Publisher Note

In the mid-1970’s, Matt Mullican developed a unique artistic language based on pictograms, diagrams and cosmological models. In reaction to conceptual art, this return to the image made the American artist one of the represantatives of the Picture Generation. Alongside these symbols placed on various supports (sheets, books, stained glass, etc.), his performances under hypnosis give expression to that person, an emblematic, even caricatural human figure. In 2018, Matt Mullican created representing the work, an installation mosaic of 64 iconographic illustrations that catalogue the principal chapters of his work.
