Description - Australiana to Zeitgeist: An A-Z of Contemporary Australian Art by Melissa Loughnan
Many critics have traditionally dismissed Australian art as derivative. Australiana to Zeitgeist offers an immersive look at a new breed of early career Australian artists proving them wrong. Championing underrepresented and often, unrepresented up-and-comers, it delves into the various themes shaping the Australian psyche and showcases not only contemporary artists, but also artists who are making work that is new and relevant.
From a range of disciplines and working across multiple mediums, these rising stars are making waves here and offshore and setting the direction for generations to follow. From Australiana to Zeitgeist with Kitsch, Land Art and Xerox in between, this book brings together the work of 78 dynamic Australian artists you need to know, now.
