Paint the revolution : Mexican modernism, 1910-1950( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the wake of the 1910-20 Revolution, Mexico emerged as a center of modern art, closely watched around the world. Highlighted are the achievements of the tres grandes (three greats)-José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros-and other renowned figures such as Rufino Tamayo and Frida Kahlo, but the book goes beyond these well-known names to present a fuller picture of the period from 1910 to 1950. Fourteen essays by authors from both the United States and Mexico offer a thorough reassessment of Mexican modernism from multiple perspectives. Some of the texts delve into thematic topics-developments in mural painting, the role of the government in the arts, intersections between modern art and cinema, and the impact of Mexican art in the United States-while others explore specific modernist genres-such as printmaking, photography, and architecture. This beautifully illustrated book offers a comprehensive look at the period that brought Mexico onto the world stage during a period of political upheaval and dramatic social change. - Published on the occasion of the exhibition, held at Philadelphia Museum of Art, October 25, 2016 - January 8, 2017; Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico City, February 3 - April 30, 2017; and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, June - September 2017
Gabriel Orozco by Gabriel Orozco( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is the most complete monograph of artist Orozco (b. Jalapa, Veracruz, Mexico,1962) published to date, covering his career with a selection of his most representative works from the late 1980's to the present. Contents include essays by art historians Yve-Alain Bois and Benjamin H.D. Buchloh and a long interview by Briony Fer, where the artist shares his motivations and thoughts regarding conceptual art, culture and the philosophy behind his work. Benjamin H.D. Buchloh refers to the different forms of sculpture during the 20th century and the culture of market economy and their manifestations since the transformations to object-subject. Finally Yve-Alain Bois explores the recent return to painting of Orozco critically analyzing the formal and structural logic of his canvas. With a nomadic lifestyle and a permanent changing and varied artistic practice that includes sculpture, drawing, photography, installation, collage, painting and video, noted Orozco is an artist that defies any categorization
Picasso, Rivera : conversations across time by Juan Rafael Coronel Rivera( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book explores the artistic dialogue between Pablo Picasso and Diego Rivera that spanned most of their careers. The book showcases nearly 150 iconic paintings, sculptures, and prints by both artists, along with objects from their native ancient Mediterranean and Pre-Columbian worlds. It gives an overview of their early training in national academies; important archaeological discoveries that occurred during their formative years; and their friendly and adversarial relationship in Montparnasse. A series of essays accompanies the exquisitely reproduced works, allowing readers to understand how the work of each artist was informed by artworks from the past. Picasso drew upon Classical art to shape the foundations of 20th-century art, creating images that were at once deeply personal and universal. Meanwhile, Rivera traded the abstractions of European modernism for figuration and references to Mexico's Pre-Columbian civilization, focusing on public murals that emphasized his love of Mexico and his hopes for its future. Offering valuable insight into the trajectory of each artist, this book draws connections between two powerful figures who transformed modern art

Die Essenz der Dinge : Design und die Kunst der Reduktion by Mathias (ed.) Schwartz.Clauss( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

?The Essence of Things? seeks to investigate the motifs and motivations of reduction in design. Beginning with a look at the broad horizons of the theme, this richly illustrated catalogue accompanying the exhibition of the same name places a central focus on industrial design. Its extensively researched and vivid presentations consider the importance of technological and economic conditions as well as the dialogue between design and art and the changing ethical standards applied to design. It traces the unassuming heroes of daily life, examines the concept of man as the measure of all things and finds meaning in omission as a paradoxical intervention -- Book jacket
