American Artists Against War, 1935--2010, Hardback (August 2015)View all books by David McCarthy
Beginning with responses to fascism in the 1930s and ending with protests against the Iraq wars, this book shows how American artists have borne witness, registered dissent, and asserted the enduring ability of imagination to uncover truths about individuals and nations.
UK Kirkus Review » From 'Fame ' and 'Hedonism' to 'Troubled Times' McCarthy explores the provocactive period of Pop Art that began late 50s and exploded the art scene. By taking mass produced objects and commercial images and refiguring them as 'art', artists such as Warhol and Lichtenstein blurred the distinctions between 'worthy' and 'unworthy' subject matter. Their work was both a critique and a celebration of the excesses of post-war consumerism and opened the gates to the kingdom called 'kitsch'. This study is an accessible introduction to a crucial epoch and follows Pop Art from it's beginnings in the irreverence of Dada and Surrealism, through to the high-water mark of it's popularity. A well-illustrated and welcome addition to The Tate's expanding new library of straightforward introductions to the major movements in modern art. (Kirkus UK)
