, and mass-produced items. This definitive volume also includes a foreword by Charles Jencks and an afterword by Denise Scott Brown, followed by a substantial reference section." -- Publisher's description

The history of Venetian Renaissance sculpture, ca. 1400-1530
Schulz, Anne Markham, 1938- author
London : Harvey Miller Publishers, [2017]
volume I. Text and comparative illustrations -- volume II. Illustrations.

As the first comprehensive treatment of Venetian sculpture of the early Renaissance in nearly a century, this book examines the documents, literary sources, and oeuvre of all Venetian sculptors in stone, bronze, and wood between the decoration of the crowning of San Marco at the beginning of the fifteenth century and the artistic revolution wrought by Jacopo Sansovino from ca. 1530 on. Its text pays particular attention to the style of individual works, to their physical and artistic context, their sources and their influence, and synthesizes forty-five years of attentive looking, of research in archives and libraries of the Veneto, and hundreds of photographic campaigns throughout Italy and as far afield as Croatia and Poland - many from specially mounted scaffolds. The introduction treats general questions of material, purpose, patronage, the origin of sculptors, their workshop practices and the structure of guilds, while the conclusion considers ways in which Venetian sculpture was unique. There is no aspect of the subject to which the author has not contributed major discoveries and her book, with its 800 illustrations, should constitute a work of reference long into the future.

Slavs and Tatars
edited by Pablo Larios
London : Koenig Books, [2017]
Defining an area 'east of the former Berlin Wall and west of the Great Wall of China' as their remit, Slavs and Tatars repeatedly creolize, craft and collide a political and imagined geography to topple our brittle notions of identity, language, and beliefs.0Throughout their 10 year practice, the artist collective has turned to Turkic language politics, medieval advice literature, the relationship between Iran and Poland, and transliteration, to name but a few of their areas of research. The artists' work (from sculptures to lecture performances, installations to publications) similarly overturn the traditional hierarchies of understanding, seeing, and listening. Slavs and Tatars aim to free knowledge from the Enlightenment confines of the mind.00Exhibition: Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw, Poland (Nov 2016 - Feb 2017) / Pejman Foundation, Tehran, Iran (Apr 2017) / Salt Galata, Istanbul, Turkey (Jun 2017) / CAC Vilnius, Lithuania (Sep 2017) / Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade, Serbia (Nov 2017) / Albertinum, Dresden, Germany (Winter 2017-2018).

Generation loss : 10 years Julia Stoschek Collection
Herausgeber = publisher: Julia Stoschek Foundation e.V. ; Autoren = authors: Ed Atkins, Monika Kerkmann, Julia Stoschek, Andreas Weisser ; Übersetzungen = translations: Amy Klement, Kurt Rehkopf, Alexandra Titze-Grabec
Bielefeld, Germany : Kerber, [2017]
On the occasion of the ten-year anniversary of the Julia Stoschek Collection, the British artist Ed Atkins has conceived the exhibition 'Generation Loss'. The term means first and foremost the process of data quality deterioration that results from changing technologies. This loss of quality, at the same time, also materializes in an ideological sense in the social change from one generation to the next. The catalogue takes up this question and addresses how the reception of the moving image has changed from the nineteen-seventies until today. In addition to video and film stills, the catalogue also includes historical material about the works presented as well as installation views of the exhibition.00Exhibition: Julia Stoschek Collection, Düsseldorf, Germany (10.07.2017-10.07.2018).

Art, commerce and colonialism, 1600-1800
edited by Emma Barker
Milton Keynes : in association with The Open University, 2017
The book examines how increasing engagement with the rest of the world transformed European art, architecture and design. It considers how commercial activity and colonial ventures gave rise to new and diverse forms of visual and material culture across the globe. Drawing on a wide range of recent scholarship, it offers a new perspective that challenges Eurocentric approaches.

Why science needs art : from historical to modern day perspectives
Roche, Richard, author
London : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Why Science Needs Art explores the complex relationship between these seemingly polarised fields. Reflecting on a time when art and science were considered inseparable and symbiotic pursuits, the book discusses how they have historically informed and influenced each other, before considering how public perception of the relationship between these disciplines has fundamentally changed. Science and art have something very important in common: they both seek to reduce something infinitely complex to something simpler. Using examples from diverse areas including microscopy, brain injury, classical art, and data visualization, the book delves into the history of the intersection of these two disciplines, before considering current tensions between the fields. The emerging field of neuroaesthetics and its attempts to scientifically understand what humans find beautiful is also explored, suggesting ways in which the relationship between art and science may return to a more co-operative state in the future. Why Science Needs Art provides an essential insight into the relationship between art and science in an appealing and relevant way. Featuring colorful examples throughout, the book will be of interest to students and researchers of neuroaesthetics and visual perception, as well as all those wanting to discover more about the complex and exciting intersection of art and science. --

Worldmaking as techné : participatory art, music, and architecture
edited by Mark-David Hosale, Sana Murrani, and Alberto de Campo ; with a foreword by Roy Ascott
[Cambridge, Ontario?] : Riverside Architectural Press, [2018]
"Worldmaking as Techné: Participatory Art, Music, and Architecture attempts to outline a practice that challenges the World and how it could be through a kind of future-making, and/or other world making, by creating alternate realities as artworks that are simultaneously ontological propositions. In simplified terms the concept of techné is concerned with the art and craft of making. In particular a kind of practice that embodies the enactment of theoretical approach that helps determine the significance of the work, how it was made, and why. By positioning worldmaking as a kind of techné, we seek to create a discourse of art making as an enframing of the world that results in the expression of ontological propositions through the creation of art-worlds."--

Hands on : Locati Architects
foreword: Jonathan Foote ; introduction: Jerry Locati ; writer: Seabring Davis ; illustrator: Rob Petrie
[Novato, Calif?] : Oro Editions, [2018]
Locati Architects & Interiors was founded in 1989 by its principal, Jerry Locati, in Bozeman, Montana. With the belief that quality architectural design improves lives and brings people together, each project is an opportunity to create a gathering place, a community gateway and a connection to the landscape. With decades of experience in designing high-end residential, commercial, and resort architecture, and incorporating innovative products with classic style, Locati aspires to deliver architecture as a connective art form. The result is a body of work that is more than wood, stone, glass, and metal, more than a collection of structures. Locati buildings are a means of connecting people to place. With the intention that every building should enhance the personal experience of the landscape, Locati Architects designs dream homes throughout the Western United States, homes that bring both detail and definition to the natural world.

