Description

A landmark and vital survey of the work of Steve McQueen, one of the most important artists, film-makers and screenwriters working today.

Over the last 25 years Steve McQueen has been hugely influential in expanding the way in which artists work with film. He has also authored some of the most seminal works of moving image designed for gallery-based presentation, as well as four films for cinematic release, Hunger (2008), Shame (2010), 12 Years a Slave (2013) and Widows (2018).

This publication brings together the immersive video and film installations he has made since 2000, including large-scale video installations Caribs’ Leap/Western Deep (2002), as well as more recent films such as Ashes (200215). Featuring an in-depth interview between Steve McQueen and renowned curator Hamza Walker and essays that provide new insights into his work, this book reveals how McQueen’s pioneering approaches to filmmaking have expanded the ways in which artists work with the medium, creating unforgettable and poignant portraits of time and place.
