A

lphonse Mucha was an extraordinarily prolific and versatile artist who made his mark in the diverse fields of design – including posters, jewellery, interior decoration, theatre, packaging and product design – as well as in painting, book illustration, sculpture and photography. He is one of the best-known Czech artists to broad international audiences today and rose to international fame in fin-de-siècle Paris with his elegant designs for theatre posters for Sarah Bernhardt, the most famous French actress of the time, and decorative panels (panneaux décoratifs) featuring gracefully posed women. For those posters Mucha created a distinctive style – “le style Mucha” – characterised by harmonious compositions, sinuous forms, organic lines and a muted palette, which became synonymous with the newly emerging decorative style of the time – Art Nouveau. By the time of the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1900, Mucha had become a leading figure in this decorative art movement who defined the look of the era. The catalogue explores the development of Mucha’s career and overall achievements as a multifaceted and visionary artist. It is divided into six sections, highlighting Mucha’s personality as Bohemian; picture maker for people; cosmopolitan; mystic; patriot and philosopher. • Presenting posters, drawings, paintings, decorative works, books and photographs, the monograph traces the influence of Mucha’s Czech roots and his passionate love of his country in all aspects of his career. • The catalogue is published in collaboration with the Mucha Foundation. Tomoko Sato is curator of the Mucha Foundation.

O

ne of the most original contemporary artists and an established leading figure on the international scene, Mimmo Paladino has developed a personal vocabulary regenerated through an overall vision of the creative experience. As he stated in 1985: “Brushes alone are no longer enough for artists. A sort of Total Art is necessary precisely in the light of all the attempts already made.” In his art-historical and critical analysis of Paladino’s work from 1963 to the present, Germano Celant pinpoints his contribution to the renewal of painting, taken first into environments and then also encompassing photography and sculpture, architecture and cinema, opera and theatre. • The most comprehensive monograph on the Italian artist, painter, sculptor and printmaker, one of the leading exponents of Transavanguardia. • The book covers more than fifty years of Paladino’s career. • Paladino has shown work worldwide, including at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. and the Tate Modern in London. • He has also collaborated on many sound and visual art pieces with Brian Eno, the earliest of which, Dormienti, was presented at the Roundhouse in London in 1999. Germano Celant, a renowned art historian, critic and theorist, has served as the curator of hundreds of exhibitions worldwide and published more than one hundred books and catalogues.

abre has created a number of new works especially for this exhibition displaying more than two hundred. Jan Fabre (Antwerp, 1958) is an artist and a director and uses his works to speculate in a loud and tangible manner about life and death, physical and social transformations as well as the nature of cruelty, which is present in both animals and humans. As a grandson of a famous entomologist, Jan Fabre widely uses wildlife aesthetics. He uses beetle shells, animal skeletons and horns as well as stuffed animals and images of animals in various materials. The list of unusual materials goes beyond that and covers blood and BIC blue ink. As emphasized by the painter and acknowledged by critics and researchers, his art goes back to the traditions of classic Flemish art, which he admires: Peter Paul Rubens and Jacob Jordaens are his main inspiration. • The book is edited by the painter himself jointly with Dmitry Ozerkov. • Fabre has created a number of new works especially for this exhibition displaying more than two hundred. • The artist defines himself, lives and expresses himself as a knight of despair and a warrior of beauty. • Fabre uses his works to speculate in a loud and tangible manner about life and death, physical and social transformations as well as the nature of cruelty, which is present in both animals and humans.

T

he breadth and diversity of this Renaissance man’s oeuvre reveals untiring attention to and interest in the culture, art, faces, society and politics of his country. With over 70,000 pictures taken between the 1920s and the 1980s, Domon Ken is considered the supreme master of Japanese photography as well as the main exponent of realism as the only approach possible. Over the years he honed his craft, shifting from propaganda photography during the war to photography as a life’s mission, in search of his own Japan: a fascinating and silent Japan of ancient temples, Buddhist sculptures, puppet theatres (where he took refuge during the war); the seductive and expressive faces of celebrities alongside the modest ones of street urchins; up to the poorest Japan of mining villages and finally his most disturbing and modern work portraying Hiroshima and its unhealed wounds. • The poetry of one of the most renowned Japanese photographers of the 20th century. • Domon Ken, who died in 1990, is venerated in Japan as one of the country’s greatest photographers and a pioneer of realism, but is relatively unknown internationally. • The book features around 150 works dating from the 1920s to the 1970s.

The second catalogue dedicated to international developments in 20th-century glass, after Glass from Finland in the Bischofberger Collection

P

ublished in collaboration with the MAK Vienna and “LE STANZE DEL VETRO”, the volume presents over 300 works from the collection of the MAK Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art in Vienna and private collections. It focuses for the first time on the history of glassmaking in Austria from 1900 to 1937, a period spanning the last decades of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the First Republic. In fact in the early 20th century a group of young architects, designers and fine arts and architecture students developed a special interest in the process of glassmaking. Many of them were to win fame as leading figures in Viennese Modernism, such as Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, Joseph Maria Olbrich, Leopold Bauer, Otto Prutscher, Oskar Strnad, Oswald Haerdtl and Adolf Loos. They paved the way to the first pioneering developments in 20th-century glass production as they worked with the furnaces in order to gain a thorough understanding of the material. The collaboration between architects and designers and the introduction of their innovations to production created the style of Viennese Glass, found in new projects such as the Wiener Werkstätte or the Austrian Werkbund. • With over 300 works, the book focuses on the birth of the art of modern glassmaking in Austria between 1900 and 1937, featuring glass works by the main protagonists of Viennese Modernism. • The story of passion for this delicate material that is both immensely generous in its possibilities and as fragile as our planet Earth. Rainald Franz is curator of the MAK Glass and Ceramics Collection, Vienna.

