Winifred Nicholson, Music of Colour

Winifred Nicholson, Music of Colour

£12.00

Description

Winifred Nicholson (1893-1981) is one of the most important and best loved artists in the Kettle’s Yard collection. Nicholson met Kettle’s Yard’s founder Jim Ede in 1924, and they kept in regular contact over the following decades. Ede credited Winifred Nicholson directly for “[teaching] me much about the fusing of art and daily living” and at Kettle’s Yard he built the largest public collection of her work.

This book published in 2012 brings together some of Nicholson’s most eloquent essays with extracts from previously unpublished letters between the artist and Ede, and the words of their mutual friends, the poet Kathleen Raine and collector Helen Sutherland. This book is richly illustrated and includes reproductions of all works in the collection, a biography and bibliography.

Bridget Riley

Bridget Riley: Colour, stripes, planes and curves

£14.95

Description

For fifty years Bridget Riley has been one of the world’s leading abstract painters. For most of that time colour and our perception of its fleeting nature have been at the heart of her work. The 2011 exhibition organised uniquely for Kettle’s Yard looked at paintings and studies from the last thirty years to trace her progress through the agency of stripes, planes, and curves and back to stripes.

The illustrated catalogue to accompany the exhibition in 2011 contains a conversation between Bridget Riley and Michael Harrison, published jointly with Ridinghouse.

Immaterial: Brancusi, Gabo, Moholy - Nagy

£6.50

Description

The dematerialisation of the solid world has been a pre-occupation of Western artists from Impressionism, through Cubism to the present day. This publication explores the aspiration of three modernists of Eastern European origins, Constantin Brancusi, Naum Gabo and László Moholy-Nagy to “dematerialise” the sculptural object.

The catalogue to accompany the 2004 exhibition contains essays from Sebastiano Barassi, Christina Lodder, Martin Hammer and Geraldine Johnson.

Beauty and Revolution. The Poetry and Art of Ian Hamilton Finlay

£10.00

Description

The Scottish poet and artist Ian Hamilton Finlay (1925-2006) first met and began to correspond with Jim Ede, the founder of Kettle’s Yard, in the autumn of 1964. In the same year, a group of Cambridge students began to exhibit, publish and write about his work. Among the students was Stephen Bann, who went on to become an expert on the artist and subsequently built up an extensive collection of Finlay’s works.

Published to accompany the exhibition at Kettle's Yard in December 2014- March 2015, the publication traces Ian Hamilton Finlay’s artistic development from the poems that made him Britain’s most internationally acclaimed concrete poet, to the images and texts that marked his engagement with the French Revolution.

It's title, Beauty and Revolution, exposes one of the many dualisms within Finlay's practice and includes a new essay for this publication from Professor Stephen Bann, which draws upon the Kettle's Yard archives to explore the dialogues between Finlay and Ede in the 1960s, and sheds new light upon the complex relationship that existed between their aesthetic tastes.

New Rhythms

NEW RHYTHMS - Henri Gaudier-Brzeska

£14.00

Description

Henri Gaudier-Brzeska (1891-1915) was a pioneer of modern sculpture. Born in France, but working in London from 1911 to 1914, Gaudier’s precocious talent was cut short by his death at the age of twenty-three in the First World War. Published to accompany the New Rhythms exhibition in March- June 2015 and to mark 100 years since Gaudier’s death, NEW RHYTHMS explores how his interests in dance, rhythm and movement (including wrestling) decisively influenced his sculpture. Alongside his contemporaries, Gaudier’s ambition was to make art for a new age.

With over 80 illustrations and an introduction from Dr Jennifer Powell (Kettle’s Yard) and essays by Dr Doïna Lemny (Pompidou Centre, Paris), Dr Sarah Victoria Turner (Paul Mellon Centre) and Dr Evelyn Silber, this publication showcases how Gaudier’s works can inspire NEW RHYTHMS today.

Published in 2015. Paperback, Pages 126, Illustrations: 81 colour, 8 b&w
Dimensions 240x190mm Weight: 445g
