About this title


The collected writings of British artist, writer and curator Jon Thompson come together in this volume. As a teacher of artists at Goldsmiths, Thompson is credited as one of the most influential of his generation, a key promoter of the so-called Young British Artists of the 1990s, including Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin. Leaving the minimalists behind by the late 1970s as he wrote about more politically and socially connected artists, Thompson's careful research, historical knowledge and insight into an artist's work was quickly recognized as fresh and exciting. This is a long-overdue anthology of Thompson's commentary, which has been published in exhibition catalogues for the Hayward Gallery and Serpentine Gallery as well as numerous art magazines and journals.
