 A monograph on an artist/architect who paved the way for modern conceptual artists - Contains examples of Petherbridge's best work - Accompanies a retrospective exhibition at the Whitworth Art Gallery Since the 1960s, Deanna Petherbridge's practice has moved between making drawings and writing critically about art and architecture. She has designed murals and stage-sets, curated exhibitions, taught in the studio and lectured internationally - a career trajectory that has anticipated the multiple practices of younger conceptual artists. Drawing is her primary concern, both as an artist and as a historian of practice. Her book, The Primacy of Drawing: Histories and Theories of Practice is the preeminent study in the field; and her drawings are to be found in many major collections. This new monograph, published to coincide with a retrospective at the Whitworth Art Gallery, celebrates the vitality and originality of an extraordinary body of work.
