English emerged from the Conceptual art, dance and feminist scenes of 1970s Britain to become one of the most influential performance artists working today.

 

Abstract Vaudeville documents English’s 40-year career to date, including legendary site-specific performances and large-scale spectaculars. Accompanying many rare archival photographs and performance scripts, a major essay by Guy Brett surveys the artist’s work and times alongside interviews with two of English's closest collaborators, Sally Potter and Simon Vincenzi. 

 

Contained within a custom-made slipcase, the edition includes the black-and-white silver gelatin print Rose and Athene Riding Porcelain Horses  (1974 [2015]), which is signed and hand-finished by English.
