Book Description

30 Nov 2012
In this illuminating collection of new interviews, some of the most important women artists practising in Britain today talk about their work, their influences and their relationships, sometimes ambivalent, with the art historical canon. Enlightening and frequently entertaining, the interviews, with artists spanning different generations and working in media as diverse as performance art, painting, sculpture, video and installation, give fascinating first-hand insights into both the artists' lives and the creative process. Fortnum speaks to: Tacita Dean, Tanya Kovats, Christine Borland, Jane Harris, Vanessa Jackson, Tracey Emin, Maria Lalic, Hayley Newman, Sonia Boyce, Emma Kay, Gillian Ayres, Lucy Gunning, Claire Barclay, Maria Chevska, Anya Gallacio, Jemima Stehli, Runa Islam and Paula Rego.

5.0 out of 5 stars Women Rock! 4 May 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A really interesting and insightful book full of information. Not a stuffy book in any way, more a feeling of eaves dropping on some of the most amazing contemporary, women artists. An informative and easy read. It feels like a low budget production though and would have been improved by the inclusion of more images, especially in colour. Any chance of another volume Rebecca?
