Abstract (English)

An old friend of the artist, Brett surveys Medalla's "impractical and visionary oeuvre" (consisting of kinetic, sculptures, paintings, performances, "impromptus", etc.) and documents the nomadic and improvisatory pattern of the artist's life. The Philippine-born artist, based in London since 1960, stands as a key figure of the avant-garde who also acted as a dandy, an activist, and a "catalyst and publicist of the works of others". Includes many quotes and a text by the artist. Biographical notes. Bibl. 2 p.
