British Art Show 6

Occurring every five years, the British Art Show is the most ambitious survey exhibition of new and recent art from the UK. "British Art Show 6" reflects the vitality and diversity of Britain's art scene, particularly its increasing internationalism. Published on the occasion of the exhibition, this book brings together the work of 50 artists and artist groups living and working in Britain. It includes an introduction by curators Alex Farquharson and Andrea Schlieker, illustrated texts on each of the artists, and three round table discussions with artists on some of the exhibition's key thematic areas: the reactivation of eclectic aspects of 19th and 20th century avant-gardes; geopolitics and the experience of conflict, travel and migration; and collaborative projects with communities and organisations outside art institutions.
