Abstract:

In this essay I use Richard Hamilton as an example of an artist who seems to fit all too readily into the category of neo-avant-garde. I argue, though, that Hamilton (and other artists who might be classified as part of the neo-avant-garde) might be more productively looked at in terms of 'post-avant-gardism'. I focus on Hamilton's interior paintings and collages produced between 1956 and 1964 and suggest that a 'post-avant-gardism' perspective wouldn't try and measure their power of intervention or their criticality, but would instead attend to their analytic descriptions of the contradictory environments of the post-war world.
