On Flower Power: the Role of the Vase in Arts, Crafts and Design
(1000 items available)
With the exhibition On Flower Power, curated by Martí Guixé, the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome radically and unconventionally explores the hybrid territory in which art, design and artisanship interact. This book of the same name accompanies the exhibition. This publication presents more than 80 works that reinterpret the tradition and iconography of the vase through design, photography, sculpture and painting are on display. Among them, some of the most important names in the international design scene, such as Enzo Mari (Cerano, 1932) and Gaetano Pesce (La Spezia, 1939), and the Mendini Vase Project, a work (produced for Alessi in 1992 by the Milanese architect Alessandro Mendini) that includes the works of 100 artists including Brian Eno, Robert Venturi, Milton Glaser and Ettore Sottsass.
