After experiencing an especially inspiring show at a museum, we can’t help but pick up the wonderful catalogues that accompany exhibitions. They are a great way to look back and learn more about specific works, and are often masterfully executed as well. A few terrific ones we’ll be sure to pick up, even if we can’t make the show – Moma’s Inventing Abstraction is a wonderful collection of early 20th-century artists transforming our concept of art. The Met’s Schiaparelli & Prada: Impossible Conversations is a great compare/contrast exercise between the two Italian fashion designers. And supporting the V&A’s exhibition on David Bowie’s personal archive, check out David Bowie Is, covering his creative work and collaborations throughout his career.
