Liam Gillick (born 1964, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire) is a British artist living in London and New York. He is often associated with the artists included in art critic and curator Nicolas Bourriaud's 1996 exhibit Traffic, which first introduced the term Relational Art. These artists include Rirkrit Tiravanija, as Claire Bishop states, "Bourriaud deems them both to be paradigmatic of "relational aesthetics."  He was also in Bourriaud's 2002 exhibition ""Touch: Relational Art from the 1990s to Now"" at the San Francisco Art Institute.. In 2009, Gillick represented Germany in the Giardini Pavilions of the Venice Biennale. Together with Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, Angela Bulloch and Henry Bond he was, "the earliest of the YBAs"—the Young British Artists who dominated British art during the 1990s.
