Zakaras, Laura and Julia F. Lowell

Cultivating Demand for the Arts: Arts Learning, Arts Engagement, and State Arts Policy

160 pp., 6” x 9”, bibliog., $30.50 paper, CIP included

October 2008

RAND Corporation

To shed light on the decline in demand for the nonprofit arts, the authors describe what it means to cultivate demand for the arts, examine how well U.S. institutions are serving this function, and discuss whether it is in the public interest to make such cultivation a higher priority than it has been in the past. This volume offers a new framework for thinking about supply and demand in the arts, suggesting that too little attention has been paid to cultivating demand relative to expanding supply.

Precarious Visualities: New Perspectives on Identification in Contemporary Art and Visual Culture

448 pp., 6” x 9”, 51 b&w photos, bibliog., index, $85.00 cloth, $34.95 paper, CIP included

July 2008

McGill-Queen’s University Press

Through the study of exemplary media works and practices—photography, film, video, performance, installations, web cams—scholars from various disciplines call attention to the unsettling of identification and the disablement of vision in contemporary aesthetics. Precarious Visualities provides a new understanding of spectatorship as a relation that is at once corporeal and imaginary, and persistently prolific in its cultural, social, and political effects.

The Museum of Modern Art

This publication, the first devoted exclusively to The Museum of Modern Art’s unrivaled Dada collection, features some seventy works-books, collages, drawings, films, paintings, photographs, photomontages, prints, readymades, and reliefs-in large reproductions accompanied by in-depth, object-focused essays by an interdepartmental group of the Museum’s curators. Catalyzed by the major Dada exhibition that appeared in 2005 and 2006 in Paris, Washington, D.C., and at MoMA, the book benefits from new scholarship generated by that show. An illustrated essay by Anne Umland, curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture, traces MoMA’s history of collecting, exhibiting, and publishing Dada work; it is complemented by a detailed chronology.

The fifth volume in the Art Through the Centuries series, this guide presents the most important artists and artistic concepts of the eighteenth century. While the Baroque style, with its emphasis on emotionalism and naturalistic forms, had dominated the seventeenth century, a new sensibility, the Rococo, emerged in the early years of the next century. The Rococo style, characterized by delicately curving forms, pastel colors, and a lighthearted mood, began in French architectural and interior design and became popularized in the paintings of Jean-Antoine Watteau and Francois Boucher. Includes over 300 color illustrations.

Western admirers have long seen the Islamic garden as an earthly reflection of the paradise said to await the faithful. However, such simplification, Ruggles contends, denies the sophistication and diversity of the art form. Islamic Gardens and Landscapes immerses the reader in the world of the architects of the great gardens of the Islamic world, from medieval Morocco to contemporary India. This is a comprehensive survey of Islamic gardens, from antiquity through to the present.

September 2008

Wayne State University Press

The years between World War I and the economic collapse of 1929 witnessed Detroit’s greatest building boom. Perhaps the most recognizable and innovative structure erected during that era was the Union Trust Building, now known as the Guardian Building. In The Guardian Building: Cathedral of Finance James W. Tottis tells the story of the opulent block-long tower, the influential company that commissioned it, and the under-appreciated architect responsible for its design. In full-color historic and contemporary photos, Tottis details everything from the china designed by the architect for use in the Guardian dining room to the building’s rarely seen upper banking room.

248 pp., 9 1/2” x 11”, 212 b&w and 211 color illus., bibliog., index, $45.00 cloth

July 2008

The Museum of Modern Art

As the world’s population swells and the development of sustainable ways of living grows ever more urgent, prefabricated architecture has taken center stage. Today, with the digital revolution reorganizing the relationship between the drafting board and the factory, prefabrication continues to spur innovative manufacturing and imaginative design, and its potential has not yet been completely fulfilled. Home Delivery traces the history of prefabrication in architecture, from its early roots in colonial cottages through the work of such figures as Jean Prouve and Buckminster Fuller. It concludes with a group of full-scale contemporary houses commissioned specifically for the MoMA exhibition that the book accompanies.

November 2008

University of Nebraska Press

A study of the development of cemeteries as art and community centers in the Rocky Mountain west. As pioneers moved westward, cemeteries became important cultural centers filled with carved wooden headboards, inscribed local stones, and Italian marble statues. As repositories of art and history, Pioneer Cemeteries tells the story of communities and visual culture emerging together within the developing landscape of the Old West. Annette Stott shows how people from Asia, Europe, and the Americas contributed to the visual character of the mountain cemeteries, and how the sepulchral garden functioned as an open-air gallery of public sculpture, at once a site for relaxation, learning, and community ceremonies.

