What is status? And why do we need it? What makes the big names big: Porsche, Picasso, Pompidou? And where’s that cricket bat Viv Richards signed?

The answers to these questions may or may not be forthcoming in this, the companion piece to Namedropping—the exhibition originating from an idea dropped from on high by Daddy Walsh himself.

Published on the occasion of this great big, really good, really special exhibition, the catalogue features contributions from David Walsh, Luke Hortle, Jane Clark, Sarah Wallace and Emma Pike, as well as piccies galore of art from some of the biggest names in the artworld (to say nothing of the real world), including Anselm Kiefer, Cornelia Parker, Francis Bacon, Danh Vo, Chuck Close, Ai Weiwei, Marcel Duchamp, Charles Darwin, Lola Greeno, Henry Ottmann, Isaac Newton, Simon Denny, Sylvie Fleury, Tino Sehgal, Andy Warhol, Raoul Dufy, Jenny Holzer, Audrey Frost, Darren Sylvester, Guerrilla Girls, Wang Lei, Vincent Namatjira, Ned Kelly, Michael Zavros, Tom Sachs, Elizabeth Peyton, Romance Was Born, He Xiangyu, William Shakespeare, Taryn Simon, Chopper Read and many more. Plus stickers, and a pull-out poster of a hotted-up Torana.

Pre-order the book now and you'll get your copy when the exhibition opens in June.
