Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, 2017. 24cm., pbk., 248pp., 60 color illus.

Summary: When it comes to viewing art, living in the information age is not necessarily a benefit. So argues Michael Findlay in this book that encourages a new way of looking at art. Much of this thinking involves stripping away what we have been taught and instead trusting our own instincts, opinions, and reactions. Including reproductions of works by Mark Rothko, Paul Klee, Joan Miro, Jacob Lawrence, and other modern and contemporary masters, this book takes readers on a journey through modern art. Chapters such as "What Is a Work of Art?", "Can We Look and See at the Same Time?", and "Real Connoisseurs Are Not Snobs," not only give readers the confidence to form their own opinions, but also encourages them to make connections that spark curiosity, intellect, and imagination. "The most important thing for us to grasp," writes Findlay, "is that the essence of a great work of art is inert until it is seen. Our engagement with the work of art liberates its essence." After reading this book, even the most intimidated art viewer will enter a museum or gallery feeling more confident and leave it feeling enriched and inspired.

Description: Cambridge: MIT Press, 2017. 29cm., hardcover, 256pp., 125 color, 65 b&w illus.

Summary: Wanderlust highlights artists as voyagers who leave their studios to make art. This book (and the exhibition it accompanies) is the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s need to roam and the work that emerges from this need. Wanderlust presents the work of under-recognized yet pioneering artists alongside their well-known counterparts, and represents works that vary in process, with some artists working as solitary figures implanting themselves physically on the landscape while others perform and create movements in a collaborative manner or in public. Many of the earlier works use what were at the time nontraditional methods of art making. In Trail Markers (1969), for example, Nancy Holt spent time in the English countryside, where she documented the painted orange trail markers she found dotting the landscape. Vito Acconci explored his body’s “occupancy” of public space through the execution of preconceived actions or activities. In Following Piece (1969), Acconci followed one randomly chosen stranger through the streets of New York. A Line Made by Walking (1967), a black-and-white photograph of Richard Long’s imprint of a straight line in a field, was Long’s first walking art work, made on a journey to St Martin’s from his home in Bristol. Ana Mendieta’s influential Silueta Works in Mexico (1977) documents performances by the artist during her travel between Iowa and Mexico, in which she imprints her body on the landscape while addressing issues of displacement. Each of these works recognizes the walk and the journey as much more than just a basic human act. Rebecca Solnit observes that walking replicates thinking, adding “the motions of the mind cannot be traced, but those of the feet can.” These works trace the motions of wandering artists’ focused minds. Artists include: Vito Acconci, Bas Jan Ader, Nevin Aladag, Francis Alÿs, Janine Antoni, John Baldessari, Kim Beck, Roberley Bell, Blue Republic, Sophie Calle, Rosemarie Castoro, Cardiff/Miller, Zoe Crosher, Fallen Fruit, Mona Hatoum, Nancy Holt, Kenneth Josephson, William Lamson, Richard Long, Marie Lorenz, Mary Mattingly, Anthony McCall, Ana Mendieta, Teresa Murak, Wangechi Mutu, Efrat Natan, Gabriel Orozco, Carmen Papalia, John Pfahl, Pope.L, Teri Rueb, Michael X. Ryan, Todd Shalom, Mary Ellen Strom, and Guido van der Werve.

Description: Oxford: Ashmolean Museum, 2017. 32cm., hardcover, 360pp., ca. 400 color illus.

Summary: The Ashmolean Museum is fortunate in having the most comprehensive British collection of the art of the Indian subcontinent outside London. Especially strong in sculpture, this rich representation of Indian art from prehistory to the twentieth century has come about through the generosity of our benefactors over more than three centuries. The Museum's first major Indian sculpture acquisition, a stone Pala-style Vishnu image of the eleventh century, was given in 1686 by Sir William Hedges, a governor of the East India Company in Bengal. From the late nineteenth century, a substantial core of the present collection was assembled at the University's former Indian Institute Museum (1897-1962), precursor of the Department of Eastern Art, which opened within the Ashmolean in 1963. Since that date many more Indian objects of all periods have been acquired by gift, bequest or purchase.

Description: London: Oxbow Books, 2018. 24cm., hardcover, 528pp. illus.

