              Miriam Cahn - I As Human

              Miriam Cahn - I As Human (Paperback)

              A rebel and feminist, the Switzerland-born Miriam Cahn is one of the major artists of her generation. Widely known for her drawings and paintings, she also experiments with photography, moving images, sculptures, and performance art. Cahn's diverse body of work is disturbing and ...dreamlike, filled with striking human figures pulsing with an energy both passionate and violent. These pieces, along with Cahn's reflections on artistic expression, have always responded to her contemporary moment. In the 1980s, her work addressed the feminist, peace, and environmental movements, while the work she produced in the 1990s and early 2000s contains allusions to the war in the former Yugoslavia, the conflict in the Middle East, and the September 11 terrorist attacks. Her recent production tackles ever-evolving political conflicts, engaging with the European refugee crisis and the "#metoo" movement. Miriam Cahn: I as Human examines different facets of the artist's prolific and troubling oeuvre, featuring contributions from art historians, critics, and philosophers including Kathleen Buhler, Paul B. Preciado, Elisabeth Lebovici, Adam Szymczyk,Natalia Sielewicz and .

              Djamel Tatah

              Djamel Tatah (Hardback)

              Text by Brugerolles, Emmanuelle; de Chassey, Eric; Cohn, Daniele; Mezil, Eric

              Djamel Tatah's refined paintings reveal the way in which humanity can assert itself as a presence in the world. From reality, ordinary life and world events, the artist paints life-size figures which seem to be suspended in time, set in unspecified places and caught up in a world... of silence. Reinterpreting solitude as virtue, Tatah intends to surpass reality, experimenting with colour, light and line to explore his feelings of being part of the world. This catalogue creates a dialogue between the collection's minimalist artists such as Robert Barry, Robert Ryman, Robert Mangold, Richard Serra, Sol LeWitt and Brice Marden, among others, and Tatah's sober refined life-size figures, which somehow seem suspended in time and detached from the world. The artist draws inspiration from everyday situations or major news events to create a metaphysical representation of contemporary man. While Djamel Tatah's work shows a clear relationship with modernist and contemporary monochrome painting, it is also part of a more classical tradition. Hence, the Paris School of Fine Art (ENSBA), where has taught since 2008, has loaned over fifty works from its own illustration collection, works by Delacroix, Matisse, Corneille de Lyon, Cimabue, Giotto, Piero della Francesca, and more, with a view to broadening the dialogue with Djamel Tatah's work over time.

              With the catalogue Poussin and Moses, from drawing to tapestry, DRAGO's partnership with The French Academy of Rome - Villa Medici continues. This collaboration, which covers an array of themes ranging from those that our publishing house are more traditionally associated with, s...uch as those of multiculturalism and multi-identity found in I Mutanti, or that of the underground that shores up in institutional complexes, as with Europunk, to the celebration of authors that are by now considered to be classics, and yet in their own age were prominent advocates and clear representatives of avant-garde subcultures. The Poussin and Moses, from drawing to tapestry exhibition, which was carried out in collaboration with the Mus e des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux, brings more than 40 masterpieces by the great French artist Nicolas Poussin together for the first time. Among these works, all of which are dedicated to the life of Moses, are tapestries, drawings, incisions, and paintings, all coming from the most prestigious British, Italian, and French museums, the catalogue sets itself apart by being composed of two volumes, the first of which includes iconografic materials, and the second of which includes critical texts by ric de Chassey, Guillaume Ambroise, Bernard Schotter, Marc Bayard, Pascal Bertrand, Olivier Bonfait, Arnauld Brejon de Lavergn e, Daniela Del Pesco, Marc Favreau, Marc Fumaroli, Henry Keazor e Jean Vittet.

              I Mutanti serves as the exhibition catalog to the French Academy in Rome - Villa Medici exhibition of the same title. The catalog is made up of five volumes that correspond to the five artists participating in the show. The work of Adel Abdessemed, Stephen Dean, Ellen Gallagher, ...Adrian Paci, Djamel Tatah makes it clear from the outset that they come from complex historical backgrounds. The unifying concept between these artists lies in their approach to expressing how individual cultural identities develop as a result of migration, colonization, and post-colonial sentiments in the Western world. The artists themselves are multinational, multi-ethnic, or multicultural, and at times all three; however with such infinite reference and concourse, they neither obliterate each other in the name of some idealized community nor efface distinct histories and pasts into the melting pot of the ever more globalized world. Above all, their creations are the concrete result of the process of hybridization. Their works are products of mixed media and various developments, which produce multi-faceted pieces upon which the concepts of identity and multiculturalism can be reflected and interpreted on an infinite number of levels. The Villa Medici offers I Mutanti a home that looks significantly toward the future while maintaining a close tie to the past in a city whose history has been built on influences of hybridization through continuous contact with different civilizations, Rome.

              Renowned British artist Bridget Riley's paintings have provoked powerful sensations through their formally taut, abstract compositions over the course of her more than six-decade career. In this new body of work, Riley returns to earlier ideas and takes them into further and surp...rising directions. I am sometimes asked 'What is your objective' and this I cannot truthfully answer. I work 'from' something rather than 'towards' something. It is a process of discovery. Since 1961, Riley has focused exclusively on seemingly simple geometric forms, such as lines, circles, curves, and squares, arrayed across a surface--whether a canvas, wall, or paper--according to an internal logic. The resulting compositions actively engage the viewer, at times triggering sensations of vibration and movement. This sense of dynamism was explored to great effect in the artist's earliest black-and-white paintings, which established the basis of her enduring formal vocabulary. In 1967, Riley introduced colour into her work, thus expanding the perceptual and optical possibilities of her compositions. Published on the occasion of the 2021 exhibition at David Zwirner, London, this monograph features new scholarship on the artist by art historian Eric de Chassey who looks at how Riley's past, as well as previous artists, has led to this body of work
