Gordon Bennett: Selected Writings | Author: Gordon Bennett
Gordon Bennett: Selected Writings is the first publication to survey the writing practice of the late Gordon Bennett (1955-2014), giving vital insight into one of Australia's most important contemporary artists in his own words. Bringing together nearly forty published and unpublished essays, artist's statements, letters, and interviews from across Bennett's nearly thirty-year career, Selected Writings profiles the importance of the written word within his art and broader intellectual practice. The book also provides glimpses into Bennett's personal archive via the reproduction of previously unseen notebooks, correspondence, sketches, preparatory compositions, and more.
Through its focus on Bennett's written voice, which shifts between scholarly debate, political argument and personal reflections, this publication reveals Bennett considered art and life to be just as entangled as words and images.
