Summary note:
"Screen Presence' explores the intersections of film, popular media, and art since the 1950s through the examples of four pivotal figures - Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Mona Hatoum and Douglas Gordon. While their film-related works may appear primarily as challenges to conventional cinema, these artists draw on overlooked forms of popular film culture that have been commonplace, and even dominant, in specific social contexts. Through a range of new sources, including advertisements, specialty magazines, postcards, technical guides and souvenir programs, Stephen Monteiro demonstrates the dependence of contemporary artists on cinema's shifting applications and interpretations, offering a fresh understanding of the enduring impact of everyday media on how we make and view art"-- Provided by publisher.
