Anselm Kiefer Transition from Cool to Warm
Anselm Kiefer Transition from Cool to Warm
More than forty unique artists s books, their pages painted with gesso to mimic marble, can be found in the exciting new tome. Artists s books are an integral part of Kiefer s oeuvre; over time they have ranged in scale from the intimate to the monumental, and in materials, from lead to dried plant matter. In this selection of books, the sequences of narrative information and visual effect evoke the fragile endurance of the sacred and the spiritual through the female figures on the marbled pages.

Art & How it Works An Introduction to Art for Children
Art & How it Works An Introduction to Art for Children
This enticing introduction to art appreciation for children looks at art history, themes in art, and art techniques - from cave paintings to modern art.

Children will learn to step back, think, and look at art in a new way. This fabulous book explores themes in art, including women in art and symbolism in art. Kids will be encouraged to look closely at a painting and understand why and how it was made.

By tapping into STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Maths), Art . . . And How it Works helps with the understanding of colour and the materials artists use. The mathematical side of art will be highlighted and kids will learn about patterns and shapes in art.

The book looks at the history of art for kids - from prehistoric paintings, Impressionism, abstract art, through to the art of today. It includes biographies of major artists from Fra Angelico to David Hockney. Art . . . And How it Works cuts through the jargon that surrounds the art world and offers a fresh, new, and accessible approach for kids.

Art & Queer Culture
Art & Queer Culture
A revised, updated edition of the acclaimed historical overview of Queer art - available for the first time in paperback

Updated and revised, Art & Queer Culture is a comprehensive and definitive survey of artworks that have constructed, contested, or otherwise responded to alternative forms of sexuality. Rather than focusing exclusively on artists who self-identify as gay or lesbian, Art & Queer Culture instead traces the shifting possibilities and constraints of sexual identity that have provided visual artists with a rich creative resource over the last 130 years - and it does so in an accessible, authoritative voice, and with a wealth of rarely-seen imagery.

Art & Religion in the 21st Century
Art & Religion in the 21st Century
Contrary to the expectations of 20th-century rationalists, religion has not faded away in the 21st century, but roared back onto the scene with renewed vitality. This survey shows how religious themes and images continue to permeate the work of contemporary artists from across the globe. Some exploit the shock potential of religious imagery, but many also reflect deeply on spiritual matters. The introduction outlines the debates and controversies that the art-religion connection has precipitated throughout history. Each of the ten chapters opens by introducing a theme, followed by a selection of works of art that develop that theme. The book encompasses a wide range of media and genres, from sculpture to street art, and considers faith in its broadest sense from Islam and Christianity to Aboriginal mythology and meditation.

Art Making with MoMA , from educators at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, presents twenty interactive activities that invite kids (and adults!) to discover the materials and techniques of modern and contemporary artists.

Art Making with MoMA encourages personal expression and creative exploration by incorporating materials similar to, and inspired by, those used by artists.

Each project is inspired by a particular artist, movement or design concept, including Cindy Sherman, Romare Bearden, Alexander Calder, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Charles and Ray Eames. In addition to illustrated step-by-step instructions, tips and open-ended questions encourage kids to tap into their own ideas and experiences as they explore new and established techniques for making art. With a range of activities that can be done alone or in a group, many of them with materials scavenged from around the house, this book will inspire hours of tinkering, designing, constructing, creating and discussion.
