The Art of Mushrooms / A Arte dos Cogumelos
This is the first contemporary art book devoted to a subject that has huge contemporary appeal – the mushroom. Fungi been at the core of ritual, power and ideas around spirituality and strength for thousands of years. They are a catalyst for human understanding today. In recent years, the mushroom has become the inspiration for new models of contemporary art, politics, technology, economics, and design.
This book, edited by curator Francesca Gavin, will include work inspired by mushrooms in fine art, fashion, design, architecture, science, and technology. Alongside artworks in more traditional media such as photography, painting, sculpture, ceramics, collage and film, the compendium would also include mushroom ephemera, science imagery, graphics, illustration, fashion designers, furniture, and architecture.
