Permanent Revolution: Mike Brown and the Australian Avant-garde 1953 - 1997
As the only Australian artist to have been successfully prosecuted for obscenity, Mike Brown is considered one ofŠAustralia's most controversial figures.ŠThis captivating book offers a comprehensive account of this outspoken artist═s life and work. Brown═s imitation realism was the first Australian art movement to incorporate collage, assemblage, and installation, as well as the first to respond in a profound way to Aboriginal art and to the tribal art of New Guinea and the Pacific region. This biography also serves as a portrait of the social and political upheaval that gripped Australia during the 1960s and 1970s.