Summary: The House of the Surgeon represents the first major publication of an important series of excavations undertaken by the Anglo-American Project in Pompeii (1994-2006) at the ancient city of Pompeii in a city block known as Insula VI 1. This is one of the largest, most comprehensive, and most important sub-surface, pre-79 AD excavations ever to have been undertaken at Pompeii. The methodology employed to the systematic examination of an entire city block, involving extensive artefact and ecofact recovery, using the latest scientific methods, has generated one of the single largest bodies of archaeological data ever produced on the development of ancient Pompeii, from the earliest traces of human habitation until its destruction. The first major section of this data is now made available in form of a study of the most famous and prominent of the houses on the block. The Casa del Chirurgo (House of the Surgeon) has been one of the most frequently cited houses in the ancient city since its discovery in 1771. The results of the exhaustive study of the house within its urban context not only challenge many of the conclusions of previous research, but also make it possible at last for this important property to contribute information to the full history of Pompeii’s urban development, illuminating the chronology of urban change, the processes involved in ancient domestic construction, aspects of the ancient environment, and changing socio-political and economic conditions within Italy throughout the middle to late Republic and early Empire.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, 2017. 28cm., hardcover, 296pp., 300 color illus. English text. Exhibition held at Barbican Art Gallery, London.

Summary: Basquiat first came to prominence when he collaborated with Al Diaz to spray-paint enigmatic statements under the pseudonym SAMOc. 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. Six thematic chapters offer new research, with essays from poet Christian Campbell on SAMOc; curator Carlo McCormick on New York / New Wave; writer Glenn O'Brien on the downtown scene; academic Jordana Moore Saggese on Basquiat's relationship to film and television; and music scholar Francesco Martinelli on Basquiat's obsession with jazz. 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.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, in association with the Kunsthalle Bremen and the Museum Barberini, 2017. 30cm., hardcover, 248pp., 200 color illus. Exhibition catalogue. English text.

Summary: Many of the paintings by Max Beckmann show the world of the theater, the circus, and vaudeville. He assumed the position of the spectator and his paintings were the stage. He was driven by pageantry and this is the first publication to show how Beckmann's artistic theater was palpably visual while also showing his work in the context of the history of ideas. It brings home how the painter and author of dramas that has hitherto received little attention saw himself as an "impresario, director, and scene shifter." This book grants readers highly innovative and captivating access to one of the exceptional artists of the last century and his extraordinary visual and formal language.

Title: Face and Mask: A Double History
Author: Belting, Hans
Price: $45.00
ISBN: 9780691162355
Record created on 11/30/16
Description: Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2017. 24cm., hardcover, 288pp., 53 color, 51 b&w illus. American edition.

Summary: This fascinating book presents the first cultural history and anthropology of the face across centuries, continents, and media. Ranging from funerary masks and masks in drama to the figural work of contemporary artists including Cindy Sherman and Nam June Paik, renowned art historian Hans Belting emphasizes that while the face plays a critical role in human communication, it defies attempts at visual representation. Belting divides his book into three parts: faces as masks of the self, portraiture as a constantly evolving mask in Western culture, and the fate of the face in the age of mass media. Referencing a vast array of sources, Belting's insights draw on art history, philosophy, theories of visual culture, and cognitive science. He demonstrates that Western efforts to portray the face have repeatedly failed, even with the developments of new media such as photography and film, which promise ever-greater degrees of verisimilitude. In spite of sitting at the heart of human expression, the face resists possession, and creative endeavors to capture it inevitably result in masks--hollow signifiers of the humanity they're meant to embody. From creations by Van Eyck and August Sander to works by Francis Bacon, Ingmar Bergman, and Chuck Close, Face and Mask takes a remarkable look at how, through the centuries, the physical visage has inspired and evaded artistic interpretation.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, 2017. 27cm., pbk., 288pp, 291 color illus. Exhibition held at Haus der Kunst, Munich. English text.

Summary: Like the majority of Louise Bourgeois's oeuvre, her "Cells" series is both enigmatic and personal. Preoccupy her attention for nearly 20 years, these complex and sophisticated works are daring and provocative. Many are small enclosures into which the viewer is prompted to peer at arrangements of various objects; others are small rooms into which the viewer is invited to enter. In her "Cells", Bourgeois uses sculptural forms, found objects, and personal items that were significant to her. Six "Cells" from the series are given close attention, revealing the enormous diversity of Bourgeois's artistic engagement as well as recurring themes of physical and emotional pain, voyeurism, integration, and disintegration. A designated section displays the entire "Cells" series with extensive color reproductions including several details in chronological order. Together with an essay on the evolution of the "Cells" and an interview with the artist's former assistant, Jerry Gorovoy, this volume offers a holistic appreciation of a crucial phase in Bourgeois's highly influential career.

Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, in association with the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 96pp., 60 illus.

