Summary
Edited and written by Denise Mimmocchi, with a foreword by Michael Brand and essays by Paula Dredge, David Marr, Michael Mel, Steven Miller, Cara Pinchbeck, Leanne Santoro, Aida Tomescu and Pedro Wonaeamirri. Tony Tuckson's story is not a simple one. He was an artist - arguably Australia's most significant abstract expressionist painter - but he was also instrumental in transforming the modern Australian art museum. This new book looks at Tuckson through the many and varied prisms that reveal his critical role to art in Australia. Tuckson had been painting long before his first solo exhibition in 1970 and although he was a dedicated and serious artist he was a very private one who exhibited rarely. His other career was at the Art Gallery of New South Wales where, amongst other things, he commissioned, collected and created the first dedicated display spaces for Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Pacific art. Beautifully designed and richly illustrated, this book will enlighten all on the art and legacy of Tony Tuckson
