Art from Elsewhere: International Contemporary Art from UK Galleries
  Zoom

Curator David Elliott selects works from the new acquisitions of five British museums, investigating the international art that is being acquired and integrated into British collections over the last five years.

Our Price:  £20.00

In this new publication accompanying the latest Hayward Touring exhibition, supported by the Art Fund, curator David Elliott brings together a personal selection of recently acquired international works that have transformed public art collections across the UK.

The 70 works featured are drawn from museums and galleries in five regions that were awarded significant grants under the Art Fund International scheme to purchase contemporary works by major international artists over a period of five years. Art from Elsewhere presents an array of works on paper, video, sculpture, painting and photography, reflecting on the realities of global change and the post-colonial experience, examining questions of trade and exchange, urban and international migration, frontiers and failed utopias. 

Including an in-depth essay by David Elliott as well as commentaries on each of the selected artists, Art from Elsewhere offers an insightful introduction to the richness of international contemporary art being acquired in Britain today.

Artists featured in this publication are Ai Weiwei, Shirin Aliabadi, Carl Andre, Stephen Antonakos, Yto Barrada, Yael Bartana, Lothar Baumgarten, Mohamed Bourouissa, Robert Breer, Paulo Bruscky, Nathan Carter, Thomas Demand, Eugenio Dittborn, Omer Fast, Meschac Gaba, Shilpa Gupta, Romuald Hazoumè, Michael Heizer, Peter Hujar, Emily Jacir, Jitish Kallat, Amar Kanwar, Ola Kolehmainen, Barbara Kruger, Ana Mendieta, Aleksandra Mir, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Imran Qureshi, Jozef Robakowski, Shahzia Sikander, Robert Smithson, Nancy Spero, Beat Streuli, Kara Walker, Yang Zhenzhong, YeeSookyung, Akram Zaatari and Horacio Zabala.
