After a decade of art revolving around sensation and celebrity, New Art from London identifies the emergence of a more mature and motivated strain of artists. Although far from being a coherent generation of tyros with a manifesto, their work suggests, along with irony, wit and intelligence, a new sense of seriousness about art in Britain. Taking readers to the heart of British contemporary visual culture, this incisive and provocative survey will be essential reading for anyone involved or interested in art and its relationship to everyday life.
