Colonisation in Reverse: Jean-Léon Destiné – Exhibition Catalogue

This publication complements and expands upon the exhibition Colonisation in Reverse: Jean-Léon Destiné with photographs and archival materials that bring Destiné’s rich and colourful career to life.

“Destiné was a purist. Destiné did not want to dilute his technique. He didn’t want to misinterpret or not be able to resource the origin of a movement… But what he did more importantly was to recognise the political climate in which work was being created, staged and promoted.”
