"L'exposition "21 rue La Boétie" retrace le parcours singulier et exceptionnel de Paul Rosenberg (1881-1959), qui fut l'un des plus grands marchands d'art de la première moitié du XXe siècle. Elle rassemble plus de soixante chefs-d'oeuvre de l'art moderne (Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Georges Braque, Henri Matisse, Marie Laurencin...), pour certains inédits en France et provenant de collections publiques de premier plan telles que le Centre Pompidou, le musée d'Orsay, le Musée Picasso à Paris, ou encore le Deutsches Historisches Museum à Berlin, mais aussi d'importantes collections particulières comme celle de David Nahmad. De nombreuses oeuvres sont directement liées au marchand, pour avoir transité par ses galeries, à Paris ou à New York, alors que d'autres renvoient au contexte historique et artistique de l'époque. Conçue par Tempora et produite par Culturespaces au musée Maillol à Paris, cette exposition bénéficie du soutien actif d'Anne Sinclair, petite-fille de Paul Rosenberg, auteur de l'ouvrage éponyme 21 rue La Boétie (paru aux éditions Grasset & Fasquelle en 2012)."--Page 4 of cover.

Rain machines; alarmed kosher pickle jars filled with gemstones; replica corn flakes boxes; 'disco decor'; time capsules; art bombs; birthday presents; perfume bottles and floating silver pillows that are clouds; paintings that are also films; museum interventions; collected and curated projects; expanded performance environments; holograms. This is a book about the vast array of sculptural work made by Andy Warhol between 1954 and 1987 - a period that begins long before the first Pop paintings and ends in the year of his death. In 3D Warhol, Thomas Morgan Evans argues that Warhol's engagement with sculpture, and traditional notions of sculpture, produced 'trespasses', his sculptural work bisected the expectations, allegiances and values within art historical, and ultimately social sites of investitute (or territories). This groundbreaking, original book brings to the forefront a major, but overlooked aspect of Warhol's oeuvre, providing an essential new perspective on the artist's legacy.

4D Hyperlocal: A Cultural Tool Kit for the Open-source City The evolution of digital tools is revolutionising urban design, planning and community engagement. This is enabling a new hyperlocal mode of design made possible by geolocation technologies and GPS-enabled mobile devices that support connectivity through open-source applications. Real-time analysis of environments and individuals input and feedback bring a new immediacy and responsiveness. Established linear design methods are being replaced by adaptable mapping processes, real-time data streams and experiential means, fostering more dynamic spatial analysis and public feedback. This shifts the emphasis in urban design from the creation of objects and spaces to collaboration with users, and from centralised to distributed participatory systems. Hyperlocal tools foster dynamic relational spatial analysis, making their deployment in urban and rural contexts challenged by transformation particularly significant. How can hyperlocal methods, solutions including enterprise-driven uses of technology for bioclimatic design and contexts influence each other and support the evolution of participatory architectural design? What issues, for example, arise from using real-time data to test scenarios and shape environments through 3D digital visualisation and simulation methods? What are the advantages of using GIS with its integrative and visualising capacities and relational, flexible definition of scale with GPS for multi-scalar mapping?

  • Abraham Poincheval, l'humanité en suspens / par Thomas Schlesser -- Habiter au coeur des choses / entretien entre Abraham Poincheval et Adélaïde Blanc -- Abraham Poincheval, humanity in suspension / by Thomas Schlesser -- Living in the heart of things / between Abraham Poincheval and Adélaïde Blanc.
"Abraham Poincheval est un explorateur insatiable. Qu'il s'agisse de traverser les Alpes en poussant une capsule qui lui sert d'abri ou de s'enfermer une semaine dans un rocher, ses expéditions ?itinérantes ou statiques- nécessitent un engagement total du corps. Les sculptures habitables que l'artiste conçoit sont des laboratoires au moyen desquels il fait l'expérience du temps, de l'enfermement ou de l'immobilité. Elles sont l'enveloppe qui accueille le performeur, l'objet qui perturbe le paysage et qui existe à travers les récits des témoins. Les deux nouvelles performances d'Abraham Poincheval au Palais de Tokyo le conduisent à expérimenter les temporalités des règnes animal et minéral."--Page 4 of cover.

6. Abstract art [2017]

Book
95 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 27 cm.
Let's get abstract Making sense of revolutionary new forms Abstraction shook Western art to its core. In the early part of the 20th century, it refuted the reign of clear, indisputable forms and confronted audiences instead with vivid visual poems devoid of conventional, representational imagery and characterized instead by allegories of emotion and sensation. This radical artistic adventure established new artistic means, as much as narratives. Expression became characterized by shocking juxtapositions of color, light, and line. Artist abandoned the conventions of brush and easel and played with new materials and methods of artistic gesture commercial paints and housepainter's brushes, working on unstretched and unprimed canvases, moving the canvas to the floor, and applying paint with hands. This essential introduction spans the international breadth, conceptual depth, and seismic impact of Abstract art with a thorough survey not only of the big names such as Picasso, Klee, Kline, Rothko, and Pollock, but also lesser-known figures who made equally significant abstract contributions, including Antoni Tàs; pies, K.O. Gotz, Ad Reinhardt, and Sophie Taeuber-Arp.