The official publication Ducati, a proud representative of Made in Italy, dedicates to its 90th anniversary

Publication April 2017

T

he official book to discover Ducati’s world: ninety years of passion and performance. 2016 isn’t just an ordinary year: in fact, it coincides with the 90th anniversary of Ducati, founded on 4 July 1926, almost like a dream, thanks to three brothers – Adriano, Bruno and Marcello Cavalieri Ducati – supported by their father, Antonio. We can rightly call the history of Ducati a dream, because this adventure began in a dark workshop located in the centre of Bologna, on Via Collegio di Spagna 7, when the workforce consisted of two labourers and a secretary. Not even the Ducati brothers probably would have imagined what the future held in store for them and that small workshop. Today, this shop has become a factory of emotions in the shape of motorcycles, the sheer and utmost expression of refined technique, unmistakable design and passion. The essence of Italian style is manifest on each creation. Curvy forms, slender and seducing shapes of timeless style, which for ninety years now has represented the dream of motorcyclists around the world and narrates a story crowned by countless successes, regarding both technique and sports. The history of Ducati is now narrated in a photographic book, which covers the style and design of the motorcycles that wrote it. A collector’s item, don’t miss out! • 90 years of Ducati: an unrivaled record of innovation, Italian style and sport victories since 1926. • The engaging and fascinating story of a great company always driven by passion.

T

he astounding 700 pictures that compose this book have all been digitally altered and feature the artist at various stages of his life and in different moods, poses, states of undress. They range from images of a fresh-faced, innocent-looking boy to pictures of a bearded, sinister older man. Presiding over this autobiographical album – ostensibly a family album, for it begins with some photographs of Samaras’ Greek family – are thirty-four larger-scale photos of the artist as he looks today. Samaras seems to find himself endlessly fascinating; indeed, he is as in love with his image as Narcissus was, absorbed in himself as though no one else existed. Unlike that mythological figure, Samaras hasn’t yet drowned in his image, but death haunts his conciousness. “Old age is a catastrophe,” he once said. His photos are unique in the annals of self-portraiture; only Francis Bacon’s come close to them in traumatic intensity and self-distorting suffering. • Samaras’s photos are unique in the annals of self-portraiture; only Francis Bacon’s come close to them in traumatic intensity and self-distorting suffering. • “The photographs are in effect mementos of a life devoted to making art and – more importantly – to gaining self-knowledge throught art, using art as an instrument for self-analysis.” (Artforum, September 2015 - Donald Kuspit) • A meditation on the meaning and purpose of life and art. Donald Kuspit is one of America’s most distinguished art critics and a professor. He is a contributing editor to Artforum, Sculpture, New Art Examiner and tema celeste magazines as well as editor of Art Criticism.

T

he catalogue of the first solo exhibition dedicated to Katerina Jebb, this book presents over a hundred photographs of the artist. The title, Deux ex machina, evokes the effect of the images created from the cold light of a machine to which Katerina Jebb grants the quasi-divine power of creation. Her collaborations with the fashion industry constitute an important part of her work – including her work for the Japanese brand Comme des Garçons or for Christian Lacroix couture. The artist also delves into the themes of portraits and still lifes. The neutral backgrounds isolate the objects and subjects, giving them a solemn appearance. She positions herself at the edge of reality and fiction and plays with the fluidity of genres: are we in front of a fashion photograph or a sacred image, are we in front of a human being or a statue? Katerina Jebb was born in 1962 in England. She currently lives and works in Paris. Her work has been presented and exhibited in many museums and galleries: the Whitney Museum New York (1998), Barbican Art Gallery, London (1999), Musée Galliera, Paris (2014), The Metropolitan Art Museum, Tokyo (2015), among others. In 2015, she took the photographs for the exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris, Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton. • Renowned artist in both the art and fashion sectors. • Essays written by notable photography and fashion critics.

• Mousa’s works are influenced by three religions in perpetual inter-conflict: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. • Mousa draws from a wellspring of inspiration, bearing witness to his cultural heritage. Whether working with painting or mixed-media installation, his art deeply expresses his notions of justice and civil rights. As a result, many of his exhibitions are political, educational, thought-provoking and sometimes controversial. John Cauman, independent scholar and author, is co-curator of the upcoming exhibition, Matisse and American Art at the Montclair Art Museum, to open in February 2017. Oksana Salamatina is founder and owner of the Salamatina Gallery in New York.

his first comprehensive survey of Uribe’s work chronicles his brilliant use of the unexpected (shoes, screws, coloured pencils, hangers) he magically turns into birds of the air, creatures of the jungle and humans, hurt or happy. The book will trace nearly thirty years of his work, from his earliest oil paintings, through his significant 1990s embrace of everyday 3-dimenstional objects, to his evolution towards a more pictorial style. Federico Uribe (born in Colombia in 1962) studied art at the University of Los Andes in Bogota and in 1988 moved to New York, bringing his global vision that encapsulates his years of work in Cuba, Colombia, Mexico, Russia and England. • The volume explores questions of where Uribe draws his artistic inspiration; the meaning and metaphor behind his selection of materials; and his views on love, sex and death. Bartholomew F. Bland is executive director of the Lehman College Art Gallery.

