n De Arte - Deborah Bell, Pippa Stein et al : book review




It has become something of a cliché to greet the arrival of each new TAXI art book (of which this is the tenth) with noises of welcome, approval for the diversity of artists covered and comments on the need for such books to fill huge historical gaps in the market and to provide an educational resource while raising the profile of South African artists. Take all that, then, as read, and know that I am as eager as anyone to see each successive publication. Each one has been somewhat different, as if trying out different juxtapositions of artworks and written texts. This approach has meant that each publication is fresh and something of a surprise, yet each one has opened itself to different criticisms.
