Description

Art historian and curator Dawn Ades is a leading voice on Dada, Surrealism, abstraction and art from Latin America. This volume collects her important essays for the first time, addressing themes fundamental to the history of modern art and the avant-garde.

Arranged thematically, this collection of essays represents the breadth of Ades's critical and curatorial interests, ranging from avant-garde poster design, to photomontage, to the representation of the female in Mexico, but with an overarching foundation in abstraction, identity and the influence of new mediums.

As well as working as a professor and curator - which earned her an OBE for her services to art history - Ades has written on a wide range of artists since 1980. Spanning the likes of Francis Bacon, Richard Deacon, Salvador Dali and Hannah Hoech, this body of essays is ingrained with Ades's consistently clear and intellectually stimulating observations.

To introduce the book, Ades is interviewed by Doro Globus, who explores the writer's relationship to curating, teaching and art history.
