A jeweler's eye : Islamic arts of the book from the Vever Collection by Arthur M. Sackler Gallery (Smithsonian Institution)( Book )

9 editions published in 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This sumptuous volume, based on an exhibit at the Smithsonian's new Sackler Gallery, perceptively describes the Islamic art holdings of the late Parisian jeweler and pioneering collector of Asian art, Henri Vever. The legendary collection of Persian and Arabic miniatures was thought lost during the Nazi occupation of France. A series of serendipitous events, dramatically told here, led to its recent discovery in New York and its subsequent acquisition by the Smithsonian. The 77 paintings, all of which were originally illustrations for Islamic manuscripts, are reproduced in brilliant color. Despite their great devotion to Asian art, Vever and his fellow collectors, illiterate in Persian and Arabic, were unable to appreciate the cultural context from which this art emerged. The authors (Lowry is a curator at the Sackler Gallery and Nemazee is a curatorial assistant) have restored the texts to their illustrations, thus returning these small masterpieces to the context from which they were torn. For both the connoisseur and the newcomer, poems, stories and scriptural references will further enhance the enjoyment of the splendid book."--PW

The new Museum of Modern Art by Glenn D Lowry( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the past few years, The Museum of Modern Art has been in the midst of the largest building project in its history. Designed by Yoshio Taniguchi, the new museum will open in midtown Manhattan in November 2004 - 2005 to coincide with MoMA's 75th anniversary. The 630,000-square-foot complex is nearly twice the size of the former facility, with dramatically expanded and redesigned spaces for exhibitions, public programming, educational outreach, and scholarly research. In his initial proposal, Taniguchi explained that his goal was "to create an ideal environment for art and people through the imaginative and disciplined use of light, materials, and space." His stated vision of "a museum that preserves and reinforces MoMA's unique character as the repository of an incomparable collection of modern and contemporary art, as a pioneer of museums of modern art with a unique historical inheritance, and as an urban institution in a midtown Manhattan location" has been resoundingly implemented

A Japanese constellation : Toyo Ito, Kazuyo Sejima, SANAA, Ryue Nishizawa, Sou Fujimoto, Akihisa Hirata, Junya Ishigami by Pedro Gadanho( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'A Japanese Constellation' showcases a group of contemporary architects who work in Japan but whose influence extends throughout the world. This book, published in conjunction with the first exhibition to feature three generations of practitioners orbiting Pritzker Architecture Prize laureates Toyo Ito and SANAA, moves beyond the limited framework of the architectural "star system" to illuminate how shared themes may spawn cross-generational lines of descent and influence. Highlighting forty-four designs realized since the year 2001, the volume reveals how structural invention, ceaseless experimentation, nonhierarchical thinking, and novel uses of transparency and lightness inform and strengthen the identity of linked local practices, even as their impact is global. With 336 illustrations as well as essays by Perdo Gadanho, Terunobu Fujimori, Taro Igarashi, and Julian Worrall."--Dust jacket
Doug Aitken : Electric earth by Doug Aitken( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accompanying the artist’s first full-scale survey exhibition, this generously illustrated book explores Doug Aitken’s work across mediums, disciplines, and themes. From photography to architecture, and from video to spoken word, Doug Aitken has delved into a variety of art forms to create a provocative body of work. This volume surveys the full scope and depth of Aitken’s work: sound pieces, sculpture, architectural experiments, land art and happenings, which embrace a collaborative spirit across disciplines and beyond walls, to re-imagine the nature of what a work of art can be. Interspersed with hundreds of color illustrations, the book’s essays examine the plethora of ideas the artist tackles from environmental decay to the end of linear time and explain how and why Aitken challenges many artistic barriers

Photography at MoMA by N.Y.) Museum of Modern Art (New York( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of photography has been told many times, but never before through the incomparable collection of photographs at The Museum of Modern Art. As the second volume in a set of three books that together present a new and comprehensive history of photography through works from MoMA's collection, this publication charts the medium during the height of the modernist period, from 1920 to 1960. Only one other volume--Looking at Photographs, published in 1973--highlights the photographic treasures of MoMA's collection; neither Beaumont Newhall's classic History of Photography nor John Szarkowski's Photography Until Now used the Museum collection as a springboard to approach photography's distinctive history. The Museum's significant role in the development of this history, and in the construction of a canon that championed photography as an art form (but also eclipsed certain alternative or unfamiliar practices) requires a reconsidered history for the 21st century. This publication offers a fresh critical lens through which to appreciate works of exceptional significance, surprise and influence, encouraging creative new readings. The book begins with an in-depth introduction followed by eight chapters of full-color plates, each introduced by a short essay
