Envisioning a positive future through design 2050: Designing Our Tomorrow describes the ways in which architecture and design can engage with the key drivers of change and provide affirmative aspirations for a not-so distant future. With a focal date of 2050, this issue of AD asks when and how the design community can, should, and must be taking action. The discussion centres on shifts in the urban environment and an established way of life in a world of depleted natural resources and climate change. Featuring interviews with Paola Antonelli of MoMA and Tim Brown of IDEO, it includes contributions from thought leaders, such as Janine Benyus, Thomas Fisher, Daniel Kraft, Alex McDowell, Franz Oswold, and Mark Watts. High-profile designers like FutureCitiesLab, SHoP, and UrbanThinkTank, are featured as examples of forward thinking and innovation in the field, highlighting the need for and possibility of a shift in the global perspective. The discussion includes the challenges we face in creating a positive tomorrow, and the solutions that architecture and design can bring to the table. Despite the proliferation of global crises possibly threatening human survival, our current moment provides the opportunity to write a new, positive story about our future. 2050: Designing Our Tomorrow describes how the design community can contribute to that vision by asserting positive aspirations for the worlds we create ourselves. * See how architects and designers inspire global positive change * Consider architecture's role in shaping cultural outlook * Learn the key drivers of change for the built environment * Explore the perspectives of leading experts and designers Architects and planners over the centuries have put a stamp upon the planet through the physical manifestations of their belief structures. Today's design community faces a rising wealth gap, climate change, shifting paradigms of nationalism, and myriad other challenges. 2050: Designing Our Tomorrow phrases global issues as a design problem, and describes how architects and designers can rise to the challenge of creating a more positive future.

This book is a compilation of interviews and essays that cover a broad range of photographers and photographic disciplines. Each photographer profiled made a living by concentrating on a specific aspect of the craft, but in doing so transcended their livelihood to become recognized for more than the type of images they created. Each had a distinct "style, " creative approach, dedication to the craft, point of view about themselves and the world. These interviews were conducted during a seminal period in the shift from film to digital and from print reproduction to global distribution on the Internet. Just like their photographs continue to inspire today, now these pros' words can live on as an invaluable reference for the photographers of the future. The truth and wisdom in this collection transcend time and technology.

383 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 31 cm
Drawn from the extensive holdings of the Staatliche Museen in Berlin, this collection of jewellery through the ages links cultures and eras to show how the design, wearing, and collecting of personal adornment has evolved over the ages. They range from classic items such as necklaces, rings and earrings to less common items with origins in non-European cultures. The book features jewellery ranging from the splendid crowns of ancient Greece, gold earrings from Babylon and jewelled collars worn by 13th-century Islamic royalty to more modern pieces such as those contained in the imperial collection of Queen Louise of Prussia, Art Nouveau jewellery designed by Rene Lalique, and work by contemporary designers. This chronologically arranged survey includes numerous brief essays and nearly 400 illustrations with detailed captions, making it an ideal reference for anyone interested in cultural history, the history of jewellery, or the art and craft of jewellery making.

  • Foreword / Carlie Wilmans
  • Introduction / Jock Reynolds
  • 500 Capp Street : a history / Constance M. lewallen
  • An artist's daring dream house / John Ashbery
  • Photography credits.
500 Capp Street tells the story of David Ireland's house, a rundown Victorian in the Mission District of San Francisco that the artist transformed into an environmental artwork, taking the detritus of his restoration labors as well as objects left behind by previous owners and refashioning them into sculptures. Constance M. Lewallen begins by recounting the history of the house from 1886, when it was built, until Ireland acquired it in 1975. She then details Ireland's renovation and continuing engagement with the site that served simultaneously as his residence, studio, and evolving artwork; the house's influence on his own work and that of artists who followed him; and its relationship to other house museums. An introduction by Jock Reynolds, who was close to the artist for many years, chronicles the social scene that developed around 500 Capp Street in the 1980s. The book also includes a 1983 article on the house by renowned poet John Ashbery. Illustrated with a generous selection of photographs taken over the years by the artist and his many visitors, this is an invaluable and intimate record of Ireland's best-known work. 500 Capp Street is essential reading for anyone interested in the artistic and cultural history of the San Francisco Bay Area and the California conceptual art movement.

