WEST TEXAS TRIANGLE. CATHERINE LEE   7.00€ 27.00€
AÑADIR A CARRITO
The work of American artist Catherine Lee conveys a complex dialogue between elements of abstraction and reference in which seemingly archaic forms are revised, adapted, and repeated to evoke intense personal associations. While maintaining an awareness that it is the abstract that is the most concrete and that her references serve as paths to physical immediacy, Lee’s work continues to explore and challenge the parameters of light, color, form, and surface. Produced in conjunction with the West Texas Triangle, this publication presents selections from a wide array of the artist’s sculptures, paintings, prints, and ceramic works.

AÑADIR A CARRITO
Danish-born, New York City–based photographer Torkil Gudnason’s most recent works juxtapose two kinds of classic subject matter in photography—botanical flora and fauna with female nudes—in order to draw out abstract qualities of color and contour. The photographer aims to present his audience with a new light – to express the banal in a new way. Through this eclectic mixture of classical subject matter, Gudnason has created new compositions that fall in line with the history of the nude but grow and progress in fresh and expressive directions through the use of symbol.

AÑADIR A CARRITO
Disquiet is a meditation on starting a family in a time of social unrest and uncertainty in America. A metaphoric journey that examines the first two years in the life of the photographer’s son, Disquiet weaves intimate family pictures with images of American society and the economic and political instability that defined its identity in the years between 2010 - 2012. Utilizing a comprehensive visual approach, including environmental portraiture, landscapes, still lives and sociological documents, Disquiet creates a multi-layered story of beauty, tenderness and unease. The resulting book is a fresh and distinctive approach to story-telling. One in which the themes of family, life, death, and external forces come to the foreground, recede, then cycle back again. The book brings the viewer on a journey that seamlessly shifts from public to private spaces and from the more literal to the metaphoric. Through the complex mix of imagery and the thoughtful design, sequencing and pacing, Disquiet moves beyond a simple visual record to poignantly reconstruct the mood of the time-period depicted. Disquiet is a striking visual interpretation of one person’s experience that is sure to resonate with the experiences of many.

JUSTICE. Faces of the Human Rights Revolution   9.90€ 40.00€
AÑADIR A CARRITO
New York-based photographer Mariana Cook is known for her character studies of persons both in and out of the public eye. Among her previous bestselling photobooks are Mathematicians, Faces of Science, Mothers and Sons, and Fathers and Daughters. Her latest collection introduces us to some of the women and men who are the faces of the human rights revolution, among them former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, the 39th American President Jimmy Carter, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and the Burmese democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi. Cook traveled the world to photograph and interview her subjects, and the accompanying texts—some written by the subjects themselves, others edited from interviews with them—share their insights into the nature and importance of human rights, and their reasons for devoting themselves to that cause. Through them we are reminded of the power of a single individual—one face, one voice—to transform the world. These human rights pioneers seek no personal gain: any rewards are the benefits that we all enjoy when the rule of democratic law protects us. The pictures and the words in this book show the strength of human character that has made human rights such a powerful movement across the world in our lifetime.

PARADISE   9.90€ 40.00€
AÑADIR A CARRITO
Gary Simmons’ art represents the most thoughtful, poetic and subtle consideration of race and class conceived in the last 25 years. Born in New York in 1964, Simmons attended the School of Visual Arts and in 1990 received an MFA from CalArts in Los Angeles, where he exhibited his most affecting sculptural work. Simmons’ first studio after returning to New York was in an old school building, where he found abandoned rolling blackboards that he used as elements in his sculpture. Soon after he began his first series of chalk drawings using disturbingly naive racist cartoon imagery, which he executed on newly fabricated blackboards. The time spent in the school fortuitously focused Simmons’ ongoing reclamation of childhood fantasies and elusive ghostly memories. While closely identified over the years with his enormous wall drawings, or “erasure” drawings, Simmons has consistently worked across media. His photographs, installations, sculpture, drawings, paintings and public projects explore the visual language of our social and cultural landscape as they touch on symbols and themes that range from poetic longing to the vernacular of the inner city. With approximately 150 reproductions, an introduction by Okwui Enwezor, critical texts by Gwen Allen and Charles Wylie and a reprint of an important early essay by Nancy Princenthal, Paradise is the first publication to offer a comprehensive overview of Simmons’ multifarious career.

