The third volume in the Skira “Photography” series serving as a major reference in the field

Publication September 2013

he third volume of Skira’s “Photography” series focuses on the years 1941–1980, marked by the revolution of colour that meant the start of a radical change in the very nature of amateur photography. At the same time, through photojournalism photography became a mirror of society and a tool for attempts to change it. This monograph traces the historical evolution of photography, focusing on artists such as Helen Levitt, Weegee, Robert Doisneau, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Josef Sudek, William Klein, Robert Frank, Richard Avedon, Shomei Tomatsu, William Eugene Smith, Gerhard Richter, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Ugo Mulas, Ed Ruscha, Larry Clark, just to name a few. The essays provide an in-depth discussion of some of the primary themes of the historical period: the evolution of documentary photography between 1950 and 1980, the revolution of colour and the relationship between photography and conceptual art.

A beautiful monograph on an unconventional photographer who developed a deeply personal vision of the world surrounding him

Publication October 2013

Exhibition Schedule Modena, Ex Ospedale Sant’Agostino 13 September 2013 14 January 2014

alter Chappell (1925–2000) is considered one of the foremost figures in twentieth-century American photography. His thinking and vision of the world were closely connected with the intimistic and spiritual explorations undertaken between the 1950s and 1970s by artists like Minor White and Paul Caponigro. Chappell photographed various subjects, but his inner eye was particularly stimulated by the form of the human body and landscapes, as well as the combination of both, through which he endeavoured to perceive the creative flow, the energy that runs through and connects all things. Produced to accompany the first major European retrospective show of Walter Chappell’s work, this catalogue includes over 130 photographs, all originals, as well as the unfinished and previously unpublished album World of Flesh, which the photographer intended as the primary publication on his work.

rom Giselle to Polvere di Baghdad, from La prisonnière to St Prex Classics, the book presents evocative unpublished photographs by Massimo Gatti that capture and bring out many facets of a woman and an artist who appears, to the eye of the beholder, innocent and sensual at one and the same time. “The sense of grace and lightness conveyed by Eleonora Abbagnato’s bearing is further enhanced by his ability to immortalize the moment and capture the magic of eternity. Massimo Gatti has made photography his personal form of narrative and found his peak of expression in the involuntary poses of a performer who has succeeded with her artistry in astonishing and enchanting audiences all over the world … He blends the interpretive codes of photography with those of dance, and the resulting succession of images can be regarded as a purely visual text that finds expression in the lines drawn by the body of Eleonora Abbagnato.” (from the preface of Giuseppe Tornatore)

ornby Island is a northern Gulf Island sitting within an archipelago, near Vancouver Island on the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada. Less than 12 square miles in size, its unique landscape shelters a population centred on simple life-style, self-reliance and art. Seemingly slightly out of time, its characteristic vernacular buildings still embody the wish to turn against rampant consumerism, pollution and political horror and towards handmade houses, food, clothing and contentment. Land Ends was made during Melissa Moore’s various self-styled long-term residencies on the island, exploring her own “feedback between art and nature”. An enchantment by this particular landscape and its mythology is palpable in this sequence of distinctive works. Through a performative practice, Moore is plunged into the environment, nestling into both the island and its communal dreams. Melissa Moore is a London based artist. She studied at the Manchester Metropolitan University, then at the Royal College of Art; she is now Associate Lecturer at the University of the Arts London. She has exhibited and published internationally.

Photographs by Matteo Guzzini Edited by Moreno Gentili

A photographic journey discovering one of the most fascinating populations in Africa

amburu warriors always greet each other according to a historical memory shared from generation to generation. “Hero supa?”, which means “How are you, hero?”. Matteo Guzzini has followed them just like an “explorer” of ancient, yet modern suggestions, discovering rites and customs of a lifestyle that, when looked at on these pages, creates a sense of astonishment. The colour of sunlight, the food, the sharp weapons and firearms originate a tale of authentic realism that leaves little margin for imagination. It is worthwhile to point out that the author has decided not to retouch the images in order to respect the original colours of this strip of land and its inhabitants. The volume, edited by the artist and concept designer Moreno Gentili, is divided into four chapters, each revealing unknown aspects of the Maasai culture: Ritual, Food, Man and Place recount the myth of individuals who have written the history of their land but who are now struggling to maintain freedom, to avoid being conditioned by a highly anthropized system.

