Selected praise:

‘A liberation and a joy, beautifully written and brilliantly thought. What Artists Wear is at once a revelatory account of how art is made and an electrifying investigation into the relationship between clothes and autonomy, freedom and power.’ – Olivia Laing

‘Brilliant, loving, visually incisive.’ – Hilton Als
