‘Anne Bean: Self Etc’ – book launch

15 November 2018 

England & Co hosted a celebration and book launch (in liaison with Live Art Development Agency) at the Swedenbourg Hall in Bloomsbury to mark the publication of Anne Bean: Self Etc.

This publication is a substantial survey bringing together documentation of Anne Bean’s performances, drawings, videos, installations, and sculptures, together with her writings, interviews and visual essays. The book, designed by David Caines, includes extensive visual documentation of Bean’s performances; essays by and interviews with Anne Bean, Guy Brett, Dominic Johnson, Poshya Kakl, Rob La Frenais, Lynn MacRitchie, Ezra Rubenstein, and Richard Wilson; and a series of new visual essays by the artist. The book explores and expands the nature, form and contexts that artistic collaboration can take, and is the sixth in the Intellect Live book series, which is is a collaboration between Intellect Books and the Live Art Development Agency. Another launch event and film screening was held the following week at LADA’s headquarters in Bethnal Green.
