"In the history of post-war art, the impact of psychedelia has planted a fertile wellspring of references and tropes into our cultural ecology. Its iconography of excess has permeated popular culture through album covers and posters, while advertising and music videos appropriated it as short hand for a stylised form of ecstasy that has been integrated into capitalism's promises of transcendence through consumption. In popular culture, this instantly recognisable visual style has been reduced to endlessly recycled nostalgic clichés divorced from the liminal states of perception to which they had once referenced. Yet the promise of the psychedelic imagination for cultural resistance and personal transcendence remains potent – it continues to have an uncanny, slippery ability to implant its spores into the art world."
