            Art and Build is committed to turning thoughts into reality, leading to the built form in a time window where contextual parameters of matter, form and light crystallise. The dialogue between art and construction is fundamental in its philosophy, and implies a synthesis of invent...ion and thoroughness, liberty, efficiency and forward thinking.

            The Peace of Wall: Street Art from East Timor

            The Peace of Wall: Street Art from East Timor (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Parkinson, Chris; Foreword by Ramos-Horta, Jose

            The images and words adorning the walls of East Timor reflect the country's tumultuous history, precarious present and hopeful future. They endow the social landscape with a rawness and honesty not found in other media there, and echo the struggle towards new nationhood. Peace of... Wall is widely contradictory, emotionally charged, instantly engaging and consistently dramatic. It's life in East Timor. Chris Parkinson spent four years in East Timor working for the United Nations after the social and political upheaval of 2006. Throughout this time, he documented the changing political and social climate in East Timor through its street art. He amassed over 3000 photographs and hundreds of hours of interviews. Peace of Wall showcases a selection of these inspirational stories and artwork.

            A Communion of Stranger Gestures

            A Communion of Stranger Gestures (Hardback)

            By Mesiti, Angelica

            Angelica Mesiti- A Communion of Stranger Gestures is the first significant publication dedicated to chronicling the practice of one of Australia's leading contemporary artists. The 224-page, full colour book has been designed by Formist to reflect the elegance and beauty of Mesit...i's approach, with a subtle aesthetic nod to the ideas around communication and transmission that she often explores. Two major new texts have been commissioned to expand the field of writing around Mesiti's body of work, from leading Australian academic and writer Justin Clemens, and Director of Lafayette Anticipations, Paris, Franpois Quintin. A Communion of Stranger Gestures also includes an in-depth artist interview with Artspace Executive Director Alexie Glass-Kantor and Curator Talia Linz, along with nine original short texts on new and existing works over the last ten years. The publication ties in with Mesiti's first solo institutional presentation, Relay League, which was commissioned by Artspace earlier this year, curated by Glass-Kantor and Deputy Director Michelle Newton. The work takes as its departure point a Morse code message transmitted by the French Navy on 31 January 1997 to signal the imminent demise of this communication method. Mesiti interprets the dots and dashes of this final poetic phrase through music, choreography, non-verbal communication and sculpture. A Communion of Stranger Gestures features extensive imagery from the development and presentation of this exciting new work, which is touring to Art Sonje Center, Seoul, in addition to nine venues across Australia including Griffith University Art Gallery, Brisbane, and Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne. Recently shortlisted for the 9th edition of the prestigious Prix Meurice for contemporary art and with a residency at the Centre National de la Danse in Paris, Mesiti is increasingly establishing her reputation as one of Australia's most outstanding artists.

            We Can Make Another Future:Japanese Art after 1989: Japanese Art after 1989 (Hardback)

            By Keehan, Reuben; Text by Shihoko, Iida

            'We Can Make Another Future' will be on display at the Queensland Art Gallery Gallery of Modern Art from 6 September 2014 until 20 September 2015, and will profile QAGOMA's holdings of contemporary art from Japan. The exhibition chronicles the art of the Heisei era, which commenc...ed in 1989 with the ascension of Emperor Akihito, through major works by artists including Yayoi Kusama, Lee Ufan, Takashi Murakami, Yasumasa Morimura, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Tomoko Yoneda. The era coincides with the peak of the Japanese economic boom and its later contraction, which led to the 'lost decades' of the 1990s and 2000s, but also the rise of Japan as a cultural superpower. QAGOMA's collection of contemporary Japanese art is the most extensive in Australia and is uniquely positioned to shed light on this fascinating period, exploring various aspects of culture and society in Japan through the work of its leading artists. This richly illustrated publication accompanying this exhibition will include essays on the major exhibition themes by Reuben Keehan and Shihoko Iida and a detailed chronology spanning 25 years of Japanese art in the context of wider culture and society.

            Foreword by Stringer, John

            A new book revealing an artistic treasury that is new even to most Western Australians, for the Horn's support of artists has been a journey of personal fulfilment rather than a military-style campaign. They collect art for exactly the right reasons: they seek stimulation and enj...oyment.

            Hyper Real charts the evolution of hyperreal art into the twenty-first century through the work of key figures in its early development in the 1960s and 1970s to today's artists who are exploring new mediums and technologies that progress the genre's compelling narratives and tro...pes. From eerily lifelike figures to out-of-this-world virtual reality, these works provokes reflection, fascination, fear and joy and chronicle the cycles of life and our constant need for connection, posing the fundamental age-old question of figurative sculpture: `what makes us human?' A question that takes on even greater impetus in our radically changing world.
