Art inSight

Understanding Art and Why It Matters

Fanchon Silberstein

This book delves into the first known art and explores what it can reveal about how its makers saw the world and how contemporary artists can help us to see our own. The result is equal parts an ode to the joy of artful engagement, a how-to for anyone interested in understanding art and culture and a journey around the world from prehistory to the present day.

Discounted price: £14.70 / £19.60

Drawing as a Way of Knowing in Art and Science

Gemma Anderson

In recent history, the arts and sciences have often been considered opposing fields of study, but a growing trend in drawing research is beginning to bridge this divide. This book introduces tested ways in which drawing as a research practice can enhance morphological insight, specifically within the natural sciences, mathematics and art.

Provoking the Field

International Perspectives on Visual Arts PhDs in Education

Queer Communion

Ron Athey

Edited by Amelia Jones and Andy Campbell

Ron Athey is one of the most important, prolific and influential performance artists of the past four decades.

Discounted price: £25.90 / $34.30


Contemporary Art Goes to School

Edited by Jennie Guy

In this collection of original essays, the writers engage with the work of the artists who took part in Art School, the independent curatorial framework based in Ireland. Each contribution provides a lens through which each writer can focus on specific moments within the evolution of Art School, working outwards to explore how these moments resonate with the wider fields of art-in-education and radical pedagogies.

Discounted price: £23.80 / $31.50

The Lure of the Social

Encounters with Contemporary Artists

Gretchen Coombs

 Artists increasingly find themselves working in participatory settings where skills in social engagement are as essential as their creative skills. Over the course of the book, readers are introduced to artists and their work, and to the key debates and issues facing this fast-growing and emergent field.

Discounted price: £23.80 / $31.50

An Affect of an Experience

And how I learnt to write about it in the context of fine art

Kate Love

Kate Love examines the concept of experience, as both content and as interpretative register in the context of fine art. It discusses the idea that writing can be understood as a practice like painting, sculpture, video, etc.

Discounted price: £56.00 / $74.55

The Politics of Migration and Mobility in the Art World

Transnational Baltic Artistic Practices across Europe

Emma Duester

This original new book explores how visual artists take part in regular cross-border mobilities, onward migrations and transnational communications across Europe for work and the effects of this on their feelings of home and belonging.
