Just as Picasso’s Guernica and Géricault’s Raft of the Medusa survive as powerful cultural documents of their time, there will be works from our own era that will endure for generations to come. But which ones? Which contemporary artworks best capture the spirit of the late 20th and early 21st centuries? Which artists and artworks from the past two decades will come to define our age through their power to question, provoke and inspire?
Accessible and incisive texts offer a biography of each piece, tracing its inception and impact, and showing how it provides a unique keyhole not only into the imagination of the artist who created it but also into the age in which we live.
This is important and enjoyable reading for all those working with and studying contemporary culture, as well as for the art-lover keen to find a clear path through the maze of contemporary art across the world.
