Editorial Reviews


'Arguably the hottest catalogue of the season ... It is already rumoured to have become the must-have directory for curators' Art World 'One ought to be impressed by the remarkable endurance of the yellow pages in the age of cell phones and Google. The massive artist directory published for the New Museum's "Younger Than Jesus" Triennial is rather reassuring in this sense. ... it is a true relief to find once again that printed matter actually matters. The book as a medium, and as an attractive object, is still what seems to guarantee [...] that what it contains won't get lost in the stream of cultural production. ... a very cheap, very cute encyclopedia of the very latest visual artists' Mousse

Format: Paperback
I really like the idea: gather together recommendations from critics and curators from around the world of artists younger than a certain age, marking their rise into the art world. And, while not every artist included is someone I think is that good, nevertheless many are, and I've gone from this book to other sources to learn about them, and to consider including them in my classes. Yet, with just four pages of introductory text, with so little information about each artist, and with a book printed on the same quality of paper as a telephone directory (yes, that's clever, and it kept the book price down, but it still feels very cheap), this quickly became a book that is something I've flipped through but won't use again. In short, it's not a directory as a reference source but more of a huge, extensive, and superficial listing of names as suggestions, many of whom will be forgotten about in the near future simply given the structure of the art world and not through any lack of talent or merit.
