Out of stock
The boundary between arts and crafts appears to be blurring. Thread, weave, network, and pattern are simultaneously foundation, result, and inspiration and spill over into the areas painting, sculpture, installation, and media art. This opulently designed volume presents both an artistic and an intercultural dialogue, comparing works by Gustav Klimt, Edgar Degas, Jackson Pollock, Eva Hesse, Chiharu Shiota, and Sergei Jensen to historical textiles from centuries past. Selection of artists featured: Magdalena Abakanowicz, Anni Albers, Joseph Beuys, Louise Bourgeois, Edgar Degas, Sonia Delaunay, Lucio Fontana, Mona Hatoum, Eva Hesse, Josef Hoffmann, Sergei Jensen, Mike Kelley, Kimsooja, Paul Klee, Peter Kogler, Piero Manzoni, Agnes Martin, William Morris, Robert Morris, Blinky Palermo, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Chiharu Shiota, Yinka Shonibare, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Dorothea Tanning, Lenore Tawney, Rosemarie Trockel, edouard Vuillard, Pae White.
