Art in the City: London by Tiddy Rowan
Book Description"London" and "Paris" are the first two titles in a unique new series of city guides focusing on modern and contemporary art - a genuine gap in the art and travel market. Never before has the contemporary art scene of each city been so comprehensively researched and presented. The guides follow a sound formula -each opens with an essay on the current contemporary art scene by a local art expert in that city, followed by an introduction which presents the art in the context of the city's history and geography to give the reader a feel for the places they might like to visit. The central portion of the books are a fact-packed,stunning, visual A-Z guide to 100 artists, each featuring a representative piece of that artist's work, with an expert commentary and details of everywhere their art can be seen in the city.The A-Z is cross-referenced throughout to the Directory,a comprehensive listing of public and private galleries, public art, art colleges, art tours and other sites where the art can be seen. These in turn are cross-referenced to the maps - one large map on the inside the front cover and ten close-up maps later in the book. The back inside cover has a transport map, making each guide not just inspirational and informative but also practical. Whether you are planning a weekend break, a longer trip or just want to get to know the contemporary art scene in your own city better this series has something for everyone.