A

painter, poster designer and sculptor, Wojciech Fangor (1922–2015) is a household name in 20th-century Polish art, alongside Magdalena Abakanowicz, Roman Opalka and Tadeusz Kantor. Initially interested in Cubism, during the Stalinist years he followed the officially approved doctrine of Socialist Realism. After Stalin’s death, Fangor focused on architectural and industrial design as well as on posters, being one of the founders of the Polish school of poster design, which won international acclaim in the 1960s. He also achieved recognition for his abstract paintings, initially in monochromatic colours, featuring circles, ellipses and waves. • Fangor was one of the most distinctive painters to emerge in postwar Poland.

Even so, the book includes contextual essays and interviews with the artist by the author as well as a timeline and comprehensive bibliography of the artist.

• Many of these sketches were produced during the late 1960s, a period of political crises and civil war in Nigeria (1967–1970); they thus provide us with a perspective on the experience of that war quite different from literary or documentary accounts. • This book constitutes an exemplary publication that will surely be of interest to people in this growing field.

T

he first part of the book, Group Spirit, illustrates works by contemporary artists alongside works of unknown African artists from the Bassa, Gola, Mende and Vai people – of what is present day Liberia and Sierra Leone. Many of the contemporary works in Group Spirit use rough, non-artistic materials that achieve elevated status through their association with 20th-century abstract art – a once-renegade style that conveys emotion and transcendent meaning. Wild Style explores depictions of the human figure by contemporary artists and unknown African artists from 200 BC to the present. It establishes a horizontal as opposed to vertical paradigm, inviting the viewer to experience an exhibition where contemporary works of art stand on par with those from other cultures and periods. The works selected highlight the invisible bond linking 21st-century artists and those of prior generations.

Architect Ibrahim Mohamed Jaidah took his inspiration from two sources: the city of Venice (for centuries the fulcrum of trade between the Christian West and the Arab East) and the Arabian Deco style, very fashionable in the 1950s and 1960s, which introduced a series of new decorative motifs to the Gulf region. The hotel strongly focuses on design and detail, with over 3,000 pieces of handcrafted glasses and over 9,000 pieces of handcrafted chinaware created especially for Marsa Malaz Kempinski. • The first photographic book on one of the world’s most prestigious hotels. • Stunning exterior and interior photographs. • The first ultra-luxury hotel opens its doors to readers.

B

eing a photographer at the time when Santu Mofokeng (b. 1956, Johannesburg) decided to become one was not an unmotivated act. A psychological, moral and sometimes physical war was being fought and South Africa was its arena. Photography could not afford to be an artistic abstraction. It was both a political and intellectual commitment. It was anger, it was revolt. But it remained, in spite of everything, a form of writing, and that is how Mofokeng approached it. Not like his country’s freedom fighters who denounced the iniquity of the ideology behind Apartheid, but as the very special witness of a story which, until then, had been suppressed. By photographing his people, the places, the faces and the streets, Mofokeng speaks to us about himself. Because all stories always begin with the person who tells them. And they come back to the teller in the end. • Santu Mofokeng has been able to develop a strong career and an uncompromising body of work in photography, documenting South African reality from the Apartheid period to the present time; the question of black identity and integration between communities has always been crucial to his work. • Mofokeng has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the International Photography Prize 2016, organized by Fondazione Fotografia Modena and Sky Arte HD.

n Mtindo, award-winning photographer Daniele Tamagni captures a new young generation of creative minds – so-called “style movers” – who are today on the main scene of Africa. From musicians to artists and filmmakers, the aim of this photographic project is to present to the rest of the world the power of such a continent through arts and fashion. The African trend is now inspiring the whole world, from influencing international fashion designers to attracting the interest of new markets.

The word Mtindo means “style” in Swahili, and also “movement”. This photographic project is the expression of the movement “Rebranding Africa”. • The book highlights how the creative minds of Africa are embracing and acknowledging the continent’s advancement with style. Africa is rising. • Daniele Tamagni has a unique combination of fashion and documentary photography which brings people’s stories, with their personal way of expressing themselves, to an international level of attention.

his first volume of the publication Mimmo Rotella. Catalogue raisonné covers the early years of the artist (1918–2006), between 1944 and 1961. For the first time ever, an analytical cataloguing of his works, edited by Germano Celant with the support of the Mimmo Rotella Institute and the Fondazione Mimmo Rotella, begins from his paintings in the 1940s. Subsequently, these abstract-concrete explorations developed in his post-informal works up to his seminal experiments in 1953 called décollages, that is, not constructed like a traditional collage but made by ripping portions of paper off posters found along the walls of cities with the goal of drawing attention to consumer products. A passage from mass communication to art that alongside urban icons regarding food and politics also presents a lesser-known, darker side of the torn and reused surfaces: the retro d’affiche. In the early 1960s, the décollage changes. It avoids and reduces its characteristic of formless substance in favour of a figural story, typical of movie ads that glorify stars like Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren, so that Rotella is in historical synch with American Pop art and French Nouveau Réalisme. Overall, this first volume (divided into two publications) includes around 1,500 works, along with documents and historical-critical testimonies that make this catalogue an essential tool in researching and analysing this artist’s important practice. This publication will be followed by others—currently being edited—that deal with Rotella’s oeuvre until 2006. • The publication is developed in partnership with the Mimmo Rotella Institute and the Mimmo Rotella Foundation.

