Summary
  • "In light of the revival of international interest in performance art, this collection of essays looks afresh at Mike Parr's astonishing contribution to Australian visual culture through his uncompromising practice. To this day, no other Australian artist has manifested the experimental spirit of postmodernism to such a degree. This volume has gathered together writers from across Australia, both long established and emerging, to examine ideas and themes that run throughout the artist's almost 50 year career. Their essays explore Parr's concurrent and reflective thought processes that circle through politics, philosophy, literature and psychoanalysis and, ultimately, revolve around his Self Portrait project"--Director's foreword.
  • Mike Parr is one of Australia's pre-eminent artists with a practice spanning performance, film, painting, sculpture and printmaking. Emerging from a background of conceptual art in the early 1970s, his interrogatory poems and word works escalated into the provocative performance art for which he is now recognised internationally. The publication brings together 13 essays by Australian artists, poets, curators and critics reflecting on aspects of Parr's long career. The associated exhibition is the first exhibition to bring together Parr's work in all media from 1970 to the present.
