This popular collection of the best of Art Monthly's interviews since the magazine's inception in the early 1970s provides a supplementary history of twentieth-century art, from over 150 perspectives, through discussions between artists and critics.


The interviews provide the most immediate access to an artist's thought processes and offer compelling narratives of changing creative activities. Many leading practitioners – from Naum Gabo to Douglas Gordon – have been interviewed, often at highly significant moments in their careers. 


The artist interview has occupied an important position in Art Monthly since its first issue, and the book was first published as part of the magazine's 30th anniversary celebrations in 2007.