Ideal homes, 1918-39 : domestic design and suburban modernism
Ryan, Deborah S., author
Manchester : Manchester University Press, 2018
1. The interwar house: ideal homes and domestic design -- 2. Suburban: class, gender and home ownership -- 3. Modernisms: 'good design' and 'bad design' -- 4. Efficiency: labour-saving and the professional housewife -- 5. Nostalgia: the Tudorbethan semi and the detritus of Empire -- 6. Afterword: modernising the interwar ideal home.

This book focuses on the housebuilding boom of the interwar years, when Britain became a nation of homeowners. It investigates the ways in which ordinary people expressed new class and gender identities through the design, architecture and decoration of interwar homes then and now. It argues that these 'ideal' homes combine nostalgia for the past and longing for the future resulting in a new specifically suburban modernism.

Imminent commons : the expanded city
edited by Alejandro Zaera-Polo and Jeffrey S. Anderson ; Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism 2017
Seoul : Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism, [2017]
"As the second book of the Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism 2017, it presents contemporary urbanism thoughts on nine imminent commons, which engage collective ecological and technological resources relevant to all cities and even extra-urban territories. Recent years have seen greatly increased political opposition between urban and rural areas, bordering on crisis. In order to avoid further aggravating this urban/rural polarization, we need to cultivate a discourse on urbanism that focuses on the interdependencies between cities and the greater ecologies of resources, technologies, and natural processes in which they are situated. The way we think about cities needs to expand significantly to incorporate their effects on global natural cycles, how they metabolize resources from rural areas, and their impact on both local and regional economies"--Provided by publisher.

Kaprow, Allan, artist

Allan Kaprow (1927-2006) founded the art form of the happening at the end of the 1950s. His environments are considered as milestones in recent art history. However, he began his artistic career as a painter. This publication focuses for the first time on the paintings created between 1946 and 1957. The pictorial spaces are burst open. In the rhythmically charged works, particularly in the action collages, the canvas becomes a combat zone. In hindsight, it seems clear that the happenings and environments were only a step away...

Innovative apartment buildings : new directions in sustainable design
Friedman, Avi, 1952-
Stuttgart : Edition Axel Menges, [2017]
Current design of apartment buildings is facing challenges of philosophy and form. Past approaches no longer sustain new demands and require innovative thinking. The need for a new outlook is propelled by fundamental changes that touch upon environmental, economic, cultural and social aspects that led to the writing of this book. The depletion of non-renewable natural resources and climate change are a few of the environmental challenges that prompted designers to reconsider conceptual approaches in favour of ones that promote a better suitability between buildings and their environments.

Charles I : King and collector
exhibition curators, Per Rumberg, Desmond Shawe-Taylor ; assisted by Lucy Chiswell, Niko Munz
London : Royal Academy of Arts, [2018]
During his reign, King Charles I (1600-1649) assembled one of Europe's most extraordinary art collections. Indeed, by the time of his death, it contained some 2,000 paintings and sculptures. 'Charles I: King and Collector' explores the origins of the collection, the way it was assembled and what it came to represent. Authoritative essays provide a revealing historical context for the formation of the King's taste. They analyse key areas of the collection, such as the Italian Renaissance, and how the paintings that Charles collected influenced the contemporary artists he commissioned. Following Charles's execution, his collection was sold. This book, which accompanies the exhibition, reunites its most important works in sumptuous detail. Featuring paintings by such masters as Van Dyck, Rubens and Raphael, this striking publication offers a unique insight into this fabled collection.

Zoë Ryan and Max Lamb ; with Ryan Gander
Chicago, Illinois : The Art Institute of Chicago, [2018]
Works and images / Max Lamb -- Max Lamb : serial producer / Zoë Ryan -- A conversation / Ryan Gander and Max Lamb.

"One of the most exciting designers working today, Max Lamb (b. 1980) has received international acclaim for his innovative experiments with materials, craft, and technology. Drawn to the form of the chair and its relationship to the human body, Lamb has explored many different inventive outcomes in his ever-evolving Exercises in Seating project. This book investigates over a decade of creative practice with a focus on his interest in seating--from stone thrones to wood chairs and enameled-steel stools. In Lamb's own words, "A seat is very simple in function, but very complex in the many different characters, forms, and ideas it can express." Both retrospective and forward looking, this volume--created in collaboration with the artist--is the most thorough investigation of Lamb's work to date and features an exclusive interview with noted artist Ryan Gander in which the designer discusses his creative processes and goals"--

Set in stone : lithography in Paris, 1815-1900
Giviskos, Christine, author
New Brunswick, New Jersey : Zimmerli Art Museum, Rutgers University, [2018]
Known for its collection of French prints and posters, the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University has rich holdings of lithographs made over the course of the 1800s, including examples from lithography?s early years in Paris to iconic color posters from the 1890s. Invented around 1796, lithography introduced a new process and new opportunities for the creation and circulation of printed images. Artists, printers, and publishers embraced the new medium for its relative ease and economic advantages as compared with the established printmaking media of woodcut, engraving, and etching. Taking root in Paris around 1815 after the fall of Napoleon?s empire, the art and industry of lithography grew in tandem with the city, as it became Europe?s artistic and urban capital over the course of the nineteenth century. Lithographs played a distinct role in both documenting and advancing (and often satirizing) the various and competing art movements of the period as publishers responded to the unprecedented demand for printed images of all types.00Exhibition: Zimmerli Art Museum/Rutgers University, New Brunswick, USA (20.1. - 29.7.2018).