The first monograph conceived for the international market devoted to one of the most important Chinese contemporary artists

Publication July 2013

ang Guangyi is considered one of the symbols of new China, because his work reflects, by means of new expressive forms, the deep social changes the country is experiencing. This monograph reveals for the first time the entire oeuvre of the artist, whose works are are kept in the collections of the major museums and foundations in the world. Though Wang Guangyi’s work has erroneously been associated with Chinese Political Pop, in reality one of the main themes of his art can be found in its relationship to the transcendent. Born in 1957, Wang Guangyi became one of the great stars of contemporary Chinese art thanks to his Great Criticism series. He analysed both the effects of political and commercial propaganda, with a special reference to the Cold War, and the relationship with the Divine. Moreover, his work is rooted in Kant’s aesthetics as a fundamental reference point. The book includes a wide selection of critical essays that have been published since the second half of the 1980s to our days focusing on Wang Guangyi’s work as well as the Chinese artistic panorama.

Publication October 2013

ssembled during the last twenty years, the José Maria Castañé collection of paintings, drawings and prints constitutes a significant panorama of late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Russian art, one of the most exciting phases of modern cultural history. Furthermore, the Castañé collection does not focus exclusively on the avant-garde, Socialist Realism or the dissident movement, but rather offers a broader and sometimes alternative enquiry into the history of the Russian visual arts, acquainting us with often unfamiliar works by luminaries such as Léon Bakst, Aleksandr Deineka and Liubov’ Popova, as well as with less celebrated names such as Aleksandr Chirkov, Nikolai Lapshin and Aleksandr Venedernikov. With full curatorial descriptions, biographies, critical essays and artists’ statements (for the most part, published for the first time in English), Of Peace and War pays homage to the initiative and foresight of a private collector and to the purposefulness and enthusiasm which moulded the selection.

ince his breakthrough in the late 1990s, Tom Friedman has become one of the most influential artists of our times by transforming everyday objects such as toothpicks, toilet paper, hair and sugar cubes into extraordinary works of art. This book gives unique insight into the making of Up in the Air, the largest artwork Friedman has made to date for a solo exhibition at Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall in 2010. This astonishing work consists of nearly a thousand meticulously handcrafted objects suspended from the ceiling at different heights – a project that kept Friedman’s studio busy for over two years. Up in the Air invites the observer to enter into Friedman’s complex and humorous world. Carefully navigating through the multitude of suspended objects, one can discover references to popular culture, science, politics and religion. By posing fundamental philosophical questions, Friedman aims to “slow down the process of looking” in a world of information overload.

Fictionville Rokni Haerizadeh

okni Haerizadeh is a painter known for compositions that weave together ancient fables and literary figures, contemporary film and political history. In the series Fictionville, he violates and perverts photographic media images depicting human suffering into an anthropomorphic Orwellian world of humorous, grotesque, satirical and bitter fairy tales. The title is derived from the 1968 Iranian play Shahr-e-Ghesseh. The suffocation that social and political powers can inflict is recounted through the renowned tale of an elephant forced to redefine its own identity in order to conform to a new community. This publication features a large selection of Fictionville images and stills from the video animation, of which one edition has been recently acquired by Tate Modern, London.

An elegantly written and beautifully illustrated volume that fills a gap in modern and contemporary art in India

Publication November 2013

his book offers a broad narrative of key trends in modern art in India that have emerged from the turn of the twentieth century till the end of the millennium and aims to place modern Indian art in its context of cultural nationalism, formation of art institutions and changing notions of artistic value. The book is divided into two sections. Section one focuses on the first five decades of the twentieth century that introduced new definitions of art practices, shaped by both colonialism and the cultural politics of nationalism. Section two looks at the art scene that emerged in the wake of India’s independence. This period coincides with a new opening towards internationalism across the 1950s. By the 1960s, internationalism loses its thrust by way of research towards native sources of art. Breaking into the digital space, as cultural nomads Indian artists travel across national borders into the space of biennales and triennials. The strong presence of diaspora artists offers a new take on identity and ethnicity while generating new modes of representation.

