Fortnum, Rebecca (2006) Contemporary British Women Artists: In Their Own Words. IB Tauris. ISBN 1845112245
|Type of Research:||Book|
'Contemporary British Women Artists: In their own words' features a series of interviews. It presents an in-depth study documenting an important and influential sample of contemporary British women artists' thought. Each artist’s interview was edited in a formal collaboration between interviewer/editor and artist.
Rebecca Fortnum's introduction to the book reflected on the interviews themselves, drawing out issues of the artist’s influences and processes, as well as outlining the status contemporary women artists currently hold in the UK today. In addition to the interviews, the book is illustrated with a new body of work - a series of black and white photographic portraits Fortnum has taken of the artists.
The 20 women included in the book all are internationally recognised artists, selected to represent a diversity of practice and age. They included: Tacita Dean, Jane Harris, Maria Chevska, Gillian Ayres, Vanessa Jackson, Maria Lalic, Hayley Newman, Sonia Boyce, Anya Gallaccio, Paula Rego, Lucy Gunning, Christine Borland, Claire Barclay, Tania Kovats, Jemima Stehli, Emma Kay, Tomoko Takahashi, Tracey Emin, Jananne Al-Ani and Runa Islam.
