Intertwining art history, aesthetic theory, and Latin American studies, Aarnoud Rommens challenges contemporary Eurocentric revisions of the history of abstraction through this study of the Uruguayan artist Joaquín Torres-García. After studying and painting (for decades) in Europe, Torres-García returned in 1934 to his native home, Montevideo, with the dream of reawakening and revitalizing what he considered the true indigenous essence of Latin American art: "Abstract Spirit." Rommens rigorously analyses the paradoxes of the painter's aesthetic-philosophical doctrine of Constructive Universalism as it sought to adapt European geometric abstraction to the Americas. Whereas previous scholarship has dismissed Torres-García's theories as self-contradictory, Rommens seeks to recover their creative potential as well as their role in tracing the transatlantic routes of the avant-garde. Through the highly original method of reading Torres-García's artworks as a critique on the artist's own writings, Rommens reveals how Torres-García appropriates the colonial language of primitivism to construct the artificial image of "pure" pre-Columbian abstraction. Torres-García thereby inverts the history of art: this book teases out the important lessons of this gesture and the implications for our understanding of abstraction today. [less ▲]

This report presents the results of a study of innovations in the organization and management of work activities. The research question addressed was whether and how administrative innovations contribute to improving the performance of organizations, such as their efficiency and effectiveness and their ability to develop and deliver innovative products and services. More specifically, the study looked at the performance effects of innovations in the governance and management of information technology (IT) in the 50 American state governments. Governments everywhere are trying to improve efficiency and effectiveness, and IT is seen as a key factor in achieving that goal. But delivering IT projects and services in state government is an activity that has to be organized and managed efficiently and effectively in order for states to achieve the desired benefits of using IT. The study focused on how states currently govern IT, how and why they made changes in the way they govern IT, and the performance outcomes they achieved from changing their IT governance arrangements. Scientifically, the study aimed to test and extend current thinking about how, why, and how much administrative innovations, in general, and IT governance arrangements, in particular, can improve organizational performance. In order to make a strong test of current ideas, the study used different measurements and data collection procedures than prior studies and examined the research questions in the public sector context. By finding that some American state governments achieved IT-related performance improvements by changing their IT governance arrangements, this study increases confidence in the idea that administrative innovations are important to organizational success. The study also significantly extends current thinking about IT governance by sho wing that governance has two dimensions — 1) organizational structure and personnel management authority and 2) decision making influence — that can each affect organizational performance, but do not necessarily go together. This means that organizations may have more choices of how to design good IT governance than is typically thought. In addition to two familiar options (centralized and decentralized), the study explored the potential of two additional governance arrangements — 1) centralization-by-standardization and 2) decentralization-by-participation. Only the first of these additional alternatives (centralization-by-standardization) was observed in the 50 American states, raising the possibility that the second option (decentralization-by-participation) is an unexploited opportunity. Although future research will be necessary before confident recommendations for action can be made, the results of this research indicate that some states are already benefiting from adopting IT governance innovations, and that other states could possibly also do so.

The Biennales of Venice are not limited to exhibitions in national pavilions. Every year artists and architects choose to confront the site and more specifically, the lagoon. In the edition of 2005, the artist O. Eliasson proposed an installation (Your black horizon, 2005) where the visitors left the wide expanse and intense light of the lagoon to enter a darkened enclosed space with subtle light effects. These aesthetic experiences enhanced the visitors’ perception of light by changing the usual spatiality and temporality of colour. We will analyze the role of memory in the rite of the visit, and look at how the museal strategies of the artist create a play with spatial memory and sense of orientation in relation to the outdoor space of the lagoon.

L’expression «art public» désigne l’ensemble des oeuvres d’art qui ont été commandées, planifiées et exécutées en vue d’être placées dans un espace public. Partant de cette définition sommaire, on pourrait être tenté d’établir une différence entre un art public de commande et un art public plus sauvage : d’un côté, une instance publique souhaite qu’un artiste produise une oeuvre reflétant l’état d’esprit d’un environnement urbain donné et de ses habitants ; de l’autre, les artistes font des percées intempestives dans le paysage visuel de la ville – et ce, sans qu’on leur ait rien demandé. Cette distinction servirait une stratégie sans doute grossière visant à séparer au sein de l’espace public art de convenance et art subversif. Là où les uns essaieraient de rencontrer les goûts normés du citoyen moyen, les autres prendraient au contraire le risque de la désapprobation en déstabilisant les codes en vigueur et les normes esthétiques. Mais cette opposition entre art de convenance et art subversif constitue probablement un cliché grotesque. Aussi adoptera-t-on un point de vue plus fécond en montrant plutôt les contiguïtés entre l’art de commande et de l’art sauvage. Dans un cas comme dans l’autre, dès que les oeuvres d’art sont publiques, elles posent des problèmes spécifiques. Quels que soient les objectifs qui l’animent, dès qu’il franchit les murs de l’institution, du musée ou de la galerie, l’artiste prend un risque considérable. Et au fond, que sa proposition artistique soit autorisée ou illégale, d’un certain point de vue, le risque demeure. C’est ce qu’il s’agira ici d’identifier. [less ▲]
