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. The format is simple — twelve curators each selected eight artists to represent the avant-garde of twelve specific cities. Exploring the artistic heritage, cultural climate and contemporary milieu of these emerging cities, this ground-breaking book features a variety of media including photography, painting, sculpture, installation, video, performance and new media works, by a new generation of artists gaining prominence on the international art circuit. Cities highlighted in the book include: Beirut, Bogota, Cluj, Delhi, Istanbul, Johannesburg, Lagos, San Juan, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Singapore and Vancouver. Lively, thought-provoking, comprehensive, and packed with more than 500 images, this book is sure to widen the historical narrative, allowing us to imagine a future of diverse aesthetics and shared concerns in the common language of contemporary art.
