It should be first pointed out that French artists who taught "L'Ecole Superieux des Beaux Arts de L'Indochine" (The College of Fine Arts of Indochina) opened in Hanoi in 1925 were blazetrailers of contemporary arts of Vietnam. European arts have had much imprint on Vietnam's. Whatever "ism" have existed in Europe whether Classical Naturalism, Medieval Religionism, Post Impressionism, Cubism, Expressionism, Surrealism, Abstractionism... and even present-day Installation and Land Art..., all turn up in Vietnam.
has argued that classical drapery is so prevalent in European art that “classicists tend to
think of it not as clothing but as an example of Greek and Roman art” (105). Drapery
has long been an ‘artistic conceit’, a device showing artistic flair and rendering. This is
brought to an apogee in the large paintings by the contemporary artist Alison Watt. The
contours of flesh hidden by the folds of cloth are searched for in vain as there is no
body hidden. Alison Watt’s work is a study of cloth, of folds, of voids, of form for...
A series of fifteen conversations in which contemporary artists who create activist, participatory work discuss the cooperative process. Colleagues from fields including architecture, art history, urban planning, and new media join the conversations.
Practice has a logic which is not that of the logician. This has to be
acknowledged in order to avoid asking of it more logic than it can give,
thereby condemning oneself either to wring incoherence out of it or to
thrust a forced coherence upon it. (Bourdieu 1990:80)
The impetus for this book emerged in the heat of practice. It was in the
experience of painting two worksReading Fiction (1995) (Illus. 1) and
Reading Theory (1995) (Illus. 2)that I came to question the
representationalist logic that underpins contemporary understandings of the
work of art.
Chapter 14 - Contemporary trends: A Maturing art form. This chapter presents the following content: The neoclassicists, the trumpet legacy, the saxophone legacy, the piano legacy, the vocal legacy, jazz/pop distinctions, vocal jazz groups.
Throughout all the editions of How to Cheat in Photoshop – a book which
will, incidentally, teach you how to use Photoshop – I’ve maintained a website
and reader forum to help readers with their photomontage-related problems.
This has included a regular weekly contest, the Friday Challenge. And I’ve
noticed that one of the major issues facing Photoshop artists is not how to
use the Curves dialog, or the Pen tool, or how to save work for the web. One
of the major stumbling blocks, it turns out, is the design process....
variety of comprehension strategies as needed (e.g., generating and responding to
essential questions, making predictions, comparing information from several sources).
The selections in Recommended Literature, Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve illustrate the
quality and complexity of the materials to be read by students.

In effective English language arts classrooms at all grade levels, students are actively engaged in reading a variety
of literary and non-literary texts. By reading imaginative, expository, and informational texts of increasing
complexity, students gain an understanding of the elements and structure of different genres. The standards of
this strand outline the reading skills and strategies as well as the literary concepts and vocabulary that enable
students to comprehend and appreciate high quality reading materials. General Standards 7 and 8 outline basic
Taxation in Comparative and Historical Perspective
The New Fiscal Sociology: Taxation in Comparative and Historical Perspective demon-
strates that the study of taxation can illuminate fundamental dynamics of modern
societies. The fourteen chapters in this collection offer a state-of-the-art survey of the
new ﬁscal sociology that is emerging at the intersection of sociology, history, political
science, and law.
The contributors include some of the foremost comparative historical scholars in
these disciplines and others.

The practice of drawing…distilled to its essential elements.In this elegant and inspiring primer, master contemporary artist and author Juliette Aristides breaks down the drawing process into small, manageable lessons; introduces time-tested principles and techniques that
From 2004 to 2006 I taught an introductory
ﬁlm history course in the School for the Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser
University covering cinema’s ﬁrst ﬁve decades. While approximately twenty-ﬁve
percent of the students taking this course were enrolled in the department’s ﬁlm
production major and were actively creating their own 16mm ﬁlms, the remain-
ing students were largely taking the course out of personal interest or to fulﬁll
requirements for other degrees.
I'd known about the No Hope/Equus/Bikini Trouble/Summer Heat situation for, like, a year,
and had always thought it'd be fun to edit together a little creative virginity-losing scene
between Scot and Monalisa, since they were both clearly yearning for it back then (and
who knows, maybe they slipped away from their chaperones for a little hide-the-chipolata
in an empty trailer!).
It has been a pleasure to be involved in the ‘Contemporary
Thinkers Reframed’ series produced by I.B.Tauris. I would like to
pay tribute to Susan Lawson’s initiative and courage in proposing
a series of books on contemporary thinkers aimed specifically at
the visual artist and visual-arts students. I would also like to
acknowledge Philippa Brewster, Liza Thompson and Gretchen
Ladish’s patience and commitment to the project. Estelle Barrett
has, as always, enriched this book through our ongoing dialogues
and her generosity in reading the manuscript.
The influence of Greek sculptural ideals and Greek clothing are relatively well
known, as is the connection between the aesthetic and Pre-Raphaelite artists and dress
reform (Newton; Cunningham). The exhibition The Cult of Beauty. The Aesthetic
Movement 1869–1900 at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 2011 made these
connections through a display of clothing, dress manuals and other items.
I also feel strongly that art making is a research driven activity. The infor-
mation contained in this book is written by some of the more innovative and
interesting minds working in ceramics today. While not all of the ideas are
necessarily groundbreaking, they are unique in their individual approach to
the use of the material. How these artists researched and successfully used the
processes they set out to is inspirational, informative and important. I hope
you find the research contained in these pages as exciting as I do....
McCauley shapes these varied life
experiences into clay forms that are
assembled as wholly personal and re-
vealing sculpture. Prior to studying
art, his vocational positions included
carpenter, concrete inspector, waiter
and chef, mechanic, horse trainer
and aluminum-siding salesman.
Like many of his contemporaries,
McCauley was drawn to clay after
his initial introduction, a classic case
of the “love at first touch” syndrome.
Ron Meyers at the University of
Georgia, was a significant role model.
If the conservator is inexperienced, uses inappropriate materials, or cuts corners to reduce
costs or save time, the damage can be devastating and often irreparable. When the conserva-
tor is highly qualified, sensitive to aesthetic and art historical concerns, and knowledgeable
about materials and methods, the results can bring new life to the sculpture.
To the novice project manager, the highly specialized field of conservation can be confus-
