Artist Boss: Anthony Caro’s Studio Assistants and Issues of Legacy in British Sculpture
ARTIST BOSS is the first and only extended engagement with prolific sculptor Sir Anthony Caro (1924-2013) – regarded as the ‘greatest of his generation’ – and his studio assistants. It raises questions concerning the status of production, originality, authenticity, and authorship within the tradition of twentieth-century British sculpture.
Lavishly illustrated, with a series of interviews with Anthony Caro’s studio assistants and critical essays, it inquires into the role of artists’ assistants, exploring the different ways in which the evolution of sculptural language has been negotiated. This book ran in tandem with a series of exhibitions across the UK in 2016-17. Visit http://artistboss.org.uk
