Glenn Brown: We’ll Keep On Dancing Till We Pay the Rent

Featuring an interview with curator Massimiliano Gioni and an essay by novelist Andrew Winer, this beautifully illustrated catalog documents virtuosic new work by British artist Glenn Brown.

Published to accompany a 2022 exhibition in New York, We’ll Keep On Dancing Till We Pay the Rent showcases recent paintings, drawings, and sculptures in Glenn Brown’s inimitable style. These seventeen works, most never before seen in print, abound with references to art history as well as music, film, and other cultural forms. An interview with curator Massimiliano Gioni and an essay by novelist Andrew Winer reveal the inspiration and process of the Turner Prize–nominated artist. Lavish photography captures a range of colorful paintings, delicate sketches, and sculptures that resemble brushstrokes suspended in air.
