This catalogue has been published to accompany a British Council exhibition touring to five venues throughout Canada. This exhibition explores new contemporary works by 14 influential artists whose principal focus is the human body. Emerging in the 1990s, the aggressive, in-your-face attitude of these artists united the forces of British youth culture, mass marketing, and high art.
