Over the past two decades, Jeremy Deller (b. 1966, London; lives in London) has redefined the rules of contemporary art and become a profound influence on artists emerging today. This beautifully finished hardback, published on the occasion of Jeremy Deller’s first major survey exhibition, is the first book to cover the career of this important artist. With essays by cultural theorist Stuart Hall, music historian Rob Young and Hayward Gallery’s Ralph Rugoff, a conversation between Deller and curator Matthew Higgs, and a focus piece by the artist’s mother, this book fully records the artist’s multi-faceted practice, as artistic producer, publisher, filmmaker, collaborator, curator, parade organizer and cultural archivist.
Exhibition dates: February 1–April 28, 2013.
