About the Author:

Noel is a painter, designer, and printmaker.

Williams has been a Fluxus activist since the first Festum Fluxorum in Wiesbaden in 1962. He is internationally acclaimed as a poet, performer, and visual artist.

From Publishers Weekly:

The vague recollections that make up this book serve neither George Maciunas, the eccentric master of what one colleague termed an "uncharted vision," nor the Dada-like art movement of the 1960s that he christened "Fluxus." Maciunas (1931-1978), a Lithuanian native who studied art, graphics and architecture in the U. S., lived with his mother until he was 37. In addition to organizing a movement that attempted to break down artistic conventions, he organized the first cooperatives in New York's SoHo district in order to provide affordable housing for artists. Although many of his productions, such as a Fluxmass where smoke bombs replaced candles, were frivolous, some of his activities were not. To chronicle them, Fluxus activist Williams and British painter Noel have gathered reminiscences from his friends and presented them in an order that corresponds roughly to episodes in Maciunas's life. Because the editors offer as much documentation on his habit of buying food in large quantities as they do on his more meaningful pursuits, the book lacks any sense of proportion. It's also unfortunate that certain of the most famous proponents (Yoko Ono, for example) weren't more forthcoming and that the excerpts didn't have better attribution, and thus context, within the book. Ultimately, the image that emerges is bloated and badly blurred. 100 illustrations.

Descrizione libro Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 1998. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. George Maciunas was the founding member and leader of the most radical and experimental art movement of th 1960s: Fluxus . Associated with artists such as Joseph Bueys and Yoko Ono, Fluxus rejected traditional systems of high art and practised a form of anti-art encompassing everything from photography and pavement art to poetry and drama. This biography of one of the key figures in the history of 20th-century art recounts in text and archive photographs the life story of this contradictory and unorthodox man. Emmett Williams provides anecdotes and impressions from former Fluxus colleagues and other friends (and enemies), to produce a portrait of this crusader, whose mission was to change the world - beginning with the world of art. Although tempered with wit and wisdom, his iconoclasm won him few friends amongst the art establishment during his lifetime, but Fluxus prevailed as an acknowledged force behind the upheavals in the art of the 20th century.