Mohamed El Baz Edited by Nadine Descendre

An up-to-date monograph devoted to the Moroccan contemporary artist, among the most creative of his generation

aking up a book on Mohamed El Baz means attempting to better understand how an artist observes the world, and learn from this. It means breaking into the reality that is explored by an exceptional intelligence and artistic sensibility. The reader will allow himself to be swept away with El Baz beyond representation into an adventure involving both the mind and the eye. This artistic process is obsessively poetic and has something of Mallarmé about it that descends into an abyss of complexity only to emerge immediately into the light and a new clarity.

arid Belkahia is one of the pioneers of contemporary art in the Maghreb. Beginning in the 1960s, he focused his attention on new ways of self-expression, examining his own identity and relationship with the “other”. Belkahia abandoned the practice of traditional painting to research with copper, which he hammers, burns and oxidizes in order to achieve emblematic traces, undulations and flexible, rhythmic bas-relief effects. Since 1974, Belkahia has also been working on parchment, which he darkens and softens to make it thinner, almost translucent. This results in a sort of purifying process that is essential to his work, setting free an otherwise restrained creative energy. His use of leather is similar to parchment stretched on board, producing his unique totemic icons.

The first international monograph on Britain’s hottest new artist ose Wylie (Kent, 1934) was educated at Goldsmiths College and the Royal College of Art. Her energetic large-scale painting unleashes a sense of freedom and spontaneity. Her images are drawn from memory and inspired by different levels of visual culture – from cartoons to films, daily events and art history. The raw brushstrokes laid on with tremendous physicality and the rough texture of impasto bring a sense of immediacy, and the combination of text and figure connects her work to Jean-Michel Basquiat and Philip Guston. Rose Wylie’s paintings combine simplicity and innocence, though under closer inspection they reveal a complex world of references and stories.

Publication October 2013

he landscape of the Rhine plains speaks volumes of the history of a people who have had to put ethics before aesthetics for survival. It is these echoes of the past and the shades of the place that inform the building principles of the new Jansen Campus. This book recounts the result a two-year extraordinary collaboration between architects and client. The building, a striking new addition to the skyline, is a link between the industrial area and the old town, taking its triangular shapes from the traditional pitched roofs of Oberriet. Attention is focused on the innovative technologies used for the project, which includes new details and materials not yet used in architecture: the façade system, for instance, displays structural glazing details (by Jansen AG) and internal glazed fireproof doors. The building’s heating, ventilation, lighting and energy consumption meet strict Swiss “Minergie” standards, meaning that it has excellent sustainable credentials. Davide Macullo (1965) lives and works in Lugano, Switzerland. After several study visits to Asia, the US and around Europe, he began his working career in the atelier of Mario Botta in 1990 as project architect with responsibility for international projects. He opened his own studio in 2000 and is currently involved in projects in Switzerland, Italy, Holland, Greece, France and South Korea. His work has been widely published and acclaimed both at home and abroad.

Next came the magnificent 2010 exhibition in Paris, beneath the majestic vaults of the Grand Palais; it was then hosted in 2011 by the National Museum in Beijing and subsequently by the Aurora Museum in Shanghai. Nearly 600 masterpieces of Bulgari’s art were thus exhibited for the first time to the general public. Displayed along with special features, as the gorgeous collection that once belonged to Elizabeth Taylor, were archival documents such as photographs, preparatory drawings and film stills, eloquently illustrating the epoch to which each piece belonged.

protagonist of contemporary art ever since he was a boy, sculptor Eliseo Mattiacci, born in 1940, has been attracted by metals and by the spectacular process of welding, which prompted him to create plastic elements among his first works that seem to float in space like open and changing star systems. This monograph considers Mattiacci’s historic adventure starting from the 1960s, when he was close to the international language of Arte Povera and the minimalism of Jannis Kounellis and Eva Hesse, through to the sculptures of the 1980s that were so light and sensitive that they could fit into any context, interacting with the surrounding space. In the book Mattiacci’s artistic path is interwoven with episodes in his life and the historical events of his time: the supporting structure of the volume consists of an illustrated chronology offering readers numerous testimonies of the age, including photographs, texts, invitations, books and poetic declarations.

