Creamy PsychologyYvonne Todd
Creamy Psychology surveys artist Yvonne Todd’s work since the late 1990s, including her recent Gilbert Melrose project (for which Todd printed the photographs taken by her second cousin in 1957) and her latest photographic series Ethical Minorities (Vegans). It contains new essays by Todd herself, Robert Leonard (on Todd and cults), Misha Kavka (on Todd and daytime TV), Claire Regnault (on Todd the costume fetishist), Megan Dunn (on Todd, Karen Carpenter, and anorexia), and Anthony Byrt (on Todd’s Gilbert Melrose project). It also contains an archival section with earlier essays, including key pieces by Leonard, Dunn, Justin Paton, and Justin Clemens.
Comprehensively illustrated, Creamy Psychology is the new go-to book on Yvonne Todd. It accompanied a major show at City Gallery Wellington.
