Every five years the British Art Show takes the pulse of contemporary art in the UK. Curators Lydia Yee and Anna Colin have selected 42 exceptional artists whose work exemplifies the quality and dynamism of visual art being produced in Britain today.
In images, essays and a wealth of discussions with the artists themselves, British Art Show 8 explores their engagement with the material world at a time of increasing convergence between the real and virtual spheres.
British Art Show 8 will tour to venues in 2015–16 including: Leeds Art Gallery; Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Inverleith House, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and Talbot Rice Gallery, University of Edinburgh; Norwich University of the Arts, Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery; John Hansard Gallery, University of Southampton and Southampton City Art Gallery.
Artists include: Pablo Bronstein, Andrea Buttner, Simon Fujiwara, Martino Gamper, Ryan Gander, Linder, Laure Prouvost, Imogen Stidworthy, Hayley Tompkins, Jessica Warboys, Stuart Whipps, Bedwyr Williams, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
