Book
255 p. : ill. (chiefly col.), maps (chiefly col.) ; 24 x 26 cm.
As seen in O: The Oprah Magazine, the New York Times Book Review, USA Today, Cool Hunting, and countless other media outlets, The Map as Art is available now in a paperback edition. This volume by Katharine Harmon, author of our best-selling book You Are Here, extends that book's celebration of mapmaking to the world of artists' maps.It is little surprise that in an era of globalized politics, culture, and ecology contemporary artists are drawn to mapsto express their visions. Using paint, salt, souvenir tea towels, or their own bodies, map artists explore a world free ofgeographical constraints. In The Map as Art, Harmon collects 360 colorful, map-related artistic visions by well-known artists--such as Ed Ruscha, Julian Schnabel, Olafur Eliasson, William Kentridge, and Vik Muniz--and many more less-familiar artists for whom maps are the inspiration for creating art. Essays by Gayle Clemans bring an in-depth look into the artists' maps of Joyce Kozloff, Landon Mackenzie, Ingrid Calame, Guillermo Kuitca, and Maya Lin. Together, the beautiful reproductions and telling commentary make this an essential volume for anyone open to exploring new paths.

Maps can be simple tools, comfortable in their familiar form. Or they can lead to different destinations: places turned upside down or inside out, territories riddled with marks understood only by their maker, realms connected more to the interior mind than to the exterior world. These are the places of artists' maps, that happy combination of information and illusion that flourishes in basement studios and downtown galleries alike. It is little surprise that, in an era of globalized politics, culture, and ecology, contemporary artists are drawn to maps to express their visions. Using paint, salt, souvenir tea towels, or their own bodies, map artists explore a world free of geographical constraints. Katharine Harmon knows this territory. As the author of our best-selling book You Are Here, she has inspired legions of new devotees of imaginative maps. In The Map as Art, Harmon collects 360 colorful, map-related artistic visions by well-known artistssuch as Ed Ruscha, Julian Schnabel, Olafur Eliasson, Maira Kalman, William Kentridge, and Vik Munizand many more less-familiar artists for whom maps are the inspiration for creating art. Essays by Gayle Clemans bring an in-depth look into the artists' maps of Joyce Kozloff, Landon Mackenzie, Ingrid Calame, Guillermo Kuitca, and Maya Lin. Together, the beautiful reproductions and telling commentary make this an essential volume for anyone open to exploring new paths.

Marlene Dumas is celebrated around the world for her highly charged depictions of the human form. In her oil paintings, drawings and watercolours she captures the body in all its states, from pain to pleasure, eroticism to pathos, birth to death. These works often focus on the body as a contested site with regard to issues such as race, pornography and illegal immigration, but they also address such timeless themes as mortality, sexuality and childhood. Above all, they express a boundless faith in the power of painting to communicate complex psychological realities with eloquence and humour. Born in Cape Town, South Africa, in 1953, Dumas has lived in Amsterdam since 1976. Her work has been the subject of major solo exhibitions at museums such as the Tate Gallery in London (1996), the Centre Pompidou in Paris (2001) and the Museum of Modern Art in New York (2008). It has also been featured around the world in major group exhibitions such as Documenta (1982, 1992) and biennials in Sydney (1984, 2000), Sao Paulo (1985), Johannesburg (1995), Venice (1995, 2003, 2005) and Shanghai (2000). This revised and expanded edition of her landmark "Phaidon" monograph has been completely redesigned and updated with new essays and full-colour reproductions of recent works. In the Survey chapter, Dutch art critic Dominic van den Boogerd examines Dumas' work in relation to a range of conceptual legacies in depictions of the human figure. For the Interview New York artist Barbara Bloom discusses with Dumas issues ranging from intellectual process to the representation of the self in art. Journalist and former Editor of "Vogue Italia Mariuccia Casadio" looks at the painting Josephine (1997) in the Focus, reflecting on the iconic legacy of its subject, Josephine Baker. For her Artist's Choice Dumas has selected two authors: Oscar Wilde, whose story "The Fisherman and His Soul" inspired the artist's early series of works on the theme of mermaids; and Jean Genet, whose autobiography "Le Journal du Voleur" (1949, translation "Thief's Journal", 1964) finds transgressive beauty in the criminal underworld. Marlene Dumas has often acted as a spokesperson for her work, and Artist's Writings features many seminal texts on her own art as well as meditations on love, religion and politics. Ilaria Bonacossa's "Update" essay provides a complete overview of Dumas' recent paintings and drawings, charting themes in each successive body of work from 1999 to the present. An extensive Chonology, illustrated with snapshots, sketches and ephemera - some never before published - provides a complete overview of Dumas' career to date.

Drawing is a language, a necessary skill for anyone who wants to express ideas or feelings in written images. Like all languages, it can be mastered with practice and instruction. Author Keith Micklewright distills a lifetime of hard thinking about drawing, presenting techniques-along with exercises-that help us become fluent at visual communication. The advantage of his approach is that drawing is seen as a flexible form of expression rather than a set of mechanical skills. There is no right way to draw creatively, anymore than there is one style of writing creatively. To drive this point home, Micklewright illustrates the book with marvelous drawings by great artists, from Old Masters to the present, that range from precise portraiture to ecstatic nature studies. There is no other book on the subject that combines such a deep, lucid text with such a generous collection of inspirational art.
