'Remarkably encyclopaedic ... as thorough a primer in body-centered art as possible in one volume ... [Warr] ... interrelates works with wit and intelligence ... It's a journey that is crucially informative and as stimulating for the reader as it is celebratory.' (Contemporary) 'A fabulous book ... you should go out and buy it immediately ... Warr and Jones have succeeded in imposing some kind of sensible order on the unruly conjunction of art and the body ... Richly illustrated with great graphics and a comprehensive collection of essays by key writers on the subject, The Artist's Body is a snip at the price and a must have for anyone interested in contemporary art.' (Exhibit: A) 'Not just useful and instructive, but thought-provoking too.' (Art Monthly)From the Publisher:
Subject and object of artists' work, the artist's body represents the state of contemporary art and makes a wider comment on the human condition. Bound or beaten, naked or painted, still or spasmodic: the artist lives his or her art publicly in performance or privately in video and photography; these records form the Works section. Amelia Jones's survey examines the most significant works in the context of social history and Tracey Warr's selection of documents combines writings by artists, critics and philosophers.
