1. Cy Twombly [2017]

Book
317 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 29 cm
The American artist Cy Twombly (1928-2011) was one of the seminal artists of the second half of the twentieth century, with a complex oeuvre extending over six decades. His work brilliantly fused the legacy of American Abstract Expressionism with the intellectual rigor of classical European and Mediterranean culture, reflecting his extensive reading in history, classical literature, and mythology. This catalogue, edited by curator Jonas Storsve, accompanies a sweeping retrospective at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, one of the largest exhibitions on his work to date. Twombly s artistic development is traced through more than 200 paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs which span his entire career, including three major history painting cycles - Nine Discourses on Commodus (1963), Fifty Days at Iliam (1978), and Coronation of Sesostris (2000). From his early works at the beginning of the 1950s which were characterized by the interweaving of text with his signature scrawled lines, to his final, vibrantly colored, paintings, this survey underscores Twombly's career as a series of cycles in which he invented painting anew. Polyphonic in conception, Cy Twombly presents a range of views with essays that shed light on the various aspects and phases of his body of work. It includes reflections by contemporary artists (Sally Mann, Edmund de Waal, and Katharina Grosse, among others) as well as recollections by his former assistant, archivist, companion and the president of the Cy Twombly Foundation, Nicola Del Roscio. Together these multiple voices bring Cy Twombly to life, illuminating his creative process and the humanity that underlies his work.

Showcasing over 200 works (including painting, drawings, photographs, watercolours, iPad drawings, and his most recent multi-screen works) from across the six decades of his remarkable career, the book will delight existing fans of the artist, while giving new audiences the fullest possible introduction to his life and work.

"Les technologies numériques ont bouleversé la conception et la fabrication des objets, transformant la pratique des designers, architectes, artistes. Quel est le statut de l'auteur à l'ère de la production de ces objets "non standards", à la fois uniques et produits industriellement ? Quel est le statut de cet objet "imprimé" en 3D, tout à la fois objet du quotidien, objet technologique, oeuvre d'art, objet de design, prototype d'architecture ? De l'échelle du micro (imprimer des cellules vivantes) à celle du macro (imprimer des architectures à l'échelle 1:1), du visible à l'infra-visible, la fabrication additive soulève de multiples questions. Imprimer le monde interroge l'émergence dans la création artistique de ce nouvel artefact numérique imprimé en 3D."--Page 4 of cover.

"Cet ouvrage retrace la première exposition consacrée au mouvement surréaliste en Égypte. Il propose une incursion dans cet univers artistique, encore peu connu en Europe, à travers plus de 250 oeuvres inédites contextualisées. Bien au-delà d'une recherche esthétique, la création du mouvement est motivée par une véritable impulsion révolutionnaire. Celle-ci s'inscrit dans une pensée à contre-courant de l'opinion et du conformisme de l'époque. À travers de multiples disciplines plastiques (peinture, dessin, photographie) et littéraires, ce catalogue nous plonge dans le contexte artistique bouillonnant de l'Égypte des années 1930-1940."--Page 4 of cover.

A lively intellectual biography of one of the 20th century's most iconic buildings The Centre Georges Pompidou, also called Beaubourg, is today considered an icon of contemporary Paris, the quintessence of a modern building, and a model for what a museum can be. In 1971, Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, together with the engineering firm Ove Arup & Partners, won an international architecture competition with their innovative and irreverent design. Completed in 1977, the building was at first received skeptically by critics, yet it was quickly embraced by the public as a beloved monument of the modern city of Paris. This lively intellectual biography of the building explores its history and the reasons for its success, from its genesis as a politically calculated response to Paris's turbulent 1968 student protests to the role played by architects in its construction, as well as the historical influences and the engineering solutions that inform its design. A key reason for the Centre Pompidou's success indeed lies in its ability to channel architectural memory, connecting it powerfully to Paris's historic urban fabric. This essential text on one of the twentieth century's most significant buildings is accompanied by a portfolio of rare drawings and photographs.

Gerhard Richter is widely regarded as one of the most important painters at work today. He is as well known for his figurative works as he is for his abstract paintings, often combining elements of both in ground-breaking ways. Gerhard Richter: Panorama is the first and most complete overview of Richter's whole career. Where previous monographs have focused on a single aspect of his work, this stunningly illustrated survey encompasses his entire oeuvre, now stretching across more than a half-century of activity. It includes his photo-paintings, abstracts, landscapes and seascapes, portraits, colour charts, glass and mirror works, sculptures, drawings and photographs, providing the definitive account of Richter's colossal artistic achievements. Alongside his celebrated abstractions, early black-and-white paintings and the photorealist depictions of candles, skulls and clouds that have become indisputable icons of modern painting, this new edition of Panorama includes over forty paintings made between 2000 and 2015, studio photographs and archival images, alongside texts by an array of international critics and curators.With more than 300 illustrations, and an interview with the artist by Nicholas Serota, Director of Tate, this landmark publication remains the most comprehensive survey of one of the world's most pre-eminent contemporary artists.

"Comptant parmi les artistes français les plus marquants de sa génération, Hervé Télémaque (né en Haïti en 1937) commence sa carrière de peintre à New York, avant de s'installer définitivement à Paris, où il contribue à l'émergence au début des années 1960 du mouvement de la figuration narrative. D'abord situé au point de rencontre du surréalisme et du pop art, son oeuvre puise autant dans son histoire personnelle que dans une profonde réflexion autour de l'objet, qui permet à Télémaque d'explorer sur un mode ludique les relations entre image et langage. Longtemps adepte de la "ligne claire" et combinant souvent peinture et objets réels, Télémaque porte tout au long de son évolution un regard à la fois poétique et politique sur le monde, sans jamais renier ses racines haïtiennes. Avec un ensemble de peintures témoignant de la diversité de son oeuvre, de son acuité critique et de sa réjouissante ironie, la rétrospective organisée par le Centre Pompidou à la Fondation Clément en Martinique constitue la première exposition de cette importance dans la région et signe le grand retour de Télémaque dans la Caraïbe."--Page 4 of cover.

16. Frank Gehry [2015]

Book
255 pages : illustrations (chiefly color), plans ; 29 cm
Arranged chronologically, this book follows the arc of Gehry's later career, during which he has focused mainly on public and cultural facilities. The book explores how Gehry has overcome technological setbacks and aesthetic backlash, never wavering from his vision. It examines his work in the context of the urban environment, showing how Gehry continually strives to make cities "less boring" and to create urban buildings that echo their surroundings. The buildings profiled here - including the Vitra International Furniture Manufacturing Facility and Design Museum in Switzerland, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the 8 Spruce Street Skyscraper (Beekman Tower) in New York, and the Fondation Louis Vuitton - are represented in dazzling colour photographs as well as preparatory drawing, plans and models. From his early years working within the L.A. Art Scene, to his Pritzker-winning stardom, to his current fascination with the application of computer-aided-design in such areas as cancer research, Frank Gehry, now in his ninth decade, continues to surprise and inspire the public. This informative, fascinating volume is a must-have for his ardent fans and anyone interested in architecture.

Karel Appel: Works on Paper presents the artist's drawings, which have rarely been exhibited. Appel did not consider his drawings byproducts of painting. In spontaneous creative bursts, he frequently produced works on paper that helped him clarify his art as a whole. Thus, the childlike creatures of the early years, the almost abstract expressive outbursts of the 1950s, and the experiments with collage can be experienced in a completely unique way in his drawings.
