Ian North: art/work/words traces the career of New Zealand-born, Adelaide-based artist, curator and writer, Ian North.

The book offers an overview and assessment of Ian North’s wide-ranging career, highlighting his significant work in photography from the 1970s to the present day, and his contribution to Australian museum practice as a curator at the Art Gallery of South Australia (1971-80) and the National Gallery of Australia (1980-84). The book reprints four key essays by North including Expanse: Aboriginalities, spatialities and the politics of ecstasy (1998).
