Adventures in Art draws together 70 of Sue Hubbard’s essays on contemporary and modern art and spans the last 20 years of her career. An award-winning poet, short story writer and novelist, as well as an experienced critic, Hubbard’s collected essays are part biographical, part lyrical reviews of today’s programme of modern art in Britain and provide an honest account of the diversities, originalities, and disappointments found there.

Thick with anecdotes and quotes from historians, artists and commentators, Hubbard’s writing guides us through specific exhibitions as well as the creative lives of her subjects, and places the reader within a context replete with description and art historical value. Her knowledge is incisive and reflective and, in many retrospective cases, the essays read like modern obituaries. Without ever being didactic her writing explores the lives and contributions of artistic figures from Lucien Freud and Sam Taylor Wood, to Marc Quinn and Cy Twombly.
