about

Jill Carrick's Nouveau R¿isme, 1960s France, and the Neo-avant-garde provides the first in-depth historical analysis of the "New Realism" movement and the critical and theoretical debates it engaged. This text makes available a new corpus of material - the rich historical and theoretical analysis as well as the fascinating photographic documentation of artists and works - from one of the most significant French art movements of the post-World War II period, whose literature has up to now been dominated by the terms of its founder, Pierre Restany. The illustrations and surprising contextual material - many of which have been unearthed by the author's archival research - document artwork, artists' collaborations, and ephemeral events.
Jill Carrick teaches art history and cultural theory at Carleton University, Canada, in the department of Art History and the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture. Her research interests include collaborative art and interdisciplinary theory.
