This exquisitely illustrated volume features 150 works from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's rich holdings of Islamic art. The objects - including brilliantly glazed pottery, enameled and gilded glass, inlaid metalwork, carved ornamental stone and wood, sumptuous woven textiles, and vividly illuminated and superbly written manuscripts and single pages - span the area extending from southern Spain to northern India, and range in date from the 7th century up to the modern era. Full-color plate images are accompanied by descriptions in both English and Arabic, organized chronologically and thematically. Among the book's essays is an illustrated narration of the museum's recently conserved Damascus Room. Published here for the first time, this stunning room retains its original brightly painted surfaces. Beautiful and authoritative, this book is an essential guide to global Islamic art.

18. Richard Serra [2014]

Book
288 p. : ill. ; 31 cm
This publication accompanies Richard Serra's (born 1938) pair of exhibitions in Qatar in 2014, at the QMA Gallery at Katara and the Alriwaq Doha exhibition space, as well as his permanent installations "7" and "East-West/West-East, " both commissioned by the Qatar Museums Authority. Instead of retracing Serra's career chronologically, as is usual in the artist's exhibition catalogues, this book comprises eight thematic chapters that do not aim to investigate all of his work. Rather, this organization facilitates a closer examination of the development of specific bodies of work and thereby a fresh understanding of Serra's overall oeuvre. Each chapter is built around the works shown at the QMA Gallery and Alriwaq Doha, as well as "7, " installed in MIA Park in Doha in 2011, and "East-West/West-East, " installed in 2014 at a site chosen by the artist in the Brouq Nature Reserve near Zekreet.