Lucio Fontana Ambienti Spaziali Architecture Art Environments

or the first time in the US, Lucio Fontana: Environments presents a substantial number of “spatial environments” conceived by the artist between 1948 and 1968, works that can be regarded as forerunners of the environments created by such figures as Allan Kaprow and Robert Irwin and of the “light art” of the likes of Dan Flavin and Bruce Nauman. Six environments are included in the exhibition: Spatial Environment in Black Light, 1948–49; Neon Structure for the 9th Milan Triennale, 1951; Chandelier, 1959–60; Spatial Environment, 1967; Spatial Environment, 1967; and Spatial Environment at Documenta 4, Kassel, 1968. Fontana’s environments are both the natural conclusion of his opening up of space through holes and cuts and the basic key to its understanding, not just in painting and sculpture, but in architecture too.

• Not an exhibition catalogue, but a true book. • It represents a fundamental contribution to the interpretation of the work of Lucio Fontana, aimed at opening up “another”, metaphysical space beyond the canvas. • It reproduces all the works in the exhibition, including drawings, sketches, environments, sculptures and paintings from 1948 to 1968, but starts out from a little further back in time, including a number of works dating from 1931. Germano Celant has been Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York from 1989 to 2008. Internationally known for his writings on Arte Povera, he has been a contributing editor at Artforum since 1977 and at Interview since 1991. Among his books: Anselm Kiefer: Salt of the Earth (Skira, 2012); Louise Bourgeois: The Fabric Works (Skira, 2011) and many others. 51

Through more than 200 works, the representation and pictorial meaning of the window in Western art ince the Renaissance, the window has been both a metaphor and an essential conceptual tool in Western painting. A Window on the World seeks to thoroughly analyze the gradual changes which have occurred in the representation and pictorial meaning of the window, in particular in the course of the twentieth century. It explores the radical change in perspective whereby artists developed and offered us a “global vision”, a formal perception freed from the need to imitate the objective world. The catalogue is structured into four main sections: Historical introduction, Seeing through, Grids, From the Window to the Screen. These sections include specific analysis of artists who have chosen the window as the privileged means of their research, as well as an investigation of recurrent themes such as the fascinating relationship between window and still life. Among the artists: Marcel Duchamp, Albrecht Dürer, Johann Heinrich Füssli, Florence Henri, Paul Klee, August Macke, René Magritte, Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko.

A Window on the World From Dürer to Mondrian and Beyond

The Storytellers Narratives in International Contemporary Art Edited by Selene Wendt

A catalogue inspired by the tradition of Latin American literature and authors such as Amado, Borges, Neruda he unique storytelling tradition which characterizes Latin American literature has influenced many contemporary artists around the world. Within this context, it is interesting to investigate the work of contemporary artists who are inspired not only by these authors, but by literature and poetry in general, as seen in works that are typically highly narrative. The artworks featured, by Monika Bravo, Ryan Brown, Tracey Snelling, William Kentridge, Vik Muniz and Ernesto Neto, are not literal interpretations of these stories, but all allude in some way to literature and poetry. The cross between text and image, poetry and poetic subject matter creates a strong thread that ties the works together. The book includes essays by leading scholars within the field of international contemporary art. Among them Mario Vargas Llosa, Gerardo Mosquera, Ute Meta Bauer, Olu Oguibe.

orking fearlessly during the last ten years of her life, Louise Bourgeois makes a final incursion into her personal memories and yet universal concerns about art and the experience of being a woman in the twentieth century. Through her sculptures, large drawings, prints, assemblages, cells, as well as her writings, she deals with her demons, abruptly and exhaustively, with the distance or intensity of experience, questioning or bearing witness to a life and an oeuvre that will leave their indelible mark on our century. The aim of the project is to show the last ten years of Louise Bourgeois’s work, her private and everlasting interest in Freud and how she reflected it in her art and diaries.