Smoke Firing: Contemporary Artists and Approaches

176 pp., 8 1/2” x 11”, 190 color photos, index, $49.95 cloth, CIP included

January 2008

University of Pennsylvania Press

The ancient technique of smoke firing transforms raw clay into durable ceramics while carbon from burning leaves, sawdust, or paper embeds itself in the clay, mottling it with blues and grays, leaving cloudy forms around resist materials, or blackening the surface completely. Each piece is a unique record of collaboration between heat, chemistry, and creativity. The method has its roots in traditional pottery, but its technological simplicity lends itself to today’s artistic improvization and experimentation. This handsomely illustrated survey of contemporary international artists and their approaches to smoke-fired pottery is an inspirational resource for ceramics devotees, from seasoned practitioners to curious collectors.

Successful practitioners learn to combine technical knowledge and physical skill with emotional control and a highly developed aesthetic sense. In this detailed and richly illustrated book, veteran potter David Cohen delves into the fundamentals of throwing ceramics—from the mechanics of the wheel to aesthetics to the importance of breath and posture.

In 1939 the painter Iwamatsu Jun (1908-1994) and his artist wife, Tomoe, arrived in the U.S. as political refugees. During World War II, Iwamatsu used his artistic talents for the U.S. war effort, and he adopted a pseudonym, Taro Yashima, to protect his young son, whom he left behind in Japan. The New Sun, which was published in the U.S. in 1943, is an account of his life in prewar Japan. In its depiction of ordinary Japanese, The New Sun is both an indictment of Japanese militarism and a plea for American understanding of “the enemy.”

Although modern Swedish design has exercised an extraordinary influence on international architecture and interior furnishings since the early twentieth century, some of the crucial generative writings on the subject have never been widely translated, and the movement’s intellectual background is not well known. Modern Swedish Design collects three of Swedish design’s founding texts for the first time in English. Lively illustrations and near-facsimiles of the texts’ original publications, scholarly introductions by the editors, and an essay by architectural historian Kenneth Frampton accompany the translations.

Taking Joan Miro’s notorious declaration of 1927—”I want to assassinate painting”—as its point of departure, this richly illuminated volume is the first to focus on Miro the “anti-painter.” Joan Miro: Painting and Anti-Painting 1927-1937 surveys the various material, iconographical, and rhetorical forms of Miro’s attack on painting by presenting, in chronological sequence, twelve distinct series of works, beginning with a remarkable group of paintings on unprimed canvas and concluding with Miro’s return to realism in 1937 with Still Life with Old Shoe. Published to accompany a 2008-09 exhibition at The MoMA, this volume integrates close scrutiny of Miro’s materials and processes with historical and iconographic analysis.

Today a tourist mecca, the area now known as the Wisconsin Dells was once wilderness—and a gathering place for the region’s Native peoples, the Ho-Chunk. By the late 1800s their numbers had dwindled through displacement or forcible removal, and it was this smaller band that caught the attention of photographer Henry Hamilton Bennett. “This deft analysis of Bennett’s commercial pictures set within the context of tribal history as well as the nascent tourist industry of the Wisconsin Dells serves as a model for photographic research.”—Martha A.

The Printed Picture traces the changing technology of picturemaking from the Renaissance to the present, focusing on the vital role that images in multiple copies have played in our culture. This book surveys printing techniques before the invention of photography, the photographic processes that began to appear in the early nineteenth century, the marriage of printing and photography, and the rapidly evolving digital inventions of our time. Photographer Richard Benson succinctly examines the full range of pictorial processes-from woodblock to chromolithograph, engraving to bar code, daguerreotype to modern color photograph-and reaches fascinating and original conclusions about what pictures can mean.

In some countries, they call them the “abandonados,” the abandoned ones. They are the impoverished mentally ill and mentally disabled patients being warehoused in psychiatric asylums that are more run-down and uncaring than the most brutal American prisons. Confined in cage-like cells, tied to beds soiled with human waste, medicated to the point of senselessness, they live in what can only be called the shadows, their plight unseen and easily ignored by the rest of the human family. In Procession of Them, one of the world’s foremost documentary photographers offers an unflinching look at the inhuman conditions suffered by the mentally ill and disabled in many countries.

