Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo in Detroit
Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo in
A landmark publication focusing on both Rivera and Kahlo during a critical year in each of their careers From April 1932 through March 1933, Diego Rivera (1886–1957) and Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) spent a dramatic and pivotal sojourn in Detroit. Against the backdrop of the Great Depression and amid labor protests in the city, Rivera created his Detroit Industry murals, one of the most important and accomplished works of art made in the United States in the 20th century, for the Detroit Institute of Arts. Kahlo, meanwhile, developed her own artistic identity almost unnoticed, emerging with an oeuvre of extraordinarily expressive work. For this beautifully illustrated catalogue, Mark Rosenthal and a team of scholars have written essays that examine the artists, the city of Detroit in this period, and the commissioning of the murals by Edsel Ford, the patron, and William Valentiner, then director of the museum. Rivera’s cartoons for the murals are highlighted along with new archival research conducted by Rivera’s grandson, Juan Rafael Coronel Rivera. Featuring more than 100 color illustrations of works by both artists, this book presents Detroit as a profoundly important place for the artistic development of Rivera and Kahlo.

Jean Dubuffet: Anticultural Positions
Jean Dubuffet: Anticultural
The catalogue to a groundbreaking exhibition of Dubuffet’s seminal “Art Brut” and including historic essays by the artist published in English for the first time. Jean Dubuffet is a French painter and sculptor who painted in a deliberately crude manner, inspired by art of the mentally ill or “Art Brut.” Dubuffet developed a technique of thick impasto and frequently incorporated unorthodox materials ranging from cement and gravel to leaves, dust, and even butterfly wings into his works. His controversial materials and mark-making solidified his legacy as an iconoclastic figure in the canon of postwar European paintings, and his work has been exhibited and collected all over the world. This is the first book to be published on Dubuffet’s early work in painting and sculpture in more than two decades. Organized by Mark Rosenthal, the exhibition focuses on Dubuffet’s work from 1943 to 1959, and emphasizes the artist’s anticultural approach in his depiction of subjects and his use of unorthodox materials. Several works by the French painter are on loan from private collections and museums.

Joseph Beuys: Actions, Vitrines, Environments
Joseph Beuys: Actions, Vitrines,
Joseph Beuys (1921–1986)―a German sculptor and performance artist--became one of the most influential figures in modern and contemporary art. His charismatic presence, extraordinary life, and unconventional artistic style (incorporating ritualized movement and sound, and materials such as fat, felt, earth, honey, blood, and even dead animals) gained him international notoriety during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. Beuys’s innovative influence is particularly felt in the field of sculpture, whose definition he expanded to encompass performance art, vitrine cases, and site-specific environments.This beautifully illustrated book investigates Beuys’s sculpture, arguably the most fundamental portion of his artistic work, as well as his extraordinary influence. Featured objects include a stunning selection of Beuys’s remarkable vitrines―sly cousins of standard museum presentations, featuring both hand-made and found objects serving as “exhibitions” on Beuys’s own topics; blackboards on which he recorded his lectures and performances; room-sized environments; and many other sculptural projects that frequently served as physical documentation for Beuys’s performances.With a comprehensive chronology of Beuys’s activities as an artist and activist, this book is essential fo...