Leonardo da Vinci and The Virgin of the Rocks : one painter, two virgins, twenty-five years
Blatt, Katy, author
Newcastle upon Tyne, UK : Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2018
This is the first book dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci's commission for 'The Virgin of the Rocks.' Leonardo completed fewer than 20 paintings in his lifetime, yet he returned twice to this same mysterious subject over the course of a 25 year period. Identical in terms of iconography, stylistically these paintings are worlds apart. The first, of c.1482-4, was Leonardo's magnum opus, catapulting the young artist from obscurity to fame. When, in 1508, he finished the second painting, he was nearing the end of his artistic career and had become an international celebrity. Why did he revisit 'The Virgin of the Rocks?' What was the meaning behind the cavernous subterranean landscape? What lies behind the colder monumentality of the second version?

Rasheed Araeen
edited by Nick Aikens
Eindhoven : Van Abbemuseum, [2017]
Spanning 60 years, this publication surveys the art, editing and curating activities of London-based, Pakistani-born artist Rasheed Araeen (born 1935) for the first time, presenting an expansive artistic practice that has had a profound influence on generations of artists, writers and thinkers. Whether as a pioneer of Minimalist sculpture, a publisher of magazines at the forefront of postcolonial thinking like Third Text (founded 1987) or as an abstract painter drawing inspiration from the art of the Abbasid period, Araeen has consistently sought to realign the understanding of Modernism imposed by the hegemonic discourses of the West.0Bringing together newly commissioned essays by leading art critics and historians, documentation from the artist?s archive as well as an extensive survey of Araeen?s work, this publication offers the opportunity?long overdue?to assess Araeen?s impact as an artist and thinker.

Artemisia Gentileschi in a changing light
edited by Sheila Barker
Turnhout : Harvey Miller Publishers, [2017]
"Raised to the status of an international luminary by her contemporaries and now revered as one of the defining talents of the seventeenth century, Artemisia Gentileschi poses urgent questions for today's scholars. The recent outpouring of new attributions and archival discoveries has profoundly enriched our knowledge of the artist, but it has also complicated, and somewhat contradicted, the former storyline. If she was illiterate and unschooled, how did she befriend Galileo and playwrights Jacopo Cicognini and Michelangelo Buonarroti il Giovane? If she could not pay her bills, why did she continue to spend lavishly on clothing and domestic servants? How do we identify new autograph works if experts still disagree about the chronology and contours of her oeuvre? In these eleven essays, an international assembly of experts grapples with these problems, opening new paths of inquiry and laying bare their methodologies in fields as diverse as laboratory analysis, economic and cultural history, literary analysis, and feminist art history. Among these approaches, connoisseurship takes center stage. By reconstructing the chronology and rationale of Artemisia's artistic progression, connoissership reveals the intricacy of her visual dialogues with prominent contemporaries like Caravaggio, Annibale Caracci, Simon Vouet and Stanzione, and with past artistic giants like Donatello and Michelangelo. These essays infuse our understanding of Artemisia with complexity and nuance, yet they also confirm the characteristic mix of intelligence and verve that marked her art, her correspondence, and her deft social maneuvering runnling like a thread through all stages of her fascinating life"--Jacket.

Amazonistas: artes visuales sobre la Amazonía Peruana en el siglo XXI / Christian Bendayán -- Elena Valera -- Armando Williams -- Nancy Larosa -- Musuk Nolte -- Kylla Piqueras -- Remberya Huarcani -- Eduardo Hirose -- Graciela Arias -- Francesco Mariotti -- Adrián Portugal -- Natalia Revilla -- Antonio Garcia -- Enrique Casanto -- Ana Cecilia González-Vigil -- Javier Silva-Meinel -- Morfi Jiménez -- Lastenia Canayo -- Rodrigo Rodrich -- Silvana Pestana -- Roberto Huarcaya -- Diana Riesco-Lind Harry Chávez -- Thomas Locke Hobbs -- Amazonistas: Visual Arts on the Peruvian Amazon in the XXI century / Christian Bendayán.

Christian Bendayán (Peru 1973) is a legend on the contemporary Peruvian art scene. Born in the jungle city of Iquitos, he is the founder of the current Amazonistas movement (numbering over 200 artists). The book comprises the work, testimonies and reflections of 23 amazonista artists, interviewed by Bendayan and author Giuliana Vidarte. "Never before the Amazon has been represented so strongly in the artistic production of the country. If I'm not mistaken, about half of the Peruvian artists have joined the Amazon imagery and its productionʺ. Thus, unlike the current indigenous movement that marked the Peruvian culture at the beginning of the 1930œs, the amazonismoʺ movement does not intend to stay in a Peruvian Pre-Hispanic heritage celebration nor is a visual reinterpretation of the intellectual, artistic elites of diverse origins.

Basquiat first came to prominence when he collaborated with Al Diaz to spray-paint enigmatic statements under the pseudonym SAMO©. He went on to work on collages, Xerox art, postcards, performances, and music before establishing his reputation as one of the most important painters of his generation. Accompanying a major exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery, this book opens with introductory essays from the curators, which place his practice in a wider art historical context and look at his career through the lens of performance. This insightful new survey also features extended captions, rare archival material, and extensive photography, demonstrating how Basquiat's legacy remains more powerful and relevant than ever today.

Willi Baumeister, 1889-1955 : creator from the unknown
Pedde, Brigitte, author
[Berlin] : published by Epubli GmbH, [2014]
"Willi Baumeister (1889-1955) is one of Modernism's most significant artist. A central theme in his work was the search for universal reference points and the sources of artistic creation: Creativity as a never-ending process of discovery. As a painter and art professor, Baumeister campaigned for open artistic exchange. With the present volume, the Willi Baumeister Stiftung is striking out in a new direction. For the first time ever, an introduction to the work of a seminal artist of the modern age is freely available on the Internet as a high-quality open access art book"--Back cover.

