A Hedonist's Guide to Art Reveals the Secrets of the World of Art through a Collection of Essays
A Hedonist’s Guide to Art comprises of 90+ essays
LONDON.- Hg2 Art is a handbook that gives readers an insight into both the darker reaches of the art world and some of its more enchanting pockets. Revealing insider secrets, it answers the questions every would-be art collector wants to know.

Hg2 Art is a seminal collection of essays that will not only inspire any burgeoning collector, but anyone wishing to tap into the esoteric fortress of strange that is the art world.

Gilbert & George, Sarah Lucas, Will Self, Keith Tyson, Sue Webster, Martin Creed, Polly Morgan, Mat Collishaw, Anthony Haden-Guest, Lynn Barber, Rankin, and other internationally renowned artists, writers, gallery owners, collectors and hangers on, reveal their hidden lives, the lives of others, and the slightly appalling secrets that only a select handful of people are as yet a party to. Learn how to navigate the best art parties, why you should buy the art you hate, where the international curating and collecting hotspots are, and how to become a dealer. You will even learn how to become God, Himself.

A Hedonist’s Guide to Art comprises of 90+ essays, and a few pieces of never-before-seen, original art, especially made for the book. Some of the contributions will make you laugh out loud, some will make you turn a shade of puce, while others might just make you cry.

Whatever their poison, this unique anthology will bring a wry smile to all art enthusiasts.
