Art London; A Guide to Places, Events and Artists
Prodigies, revolutionaries, defiers of the patriarchy; drunks, rebels and impassioned immigrants; queer pioneers, paint-spattered punks and proto-feminists: London has never been short of artists. Some were celebrated in their lifetime, others were too contrary with the spirit of their age: too radical, too subversive, too modest, too female, too foreign.
Art London is more than a guidebook. It will take you on a journey through this great city, uncovering histories, sharing insights into those who have made, collected and influenced art, both past and present.
Going neighbourhood by neighbourhood, Art London travels the streets with you, revealing art in museums, galleries and more, from palace to pub to studio. Anish Kapoor, Grayson Perry, Mona Hatoum and Tracey Emin were amongst the artists who agreed to have their portraits taken for this book, while at work in their studios.
Alex Schneiderman's exclusive photographs reveal the human element behind contemporary art, while pictures of streetside galleries place London's art scene within an ever-expanding cosmopolitan world. Fascinating, entertaining, full of anecdote and insights, Art London reflects the city itself: energetic, diverse, resilient, occasionally outrageous, and never short of fresh ideas.
