Prodigies, revolutionaries, defiers of the patriarchy; drunks, rebels and impassioned immigrants; queer pioneers, paint-spattered punks and proto-feminists: there have always been artists in London. Some were celebrated in their lifetime, others were out-of-step with the spirit of their age: too radical, too subversive, too modest, too female, too foreign. Art London is more than a guidebook. It will accompany you on a journey through this great city, telling stories, uncovering histories, sharing insights into those who have made, collected and influenced art past and present. Moving neighbourhood by neighbourhood, Art London travels the streets with you, revealing art in museums, galleries and beyond, from palace to pub to studio. Anish Kapoor, Grayson Perry, Mona Hatoum, John Akomfra, Rasheed Araeen, Sunil Gupta, Tracey Emin and Yinka Shonibare were among the artists who agreed to have their portraits taken for this book, while at work in their studios. Alex Schneiderman's exclusive photographs reveal the human element behind contemporary art, while pictures of streetside galleries place London's art scene within an ever-expanding cosmopolitan world. Fascinating, entertaining, full of anecdote and insights, Art London reflects the city itself: energetic, diverse, resilient, occasionally outrageous, and never short of fresh ideas.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Art London: A Guide to Places, Artists And Events is an indispensable volume for both art-world insiders familiar with the city and those who are new to it" - artnet news; "I love that you can stand in Mason's Yard where White Cube now is and know it is where Lennon and Ono first met. I wanted to capture London's layers of history, which go back hundreds of years." - Hettie Judah. "What really separates this from just a guidebook, however, is the inclusion of potted histories of art figures or movements that have shaped the artistic life of an area."-- V & A Winter 2019 Magazine
