Social Sculpture explains the phenomenon described by the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist as 'The Glasgow Miracle' through detailed analysis of the city's predominantly self-organised and autonomous arts infrastructure and interviews with the people who made it happen. This fully revised and updated edition of the first and only book to chart the emergence of the Glasgow art scene draws upon over 60 original interviews with Glasgow writers, curators, artists and musicians, including Turner Prize winners Douglas Gordon, Richard Wright and Martin Boyce and Turner Prize nominees Christine Borland, Cathy Wilkes and Luke Fowler, curators Will Bradley, Katrina Brown, Charles Esche and Toby Webster and musicians Stuart Braithewaite (Mogwai), Aidan Moffat (Arab Strap) and Optimo DJ Keith McIvor.

Product Description:

Sarah Lowndes looks back at the rise of the Glasgow art scene through the decades, from community art to Thatcher, New Wave to Teenage Fanclub. Charting the emergence of performance and conceptual-related art, she looks at the background from which the art of the last 40 years emerged, the social atmosphere which was able to influence artists, musicians and writers who would go on to be known worldwide.

Review:

Lowndes has created a veritable bible... a fascinating social history. --Moira Jeffrey, The Herald

Perceptively attuned to the aesthetics idiosyncratic to Glasgow. --Neil Mulholland, Frieze

... a fascinating study of the music and visual scene in Glasgow. --Sukhdev Saandhli, The New Satesman
