Communicate : independent British graphic design since the sixties ( Book )
8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 638 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."--BOOK JACKET
A bitter truth : avant-garde art and the Great War by Richard Cork( Book )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Richard Cork shows how avant-garde artists from Europe, Russia, and the United States challenged the recruiting posters and other propagandist views of the struggle by producing art that reflected the degradation of the trenches. Many of their images are now counted among the landmarks of early twentieth-century art, but his pioneering and lavishly illustrated book also examines a wealth of far less familiar work

Tina Modotti & Edward Weston : the Mexico years by Sarah M Lowe( Book )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 431 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

The surreal house by J Alison( Book )
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Through a unique blend of art, film and architecture, "The Surreal House" presents the individual dwelling as a place of mystery and wonder. Fusing house and dream, it probes the relationship between interior and shell, object and space; and it elaborates 'the marvellous' and 'compulsive beauty' as espoused by Andre Breton. The haunted house, the cabinet of curiosities, the ruined castle, the cage, the cave, the box, the labyrinth, the bell jar and the womb are among the uniquely surreal habitats explored. Shaped by the irrational and the subversive, the flip side of the modernist paradigm of the functional, rational dwelling, "The Surreal House" is ripe for discovery. Mirroring the surrealist love of poetic juxtaposition, the project brings together works by artists such as Edward Hopper, Marcel Duchamp, Giorgio de Chirico, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Rene Magritte, Joseph Cornell and Salvador Dali. A surreal legacy is to be found in the interiors of little-known Italian architect and designer, Carlo Mollino; Frederick Kiesler's model for "The Endless House, 1957-59"; sculptures by Louise Bourgeois and Rebecca Horn; and, installations by Edward Kienholz and Ilya Kabakov. Contemporary architecture is represented by the work of Rem Koolhaas and Diller & Scofidio among others. A manifesto for a poetic reading of the house, "The Surreal House" reflects on the unquestionable importance of the dwelling, the cradle of our being, in the imaginative realm. This richly illustrated account brings together a host of commentators and historians, and accompanies a major exhibition. Exhibition: Barbican Art Gallery 10 June - 17 September 2010
The Americans : new art ( Book )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 333 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."--BOOK JACKET
Future city : experiment and utopia in architecture by Jane/ Brayer, Marie-Ange/ Migayrou, Frederic/ Spiller, Neil Alison( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 327 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."--BOOK JACKET
