Funny Weather Art in an Emergency – Olivia Laing
In this inspiring collection of essays, prize-winning writer and critic Olivia Laing makes a brilliant case for why art matters, particularly in the turbulent political weather of the twenty-first century.
She examines art and culture and their roles in our political and emotional lives. Via profiles of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Georgia O’Keeffe, interviews with Hilary Mantel and Ali Smith and love letters penned to David Bowie and Wolfgang Tillmans she explores many of the subjects that concern them and us: technology, loneliness, sex and the body.
