Over the past decade Eva Rothschild has earned a reputation as one of Britain's leading sculptors. Her compelling sculptures invoke a complex relationship between abstract form, and the conceit that an object can bear a dimension beyond its mere empirical properties. Her work references and rephrases the vocabularies of progressive art movements of the 1960s and 1970s, such as Minimalism, while also suggesting aspects of both conventional and alternative spirituality and faith. There is a sense that her recurrent materials, metal, wood, ceramic, leather and Perspex, become imbued in her sculptures with an apparent ability to transcend their innate physical limitations. Rothschild's work examines how we perceive objects, and the layers of meaning that we invest into them. Included is a conversation between Eva Rothschild and Laura Hoptman.

Eva Rothschild's large-scale sculptural compositions explore relationships between surface and structure whilst testing the boundaries between the abstract and figurative.Accompanying a solo exhibition at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, Dublin (23 May - 21 September 2014), this volume features a number of recent sculptures by the Irish-born artist alongside a series of photographic portraits of gallery visitors holding snakes.Using diverse materials, such as wood, steel and fibreglass, Rothschild investigates sculptural form by testing the limits of those materials. With references to Minimalism and Constructivism, Rothschild's work aims to invert Modernism's forms and question its utopian ideas.Alongside full-colour illustrations, this volume includes texts by Brian Dillon and Michael Dempsey which closely examine Rothschild's installation at the gallery and her ties to broader art history.

Best-Practice EVA

The Definitive Guide to Measuring and Maximizing Shareholder Value

Best-Practice EVA tells the new EVA story from the ground up. Stewart covers EVA essentials—the classic economic profit version of EVA—in the first three chapters of the book. He shows readers how simple and intuitive EVA really is, how it is defined, and why it is better than all other measures of corporate profit. You discover how it naturally guides managers into making all the right decisions—the ones that will truly maximize value. You see how to use it in profit-sharing bonus plans that create the powerful incentives of an owner. Later, Stewart introduces new ratios that make EVA much more powerful and much easier to use than ever before. The pinnacle of the new ratio framework is EVA Momentum, calculated by taking the change in EVA versus the prior period, and dividing by the revenues in the prior period. It measures the growth rate in EVA, scaled to the sales size of the business. It is the only corporate performance ratio where bigger always is better, because it gets bigger when EVA does, which means it should be every company's most important financial goal, the one ratio metric that everyone aims to maximize as the key measure of corporate success. Stewart then walks through the nuts and bolts of Best-Practice EVA, kicking off with an in-depth look at EVA Margin, or EVA as a percent of sales. It’s a key productivity metric, and Stewart’s candidate to replace ROI. The last link in the Best-Practice program is PRVit—the EVA market score report. Stewart shows how to read and interpret the report, how the score is determined, and why investors are turning to it to screen and rate stocks. He also shows why it is finding a home with CFOs and IR directors who want insights into how the market is pricing their stock. The book concludes with battle-tested tips from the firing line, practical suggestions for how you can test drive and adopt Best-Practice EVA at your company.

Eva Rothschild was born into the upscale Berlin world of the 1920s, an artistic, Cabaret society that lived on the edge between the two World Wars. Her secure world crumbled to pieces with the arrival of Hitler's storm troopers, forcing her parents to flee with their two daughters from Germany to Montevideo, Uruguay. Energetic and alive, she yearned for freedom to express herself in her own fashion, through dance and learning, until she finally took the daunting step of moving to New York City. In her third country, with her third language, she found the life she sought, with Boris Kastel, who was also on a personal life quest. Eva's story covers nearly a century. And it is by no means finished.

In May of 1939 the Cuban government turned away the Hamburg-America Line’s MS St. Louis, which carried more than 900 hopeful Jewish refugees escaping Nazi Germany. The passengers subsequently sought safe haven in the United States, but were rejected once again, and the St. Louis had to embark on an uncertain return voyage to Europe. Finally, the St. Louis passengers found refuge in four western European countries, but only the 288 passengers sent to England evaded the Nazi grip that closed upon continental Europe a year later. Over the years, the fateful voyage of the St. Louis has come to symbolize U.S. indifference to the plight of European Jewry on the eve of World War II. Although the episode of the St. Louis is well known, the actual fates of the passengers, once they disembarked, slipped into historical obscurity. Prompted by a former passenger’s curiosity, Sarah Ogilvie and Scott Miller of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum set out in 1996 to discover what happened to each of the 937 passengers. Their investigation, spanning nine years and half the globe, took them to unexpected places and produced surprising results. Refuge Denied chronicles the unraveling of the mystery, from Los Angeles to Havana and from New York to Jerusalem. Some of the most memorable stories include the fate of a young toolmaker who survived initial selection at Auschwitz because his glasses had gone flying moments before and a Jewish child whose apprenticeship with a baker in wartime France later translated into the establishment of a successful business in the United States. Unfolding like a compelling detective thriller, Refuge Denied is a must-read for anyone interested in the Holocaust and its impact on the lives of ordinary people.

Contemporary British Art

An Introduction

ISBN: 1135654832

Page: 304

The last few decades have been among the most dynamic within recent British cultural history. Artists across all genres and media have developed and re-fashioned their practice against a radically changing social and cultural landscape – both national and global. This book takes a fresh look at some of the themes, ideas and directions which have informed British art since the later 1980s through to the first decade of the new millennium. In addition to discussing some iconic images and examples, it also looks more broadly at the contexts in which a new ‘post-conceptual’ generation of artists, those typically born since the late 1950s and 1960s have approached and developed aspects of their professional practice. Contemporary British Art is an ideal introduction to the field. To guide the reader, the book is organised around genres or related practices – painting; sculpture and installation; and film, video and performance. The first chapter explores aspects of the contemporary art market and some of the contexts within which art is made, supported and exhibited. The chapters that discuss various genres of art practice also mention books that may be useful to support further reading. Extensively illustrated with a wide range of work (both known, and less well-known) from artists such as Chris Ofili, Rachel Whiteread, Damien Hirst, Banksy, Anthony Gormley, Jack Vettriano, Sam Taylor-Wood, Steve McQueen and Tracey Emin, and many more.

This provocative publication explores the reexamination and the redeployment of forms and devices drawn from Minimal art by numerous contemporary artists. Taking into account their present adoption by the culture and design industries, the featured artists update the inherent contradiction of the neo-avant-gardes of the 1960s--between their aspiration for the autonomy of art and the heteronomy of the means to achieve this. Looking back on the aporias of such historical heritage, the practices discussed here start afresh, initiate a new game, which privileges accident rather than essence, "nonformalism" rather than formal resolution, and disfunctionality rather than efficient rationality.

In a world falling to pieces, a new breed of art objects is capturing its fractured allure in three dimensions.UNMONUMENTAL features recent work by thirty contemporary sculptors at the vanguard of their craft, selected by one of contemporary art's top curatorial teams.The sculptures in UNMONUMENTAL are forerunners in a major new artistic development.They are powerful but patently un-heroic; assembled from bits of the world at large, they are sardonic metaphors for our time.The artists featured in the book range from the just-emerged (Tobias Buche, Claire Fontaine, Gedi Sibony) to the internationally renowned (John Bock, Isa Genzken, Rachel Harrison).UNMONUMENTAL is generously illustrated with large full-color photographs of the works, most of which have never before been published.UNMONUMENTAL was created in conjunction with the inaugural exhibition of the New Museum of Contemporary Art's landmark new building, designed by Seijima + Nishazawa / SANAA, on the Bowery in New York.
