This Is the Day
The March on Washington
Leonard Freed
Foreword by Julian Bond
Introduction by Michael Eric Dyson
Afterword by Paul Farber
This Is the Day

"At his best, Freed captures the dignity of the individuals as well as the drama and tension of the day. In addition to capturing the overall event and the incredible numbers in attendance, Freed also shot many affecting individual and smaller group portraits from this truly pivotal day in our nation's journey."
Publishers Weekly

Conserving Contemporary Art
Issues, Methods, Materials, and Research
Oscar Chiantore and Antonio Rava
Conserving Contemporary Art

Since the advent of the avant-garde in the early twentieth century, visual artists have adopted new techniques and materials, some of whose characteristics of aging and wear are still largely unknown today. The conservator's intervention has become increasingly delicate, problematic, and experimental and requires not only technical knowledge of materials but also a greater awareness of the artist's intellectual universe. Translated from Italian to reach a wider audience, this is one of the first books to give a comprehensive overview of the many considerations faced by the conservator of modern and contemporary art.

Provenance
An Alternate History of Art
Edited by Gail Feigenbaum and Inge Reist
Provenance

This book goes beyond the narrow definition of the term provenance, which addresses only the bare facts of ownership and transfer, to explore ideas about the origins and itineraries of objects, consider the historical uses of provenance research, and draw attention to the transformative power of ownership.
