The last few decades have been among the most dynamic within recent British cultural history. Artists across all genres and media have developed and re-fashioned their practice against a radically changing social and cultural landscape - both national and global. This book takes a fresh look at some of the themes, ideas and directions which have informed British art since the later 1980s through to the first decade of the new millennium. In addition to discussing some iconic images and examples, it also looks more broadly at the contexts in which a new 'post-conceptual' generation of artists,…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
The last few decades have been among the most dynamic within recent British cultural history. Artists across all genres and media have developed and re-fashioned their practice against a radically changing social and cultural landscape - both national and global. This book takes a fresh look at some of the themes, ideas and directions which have informed British art since the later 1980s through to the first decade of the new millennium. In addition to discussing some iconic images and examples, it also looks more broadly at the contexts in which a new 'post-conceptual' generation of artists, those typically born since the late 1950s and 1960s have approached and developed aspects of their professional practice.a a Contemporary British Art is an ideal introduction to the field. To guide the reader, the book is organised around genres or related practices - painting; sculpture and installation; and film, video and performance. The first chapter explores aspects of the contemporary art market and some of the contexts within which art is made, supported and exhibited. The chapters that discuss various genres of art practice also mention books that may be useful to support further reading.Extensively illustrated with a wide range of work (both known, and less well-known) from artists such as Chris Ofili, Rachel Whiteread, Damien Hirst, Banksy, Anthony Gormley, Jack Vettriano, Sam Taylor-Wood, Steve McQueen and Tracey Emin, and many more.

Rezensionen
'A lucid and vibrant introduction to a pivotal three decades in British artistic and cultural history. This incisive and wide-ranging book provides a perceptive and illuminating framework for understanding the complexities of a rich and creative period within contemporary art.' - Dr Diana Newall, Research Fellow, The Open University 'Contemporary British Art is no mere survey but an informed, thought-provoking and skilfully crafted introduction to the last twenty or so years of creative endeavour. Clearly and accessibly written, it opens up an increasingly expanding and complex field of cultural production by expertly weaving insightful ideas and comment with a diverse range of examples, some of which are refreshingly unfamiliar.' - Dr Graham Whitham, Art Historian 'The art market is the subject of the first chapter, getting the book off to a strong start and connecting it to the recent trend in surveys of British art to contextualize and critique works of art primarily within an
