The opening of the ‘Sensation’ exhibition at the Royal Academy in the late 1990s caused a public furore and a media frenzy, with both broadsheet and tabloid journalists falling over themselves to comment on the show’s controversial images, and unprecedented crowds queuing up to see for themselves what all the fuss was about.
This catalogue of that seminal exhibition features the work of over forty artists including Turner prize winners Damien Hirst, Gillian Wearing and Rachel Whiteread, as well as penetrating essays by Norman Rosenthal, Lisa Jardine, critics Richard Shone and Brook Adams and painter and critic Martin Maloney, who survey a decade of creative explosion. This special edition of the book that rocked the art world, features a new jacket created by Mark Wallinger.
