Gillian Wearing: Family History

Gillian Wearing: Family History
Library Shelf Location 18.WEAR
Publication Date 2007

A record of Gillian Wearing’s video installation ‘Family History’, this publication traces the development of this project in a visual style that draws out parallels between the 1970s and the present that are an explicit feature of the work itself. Continuing the biographical theme of the exhibition, the book brings together film stills and location photographs with other personal and archive material, and features essays by critic Paul Morley and project curator Steven Bode, alongside an ‘in conversation’ between Gillian Wearing and Stuart Comer.

Published by Film and Video Umbrella and Maureen Paley, in association with Artists in the City, Reading and Ikon Gallery, Birmingham. Publication supported by Arts Council England, with additional support from Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network.
