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.
With essays by esteemed cultural theorist Stuart Hall, music historian Rob Young and Hayward Gallery's Director 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 organizer and cultural activist.
Published on the occasion of Jeremy Deller's first major survey exhibition, staged at London's Hayward Gallery (22 February – 13 May 2012), Jeremy Deller: Joy in People is the first comprehensive publication to cover the career of this indispensable British artist.
