Pop to Popism catalogue, AGNSW 2014

The Art Gallery of New South Wales' current large-scale, self-produced exhibition Pop to Popism, is accompanied by a significant 300 page catalogue of the same title, edited by AGNSW curators Wayne Tunnicliffe and Anneke Jaspers.

This important book makes a connection between North American, British and Australian Pop art and what came after, Popism. I contributed two short essays to it, one on Cindy Sherman, particularly her photograph Untitled 1982 and in reference to her better known film stills (p. 254), and one on Martha Rosler's amazing early collage series House beautiful: bringing the war home 1967-72 (p. 196).

Thanks to Wayne and Anneke.
