An exciting array of protective hardware (armour, barriers, wearable weaponry) and protective "software" (charms, amulets, talismans), reveal a broad range of strategies for human defence. Focusing on work from the twenty-first century, this captivating book features some of todays finest artists and metalsmiths and testifies to the continued relevance of this creative pursuit. An introductory essay charts the wider cultural terrain of protective ornament--touching on issues of history, anthropology, and psychology, while portfolio sections spotlight subsets of defensive and offensive wear.

Located in the Raval neighborhood of Barcelona, MACBA forges a dialogue with the historic urban quarter.

As befits an institution devoted to modern and contemporary art, the museum synthesizes the striking innovation of its rationalist architecture and the accrued history of its context. Offering detailed information on every aspect of the project, this publication features a full-page photographic essay by renowned Spanish photographer Aleix Bagu xE9;, as well as an in-depth interview with Meier.

Описание: This volume provides a fresh look at The Museum of Modern Art's collection of painting and sculpture as it stands in 2015. The Museum's present holdings are the result of almost 90 years of collaborative effort between its curators and trustees, and the nearly 300 objects represented in this book affirm the convictions of the Museum's founders in 1929, who believed that modern art rivals in its greatness the art of any previous era. The catalogue opens with an essay by Ann Temkin, the Marie-Josee and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture, which addresses the historical construction of the Museum's collection and explores the shifting issues that have guided its acquisitions. The thoughtful selection of the works included in this catalogue highlights the range of artworks and ideas that constitute the evolving foundation of the Museum's collection. The cumulative result of decades of collection-building is chronicled in the richly illustrated pages, including the legendary favorites of the collection, such as Vincent van Gogh's "Starry Night" (1889), Pablo Picasso's "Girl Before a Mirror" (1932) and Andy Warhol's "Gold Marilyn Monroe" (1962). The selection also celebrates lesser-known masterworks that underscore the vast breadth of the collection, such as Diego Rivera's "Agrarian Leader Zapata" (1931), Horace Pippin's "Abe Lincoln, The Great Emancipator" (1942) and Niki de Saint Phalle's "Shooting Painting American Embassy" (1961). The story continues through to the present, including landmark works such as Gerhard Richter's "October 18, 1977" (1988), Kara Walker's "Gone: A Historical Romance of a Civil War as It Occurred b'tween the Dusky Thighs of One Young Negress and Her Heart" (1994) and Cai Guo-Qiang's "Borrowing Your Enemy's Arrows" (1998). With 126 years spanning the distance between the works on the first and last pages of the book, Painting and Sculpture offers the opportunity to immerse oneself in the multitude of artistic approaches encompassed under the banner of modern art.

Описание: Portuguese architect lvaro Siza (born 1933) is one of the most influential architects of the past half-century. His most famous work is perhaps the Serralves Museum in his hometown of Porto, his second museum building, following the Galician Center for Contemporary Art, erected in 1997. Low built and horizontal in axis, its white stucco walls are perforated with occasional openings that yield unexpected views of a surrounding garden. As with most of Siza's buildings, the furniture and fittings were also designed by the architect, including lighting fixtures, handrails, doorknobs and all signage. Building materials include hardwood floors and painted walls in gesso with marble skirting in the exhibition halls and marble floors in the foyers. This volume, published in Poligrafa's innovative Museum Building series, reviews the Serralves Museum, a disarmingly intimate space in pronounced contradistinction to much recent museum architecture.
