Love CONTEMPORARY ART MEETS AMOUR CURATED BY DANILO ECCHER

Art is always a great declaration of love. Through the works of the most important contemporary artists—including Robert Indiana, Tom Wesselmann, Andy Warhol, Tracey Moffatt, Francesco Clemente, Marc Quinn, Gilbert & George, Francesco Vezzoli, and Vanessa Beecroft—and essays by Danilo Eccher, Federico Vercellone, Pierangelo Sequeri, Mattia Fumanti, and Woody Allen, this book deals with one of the universally recognized feelings and source of inquiries and representations, love, telling the different facets and endless variations. A happy love, waiting, misunderstood, hated, ambiguous, transgressive, childish, which winds along an unconventional exhibition, featuring visual and perceptual inputs.

Friedel Dzubas THE SIZE OF LIFE EDITED BY PATRICIA L. LEWY

The first scholarly monograph dedicated to artist Friedel Dzubas. Friedel Dzubas (1915–1994) was one of the strongest abstract painters of his time. There has for a long time been a need for a serious study of Dzubas’s art, one that would be deeply researched, would throw new light on his formative experiences and intermittent crises, would understand his involvement with certain art of the past (in particular the great eighteenth-century master G. B. Tiepolo), be cognizant of the critical literature, and, most important, would give his highly original paintings the close and sustained attention they deserve. Thanks to this important and richly illustrated monograph, Dzubas stands revealed as a figure not just of depth and fascination but also of significant achievement. CONTEMPORARY ART 288 pages, 95 x 115” 120 color and 30 b/w illustrations HC: 978-88-572-3389-5 $55.00 Can: $75.00 October 24, 2017 Rights: US/Canada, Latin America SK I R A

Director Patricia L. Lewy, PhD, works under the auspices of the Friedel Dzubas estate.