Summary: This beautifully illustrated book documents Pickett’s Charge, an ambitious and timely project by renowned artist Mark Bradford. Eight new paintings extend nearly four hundred feet to form a 360-degree experience encircling an entire floor of the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C. Bradford’s monumental installation is inspired by the 1883 cyclorama painted by Paul Philippoteaux to commemorate the Battle of Gettysburg, which has been considered the critical turning point of the Civil War and, consequently, of American history. Elements from Philippoteaux’s paintings are among multiple layers of collaged paper that Bradford has scraped through to reveal hidden textures and complexities, and this interplay—between past and present, between the legible and the mysteriously evocative—encourages a reconsideration of history’s conventional linear narratives. The catalogue features an interview with the artist by Stéphane Aquin and an essay by Evelyn Hankins that situates the site-specific project within a broader art historical context. With lavish images of the paintings and their installation, this book records a significant new contribution to socially engaged American art.

Summary: This timely entry in the Contemporary Artists series focuses on Mark Bradford, the Los Angeles-based artist best known for his large-scale abstract paintings that examine the class, race, and gender-based economies that structure urban society. His collages and installations, made of materials scavenged from the streets, have created a unique body of work that still stands as a strong response to the impromptu networks that emerge within a city. In this new title, his life and work are explored as never before.

Description: Leiden: Leiden University Press, 2017. 27cm., pbk., 306pp. prof. illus.

Summary: Textiles that have been uncovered in archaeological excavations include garments, household fabrics, and sails. But until now, systematic analyses of such discoveries had not yet been undertaken for Dutch artifacts. Closing this considerable gap, Clothes Make the Man focuses on textile remains dating from between 400 and 1000 CE that have been recovered from settlements and cemeteries in what is now the Netherlands. As Chrystel R. Brandenburgh shows, such fabrics enable valuable reconstructions of burial clothing and yield important data about their production processes and techniques.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, in association with the Palm Springs Art Museum, 2017. 29cm., hardcover, 240pp., 200 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Kinesthesia: Latin American Kinetic Art, 1954-1969 examines the influential and visually stunning work of South American kinetic artists. While Southern California was becoming the North American epicenter for Light and Space art in the 1960s, separate yet closely related technical experiments had been unfolding in a handful of major cities of South America, as well as in Paris, the European center for kinetic art. Kinesthesia highlights the broad differences that emerged among the two principal South American centers of activity: Argentina, where kinetic art grew out of local debates about painting; and Venezuela, where pioneering notions of modern architecture stimulated a synthesis of art and design. Featured in this volume are kinetic sculptures and installations by Jesus Rafael Soto, Julio Le Parc, Carlos Cruz- Diez, Martha Boto, and others, as well as essays that explore the history of this movement, examine the artists' reception by European and American audiences in the context of the Cold War, and link their achievements to 21st-century artists and their work.

Title: The Iranian Expanse : Transforming Royal Identity through Architecture, Landscape, and the Built Environment, 550 BCE–642 CE

Description: Berkeley: University of California Press, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 360pp. illus.

Summary: The Iranian Expanse explores how kings in the ancient Iranian world utilized the built and natural environment—everything from royal cities and paradise gardens, to hunting enclosures and fire temples—to form and contest Iranian cultural memory, royal identity, and sacred cosmologies over a thousand years of history. Although scholars have often noted startling continuities between the traditions of the Achaemenids and the art and architecture of medieval or Early Modern Islam, the tumultuous millennium between Alexander and Islam has routinely been downplayed or omitted. The Iranian Expanse delves into this fascinating period, examining royal culture and identity as something built and shaped by strategic changes to architectonic and urban spaces and the landscape of Western Asia. Canepa shows how the Seleucids, Arsacids, and Sasanians played a transformative role in developing a new Iranian royal culture that deeply influenced not only early Islam, but also the wider Persianate world of the Il-Khans, Safavids, Timurids, and Mughals.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, 2017. 30cm., hardcover, 304pp., 265 color illus. Exhibition held at Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe. English text.

Summary: As an artist, Paul Cezanne sought to capture the secrets and essence of the world around him - a world he perceived as phenomena constantly in flux. This book explores Cezanne's oeuvre through the lens of that philosophy, thoughtfully organizing individual works into a series of thematic phases. Breaking up pictorial genres, it sheds light on the fluid interplay among the artist's still lifes, landscapes, and portraits. Cezanne's practice of studying and imitating his predecessors and contemporaries is explored as a fundamental feature of his work. It also delves into the artist's reliance on his emotional, rather than objective, perception of reality. Filled with full color reproductions of the artist's famous and lesser-known works, as well as illuminating essays by leading curators and critics, this groundbreaking exploration offers readers an unprecedented appraisal of one of the world's most loved artists.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, 2017. 32cm., hardcover, 232pp., 231 color illus.

