Azimut/h : continuity and newness by Luca Massimo Barbero( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of a seminal experience on the international art scene in the 1960s. In the postwar period characterized by wide-ranging experimentation involving major artists and international exchanges, Azimut/h played a key cultural and expressive role. Founded in 1959 with slightly different names by Piero Manzoni and Enrico Castellani, the gallery (Azimut) and the magazine (Azimuth) forged a new concept of aesthetics. In doing so, they were inspired by intense relationships developed with some of the leading figures exploring the language and theory of Italian and international art at the time. This book focuses on the Italian artists of that generation and the European and American reach of their work
Jacob Hashimoto : superabundant atmospheres by Luca Massimo Barbero( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When forms become as much a space for the spirit as for the body. Jacob Hashimoto is one of the most interesting young artists on the contemporary scene and is probably best known for his installations. He simulates nature without pretending to replicate it, and he redefines Japanese screen painting with his assemblages of paper kites in undulating, interactive compositions, embodying his longtime fascination with the intersections of painting and sculpture, abstraction and landscape. His works convey an ephemeral wonder, enthralling the viewer with their continuously shifting illusion of light, space, motion, and sense of flight. Hashimoto's crafting by hand is central in his works, and the resulting pieces embody the rhythm of repetitive execution given by the tying and knotting involved in their making."
