"A Desirable Residency, A Year as Critic-in-Residence at Newcastle Polytechnic" Vanishingly rare publication by the the hugely influential art critic, Peter Fuller
A Desirable Residency, Peter Fuller. A collection of the lectures, seminar texts and journalism he produced during his year as Critic-in-Residence at Newcastle Polytechnic in 1980. Articles include his views on William Morris, Africa; Painting and Weaving, Picasso etc. Fuller [1947-1990] was one of the most influential art critics in post war Britain, but sadly died in a car accident at the age of only 43. Originally a disciple of John Berger, he eventually became a champion of John Ruskin, shedding much political baggage along the way. The volume [178 pages, spiral bound, covers with mild grubbiness else a good copy] gathers togethers fugitive pieces uncollected elsewhere and is now almost impossible to come by. A crucial document in the understanding of one of the most important voices in Critical Theory and post war British Art.
