Milk and Melancholy by Kenneth Hayes

milkThe lavishly produced first book publication from Prefix gallery and magazine is an illuminating history of art in the 60s and 70s, tracing an iconography of milk and splashing liquids as they appear in the paintings of Ed Ruscha, the photography of Jeff Wall, and countless other photo-conceptualists. What initially seems to be an eccentric perspective, by cutting across flimsy periodisations and demonstrating the close contact between science and art actually presents a stunning record of the way in which artworks transform the banal into the profound. Prefix, $27.50