The evolution of the close bond between the visual arts and opera starting from the nineteenth century up to the early twenty-first century

T

he intertwining of visual and musical arts at the beginning of the 20th century led to modernism, abstraction and in music, atonality. This meeting of the arts was never so intense as on the operatic stage. In her book Painting the Stage. Opera and Art, curator and art and music critic Denise Wendel-Poray first examines historic productions beginning with Schinkel’s iconic stage design for Mozart’s Magic Flute, before exploring those of the 20th century with Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes and the implication of avant-garde artists in opera up until World War II. Directly after the armistice of 1945, famous artists such as André Derain, Balthus, Dalí, André Masson, and Kokoschka reopened the theaters amidst ruins, thus ushering in a new era of optimism. The event of pop art, happenings, and experimental theatre with the collaboration of artists Robert Indiana, David Hockney, Robert Wilson brought on further developments in the realm of opera. Finally, interviews with world famous artists such as Anselm Kiefer, William Kentridge, Bill Viola, Robert Longo, Jonathan Meese, and Daniel Richter show how their contribution to the genre is making opera today more than ever a form of “total art” or “Gesamtkunstwerk” and a hotbed of contemporary creation. • Rich, informative, and scrupulously researched, this comprehensive publication covers 200 years of opera stage design. • Featuring over 250 illustrations, this publication has fantastic visual content.

Denise Wendel-Poray, Canadian writer and critic and former opera singer, is the author of several books and essays concerning the relationship between art, theatre, and music.

ffering an outstanding introduction to a collection comprised of over 250 works by major 20th and 21st century artists, Walk on the Wild Side is a reference book that anticipates the fall 2017 opening of the Fondation Carmignac in Porquerolles (France). Edouard Carmignac spent the 1980s in New York, where he discovered the effervescence of Pop Art and leading artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, who painted Carmignac’s portrait. He later became one of the most important collectors of major works by Lichtenstein and Warhol, including the latter’s magnetic, iconic portraits of Mao and Lenin from 1973 and 1986. Meanwhile, Carmignac had a keen eye for German painting, particularly the work of Gerhard Richter, whose paintings he began to acquire in the 1990s – prior to the artist’s worldwide success. Initially centered on American Pop Art and the German school, the collection has progressively come to follow a more personal dynamic in step with Carmignac’s tastes. Thus the core of the collection has been complemented by artists like de Kooning, Raysse, Barceló, Gursky, Cattelan, Ruscha, Baldessari and Ruby. This book is the product of the confluence of leading authors, critics, philosophers, curators, and designers. Nicolas Bourriaud, David Cronenberg, Luc Ferry, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Catherine Millet, and Camille Morineau trace the history and illuminate the particular philosophy of a collection whose primary goal remains the sharing of aesthetic pleasure – originally with employees of the Carmignac Group, and now, with the broader public. • A reference book on the Carmignac Collection, which gathers works by legendary contemporary artists. 47

One of the main creative exponents during the extraordinary time of the Russian avant-garde movements

A

leading representative of the Russian avant-garde, Alexander Rodchenko (1891–1956) revolutionized the world of graphic art, design, and photography. The over 250 illustrations featured in this volume allow the reader to grasp the full force of this innovator and to appreciate the charisma he exerted on fellow artists and men of letters, directors and intellectuals who shared his path. Whether the photomontages he created for Vladimir Mayakovsky’s poem Pro Eto (About That), the covers designed for the magazine Novy LEF (New LEF) – a reference for the revolutionary intelligentsia – or cinema posters and book illustrations, Rodchenko’s works bear witness to his many collaborations and friendships, evoking not just the image of a brilliantly creative personality but a unique phase in twentieth-century history. The remarkable photographic portraits by the artist, his pictures of urban landscapes and architectures, as well as his photo-reportages in factories and building sites evoke both the faces and spirit of an age of great hopes and equally great contradictions. To this day, the style of Rodchenko the photographer, marked by unusual perspectives, sharp angles, and diagonals, stands as the purest witness not just to the talent of an artist but to his eagerness to modernize art and the world at large. • The Russian avant-garde of the 20th century is a unique phenomenon not only with respect to Soviet culture, but also in an international context. • Alexander Rodchenko was one of the main creative exponents during the extraordinary time of the Russian avant-garde movements.

ennis Oppenheim was a pioneer in the fields of earthworks, conceptual art, body art, and performance. This monograph follows the studio practice, public performance works, and gallery and museum shows that took place between 1969–1973 with documentation of conceptual performance works in slide, film, video, and photographic form exhibited alone or as a component of installations. A special emphasis will be how works such as Arm and Wire, 1969; Reading Position for Second Degree Burn, 1970; and Wishing Well, 1973, are made with diverse mediums and modes of work in which the idea and act of time-based performance is central. • Dennis Oppenheim was a pioneer in the fields of earthworks, conceptual art, body art, and performance. • Since the 1960s Oppenheim’s works have been included regularly in international group exhibitions, at such venues as the Museum of Modern Art, Centre Georges Pompidou, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Venice Biennale (1976, 1980, and 2001) and Documenta in Kassel (1972 and 1977). • Solo exhibitions have been held at the Tate Gallery (1972); the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (1979); and the Whitney Museum of American Art (1983 and 2003). Nick Kaye is Professor of Performance Studies at the University of Exeter. His research focuses on the development of performance theory and practice through sculpture, architecture, conceptual and performance art, experimental music, installation, and video. Research will be conducted in collaboration with the Dennis Oppenheim Estate. Amy van Winkle Oppenheim, third wife of the artist, is curator of the Dennis Oppenheim Estate.

Edited by Germano Celant, it documents the activities of the Dwan Gallery from 1959 to 1971, when its premises on the West Coast and the East Coast were home to the leading figures in Nouveau Réalisme (such as Yves Klein, Jean Tinguely, Niki de Saint Phalle, and Martial Raysse) and Minimal Art (Carl Andre, Walter De Maria, Sol LeWitt, and Charles Ross). Ample space is also devoted to the key part played by Virginia Dwan in the discovery and promotion of Earth Works or Land Art, displaying both conceptual and actual commitment through her support for the creation of Michael Heizer’s Double Negative (1969) and Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty (1970). Over the years, this major cultural and artistic contribution was accompanied by her work as a photographer, director and writer addressing international developments in the visual arts, architecture and music.

