Movement Overview

The Young British Artists (or YBAs) were a group of artists who started exhibiting together in the late 1980s and quickly gained notoriety for their original and often shocking art, as well as their provocative behaviour. Despite the controversy around them, artists like Damien Hirst went on to win the prestigious Turner Prize, while Tracey Emin is now a Royal Academician. The YBAs have been credited with revitalising interest in British art in the 1990s.
