No. 1: First Works of 362 Artists showcases ‘first’ works by
a raft of the world’s greatest contemporary artists and art photographers.

The artists were asked to submit what they considered their ‘first’ work of art – not the first piece they ever created, but their first ‘defining’ one, the one that set their style and clearly signposted their artistic direction. Their submissions, along with artists’ statements, make up this fascinating look at the process of art-making.

Includes works by 362 artists, including:
Vito Acconci, Robert Adams, Frank Auerbach, John Baldessari, Matthew Barney, Georg Baselitz, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Vanessa Beecroft, Louise Bourgeois, Sophie Calle, Judy Chicago, Chuck Close, Tacita Dean, Thomas Demand, Philip-Lorca di Corcia, Gregory Crewdson, William Eggleston, Inka Essenhigh, Larry Fink, Eric Fischl, Ralph Gibson, Gilbert & George, Nan Goldin, Richard Hamilton, Howard Hodgkin, Jenny Holzer, Anish Kapoor, Alex Katz, Anselm Kiefer, R.