Socialist Realisms Great Soviet Painting 1920–1970 Matthew Bown, Matteo Lanfranconi

ocialist Realism was and remains an exceptional phenomenon in twentieth-century art. By glorifying the social role of art, affirming the primary value of content hjhjjghgghas opposed to form and restoring the central role of traditional practices, Socialist Realism was the declared opponent of the Modern Movement. Conceived and created by by great Russian artists, theseprogrammippppiuhfbefhvnnnnnpppf works offer a multiplicity of issues, themes and formal approaches to art, spanning from the final phases of the civil war to Brezhnev. A non-monolithic view emerges, in which this artistic trend is not exclusively considered as the product of totalitarian control and political pressure, but as a living and evolving organism that reflected internal issues and echoed the great historic events of the twentieth century.

The Catalogue raisonné of the works of Enrico Castellani is the most significant and comprehensive publication ever devoted to the artist; divided into two volumes, it aims to provide a full overview of the output of one of the major exponents of the international art scene over the last fifty years. The first volume includes over 200 images of artworks from 1958 to the present. Introduced by a detailed essay by Bruno Corà and a text by Marco Meneguzzo, the first volume includes Castellani’s main writings and a selection of photos. The second volume contains the catalogue raisonné of over 1,000 works produced between 1955 and 2005, retracing the first five decades of Castellani’s oeuvre.

Mimmo Paladino Sculpture 1980–2008 Edited by Enzo Di Martino Specifications Size 91/2 x 12 in. (24 x 30 cm) 488 pages, 315 colour and 478 b/w illustrations hardcover with slipcase ISBN 978-88-572-0419-2 £ 165.00, $ 260.00, Can. $ 316.00

Mimmo Paladino, born in 1948, lives in a phase of scission that is reflected in his artistic production, collaborations and innovations. Alongside painting, sculpture is a fundamental part of his work. With more than 400 sculptures, this volume documents his entire plastic work. The cataloguing is divided into sections: individual sculptures, installations, relationship sculpture/architecture and project work in urban spaces. The research and documentation for all the works are by Enzo Di Martino, who is also the author of the historical-critical essay. Included are a summary of works and an essential illustrated biography of the artist. This catalogue raisonné is an indispensable tool for collectors.

Pomodoro’s monumental sculptures have been installed throughout the world, from the Sfera grande for the Montreal Expo to the versions of Sfera con sfera at the Vatican and United Nations Headquarters, New York, the Papyrus, Darmstadt and Novecento, Rome. This general catalogue covers the full range of works produced by the artist from 1953 to the present, supplemented with the first complete documentary research into the entire existing bibliography. The catalogue is the result of studies of the Arnaldo Pomodoro Archives and represents the first stage in the cataloguing of the artist’s entire body of work.

The History of the Nude Flaminio Gualdoni

rom the Palaeolithic “Great Mothers” to the Greek athletes, from Titian’s Venus of Urbino to Leonardo’s Virtuvian Man, from the Odalisque by Boucher to those by Ingres, to the amazons of Helmut Newton and the desolate lifeless bodies of Andres Serrano, the nude is the theme of artistic representation par excellence. The nude body as the incarnation of perfect beauty and the ban imposed by Christian culture; the renewed triumph of ancient beauty in the Renaissance and the study of anatomy; the eighteenth-century visual licentiousness and the photographic nude; ideal beauty, eroticism, pornography; then, the nude as a representation of the ugly and its flaunted truthfulness in twentiethcentury art; and finally, the nude that itself becomes a work of art in post-WWII avantgarde, with performance, body art and experimental theatre. These are the threads of the narration, conducted around a rich apparatus of images. After Art of the Twentieth Century, published by Skira in four languages in 2009, Flaminio Gualdoni has now created a richly illustrated new reference book that is also extremely enjoyable to read.

