"Remarkably encyclopaedic... As thorough a primer in body-centered art as possible in one volume [Warr]... Interrelates works with wit and intelligence... It's a journey that is crucially informative and as stimulating for the reader as it is celebratory."-Contemporary
"A fabulous book... You should go out and buy it immediately... Warr and Jones have succeeded in imposing some kind of sensible order on the unruly conjunction of art and the body... Richly illustrated with great graphics and a comprehensive collection of essays by key writers on the subject, The Artist's Body is a snip at the price and a must have for anyone interested in contemporary art."-Exhibit: A
