Talking Art is an indispensable collection of the best of Art Monthly's interviews since the magazine's inception in the early seventies. It provides a supplementary history of twentieth-century art from over 150 perspectives through discussions between artists and critics. Many leading practitioners have been interviewed, often at highly significant moments in their careers. The interviews provide the most immediate access to an artist's thought processes and offer compelling narratives of the changing creative process. The artist interview has occupied an important position in Art Monthly since its first issue, and the book is published as part of the magazine's 30th anniversary celebrations.
