Design Dispersed pursues the complex and heterogeneous connections between migration and design in the 20th and 21st centuries. The edited volume gathers contributions by international researchers and curators on the question of how design practices and (historical) objects articulate, respond to and critically reflect on migration, flight and displacement: Besides a collage which highlights the aesthetic effects resulting from the networking, overlapping and mixing of forms, another strand of the book looks at the political and social dimensions of design. How are design objects material modes of a critical inquiry on movements of people and things? What role do object trajectories play in the émigré movements of the 1930s and 1940s? Other texts follow the question of how migrants and refugees form their experience and political fight for acceptance into design and architectural productions. A final essay contributes to wordings and projections - what vocabulary do we need in order to adequately think and write about a design dispersed?

With the most vibrant and original curation of images ever to be assembled and clever descriptions of the concepts that define its soul, Mexican Style is a 360-degree exploration of this mythical and colorful country. A breath of air clears away the clouds that at times obscure the country's unique identity to outsiders, and each page in this exceptional addition to Assouline's Style series reveals the color and brilliance of a nation that fascinates the world. Mexican Style is an aesthetic, chaotic, surprising and delightful journey that helps us to understand the memory, collective history and heart of this land. Author Susana M. Vidal showcases all of Mexico's facets, doing a deep-dive into different cultural categories, from gastronomy to cinema and natural wonders, and showcases the most iconic features for each one. With the flair of a true aficionado, Vidal tells the tale of the Day of the Dead, presents the "Frida effect" in its various forms, and highlights the history of chocolate, mezcal, chili and the duality between yesterday and today, through the nation's deep communal sense--Mexico's greatest personality trait. Through its pages, Mexican Style reveals what truly enamors us to the country's intoxicating spirit.

The aim of this book is to engender Mexican folk art and locate women at its centre by studying the processes of creation, distribution, and consumption, as well as examining iconographic aspects, and elements of class and ethnicity, from the perspective of gender. The author will demonstrate that the topic provides unique insights into Mexican culture, and has enormous relevance within and without the country, given the fact that much folk art is made for the United States and Europe, either in terms of the tourists who buy it on coming to Mexico, or that which is exported.

The self-portraits of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo are renowned for their dream-like quality and emotional intensity. A passionate woman endowed with an indomitable spirit, Kahlo overcame injury and personal hardship to become one of the world's most important female artists. Celebrated by the surrealists in her own lifetime, she has attained cult-like status both for her extraordinary art and her tempestuous love-life with her husband, Diego Rivera, Mexico's most prominent modern painter. An outstanding selection of paintings by Kahlo and Rivera form the core of this catalogue, which accompanies the National Gallery of Australia's exhibition. Jacques Gelman, the Russian emigre film producer, and his wife, Natasha, built up their collection over many years of acquaintance and collaboration with Mexico's greatest creative artists. It is now widely regarded as the most significant private holding of twentieth century American art.
