Texts by Owen Hatherley, Michael Ned Holte, and Jon Savage. Notes by Michael Wilkinson
Michael Wilkinson’s practice draws from a complex negotiation of political, cultural, and personal references. Influenced by art, social history, political radicalism, Marxist theory, popular music, and punk subculture of the 1970s and 1980s, these references are integrated into works that assemble a diverse and unlikely range of materials. In Reverse is a comprehensive and focused reader on Wilkinson’s output and documents the Glasgow-based artist’s practice spanning from 2015 to 2010, including six exhibitions and works produced within that time period, in reversed chronological order.