The iconography of motherhood in the art and visual culture of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, from early avant-garde movements to the present

W

hether as a symbol of creativity or as a metaphor for art itself, the archetype of the mother has been a central figure in the history of art, from the Venuses of the Stone Age to the “bad girls” of the postfeminist era and through centuries of religious works depicting innumerable maternity scenes. In undertaking an analysis of the representation of motherhood, The Great Mother traces a history of women’s empowerment, chronicling gender struggles, sexual politics, and clashes between tradition and emancipation. The volume mixes past and present, juxtaposing contemporary art, historical works, and artifacts from the world of film and literature, weaving a rich tapestry of associations and images. It brings together nearly 300 color images, illustrating monographic texts and in-depth information on all the artists in the exhibition and a collection of new essays and criticism, written specifically for the occasion. • Motherhood and the condition of women through a century of artworks, from Magdalena Abakanowicz, Ana Mendieta, Marisa Merz to Carla Accardi, Yoko Ono, Jeff Koons, Constantin Brancusi, Maurizio Cattelan, and Lucio Fontana. • A book about women’s power: above all, the power denied to women and the power won by women over the course of the twentieth century. • A story that spans the twentieth century, exploring female icons and clichés of femininity, and developing a complex reflection on woman as an active participant in representation, no longer just a passive subject of it. Massimiliano Gioni is director of the Trussardi Foundation, artistic director of the New Museum in New York, and director of the Venice Biennale in 2013.

T

his book traces the ways in which women artists deftly transformed the language of sculpture to invent radically new forms and processes that privileged studio practice, tactility, and the artist’s hand. Revolution in the Making seeks to identify the multiple strains of proto-feminist practices, characterized by abstraction and repetition, which rejected the singularity of the masterwork and rearranged sculptural form to be contingent upon the way the body moved around it in space. The catalogue sections span the late 1950s through to toda and includey: an examination of abstraction based on the human figure and the influence of the unconscious; works by Magdalena Abakanowicz, Eva Hesse, Marisa Merz, Mira Schendel, Michelle Stuart, Hannah Wilke, and Jackie Winsor; the move beyond singular, three-dimensional objects towards architectonic works characterized by repetition, structure, and design; the use of installation-based environments, embracing domestic materials and craft as an embedded discourse. • The catalogue is divided into four sections, featuring approximately 30 artists and nearly 100 works in total.

The different techniques of realization and presentation of audiovisual art, the thought of the protagonists, and the results of their artistic research

W

hat links exist between sounds and abstract images? What were the first audiovisual instruments? What was the influence of music on Kandinsky’s work? What are the most relevant audiovisual installations? What are the relationships between VJs and live cinema? And, what is synesthesia? Visual Music Masters answers these and many other questions concerning the relationship between art and music, spanning from Toulouse-Lautrec to Nam June Paik, from Händel to Xenakis, and from Fischinger to Ikeda. It is an in-depth study focused on both historical experience and contemporary research, illustrated by 150 color images. The association between images and music aroused the curiosity of a number of artists and thinkers of the past, it stimulated artistic creativity in the 20th century and continues to be a topic of great interest today. This book aims to take stock of the situation, now that abstract audiovisual art, having reached maturity, is enjoying a new season of renewed vitality. • The book depicts in a clear and effective language the stages and the protagonists of the technologic and multisensory revolution in art which gave form to a new and independent expressive form: visual music. Adriano Abbado began to work with digital images and sounds back in 1981. In 1986 he received a Fulbright scholarship to study at the MIT Media Laboratory. His most recent works have been shown in Barcelona, Copenhagen, Milan, New York, Paris, Rome, Shanghai, Strasbourg and Washington, DC.

ith a series of controversial projects, Morten Viskum (b. 1965) has established himself as the artist Norway’s cultural media likes to discuss most. Through his performative works he has shed light on a fear of the ephemeral and the strange that pervades our culture. Employing unconventional tools – including medical equipment, dead animals, cancer cells, and a deceased man’s hand – he challenges both the relationship between science and ethics, and what art can morally embrace. Viskum works with installation, performance, photography, and painting.

American Chronicles The Art of Norman Rockwell edited by Danilo Eccher and Stephanie Haboush Plunkett

N

orman Rockwell (1894–1978), one of the most popular American artists of the past century, has often been regarded as a simple illustrator and his work identified with the covers of the Saturday Evening Post. He is, instead, a total artist. An acute observer of human nature and talented storyteller, Rockwell captured America’s evolving society in small details and nuances, portraying scenes of the everyday life of ordinary people and presenting a personal and often idealised interpretation of the American identity. His images offered a reassuring visual haven in a period of epoch-making transformation that led to the birth of modern American society. The art of Rockwell entered the homes of millions of Americans for over fifty years.

