‘Talking to artists is like embarking on voyages of discovery…’

This book contains interviews with leading British artists by one of the UK’s most distinguished art writers, Richard Cork, collected together in one volume for the first time. It provides Insight into the working methods of Britain’s great contemporary artists, and the stories behind some of their most famous works

This collection of revealing conversations brings together for the first time interviews first recorded for BBC radio and as live events which feature the pantheon of contemporary British artists, from Richard Hamilton and David Hockney to Grayson Perry and Tacita Dean. Whether drawing out Francis Bacon’s musings on the afterlife, or the story behind Tracy Emin’s My Bed, Cork is an insightful and sympathetic interviewer.

Richard Cork is an award-winning art critic, historian, broadcaster and curator. He served as Art Critic of the Evening Standard and then Chief Art Critic of the Times as well as Editor of Studio International. Cork was Slade Professor of Fine Art at Cambridge University in 1989–90, and Henry Moore Senior Fellow at the Courtauld Institute, 1992–5. He has acted as a judge for the Turner Prize and curated major exhibitions at Tate, the Hayward Gallery, the Barbican Art Gallery, the Royal Academy and other European venues. He was appointed an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Academy in 2011 and broadcasts regularly on radio and TV.
