Transmitter Receiver The Persistence of Collage by Caroline Douglas, Kate Brindley

Transmitter/Receiver traces the uses of collage in British art from the first influences of the Parisian avant-garde, in the early work of Ben Nicholson and Surrealists Eileen Agar and Roland Penrose, through to present day practitioners such as Steve Claydon, David Noonan and Idris Khan. This book includes not only traditional collage on paper, but painting, sculpture, film and slide projections to explore ways in which the idea of collage has developed since the early twentieth century. Artists include: Eileen Agar, David Batchelor, Patrick Caulfield, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Steve Claydon, Richard Hamilton, Margaret Harrison, Susan Hiller, Idris Khan, Laurence Kavanagh, Linder, Camilla Low, Ben Nicholson, Chris Ofili, Eduardo Paolozzi, Toby Patterson, Roland Penrose, Grayson Perry, John Stezaker, Tony Swain, Armando Andrade Tudela and Martin Westwood.
