OP FETISHISM: VISUALISING POWER AND DESIRE. Ed. by Anthony Shelton. Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, 1995.

Exploring the origins and implications of the concept of the fetish and its complex manifestations in Western and non-Western art, this catalogue documents an exhibition of some 80 diverse works that included numerous African sculptural pieces; Surrealist photographs and objects; and contemporary assemblages by Sophie Calle, Annette Messager, Tony Oursler, Renee Stout and ten other artists. Reproductions of many of the exhibited works are interspersed among four substantial essays elucidating the evolution of European interpretations of African ritual objects from the 15th century through the colonial period, the function of "nail fetishes" in Kongo culture, the role of fetishistic images in Surrealist art, and the social and psychological concerns of current artists whose iconography incorporates elements of fetishism.
