The Contemporary Art Book Summary

The Contemporary Art Book by Charlotte Bonham-Carter

Without doubt, the international contemporary art stage increases annually, drawing new crowds and new interest. Whilst enticing, contemporary art can be bewildering. This accessible and beautifully produced guide will pinpoint key artists and events, and so help demystify a generation of rapid change in the art world. The A-Z listing (by artist's name) will feature 200 of the most widely exhibited and remarkable artists who have made substantial contributions over the past 40 years; with biographies, insights into their key works and cross-referencing to linked artists, themes and movements. This essential directory will clarify new art developments for a wide audience and highlight international venues and events to visit. The comparative titles include: "Art Now" by Taschen with smaller format, and directory of cutting-edge artists, which doesn't include the progenitors of contemporary art; "20th Century Art Book" by Phaidon Press, stops at year 2000; and, "Cream and Ice Cream" from Phaidon Press with cutting-edge new artists for a niche audience.
