OP HEADLANDS: THINKING THROUGH NEW ZEALAND ART. Robert Leonard et al. Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, 1992. Organized in association with National Art Gallery, Wellington. 230 pp. with 209 ills. (28 col.). 27 x 22 cm. ISBN 1875632042 In English.
This in-depth examination of the development of postwar art in New Zealand documents a diverse selection of more than 100 paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs and other works produced from the 1940s to the 1990s by 38 New Zealand artists, including both figurative and abstract pieces in a wide range of indigenous, modernist and postmodernist idioms. A cultural chronology of the period supplements nine essays discussing such topics as the importance of landscape as a theme in New Zealand art, the innovative adaptation of Western styles by contemporary Maori artists, the role of Christian imagery in the work of Colin McCahon, Milan Mrkusich and other painters, recent developments in New Zealand filmmaking, and the evolution of art criticism in the country since 1950.
