Discover the playful spirit, visual energy and political thrust of graphic art from the 1960s and 1970s at their exhibition opening for Yes Yes Yes Yes: Graphics from the 1960s and 1970s. These decades were an exciting period in art, when advances in printmaking techniques and the ever-increasing power of mass-media provided artists with diverse and innovative ways to communicate their art to a wider audience. The exhibition features works from the Art Gallery of NSW’s international collection by renowned artists including Joe Tilson, Eduardo Paolozzi, Sigmar Polke and Gerhard Richter. Inspired by the title of a work by Joe Tilson, the phrase ‘yes yes yes yes’ evokes the democratic spirit and ethos of technical innovation shared by many of these artists and their printers, who sought to distribute ‘fine art’ imagery more broadly through methods of mechanical reproduction.
