Australiana to Zeitgeist : An A-Z of Contemporary Australian Art
by Melissa Loughnan
The only book to explore the diversity of art and the various themes shaping the Australian psyche today.
Many international critics continue to dismiss Australian art as derivative or provincial. Australiana to Zeitgeist offers an immersive look at a new breed of early to mid-career Australian artists proving them wrong.
Championing underrepresented and often unrepresented artists, the book showcases 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, setting the direction for the following generations.
From Australiana to Zeitgeist with Internet, Kitsch, and Xerox in between, this book brings together the work of seventy-eight dynamic Australian artists that you need to know, now.
