This solo exhibition catalogue features new commissions and recent works by the Australian artist, Shaun Gladwell.
Following on from the distinctive body of work that stemmed out of the artist’s personal engagement with youth street cultures, the new video and sculpture works explore creative aspects of urban sports, such as beatboxing and BMX riding, and their ability to re-author environments.
This fully illustrated publication offers a set of international perspectives in critical writing, an insightful conversation with the artist and a comprehensive list of key work with illustrations.
