The Artist is Superfluous? Books and Art

Rockery plant

A book reviewed in the Royal Academy magazine No. 119 Summer 2013 'Biennials and Beyond: Exhibitions That Made Art History 1962-2002' charts the progression of art in the past fifty years to the point where (to quote the art critic of the New Yorker) ' the artist is superfluous'. This book is the second in a series by Phaidon that starts in volume one with the Salon des Refuses in Paris in 1863.

At the V&A, an exhibition entitled Memory Palace celebrates the narrative world of author Hari Kunzru, visualized by a series of commissions by internationally acclaimed illustrators, graphic designers and typographers.

Here in Annandale and Eskdale, we are asked to contribute Sept 6-9 to Dumfries and Galloway's Environmental Art Festival that runs from June to October this year. Any ideas?
