ARTRAGE! THE STORY OF THE BRITART REVOLUTION. Elizabeth Fullerton. Thames and Hudson Ltd, London, 2016. Published in the U.S.A. by Thames and Hudson Inc., New York. 288 pp. with 180 ills. (145 col.). 25 x 19 cm. LC 2015-941291 ISBN 9780500239445 In English.
Publisher's description: BritArt tells the story of the YBAs, chronicling the group's rise to prominence from the landmark show Freeze curated by Damien Hirst in the late 1980s, through the heyday of the 1990s and the notorious Sensation exhibition, to the Momart fire of 2004 that seemed to symbolize the group's fade from center stage. A postscript reveals where they are now, with an overview of each artist's career in the last decade. Drawing on interviews with all the key Brit Art players, as well as extensive archival research, Elizabeth Fullerton examines the entire cast of characters, as well as crucial events and seminal artworks. She considers, too, the political, economic, and artistic context of those twenty years the group was most active. Among the artists discussed are Damien Hirst, Rachel Whiteread, Tracey Emin, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Sarah Lucas, and Gary Hume.
