Click link to go to title

 

Published to kindle editions in May 2016 the Cv catalogue provides links to over 150 titles available in the Amazon kdp select program and as print on demand. Organised in sectors of Art, Craft, Museum Studies and Art History, Careers, Travel, Social Studies and Studio Work, the catalogue encompasses Cv’s print and online releases to date.

 

The survey began in April 1988 as interviews with artists, jewellers, fashion designers and furniture restorers, based at Old Loom House Studios, Whitechapel, launching a quarterly review Cv Journal of Art and Crafts. Cv Journal was published to 1991 and the collection of interviews, features and reviews provided the basis of the Cv/Visual Arts Research archive and subsequent publications. The archive is published as books and digital files, as well as DVDs in the software catalogue.

 

Cv/Visual Arts Research

 

Interviews-Artists brings together artists active in the fields of painting, drawing, photography, print and sculpture. Recorded conversations from 1989-2011 explore work in progress and the development of their practice. Patterns of personal experience link with a broader continuum of progressive ideas and show how their imaginative interventions bear on the world. The collection of interviews with artists developed in three phases; first researched from 1988-92 and published in the quarterly review, Cv Journal of Art & Crafts. Then gathered in an anthology, Interviews with the Artists: Elements of Discourse, (editions in 1993/1996/2001/2007). The second phase was researched from January to July 2010; the third from October 2010 to August 2011.

Curators and Collections

The first volume of Curators and Collections, published in 1997, was based on interviews and features in the quarterly review: Cv Journal of Art and Crafts (1988-92). Cv Journal recorded the launch of the Irish Museum of Modern Art in 1991, the construction of Tate Modern in 1997, as well as exploring special collections at The National Gallery, Courtauld Gallery, British Museum and Royal Photographic Society. The book also contains a comprehensive guide to public and private collections in England, Scotland and Wales, which is revised and updated in this volume. The arena of the arts has radically transformed in the intervening years, with a tremendous growth in audiences for contemporary art. The study recognises the important role of private foundations and the influence of individual collectors, curators and gallerists in their independent initiatives.

 

"This review perfectly complements our data-base of contemporary art and admirably completes our international area" Agnes de Bretagne, Documentaliste, Musee d'Art Moderne Paris

Social Studies

 

Les Berberes et Moi

After my holiday in Morocco in 2012, I felt a terrible need to go back there and for over a year I had been looking for a way to fulfil such desire. It was simply out of my sympathy, admiration and love for those people who have suffered immense poverty and yet who managed to be so generous and hospitable. During my research I stumbled upon a charity called “Hannan” that has been helping the Berber people in the Middle Atlas Mountains. It was established by a couple called Hannah (British) and Hmad (Moroccan); they built a school from scratch in a village called El Borj, where Hmad was born and raised, that now accommodates about 30 children aged 2-5 years old, and currently they are going through tough regulations and money raising (circa £150.000) for the new school for children aged 5-12 years old. They desperately need volunteers to co-ordinate the existing school by helping teachers, managing the paper work, running extra French classes, basically anything that could help children and the organization to progress. Magdalena Wasiura

Albion Journal

First published as Journal of The Gallery London in 1993 with revised editions in 1998 and 2001, over four hundred entries chronicle the life of the city; a powerfully driven arena of dysfunctional experience. Episodes record incidents and encounters; in the streets, of shoppers and travellers ,and in scenes of social and internal life. As the journal develops, fact and fiction blend into a filmic sequence of events. Reality is coloured by a seamless flow of messages of promise and dereliction, gently gathering strands of the communal imagination into a protective shell.

Cv’s series of English County Guides provide a detailed survey of towns and villages for visitors and those interested in moving to a different area. Writers make personal reports of the natural and historical character of locations, the properties, schools, amenities, communications and business links. Each guide reports on between 150 and 250 villages and county towns. There are route maps, colour photographs, with comprehensive address lists of services, schools and local amenities.

 

 

 

The Guides to English counties is launched with my survey of Oxfordshire. It has been a journey of discovery. Rather than just passing from point A to B my excursions followed an ad-hoc schedule of diverse routes. I found myself turning down obscure side lanes leading to little villages hidden in a marvellous landscape of deep countryside. Documenting over one hundred centres the county gradually revealed itself as largely unspoilt by the industrial sprawl. Oxford itself is of course very lively and cosmopolitan, but communications and facilities are as good in the many market towns. I was really interested to note the range of properties both old and new and the particular character of an area. I hope that my guide provides details and insights that will assist your own enquiries for a new location - Sarah James.

Magdalena Wasiura

It’s more out of the ordinary than the ordinary. Life as it has been experienced, simply lived. This journal presents a fresh look at life in Morocco, gives you an insight as to how the Berbers live, what problems they face, their attitudes, what they know about us Europeans and what they think about us. This book is written by a young woman, who as a voluntary worker travelled to the Middle Atlas Mountains to help the Association Hannan, a charity that has been helping mainly children, but has also been generous to others in need. “The instant discovery of such a different world, led me to want to prove to myself and perhaps others, who doubted that my mission would be successful, that Muslims can be open-minded, amiable, feel the need of love, and that they want more from us than money or a visa.” My focus was on helping others. However, living with a Muslim family and having Muslim friends turned the whole experience into a simple but also complicated series of events which I had never anticipated to live through. Casualties of this five month ‘experiment’ have vividly been portrayed in the book. “Am I one of them?” This journal aims to be funny, quirky, knowledgeable and authentic. “Reach out for it and it is yours.”  Kindle review *****


The Author: Magdalena Wasiura gained a MA degree in journalism and media studies and then worked as a television presenter and reporter in Poland. Multi-lingual she has worked as a dancer, model and actress in France, Italy and England. Her previous contribution to Cv Publications include an interview about Andy Warhol's Brigitte Bardot portraits at Gagosian Gallery 2011, and a profile of the artist Daniel Graves published in 2012.

World Score Dream publishes media studies in the collection of Cv/VAR archive. Beginning with split second scans of TV transmissions in 1976, the series progressed with daily news composites to carbon trace collages, dropping a probe of art into the vast pool of networked communications. The drawings are light and elusive, read slant-wise across images, texts and borders, like blind drawing with unpredictable results. From xerox collages of tabloid headlines the studies moved through the arena of the Falklands War to catch the corporate ethos of the 1980s. Resumed in 2003 a random trawl of magazines scans the popular arenas of gossip, fashion, sport, game shows, celebrities, with the interruption of crises and episodes of loss; elements of a template for the general culture.
