Abstract Vaudeville: The Work Of Rose English

£19.99

Product description

Rose English emerged from the Conceptual art, dance and feminist scenes of 1970s Britain to become one of the most internationally influential performance artists working today. This comprehensive exhibition catalog documents her 40-year career to date, including legendary site-specific performances and large-scale spectaculars. Her uniquely interdisciplinary work combines elements of theater, circus, opera and poetry to explore themes of gender politics, the identity of the performer and the metaphysics of presence. English has mounted performances on ice rinks; at the Royal Court Theatre and Tate Britain, London and Franklin Furnace, New York, collaborating with horses, magicians and acrobats. Accompanying many rare archival photographs and performance scripts, a major essay by art critic/curator Guy Brett surveys the artists work and times alongside interviews with two of English's closest collaborators, Sally Potter and Simon Vincenzi.

In very good condition.
