Recession Art & Other Strategies
Gunter Christmann, Peter Cripps, Robert MacPherson, John Nixon, Peter Tyndall

“Recession Art & Other Strategies presents a selection of work by Robert MacPherson, Peter Tyndall, Gunter Christmann, Peter Cripps and John Nixon involving recessional techniques and strategies.  The works span the period 1974 to 1985.” – Peter Cripps

The wonderful and very scarce publication to accompany the exhibition “Recession Art & Other Strategies” at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, in 1986, curated by artist Peter Cripps.  In our opinion, this is one of the finest Australian art exhibition catalogues ever made. Thoughtfully curated, beautifully designed and typeset, with photo documentation of works by the exhibiting artists and a great accompanying essay by curator and artist Peter Cripps.  This text addresses and traces “a recurrence of a ‘Recessional based’ art practice in Australia”.  “The pressure of little money and a small art market has meant that many artists still own the greater part of their life’s production.  The initial difficulty of producing and the subsequent difficulty of disposing of art works is ever present…”.  Touching on Percy Grainger’s ‘Free Music’ machines, to the recent histories of Australian exhibition spaces such Q Space, V Space, IMA, Q Space Annex, n-Space, and printed exhibition spaces such as Blunt Report, Hand Space, Pneumatic Drill, as well as projects such as The Fosterville Institute of Applied and Progressive Cultural Experience and The Anti-Music Collective, this text provides a clear insight into the many productions of these artists and their peers in Australia in the 1980’s, as well as the climate that surrounded their activities.
