From The Publisher*

The 21st‐Century Art Book is an A‐to‐Z guide of contemporary artists featuring established art‐world figures- Maurizio Cattelan, Cindy Sherman, Jeff Wall- alongside rising stars of the next generations. Global in scope, the book features work from 50 countries across a variety of mediums, from painting, drawing, and sculpture to digital art, video installation, and performance.

Each of the 280 artists included has a dedicated page pairing a significant artwork from his or her oeuvre with lively and informative text. An international directory of major art events along with a helpful glossary round out the package, making this both a must‐have resource and a beautifully illustrated celebration of contemporary art.
