Light & Darkness

Late Modernism and the JW Power Collection

Edited by Ann Stephen
Light & Darkness offers a unique perspective on the twenty-five-year history and evolution of the JW Power Collection, one of the most significant art collections of local and international art in Australia. It explores luminosity, color, movement, race, gender, and politics across three decades of late modernism, introducing this collection to a new generation. This volume also features essays from prominent art historians and curators, including an illuminating introduction by art historian and curator Ann Stephen


"A revelation . . . Under curator Ann Stephen's deft editorial hand, some 70 works from the 1500 in the Power Collection point to key directions—the wonderful luminal and kinetic works from the late 1960s; the diversity of the 1970s, ranging from Jasper Johns to On Kawara; the turn in the 1980s to collecting art from Australia and New Zealand. All these works are illuminated by fresh research, in probing essays showing that scholarship is the flame that sustains all museums."—Julie Ewington, independent writer, curator, and broadcaster, Sydney, and former Head of Australian Art, QAOMA, Brisbane