F

• Highly documented on the historical plane but not burdened by excessive academic heaviness. • A historical and cultural context through which to explore the theme. • A rich apparatus of images. Flaminio Gualdoni is Professor of History of Ancient Art at the Accademia di Brera, Milan. He is a contributing editor of The Art Newspaper and author of a number of books on art history.

Klimt SkiraMiniARTbooks series Federica Armiraglio

The end of a world in the masterpieces of the great protagonist of the Viennese Secession ustav Klimt (1862–1918) was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Art Nouveau (Viennese Secession) movement. His works include paintings, murals, sketches and other art objects, on display in the major museums of the world. Klimt’s primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism.

iziano Vecellio was a remarkably versatile painter, equally comfortable with a wide range of genres and subjects. Unlike many artists from history whose work has been appreciated only after their death, Titian enjoyed fame and success throughout his career, which spanned over seven decades. Based in Venice, Titian received commissions from a number of local patrons and the Venetian government, as well as many distinguished figures from further afield, such as the Pope, the German Emperor and the King of Spain. This small book is a perfect introduction to the work of this original and influential Renaissance artist.

kbar the Great is considered one of the most splendid sovereigns of mankind. Though being himself an illiterate, he was a great protector of poetry and literature, the builder of the grandiose capital Fatehpur Sikri, the City of Victory, and the promoter of a new style in arts and crafts. His deep religious tolerance even brought him to attempt the creation of a syncretistic religion bringing together Islam and Hinduism. The catalogue illustrates all these aspects, covering the court life, describing the development of arts and crafts, and showing the military glory through over 100 works, including paintings and calligraphies, precious textiles, costumes and carpets, arms and armours, jewels from the most important Indian, European and American museums and collections. The author references the latest in art historical scholarship, but this book is also aimed at readers who may not have specialist knowledge or extensive familiarity with Indian culture.

his richly illustrated publication presents a reconstruction of the history of the Pharaohs and their people through original documents and observations by some of the most famous Egyptologists of the present and the past. The authors trace the history of the spread of Egyptian “myth” and the birth of Egyptology, as well as describing the greatest archaeological discoveries in the nineteenth and early twentieth century – to the gold of Tutankhamun and the silver of the Pharaohs of Tanis. Archival material, photographs, drawings, ancient and rare books are presented for the first time in this work. A must for enthusiasts of ancient Egypt and the history of Egyptology, but also a publication for collectors, bibliophiles and those interested in antique photography and the history of culture.

Saying that an architectural form is naked is a typical affirmation of everyday language that synthesizes multiple characters and meanings through a metaphor. Anti-decorative architecture of modern tradition is naked, buildings under construction or ruined are naked, as are in general those whose bare, essential appearance is intended to give an impression of sincerity. Today, the return to nakedness in architecture may be interpreted as the symptom of the definitive crisis of post-modernism, of its masks and coverings that no longer represent this world and its ever-increasing need for “naked” essentialness. Featuring many of the world’s most highly acclaimed architects, the book presents fifty of the most recently completed and influential “naked” designs.

The experience he acquired in those years offered him the possibility of following his peculiar experimental vocation that was to also distinguish his work as an architect, and of carrying forward research intended to investigate the expressive possibilities of glass. Under Scarpa’s artistic direction the forms created at Venini glassworks were more sober and modern, geometrically-inspired, and above all, the importance of the designer’s role was established in the history of twentieth-century Venetian glass, which owes to him much of its substantial renewal.

• Around 300 works, documents and original drawings from private collections and museums from all over the world. • The book accompanies the first venue of the exhibition Le stanze del vetro at Fondazione Cini, Venice, in coincidence with the Biennale of Architecture 2012. • Full of images detailing all aspects of the designer’s work and sensibility. • The visual narrative of this book provides an instructive look at the process of design. Marino Barovier is an author and independent curator. He was born in Venice into one of the oldest families of Murano glassmakers. In 1983, he joined his wife Marina in the study of the history of twentieth-century Murano glass. 74


Cleto Munari and Friends Marco Fazzini This book documents and illustrates the latest creations of Cleto Munari who, following on his work with silver, jewellery, watches, fountain pens and furniture, brought together a group of ten artists and designers to create a unique collection of art carpets, which succeed in combining craftsmanship, advanced working techniques and captivating chromatic variety. As Cleto Munari himself likes to say, his world is one where every object is born and lives as “pure poetry”. Every carpet in this collection is appealing to the eye and emanates a silent glow, so that the distant horizons of desire can be reached through the dawn’s loom.