Summary: Sarah Charlesworth explored an array of artistic expressions, from conceptual photography in the 1970s, appropriation of images associated with the Pictures Generation in the 1980s, and studio-based photography using props and setups beginning in the 1990s. At each turn, her growth as an artist paralleled the evolution of photography as a contemporary medium. This richly illustrated monograph offers a historical perspective on Charlesworth's art and reflects extensive access to her archive, including notebooks, sketchbooks, diaries, studio logs, test prints, and many never-before-published images, revealing her thought processes over time and their articulation within and across her career. Opening with a chronological essay followed by examinations of particular aspects of the artist's evolving practice, the book reevaluates and clarifies Charlesworth's impact as a photographer, writer, and theorist.

Description: Berkeley: University of California Press, in association with The Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, 2017. 28cm., hardcover, 192pp. illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Repentant Monk: Illusion and Disillusion in the Art of Chen Hongshou is the first U.S. exhibition focusing solely on Chen Hongshou (1599–1652), a major figure in Chinese painting. Chen has long been regarded as one of the most visually exciting artists of his time as evidenced in this exhibition by a careful selection of his best extant work including figure, landscape, and bird and flower paintings drawn from collections world-wide. Chen’s iconic manner of painting figures in the styles of ancient masters lends an aura of antiquity to his work which is equally charged by distinct expressions of irony, humor, and pathos. In his landscape paintings we recognize his vast knowledge of past traditions while in his bird and flower paintings we see a remarkable freshness and modernity that has tremendous popular appeal. Repentant Monk addresses the need for a greater historical understanding of this artist’s work and breadth of paintings made during the transitional period of the late Ming and early Qing dynasties (early to mid- seventeenth century). The title refers to the sobriquet that Chen adopted in 1646, and goes to the heart of the exhibition content. Chen used "Repentant Monk" (Hui Seng) in seals and signature for a short period of time but his paintings reflected his personal state of mind throughout his later period. His withdrawal from society and adoption of this name make public both his disappointment with the Ming as well as his own regret at surviving and carrying on into the new Qing dynasty rather than following other loyalists to death by their own hands. The exhibition will include work from major museums worldwide and includes strategic loans such as Elegant Gathering (1646) from the Shanghai Museum, Scenes from the Life of Tao Yuanming from the Honolulu Museum of Art, and The Mountain of Five Cataracts (1624) from The Cleveland Museum of Art. The catalogue includes an introduction by exhibition curator Julia M. White with essays by Tamara Bentley, Shi Yee Liu, Richard Vinograd, Hiromitsu Kobayashi, and Patricia Berger. Transcriptions and translations are compiled by Julia Jaw.

Description: Berkeley: University of California Press, 2017. 25cm., hardcover, 392pp. illus.

Summary: The first extended study of the renowned artists’ collective Fluxus, Corporate Imaginations examines the group’s emergence on three continents from 1962 to 1978, and its complexities, contradictions, and historical specificity. Its founder, George Maciunas, organized Fluxus like a multinational corporation, simulating corporate organization and commodity flows, a reflection of how he imagined critical art practice at that time. Despite the collective’s critical stance toward the corporation, Fluxus shared aspects of the rising corporate culture of the day. In this book, Mari Dumett addresses the “business” of Fluxus and explores the larger discursive issues of organization, mediatization, routinization, automation, commoditization, and systematization that Fluxus artists both manipulated and exposed in bold relief. A study of six central figures in the group—George Brecht, Alison Knowles, Maciunas, Nam June Paik, Mieko Shiomi, and Robert Watts,—reveals how they developed historically specific strategies of mimicking the capitalist system. These artists appropriated tools, occupied spaces, revealed operations, and, ultimately, “performed the system” itself by employing an aesthetics of organization, communication, events, branding, routine, and global mapping. Invoking “corporate imaginations,” Fluxus artists proposed “strategies for living” as conscious creative subjects within a totalizing and increasingly global system, and demonstrated how these strategies must be repeated in an ongoing negotiation of new relations of power and control between subject and system.

Title: Perfection's Therapy : An Essay on ALBRECHT DÜRER's Melencolia I

Description: Cambridge: MIT Press, 2015. 24cm., hardcover, 320pp., 50 b&w illus.

Summary: Albrecht Dürer’s famous portrayal of creative effort in paralysis, the unsurpassed masterpiece of copperplate engraving titled Melencolia I, has stood for centuries as a pictorial summa of knowledge about the melancholic temperament, a dense allegory of the limits of earthbound arts and sciences and the impossibility of attaining perfection. Dubbed the “image of images” for being the most zealously interpreted picture in the Western canon, Melencolia I also presides over the origins of modern iconology, art history’s own science of meaning. Yet we are left with a clutter of mutually contradictory theories, a historiographic ruin that confirms the mood of its object. In Perfection’s Therapy, Mitchell Merback reopens the case file and argues for a hidden intentionality in Melencolia’s opacity, its structural “chaos,” and its resistance to allegorical closure. That intentionality, he argues, points toward a fascinating possibility never before considered: that Dürer’s masterpiece is not only an arresting diagnosis of melancholic distress, but an innovative instrument for its undoing. Merback deftly resituates Dürer’s image within the long history of the therapeutic artifact. Placing Dürer’s therapeutic project in dialogue with that of humanism's founder, Francesco Petrarch, Merback also unearths Dürer’s ambition to act as a physician of the soul. Celebrated as the "Apelles of the black line" in his own day, and ever since as Germany's first Renaissance painter-theorist, the Dürer we encounter here is also the first modern Christian artist, addressing himself to the distress of souls, including his own. Melencolia thus emerges as a key reference point in a venture of spiritual-ethical therapy, a work designed to exercise the mind, restore the body's equilibrium, and help in getting on with the undertaking of perfection.