Studies in beauty and terror, Botero’s monumental figures can be sensual, and many are filled with pain and sorrow. This monograph presents the paintings realised in the last thirty years and created using his own unique language, which is a distinguishing feature of his work and an extraordinary blend of Latin American tradition and European painting. • The selection documents the artist’s career to date and a survey of Botero’s key works.

ne of the founders of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Damascus, Zayat (b. 1935 in Damascus, where he still lives and works) taught there until his retirement in 2000. As a painter and icon restorer, his art is influenced by religious and popular iconography. Zayat’s oeuvre remains intimately concerned with the history, terrain, and psyche of his homeland. His parallel life as an art restorer and historian is evident in his rich vocabulary drawn from Byzantine, early Christian, Sufist, and popular legends. He has published several studies in the history of art and universal iconography. Over six decades of art practice are showcased in this beautifully illustrated, first- ever volume on this Syrian master artist and teacher.

asser Al-Salem (b. 1984 in Mecca) studied architecture at Um al Kora University in Saudi Arabia and then expanded his creative talents into his calligraphic practice. His work focuses on the aesthetic evolution of the written word; pushing the boundaries of an age-old Islamic artform by reinventing it in non-conventional mixed media forms. Nasser Al-Salem was tutored for over a decade in classical calligraphy by his master in Mecca. Now his work is a radical reinvention of what calligraphy can do, both literally and conceptually, within a contemporary context. This volume showcases the fascinating cross-pollination between two worlds and myriad perspectives.

Mariani’s new multi-dimensional works include lead sheets beneath intricate drapery, whereby the fabric both serves to conceal a mysterious object beneath while also evoking its presence. His first monumental narrative work in the 1960s was for St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, and in 1970 exhibited widely in prominent institutions in Europe such as the Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels and the Musée Moderne in Paris. Mariani has had several gallery and museum exhibitions, including at the Opera Gallery, Hong Kong and at the Opera Gallery, Monaco.

onsidered one of the great masters of contemporary Japanese photography, Daido Moriyama is always on the road, a lone traveller whose blackand-white images recount visions and worlds hidden just beneath the surface of reality. This book shows for the first time over 250 colour photographs taken between the late 1960s and the 1980s. A constant flow of images that is often frenetic or suddenly suspended, following the rhythm of an unfettered, restless life spent travelling the roads of the world. Daido Moriyama (b. 1938) is one of the most important living photographers and photobook makers. His career began in Tokyo in the 1960s, where he formed part of the influential Provoke group, which published some of the most innovative avant-garde photography made in post-war Japan. In a career spanning over fifty years, Moriyama is best known for his wild, blurred, grainy style of black and white photography, capturing urban experience on the streets of Tokyo and New York. However, there are many sides to his practice and he also works with colour, polaroid, silkscreen, and installation. • Moriyama’s work can be found in the collections of many major museums. Filippo Maggia is currently researcher in the Photography Department of the Royal College of Art, London. Since 2010, he has taught photographic documentation at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Catania (Sicily).

ophia Loren, Francis Ford Coppola, Robert De Niro, Meg Ryan, Fanny Ardant, John Malkovitch, Tilda Swinton, Jeremy Irons, Ferzan Ozpetek, Andy Garcia, Rupert Everett, Daniel Auteuil: a gallery of stunning photographic portraits of famous actors and actresses taken by the Italian photographer Francesco Escalar. As a teenager, he had already identified photography as his expressive medium and tool for dialogue, with the added stimulus of art, which plays a primary role in Escalar’s search for absolute beauty. The “pictorial” inspiration that Francesco Escalar conveys in his photography is particularly evident in his exploration of light, a hallmark of his work that instantly captures viewers’ attention. A photographer is always a bit of a gypsy, and Escalar finds further inspiration in all his travels which lends his work an enhanced sensibility, enriched as it is by his unforgettable human encounters. • One of the major Italian photographers and portraitists of celebrities.

Ayrton Senna The Last Night photographs by Ercole Colombo; edited by Giorgio Terruzzi

One hundred photographs narrate the career and most intimate aspects of the Brazilian car racer’s life

T

elling the story of Ayrton Senna is not easy. It means retracing an intense competitive career, looking into the vulnerable soul of a complex man, and reliving his tragic death, which came during the bloodiest weekend in the history of modern motor racing. It also means paying homage to a truly heroic figure, whose grace and appeal remain intact. In other words, we are talking about a journey into the collective memory, within which each racing fan cherishes particular moments, personal memories, emotions, and grief related to a figure who in some way continues to appear and to race in a highly colorful firmament. This brings us to Ercole Colombo. His photos, his passion for Formula 1, and his innate ability as a reporter, combined with the aesthetic touch of a great photographer.

Specifications size 12 x 73/4 in. (30 x 20 cm) 160 pages 152 colour illustrations hardcover ISBN 978-88-572-3153-2 £ 34.95, $ 50.00, Can. $ 50.00

• The most important moments in Ayrton Senna’s life: his legendary wins, his defeats, the loss of his friends, the rivalry with other drivers, his emotions and family relationships, and finally the terrible accident where he lost his life.

Gabriele Basilico. I listen to your heart, city edited by Walter Guadagnini in collaboration with Giovanna Calvenzi

Over 150 pictures by the great photographer on his favorite subject: the city, its nature and its changes

B

eginning with the Milano. Ritratti di fabbriche cycle from the late 1970s, this book follows the evolution of Basilico’s artistic language – amidst documentary rigor and subjective interpretation – from his legendary pictures taken in France and in major ports across Europe in the 1980s to the 1991 series devoted to Beirut which had just left behind its long civil war, up to his final work on the renewal of the Porta Nuova district in Milan. The main core of works in this publication consists of the 50 portraits of cities which the artist took over the course of his career: Paris, Madrid, Berlin, Moscow, San Francisco, Istanbul, Rio de Janeiro, and Shanghai intermingle and dialogue through Basilico’s impassioned and contemplative gaze. He was able to interpret the passage of time, transformations in architecture, unexpected analogies, in an endless journey across the bodies of cities.

