‘Authoritative and readable’ – Ham & High

• Outlines major trends and identifies the groundbreaking artists who are setting the contemporary agenda

Established artists such as Jeff Koons, Ai Weiwei, Damien Hirst, Gabriel Orozco, Isa Genzken, Mirosław Bałka and Doris Salcedo are featured alongside an international cross-section of the most promising new talent, including Sopheap Pich, Anselm Reyle, Karla Black, Sarah Sze and Thomas Houseago.

Authoritative and highly readable, Anna Moszynska’s text is organized around key themes, from the use of the body in sculpture and the appropriation of everyday materials to the importance of nature and ecology to today’s artists, the relationship with design and other disciplines, and the enormous impact of installation in the twenty-first century.