POTENTIAL ARCHITECTURE - LUCY + JORGE ORTA   9.00€ 30.00€

Potential Architecture explores artists Lucy + Jorge Orta’s recent architectural endeavours that derive from their fascination with cell biology and the process of differentiation. Through drawings and sculpture, the artists conceptualize the communication process the human cell undertakes from its embryonic state, and the infinite transformations that lead to defined structural organisms. This new body of work draws from Lucy + Jorge Orta’s artistic practice, grounded in the universal concerns of community, shelter, migration and sustainable development. Potential Architecture is a powerful rejoinder to the arbitrary boundaries that define art, architecture and design.

David Benjamin Sherry (born 1981) graduated with an MFA in photography from the Yale School of Art in 2007. Just three years later, in 2010, his color-saturated photographs became the face of the Greater New York exhibition at MoMA/PS1; that same year, he was named as one of the 50 up-and- coming American talents by The New York Times T magazine. In Quantum Light, Sherry’s second publication, he continues his exploration of vivid color, ramping up the saturation and expanding his subject matter, in works incorporating landscapes, collage, still life, abstraction, portraiture and sculpture. A conversation between Sherry and Collier Schorr serves as preface to this beautifully produced clothbound volume, which is published to coincide with the artist’s first New York solo show at Salon 94.

Rocking Fornarina celebrates the past ten years of Fornarina’s “street couture” shoewear and apparel through the photographs of Francesco Musati and Valentina Aimone, who together have developed the brand’s identity into a sexy, sassy and artful visual style. Founded in 1947 by Gianfranco Fornari, and now led by his son Lino, Fornarina has galvanized the women’s shoe and apparel industry with its fresh take on urban style, emphasizing strong color, bold contours, humor and mischievous, tongue-in-cheek glamour, in styles ranging from sandals and sabots to boots and pumps. Rocking Fornarina includes a selection of previously unpublished photos by Musati and Aimone (who have been photographing for the company for more than 20 years), and a style gallery with portraits of Fornarina’s celebrity fans, such as Lindsay Lohan and Martina Stella.

Tria Giovan transports viewers to the Hamptons, to a pristine and fragile landscape of immeasurable variation and on a journey through the totality of the circle of time. The photographs are a meditation paying homage to a place where change is constant, primordial forces resonate, and the spirit is restored. Through a decade of seasons Giovan charted the permutations of tides, wind, sand, and sky. The 63 selected images featured in Sand Sea Sky: The Beaches of Sagaponack document a meteorological drama ranging from the threatening and explosive storm to the suffusing sunlight of midday and incandescent gloaming. In their invitation to become motionless they acquire an affecting intimate immensity that echoes America’s enduring belief in the transcendent spiritual beauty of nature. Tria Giovan An inveterate traveler raised in the Caribbean whose photography assignments have taken her all over the world, Giovan’s work has been published in Aperture, Elle, Esquire, Harpers, Travel & Leisure, and Vogue among many other publications. Her work has been exhibited in New York City, Athens, Greece, Washington, DC, and Havana, Cuba, and is in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art, The Brooklyn Museum, the Jewish Museum, and the NY Public Library. Her first book Cuba: The Elusive Island was published by Harry N. Abrams in 1996.

THE PORTRAIT MACHINE   9.00€ 30.00€
AÑADIR A CARRITO
In The Portrait Machine Project, Brooklyn-based New Zealand photographer Carlo Van de Roer (born 1975) explores the idea that a camera can reveal otherwise hidden facets of a subject’s character, and their relationship with the photographer and viewer. Van de Roer uses a Polaroid aura camera, developed in the 1970s in an attempt to record what a psychic might see. His subjects--friends, family, artists Miranda July, Terence Koh and Aurel Schmidt, author James Frey--are connected by sensors to the camera, which translates biofeedback into information about their characters and how they are viewed. The camera depicts this information as color in the Polaroid and as a printed description and diagram. In this, his first book, Van de Roer prompts us to question what we expect from a portrait, particularly when it’s of someone we think we know.

