The Art of Transition addresses the problems defined by writers and artists during the postdictatorship years in Argentina and Chile, years in which both countries aggressively adopted neoliberal market-driven economies. Delving into the conflicting efforts of intellectuals to name and speak to what is real, Francine Masiello interprets the culture of this period as an art of transition, referring to both the political transition to democracy and the formal strategies of wrestling with this change that are found in the aesthetic realm. Masiello views representation as both a political and artistic device, concerned with the tensions between truth and lies, experience and language, and intellectuals and the marginal subjects they study and claim to defend. These often contentious negotiations, she argues, are most provocatively displayed through the spectacle of difference, which constantly crosses the literary stage, the market, and the North/South divide. While forcefully defending the ability of literature and art to advance ethical positions and to foster a critical view of neoliberalism, Masiello especially shows how issues of gender and sexuality function as integrating threads throughout this cultural project. Through discussions of visual art as well as literary work by prominent novelists and poets, Masiello sketches a broad landscape of vivid intellectual debate in the Southern Cone of Latin America. The Art of Transition will interest Latin Americanists,literary and political theorists, art critics and historians, and those involved with the study of postmodernism and globalization.

Artists especially from dance and performance art as well as opera are involved to an increasing degree in the transfer between different media, not only in their productions but also the events, materials, and documents that surround them. At the same time, the focus on that which remains has become central to any discussion of performance. Performing Arts in Transition explores what takes place in the moments of transition from one medium to another, and from the live performance to that which "survives" it. Case studies from a broad range of interdisciplinary scholars address phenomena such as: The dynamics of transfer between the performing and visual arts. The philosophy and terminologies of transitioning between media. Narratives and counternarratives in historical re-creations. The status of chronology and the document in art scholarship. This is an essential contribution to a vibrant, multidisciplinary and international field of research emerging at the intersections of performance, visual arts, and media studies.

London in the Fifties was a Mecca for artists: the painter Jack Smith, for instance, decreed that 'the wilderness starts ten miles from the centre of London in any direction'. The Bohemian underworlds of Fitzrovia and Soho attracted painters of the calibre of Francis Bacon, Frank Auerbach, Leon Kossoff, R. B. Kitaj and Lucian Freud. Kossoff was in no doubt as to what his subject should be: 'I hate leaving my studio', he said, 'I hate leaving London', and he painted the city from the age of twelve. Bacon became the most famous member of the circle centred on the legendary Colony Room in Soho, run by Muriel Belcher: a drinking den frequented by artists, critics and assorted hangers-on, eager to take advantage of the sexual freedom to be found in London, as nowhere else in the country, at a time when homosexuality was still against the law. The city was brimming over with ideas and movements: Neo-Romanticism, Social Realism, Pop Art, the Kitchen Sink School, Abstract Expressionism - all flourished in the Fifties and jostled for dominance. John Berger, then in his twenties and the enfant terrible of the art establishment, was one of the most influential critics of the time: passionately Marxist, his championing of Social Realism and the political responsibilities of art led him to clash with those painters he saw as failing in their duties to record 'the everyday and the ordinary'. The other great debate involved the relationship between high and low culture. To Lawrence Alloway, another important critic of the day, also in his twenties, popular culture had a vital role to play in 'high' art: he enthusiastically embraced American movies, music, magazines, all the paraphernalia of the newly invented 'teenager', and urged their incorporation into works of art. Bad press photographs, he held, were of more value to the artist than those striving self-consciously to be 'artistic'. The debates that raged around these issues made such institutions as the Royal College of Art, the Institute of Contemporary Arts and the Slade School of Fine Art power-houses of creativity and new ideas.

