This book brings together the writings that Clara Porset—a central and founding figure of Mexican Modern design—published in specialized media in Cuba, the United States and Mexico between 1930 and 1965. Published by Alias under their antítesis collection, these texts reflect Porset’s intellectual accuracy and her vast practical experience as a design professional.
Edited by Ana Elena Mallet, La vida en el arte (Life in Art) was designed with the same attention to detail with which Porset documented her research on the future of design during that period. Respecting Alias’s characteristic style, this publication understands design as a tool to improve everyday life and uses blue as a vibrant color that sets the tone for this artist’s voice and practice.