Description: Berkeley: University of California Press, 2017. 28cm., hardcover, 288pp. illus. Exhibition held at Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Fort Worth.

Summary: Polaroid instant photography revolutionized the taking and making of pictures, and the story of its beginnings is a simple one. In 1943, after being asked by his daughter why she couldn’t immediately see the photograph he had just taken, American inventor and scientist Edwin H. Land conceived of the technology required to make this seemingly impossible demand a reality—within an hour. Land’s creation was a groundbreaking scientific accomplishment that also heralded an exciting new chapter of artistic expression. Through the efforts of thousands of photographers the world over, as well as the corporation’s own artist support program, which provided many with materials, Polaroid would help shape the artistic landscape of the late twentieth century. Published to accompany a major traveling exhibition, The Polaroid Project is a creative exploration of the relationship between Polaroid’s many technological innovations and the art that was created with their help. Richly designed with over 300 illustrations, this impressive volume showcases not only the myriad and often idiosyncratic approaches taken by such photographers as Ansel Adams, Robert Mapplethorpe, Ellen Carey, and Chuck Close, but also a fascinating selection of the technical objects and artifacts that speak to the sheer ingenuity that lay behind the art. With essays by the exhibition’s curators and leading photographic writers and historians, The Polaroid Project provides a unique perspective on the Polaroid phenomenon—a technology, an art form, a convergence of both—and its enduring cultural legacy.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, in association with the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, 2017. 25cm., hardcover, 408pp., 550 illus.

Summary: Amidst the tumult and revolution that characterized the latter half of the 20th century in Latin America and the US, women artists were staking their claim in nearly every field. This wideranging volume examines the work of more than 100 female artists with nearly 300 works in the fields of painting, sculpture, photography, video, performance art, and other experimental media. A series of thematic essays, arranged by country, address the cultural and political contexts in which these radical artists worked, while other essays address key issues such as feminism, art history, and the political body. Drawing its design and feel from the radical underground pamphlets, catalogs, and posters of the era, this is the first examination of a highly influential period in 20th-century art history.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, 2017. 30cm., hardcover, 256pp., 480 color illus.

Summary: Teresita Fernandez creates elaborate installations that pull viewers into other worlds and environments, playing with scale, material and how we understand and navigate the landscape. The idea of wayfinding-moving from place to place or even getting lost-is critical to understanding Fernandez's approach, which incorporates unconventional materials such as graphite, pyrite, dyed thread, polycarbonate tubes, gold and malachite to explore how we look at and process our surroundings from land to sky, private to public. This book is a journey designed as constellation of works rather than a chronological retrospective, inviting readers to explore Fernandez's oeuvre through large, full-color illustrations; writings on place; references to literature, film, art history, and poetry, alongside Fernandez's own writings; and critical essays. Organized into six sections-landscape, celestial, terrestrial, subterranean, cinematic, and radiance- which reflect themes recurring in Fernandez's practice, this volume spans her full career. The result is a dramatically rich experience of getting to know an artist through her creative process-a rewarding journey that will satisfy general readers and scholars alike.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, in association with the Palm Springs Art Museum, 2017. 28cm., hardcover, 192pp., 125 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: This book proposes a dialogue between two key 20th-century architects, Albert Frey and Lina Bo Bardi. Frey moved from Switzerland to the US in the early 1930s and Bo Bardi emigrated from Italy to Brazil after the end of World War II. While they never met, their intellectual odysseys overlapped. Both fostered the integration among architecture, landscape, and people, helping transform the architectural culture in their adoptive countries. Their design affinities converged in the notion of a living architecture, evident in their publications and the projects featured here. Frey, a pioneer of "desert modernism" in southern California, embraced the landscape and experimented with materials to create elegantly detailed structures. Bo Bardi produced idiosyncratic works that strove to merge modern and traditional vocabularies in an architecture conceived as a stage for everyday life. Placing these architects side by side, the authors explore modern architecture through crosscultural exchanges and unveil meaningful, though little-known, architectural dialogues across cultures and continents.

