Contemporary African art has grown out of the diverse histories and cultural heritage of the African continent and it's diaspora. It is not characterized by any particular style, technique or theme, but by a bricolage-like attitude towards art-making, incorporating and building upon the structures from which older, precolonial and colonial genres were made. In this revised and updated edition of Contemporary African Art, Sidney Littlefield Kasfir examines the major themes, developments and accomplishments in African art of the 20th and 21st centuries. Organized thematically, the book includes new chapters on the history of African photography and the growth of the global art market, alongside significant discussions of patronage and mediation, artistic training and national and diaspora identities.

"Simplicity and creativity. Modernity and tradition. Bringing aesthetics to technology, elegance to color, crafting harmony and rejecting discomfort. That is my ambition". Known the world over for her spectacular interiors for private residences and luxury hotels and restaurants, Sybille de Margerie has mastered the art of fine detail with elegance for over thirty years. Each project has its own identity, and her masterful designs generate emotions by creating spaces that are in harmony with their geographical locations and cultural origins. Inspired by history and great artists, de Margerie creates a language of textures that brings together the applied and decorative arts. Her interiors are refined yet distinctly livable, opulent and effortless, sophisticated and, at the same time, fluid and functional. In eight breathtaking chapters, this book celebrates a way of living that blends tradition and innovation with a distinctly French eye for luxury.

In this classic survey, now updated and with full-colour images throughout, Edward Lucie-Smith introduces the art of Latin America from 1900 to the present day. He discusses in detail major figures such as Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, as well as dozens of less well-known artists. Those who spent their lives in exile, and artists from Europe and the US who lived in South America, such as Leonora Carrington, are all included in this broad, comprehensive view. The artists featured here have sought for indigenous roots and a local tradition; explored abstraction, expressionism and new media (video, installation, performance); entered dialogue with European and North American movements, while insisting on reaching a wide popular audience for their work; and created an energetic, innovative and very varied art scene across the continent today. A new chapter extends the discussion into the twenty first century, summarizing key trends and most notable figures of the last two decades. A constant theme is the embrace of the experimental and the new by artists across Latin America.