This book looks at the transformation that Art and Art history is undergoing through engagement with the digital revolution. Since its initiation in 1985, CHArt (Computers and the History of Art) has set out to promote interaction between the rapidly developing new Information Technology and the study and practice of Art. It has become increasingly clear in recent years that this interaction has led, not just to the provision of new tools for the carrying out of existing practices, but to the evolution of unprecedented activities and modes of thought. This collection of papers represents the variety, innovation and richness of significant presentations made at the CHArt Conferences of 2001 and 2002. Some show new methods of teaching being employed, making clear in particular the huge advantages that IT can provide for engaging students in learning and interactive discussion. It also shows how much is to be gained from the flexibility of the digital image – or could be gained if the road block of copyright is finally overcome. Others look at the impact on collections and archives, showing exciting ways of using computers to make available information about collections and archives and to provide new accessibility to archives. The way such material can now be accessed via the internet has revolutionized the search methods of scholars, but it has also made information available to all. However the internet is not only about access. Some papers here show how it also offers the opportunity of exploring the structure of images and dealing with the fascinating possibilities offered by digitisation for visual analysis, searching and reconstruction. Another challenging aspect covered here are the possibilities offered by digital media for new art forms. One point that emerges is that digital art is not some discreet practice, separated from other art forms. It is rather an approach that can involve all manner of association with both other art practices and with other forms of presentation and enquiry, demonstrating that we are witnessing a revolution that affects all our activities and not one that simply leads to the establishment of a new discipline to set alongside others.

Distinctly unique, Tel Aviv's street art represents a wide spectrum of cultural backgrounds and aesthetic sensibilities. Echoing the uncertainty that permeates Israel's daily existence, it possesses a rawness and energy found in few modern cities. Through more than 250 images, 14 artist profiles, and comprehensive research, Street Art Tel Aviv introduces the reader to an alternative visual culture that has developed and thrived at a time when the city's building exteriors are plentiful, and living and work spaces are still available to emerging artists. At the turn of the 21st century, Tel Aviv's gritty streets, particularly those in southern industrial neighborhoods, began to host a motley array of spectral faces, uncanny figures, and curious characters. Random graffiti, from scrawls on the walls to stylized letters, made their way into largely vacant spaces. Artistic renderings of band-aids, hearts, and eggplants evolved into iconic city images. Poetic expressions and musings--from the personal to the collective--surfaced increasingly on Tel Aviv's flat facades. And while much of what is painted directly onto the walls avoids commenting on the city's precarious political state, the stencils that continue to surface--often stealthily in the dark--alert us to the city's seemingly irresolvable, ever-present external and internal conflicts. Street Art Tel Aviv also gives entry into Tel Aviv's Central Bus Station, Israel's largest indoor urban art gallery. Showcasing murals in a diverse range of styles, painted directly onto its walls by local, national, and international artists since 2013, it is a favorite site for street art and contemporary art enthusiasts. Herewith the opportunity to explore this vibrant city's visual landscape at a time of transition for both the city itself and for this new visual art genre.

How do we fully engage, embrace and receive from this unique season what is vital to learn? This whole-person integrated approach is not only unique, but it is based in solid research and helps give relief to the all-to-familiar ruts of heavy cognitive processing we find ourselves in during the stress of transition, that bring with it anxiety and such limited awareness. Through 6 main themes of transition, utilizing more than 35 holistic process tools-Movement tools, getting Unstuck tools, and Transition tools-you will find yourself with ample resources for creatively navigating your transition season! This resource guide can be utilized individually as a self- guided practice, or as a companion to the Art of Transition workshop experience, or 2-Day Life Planning process with your transition coach.

Excerpt from The Art of Transition in Plato: A Dissertation The method followed in the present paper is one of compromise. Without attempting an exhaustive study of the process of Platonic dialectic, of Plato's methods of sentence connection, or his use of particles, it is the purpose of this discussion to present from the Platonic dialogues adequate material for the illustration of all these methods of approach to the study of transitions. The stylistic basis of arrangement has not been adopted, but changes in transitional method due to differences in style have been noted. The first chapter contains analyses of a number of representative dialogues. In these analyses only so much of the philosophic content of the argument is given as is necessary to make intelligible the outline of the logical and artistic framework of the dialogue. The chief emphasis is placed on the indication and description of the main points of transition in the argument. The two succeeding chapters are devoted to a more minute study of Plato's methods of transition. The second chapter deals with his usage of conventional transitional formulas and includes a brief, incomplete account of Platonic transitional particles. Under the heading 'plato's literary art of transition' more unusual and artistic means of connection have been discussed. Little or no attempt at formal classification has been made. Similar transitional devices are grouped together for purposes of description. The fre quent union of several transitional elements in one passage and the difficulty of fixing hard and fast boundaries between different types of transition make any rigid classification impossible as well as useless.
