Cream of the crop

By  |  0 Comments

The latest in Phiadon’s acclaimed ‘Cream’ series has arrived on our shores, and it’s far grander than the past four installations. Currently the most in-depth and original resource for anyone interested in emerging contemporary artists, ‘Creamier: Contemporary Art In Culture’ is a literary depiction of a roundtable discussion between 10 prominent international curators and their pick of the 100 most influential up-and-coming contemporary artists. Presented in a quirky newspaper-inspired layout, every page is brimming with artist profiles, accompanied by full coloured images of their globally scattered exhibitions. Not just another coffee table book with pretty pictures, ‘Creamier’ takes a look at all modern day influences affecting the artistic practice, from global recession to changing technologies, while exploring the idea that there are no limitations on age, geography or medium.

‘Creamier: Contemporary Art In Culture’ is available now in Borders, Dymocks, Berkelouw and other independent bookstores.
