MAKING & UNMAKING: DURO OLOWU. Camden Arts Centre, London, 2016. Published in association with Ridinghouse, London. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 112 pp. 15 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781909932272 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: From Bauhaus jewelry and West African textiles to contemporary portraiture and sculpture, this unique exhibition and accompanying full color catalog curated by celebrated fashion designer/curator Duro Olowu (b. 1965) explores the rituals of making that underpin an artist's work. Olowu selected material by over 70 artists, including rarely seen works by Anni Albers, Alighiero Boetti, Wangechi Mutu, Alice Neel, Chris Ofili and Irving Penn as well as newer paintings by Lynette Yiadom-Boakye from the 1920s to the present. By setting up unexpected dialogues between historic and contemporary artists working in a myriad of media -- textile, painting, sculpture, photography and collage -- Olowu reveals a shared preoccupation with themes of gender, race, beauty, sexuality and the body. The volume includes an in-depth conversation between Olowu and Glenn Ligon, and texts by Jennifer Higgie and Shanay Jhaveri, which together highlight the intricate layers of history and place that influence the making of art.