This monograph by Mark Wyse is based upon a sequence of photographs (some by Wyse, some appropriated from other sources) juxtaposing disparate images as a means of exploring modes of photographic—and personal—meaning. Framing the book's visual material, a dialogue of textual fragments introduces two voices that ruminate on the sense of seizure experienced while viewing a photograph.

VIKI LU MEETS THE FUTURE   8.50€ 37.00€

This book is in two parts: Art for BEEple’s Sake traces Victoria Lu’s remarkable life in the arts, from her formative years in Taiwan and her earliest curatorial efforts in Los Angeles during the late 1970s to recent landmark exhibitions such as “Future Pass,” presented during the 2011 Venice Biennale; Viki Lulu Meets the Future is a compendium of Victoria Lu’s theories and insights about contemporary Asian art of the past, present and future. She explains the concept of “Animamix,” a term she coined to describe the pervasive influence of comics and animation on global culture in the digital age — a trend that she says will be to twenty-first-century art what abstraction was to the last century. Together, these two literary ingredients — one part memoir and one part manifesto — combine to form an unforgettable autobiographical portrait of the first woman curator and art critic in the Chinese contemporary art world.

Still protected as sovereign territory under the Vienna Conventions, the embassy has stood abandoned since the early 1990’s as, in Beshty’s words, "a relic of two bygone regimes, unclaimable by any nation; a physical location marooned (by) symbolic shifts in global politics, a ruin set apart neitherby fences nor by millennia, but by the invisible and abstract mechanisms of international law". The site inspired his ongoing engagement with the invisible and marginal territories of globalization which provide an important line through his photographic and sculptural work of the past decade. Selected Correspondences focuses on three bodies of photographic work – two that deal with the Embassy directly and a third, Transparencies, which continues the question of place and movement. The work has been exhibited at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, Tate Britain, London, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, among others, and is brought together here for the first time, accompanied by two new essays on the projects.

EXPOSICION IN REAL TIME - FRANCO VACCARI   12.00€ 50.00€
AÑADIR A CARRITO
The first monograph on one of Italy's most important contemporary artist. This is the first complete monograph on the life and work of one of Italy`s most important contemporary artists and critics, Franco Vaccari. Exhibitions in real time covers his artistic production, from photography to video to his critical writing and is accompanied by a text written by a series of leading curators and critics. The book, which has been published to accompany a major exhibition at Spazio Oberdan in Milan, documents Vaccari’s artistic evolution, from his beginning as a visual poet to the conceptual path undertaken since the late ’60s and realised in a series of experimentations based on the use of different media, photography and video. This volume encompasses the whole documentation on Vaccari’s Exhibitions in real time: 35 performances produced over 30 years. Franco Vaccari was born in Modena in 1936 and is one of Italy’s major living artists. His experimental research carried out over 30 years – in photography, cinema and video – has been accompanied by an intense theoretical activity, and he has published among others Duchamp e l’occultamento del lavoro (1978) and Fotografia e inconscio tecnologico (1979), which is still a seminal contribution to the debate on photography. His work has been exhibited in several international museums and he took part in the Venice Bienniale in 1972, 1980, 1993 and 1995.

BLINDED BY LOVE   13.00€ 60.00€
AÑADIR A CARRITO
The first monograph on Italian performer Franko B. With his robust body tattooed, the self-inflicted wounds and the slow bleeding transformed into an actual drip technique, performer and visual artist Franko B firmly made his mark as a new icon of contemporary body art. Printed in an all black edition, Blinded by Love documents his activity within the practice of performance from the early 90’s to the present, also introducing his most recent works. Over the years this powerful imagery of the wounded body and blood has been a vehicle for the most varied reflections such as vulnerability, pain, loss and, more generally, the alienation and trauma aroused by the cultural, religious and political establishment. The works documented in Blinded by Love reflect the artist’s recent decision to abandon the blood practice and turn his research towards new strategies. From the circular works on wood, featuring a recurrent “man-heart-cross” triptych, to the monochrome blacks (some inspired by the Abu Ghraib Prison), right down to the installations of objets trouvés wrapped in bloody paper, Franko B’s new works range variously between drawings, paintings, photos and installations. Born in Milan in 1960, Franko B has lived in London since 1979. He became active in body art performance in 1990 and has presented around forty performances at numerous international venues including the Tate Modern and the ICA in London and the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels.

