Revisiting the Glass House: Contemporary Art and Modern Architecture

Be the first to review this product

In recent years, there has been an enormous interest among emerging and established artists in architecture of the modern period. "Revisiting the Glass House" explores the ways in which contemporary artists incorporate images of modern buildings in their work as a means to explore the Utopian potential of architecture and to provide an antidote to the cynicism of our time.The book features painting, photography, video art, and other two-dimensional work by twenty-two artists from around the world whose engagement with architecture has more to do with ideas and ideals than with structure. The artists reimagine the iconic designs of architects such as Walter Gropius, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Le Corbusier, placing their buildings in unlikely locations and repurposing them for a new generation. Through the works of these artists, contributing essayists examine the recent nostalgia for modern architecture and its potential for instigating social change.
