Jeremy Deller

Joy in People

Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller has been a hugely influential figure in the story of British art over the past two decades, helping to rewrite the rules of contemporary artistic practice.

This comprehensive catalogue is published on the occasion of Deller’s first major survey exhibition, staged at London’s Hayward Gallery (22 February – 13 May 2012).

With essays by esteemed cultural theorist Stuart Hall, music historian Rob Young and Hayward Gallery’s Ralph Rugoff, alongside fascinating conversation between Deller and artist Matthew Higgs, this beautifully finished casebound book is the first complete survey of the artist’s multi-faceted practice, in which he explores compelling social and cultural territories while alternately taking on the roles of artistic producer, publisher, filmmaker, collaborator, curator, parade organiser and cultural activist.

Published on the occasion of Jeremy Deller’s survey exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, London, this is the first book to cover the career of this important British artist.
