Weekly Perusables: Joy in People

New to the library is Jeremy Deller’s exhibition catalog Joy in People, which covers his artistic debut in 1993 (a secret exhibition in his parents’ house while they were away on vacation), up to 2012. Deller is a contemporary British artist, who makes unconventional work that doesn’t fit in with the mainstream gallery scene. He didn’t go to art school, yet won the Turner Prize in 2004. You can read reviews of the Joy in People exhibit here: Telegraph, Domus, Abitare, and find the book on our New Books shelf for the next month. Cheerio!
