ECA celebrates Jarman2014 with new acquisition of Deluxe sketchbooks
Derek Jarman’s sketchbooks are part autobiography and part social history, bursting with the energy and creativity of this groundbreaking artist. This publication collates the best of Jarman’s sketchbooks to reveal the detailed planning and emotional engagement behind each of his films in more depth than ever before.
Jarman2014 is a year-long celebration of the life and work of Derek Jarman (1942–1994). Artist and queer activist, filmmaker and set designer, writer and memoirist, painter and poet – Jarman’s extraordinary body of work was at the forefront of creative practice for three decades. With a range of exhibitions, screenings and retrospectives, readings, commissions and other events at a variety of London’s most significant cultural institutions, Jarman2014 revisits the artist and his work, twenty years after his death from AIDS-related causes.
