Описание: Inspired by the story of Christ's first miracle as recounted in the Gospel of St. John, Paolo Veronese's dazzling, monumental painting The Wedding at Cana was commissioned to be hung in the refectory of the Benedictine monastery of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice. The artist stages a sumptuous banquet for the wedding guests at Cana, packed with intriguing details: a seemingly endless parade of precious drinking vessels, platters and cake stands containing mouth-watering desserts. Veronese transforms a religious scene into a worldly event, a glamorous ceremony whose participants include not only a colourful bevy of cosmopolitan Venetians of the artist's day, but also a generous sampling of servants, jesters and animals, all of this against the backdrop of magnificent architectural perspectives and luminous skies. Veering from realism to the fantastical, in a virtuoso display of his own vision of art and life, Veronese's masterpiece reserves at least two remarkable surprises, once the true identity of a number of personages is revealed: the bride and groom, and especially the musicians who perform for them.

Описание: Numerous designers have pioneered cutting-edge garments and collections throughout the evolution of fashion. But all too often a lack of obvious fit or purpose has been mistaken for a lack of design sophistication. In an informed defence of innovative fashion, Why You Can Go Out Dressed Like That champions the improbable, the provocative, the uncomfortable and the seemingly ridiculous. Inspired by diverse sources, theories and concepts, as well as futuristic textiles and techniques, the book explores the groundbreaking work of designers who strive to extend the boundaries of their creativity. There are no fixed elements to the 100 designs featured in this book, which range from the cerebral conceptions of Comme des Garcons, to the augmented anatomies of Thierry Mugler and the exaggerated physicality of Thom Brownes broad-shouldered men. The garments do not have to fulfil a function, keep you warm, or increase sexual attraction, nor do they have to beguile or disarm. They do need to have impact at the time of creation and to prove influential in the longer term. Many original designs elicit the response: You cant go out dressed like that!. Marnie Fogg proves decisively that modern fashion is not as outrageous and unwearable as it may seem.
Описание: Mid-twentieth century table radios made primarily of brightly colored plastic represent a relative newcomer to the radio collecting arena. With designs that often resembled contemporary automobile grille and headlight configurations, these affordable radios were made by the major electronics companies as well as dozens of others with lesser known names. These examples of American industrial design and popular culture were once plentiful, and today they can be found at flea markets, garage and house sales, secondhand stores, and "antique" shops specializing in modern design. Colorful and collectible, mid-century table radios are both available and affordable. With more than 430 full color photographs of radios, plus advertisements and black and white vintage photos, this pioneering book is a must for anyone interested in radios, mid-century industrial design, or popular culture.
Описание: Crab Monsters, Teenage Cavemen, and Candy Stripe Nurses is a revealing, outrageously rollicking, gorgeously designed book about the career and films of Roger Corman: one of the most prolific, successful, and influential independent producers, directors, and writers in the history of Hollywood, and self-proclaimed king of the "B" movie. As told by Corman himself and the famous figures who got their starts in show business with him, including Peter Bogdanovich, James Cameron, David Carradine, Francis Ford Coppola, Robert De Niro, Jonathan Demme, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Ron Howard, Jack Nicholson and Martin Scorsese, this comprehensive oral history takes readers behind the scenes of more than six decades of American film history, as now legendary directors and actors candidly unspool anecdotes as though reminiscing together at a Hollywood cocktail party--continually one upping each other and lovingly recalling the years before their big breaks. Crab Monsters is supplemented with dozens of full page, full color reproductions of classic Corman movie posters; never before published, behind the scenes photographs and ephemera (many taken from Corman's personal archive); and critical essays on Corman's most daring and influential films--including Little Shop of Horrors, Death Race 2000, Piranha, A Bucket of Blood, and more--that make the case for Corman as an artist like no other.
Описание: A visual account of the birth of graffiti and street art, showcasing as-yet-unseen works collected by preeminent artist Martin Wong. Referred to by the New York Times as an artist "whose meticulous visionary realism is among the lasting legacies of New York’s East Village art scene of the 1980s," Martin Wong (1946–1999) was firmly entrenched in the NYC street art world of the late ’70s and ’80s. City as Canvas chronicles the most important chapter in the street art movement and the artists involved. Showcasing Wong’s enormous graffiti art collection, the book contains artwork, photographs, black books, letters, postcards, posters, and flyers made by Wong and his artist friends. The book contains previously unpublished art by famous street artists such as Futura 2000, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Christopher "Daze" Ellis, LA II, Lady Pink, and Keith Haring, to name only a few. City as Canvas traces the origins of urban self-expression and the era of "outlaw" street art in New York, which primed the floodgates for graffiti art to spread worldwide. Exhibition Schedule: Museum of the City of New York: Opens October 2013
