Gavin Turk | art & career
The British artist, who caught Charles Saatchi's eye after his Royal College of Art degree show Cave which filled a whitewashed studio with a single blue heritage plaque reading 'Gavin Turk worked here 1989-91', is best known as Tracey Emin and Damien Hirst's contemporary in the Sensations 1997 show. The Gavin Turk Somerset House installation, a neon sign illuminating the gorgeous neo-classical building has been causing a stir this year, but we best know Turk for unpicking the role of the artist and the idea of authorship in his modernist work.
Uncover the myth of the artist with one of Britian's most provocative contemporary artists Gavin Turk this June. No need to book, but we recommend getting there in advance to snag a good seat.
