The Field

Rare and very collectable first edition of this iconic catalogue produced in 1968 to accompany “The Field”, regarded as a landmark exhibition in Australian art history – a radical showcase of 74 abstract and conceptual, colour field, geometric and hard edge artworks. Influenced by the American origins of abstract art, the exhibition opened to much controversy at the NGV in 1968 with its silver foil-covered walls and geometric light fittings, boldly launching the careers of a generation of young Australian artists including Sydney Ball, Peter Booth, Janet Dawson and Robert Jacks. It was the first the NGV staged in its new Swanston Street galleries.
Handsomely designed with its wrapped, french-flap, die-cut cover, the book includes profiles on each exhibiting artist in the exhibition, including colour and black and white reproductions of all 72 of the works exhibited.

On the occasion of its 50th anniversary the NGV will restage the exhibition as The Field Revisited, opening in May 2018 at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia.

Texts by Elwyn Lynn, Patrick McCaughey, Royston Harpur, and an introduction by Brian Finemore (Curator) and John Stringer (Exhibitions Manager).

Artists included: Sydney Ball, Peter Booth, Janet Dawson, Robert Jacks, James Doolin, David Aspden, Tony Bishop, Ian Burn, Gunter Christmann, Tony Coleing, Noel Dunn, Garry Foulkes, Dale Hickey, Michael Johnson, Col Jordan, Michael Kitching, Alun Leach-Jones, Nigel Lendon, Tony McGillick, Clement Meadmore, Michael Nicholson, Harald Noritis, Alan Oldfield, Wendy Paramor, Paul Partos, John Peart, Emanuel Raft, Melvyn Ramsden, R.C.

MONOCHROMES
Edited by David Pestorius

7 December 2000—24 February 2001
University of Queensland Art Museum, Brisbane

Monochromes was the first major survey in Australia of artists working with a single colour. It presented artworks produced over the previous 35 years by more than 45 Australian and foreign artists who have exhibited work of this nature in Australia. The approach adopted involved selecting one work by each artist and grouping them by colour. And rather than including only artists who might be considered ‘hard-core’ exponents of the painted monochrome, a more expanded view of monochromatic practice was embraced, one that acknowledged critical shifts in contemporary practice since the 1960s, with numerous conceptual and post-conceptual works presented.

A substantial catalogue, with an introduction by David Pestorius, commissioned essays by Andrew McNamara (QUT) and Morgan Thomas (UQ), and comprehensive installation view photo-documentation, was produced in the immediate aftermath of the exhibition.

artists: Ian Anüll (Zurich) Peter Bonde (Copenhagen) Peter Booth (Melbourne) Ian Burn (Melbourne) A.D.S. Donaldson (Sydney) Mikala Dwyer (Sydney) Andreas Exner (Frankfurt) Dale Frank (Brisbane) Marco Fusinato (Melbourne) Gail Hastings (Sydney) Leni Hoffmann (Düsseldorf) Robert Hunter (Melbourne) Robert Jacks (Melbourne) Gerold Miller (Berlin) Ian Milliss (Sydney) Elizabeth Newman (Melbourne) John Nixon (Sydney) Rose Nolan (Melbourne) Robert Owen (Melbourne) Wendy Paramour (Sydney Ti Parks (Melbourne) Mel Ramsden (Oxfordshire) Robert Rooney (Melbourne) Chris Wilder (Los Angeles) Heimo Zobernig (Vienna), and others.
