Forget New York, London and Paris – the old establishment is being challenged by a new order of art communities seizing the contemporary art agenda around the world

Lively, thought-provoking, comprehensive, and packed with more than 500 images, this book widens the expected historical narrative, allowing us to imagine a future of diverse aesthetics and shared concerns in the common language of contemporary art.

Today the art world is more of a world in every sense, with a larger population, a wider territory and a greater number of nationalities. Its prevailing conversation, however, has yet to catch up. Art Cities of the Future: 21st Century Avant-Gardes uncovers twelve distinct avant-gardes that have emerged around the world in recent decades.

Twelve curators each selected eight artists to represent the avant-garde of a specific city. These artists are senior figures or newer faces, artists working in familiar mediums or inventing their own, but they all share two qualities: a commitment to experimental art and a dedication to their local milieu. In dialogue with larger concerns, their unique sensibility can be found nowhere else.

  • Exploring the artistic heritage, cultural climate and contemporary milieu of twelve emerging cities, this ground-breaking book features a variety of photography, painting, sculpture, installation, video, performance and new media works by this new generation of artists gaining prominence on the international art circuit
  • Features a unique, special format jacket, printed on both sides, that folds out in to a large ‘flag’ with a graphic symbol representing each city; extending the ‘new international’ design concept that under-pins the book’s design structure
  • An essential and wide ranging perspective on today’s avant-garde artists, shaping the future of art

 

It's a clever person who can pinpoint the art world's geographical tours-de-force of the future and an even smarter one who pens a book on the subject. Such is the prescience behind Art Cities of the Future. - Vanity Fair on Art

The book's approach to the contemporary avant-garde is brilliantly executed through unique analysis. - Aestethica
