Artrage! - The Story of the BritArt Revolution
This book has been read and loved on our shop floor - it may have some wear and tear hence its sale price.
The Young British Artists (YBAs) stormed onto the contemporary art scene in 1988 with their attention-grabbing, confrontational art, exploding art-world conventions with brazen disdain.
Artrage! tells their raucous story, chronicling the group’s rise to prominence from the landmark show ‘Freeze’ curated by Damien Hirst, through the heyday of the 1990s and the notorious ‘Sensation’ exhibition, to the Momart fire of 2004 that seemed to symbolize the group’s fading from centre stage.
- Draws on some fifty exclusive interviews with key BritArt players, including Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Jake and Dinos Chapman and Sarah Lucas
- Features extensive archival research by art writer and critic Elizabeth Fullerton
