Celebrated musician and artist Bill Drummond turns his attention to the world of modern art. Several years ago, he bought a photograph by the artist Richard Long for $20,000. After owning it for some time, he decided to cut it into $20,000 small pieces and sell them off at a dollar per piece. By the time this book is published, Drummond plans to have sold all $20,000 of these pieces and will announce, at the Spring 2010 Affordable Art Fair, what this means for modern art.
In his numerous musical incarnations - as manager of Echo & The Bunnymen, as co-founder of the multi-million- selling band The KLF etc - Drummond has combined global success with a fiercely independent slant. As an artist his work, over the past thirty years, has examined the cultural landscape through a diverse array of forms. Bill Drumond lives in London.
