Eduardo Paolozzi

Edited by Daniel F. Herrmann. Text by Hal Foster, Jon Wood, Mariana Cristallo Deball.

Eduardo Paolozzi was one of the most innovative and irreverent British artists of the 20th century. Considered the “godfather of Pop art,” his powerful collages, sculptures and prints participated in and pushed back against the currents of postwar British art history, from his 1947 collage “I Was a Rich Man’s Plaything” to the 1950s “Geometry of Fear” sculpture, through the Swinging Sixties and on to the advent of “Cool Britannia.” In the event of a nuclear holocaust, J.G. Ballard said, Paolozzi’s enormous body of work “could serve as evidence to reconstruct the 20th century.”
Accompanying the first major international exhibition of Paolozzi’s art since 1975, this publication presents a comprehensive overview of Paolozzi’s work from the 1940s to the 1990s, reassessing one of the most dynamic, versatile and pugilistic artists from Britain and highlighting the relevance of his work for artists today. As well as including a history of the artist’s work in an international context, the book presents new approaches to Paolozzi from Hal Foster and Jon Wood, as well as a contribution by the contemporary Mexican artist Mariana Cristallo Deball.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The Spectator

Laura Freeman

The cataloge...is superb.

The Telegraph

Mark Hudson

Paolozzi effectively invented pop art, collaging brash consumer imagery from US magazines.... an excellent introduction to a fascinating, yet oddly inscrutable figure.

The Art Newspaper

Simon Martin

The artist’s relevance to our disruptive digital age shines through…. a substantial catalogue.

Eduardo Paolozzi

Eduardo Paolozzi

In a 1971 interview with J.G. Ballard, Eduardo Paolozzi describes his work as an extension of radical Surrealism, rather than Pop. Ballard comments, "The environment is filled with more fiction and fantasy than any of us can singly isolate. It’s no longer necessary for us individually to dream. This completely cuts 
the ground from under all the tenets of classical Surrealism. Why I admire Eduardo 
is because he’s making within the span of his own lifetime as an adult, sculpture and graphic art which is a complete turnabout. I mean that he’s accommodated himself to this change. From his early sculpture, where he was using the technique appropriate at the time of overlaying an external reality, the world of nuts and bolts technology, with his own fantasies, he’s gone round now to the opposite position. He’s now analyzing external fictions." Paolozzi's "Computer-Epoch" (1967) from the Universal Electronic Vacuum print series, is reproduced from Whitechapel's excellent new retrospective catalog. continue to blog

Eduardo Paolozzi

Eduardo Paolozzi

"Diana as an Engine I" (1963) is reproduced from the superbly made catalog to Whitechapel Gallery's current Eduardo Paolozzi retrospective. Spanning four decades and ranging from tapestry and fabric design to record covers, ceramics, collage, cast metal sculpture and, above all, prints, this volume miraculously manages to capture the spirit and prolific output of one of the most incorrigibly experimental artists of the twentieth century, an irreverent pioneer of Pop art with a "magpie sensibility" and a deep-seated need for reinvention. Whitechapel director Iwona Blazwick writes, "He is like an anthropologist who sees industrial design and ancient ruins, western and non-western visual cultural, fine art and comic books, forms of reflection and signals of communication, organic and human life as one great continuum." continue to blog
