Description - Glam by Darren Pih
This is the first book to fully examine the serious cultural influence of one of the twentieth century's most excessive and exciting pop movements. Glam is held as a prism through which to view and refract artistic developments in Europe and North America, shedding new light on the extravagance of art, performance and visual culture at this time. Covering a range of subjects including fashion, music, film, gender in performance and postmodernism, the book moves beyond a nostalgic reception and reveals the under-acknowledged exchange between avant-garde art and the extravagant style. Tracing the Glam sensibility to performance and installation art, and to painting and sculpture, the book includes artworks from David Hockney and Richard Hamilton, as well as ephemera such as posters, magazines and photographs and the music of T.Rex, David Bowie, Roxy Music and Lou Reed.
