Tastemakers Summary

Tastemakers by Rosie Millard

In this irreverent, gossipy, questioning and amazingly well-informed inside story, BBC Arts Correspondent, Rosie Millard, identifies The Tastemakers, the cultural movers and shakers - artists, dealers, curators, art teachers, entrepreneurs - who have made visual art the culture of choice in Britain today. Over a hundred of these people speak to her frankly about how they pulled off the impossible trick of effectively changing taste. They range from Gavin Turk and Mark Wallinger to Nick Serota, Michael Craig-Martin and Jay Jopling, and from the head of Selfridges to the inventor of 'Changing Rooms', revealing the impact of the visual arts revolution on a much wider stage. This network of links and influences is itself given creative expression in artist Adam Dant's foldout, The Mystery of British Culture, while the participants are photographed making art, or making waves - sometimes both - by Geraint Lewis.

Tastemakers Reviews

'A lot more than the Berlin Wall has collapsed since 1989. The landscape that you and I were brought up with, where there was subsidized art here, and commercial art there, where art was one place and rock and roll was another place, and film was something else, has collapsed. We live after an earthquake, which was the collapse of these categories. They collapsed because finally they bore next to no relation to the life that most of us live' - Philip Dodd, ICA
