DESCRIPTION

City Racing 1988-98 – ten years of an artists run gallery in London. How five cash-strapped artists developed a squat into a locally and internationally known gallery giving artists access to an independently run but publicly funded project space. City Racing 1988-98 provides a reflection and overview of the period and the programme through collective history, personal recollection, visual and written documentation. Sarah Lucas, Matt Collishaw, Graham Gussin, Fiona Banner, Gillian Wearing, Adam Chodzko are amongst the many artists featured in the book. City Racing was an artist-run space in Kennington, South London which was active between 1988 and 1998. It was a cooperative by five artists Matt Hale, Paul Noble, John Burgess, Keith Coventry and Peter Owen. They set up the gallery in a former betting shop near the Oval cricket ground, hence the derivation of the gallery name. City Racing became an important and renowned exhibition space; its openings provided a networking opportunity for many artists.
