Описание: Collage is as topical as ever. The Age of Collage Vol. 2 is a striking collection of work that ranges from subversive to museum-worthy. While some examples make explicit statements, others are gloriously Dada. Bringing disparate images and items together, collage transcends the boundaries between artistic disciplines. The traditionally analog technique has its roots in surrealism and Dada. Having effortlessly evolved to embrace digital tools and the combinatory freedom that they offer, collage is now making a promising comeback. The Age of Collage Vol.2 presents the work of more than 80 collage artists -- from established names including John Baldessari and Richard Prince to up-andcoming talents such as Lola Dupre. A follow- up to The Age of Collage, the book is a comprehensive showcase of the surprising diversity of this genre today."

Описание: Twice Drawn brings together an eclectic range of drawings from the last half-century to explore the influence and vigor of this pervasive yet commonly overlooked practice. Providing a contextual depth often lost in large group surveys, this book begins with beautiful reproductions of two stand-out drawings each from over 50 artists. The book then mixes those drawings with hundreds more works that are thematically arranged by traditional genres and less conventional principles, offering alternative ways to examine relationships among style, contemporaneity, and chronology. Artists include mid-century stalwarts like Philip Guston and Ellsworth Kelly, established draftsmen such as Brice Marden and Lee Bontecou, and a younger generation of artists like Dawn Clements and Chris Ofili. In addition, the book focuses on the work of four artists: Lee Lozano, Ed Ruscha, Jim Shaw, and Susan Turcot.

Описание: Affordable housing for the masses has been an age-old problem that some of the best minds in the world have tried to solve. Never was it more critical than after World War II, when many cities and economies were wiped clean and the worldquite literallyneeded to be rebuilt. It was during this time that modern ideas led the way to the future. Modern Tract Homes of Los Angeles touches on the history of modern architecture and explores five housing tracts built between 1948 and 1964. Through these unique tracts, we gain an understanding of what the postwar climate was like and learn why modern houses still remain relevant today as new homeowners are drawn to their aesthetic and original homeowners continue to enjoy them more than half a century later.

Описание: The technique of collage fits perfectly into our current age. Raw visual material is collected by an artist and then combined in such a way as to abstract the individual elements enough that the artist's own vision becomes prominent. Because collage s references range from other artistic works and techniques to scientific images, pop culture, and erotica, these raw materials reflect humanity's collective visual memory and context. It's collage's broad scope and irreverence that make this technique so interesting for both artist and audience. So it comes as no surprise that a lively scene has developed around contemporary collage in the last few years. Our book Cutting Edges was the first to document work by this scene, which has continued to expand the possibilities of the genre. Beyond the lowbrow movement, which brings a fresh perspective to figurative surrealism, more and more established artists are now embracing this medium. Their work bridges the historical gap between the classic pioneers of the technique from the 1920s and today's vanguard of contemporary collage. Showcasing outstanding current artwork and artists, The Age of Collage is a striking documentation of this new appetite for destructive construction. The book also takes an insightful behind-the-scenes look at those working with this interdisciplinary and cross-media approach. While illustration, painting, and photography continue to fundamentally influence collage, the featured work also plays with elements of abstraction, constructivism, surrealism, and dada. Collage gives artists more room to stake out diverse artistic positions than almost any other existing technique. Through confident cuts, brushstrokes, mouse clicks, or pasting, collage gives the impossible a tangible form while turning our worldview on its head along the way. In their visual confrontation with reality in our digital age, which has already made geographic, temporal, and artistic boundaries obsolete, these artists celebrate and exaggerate simultaneousness.

interest on the part of scholars and collectors the world over. This book focuses on the activity of the numerous manufacturing companies that were founded and that developed from
the outset of the century, and the personalities that were responsible for its often profound renewal: Carlo Scarpa, Gio Ponti, Ettore Sottsass, followed by the Memphis Group, as well as

Описание: We need art more than ever before. We live in a time when we try to deal with our problems and try to describe our world through words, figures and logic. But to understand humans and to look at the bigger shifts the tectonic plate shifts in the human condition, so to speak we need to rise above, or go below, the 24/7 news cycle, and we need art to give us a different language to understand the human condition. Kasper Holten, Director of Opera, Royal Opera House, London Majida Mouasher owned an art gallery called 4 Walls, in Amman, Jordan between 2000 and 2006. During that time she worked with more than ninety artists, 45 of whom form the nucleus of her beautiful and important private collection comprised of contemporary art from the Middle East in general and the Levant in particular, spanning over sixty years of superb quality art. In Jordan at the time there were mostly foundations or institutions, and only very few contemporary art galleries. The artists depended mostly upon their own personal efforts and contacts in order to promote themselves. There was a vacuum that needed to be filled and a public that wanted to see contemporary art and get to know the artists. The aim of 4 Walls was to promote the artists by exhibiting and helping sell their works. During that period, Majida Mouasher bought consistently work from these artists. What makes this collection so special, is that even though it is concentrated on the Levant, it is very diverse. The artists in the collection have deep cultural roots from whatever the origin of their inspiration is; be it China, Russia, the West or their country of origin. Though many of them are now living in the diaspora, they all share in common an honest reaction to their environment, their cultural and social or historical backgrounds, their ethnic origins or political upheavals. Due to the wars and upheavals in the Middle East, people are moving across countries and to the shorelines of Europe, bringing with them new and different cultural ways. Now that the Middle East is so much in the spotlight, there is an urgency to show its contemporary art to the Western public. Art can bypass conflicts and bring more and better understanding between cultures. The artists in the collection and presented in this book are: Chafik Abboud Nawal Abdallah Adonis Nasr Abdul Aziz Saadi Al Kaabi Nuha Al Radi Shaker Hassan Al Said Rajwa Ali Hani Alqam Clara Amado Mohammad Al-Ameri Jamal Ashour Dia Azzawi Khaled Barakeh Kamal Boullata Diana Chamounky Hiram Charib Ghada Dahdaleh Dodi Muhanna Durra Ismail Fattah Ghassan Ghaeb Riham Ghassib Samia Halaby Himat Farouk Kaspaulis Ammar Khammash Khalid Khreis Sadik Kwaish Alfraji Halim Mahdi Fouad Mimi Mohammad Nasrallah Rafa Nassiri Joman Nimri Said Nusseibih Mahmoud Obaidi Karim Rissan Khalil Ryyan Nabil Shehadeh Rula Shukairy Samer Tabbaa Mahmoud Taha Madiha Omar Samer Ussama (Samer Hatam) Wijdan Nazar Yahya The book will contain in-depth texts from: Luit Mols Ph.D., owner of Sabiel Research, Curating, Education and Consultancy in Islamic Art; Nada M.
