ART PAPERS 08.04 - July/Aug 1984
This issue is a collaboration between Art Papers and the Architecture Society of Atlanta. Guest editors from the then fledgling organization examine architecture from a standpoint that decentralizes the building/object and redistributes attention and value to the necessary philosophical, literary, anthropological and metaphysical ideologies. Robert Segrest explores the construction of space as metaphor in literature, Jay Fellows examines Walter Pater poetry, an excerpt from Guy Davenports Apples and Pears appears. Jennifer Bloomer brilliantly dissects what it means to be a "part" of a whole, through fragments of excerpts from other authors, leading us into a feature wrap-up with Henry Methvin and a nice chronological bow examining the future "of contemporary criticism". Reviews featured are of site sculpture at Arts Festival of Atlanta, Oskar Schlemmer's Bauhaus Dances and Kandinsky: Russian and Bauhaus Years (1915-1933) at The High Museum.
