- Peter Cripps: art and other strategies
- Barnes, Carolyn
- The Australian art world of the late 1960s and 1970s, the period during which Peter Cripps attended art school and began to make art, was distinguished by the rapid development of the contemporary art system. Over a decade, a growing commercial gallery sector and the move of public galleries and government funding into recent art dissolved the former divisions between official and progressive art. These changes highlighted the controlling effects of art world institutions, denaturalising many artists' involvement in art and generating resistance. Artists' interest in aesthetics and self-expression gave way to critical engagement with cultural norms and social discourses, and the institutional values and processes through which objects and practices gain art status.