  • Introduction : spectatorship after abstract art
  • Concrete art and invention
  • Time-objects
  • Subjective instability
  • The instituting subject
  • Conclusion.
During the mid-twentieth century, Latin American artists working in several different cities radically altered the nature of modern art. Reimagining the relationship of art to its public, these artists granted the spectator a greater role than ever before in the realization of the artwork. The first book to explore this phenomenon on an international scale, 'Abstraction in Reverse' traces the movement as it evolved across South America and parts of Europe. Alexander Alberro demonstrates that artists such as Tomas Maldonado, Jesus Soto, Julio Le Parc, and Lygia Clark, in breaking with the core tenets of the form of abstract art known as Concrete art, redefined the role of both the artist and the spectator. Instead of manufacturing autonomous artworks prior to the act of viewing, these artists presented a range of projects that required the spectator in order to be complete. Importantly, as Alberro shows, these artists set aside regionalist art in favor of a modernist approach that transcended the traditions of any nation-state. Along the way, the artists fundamentally altered the concept of the subject and of how art should address its audience, a revolutionary development with parallels in the greater art world.

Russian avant-garde art the exciting art movement that flourished in Russia in the years surrounding the 1917 revolution resulted in remarkable works of art, architecture, literature, film, theater, dance, and graphic design. The first non-figurative art movement, it was enormously important in the development of modern art. This lavishly illustrated exhibition catalog looks at six major works by six renowned Russian artists: Kazimir Malevich, Vladimir Tatlin, Ivan Kliun, Ilja Chashnik, El Lissitzky, and Lyubov Popova. Stunning reproductions are accompanied by original documents, objects, manuscripts, and photographs from the collection of art historian Andrei Nakov. Nakov also writes on how, in the late 1950s, Canadian diplomats posted to Moscow were instrumental in helping form the collection of George Costakis, who worked at the Canadian Embassy and whose collection of Constructivist and other Russian avant-garde works grew to become the largest and most representative collection anywhere.".

A different set of purposes define culture today than those that preoccupied the world in the immediate decades of decolonization. Focusing on art and music in diverse parts of the world, Daniel Herwitz explores a world that has largely shifted from the earlier days of nationalism, decolonization and cultural exclusion, to one of global markets and networks. Using examples from India and Mexico to South Africa, Australia and China, Herwitz argues that the cultural politics and art being produced in these places are now post- postcolonial. Where the postcolonial downplayed formerly Eurocentric forms and celebrated art with national consciousness, the rules for 21st century cultural authenticity are quickly disappearing. Young people think of themselves in relation to global culture rather than nation----building; the project of producing a new and modern art for the incipient and rising postcolonial nation is out of date. By examining the shift in which art accesses the past and the rise of trends such as hitching consumer culture to celebrity forms and branding, Herwitz's original and engaging exploration of contemporary art captures the ways in which art has given way to a new form of production, altering everything from the role of tradition and heritage in contemporary art to the terms of its vision and circulation.

Echoing Joseph Paxton's question at the close of the Great Exhibition, 'What is to become of the Crystal Palace?', this interdisciplinary essay collection argues that there is considerable potential in studying this unique architectural and art-historical document after 1851, when it was rebuilt in the South London suburb of Sydenham. It brings together research on objects, materials and subjects as diverse as those represented under the glass roof of the Sydenham Palace itself; from the Venus de Milo to Sheffield steel, souvenir 'peep eggs' to war memorials, portrait busts to imperial pageants, tropical plants to cartoons made by artists on the spot, copies of paintings from ancient caves in India to 1950s film. Essays do not simply catalogue and collect this eclectic congregation, but provide new ways for assessing the significance of the Sydenham Crystal Palace for both nineteenth- and twentieth-century studies. The volume will be of particular interest to researchers and students of British cultural history, museum studies, and art history.

The Afterlives of Greek Sculpture is the first comprehensive, historical account of the afterlives of ancient Greek monumental sculptures. Whereas scholars have traditionally focused on the creation of these works, Rachel Kousser instead draws on archaeological and textual sources to analyze the later histories of these sculptures, reconstructing the processes of damage and reparation that characterized the lives of Greek images. Using an approach informed by anthropology and iconoclasm studies, Kousser describes how damage to sculptures took place within a broader cultural context. She also tracks the development of an anti-iconoclastic discourse in Hellenic society from the Persian wars to the death of Cleopatra. Her study offers a fresh perspective on the role of the image in ancient Greece. It also sheds new light on the creation of Hellenic cultural identity and the formation of collective memory in the Classical and Hellenistic eras.