AÑADIR A CARRITO
Rolex was established in 1908, a century ago, so one hundred years have passed from that day to the publication of this volume in which the author, John Goldberger, illustrates what he considers to be the 100 most beautiful examples ever produced. One hundred years of life, and one hundred examples, traced back through time thanks to painstaking research, with the collaboration of some of the most renowed collectors in the world, and photographed to show the characteristics of the movement, case and dial of each example in the best possible way. The top one hundred, we could say, also to narrow down the field of research, which would otherwise have been incredibly vast, to grasp the essence of a brand that has probably contributed more than any other to the development of the wristwatch. Giampiero Negretti Over 700 colour illustrations and 400 descriptions provide the collector and watch enthusiast with invaluable information on reference numbers, watchcases, faces, movements, related calibres and the year of production of each watch. The book is divided into seven chapters: Watches with a destiny; Oyster; Chronograph and moon phases; Oyster chronograph and moon phases; Datejust, Day-Date; Sport Models; Cosmograph. John Goldberger has been collecting and studying vintage watches for over thirtyfive years. He spent many happy hours browsing through watch shops, fleamarkets, conventions and auctions around the world.

MURANO BEHIND THE GLASS   11.00€ 50.00€
AÑADIR A CARRITO
People from the island of Murano belong to one of those rare civilizations which – much to the joy of the historian and the anthropologist – have come down, almost unchanged, to the present time. To visit a glass furnace, enter its warehouse, explore its tortuous nooks and crannies may seem like a journey back in time, a jump into the past. It has much in common with the thrill experienced by the archaeologist, who, after years of excavations, discovers the opening that leads into a great mansion of the past, which towers in front of him, rescued from the desert sands, as intact as it was when its last tenant left it. The wonders of glass, as well as the artisans’ amazing creative skills, are overcome by the feeling of witnessing a strange time anomaly. That’s how, wishing for a brief moment to be a photographer, I tried to convey in pictures the childlike emotion I felt before such landscapes and people, as if watching something that time could not wash away, but which is still full of colour and life. Henry Thoreau Henry Thoreau - who graduated in architecture from IUAV in Venice - is an architect, painter, photographer, and has shown his works widely in Italy and abroad. As a photographer he has been for several years regulary contributing to AD France, as well as to many other major Italian and international magazines (Io Donna, Vogue Casa, Domus, L’Officiel, Panorama, More than Classic). He collaborates with the Politecnico in Milan.

AFTER ALL   9.90€ 40.00€

Instead of the traditional allure of a meal awaiting an unseen viewer’s consumption, Laura Letinsky photographs the remains of the table so as to investigate the precarious relationships between ripeness and decay, delicacy and awkwardness, control and haphazardness, waste and plenitude, pleasure and sustenance. Dutch-Flemish and Italian still-life paintings – whose exacting beauty documented shifting social attitudes resulting from exploration, colonization, economics, and ideas about seeing as a kind of truth – are a major influence. In her photographs, remnants of daily sustenance and pleasure are examined "after the fact". Letinsky explores photography’s transformative quality, changing what is typically overlooked into something splendid in its resilience.

Artist Eros Renzetti is taking part in the 54th Venice Biennial International Art Exhibition in the Italy Pavilion at the Arsenale, proposed by writer Vincenzo Consolo. A writer and essayist, Consolo is considered to be one of the major contemporary Italian authors and the winner of the prestigious Premio Strega for Nottetempo, casa per casa, in 1992. He comments: “I chose to present artist Eros Renzetti at the Venice Biennial, in the Italy Pavilion at the Arsenale, because I found this artist's work to be extremely striking and persuasive. His male figures with helmets, like the warrior of Dodona, seen in profile, his "presences" of faces, his nudes, his "tattoos" and, above all, his colours, reminded me of the great surrealist painting of Leonor Fini, of Fabrizio Clerici or of Alberto Savinio." Indeed, Renzetti was a pupil of and assistant to Fabrizio Clerici and closely linked to Leonor Fini, who wrote the catalogue presentation on the occasion of his first exhibition in 1995.

