'Back in the early 1990s, the British art world changed forever thanks to a band of bright young things who weren’t afraid of controversy … 'Artrage!' details that blistering scene and looks at its place today'
It's Nice That
'An excellent primer on the rise and fall, successes and failures of a moment in British art. It catches the brio of the people involved, charts the connections that they forged; the friendships, the fall-outs, the partner swapping ... and celebrates the art they created'
'Mess-making is the subject of Elizabeth’s Fullerton’s riotous Artrage!: The Story of the BRITART Revolution, which documents the antics of the upstart provocateurs who aimed, as the Chapman brothers declared, to unsettle civilisation and mock the notion that art has a moral purpose'
Peter Conrad, Observer
'Her account of the rise and rise of the now not-so-young British artists is a well-written as well as a necessary book. Students, researchers and curators looking back in years to come will be grateful for a publication that goes beyond cheering and sneering to document that period of British art history, and document it well'
Farah Nayeri, Culture Writer for New York Times in London
'A sober account of an intoxicating time, but it is well researched and very readable …There is no escaping the fact that it has been the best 25 years in the history of British art'
'A vibrant account of how Hirst, Lucas, the Chapmans et al came to noisy prominence'
'Fullerton writes about contemporary art in an engaging, exciting and insightful way. The Young British Artists could not have asked for a better biographer'
Ed Voves, Art Eyewitness
'Fullerton is a former Reuters foreign correspondent and hasn’t forgotten how to tell a story. Her book is blessedly jargon-free and it does offer a clear account of the sequence of events that made up the YBA phenomenon'
