Gordon Bennett: Selected Writings

CLASS 00000

Gordon Bennett: Selected Writings is the first publication to survey the writing practice of the late Gordon Bennett (1955–2014), providing vital insight into one of Australia’s most important contemporary artists. Selected Writings profiles the importance of the written word within Bennett’s art and broader intellectual practice. Shifting between scholarly debate, political argument and personal reflections, Bennett’s writings constitute a key component of his life-long interrogation of the power of art, words and images. The collection is edited by Angela Goddard and Tim Riley Walsh, and co-published by Power Publications, Sydney, and Griffith University Art Museum, Brisbane. The book also provides glimpses into Bennett’s personal archive via the reproduction of previously unseen notebooks, correspondence, sketches, preparatory compositions, and more. Offering new knowledge of his creative process, intellectual and artistic influences and professional relationships, this project amplifies Bennett’s already significant contribution to subjects of race and identity in national and global contexts, as well as reaffirming his centrality to postcolonial discourse in the twenty-first century.