Electric Fashion photographs by Frederic Aranda texts by Christine Suppes, foreword by Ken Downing

Photographer Frederic Aranda’s love letter to one of California’s most fascinating collections: the Christine Suppes Collection

T

hree decades of fashion brought together in one collection, worn as originally intended by the collector herself, and developed over five years by established fashion and portrait photographer Frederic Aranda: this is Electric Fashion. But why is it electric? It is the story of how the collector, Christine Suppes, blazed an indelible trail into online fashion editorial whilst developing a unique collection in the heart of Silicon Valley. Electric Fashion is essential viewing, punctuated with an academic perspective, comprehensive technical references, and archival text from the collection’s accompanying website, fashionlines.com. This timeless tome boasts a double vantage point; on the one hand, each garment is photographed in a studio setting to enhance critical academic understanding, whilst on the other, worn by the collector herself to depict the garments as they were originally intended to be worn. The finished product is a 360 degree view of fashion, from historical, cultural, and practical standpoints.

Italian Glamour. The Essence of Italian Fashion From the Postwar Years to the Present Day The Enrico Quinto and Paolo Tinarelli Collection A celebratory tribute to Italian style through fashion and costume in the twentieth century

T

he fashion archive of Enrico Quinto and Paolo Tinarelli has been painstakingly assembled over the last twenty years and traces the international evolution of costume from the mid-19th century to the present day. This quintessential volume on Italian Style narrates the development of fashion through around three hundred dresses, chronologically ordered and selected from an international collection of over six thousand pieces, enriched by commentary by historians, journalists and fashion designers, but also by photography, film and personal testimony: a concrete resource for historians of costume, students and enthusiasts. Most of the displayed dresses were documented by photographers when they first appeared worn by famous actresses, models and jet set personalities of the time: from the Duchess of Windsor to Queen Paola of Belgium, from Princess Grace of Monaco to Ava Gardner, Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, Veruschka, Marisa Berenson, Grace Jones amongst many others.

The leading movements, major figures, works and ideas that shaped the architecture of the twentieth century, one of the richest and most complex periods in human history

A

360-degree review of the architectural developments of the twentieth century, Architecture. Movements and Trends from the 19th Century to the Present retraces the history of the best-known groups and movements, as well as underlining the powerful influence of trends such as Totalitarian Architecture, Tropical Architecture, Social-Realist Architecture, Blob Architecture and Neo-Vernacular, all of which played a significant role in the rise and evolution of modern trends in the discipline. In tackling a highly complex century characterized by the rise of globalization, this exhaustive overview does not confine itself to analyzing architectural trends in Western countries but expands its field of vision to include world architecture as well. A comprehensive study and research tool, the book is divided into chapters devoted to each individual movement, with a selection of critical essays and photographs of the most important works and projects. Lastly, a brief thematic bibliography and other research tools make this book an indispensable instrument for students of architecture, design and engineering, as well as anyone with a passion for the subject. • Each entry has been written by specialists in the field in a clear, analytical style which makes the history of architecture accessible to non-specialists as well. The architect and critic Luca Molinari has been associate professor of history of contemporary architecture at the University of Naples since 2003, and guest professor at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts (China). He published different volumes in the field of architectural history and theory.

F

or architecture, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art’s Paul and Herta Amir Building provides a new spatial and tectonic paradigm; for museology, it represents a new approach for resolving tensions between divergent cultural agendas. The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is an unusual synthesis of two opposing paradigms of the contemporary museum: the museum of neutral white boxes dedicated to aesthetic contemplation and the museum of architectural spectacle, a site of public excitation. A comprehensive compendium of drawings, photographs, and texts, this book assesses the building within several of the most important discursive contexts of architectural and aesthetic theory.

hrough a selection of about thirty projects illustrated by photographs and drawings, the book reveals the capacity of the Arab Engineering Bureau to respect tradition and at the same time espouse the future of Qatar, which is currently involved in preparations for the 2022 World Cup, and the economic, social, and environmental development plan, Qatar National Vision 2030. Ibrahim Mohamed Jaidah’s critical commitment to acknowledge the vernacular architectural tradition, along with his great experience stemming from important collaborations of a contemporary nature outside the Persian Gulf nations, have led to the consolidation of the Arab Engineering Bureau as one of the most important firms within the process of Qatar’s modernization.

talian design and its resounding international success are the result of the fortunate encounter between contemporary design culture and the visions of entrepreneurs such as Piero Ambrogio Busnelli (1926–2014). Established in 1966 as a way to make the most of what Busnelli saw as the great potential of new materials for the production of furnishings– an innovative approach carried forward by his successors – B&B Italia has from the outset been the furniture industry that invests more than any other in research and experimentation on new technologies, collaborating with many of the leading international architects and designers: from Afra and Tobia Scarpa to Antonio Citterio, Mario Bellini to Gaetano Pesce, Zaha Hadid, Patricia Urquiola and Naoto Fukasawa.

• This book charts the company’s history through the products and places that have marked out its development, casting a spotlight on the way its corporate strategies have been intertwined with the poetics of form as explored by its designers.

ublished for the exhibition celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of Studio65 at the GAM in Turin, the city where the studio was founded in 1965, The Merchant of Clouds covers half a century of activity: a lovely story, an extraordinary journey across fifty years of the future. From the time of sit-ins at the School of Architecture in 1967 – when Studio65 developed its ironic, critical and desecrating design style – to initial interior designs with Leonardo, the sofa Bocca, Capitello, Baby-lonia – pop design objects that became symbols of a revolution in taste and language – and then a journey around the world, in 1975, in search of interesting opportunities where they believed designing and making dreams come true to improve the world was indeed still possible. The book documents these projects that, in half a century, stemmed from their desire to discover the remotest parts of the world always respecting each individuality seen through curious and unbiased eyes. • Studio65’s designs are on display in major museum collections worldwide.

