At first when I saw this piece called ‘Shuffle’ I thought it was a recent piece that celebrated mixtape covers but then I realized they were old decorated FM radios and I learned that the piece was created in 1967 by Wallace Berman. It still seems very contemporary forty years on.
Berman, who died in 1976, is considered to be the father of California Assemblage Art Movement. There’s an exhibition of his work at Camden Arts Centre – might we worth a look.
