Luke Turner

Luke Turner (b.1982, Manchester, UK) is an artist and writer based in London. His work investigates the operations and oscillations of art, exploring ideas of presence and excess. His practice evolved out of his work on the web in the ’90s. He completed a Master of Arts at the Royal College of Art in 2010, and published a Metamodernist Manifesto the following year. He is also co-editor of the aesthetics and culture website, Notes on Metamodernism.
