Gabriel Gee publishes Art in the North of England, Routledge, an Ashgate book, 2017

"This book is a very clear and comprehensively written historiographical overview of the production and consumption of contemporary visual arts in the North of England in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. The study is divided in three chrono- logical parts, each focusing on a particular decade. The historical starting point is the election of the leader of the Conservative Party, Margaret Thatcher, as prime minister in 1979. It ends with the global financial crisis of 2008.

 The author intertwines a theoretical art historical methodology with a specific socio-political historical context in a clearly defined geographic region. The relationship between political, social and economic changes, such as massive deindustrialization, the decline of working-class communities and the search for urban regeneration and reconstruction, and artistic developments — ‘aesthetic thought and modes of visual expression’ — is thoroughly analyzed."  Peter Rogiest, Cambridge University Press Library Journal, 2017
