100 New Artists: Despite Moments of Clarity, There is no 'Ism' in This Book

Francesca Gavin

Bringing together an innovative new generation who are creating the aesthetics of the next decade, all the artists featured are making waves in the contemporary art world. 100 New Artists features the new themes, media, imagery and ideas emerging in contemporary art practice.

Embracing painting, sculpture, installation art, photography, performance work, collage, video and new technology, the book's artists range from Madrid to Athens, Los Angeles to Paris, Berlin to São Paulo. There are members of the Bowery school of New York’s Lower East Side such as Agathe Snow, the new wave of underground Berlin artists that include Özlem Altin, and new installation artists in Tokyo like Teppei Kaneuji.

This is a vital new wave of art – post conceptualism, post-minimalism, post pop. Not only a snapshot of art at this moment, 100 New Artists is a place to discover the people who will define our aesthetic future.