Riflessioni : Rosemarie Trockel e le collezioni torinesi = Reflections : Rosemarie Trockel and works from Turin collections
Trockel, Rosemarie, 1952- artist
Mantova : Corraini edizioni, [2017]
Reflections links a selection of works from Turin art museums to the oeuvre of German artist Rosemarie Trockel. The artworks were chosen by the artist together with curator Paolo Colombo, allowing an entirely new itinerary to unfold that stems from two motifs important to her own body of work: the portrait and ceramics. With allusions to 'high' and 'low' culture, Trockel reflects upon the human condition, as well as the artist's role in a complex and multi-layered social representation of the individual. This catalogue accompanies a presentation of works at the Pinacoteca Agnelli gallery in Turin.

Francesco Trombadori : l'essenziale verità delle cose

È una considerazione di Francesco Trombadori che, chiarendone le aspirazioni e il coerente percorso pittorico, ha ispirato il titolo di questa mostra antologica di largo respiro, un'occasione per raccontare il rapporto del pittore con i luoghi di Roma che amò e dipinse, scegliendoli come patria elettiva sin dai primi anni del Novecento. Alla Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Roma, dal 13 ottobre 2017 all'11 febbraio 2018, sono esposte sessanta tele, dipinte tra il 1915 e il 1961, provenienti da importanti collezioni pubbliche e private di tutta Italia, venticinque disegni, libri, cataloghi di mostre e articoli di giornale provenienti dall'Archivio dell'artista, custodito nel suo studio a Villa Strohl-Fern. La mostra, promossa da Roma Capitale, Assessorato alla Crescita culturale - Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali, è a cura di Giovanna Caterina De Feo dell'Associazione Amici di Villa Strohl-Fern e della Sovrintendenza Capitolina. Organizzazione di Zètema Progetto Cultura. Catalogo Maretti Editore.0Pur non essendo romano di nascita, per Francesco Trombadori la capitale è fonte di ispirazione per molti dipinti, ma soprattutto luogo di aggregazione in cui insieme a scrittori, critici ed artisti partecipare all'intenso dibattito artistico e culturale, dando impulso alla creazione di mostre d'arte e a riviste d'arte e di cultura. Il pittore prende parte attiva al dibattito artistico nazionale sin dagli esordi nel vivace ambiente della cosiddetta Terza Saletta del Caffè Aragno, nel primo decennio del XX secolo, dove l'artista si avvicina al formativo ambiente de "Il Convito", la rivista d'arte e letteratura fondata da Adolfo De Bosis con Gabriele d'Annunzio e Angelo Conti. Exhibition: Galleria d'Arte Moderna, Rome, Italy (13.10.2017- 11.02.2018). = It is a consideration of Francesco Trombadori who, clarifying the aspirations and the coherent pictorial path, inspired the title of this broad anthological exhibition, an opportunity to recount the painter's relationship with the places of Rome he loved and painted, choosing them as Elective homeland since the early twentieth century. At the Gallery of Modern Art in Rome, from 13 October 2017 to 11 February 2018, sixty paintings, painted between 1915 and 1961, are exhibited, coming from important public and private collections of all Italy, twenty-five drawings, books, exhibition catalogs and newspaper articles from the artist's archive, kept in his studio at Villa Strohl-Fern.

Organization of Zètema Progetto Cultura. Catalog Maretti Editore. Pur is not Roman by birth, for Francesco Trombadori the capital is a source of inspiration for many paintings, but above all a place of aggregation in which together with writers, critics and artists participate in the intense artistic and cultural debate, giving impetus to the creation of art exhibitions and art and culture magazines. The painter took an active part in the national artistic debate from the beginning in the lively environment of the so-called Third Coffee Room of the Aragno Coffee, in the first decade of the twentieth century, where the artist approaches the environment formative of "Il Convito", the art magazine and literature founded by Adolfo De Bosis with Gabriele d'Annunzio and Angelo Conti.

Inventing the opera house : theater architecture in Renaissance and Baroque Italy
Johnson, Eugene J., 1937- author
New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Ferrara and Mantua, 1486-1519 -- Rome 1480's-1520 -- Early theaters in Venice and the Veneto -- Sixteenth century Florence, with excursions to Venice, Lyon and Siena -- Early permanent theaters and the commedia dell'arte -- Theaters in the ancient manner and Andrea Palladio -- Drama-tourney theaters -- Ferrara, Parma, Pesaro, and theaters of Giovanni Battista Aleotti -- Seventeenth century theaters in Venice: the invention of the opera house -- Seventeenth century theaters for comedy and opera -- Teatro di Tordinona in Rome, Queen Christina of Sweden, and Carlo Fontana.

In this book, Eugene Johnson traces the invention of the opera house, a building type of world-wide importance. Italy laid the foundation theatre buildings in the West, in architectural spaces invented for the commedia dell'arte in the sixteenth century, and theatres built to present the new art form of opera in the seventeenth. Rulers lavished enormous funds on these structures. Often they were among the most expensive artistic undertakings of a given prince. They were part of an upsurge of theatrical invention in the performing arts. At the same time, the productions that took place within the opera house could threaten the social order, to the point where rulers would raze them. Johnson reconstructs the history of the opera house by bringing together evidence from a variety of disciplines, including music, art, theatre, and politics. Writing in an engaging manner, he sets the history of the opera house within its broader early modern social context.

Flying too close to the sun : myths in art from classical to contemporary
commissioned and edited by Diane Fortenberry and Rebecca Morrill
London : Phaidon Press Limited, 2018
The first major survey to reveal the ways in which Classical mythology has inspired art throughout the last 2,500 years. From the films of Woody Allen and the Coen Brothers to Margaret Atwood's books and Arcade Fire's songs, Classical Greek and Roman myths continue to be a source of cultural inspiration. The struggles of heroes, both triumphant and tragic, with gods, monsters, and fate, exert a particular grip on our imagination. Visual artists have long expressed and reworked these foundational stories. This is the first book to unite myth-inspired artworks by ancient, modern, and contemporary artists, from Botticelli and Caravaggio to Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst.

