City Racing is the name of a group of artists who got together in 1988 to make art as a collaborative venture at a time when public funding for the arts in Britain was at a very low ebb. They converted a former betting shop into studio space, hence the name 'City Racing'.

 

Family Tree chronicles the professional lives of the artists who were brought together through City Racing, some
now better known than others. The work serves as a fascinating historical record
of the lives of artists who were emerging in Britain in the late 1980s.