AÑADIR A CARRITO
Fragile, the exhibition title of the twentieth edition of SIFest 2001, which will be held at Savignano sul Rubicone from the 9th to the 11th of September 2011, suggests a starting point from which to begin to investigate the contemporary trends that affect the environment and man. The human landscape, loosely interpreted, nowadays appears to elude the individual, while its diverse manifestations describe unexpected critical thresholds and unforeseeable variations. The widespread sense of fragility which unites the experiments of the various artists invited thus summarises the complexity of contemporary living in a single word. The works of more than twenty renowned photographers are shown at the exhibitions and published in the SIFest catalogue: Guido Guidi’s photographic verifications, Miroslav Tichý’s original work, presented here in the form of a tribute to the Czech photographer who died this year, the fragile, suspended moments of Michael Wolf’s Tokyo compression, the inevitable march of progress that will transform the city of Sochi in the next few years in preparation for the 2014 Olympic Games, examined in Rob Hornstra and Arnold van Bruggen’s slow journalism project, and nature’s attempt to return to an original harmony in Taj Forer’s Stone by stone, are just some of the visual narrations which revolve around the theme of fragility in the book.

LEGENDARY HEARTS - GABRIELE TINTI   7.00€ 20.00€

The project means to propose an inconvenient and new parallelism between art and the practice of boxing, defining boxing as one of the places of the myth's production just as literature and arts. Gabriele Tinti curated "Universal Embassy", "Art Mama" and "Memorial" for the fifth, sixth and seventh editions respectively of the Festival Internazionale della Fotografia di Roma. Long obsessed with boxing, he started thinking about all the implications between art and sport with the "All Muscles" project, a series of interviews and investigations for major art, literature and sports magazines. Integral parts of the project were the book "Legendary Hearts" (published by Damiani in 2009, preface by Nino Benvenuti and pictures by Franko B), the recent reading on Arthur Cravan (early twentieth-century poet and boxer) at the Festival della Poesia in Modena, the Box(e) exhibition at the Jerome Zodo Contemporary, for which Tinti took fighting inside an art gallery, and "New York Shots" a collaboration with Howard Schatz and Michael Imperioli for MACRO, Rome.

AÑADIR A CARRITO
Catálogo de la exposición "La misión y los misioneros" del artista africano Adéagbo, en el MUSAC Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y Leon. La obra de Adéagbo se caracteriza por la combinación de diversos objetos y textos, que encarga, colecciona o encuentra en Cotonou, y en las zonas circundantes de los lugares en los que presenta sus exposiciones. Para ello, antes de inaugurar una exposición en una localidad, Adéagbo necesita pasar allí el tiempo suficiente para poder contrastar su investigación con la experiencia directa de las condiciones y circunstancias del lugar. Sobre esta base, complementa los textos y objetos traídos de su archivo de Benín con piezas obtenidas en ese entorno concreto. Adéagbo aborda el complejo e inexhaustible tema de la misión, tanto a partir de su propia experiencia personal y profesional, como a través de la Historia y la religión, sus relaciones y contradicciones, sus repercusiones y transformaciones. Esta densa y compleja obra de acumulaciones, referencias y relaciones constituye, como la mayor parte de las instalaciones creadas por Adéagbo, lo que Stephan Köhler quiere entender como "un oráculo y un talismán que nos orientan y protegen por los derroteros de la vida," una "orientación, análoga a un mapa y una brújula, un espacio mental en el que reflexionar acerca de dónde venimos, dónde nos encontramos y, no menos importante, si estamos en el camino adecuado para reconocer y cumplir nuestro cometido vital."

The sphere is a geometric shape that holds within a principle of universal oneness: the egg, from Piero della Francesca to Christopher Columbus, is a golden shape. Krashenki, wooden eggs covered in traditional Ukrainian decorations celebrating Easter, painted by inmates, intellectuals and people from different walks of life, create the installation of Ukrainian artist Oksana Mas for the Biennale di Venezia 2011: a veritable architecture that evokes a mosaic where the single elements, made of the drawings on the eggs, tell stories of sins and dreams of redemption, hope in the future and a yearning for purity in the form of initiation into a new life, the full life heralded by the Easter egg. Oksana Mas has ‘cross-pollinated’ modern sculpture with mosaic and has made its structural characteristics yield to an artistic expression that is never geometric and elementary, but plastic and fabulating.

