Summary "Ranging from the 1880s to the 1960s, this richly illustrated history of cafés, cabarets and clubs in modern art includes both famed and little-known sites of the avant-garde. Organised by city, 'Into the Night' presents an exhilarating journey into a selection of social spaces across the world, from New York to Tehran, Paris, Mexico City, London, Berlin, Vienna, Ibadan and beyond. Bringing together painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, performance, film and archival material, this publication highlights the work of artists, performers, designers, musicians and writers such as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Loďe Fuller, Josef Hoffmann, Wyndham Lewis and Giacomo Balla, as well as Ramón Alva de la Canal, Theo van Doesburg, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Jeanne Mammen, Anita Berber, Aaron Douglas, Jacob Lawrence, Colette Omogbai, Twins Seven-Seven and Parviz Tanavoli. Fourteen newly commissioned essays, accompanied by numerous artworks and rarely seen ephemera, explore how these unique spaces fostered a spririt of experimentation and collaboration, sparking new forms of artistic expression." --publisher's description, lower cover.
This book explores the role of cabarets, clubs, and cafés in modern art. These creative spaces were incubators of radical thinking, in which artists could exchange provocative ideas. They were welcoming environments for artists, dancers, designers, writers, and musicians pushing the boundaries of cultural and social norms. Spanning the decades from the 1880s to the 1960s, this unique and multi-faceted illustrated history of alternative artistic spaces covers four continents and includes both famed and little-known sites of the avant-garde. Organized by city, it features painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, film, and archival material emanating from over a dozen cabarets, clubs, and bars that were home to the likes of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Loie Fuller, Josef Hoffmann, Giacomo Balla, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Theo Van Doesburg, Jeanne Mammen, Jacob Lawrence, Ramon Alva de la Canal, and Ibrahim El-Salahi. It includes photographs of the interiors of the Chat Noir in Paris, the Cafe L'Aubette in Strasbourg and the Mbari Club in Nigeria; a cocktail menu from the Cabaret Fledermaus in Vienna; a 1930s night club map of Harlem; posters and invitations advertising performances at the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich and Mexico City's Cafe de Nadie; and countless artworks that emerged from these spaces conveying the energy and excitement of the time. A series of enlightening essays explore how each space fostered and stimulated new forms of artistic expression.