335 pages : coloured illustrations, portraits ; 24 cm
The National Portrait Gallerys painted portrait Award, one of Britain's most prestigious art prizes, is the leading showcase for artists throughout the world specialising in portraiture. During the course of the past twenty - five years, portraits by more than 15,000 artists have been selected for the accompanying exhibition, which has attracted more than 4 million visitors. To celebrate this milestone, the National Portrait Gallery is publishing this new, updated edition of 500 Portraits, which features works from each of the twenty - five years since BPs sponsorship of the exhibition began in 1990. This highly illustrated compendium features more than 500 paintings from many of the best figurative artists active over the past quarter century, including Jonathan Yeo, Stuart Pearson Wright, Paul Emsley, Annabel Cullen and Ishbel Myerscough. Reflecting the diverse methods of contemporary portrait practice, the portraits, rendered in an array of styles from photorealism to expressionism, capture an exceptional wealth of subjects. From honest self - portraits and warm portrayals of families and children to fan portraits of celebrities and professionals in the workplace, the rich and varied selection demonstrates what inspires portrait painters. As well as the works that appeared in the exhibitions, the book includes reproductions of portraits commissioned by the Gallery from competition finalists. These include portraits of Dame Kelly Holmes, Sir Michael Caine, Sir Willard White and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Each year, one artist receives the Travel Award, which provides them with the opportunity to make paintings further afield; the best of these are featured in this new edition. This book is a key reference not only for anyone interested in the history of the Award and its impact on the status of portraiture in the UK, but also for students and professional artists alike. Originally published in 2010, 500 Portraits has received high praise from several readers: Simply the best book on this subject ever printed. My copy never gets put away and I'm already looking forward to the next volume. Comprehensive, useful, professional and very well presented. for studying compositions its really handy. I wouldn't be without it. A great selection of portraits in all styles.

"Cet ouvrage est le fruit d'une expérience originale et novatrice qui a été menée dans le cadre du Réseau Thématique Pluridisciplinaire "Visual Studies Les nouveaux inradigmes du visuel" initié par l'Institut des Sciences Humaines et Sociales du CNRS entre 2010 et 2012. Plusieurs spécialistes (psycho-cogniticiens, historiens 'de l'art, anthropologues, informaticiens, sociologues, artistes, spécialistes de la communication et de la muséologie) ont été invités à présenter non seulement leur conception, mais aussi les bases théoriques de leur approche des phénomènes visuels. Ont été retenus, dans une acception aussi large que possible de ceux-ci, les mécanismes physiologiques de la vision humaine, la production et les fonctions sociales des artefacts visuels (vêtements, photographies, images, oeuvres d'art...), la communication visuelle (journalisme, musées), mais aussi les ressources et outils numériques les plus récents utilisés par la création artistique contemporaine. En outre, une grande attention a été apportée aux questions nouvelles que posait cette approche pluridisciplinaire inédite. Ces grandes orientations commandent la division en quatre chapitres de cet ouvrage : Enjeux théoriques et épistémologiques Construction culturelle et sociale du visuel ? Perception, cognition, communication ? Sciences et technologies de l'art et des médias."--P. [4] of cover.

xviii, 358 pages, 16 pages of plates : illustrations (some color), plans ; 25 cm
  • Contents: Introduction: face-to-face with the Academie Royale. Part I The Official Face: An institutional image: portrait of the artist as an academician-- Rituals of initiation: becoming and being in the Academie-- On the wall: portraits, spaces, and everyday encounters at the Academie. Part II The Unofficial Face: Bloodlines: portraits of family-- Reciprocal acts: portraits of friendship-- Facing off: portraits of rivalry. Epilogue: the end of an institution-- Appendices-- Bibliography-- Index.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
From its establishment in 1648 until its disbanding in 1793 after the French Revolution, the Academie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture was the centre of the Parisian art world. Taking the reader behind the scenes of this elite bastion of French art theory, education, and practice, this engaging study uncovers the fascinating histories - official and unofficial - of that artistic community. Through an innovative approach to portraits - their values, functions, and lives as objects - this book explores two faces of the Academie. Official portraits grant us insider access to institutional hierarchies, ideologies, rituals, customs, and everyday experiences in the Academie's Louvre apartments. Unofficial portraits in turn reveal hidden histories of artists' personal relationships: family networks, intimate friendships, and bitter rivalries. Drawing on both art-historical and anthropological frames of analysis, this book offers insightful interpretations of portraits read through and against documentary evidence from the archives to create a rich story of people, places, and objects. Theoretically informed, rigorously researched, and historically grounded, this book sheds new light on the inner workings of the Academie. Its discoveries and compelling narrative make an invaluable and accessible contribution to our understanding of this pre-eminent European institution and the social lives of artists in early modern Paris.