Literature

Last Words Gabriele Tinti, preface by Derrick de Kerchove images by Andres Serrano

Last Words is a collection of found poems. Its conceptual basis is dramatic: to recover the lyricism of final moments

G

abriele Tinti has composed the last words of ordinary people who chose to commit suicide into a collection, a single, long, painful, moving poem of reality. Their words have been organized by the author into a kind of collective epitaph and faithfully recorded without any kind of alteration, freeing them of any pathetic attempt at identifying, fiction, or literary affectation. They are lethal, terrible, lucid words written as a shout, a scream, in serenity, with awareness, at peace; words that contain all the terrible complexity of life. In being last words, the end of all communication, of every vital impulse, they testify to the most authentic difficulty of being men.

The Secret of the Gondola David Alan Brown

A masterpiece by Canaletto leads a young art historian on the trail of an unsolved mystery

A

young art historian pursuing academic success. A painting by the most famous eighteenth-century painter of vedute, Canaletto. A gondola once possibly belonging to the poet Robert Browning – and who else before him? These are the key elements of the novel. When Jeremy Allyn is assigned Canaletto’s Vedute by his teacher as the topic for his dissertation, a subject many have already written about, he realizes he must find an original perspective. He therefore decides to focus on Canaletto’s figures, a secondary feature of his celebrated architectural scenes. This marks the beginning of an adventure with unexpected turns that will lead Jeremy to make some astonishing discoveries and to uncover a crime which had remained buried for centuries.

The book and exhibition are truly unprecedented due to the scholarship of the curators, the academic precision combined with educational intent, the number of works on display including paintings, drawings and manuscripts, and the exceptional loans from private collections and the world’s most important museums and libraries, such as the Louvre, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the Musei Vaticani, the Royal Collection at Windsor and the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana. The book features numerous masterpieces, including a large number of paintings, more than one hundred drawings and extraordinary codices and incunabula on loan from some of the greatest collections in the world.

S

eventeenth-century Dutch landscapes, still lifes, and scenes of daily life are so realistic in appearance that one would think that the artists painted from life. They actually executed their works in their studios, however, often on the basis of drawings. Dutch artists made many types of preliminary drawings, including broad compositional sketches, drawings of the landscape in their sketchbooks, counterproofs, construction drawings, and individual figural studies. Artists also indicated compositional ideas on their canvases and panels using underdrawings that are revealed through infrared reflectography. This volume features a wide variety of subject types and artists, among others Hendrick Avercamp, Gerrit Berckheyde, Aelbert Cuyp, Jan van Goyen, Adriaen van Ostade, Jacob van Ruisdael, Pieter Saenredam, and Rembrandt van Rijn. This fully illustrated exhibition catalogue includes three scholarly essays as well as entries on all the artists included in the show written by these and other experts.

T

he Rijksmuseum van Oudheden in Leiden and the Museo Civico Archeologico in Bologna can be considered “twins” due to their similar traditions, international prestige, and archeological legacies, but their Egyptian collections – both museums hold important masterpieces from the same area of the Saqqara necropolis – are what they share most in common. This book celebrates the museums’ intense and fruitful collaboration through the display of over 500 finds – some on loan from the Dutch museum for the first time – spanning the entire arc of Egyptian civilization, from the Predynastic to the Roman period. Since the study of history can never be completely objective, it is always appropriate to find the right way to recount the past. This dialogue and comparison between two major international Egyptian collections has provided an opportunity to “musealize” ancient Egypt yet again and, at the same time, offers a new key to interpreting the works, thanks to the contribution made by many internationally renowned Egyptian scholars. • The book presents hundreds of major finds spanning the entire arc of Egyptian civilization, from the Predynastic to the Roman period. • The comparison between two important Egyptian collections, one of them amongst the top ten in the world and the other ranking as the third in Italy, is a new topic. • A great overview of ancient Egypt’s civilization in a reference work.

The Modern History of Italian Wine edited by Walter Filiputti

The modern history of Italian wine, which began between the 1960s and early 1970s, narrated by its main protagonists

T

he modern history of Italian wine began between the late 1960s and early 1970s. It represents the most beautiful accomplishment ever obtained by Italian agriculture, transforming simple farmers into entrepreneurs whose bottles are now found around the world. The ability for renewal was extraordinary: from oenology to viticulture, from management models to marketing as well as communication. An all-Italian story of hard work and creativity that has never been told before takes shape with all of its fascinating complexity and variety through its men and women, vintners and wines: from the so-called renaissance of Italian wine and its protagonists to innovation of all kinds, up to defining a geography of Italian wine, with key wineries from the 1960s to today. • A complete survey of the history of Italian wine, its protagonists and beautiful landscapes. • Divided into three sections (“The Renaissance of Italian Wine”, “Italian Wine. Innovation” and “The Geography of Italian Wine”), the volume takes the reader on a journey into the multifaceted world of Italian wine. • With exceptional production value and quality content, this is the perfect gift for wine enthusiasts and bon vivants. • The book is devoted to all Italian vintners, in particular to Luigi Veronelli, the philosopher behind the “renaissance of Italian wine” and the man who popularized it and designed the architecture of its thought. Walter Filiputti is a journalist and writer specialized in food and wine.

Teatro alla Scala texts by Carlo Lanfossi; edited by Massimo Zanella

L

a Scala is “the world’s number one theatre, because it is the one that gives the maximum musical enjoyment”, wrote Stendhal on 10 November 1816.

Today, the theatre is still recognized as one of the leading opera and ballet theatres in the world.
