- First edition of this rare catalogue for an exhibition designed & organized By Richard Hamilton + produced by the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Department of Fine Art.
‘During the years from 1955 to 1964, what we now know as Pop Art was being defined by a group of artists, art galleries, and critics. Interestingly, this most All-American of art movements had its beginnings in England, with a group of artists, architects, and art critics that were exploring the themes of mass media, advertising, and design. -- While the artists whose names would eventually be tied to the Pop movement were working and showing separately during the late 1950s, it was in the early 1960s that gallerists and museums began linking these artists together. In the beginning, there wasn't even an agreed upon label to apply to the art--Neo-Dada or New Realists were just as likely to be used as Pop. However, common themes clearly indicated that a movement was afoot--a movement that initially was alternately championed and vilified. -- 1964 was the breakout year for what was now universally referred to as Pop Art. The United States Pavilion at the 32nd Venice biennial featured artists tied to the Pop scene. It created a sensation, with critics denouncing it as vulgar and childish. Despite the furor, Robert Rauschenberg was awarded the exhibition's top prize for painting. From that moment, this group of young American artists stepped to the front of the artistic world stage. The themes and imagery associated with Pop Art would become part of the daily vocabulary of the 1960s, influencing the "look" of an entire generation..’ (the clark library)

002. Ashbery, John – Pierre Restany (texts)

New Realists.

New York: Sidney Janis Gallery, 1962. With excerpt from text by Pierre Restany and text by Sidney Janis.

Quarto, un paginated (44 pages) 31 illustrations. Illustrated wrappers. Some minor chafing towards rear cover + former owner’s stamp, otherwise a very fine copy.

   

- First edition of this beautifully produced and early ‘New Realists’ catalogue. Te exhibition include 54 works by the following artists: Peter Blake, John Latham, Peter Phillips, Arman, Christo, Raymond Hains, Yves Klein, Martial Raysse, Daniel Spoerri, Jean Tinguely, Enrico Baj, Gianfranco Baruchello, Tano Testa, Mimmo Rotella, Mario Schifano, Oyvind Fahlström, Per Olof Ultvedt, Peter Agostini, Jim Dine, Robert Indiana, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Moskowitz, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, George Segal, Harold Stevenson, Wayne Thiebaud, Andy Warhol and Tom Wesselmann.

'As Restany himself acknowledged, Nouveau Réalisme did not truly gain international recognition until after its exposure in the United States. The exhibition held at the Sidney Janis Gallery in New York in 1962 was entitled The New Realists and juxtaposed work by Restany's group of Nouveaux Réalistes with that of the emerging generation of American artists who would soon be known as Pop Artists. This juxtaposition strongly influenced the reception of the Nouveaux Réalistes, both in the United States and Western Europe, with the result that for several years Nouveau Réalisme became confused with Pop Art.' from Sophie Cras :Nouveau Réalisme: From Socialist Realism to Capitalist Realism.

..'It was also in 1963 that the Belgian artist Marcel Broodthaers discovered Nouveau Réalisme, a term that was, as noted earlier, used in Belgium more or less interchangeably with Pop Art to describe European and American artists. This former communist who was highly critical of Aragon for defending Socialist Realism made an instant connection between the two terms. As part of Broodthaers' exhibition in 1965, he offered visitors a "Lesson in National Pop Art" in the form of a happening, during which he played the role of "teacher", while his "students" had to respond to everything he said with respectful replies of "Yes, Master" or "No, Master." Nouveau Réalisme was thus parodied as a new form of official art, capitalist in content and national in form, considered by Broodthaers as a "sign of approval" and a "glorification" of modern civilization. The artist explained his views in an interview in 1965, in which, when asked about the possible link between Pop Art and Socialist Realism – "official popular art" – he replied that there was a "reverse connection". "Let us just say [that Nouveau Réalisme] is the black humour of Socialist Realism", he stated.' from Sophie Cras: Nouveau Réalisme: From Socialist Realism to Capitalist Realism.

- First edition. ‘In the book ‘Kex’ Paolozzi combined texts from different sources to produce a continuous flow of words. Paragraphs on biology, horticulture, classical literature, rocket-science, philosophy and many other subjects cancel out individual meanings and make way for new interpretations based on association and juxtaposition. This principle of collage is emphasized by Paolozzi’s decision to have the overall design of the book done in artistic collaboration. The artist Richard Hamilton was responsible for editing and for arranging the text and images.’