  • Adolfo Wildt, le poète du clair-obscur -- Un art "inexorable et parfait" -- La sculpture de Wildt dans le contexte du novecento italiano -- "Un artiste sans sérénité et sans beauté." -- Le débat critique du vivant de Wildt -- L'archaïsme subtil et doré des dessins de Wildt -- L'enseignement idéal de Wildt : Fausto Melotti et Lucio Fontana -- Notices -- Introduction à l'art du marbre -- L'art du marbre -- Traduction intégrale du texte d'Adolfo Wildt -- Repères biographiques -- Liste des oeuvres exposées du vivant de Wildt -- Liste générale des expositions -- Bibliographie -- Index des oeuvres -- Index des noms propres.
"Sculpteur par excellence, Adolfo Wildt (1868-1931) est issu de la prestigieuse généalogie des tailleurs de marbre, des dominateurs du bloc comme Michel-Ange. Au tournant du siècle, il réconcilie l'artiste et l'artisan, donnant une dimension noble au travail du marbre. Proche du symbolisme, il a su élaborer un langage où l'expressionnisme se mêle aux réminiscences de l'art antique, du gothique, de la Renaissance, dans un équilibre inédit entre la force expressive du modèle et la grâce de motifs purement décoratifs. Présenté pour la première fois en France, l'oeuvre de Wildt, inclassable, parfois incompris, n'aura de cesse d'étonner, de fasciner voire de diviser."--P. [4] of cover.

Exploring how the universal visual language of geometric abstraction was influenced by different societies, this volume also demonstrates how the movement's revolutionary aesthetic continues to impact culture around the globe. It traces a century of abstract art from 1915 to the present day, celebrating the accomplishments of both men and women and includes sculpture, film, photography and painting. Organised around four distinct themes - communication, architectonics, utopia and everyday life - the book presents a chronological survey from Russia to Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Central America, Africa, South America, and the US. Each of the 100 works is featured in double-page spreads with brief artist biographies. Essays by Tanya Barson, Briony Fer, Tom McDonough, and Joshua Jiang, contextualize the various geographic and aesthetic stages of the development of geometric abstraction. Published in association with Whitechapel Gallery, London.

The first publication of the Barnes Foundation's important and extensive African art collection. The Barnes Foundation is renowned for its astonishing collection of Postimpressionist and early Modern art assembled by Albert C. Barnes, a Philadelphia pharmaceutical entrepreneur. Less known is the pioneering collection of African sculpture that Barnes acquired between 1922 and 1924, mainly from Paul Guillaume, the Paris-based dealer. The Barnes Foundation was one of the first permanent installations in the United States to present objects from Africa as fine art. Indeed, the African collection is central to understanding Barnes's socially progressive vision for his foundation. This comprehensive volume showcases all 123 objects, including reliquary figures, masks, and utensils, most of which originated in France's African colonies-Mali, Cote d'Ivoire, Gabon, and the Congo-as well as in Sierra Leone, Republic of Benin, and Nigeria. Christa Clarke considers the significance of the collection and Barnes's role in the Harlem Renaissance and in fostering broader appreciation of African art in the twentieth century. In-depth catalogue entries by noted scholars in the field complete the volume.

160 p. : ill. (chiefly col.) ; 26 cm
The book draws on a series of practitioner-led talks by the photographers John Duncan, Mary McIntyre, Donovan Wylvie, Paul Seawright, Kai Olaf Hesse and David Farrell, providing a discursive space that is part academy, part community activism and part cultural practice. These were intended to enable an exploration of contemporary photography in analytical proximity to what is going on currently across a range of disciplines: urbanism and the regeneration of the city, curatorial practices, the arts academy, community activism and photographic practice. Through placing contemporary photography in dialogue with other disciplines and the contested histories of the city, the series explored the centrality and complexity of meaning as an intersection of the social, political and aesthetic. After the Agreement makes public the critical conversations that systematically explore photography as civic negotiation and includes reproductions of a selection of photographs from the participating photographers: Paul Seawright's Conflicting Account, 2009; John Duncan's We Were Here, 2006, and Trees From Germany, 2003; Mary McIntyre's Interior Series, 1998 - 2000; David Farrell's Innocent Landscapes, 2001, and The Revisits, 2003; Donovan Wylvie's The Maze, 2004; and Kai Olaf Hesse's Topography of the Titantic, 2003.
