The Spaces Between  Contemporary Art from Havana, Eligio Fernández (Tonel),  Antonio &  Keith Wallace &  Cecilia Andersson
25 Eligio Fernández (Tonel), Antonio & Keith Wallace & Cecilia Andersson The Spaces Between Contemporary Art from Havana
London Black Dog Publishing 2014 1908966548 / 9781908966544 First Edition Softcover Near Fine 
Only slight wear to card covers; A bright, solid book.; B&W and Colour Illustrations; 9.76 X 7.80 X 0.63 inches; 143 pages; "As opined by the book’s title, this is a publication focused toward the shared spaces and communal sensibilities of a city, rather than an attempt to survey the entire contemporary output of this anomalous nation. In essence, the study is a concentrated one of modern Havana, taking note of those artistic, cultural, socioeconomic and anthropological influences on its art scene without intent to become pedagogic in the process.Including major contemporary figures such as Juan Carlos Alom, Celia y Junior and Eduardo Ponjuan, The Spaces Between discusses the modern current of unfocused politicisation within the work, where issues of money, identity and bureaucracy are garnered from each viewers reading and imagination of suggestion, a reflection of the current emphasis on the spectator as contributor to making meaning.Published in collaboration with the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Vancouver, the book maintains the ambient approach of the partnering exhibition in an attempt to depict the context of Havana artists in the modern era. In part it discusses the lo-tech necessities of modern artists working in the city today, which has formed if not a coherent style, then a municipal approach to the process. As such, much of the work uses recycled materials or simple video and text-based elements to convey its meaning in a manner more diverse and ambiguous than prior generations of Cuban artists."

The Lost Museum tells the story of the Jewish art collectors and gallery owners in France who were stripped of rare works by artists such as Vermeer, Rembrandt, Degas, Cézanne, and Picasso. Before they were through, the Nazis had taken more than 20,000 paintings, sculptures, and drawings from France.The Lost Museum explores the Nazis’ systematic confiscation of these artworks, focusing on the private collections of five families: Rothschild, Rosenberg, Bernheim-Jeune, David-Weill, and Schloss. The book is filled with private family photos of this art, some of which has never before been seen by the public, and it traces the fate of these works as they passed through the hands of top German officials, unscrupulous art dealers, and unwitting auction houses such as Christie’s and Sotheby’s."

(the title is taken from the signature Emily Carr frequently used) is a moving study of an artist's struggle against despair and loneliness. It is also an intimate portrayal of a close friendship. To her fellow Victorians, Emily Carr was an eccentric character who kept outlandish pets, wore outlandish clothes, painted outlandish pictures, and had a very sharp tongue. Recognition of her artistic depth and vitality came slowly. But to Edythe Schleicher it was self-evident from the very beginning of their relationship."
