Artrepreneur - A Field Guide For Creative Professionals (Paperback): Lukas De Beer Artrepreneur - A Field Guide For Creative Professionals (Paperback)
Lukas De Beer
R356 Discovery Miles 3 560 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Artist + Entrepreneur = Artrepreneur.

Today, more than ever before, creative professionals from all creative domains are beginning to realize that in order to pursue a creative career you need to think like an entrepreneur. Yet as we discover in this book, the motivating factors between what drives an entrepreneur and an Artrepreneur differ greatly.

For one, Artrepreneurs are not always in it for the money. On the contrary, they are often driven by raw passion and the desire to create. This drive usually creates tension between maintaining authenticity and creativity as an artist, and administrating a business, which is you. In essence, this book is about assisting creative professionals to understand that they are the business and not only the artist. It is about the intersection between being an artist and being an entrepreneur, hence the title of the book.

Part self-help, part coaching, part delve-into-your-soul-to-find-the-real-you. Why? Because without the real you, art will always be a copy and never a creation.

As the struggle against apartheid gained momentum in the seventies and eighties, women photographers recorded the drama unfolding across the land. More recently, women have begun exploring a different aesthetic and developing a wide range of photographic practices in the worlds of fashion, journalism, documentary, and advertising. Seventy-five photographers and almost 400 images are included.

"Robin Comley" has worked as a journalist and editor and is photographic editor of "A Century of Sundays," a retrospective on 100 years of the "Sunday Times" newspaper. "George Hallett" is a Cape Town-based photographer who has exhibited internationally. In 1995, he won a Golden Eye in the World Press Photo Award for his essay on President Mandela during the 1994 election campaign. "Neo Ntsoma" has won many prestigious awards including the CNN African Journalist Award (Photography), of which she was the first woman recipient. Her work has been published in international publications and her photo-project, South African Youth ID--Kwaito Culture' appeared in "Moving in Time," an anthology of work from fifty South African photographers in celebration of ten years of democracy.

Far more than being about a single artwork, this book participates in the myriad conversations and debates on the meaning of public art. Essays by Mark Gevisser, Mpho Matsipa, Alexandra Dodd, and Jonathan Cane and Zen Marie prise open critical questions about public space in Johannesburg; Oliver Barstowís interviews with the various collaborators on the sculpture?from the commissioning agent to the steelworker?reveal the complexities and challenges of creating such a massive work in so short a time (construction and installation took a mere six weeks); and the extraordinary images by John Hodgkiss of the making of the sculpture, alongside two evocative photo essays on fire walker vendors (by Ben Law-Viljoen) and old city monuments (by Alastair McLachlan), suggest the metaphorical power of Fire Walker as well as the fragile hold of street vendors over their small share of city space.

CSI meets Who Do You Think You Are? meets Time Team meets The Antiques Roadshow. Two-dimensional works of art become three-dimensional thrillers. Philip Mould is an international art dealer who has lived the high stakes game of art sleuthing for twenty years. In Sleuth, we encounter the fascinating dealers, experts, auctioneers and restorers who risk fortunes and reputations to turn overlooked artworks into coveted treasures. Sleuth is laced with dramas: * Gainsborough's earliest picture emerges in a Los Angeles saleroom - the author has three days to find the missing facts and decide what to pay. * The most powerful man in the art establishment, with the influence to elevate a copy into a priceless original, is asked to look at a 'fake' Rembrandt self portrait: if he says yes a GBP5,000 picture turns into GBP5 million masterpiece. * A Vermont professor unlocks the door of a defunct Catholic church to reveal a hidden cache of 300 portraits. * An auctioneer notices from the upper story of a bus that Damien Hirst's restaurant is being dismantled. He swoops in and sells the fixtures and fittings for GBP13 million. Sleuth is a series of stories which not only reveals the extraordinary culture of detection but the people behind it. Paintings and their discovery become a way into the minds, preoccupations and professions of a raft of influential figures beyond the commercial and museum facade - men and women who have shaped their lives in pursuit of truth and profit through art.

Known as "the mistress of modern art", Peggy Guggenheim was a passionate collector and major patron.

A must read for anyone with an interest in these major-league artists, this seminal period of art history, and the ultimate self-invented woman.

History after apartheid - Visual culture and public memory in a democratic South Africa (Paperback): Annie E. Coombes History after apartheid - Visual culture and public memory in a democratic South Africa (Paperback)

The democratic election of Nelson Mandela as president of South Africa in 1994 marked the demise of apartheid and the beginning of a new struggle to define the nation's past. History after apartheid analyzes how, in the midst of the momentous shift to an inclusive democracy, South Africa's visual and material culture represented the past while at the same time contributing to the process of social transformation. Considering the attempts to invent and recover historical icons and narratives, art historian Annie E. Coombes examines how strategies for embodying different models of historical knowledge and experience are negotiated in public culture - in monuments, museums, and contemporary fine art. History after apartheid explores the dilemmas posed by a wide range of visual and material culture including key South African heritage sites. How prominent should Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress be in the museum at the infamous political prison on Robben Island? How should the postapartheid government deal with the Voortrekker Monument mythologizing the Boer Trek of 1838? Coombes highlights the contradictory investment in these sites among competing constituencies and the tensions involved in the rush to produce new histories for the 'new' South Africa.

Contemporary Indonesian Art 2017 (Hardcover): Yvonne Spielmann Contemporary Indonesian Art 2017 (Hardcover)
Yvonne Spielmann
R942 Discovery Miles 9 420 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Indonesian art entered the global contemporary art world of independent curators, art fairs and biennales in the 1990s. By the mid-2000s, Indonesian works were well-established on the Asian secondary art market, achieving record-breaking prices at auction houses in Singapore and Hong Kong. This comprehensive overview introduces Indonesian contemporary art in a fresh and stimulating manner, demonstrating how contemporary art breaks from colonial and post-colonial power structures, and grapples with issues of identity and nation-building in Indonesia. Across different media, in performance and installation, it amalgamates ethnic, cultural and religious references in its visuals, and confidently brings together the traditional (batik, woodcut, dance, Javanese shadow puppet theatre) with the contemporary (comics and manga, graffiti, advertising, pop culture). Spielmann's Contemporary Indonesian Art surveys the key artists, curators, institutions and collectors in the local art scene, and looks at the significance of Indonesian art in the Asian context. Through this book, originally published in German, Spielmann stakes a claim for global relevance of Indonesian art.
