Quotes:The poor English artists getting nearer and nearer to us now only did a pleasing decorative, sympathetic, but not aggressively innovative type of flat abstract painting, using masking tape. They were influenced by Matisse, who said he wanted art to be like a comfortable armchair for a tired businessman to rest in. Julian Schnabel was the first monster superbrat of the 80s artworld, model for Koons and Hirst later.In hirst's "gambler" warehouse show, he showed first cowhead flies: a hundre [...]

a bit strange compilation of ideas and notes and photos of various artwork but overall it gives a nice and easy feel and approach to art, so I liked it, as it seemeeddifferent to most other art books I have read, in which the authors are trying to be (well in reality some are) terribly clever in this book the author only tries to show that he was everywhere but seriously, a good quick read, loads of photos of artwork from the time, a few insider stories, and does leave you with an overall impres [...]

Collings gives the reader a genial tour of British art from Bacon to Hirst. I have always enjoyed Matthew Collings tv shows about art and his books are great too. He brings a flippant, witty, slacker attitude towards the art world, which makes his books much funnier and more readable than most art writing. However, he also knows his stuff and a lot of it can be read on several levels. You don't need to know much about art or postmodern theory to enjoy it, but if you do know a bit about it you wi [...]

A rambling and meaningless account about this artist's experience with the 90's art scene. I bought this thinking I'd get a lesson on why the art trend in the 90's was considered art in the first place, and instead got a book with photos of old naked men framed in by turds, an artless photo of an old man's dangling genitalia, and accounts of last minute shows thrown together with cardboard signs in abandoned warehouses by talentless hacks. Blimey is right.

Bitchy, gossipy, and thoroughly entertaining look at the London art scene through its 90s boom. The critical insights are scattershot at best, but Collings voice is winning throughout. Think of it as a good extended magazine piece. Nice pictures, too.

I like this one a little more than IT HURTS. The British art scene in the 90's was pretty great. It even talks about Billy Childish.

Highly readable survey of British contemporary art. Discussion of galleries at end seemed irrelevant (and is probably dated by now).
