Heresies

Heresies: A Feminist Publication on Art and Politics ran independently from 1977 to 1993. Each issue focused on a different topic such as food, theater, or ecology. Between the covers you’ll find photography, film stills, sculptures, paintings, poems, prose, memoirs, collage, and documentations of performance art. Contributors included Harmony Hammond, Ida Applebroog, May Stevens, Mary Beth Edelson, Sally Webster, and Amy Sillman.

Here is the homepage for the 2009 documentary on Heresies called “The Heretics”, directed by Joan Braderman. The site includes an index to the articles.

FiberArts

FiberArts  features contemporary artists who work with fabric, weaving, sewing, dyes, textiles, embroidery, crochet, knitting, needlework and soft sculpture in order to produce works that boast both fine craftsmanship and fine art. Although expression and decoration with textiles is ancient, it was only fairly recently accepted in the fine arts world. The fibers revolution of the 1960’s led to a huge number of artists, both men and women, exploring and experimenting in a medium which was once labeled “women’s work” or pushed aside from the arts scene as mere craft.

Cover

The images that follow are all from the comic YuYu Hakusho by Yoshihiro Togashi, which centers around teenage rebel/gang member/punk Yusuke Urameshi.

The compositions, in fight scenes especially, are extremely dynamic, with onomatopoeia sprinkled all over the place (WHAM!):

The comic is graphically playful — many different textures (halftones, gradients, speckles, marble, probably achieved through Letratone) are juxtaposed side-by-side and flatten the image.

Togashi sometimes entirely changes his drawing style for a single panel and draws a character off-model for comedic or dramatic effect.

American Fabrics and Fashion

American Fabrics and Fashion (also called American Fabrics) was a commercial textile magazine created as a guide for manufacturers in the fabrics industry. In every issue there are dozens of physical fabric samples glued in, so in case you were wondering, “What did the 50’s feel like?”, here is the most literal answer to your question. Accompanying the samples are textile advertisements and sometimes the samples are even incorporated into the ads themselves. For anyone interested in fashion, textiles or all that is tactile, American Fabrics is a publication of great cultural and historical value.