"'Uncollected Texts' draws together a number of Carolee Schneemann's earliest writings - many exceedingly rare and several publishered here for the first time - ranging from letters to the editor to dream journals, film criticism, satirical poems, detailed discussions of her art, and pointed feminist critiques. Dating from the mid-1950s to the early 1980s, the writings gathered in this volume shed light on some of Schneemann's most important artistic achievements, including her most famous 'kinetic theater' piece, 'Meat Joy'; anti-Vietnam War works such as 'Snows'; the multimedia performance 'Up to and Including Her Limits'; and the double-screen film 'Kitch's Last Meal'. Frequently referencing one another, the assembled writings create a densely interwoven tapestry of cross-references that provide unique insights into Schneemann's artistic development while also foregrounding the artist's uniquely poetic style."

Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2018
Part I: Images and power. A visual culture ; Art and imperial power -- Part II: Images and society. Art and social life ; Centre and periphery ; Art and death -- Part III: Images and transformation. Art and the past: antiquarian eclecticism ; Art and religion ; The Eurasian context -- Part IV: Epilogue. Art and culture: cost, value, and the discourse of art -- Afterword: Some futures of Christian art.

"The passage from Imperial Rome to the era of late antiquity, when the Roman Empire underwent a religious conversion to Christianity, saw some of the most significant and innovative developments in Western culture. This stimulating book investigates the role of the visual arts, the great diversity of paintings, statues, luxury arts, and masonry, as both reflections and agents of those changes. Elsner's ground-breaking account discusses both Roman and early Christian art in relation to such issues as power, death, society, acculturation, and religion. By examining questions of reception, viewing, and the culture of spectacle alongside the more traditional art-historical themes of imperial patronage and stylistic change, he presents a fresh and challenging interpretation of an extraordinarily rich cultural crucible in which many fundamental developments of later European art had their origins. This second edition includes a new discussion of the Eurasian context of Roman art, an updated bibliography, and new, full colour illustrations."--

This comprehensive survey of the work of the Swiss-born modern master Alberto Giacometti offers a fresh and incisive account of his creative output. Published on the occasion of Giacometti's first major museum presentation in the US in over a decade, the volume brings together nearly 200 sculptures, paintings and drawings to trace the artist's wide-ranging and innovative engagement with the human form across various mediums. While Giacometti may be best known for his distinct figurative sculptures that emerged after World War II, including a series of elongated standing women, striding men and expressive busts, this volume devotes equal attention to the artist's early and midcareer development. It explores his lesser-known engagement with Cubism and Surrealism as well as African, Oceanic and Cycladic art, while also highlighting his remarkable talents as a draftsman and painter alongside his sculptural oeuvre. Of particular focus is Giacometti's studio practice, in addition to historical photographs documenting his relationship with the Guggenheim Museum - which hosted the artist's first US museum exhibition, in 1955 - and with New York City.

In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries the increased movement of merchants and merchandise from China to Europe brought desirable exotic commodities to new markets but also spread ideas, tastes and technologies across western Asia as never before."--Jacket.

Gender and body language in Roman art
Davies, Glenys, author
New York : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Body language and gender in the Roman world, 1: men -- Body language and gender in the Roman world, 2: women -- The standing nude -- Clothed standing figures of men -- Draped statues of women -- Seated statues -- Men and women together.

"Gender and Body Language in Roman Art Can we reconstruct Roman body language? Was it the same as ours? Does body language express and reinforce gender differences and the relative positions of men and women (dominant/subordinate) in society? Can analysis of the postures and gestures of Roman statues add to our understanding of gender in the Roman world? In this book, Glenys Davies explores these questions. Using studies on body language in modern Western societies, Roman literary sources, as well as her own analysis of statues of Roman men and women in an array of guises - nude, draped, standing, seated and represented together - she offers a nuanced and complex picture of gender relations. Her study shows that gender relations in the notoriously patriarchal society of ancient Rome were not so different from what we experience today. Her book will be of interest to scholars of the classical world, gender history, art history, and body language in its social context. Glenys Davies is Honorary Fellow Honorary Fellow, School of History, Classics and Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh. She has published on a wide range of aspects of Roman art as social history, including Roman funerary art, collections of Roman antiquities, gender, Greek and Roman dress, as well as aspects of the representation of body language in Classical art"--

Focused texts by established and emerging scholars assess themes in Piper's work such as the Kantian framework that draws on her extensive philosophical studies; her unique contribution to first-generation conceptual art; the turning point in her work, in the early 1970s, from conceptual works to performance; the connection of her work with her yoga practice; her ongoing exposure of and challenge to xenophobia and sexism; and the relation between prevailing interpretations of her work and the viewers who engender them"

Alexandra Bircken
Köln : Verlag der Buchandlung Walther König, [2017]
STRETCH' is a comprehensive retrospective of work by artist Alexandra Bircken, showing both early and new site-specific pieces. A fundamental parameter of her work is experimentation with materials, with the body as a key point of departure. Her multi-layered, meticulously-constructed sculptures explore skin as covering, as an organ and a cellular structure, but also as a boundary between inside and outside. Materials used in her objects are notable for their strikingly diverse, often contradictory qualities: plaster models, waxes, mannequin fragments and pieces of clothing stand in for body parts; structures packed with wool are used as set pieces and interwoven with one another.00Exhibition: Kunstverein Hannover, Germany (01.10.-27.11.2016) / Städtisches Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach, Germany (26.03.-25.06.2017) / Centre d'art contemporain d'Ivry - Le Crédac, Ivry-sur-Seine, France (08.09.-17.12.2017).

Automatism and creative acts in the age of new psychology
Austin, Linda Marilyn, author
New York : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Introduction: the nineteenth-century debate over human automatisms -- Part I. Automata-phobia. J.S. Mill: genius-automaton ; Automatic aesthetics and the shame of tourism -- Part II. Technologies of the automatic: process and movement. Photography's automatisms ; Automatic writing and physiologies of creativity ; The automata ballets.