MARGARET EVANGELINE SABATCHANI   7.00€ 27.00€

American artist Margaret Evangeline’s Sabachthani is a cry, not of pain, but of lamentation upon the use of force and its cumulative effect on individuals and communities over time. Sabachthani invokes the same cry Barnett Newman wrote of in 1966: “The cry of Lema—for what purpose?—this is the Passion and this is what I have tried to evoke in these paintings ... I wanted human scale for the human cry ... I wanted to hold the emotion, not waste it in picturesque ecstasies. The cry, the unanswerable cry, is world without end. But a world has to hold it, world without end, in its limits.” Sabachthani traces the intricate development of this powerful series, initiated as a collaboration with soldiers at Balad Air Base in Afghanistan in 2011, shortly before American troops were withdrawn from Iraq.

Entender por qué se colecciona arte es tan simple y tan complejo como entender por qué nos enamoramos. Las razones son muchas. El acto de buscar y recoger como instinto de la acumulación es parte de la naturaleza humana desde los albores del tiempo y se puede decir que ha llegado a su máxima expresión emocional con el coleccionismo de arte. Algunos lo hacen tal vez por dejar una marca o crear un legado. Otros por sentimentalismo, por la belleza, la conmemoración, la adoración, la vanidad, el espectáculo o para la inversión. Los exponentes más interesantes coleccionan arte porque se sienten atraídos por la habilidad del artista y la magnitud de la obra. Estos coleccionistas constituyen una categoría superior, y se pueden considerar como los conocedores del arte. A esta categoria pertenece la famialia Cohen y en este volumen se ofrece una visión general de su colección, con el objetivo de mostrar las obras en su contexto y, gracias a interesantes comentarios informativos, arrojan luz sobre la inmensidad de la colección.

De acuerdo con la teoría de la entropía, se puede suponer que la condición de desorden que condiciona nuestra vida moderna no es un síntoma negativo ...". Así lo afirma Jim Supangkat, crítico y comisario indonesio en la introducción de este libro que explora la escena del arte contemporáneo de su país a través de la obra de diez artistas fundamentales. Al igual que en la producción artística de otros mercados asiáticos, especialmente China e India, también el arte indonesio celebra el caos, un síntoma de la globalización que no es carente de posibilidades expresivas. Artistas: Gede Mahendra Yasa, Handiwirman Saputra, FX Harsono, Ichwan Noor, Haris Purnomo, Rudi Mantofani, Wayan Sija, Yuli Prayitno, Agus Suwage, Entang Wiharso. En inglés, 96 páginas, 70 fotos

Fang Lijun. The Precipice Over the Clouds   16.00€ 54.00€
AÑADIR A CARRITO
Fang Lijun, uno de los principales protagonistas del arte contemporáneo chino, nació en 1963, tres años antes del inicio de la Revolución Cultural. Comenzó a pintar a los cinco años y continuó experimentando incansablemente con el dibujo y la pintura. A comienzos de 1990 Fang Lijun fue uno de los principales exponentes del realismo cínico, un término acuñado por Li Xianting y caracterizado por un sutil humor rebelde: la palabra "" rebelde "", que en chino abarca el concepto de cinismo - que significa aquello que es jocoso, amante de la diversión, sin restricciones, displicente y capaz de ver a través de las cosas. El arte de Fang ha evolucionado gradualmente para crear un mundo expansivo, cuya narrativas representan multitudes, los paisajes, los bañistas, cabezas emergentes, flores, cielos y niños flotantes. La repetición es un motivo dominante, pero la repetición deriva de las prácticas comunes a las técnicas de meditación de la filosofía oriental, que interrumpen la sensibilidad cronológica que es tan fundamental para el pensamiento occidental . La pintura de Fang es rigurosa y equilibrada, lo que sugiere en su interior los secretos de Oriente y la angustia contemporánea de la pérdida de identidad. Es un arte de fantasías cínicas: lo que parece ser radiante y sonriente puede revelar una realidad dolorosa. El mundo de Fang de los miedos cotidianos es mucho más cerca de nosotros de lo que sospechamos. " Observaciones: INGLES / PAGINAS: 264 / ILUSTRACIONES: 238 EN COLOR

Las obras van desde el muy conceptual a lo más formal.
