Summary

Lines towards Another is the first anthology on the work of Australian contemporary artist Tom Nicholson. Spanning drawing, sculpture, public actions, sound, installation, video, and performance, Nicholson's work since the 1990s has engaged with critical questions around history, politics, narrative, and representation. Informed by the colonial history of Australia, and motivated by the work of Aboriginal Australian activists, his practice at its most fundamental level examines the role of images and monuments as both catalysts and potential barriers for the creation of histories, reimagining their forms through modes of commemoration. Presenting new research on the artist and providing an unprecedented overview of two decades of work, the book features eleven essays and two interviews, alongside richly illustrated project pages and texts by the artist.
