Colorful, thought-provoking, eclectic, and readable, Summer of Love is the definitive guide to the art of the psychedelic era. Richly illustrated, the book presents a wide range of images of artworks-including posters, record covers, photography, ...
and film-alongside a wealth of contextual material and a number of informative essays by leading academics, cultural theorists, and critics. Moving beyond nostalgia to cover a wide range of issues, the contributors examine the profound influence of the aesthetics of psychedelia on the art and culture of the 1960s and later. At the same time, the book explores the historical context in which this vibrant art was created, an era marked by political protest, recreational drug use, student revolution, and sexual liberation. The artists featured include major figures such as Andy Warhol, Robert Indiana, and Yayoi Kusama as well as long-neglected artists and designers. Summer of Love serves as a much-needed critical reevaluation of this fascinating era in art and cultural history. AUTHOR BIO: Christoph Grunenberg is director of Tate Liverpool.
