Gabriel Gee Publishes New Book: Art in the North of England 1979-2008
Professor Gabriel Gee has had a long-term interest in British contemporary art. He began researching for Art in the North of England, 1979-2008 as part of his 2008 doctoral dissertation at the Université Paris X, France, and always intended to publish a version in English. The ideas developed in his dissertation matured over the following years, fuelling a new work, which is not a mere translation but an expansion of the initial text. Each chapter opens with an in-depth discussion of a specific artwork that unfolds into a reflection on the broader artistic landscapes of northern England.
