Language: English

Pages: 344

ISBN: 1845116194

Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub


This is the first accessible survey book to explore the subject of memory as it appears in multiple guises in contemporary art. Highly readable and approached thematically, the book looks at both personal and public memory, dealing with art as autobiography, revisionist memory and   postmemory, the memory as trace and the archive. It also considers the role played by the museum and gallery in the construction of  history and  knowledge. Grounding her discussion in historical precedents, Gibbons explores the work of artists including Doris Salcedo, Keith Piper, Judy Chicago, Louise Bourgeois, Tracey Emin, Keith Piper, Christian Boltanski, Janet Cardiff, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Pierre Huyghe, Jeremy Deller, Susan Hiller, Japanese photographer Miyako Ishiuchi and new media artist George Legrady.
