Tàpies : lo sguardo dell'artista by Antoni Tàpies( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Catalan artist Antoni Tàpies' life (1923-2012) was marked by existential questioning. Philosophers, religious thinkers, scientists, Old Masters and contemporary artists alike influenced his artistic practice. Tàpies' impulse to collect stemmed directly from this fascination. Constantly seeking a link between the many cultures, geographies and epochs of humanity, his spiritual quest typified all his artistic preoccupations. The 2013 exhibition 'Tàpies. Lo sguardo dell'artista' (The eye of the artist) at Palazzo Fortuny presents a thoughtful selection of Tàpies' own work in the broader context of his collection. The intimacy of the house of Mariano Fortuny, himself a kaleidoscopic collector, extends the dialogue. This book endeavors to convey the spirit of Tàpies' art and his extraordinary eye as both an artist and a collector. Exhibition: Palazzo Fortuny, Venice, Italy (01.06.-24.11.2013)
Proportio by Axel Vervoordt( Book )

'Proportio' features specially commissioned artworks by contemporary artists, 20th century masterpieces, Old Master paintings, archaeological artefacts, as well as architectural models and a large library of historical books on proportions. All these works provide a lens to help us see what proportion can teach us about the essential design of the present and how we can use this knowledge to create a blueprint for the future. This exhibition is an opportunity to explore universal proportions and an invitation to reflect upon the interconnectedness of our universe. 'Proportio' includes newly commissioned installations by contemporary artists such as Marina Abramovíc, Anish Kapoor, Massimo Bartolini, Rei Naito, Michaël Borremans, Ettore Spaletti, along with existing masterpieces by Ellsworth Kelly, Carl André and Sol Lewitt, as well as antiquities, Old Masters and antique architectural models
