From the Publisher. The fifth title in Black Dog Publishing's ARTWORLD series, this book showcases the wealth of contemporary art being produced in the United Kingdom today. Contemporary Art in the United Kingdom is a diverse, in-depth exploration of those at the cutting edge of British Art, providing a unique complexion of the contemporary art scene from all four corners of the British Isles. Over 50 of the region's most prolific artists are profiled, alongside images of a selection of their work some of which previously unseen including Tacita Dean, David Shrigley, Cornelia Parker, Paul Noble and Liam Gillick. The works are organised throughout the book in preference of medium and style corresponding with the previous books in the series in transcending geographical and regional preconceptions. The works featured are further contextualised in a specially commissioned introductory essay by writer and critic John Slyce, and in the book's appendix, where a number of texts by prolific writers, academics and artists, can be found.