"The late nineteenth century saw a re-examination of artistic creativity in response to questions surrounding the relation between human beings and automata. These questions arose from findings in the "new psychology," physiological research that diminished the primacy of mind and viewed human action as neurological and systemic. Concentrating on British and continental culture from 1870 to 1911, this unusual study explores ways in which idea of automatism helped shaped ballet, art photography, literature, and professional writing. Drawing on documents including novels and travel essays, Linda Austin finds a link between efforts to establish standards of artistic practice and challenges to the idea of human exceptionalism. Austin presents each artistic discipline as an example of the same process: creation that should be intended, but involving actions that evade mental control. This study considers how late nineteenth-century literature and arts tackled the scientific question, 'Are we automata?'"--

Architecture and urbanism in the French Atlantic empire : state, church, and society, 1604-1830
Bailey, Gauvin A., author
Kingston : McGill-Queen's University Press, [2018]
"Spanning from the West African coast to the Canadian prairies and south to Louisiana, the Caribbean, and Guiana, France's Atlantic empire was one of the largest political entities in the Western Hemisphere. Yet despite France's status as a nation at the forefront of architecture and the structures and designs from this period that still remain, its colonial building program has never been considered on a hemispheric scale. Drawing from hundreds of plans, drawings, photographic field surveys, and extensive archival sources, Architecture and Urbanism in the French Atlantic Empire focuses on the French state's and the Catholic Church's ideals and motivations for their urban and architectural projects in the Americas. In vibrant detail, Gauvin Alexander Bailey recreates a world that has been largely destroyed by wars, natural disasters, and fires - from Cap-François (now Cap-Haïtien), which once boasted palaces in the styles of Louis XV and formal gardens patterned after Versailles, to failed utopian cities like Kourou in Guiana. Vividly illustrated with examples of grand buildings, churches, and gardens, as well as simple houses and cottages, this volume also brings to life the architects who built these structures, not only French military engineers and white civilian builders, but also the free people of colour and slaves who contributed so much to the tropical colonies. Taking readers on a historical tour through the striking landmarks of the French colonial landscape, Architecture and Urbanism in the French Atlantic Empire presents a sweeping panorama of an entire hemisphere of architecture and its legacy."--

How to make repeat patterns : a guide for designers, architects and artists
Jackson, Paul, 1956- illustrator
London : Laurence King Publishing, 2018
"This book explains, in simple steps and non-mathematical terminology, how to create repeat patterns in a line, on the plane, as tiles and as Escher-like repeats. The book also shows how to make 'wallpaper repeats', where the elements of the pattern merge into each other, apparently seamlessly. Using letters as the basic elements, the book demonstrates how all repeat pattern-making comes out of four simple operations: translation, rotation, reflection and glide reflection. It will provide the definitive one-stop pattern-making resource for professional designers and students across disciplines, from textiles and fashion to graphic design and architecture."--Provided by publisher.

Deborah and her sisters : how one nineteenth-century melodrama and a host of celebrated actresses put Judaism on the world stage
Hess, Jonathan M., 1965- author
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania : University of Pennsylvania Press, [2018]
Introduction. Shylock's daughters: philosemitism, theater, and popular culture in the nineteenth century -- 1 Anatomy of a tearjerker: the melodrama of the forsaken Jewess -- 2 Sensationalism, sympathy, and laughter: Deborah and her sisters -- 3 Playing Jewish from Rachel to the divine Sarah: neutral acting and the wonders of impersonation -- 4 Shylock and the Jewish Schiller: Jews, non-Jews, and the making of philosemitism -- Concluding remarks. Jewishness, theatricality, and the lagacy of Deborah.

"Before Fiddler on the Roof, before The Jazz Singer, there was Deborah, a tear-jerking melodrama about a Jewish woman forsaken by her non-Jewish lover. Within a few years of its 1849 debut in Hamburg, the play was seen on stages across Germany and Austria, as well as throughout Europe, the British Empire, and North America. The German-Jewish elite complained that the playwright, Jewish writer S.H. Mosenthal, had written a drama bearing little authentic Jewish content, while literary critics protested that the play lacked the formal coherence of great tragedy. Yet despite its lackluster critical reception, Deborah became a blockbuster, giving millions of theatergoers the pleasures of sympathizing with an exotic Jewish woman. It spawned adaptations with titles from Leah, the Forsaken to Naomi, the Deserted, burlesques, poems, operas in Italian and Czech, musical selections for voice and piano, a British novel fraudulently marketed in the United States as the original basis for the play, three American silent films, and thousands of souvenir photographs of leading actresses from Adelaide Ristori to Sarah Bernhardt in character as Mosenthal's forsaken Jewess"--Front flap.

New Essentialism: Material Architecture' examines how architecture engages material to create effect through five critical historical thresholds represented by analytical precedents coupled with projective experimental design project families. Unpacking the fundamental methodologies of their geometric, material, spatial, and effectual sensibilities, each threshold builds an examination that reveals the essential methods and processes of design, illustrating the basis for the argument for a 'New Essentialism': its characteristics, methods and the sensibilities that mark its definition.

The politics of parody : a literary history of caricature, 1760-1830
Taylor, David Francis, author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2018]
An original take on literary history that uses visual satire to explore literature's importance to eighteenth-century political culture The first in-depth analysis of the relationship between literature and visual satire in eighteenth-century Britain, this engaging study explores how the works of Shakespeare, Milton, Swift, and others were taken up by caricaturists as a means of helping the public make sense of political issues, outrages, and personalities. In a fascinating and novel approach to literary history, Taylor explores how great texts, seen through the lens of visual parody, shape how we understand the political world.

Maṇḍalas in the making : the visual culture of esoteric Buddhism at Dunhuang
Wang, Michelle C., author
Boston : Brill, [2018]
The first scholarly monograph on Buddhist mandalas in China, this book examines the Mandala of Eight Great Bodhisattvas. This iconographic template, in which a central Buddha is flanked by eight attendants, flourished during the Tibetan (786-848) and post-Tibetan Guiyijun (848-1036) periods at Dunhuang. A rare motif that appears in only four cave shrines at the Mogao and Yulin sites, the mandala bore associations with political authority and received patronage from local rulers. Attending to the historical and cultural contexts surrounding this iconography, this book demonstrates that transcultural communication over the Silk Routes during this period, and the religious dialogue between the Chinese and Tibetan communities, were defining characteristics of the visual language of Buddhist mandalas at Dunhuang.

