Formatted abstract
‘John Nixon: A Communist Artist’, examined the work of Melbourne-based abstract artist John Nixon, who has been the subject of much discussion over the past twenty years. Nixon has been lauded for continuing the radical experiments of Russian constructivism, criticised for not being truly experimental, and positioned as continuing an avant-garde tradition that somehow brings together the monochrome and the readymade.

Rex Butler reads Nixon’s work through the writings of art critic Boris Groys to suggest that it is—of all things—communist.
