100 Contemporary Artists

Forthcoming from Taschen, 100 Contemporary Artists. This two volume publication covers the 100 most exciting artists from two previous Taschen efforts – Contemporary Art Now! and Art and the Turn of the Millenium. Trimming these down to a single compendium of names and works, 100 Contemporary Artists allows for a strong review of the current art scene. Thrown in are a few late 20th-century art stars (like Jean-Michel Basquiat), who sit along side Jeff Koons, Christopher Wool, Kehinde Wiley, and more in the pages.