The first in-depth exploration of the artistic and cultural achievements of China's "classical" era Age of Empires presents the art and culture of China during one of the most critical periods of its history - the four centuries from 221 B.C. to A.D. 200-- when, for the first time, people of diverse backgrounds were brought together under centralized imperial rule that fostered a new and unified identity. The Qin and Han empires represent the "classical" era of Chinese civilization, coinciding in both importance and timing with the Greco-Roman period in the West. Under the short-lived Qin and centuries-long Han, warring principalities were united under a common emperor, creating not only political and intellectual institutions but also the foundation for a Chinese art, culture, and national identity that lasted over two millennia. Over 150 works from across the full breadth of Chinese artistic and decorative media-- including ceramics, metalwork, textiles, armor, sculpture, and jewelry - are featured in this book and attest to the unprecedented role of art in ancient Chinese culture. These stunning objects, among them soldiers from the renowned terracotta army of Qin Shihuang, China's first emperor, are drawn from institutions and collections in China and appear here together for the first time. Essays by leading scholars, accompanied by dazzling new photography of the objects, address the sweeping societal changes underway, and trace a progression from the early, formative years through unprecedented sophistication and technical accomplishment-embodied in an artistic legacy that reverberates in China's national identity to this day.

"Célèbre de son vivant - près de 100 000 visiteurs défilèrent le jour de la Toussaint, en 1899, lors du dévoilement de son grand Monument aux morts au cimetière du Père-Lachaise -, encensé par une critique unanime, Grand Prix de sculpture de l'Exposition universelle de 1900, Albert Bartholomé atteint une renommée internationale presque équivalente à celle d'Auguste Rodin. Peintre naturaliste, ami intime de Degas, Bartholomé se tourne vers la sculpture à la mort de son épouse Prospérie de Fleury; au cimetière de Bouillant, à Crépy-en-Valois, il réalise pour sa tombe un monument en bronze d'une intense force dramatique. Bustes de ses amis, nus délicats et groupe en marbre (Adam et Ève du musée de l'Ermitage), baigneuses épanouies et portraits en buste inspirés par Florence, son jeune modèle devenu sa seconde épouse, alterneront par la suite dans un style simplifié annonciateur de la sculpture des années 1920. En 1912, son Monument à Jean-Jacques Rousseau pour le Panthéon reçoit les louanges de la critique. L'État lui commandera la création de la Croix de guerre en 1915 et il réalisera des monuments aux morts de la Grande Guerre particulièrement émouvants. La redécouverte de l'oeuvre d'Albert Bartholomé, tombé dans un oubli aussi profond qu'injuste, nous révèle "qu'on doit désormais compter avec ce grand sculpteur et qu'on devrait peut-être voir en lui, dans l'essence même de son art, le seul et le véritable rival de Rodin.""--Page 4 of cover.

"Né en Russie en 1889, Alexandre Zinoview s'installe à Paris en 1908 au coeur du Montparnasse bohème, côtoyant Picasso, Foujita ou Diego Rivera. Il participe au bouillonnement artistique de l'époque, expose aux Salons, mais est aussi au service de la police secrète tsariste, pour qui il espionne les révolutionnaires russes en exil. Quand éclate la Première Guerre mondiale, Zinoview répond à l'appel de Blaise Cendrars et s'engage comme volontaire. Versé à la Légion étrangère, il part sur le front de Champagne, où il intègrera en 1915 l'Ambulance russe. Son séjour au Corps expéditionnaire russe (1916-1917) bascule avec la révolution en Russie et la mutinerie de La Courtine. Fin 1918, après de longs mois à l'hôpital, Zinoview part aux États-Unis avec une délégation de la Légion promouvoir le dernier emprunt de guerre.' L'armistice le trouve au Canada, angoissé par le retour à la vie civile alors que sa double vie d'agent a été révélée. Artiste éclectique dans ses inspirations, Zinoview s'empare de nombreuses techniques, utilise de multiples supports. Par son art de la composition et les postures de ses personnages, il fait de son expérience de la guerre un authentique théâtre un théâtre personnel où il met en scène sa vision de l'humanité et ses fantasmes, mais aussi le théâtre des opérations, des nationalismes et des passions politiques, celui des souffrances collectives, des émotions singulières et des destins individuels. Ce livre retrace pour la première fois ce destin hors norme et met en lumière un parcours artistique singulier."--Page 4 of cover.

Alice Hawkins Displaying an uncommon flair for storytelling that imbues each image with a sense of the sublime, Alice Hawkins's work explores the importance of individuality, role play, dressing up, fantasy and playfulness, all of which have become hallmarks of her career. Her extended series of stylized 'fashion portraits' around the world question and ultimately celebrate beauty and the representation of those outside of the mainstream. Her photographs for some of the world's leading fashion magazines document men and women found on 'road trips' in far-flung locations. For these, Hawkins works with friends, people she sees on the street or locals whose particular style or appearance she has sought out (and who often become friends), rather than fashion models. Organized by location and interspersed with short contributions from some of Hawkins's key mentors and collaborators, Alice's Adventures is a mesmerizing and highly original visual journey that will inspire those interested in a fresh, contemporary approach to fashion and photography.
