Editorial Review:
  • An updated edition of the acclaimed title, including new entries on artists such as Frank Bowling, Theaster Gates, and Tino Sehgal
  • An extensive introductory guide to who's who in contemporary art, this book covers 200 of the most widely exhibited international artists, each entry illustrated with a key example of their work in color
  • Includes masters such as Lucian Freud, Louise Bourgeois and Jasper Johns, whose work spans several generations; younger, well-known artists such as Matthew Barney, Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin; and covers the recent emergence of important artists from both East and West

This accessible and beautifully produced guide explores both the rapid changes of recent years and their impact. Contemporary art was once considered inaccessible, elitist or even facile, but is now enjoyed by millions of gallery visitors every year.

The Contemporary Art Book pinpoints the key events that have contributed to this change. Ambitious redevelopments and new constructions - such as London's Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou in Paris, Museo Guggenheim Bilbao, Kiasma in Helsinki and Kunst-Werke Berlin - have led to record numbers of visitors. Art collectors have also been influential, notably Charles Saatchi, whose vigorous promotion of the Young British Artists (or YBA) brought them celebrity status.