Description: Chicago: DePaul Art Museum, distr. University of Chicago Press, 2016. 27cm., pbk., 72pp. illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Dianna Frid’s sculptures, installations, artist’s books, and mixed media work explore the intersection of text and textile, matter and subject matter. Richard Rezac has created thought-provoking abstract object-sculptures since the 1980s. This book, the catalog for a recent exhibition at the DePaul Art Museum, brings together works by both of these Chicago-based artists. In doing so, Dianna Frid + Richard Rezac: Split Complementary shines a light on their shared sensibilities—a rigorous yet poetic approach that revels in the nuances of color, surface, and material. Frid’s and Rezac’s works appear here accompanied by rare books from DePaul University’s John T. Richardson Library and a variety of objects from the DePaul Art Museum’s permanent collection. The juxtaposition of objects made by artists, craftspeople, and bookbinders generates affinities that broaden how we see and understand all of the work assembled in these pages. Complementing each other formally, these pieces offer opportunities to find familiar patterns in unfamiliar forms and surprising connections between dissimilar objects.

Record created on 12/14/16
Description: Milan: Silvana, 2017. 28cm., hardcover, 368pp., 450 color illus. English text.

Summary: Taking in an entire century of incredible innovations, this nearly 400-page volume constitutes the most thorough overview to date of Italian jewelry in the 20th century. Alongside superb photography of individual works, it reproduces preparatory drawings from the archives of prestigious jewelers and private collections, many of which are published here for the first time. The volume opens with the work of Mario Buccellati, whose delicate, lacelike jewelry is incomparable in its technical execution. It then considers the Milanese jeweler Alfredo Ravasco, Filippo Chiappe in Genoa, the Musy family of Turin, the Petochi family in Rome, Codognato’s goldsmithing and the Etruscan-inspired jewels of Ascione. A section of the book is dedicated to 1940s jewelry, examining works by Cusi, Chantecler, Fasano and Illario. Attention is also paid to the 1960s and 1970s, which marked the birth of the new Bulgari style, challenging the supremacy of the great French jewelers. Works by Mario Masenza, done in collaboration with artists such as Afro, Cannilla, Capogrossi and Uncini, also receive special focus. The enormous success of the “Made in Italy” trademark during the 1980s–90s led to an international boom in the sales of Italian jewelry, exemplified by Pomellato, Giò Caroli and Rivière. The book concludes with in-depth studies of manufacturing centers such as Valenza, Vicenza and Arezzo, the works of the Padua School and biographies of the jewelers and goldsmiths cited, plus a section of 350 archival documents.

Summary: One wintry day in 1983, alongside other street sellers in the East Village, David Hammons peddled snowballs of various sizes. He had neatly laid them out in graduated rows and spent the day acting as obliging salesman. He called the evanescent and unannounced street action Bliz-aard Ball Sale, thus inscribing it into a body of work that, from the late 1960s to the present, has used a lexicon of ephemeral actions and self-consciously “black materials to comment on the nature of the artwork, the art world, and race in America. And although Bliz-aard Ball Sale has been frequently cited and is increasingly influential, it has long been known only through a mix of eyewitness rumors and a handful of photographs. Its details were as elusive as the artist himself; even its exact date was unrecorded. Like so much of the artist’s work, it was conceived, it seems, to slip between our fingers—to trouble the grasp of the market, as much as of history and knowability. In this engaging study, Elena Filipovic collects a vast oral history of the ephemeral action, uncovering rare images and documents, and giving us singular insight into an artist who made an art of making himself difficult to find. And through it, she reveals Bliz-aard Ball Sale to be the backbone of a radical artistic oeuvre that transforms such notions as “art,” “commodity,” “performance,” and even “race” into categories that shift and dissolve, much like slowly melting snowballs.

Description: Berkeley: University of California Press, 2018. 29cm., hardcover, 322pp illus.

Summary: Active from 1940 to 1948, PM was a progressive New York City daily tabloid newspaper committed to the politics of labor, social justice, and antifascism—and it prioritized the intelligent and critical deployment of both pictures and their perception as paramount in these campaigns. With PM as its main focus, Artist as Reporter offers a substantial intervention into the literature on American journalism, photography, and modern art. The book considers the journalistic contributions to PM of such signal American modernists as the curator Holger Cahill, the abstract painter Ad Reinhardt, the photographers Weegee and Lisette Model, and the filmmaker, photographer, and editor Ralph Steiner. Each of its five chapters explores one dimension of the tabloid’s complex journalistic activation of modernism’s potential, showing how PM inserted into daily print journalism the most innovative critical thinking in the fields of painting, illustration, cartooning, and the lens-based arts. Artist as Reporter promises to revise our own understanding of midcentury American modernism and the nature of its relationship to the wider media and public culture.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, 2017. 30cm., hardcover, 288pp., 300 color illus. English text.

