Published to accompany the exhibition Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe opening at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 2014, this catalogue considerably advances the scholarship and understanding of an influential yet little-known twentieth- century artistic movement. As part of the first comprehensive overview of Italian Futurism to be presented in the United States, this publication examines the historical sweep of Futurism from its inception with F.T. Marinetti’s manifesto in 1909 through the movement’s demise at the end of World War II. Presenting over 300 works created between 1909 and 1944, by artists, writers, designers and composers such as Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni, Anton Giulio Bragaglia, Fortunato Depero, Gerardo Dottori, Marinetti, Ivo Pannaggi, Rosa Rosà, Luigi Russolo, Tato and many others, this publication encompasses not only painting and sculpture, but also architecture, design, ceramics, fashion, film, photography, advertising, free-form poetry, publications, music, theater and performance. A wealth of scholarly essays discuss Italian Futurism’s diverse themes and incarnations.

The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860-1989 illuminates the dynamic and complex impact of Asian art, literary texts and philosophical concepts on American artistic practices from the late nineteenth century through the present. Released to accompany a major survey at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The Third Mind traces how the classical arts of India, China and Japan and the systems of Hindu, Taoist, Tantric Buddhist and Zen Buddhist thought that were collectively admired as the "East" were known, reconstructed and transformed by American cultural, intellectual and political forces. Featuring 270 objects in an array of media including painting, works on paper, books and ephemera, sculptures, video art and installations, this richly illustrated catalogue also includes scholarly essays by museum curators and academics specializing in art history, intellectual history, Asian studies and Postcolonial religious and cultural studies and representing a range of interdisciplinary perspectives.

This beautifully designed exhibition catalogue explores the optically vibrant paintings of the late nineteenth-century Italian Divisionists, examining, for the first time, their relationship to Neo-Impressionism. Artists from both movements subscribed to a painting technique rooted in color theory; held left-wing political views; and pursued similar subject matter--from idyllic landscapes to timely social problems. Arcadia and Anarchy underscores the Italian artists' autonomy from their European counterparts and highlights their importance in pioneering Modernism. Published to accompany the premiere of the exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin, which was curated by Vivien Greene and will travel to the Guggenheim Museum, New York in the summer of 2007, this focused study of 40 key Divisionist works is the first of its kind to appear in the United States. Featuring work by Giovanni Segantini, Théo Van Rysselberghe, Albert Dubois-Pillet, Georges Seurat, Vittore Grubicy de Dragon, Maximilien Luce, Paul Signac, Emilio Longoni, Camille Pissarro, Angelo Morbelli, Henri-Edmond Cross, Plino Nomellini, Charles Angrand, Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo, Giovanni Sottocornola, Jan Toorop and Gaetano Previati, it includes essays by Greene, as well as by noted scholars Giovanna Ginex, Dominique Lobstein and Aurora Scotti Tosini.
