Contemporary art, continued
Unless you regularly trawl the Chelsea galleries, hang out at the Tate Modern, peruse the Pompidou, attend every Biennale, and religiously read Artforum, you could likely use a primer on the art scene in the world today. Fortunately we’ve created our second Art Now volume to keep art fans abreast of the latest trends and hottest names. Not only will you discover the most important artists in the international art market, you’ll also learn how the art scene has changed dramatically in recent years - notably with a return to figurative painting and an increase in political topics. Featuring over 135 artists in A-Z entries, plus a special section about gallery representation and current market prices, Art Now Vol. 2 is the guide to what’s happening and who’s who in contemporary art.
A-Z artist entries include:
• short biography
• exhibition history and bibliographical information
• images of important recent work
Bonus illustrated appendix features:
• names and contact information for the galleries representing the artists featured
• primary market prices
• the five best auction results
