Top Customer Reviews
This book is vital if you're interested in the recent history of glasgow's art production but it has a broader appeal too for anyone interested in the ways in which small events accumulate into something important whether in music, art or contemporary inner city life. It puts most art histories to shame by focusing democratically on a broad spread of artists rather than reheat a tired version of 'landmark events'.
