Book Description
Fans of Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely will delight in this first ever collection of their radiant posters. Niki de Saint Phalle’s bold, colorful work lent itself perfectly to graphic design when she started producing posters in the early 1970s. Likewise, her partner Jean Tinguely began creating poster art around the same time. Both artists developed their talent in this genre and this lively collection offers brilliant reproductions of their most important posters, many of which the two artists collaborated on together. This selection includes posters with Niki de Saint Phalle’s signature "Nanas," Jean Tinguely’s abstract chromatic compositions and some posters on which the two artists collaborated. This beautifully produced volume includes an enlightening introduction by Isabel Siben and an...

From Library Journal
The grandfather of postmodernism and a consummate trickster, Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) remains one of the most complicated characters in art history. In addition to an intellectually demanding oeuvre, he made public statements about his life and work that were often elusive, even contradictory. Journalist and historian Marquis (Alfred H. Barr, Jr.) sets out to present what she feels is a much-needed objective look at the artist, the man, and the conundrum. Though she doesn't attempt to discredit Duchamp or previous Duchamp scholarship, she doesn't take his Olympian stature at face value either. Even Duchamp enthusiasts who might bristle at statements like "Duchamp's art, like tripe, is an acquired taste" will likely thrill to the previously unpublished interviews, letters, and bits of gossip contained ...

Book Description
A scintillating story about the love and work of two people who together epitomized the avant-garde of the late twentieth century. One of modern art’s most productive relationships, the story of Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely is a tale of passion and creativity that started, literally, with a bang when the two artists met while working on their respective seminal exhibitions. Tinguely was taking the art world by storm with his self-destructing piece, "Homage to New York." De Saint Phalle was creating her infamous gunshot performances. Together these iconoclastic geniuses would challenge convention and each other with their visions, collaborating on such major projects as the Tarot Garden in Tuscany, the Paradis Fantastique for the 1967 Expo in Montreal, and the Golem playground in Jerusalem. These and...

Book Description
Mario Botta: Architectural Poetics is the newest book in the Universe architecture series. This volume presents the work of the Swiss-born architect who worked as an assistant to such architecture giants as Le Corbusier and Louis I. Kahn before starting his own firm in 1970 and achieving international fame. Botta' characteristic respect for topographical conditions and regional sensibilities, his deft craftsmanship and the importance of geometric order in his work are evidenced in thirty projects that range from smaller residential buildings to such grandiose projects as the Church of San Giovanni Battista, the Jean Tinguely Museum and, most famously, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. This detailed study also includes the designs he created for furniture and the stage. Mario Botta: Architectural...

From Publishers Weekly
Since he started out in 1965, Botta has designed more than 300 buildings and has become known for creating spaces that not only relate seamlessly to their environment, but are particularly successful at reflecting, projecting and encouraging the uninterrupted flow of light into a space. This book highlights his most notable projects-populist victories like the Municipal Library in Dortmund, Germany; personal gems like two weekend houses in the mountains of Locarno-Cardada, Switzerland; the highly acclaimed Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MART) in Rovereto, Italy; and breathtakingly dramatic modernist designs like the Kyobo Tower in Seoul, Korea. Though the book does a first-rate job of representing each work, using fine photography and descriptive summaries, the essays in the front are far from...