Lee Lozano : not working
Applin, Jo, author
New Haven, CT : Yale University Press, 2018
This is the first in-depth study of the idiosyncratic ten-year career of Lee Lozano (1930-1999), assuring this important artist a key place in histories of post-war art. The book charts the entirety of Lozano's production in 1960s New York, from her raucous drawings and paintings depicting broken tools, genitalia, and other body parts to the final exhibition of her spectacular series of abstract "Wave Paintings" at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1970. Highly regarded at the time, Lozano is now perhaps best known for Dropout Piece (1970), a conceptual artwork and dramatic gesture with which she quit the art world. Shortly afterwards she announced she would have no further contact with other women. Her "dropout" and "boycott of women" lasted until her death in 1999, by which time she was all but forgotten. This book tackles head-on the challenges that Lozano poses to art history-and especially to feminist art history-attending to her failures as well as her successes, and arguing that through dead ends and impasses she struggled to forge an alternative mode of living. 'Lee Lozano: Not Working' looks for the means to think about complex figures like Lozano whose radical, politically ambiguous gestures test our assumptions about feminism and the "right way" to live and work.

Van Gogh keert terug : De gestolen schilderijen = Van Gogh returns : the stolen paintings
text, Axel Rüger and 4 others
Amsterdam : Van Gogh Museum [2017]
After 14 years two stolen paintings return to the Van Gogh Museum; the art historical value of the paintings for the collection is huge. 'Seascape at Scheveningen' is the only painting in our museum collection dating from Van Gogh's period in The Hague (1881-1883). It is one of the only two seascapes that he painted during his years in the Netherlands and it is a striking example of Van Gogh's early style of painting, already showing his highly individual character. 'Congregation leaving the Reformed Church in Nuenen' is a small canvas that Van Gogh painted for his mother in early 1884. The strong biographical undertones make this a work of great emotional value.

Memories of Underdevelopment, set within the context of Latin America from the 1960s to the 1980s, explores how Latin American artists responded to the unraveling of the utopian promise of modernization. By the 1960s political oppression and brutal military dictatorships had disabused many of their political and artistic hopes. Artists sought out new ways to connect to the public, with conceptual and performance strategies emerging as productive alternatives to older styles, particularly geometric abstraction. This is the first significant survey of these crucial decades, bringing together the work of artists from throughout Latin America, including both artists that are well known in the US, such as Hélio Oiticica and Lygia Pape, as well as lesser-known names.

Takashi Murakami's irreverent, pop culture-infused art has made him one of the most recognized Japanese artists today. His bright, contemporary boisterousness, however, belies his deep scholarship and engagement with traditional Japanese art. 'Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics' presents key examples of Murakami's work alongside a rich selection of Japanese masterpieces spanning several centuries and arranged here according to concepts laid out by his mentor and foil, leading Japanese art historian Nobuo Tsuji. These include works by Kawanabe Kyosai, Soga Shohaku, Kano Eino, Ito Jakuchu and Hishikawa Moronobu. Beautifully illustrated with Tsuji's selections from the peerless Japanese art collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, as well as some of the artist's best-known works of painting and sculpture, the combination of old and new in this groundbreaking volume enriches our understanding of each, and ultimately shows us how contemporary art can be seen as part of a continuum or lineage.

New York, New York : Museum of Modern Art, New York, [2018]
Adrian Piper has consistently produced groundbreaking work that has profoundly shaped the form and content of conceptual art since the 1960s. Strongly inflected by her longstanding involvement with philosophy and yoga, her pioneering investigations into the political, social, psychological and spiritual potential of conceptual art have had an incalculable influence on artists working today. Published in conjunction with the most comprehensive exhibition of her work to date, this catalog presents more than 280 artworks that encompass the full range of Piper's mediums: works on paper, video, multimedia installation, performance, painting, sound and photo-texts. Essays by curators and scholars examine her extensive research into altered states of consciousness; the introduction of the Mythic Being - her subversive masculine alter-ego; her media and installation works from after 1980, which reveal and challenge stereotypes of race and gender; and the global conditions that illuminate the significance of her art. Previously unpublished texts by the artist lay out significant events in her personal history and her deeply felt ideas about the relationship between viewer and art object. This publication expands our understanding of the conceptual and post-conceptual art movements and Piper's pivotal position among her peers and for later generations.

"The processes of global industrialization and mounting consumerism produce so much refuse on a daily basis that recycling and upcycling have become hot topics of vital global importance. Waste, a seemingly inexhaustible resource, has become a new kind of raw material for production. Designers are beginning to take a different view of the "useless" things that people discard: bulky waste, rubbish, cheap materials--in the right hands, these become pure gold. Pure Gold: Upcycled! Upgraded! explores the subject of recycling in design and presents ideas for using refuse to create valuable products. Working with seven curators from Europe, Latin America, North Africa and the Middle East, East Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and South East Asia, Pure Gold brings together 53 designers and approximately 75 of their objects to explore value creation from garbage and scrap materials in European and non-European contexts"--Publisher's description.

Theatre of the natural world
Dion, Mark, 1961- artist
London, England : Whitechapel Gallery, 2018
"The American artist Mark Dion (b. 1961) makes enthralling installations of flora and fauna and of the material cultures of science and display. They echo Renaissance cabinets of curiosity, nineteenth century dioramas and, with their unsettling inclusion of everyday detritus, the absurdist displays of the Surrealists. Yet they are urgently contemporary, foregrounding the complex and increasingly hazardous relation of humanity with other species and ecosystems. This fully-illustrated book spans over 30 years of work through six environments. Each encompasses sculpture, drawing, print and photography and is also the stage for an absent protagonist. Marion Endt-Jones, Ben Luke, Chelsea Kinchin-Smith, Magnus af Petersens, Candy Stobbs and Gilda Williams unravel the clues, historical narratives and contemporary symbolism imbedded in each work, alongside a conversation between Iwona Blazwick and Mark Dion, an overview of his practice by Petra Lange-Berndt and a beautiful short story by Andrea Barrett."