Summary: Presented in a style as stunning as the prints it celebrates, this survey of Hiroshige tells the fascinating story of the last great practitioner of ukiyo-e, or "pictures of the floating world." Hiroshige is considered to be the tradition's most poetic artist and his work had a marked influence on Western painting towards the end of the 19th century. Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Paul Cezanne, and James Whistler were inspired by Hiroshige's serene depictions of the natural world. Arranged chronologically, this book illustrates through text and magnificent reproductions Hiroshige's youth and early career; his artistic development in the genre of landscape prints; his depictions of Edo and the provinces; the flower and bird prints; and his many popular books and paintings. It discusses the historic and cultural environment in which Hiroshige flourished and the many reasons his art continues to be revered and imitated. Filled with 300 color reproductions, and featuring a clamshell box and Japanese-style binding, this volume is destined to become the definitive examination of Hiroshige's oeuvre.

Description: Berkeley: University of California Press, 2017. 25cm., hardcover, 365pp.

Summary: This is the first sourcebook to trace the emergence and evolution of art markets in the Western European economy, framing them within the larger narrative of the ascendancy of capitalist markets. Selected writings from across academic disciplines present compelling evidence of art’s inherent commercial dimension and show how artists, dealers, and collectors have interacted over time, from the city-states of Quattrocento Italy to the high-stakes markets of postmillennial New York and Beijing. This approach casts a startling new light on the traditional concerns of art history and aesthetics, revealing much that is provocative, profound, and occasionally even comic. This volume’s unique historical perspective makes it appropriate for use in college courses and postgraduate and professional programs, as well as for professionals working in art-related environments such as museums, galleries, and auction houses.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, 2017. 26cm., hardcover, 120pp., 76 color illus. Exhibition held at University Art Museum, California State University, Long Beach.

Summary: Over the course of a storied career, Robert Irwin has come to regard art as site determined, or something that works in and responds to its surroundings. This book opens with his projects on college campuses between 1975 and 1982. These are followed by Irwin's major, yet never realized, commission for the Miami International Airport, where he proposed to transform the structure, parking lots, and roadways into a sequence of aesthetic and practical spaces that engaged directly with the South Florida environment. It then turns to one of Irwin's most celebrated works, the Central Garden at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Finally, the book takes readers to the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, and one of Irwin's most ambitious works to date-a monumental artwork that brilliantly connects viewers to the land and sky. Throughout this collection of drawings, models, and photographs of magnificent, groundbreaking projects, readers will come to see Irwin as a visionary artist and a brilliant draftsman.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, 2017. 28cm., hardcover, 224pp., 180 color illus.

Summary: In this fascinating look at over 180 "hidden" images Helga Prignitz-Poda, one of the world's leading authorities on the Mexican artist, pulls back the curtain on masterpieces that rarely, if ever, see the inside of an exhibition or gallery. Illustrated with stunning reproductions of works that Prignitz- Poda has discovered over the course of her career, this book helps expand our knowledge and understanding of this hugely popular artist. Arranged chronologically, the works include those Kahlo completed in her youth, works from her travels to America, paintings she made as an instructor in Mexico City, and a number of still-lifes from the last phase of her career. From largely unknown images, such as embroidery stitched at the age of five and doodles on love letters to her boyfriend Alejandro, to well-known works such as My Birth (1932), now owned by Madonna, and Remembrance of the Open Wound, which was destroyed in a fire, these "hidden" artworks create an invaluable resource for Frida Kahlo scholars and will be treasured by the painter's many fans.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, in association with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 2017. 31cm., hardcover, 360pp., 325 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: The histories of Mexico and the United States have been intertwined since the 18th century, when both were colonies of European empires. America's fascination with Mexican culture emerged in the 19th century and continues to this day. In turn, Mexico looked to the US as a model of modernity, its highways and high-rises emblematic of "The American Way of Life." Exploring the design movements that defined both places during the 20th century, this book is arranged into four sections- Spanish Colonial inspiration, Pre-Hispanic Revivals, Folk Art and Craft Traditions, and Modernism. Featured are essays by leading scholars and illustrations of more than 300 works by architects and designers including Richard Neutra, Luis Barragan, Charles and Ray Eames, and Clara Porset. The word translation originally meant "to bring or carry across." The constant migration between California and Mexico has produced cultures of great richness and complexity, while the transfers of people and materials that began with centuries-old trade routes continue to resonate in modern society, creating synergies that are "found in translation".

Description: New Haven: Yale University Press for Mercatorfonds, 2017. 30cm., hardcover, 224pp., 300 color illus. Exhibition held at Groeningemuseum, Bruges. English text.

