More About the Author

Lisa Le Feuvre is a curator, writer, editor and public speaker.

Since November 2010 Le Feuvre has led the Henry Moore Institute, a centre for the study of sculpture, as Head of Sculpture Studies. Setting out to expand the understanding and scholarship of historical and contemporary sculpture, the organisation presents a year-round programme of exhibitions, conferences and lectures, as well as developing research, collections and publications. The Institute is a part of The Henry Moore Foundation, which was set up by Moore in 1977 to encourage appreciation of the visual arts, especially sculpture. The Institute's role within The Foundation is to place sculpture right at the centre of the writing of art history.

Her curated exhibitions at the Institute include 'Katrina Palmer: The Necropolitan Line', 'Paul Neagu: Palpable Sculpture', 'Gego:Line as Object', 'Sarah Lucas: Ordinary Things'​, 'The Event Sculpture'​ and 'Robert Filliou: The Institute of Endless Possibilities'​. Between 2005 and 2009 Le Feuvre directed the contemporary art programme at the National Maritime Museum, working with artists including Lawrence Weiner, Esther Shalev-Gerz and Renee Green.

Her independent curatorial projects include 'British Art Show 7: in the Days of the Comet', the seventh iteration of the quinquennial survey of art made in Britain (with Tom Morton). She regularly contributes to journals, publications and exhibition catalogues, as well to academia. Editorial work includes the Henry Moore Institute's journal 'Essays on Sculpture,' the MIT Press compilation 'Failure'​ in the Whitechapel Art Gallery's 'Documents on Contemporary Art'​ series and the second issue of 'NOIT,'​ the journal of John Latham's Flat Time House, on the topic of burning. In 2014-15 she has written on artists that include Lara Favaretto, Thomas Houseago, Ian Kiaer, Bruce McLean and Virginia Overton and on her obsession, failure.

'Priceless...some truly memorable and far-reaching images, pictures that clearly live up to the collection's rather grand title.' -- Big Issue, May 15, 2006

Format: Hardcover
This is a great book but it's more about the events that changed the world, not the photos. Many of the photos are just selected from many that would have been appropriate and are not necessarily great photos in themselves. Amongst notable exceptions are the napalm child in Vietnam. Still well worth owning.

Once I peaked through this book to see what is was about, I couldn't put it back down, It's amazing, all the pictures and facts of what has happened around the world. It's truly a great book to have. I do recommend having this book, though hardback would have been better.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in reading. My brother loves reading every little plaque of information when he goes to a museum or exhibition and he loves this book. Some of the pictures are awful and saddening to look at, but it is worth a look.

Great book, really interesting.
Have to say I haven't picked it up much since initially looking through it, though it's a great tabletop book.
