Описание: In a world where ‘smart’ objects can talk to each other and a gun can be printed with a desktop 3D printer, the conditions for contemporary design are nothing if not surreal. The long-standing interaction between architecture and Surrealism is being reinvigorated by the technological paradigm shift that makes the protocols, concepts and otherworldliness of Surrealism more relevant to architects than the dogmas of architectural modernism. This book charts the development of this fertile relationship, revealing how these ideas are being put to use by contemporary architects in extraordinary ways.
It opens with an introduction on the precursors of Surrealism in the Baroque and Rococo periods, moving into the 20th century through the Symbolists and Dadaists. The four main chapters present the interplay between architecture and Surrealism through the key concepts of the body, the interior space, the house, alternative realities and the environment. Each chapter presents a stunning spectrum of images and features contemporary work that shows the lasting influence of the movement.
In an era of wearable technology and big data, the fascinating possibilities for new worlds, new buildings and new spaces are creating the most exciting futures our architects face. Architecture and Surrealism will show the way.

Описание: Honor Sharrer (1920-2009) was a major art world figure in 1940s America, celebrated for exquisitely detailed paintings conveying subtly subversive critiques of the political and artistic climate of her time. This book offers the first critical reassessment of the artist: a leftist, female painter committed to figuration in an era when anti-Communist sentiment and masculine Abstract Expressionism dominated American culture. Her brightly colored, humorous, and distinctly feminine paintings combine elements of social realism and surrealism to seductive and disquieting effect. This publication is a timely reevaluation of an artist who pushed the boundaries of figurative painting with playfulness and biting wit.

Описание: How might artistic practice offer unique insight into the cataclysmic debacle of war? "Surrealism and the Spanish Civil War" plumbs this provocative question
through an ambitious account of a pivotal period in European cultural history. A new approach to the subject of artists' responses to war, it articulates the relation between artistic
endeavour and politics during periods of social crisis. By scrutinising the widely varying responses to the Spanish Civil War in the work of Miro, Dali, Caballero, Masson and Picasso, this
book investigates Surrealism's efforts to bridge the divide between political thought and political act.
Robin Adele Greeley examines such central works as Miro's "Still Life"
with "Old Shoe" and Dali's "Autumn Cannibalism" in the context of contemporary works and historical events. Only when these images are thus considered, she argues, do they
disclose the role of politics in their manufacture. In so doing, Greeley makes a case for the ambivalent status of visual representation vis-a-vis politics, to claim that politics enters the
image through the formal strategies of artmaking and viewing, while simultaneously resisting that very incorporation.
Volatile topics such as Surrealism's various flirtations with
fascism, the movement's troubled relationship to the Communist Party and the Popular Front, and the distinct development of Spanish versus French Surrealism are closely analysed by
Greeley. She explores how the actuality of shifting politics often undermined carefully constructed visual practices, as in the case of the Catalan nationalism which represented one pole
of Miro's surrealism, or Masson's inability to resolve the tension between a Nietzchean celebration of ecstatic violence and directed political action. The book concludes with a
discussion of Picasso's "Guernica", to reveal the profound role politics played in the constitution of
uernica, not as something to be represented iconographically, but as a 'performative' force remade through the actual process of representation.

Описание: The love affair between fashion and Surrealism began in the Paris of the 1920s when Surrealist artists plundered fashion's imagery for their art, raising fashion beyond the level of mere style to an important expression of culture. This text reveals the extravagent and ingenious creations resulting from this collaboration. It ranges from the shocking Surrealist dresses of Schiaparelli and Dali, and photographic experiments with Surrealist techniques by Horst P. Horst, Cecil Beaton and George Hoyningen-Huene to the work of younger fashion designers, including Olivier Guillemin and Vivienne Westwood, who have all brought Surrealist imagery into clothing and accessories.

Описание: The Wadsworth Atheneum's remarkable collection of 20th-century art is due to a succession of adventurous directors and curators. This volume showcases
the museum's holdings and provides details about their acquisition. The famed Chick Austin, director of the Atheneum from 1929 to 1944, purchased works by Matisse, Picasso, Ernst,
de Chirico and mounted the first Surrealist exhibition in America, leading to the acquisition of works by Miro, Dali, Magritte and others.
Austin's successor, Charles Cunningham,
added works by Stanley Spencer, Henry Moore, Maillol, and Marini. During the late 20th century, examples of American modernists and expressionists such as Georgia O'Keeffe, Arthur
Dove, Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock have also been acquired. Paul Paret situates the Atheneum's remarkable collection in the broader context of the issues and themes of
modernism and surrealism, while Eric Zafran explores Austin's exceptional contacts with the key figures.