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

Description: Berkeley: University of California Press, 2017. 24cm., hardcover, 384pp. illus.

Summary: What does it mean to render the processes of making art—cutting, pasting, and projecting light—as a series of metaphors for how we think and how we live? And why would an artist embark on such an enterprise? This book considers how renowned artist William Kentridge spins the material operations of the studio into a web of politically astute and historically grounded metaphors, likening erasure to forgetting, comparing animation to the flux of history, and marshaling drawing as a form of nonlinear argument. Placing Kentridge’s visual vocabulary and unorthodox methods of production in the context of South Africa’s histories of change, Leora Maltz-Leca explores studio process in all of its metaphoric and philosophical dimensions.

Title: Vibrant Metropolis / Idyllic Nature : KIRCHNER, The Berlin Years
Author: Gianfreda, Sandra (ed)
Price: $54.00
ISBN: 9783777427294
Record created on 10/02/16
Description: Munich: Hirmer, 2017. 27cm., hardcover, 272pp., 210 color illus. Exhibition held at Kunsthaus, Zurich. English text.

Summary: Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880–1938) was one of the most prolific and creative members of the German expressionist movement. His move from Dresden to Berlin in 1911 marked a turning point in his career and ignited the most important and innovative period of his work. Ernst Ludwig Kirchner: The Berlin Years looks in-depth at this significant time during which he produced his most celebrated masterpieces. As Sandra Gianfreda reveals, under the influence of the most modern metropolis in Europe, Kirchner created works whose exaggerated and condensed style could be regarded as a true metaphor for the attitude to life during the early years of the twentieth century. During this time of rapid change, Berlin was not only the center of industry, but it was a metropolis of the arts and encouraged a new kind of hedonism. Berlin vibrated with energy and intellectual questions that Kirchner channeled in his work, creating pictures of breathless, existential directness that challenged conventions of the age. An essential book for fans of Kirchner’s work, it presents his greatest paintings and demonstrates the profound changes in his style that were inspired by his time in Berlin.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, 2017. 32cm., hardcover, 256pp., 210 illus. Exhibition held at Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern (then to The Phillips Collection, Washington, DC).

Summary: Critics have traditionally confined Paul Klee's contribution to American art as one of "spirit," and limited to the works of the New York School and other Abstract Expressionist painters. In fact, Klee's influence on American art is more expansive, as illustrated in this study of ten artists who, through their use of automatic drawing, color field painting, symbols, and pictographs, reveal how Klee's theories and artistic methods contributed to the history of post-war American art. The ten artists explored include familiar names, such as Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell, Mark Tobey, Gene Davis, and Kenneth Noland, as well as lesser-known artists William Baziotes, Norman Lewis, Theodore Stamos, and Bradley Walker Tomlin. The richly-illustrated book features essays exploring Klee's legacy among various schools of American art and a chronology illustrates where and how American artists learned about Klee. It also includes a profile of each artist and their connections to Klee, followed by exquisite reproductions of their works.

Title: Liquidation World : On the Art of Living Absently

Description: Cambridge: MIT Press, 2017. 24cm., pbk., 176pp. illus.

Summary: In Liquidation World, Alexi Kukuljevic examines a distinctive form of subjectivity animating the avant-garde: that of the darkly humorous and utterly disoriented subject of modernity, a dissolute figure that makes an art of its own vacancy, an object of its absence. Shorn of the truly rotten illusion that the world is a fulfilling and meaningful place, these subjects identify themselves by a paradoxical disidentification—through the objects that take their places. They have mastered the art of living absently, of making something with nothing. Traversing their own morbid obsessions, they substitute the nonsensical for sense, the ridiculous for the meaningful. Kukuljevic analyzes a series of artistic practices that illuminate this subjectivity, ranging from Marcel Duchamp’s Three Standard Stoppages to Charles Baudelaire’s melancholia. He considers the paradox of Duchamp’s apparatus in the Stoppages and the strange comedy of Marcel Broodthaers’s relation to the readymade; the comic subject in Jacques Vaché and the ridiculous subject in Alfred Jarry; the nihilist in Paul Valéry’s Monsieur Teste; Oswald Wiener’s interpretation of the dandy; and Charles Baudelaire as a happy melancholic. Along the way, he also touches on the work of Thomas Bernhard, Andy Kaufman, Buster Keaton, and others. Finally, he offers an extended analysis of Danny’s escape from his demented father in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Each of these subjects is, in Freud’s terms, sick—sick in the specific sense that they assume the absence of meaning and the liquidation of value in the world. They concern themselves with art, without assuming its value or meaning. Utterly debased, fundamentally disoriented, they take the void as their medium.