From Picasso to Jeff Koons The Artist as Jeweler Edited by Diane Venet. Essays by Adrien Goetz and Barbara Rose Numerous leading twentieth-century artists showed an interest in jewellery, often through love of a woman, or for their daughters. Despite the opening of art from the 1910s onwards to the abstract and the conceptual, they happily bridged the gap that seemed to be deepening between art and craftsmanship. The collection of Diane Venet, which she regularly exhibits, is set out like a veritable intimate museum, narrating a specific history of art. This fascinating book features over 200 pieces of jewellery designed by the greatest artists of the twentieth and twenty-first century, among whom Picasso, Warhol, Niki de Saint Phalle, Kapoor, Soto, Louise Bourgeois, Spoerri…

French Design Creativity as Tradition Alain Lardet, Anne Bony The transformation of an intention in an object is the result of a meeting between a designer and a craftsman. The French know-how societies were born from Colbertism and were closely associated with the evolution of French society. Retracing the history of the most prestigious French firms and highlighting their capacity to reinvent themselves, this volume also aims to reveal and stress the unique qualities of craftsmanship. The history and the excellence of 25 leading brands, such as Baccarat, Christofle, Hermès, St. Dupont, are traced out thanks to some major research in archives, but also through the words of the protagonists and a photographic album of the objects.

Mannequins as symbols but also as objects for communication. Outright protagonists of the figurative arts and an ineluctable go-between for fashion when it needs to tell its own story: in the window displays of international shopping or under the vaults of museums where the evolution of style and stylists is exhibited. Bonaveri has been a careful and creative interpreter of this universe for the past sixty years: the company is known worldwide for its mannequin collections and constitutes a successful example of the Made in Italy heritage. Testimonies given by art and fashion historians and interviews with the leading figures in the fashion system, all framed by a sophisticated and rich iconography, reveal the secrets of the success, history and allure of these objects, only apparently soulless.

From nudes to landscapes, a wide-ranging retrospective of the work of Edward Weston, one of the greatest twentieth-century American photographers

dward Weston (Highland Park, Illinois, 1886 – Wildcat Hill, California, 1958) began to take photographs at the age of 16 and in 1911 opened his first photographic studio in the town of Tropico, California. He became an increasingly important figure on the American art scene, so much so that in 1936 he was the first photographer to receive a research grant from the Guggenheim Foundation. In 1946 the MoMA in New York gave him a major retrospective, showing 300 works and thus definitively confirming him as one of the great artists of the twentieth century. Often directly compared to painting and sculpture, Weston’s photography is the expression of a relentless quest for pureness, both in composition and in the almost obsessive perfection of the image. This catalogue, published to accompany an exhibition in Modena, the first show in Italy after twenty years, celebrates Weston’s extraordinary oeuvre with over 120 original photographic prints.

E

• Over 100 original photographic prints, mostly from the Centre for Creative Photography in Tucson, which holds Weston’s largest archive. • All Weston’s favourite subjects, from nudes to landscapes, through a gallery of portraits and “objects” – from the famous peppers to traditional toys – which he transforms into surrealist and postmodern icons. Filippo Maggia teaches History of Contemporary Photography and Design at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Turin. Among his titles published by Skira: Araki Gold (2008), New Photography in Britain (2008), Daido Moriyama (2010), Yasuzo Nojima (2011). 78

An impressive retrospective covering the last fifty years of Don McCullin’s work on McCullin (London, 1935) is one of the most important photographers of our time. For more than 50 years, his uncompromising black-andwhite photographs have shaped our awareness and understanding of modern conflict, and its consequences. These images tell the remarkable story of his life and work, including most famous assignments in Berlin, Vietnam, Cambodia, Biafra, Bangladesh and the Middle East. Winner of the Warsaw Gold Medal and the World Press Photographer Award, he received the ICP Cornell Capa Award in 2006. The key periods in McCullin’s life, including his renowned work for the Sunday Times, are explored here alongside more recent projects with Christian Aid, his photographs of last tribes in the Omo River Valley, South Kenya and Irian Jaya, New Guinea and, in the last few years, still lifes and English landscapes at his home in Somerset. A photographic journey across the ruins and landscapes of the Roman Empire boundaries completes the volume.

