Description

Sensation is the first definitive survey of work by the younger generation of British artists that has captivated the international art world with its vitality and inventiveness. Sensation features the work of forty-two of the most exciting and radical artists working in Britain today. Many of them—such as Jenny Saville, Rachel Whiteread, or Jake & Dinos Chapman—are already internationally acclaimed; others are destined to be. The book’s original and penetrating essays include the critical context of their work and trace the phenomenon of the British art scene since “Freeze,” the 1988 exhibition that is now recognized as a defining moment in the story of British art. Cutting through tabloid headlines, controversial press coverage, and art-world debate, Sensation reveals the achievements of young British artists and the role played by courageous and imaginative patronage.
