- We can order this
Accompanying the first major exhibition of Paolozzi's art since 1975, this publication presents a fresh and comprehensive overview of his work from the 1940s to the 1990s, highlighting not only his unique position as one of Britain's most dynamic, versatile and pugilistic artists, but also the relevance of his work today.
As well as entries on more than 100 works and a full bibliography, the book presents new approaches to Paolozzi by critics Hal Foster and Jon Wood, and by the contemporary Mexican artist Mariana Castillo Deball; new research and comment by Beth Williamson, Lisa Maddigan Newby and Dawn Ades; a discussion on Paolozzi's public sculpture with Turner Prize winners Assemble; and a reprint of a brilliant 1971 conversation between Paolozzi and the novelist J.G. Ballard.