Daniel Richter : lonely old slogans
edited by Michael Juul Holm and Poul Erik Tøjner
[Humlebaek] : Louisiana Museum of Modern Art , 2016
Daniel Richter and the conditions of painting / Roberto Ohrt -- Daniel Richter in conversation with Poul Erik Tøjner.

The German artist Daniel Richter (b. 1962) Daniel Richter arrived on the art scene in the 1990s with a highly expressive abstract formal idiom that evoked associations with his earliest artistic career as a designer of for instance album covers for a number of punk rock bands in Germany of the 1980s. Since the years around the turn of the century, however, Richter has exclusively painted figurative pictures, often described -- also by himself -- as a kind of new history painting. But they lack any reproduction of the specific historical events; the pictures seek rather to capture a particular contemporary spirit, marked by the death of the great political utopias. Richter's paintings are both thematically and formally related to German Expressionism and painters such as Max Beckmann (1884-1950) and George Grosz (1893-1959), who in the years before World War II painted acerbic, humorous and profoundly socially critical, allegorical pictures. Daniel Richter takes a similar approach to painting, which according to him is always ideologically positioned in relation to the surrounding world.00Exhibition: Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebaek, Denmark (08.09.2016-08.01.2017).

Italian architects and builders in the Ottoman Empire and modern Turkey : design across borders
edited by Paolo Girardelli and Ezio Godoli
Newcastle upon Tyne : Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2017
"This volume represents the first scholarly work in English devoted to the experience of Italian architects and builders in Turkey, as well as in many of the lands once belonging to the Ottoman Empire. Covering a complex cultural and political geography spanning from the Danubian principalities (today's Romania) to Anatolia and the Aegean region, the book is the result of individual research experiences that were brought together and debated in an international conference in Istanbul in March 2013, organized in collaboration with the Italian Institute of Culture and Bogazici University.0Grounded on a flexible notion of identitarian boundaries, the book explores a rich transcultural field of encounters and interactions, analyzed and evaluated by scholars from six different countries on the basis of hitherto uncovered archival materials. Forms, ideas, individual mobility of actors and materials, networks of patronage, material and political constraints, and religious and cultural difference all play a significant role in shaping the landscapes, buildings and architectural projects presented and discussed here. From late 18th and early 19th century experiences of interaction between neo-classical backgrounds and westernizing Ottoman forms to the Italian proposals for a Turkish republican iconic landmark like the Ataturk mausoleum in Ankara; from the design of the first Ottoman university building to Ottoman varieties of Art Nouveau and Art Deco, and to the infrastructures and urban developments of the 1950s in Turkey, the book is both a richly illustrated and documented overview of relevant cases, and a critical introduction to one of the most enticing areas of encounter in the global history of 19th and 20th century architecture and design."--Page 4 of cover.

Seth Stein Architects
Powell, Ken, 1947- author
London : Lund Humphries, 2017
Since Seth Stein founded his practice in 1990, he has gained an international reputation and numerous awards for creating extraordinary buildings, both residential and commercial. From new-built coastal retreats to revitalised historic urban townhouses and palazzos, his architecture is always both striking and elegant: sculptural and flowing in form, light-filled, with a mastery of materials and exquisite detailing. There is a strong sense of place in his projects, as a country house curves around the contours of a ridge, making the most of its vantage over the sea, or a futuristic urban interior is juxtaposed within an elegant listed structure, revitalising it for contemporary living. Running through the practice's work is a deceptive simplicity, an exciting and innovative use of new building methods and materials, along with an intrinsic environmental sustainability. This monograph aims not only to bring together the full range of Seth Stein Architects' projects for the first time, but in doing so, to offer insights into the practice's ethos and design processes, setting them within context and exploring key issues and themes.

British + Irish modern : new houses and old houses made new
edited by Hannah Jenkins ; foreword by Maggie Toy
Mulgrave, Victoria : The Images Publishing Group, 2018
"House design in Britain and Ireland is guided by climate, landscape and local resources just as much as the centuries-old traditions that have influenced architectural shape and form. Today's best-known and emerging architects interpret their briefs with imaginative flair: they are transforming houses for the next generation of families by blending their renewed vigour for a local aesthetic with new materials and trends. Many of the new houses featured in British & Irish Modern reflect the architect's focus on redefining local expectations for form by beautifully juxtaposing the traditional with contemporary structures, thus forging a new vernacular. Architects across this region are wholeheartedly seeking opportunities to re-use existing structures in myriad ways, resulting in surprising and remarkably unique renditions of old houses and buildings made new. Shown in stunning, full-colour photographic detail are hundreds of pages of new and renovated houses, cottages and even converted barns nestled in misty rural valleys, including new and retrofitted modern inner-city terraces and townhouses that make the best use of available space. Houses are selected for levels of comfort, use of materials, and dramatic expression of traditional and contemporary architecture, as well as houses that capitalise on longer and warmer summers imposed by changing weather patterns in this corner of the globe. Houses are designed with indoor spaces and intimate courtyards for play and recreation that draw in light and shield from the extreme weather elements yet maintain an eye on sustainability and affordability. British & Irish Modern reveals a rich array of works that showcase how architecture in Britain and Ireland today has much to teach the world about creative, high-calibre design, innovative application of materials, and cautious but clever reliance on resources.

Early British animation : from page and stage to cinema screens
Cook, Malcolm, 1976- author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan , [2018]
This book is the first history of British animated cartoons, from the earliest period of cinema in the 1890s up to the late 1920s. In this period cartoonists and performers from earlier traditions of print and stage entertainment came to film to expand their artistic practice, bringing with them a range of techniques and ideas that shaped the development of British animation. These were commercial rather than avant-garde artists, but they nevertheless saw the new medium of cinema as offering the potential to engage with modern concerns of the early 20th century, be it the political and human turmoil of the First World War or new freedoms of the 1920s. Cook?s examination and reassessment of these films and their histories reveals their close attention and play with the way audiences saw the world. As such, this book offers new insight into the changing understanding of vision at that time as Britain?s place in the world was reshaped in the early 20th century.