In one creative, fresh way or another, they also uncover the essence of music—and why music has such power over us. To celebrate ten years of the Southern Music Issue, the fifty-five essays collected in this anthology appeal to both music fans and fans of great writing.

In jazz circles, players and listeners with “big ears” hear and engage complexity in the moment, as it unfolds. Taking gender as part of the intricate, unpredictable action in jazz culture, this interdisciplinary collection explores the terrain opened up by listening, with big ears, for gender in jazz. Essays range from a reflection on the female boogie-woogie pianists who played at Café Society in New York during the 1930s and 1940s, to interpretations of how the jazzman is represented in Dorothy Baker’s 1938 novel Young Man with a Horn, to Michael Curtiz’s 1950 film adaptation.

Her career spanned her wildly successful and innovative productions of classical operas to projects like “Making Music Together,” which in 1988 brought together musicians and composers from the Soviet Union and the United States. Challenges is based on a series of interviews Rebecca Matlock conducted over a period of three years before Caldwell’s death in 2006. This intimate memoir gives us Caldwell’s perceptions in her own unique, indomitable voice.

Author Deborah Smith Pollard assesses contemporary gospel music as the genre enters the twenty-first century. She argues that although the flashy clothing, informal language, and elaborate stage presentation found in some of the newest gospel music might not be what some worshippers expect, this new aesthetic rests on the same Christian principles as more traditional forms and actually extends its message to a wider and younger audience. A 2009 Michigan Notable Book Award winner.

Like Jimmie Rodgers, Woody Guthrie, Robert Johnson, and Hank Williams, Townes Van Zandt was the embodiment of that mythic American figure, the troubled troubadour. A Deeper Blue traces Van Zandt’s background as the scion of a prominent Texas family; his troubled early years and his transformation from promising pre-law student to wandering folk singer; his life on the road and the demons that pursued and were pursued by him; the women who loved and inspired him; and the brilliance and enduring beauty of his songs.

Baylor University Press

Sacred Terror examines the religious elements lurking in horror films. It answers a simple but profound question: When there are so many other scary things around, why is religion so often used to tell a scary story? In this lucid, provocative book, Douglas Cowan argues that horror films are opportune vehicles for externalizing the fears that lie inside our religious selves: fear of evil; of the flesh; of sacred places; of change in the sacred order; of the supernatural gone out of control; of death, dying badly, or not remaining dead; of fanaticism; and of the power—and the powerlessness—of religion.

Joel Schechter has rediscovered the funny and often politically-charged plays of the American Yiddish theatre of the 1930s, celebrating their satire, radical imagination, and their commitment to social change. He introduces readers to the once-famous writers and actors—Moishe Nadir, David Pinski, Yosl Cutler, and others—who brought into artistic form their visions of peace, social justice, and satire for all. Messiahs of 1933 greatly enlarges our understanding of Yiddish theatre and culture in the United States. It examines the innovative stage performances created by the Artef collective, the Modicut puppeteers, and the Yiddish Unit of the Federal Theatre Project.

A well researched but informal retelling of the tragic story of the trip Will Rogers and Wiley Post made to Alaska in August 1935. The trip ended abruptly when the plane crashed in a lagoon just outside Barrow, killing both Post and Rogers, the world-famous entertainer and Post’s lone passenger. The book reads like a novel, approaching the story from several angles, alternating the story of Rogers and Post’s trip with the story of Rogers’ family, focusing in particular on Roger’s wife and daughter, who, ironically was on stage in a play about plane crashes the very day Rogers was killed.

It is a battle with high stakes for all concerned, not least the athletes whose exploitation by the system has been the motivating force for Sack’s own campaign, now stretching over several decades.

By joining the basketball program at Indiana University, he broke the gentleman’s agreement that had barred black players from the Big Ten, college basketball’s most important conference. While enduring taunts from opponents and pervasive segregation at home and on the road, Garrett became the best player Indiana had ever had, an all-American, and in 1951, the third African American drafted in the NBA. Within a year of his graduation from IU, there were six African American basketball players on Big Ten teams.

He attended college and made wheelchair basketball his passion—ultimately becoming a star athlete and playing on the U.S. National Wheelchair Basketball Team.
