COMING SOON: Rack ‘em up: a YBA Editions Exhibition: Hirst, Lucas, Turk, Coventry, Chapman, Landy, Wearing and More!
Rack ‘em up: British Contemporary Editions, 1990 – 2000 focusses on editions produced by the so-called YBA generation of artists. The survey, the first of its kind ever staged, brings together works by all of the leading figures of the period, including Keith Coventry, Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas and Gavin Turk, and seeks to capture the irreverent and exuberant flavour of the era.
Many artists have experimented with painting and drawing machines: Jean Tinguely, Rebecca Horn, Richard Jackson and Angela Bulloch come to mind. On the other hand, Robert Rauschenberg’s ‘Erased de Kooning’ is a seminal piece of hard manual labour.
Every Monday Tabish Khan brings you five exhibitions that you should visit during the week. Each one comes with a concise review to help you decide whether its for you.
