John Marriott


In his self-titled exhibition in Summer 1996, John Marriott investigated the way images are presented by various institutions – museums, the media, corporations – and what values are implicit in their presentation. In particular, his objects and images examine the ways power is manifested in the devices and forms of presentation we may not pay attention to. The information that such forms purvey invisibly substantiates institutions’ positions of power and assists in our taking their authority for granted. In this exhibition, Marriott wished to implicate all parties involved, from the artist to the curator to the spectator.

This 23-page softcover catalogue accompanied the exhibition and features images of Marriott’s work and an essay by curator Philip Monk.
