Overview

Artists At Work: artists in other occupations; creative approaches to a common reality by Mr Jason Haynes

Artists At Work;
artists in other occupations

This book focuses on artists who use secondary employment to influence their activity. Whether supplementary day jobs in call centres or placement opportunities bringing change to the work place. Potentially challenging, reflective or inspiring; these artists express different approaches in their disparate disciplines towards 'making a living'. The artists here represent a real diversity in today's working environments and concerns; from factory and office work to inner city schools an human rights issues. An ongoing narrative accompanies this, seeking to address thoughts on overlapping identities and roles whilst also aiming to offer a more personable and accessible read. Relevant comparisons with artists from the wider history of art is also reflected upon, in order to offer up alternative context in a common ground of understanding.
It analyses these approaches and seeks to understand the potential movements and boundaries for the artist in contemporary society.

Featuring over 20 artists of different backgrounds and approaches working today. This colour printed book features images and chapters concerning the subject of artists in work and the wider society. Using recent art histories and relevant theoretical frameworks to provide context.

This will interest artists and readers alike.