Mighty Silence. Images of Destruction The Great 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami of East Japan and Fukushima Photographed by Yasushi Handa

A personal, luminous and moving account of post-tsunami Japan n extraordinary photographic report by the famous Japanese fashion photographer Yasushi Handa on the thunderous tsunami that swept through the Tohoku region on the heels of the Great East Japan Earthquake, which struck on 11 March 2011. The images capture the landscape 20 days after the ocean water had retreated. The tsunami engulfed cities and towns that thrive on fishing and agriculture, along the Pacific coastlines of Aomori, Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures. It spared no one and no thing. Over 18,000 people were killed or went missing. Taken with a 65-million pixel camera, the pictures are almost surreal because they capture details missed by the naked eye. What we’ve typically seen in the media are people determined to move beyond their misfortune, to deepen their ties with the community and overcome the overwhelming adversity; in contrast, this book puts the harsh reality first and forefront.

A collection of some two hundred cartoons dedicated in various ways to The Beatles from all latitudes

Includes exclusive double poster

enuine icons of pop culture, like Marilyn and Coca-Cola, the Beatles were fated to meet up with the world of comics. For the first time this book documents the interest that cartoonists, publishers and enthusiasts have shown in their special approach to the universe of comic strips; a rich and variegated relationship with thousands of publications, in every part of the world, and a production that continues to the present day. In some stories the Beatles are the protagonists, in others they make cameo appearances, while others feature their lyrics transformed into comic strips. Published on the 50th anniversary of their first single (Love Me Do) in early September 2012, the book celebrates the band with an original approach and honours the legend that endures through the years and changing fashions.

G

• The book features cartoons from all over the world (United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, South America, France, Germany and Italy). • Nothing of this kind has ever been published in this form anywhere in the world. • Double colourful poster inside. Enzo Gentile, journalist and music critic, has contributed to innumerable journals, written books and produced radio and television programmes, exhibitions and festivals devoted to the music of our time. Fabio Schiavo has been a professional journalist since 1990 and an editor at Rolling Stone Italia since 2004. A Beatles fan, he owns one of the largest collections of comic strips featuring the Fab Four.

Fifty-six international designers and architects celebrate the Hogan label’s most recent collections here is an obvious connection between the different forms of creative expression: this is the core philosophy Hogan transmits in the Future Roots project. 56 internationally famous designers and architects are captured in Ornella Sancassani’s photographs wearing the most recent collections designed by the fashion label. Future Roots is therefore a story in pictures in which the different aspects of planning in design, architecture, fashion and photography are brought to the fore, showing little distinction between sectors. The leading players in Italian and international contemporary architecture are here portrayed in photographs. Among them: Richard Meier, Tadao Ando, Jean Nouvel, Norman Foster, Santiago Calatrava, Zaha Hadid. The book is bound in refined Bodonian binding with a silver colour cover and a cloth spine printed in lithography: a truly unique collector’s item.

Like other divas of the silver screen (Audrey Hepburn, Greta Garbo), Marilyn loved to wear Salvatore Ferragamo shoes. The exhibition and catalogue dedicated to her are the result of long research and preparatory work, presenting items from the actress’s wardrobe – worn on the set or in her private life – as well as important documents that reveal her managerial side, her skill and determination in building and grooming her success. A well-endowed collection of photographs of Marilyn taken in her day-to-day life is juxtaposed with the power of the archetype and the endurance of the myth, the greatness of which perhaps resides in the star’s double nature, as spiritualized female and pop icon.
