Con una mostra dedicata a Giacomo Balla festeggia i suoi trent’anni la Galleria Fonte d’Abisso di Milano, fedele allo spirito che ha contraddistinto la sua attività, da sempre improntata alla riscoperta e divulgazione del futurismo, una tendenza artistica che, negli anni settanta, era fortemente discussa e svalutata. Attraverso una quarantina di opere, questa inedita esposizione mette a confronto le due “anime”, di pittore e di scultore, di Giacomo Balla, che seppe essere grande, inventivo e geniale in entrambe le espressioni artistiche. Documentata nel catalogo è infine una scelta di dipinti e disegni in cui appare con evidenza la costante riflessione sulla tridimensionalità da lui condotta in pittura. Il catalogo, che accoglie i testi critici di Ada Masoero e Giovanni Lista, è completato da apparati bibliografici.

The success of the Ballets Russes was legendary, but there is more to the legend than its name: the actual story, the adventure - conceived by one man and lived by a few-that lasted only eight seasons and three summers. From 1911 to 1914, Serge Diaghilev, driven by conviction and stubbornness, turned his vision into reality. He collaborated with Leon Bakst, Igor Stravinsky, and Pablo Picasso (to name a few) to create an explosion of creativity in Western Europe the likes of which had never been seen in the world of art. Thanks to Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, the most illustrious page in the history of ballet, one of the most glorious moments in the adventure of art, was written. To turn the pages of this stunning tome is to follow Diaghilev's on his creative quest, one that continues to influence art, theater, ballet, and fashion to this day.

Catalogue d'exposition à la Fondation Beyeler (2018)
En 2018, la Fondation Beyeler a consacré une rétrospective majeure au célèbre peintre français d'origine polonaise. Son chef-d'oeuvre monumental, Passage du Commerce-Saint-André, en prêt de longue durée à la Fondation Beyeler, est le point de départ de cette exposition. Cette peinture énigmatique réunit les préoccupations intenses de Balthus pour les dimensions spatiales et temporelles de l'image et leur relation à la figure et à l'objet. Suivant le fil rouge de ces considérations, ce catalogue réunit une cinquantaine de peintures majeures issues de toutes ses périodes. Dans cette perspective sont mises en lumière les stratégies parfois provocatrices de la mise en scène picturale de Balthus mais aussi l'ironie de son art.

Vitra Design Museum, 2022
This volume documents the Baranger Motion Displays of the R.F. Collection housed at the Vitra Design Museum. “Motion Displays,” as they were known, were conceived as eye-catching and novel moving objects, which were used in jewelers’ shop-window displays―primarily in the US―to attract customers. With large-scale illustrations of the Motion Displays and an atmospheric photo essay featuring black-and-white details of the objects, the book provides an unprecedented and in-depth view into this collection. In an accompanying essay, Bill Shaffer traces the success story of the displays and sheds light on the significance of the red cases in which they were delivered to the jewelers. In order for readers to be able to experience the wonders of these moving objects for themselves, each Motion Display has been given a QR code in the book which links to an entertaining video clip of the display in action.English - 140 Pages - 32.5 cm x 34 cm - 1.8 Kg
Peter Selz, Anthony F. Janson
Barbara Chase-Riboud is of the most significant one and original artists of her generation -- a sculptor whose dramatic explorations of literary and historical themes have earned her a presence in major museums around the world. This richly illustrated book presents the first comprehensive overview of Chase-Riboud's 30-year career as a sculptor and draftsman. Distinguished art historians Peter Selz and Anthony F. Janson show how history, archaeology, spiritualism, the Baroque tradition, and Chase-Riboud's parallel career as a poet-novelist (Sally Hemings, Echo of Lions) have influenced her work, from the Malcolm X, Tantra, Zanzibar, and Cleopatra series to her recent monument Africa Rising, the award-winning New York City landmark that commemorates a colonial slave-era African-American burial ground.
