Abstract (English)

Catalogue to accompany Mabb’s exhibition incorporating reproductions of 19th century textiles and wallpaper designs by William Morris. Fleming’s introduction traces the development of Mabb’s work. She compares the artist’s video and paintings to works by Malevich, while drawing attention to ideological, aesthetic and political issues related to “the diminished role of painting within late-capitalist culture.” Edwards’ essay focuses on Mabb’s ambivalent response to Morris’s socialist design. Includes an interview project by Higgs, in which the artist replies to questions posed by 18 individuals. Glossary of names. List of works. 10 bibl. ref.
