Communicate : independent British graphic design since the sixties( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1960s youth culture and pop music became an important influence on British design. Key examples include the pop art collages of artists like Richard Hamilton and the psychedelic, punk, and new wave aesthetics of groups like Roxy Music and Pink Floyd. Images and illustrations were used in balance with letterforms to convey design concepts and ideas. The influence of popular culture is still relevant to contemporary British designers. Communicate focuses on the smaller independent design studios and teams that are credited with producing the most creative and innovative design over the past four decades and explores how and why British design has developed during this period."--Jacket

The conflict was anticipated before hostilities began by the visionary and apocalyptic work of painters such as Meidner and Kandinsky, Chagall, Nevinson, Grosz, Beckmann, Kirchner, and other artists were quick to define war's essential tragedy with objective, expressionist, or allegorical art that alluded to their own wartime experiences. The harshest images of war were made in the later stages or after the Armistice, when artists such as Dix had time to consider their participation in the war

Tina Modotti & Edward Weston : the Mexico years by Sarah M Lowe( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tina Modotti and Edward Weston arrived in Mexico in 1923 at the start of an extraordinary period of artistic creativity that became known as the Mexican Renaissance. The book traces the interwoven lives and work of Modotti and Weston from the early 1920's in Los Angeles, where they met, until the 1930's, focusing in detail on their time together in Mexico, where virtually all of Modotti's photographs were taken. In bringing together for the first time close to 150 photographs by Modotti and Weston, it reveals the distinctive responses to Mexico of two photographers from widely different backgrounds. At the same time, like other Modernists in Mexico, these two artists self-consciously created work that broke wholly with the immediate past, and fashioned an idiom in defiance of traditional ideas. A selection of images by two Mexican photographers, Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Mariana Yampolsky, reveals how indigenous photography was influenced by these two foreigners

10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cities are the ultimate and most complex manifestations of human civilization. For millennia, architects and builders have attempted to rationalize them into well-functioning and livable places for their inhabitants. While many aspects of a city evolve naturally, other facets result from masterful human interventions and radical imagination. Future City celebrates the visionary urban plans that have preoccupied architects trying to create a better world from the 1950s to the present." "Featuring hundreds of seminal and influential works by some sixty architects, ranging from the groundbreaking experiments of Rem Koolhaas, Zaha Hadid, Peter Cook, and Daniel Libeskind alongside a new generation of rising stars, including Asymptote, NOX, UN Studio, and Greg Lynn, this publication assembles several generations of utopian architecture in a single volume. The book provides an indispensable resource for contemporary architectural and urban development and innovation in the third millennium. Future City demonstrates how breaking from convention can reveal new territories of design and architecture in our great cities."--Jacket
The Americans : new art by Bruce Hainley( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The americans. newart. is the first book to survey the most recent wave of American contemporary art. The book features thirty of the most important artists to have emerged from the USA in the last five years, including some young artists who are just starting to establish their international reputations. The last time the American art scene was so active was in the eighties, which saw the emergence of a brat pack of celebrated artists. This phenomenon died along with the economic boom and international attention turned to other countries - including Britain. However, the wave of American artists that began to emerge in the later nineties is carving out a distinct identity for itself."--Jacket
