The catalogue is a fascinating encounter between author Phillip Lindley, an art historian whose specialism has been the history of iconoclasm, with Amikam Toren, Israeli-born London-resident conceptual artist. Works are from the Frangenberg collection of Wolfson College and from the collection of the artist: many not previously exhibited or published. The introduction contextualises Toren’s work alongside other conceptual artists from Duchamp through Kosuth to the new generation of neo-conceptualists: and describes why colleagues and contemporaries view Toren, often working outside the mainstream, as an “artist’s artist”. The catalogue is accompanied by an important new essay by artist Lulu Ao, comparing Toren’s ‘Armchair Paintings’ with contemporary Chinese conceptual art.
Soft cover, 100 pages, 47 colour illustrations, introduction and catalogue text by Phillip Lindley, with an essay by Lulu Ao.
