Constructivism and Australian Art
Call of the Avant-Garde: Constructivism and Australian Art Exhibition Catalogue
For more than one hundred years, artists have drawn inspiration from the early twentieth-century avant-garde movement Constructivism. Its abstract forms, utopian ideals and vision of art’s vital role in constructing a new society have continued to act as a beacon for artists of successive generations in many countries. This extensive survey of over seventy artists explores how Australian artists have responded to this ground breaking modernist movement and its enduring call upon their imaginations from the 1930s to the present day.
Essay contributions by Sue Cramer, Lesley Harding plus additional focus texts by 24 acclaimed Australian writers and curators.
