Editorial Reviews

Review

'It's a fine addition to the cream series, and one that budding Saatchis would do well to invest in before reaching for the cheque book.' (GQ) 'A work of art in itself.' (Creative Review) 'A beautiful chunky tome of a book ... Art purists beware, this book is not for you: free thinking liberals you are free to embrace.' (Fused)

By A Customer on November 30, 2003
Format: Hardcover
"Cream 3" is an exciting and innovative book in design and concept, and a great introduction to cutting edge art.
However I think the work within is not quite as interesting as that in "Cream 2" (or the similar survey, "Art Now"). The work somehow seems less intelligent original and compelling as the previous volume (though it is much better designed as a book.)
In light of the plethora of video work, I believe that such books should be accompanied by a CD or DVD with sample clips of the video art, as did the last Whitney Biennial catalogue (albeit with a CD for audio art). Unlike flat art or sculpture, visualizing moving images with stills is a bit like trying to comprehend the 5th dimension in our 3 dimensional world.
It is quite amazing how the former hegemony of New York has been replaced by a globalize art world (perhaps part due to public spending outside the US). The editors of the Cream series have taken pains to accelerate this trend of globalization to a significant advantage.
Nevertheless, I have one caveat on this subject. I know that the curators cannot represent every country in the world, but they have not mentioned one artist in Australia and New Zealand - both (interrelated) counties that are now producing quite outstanding and innovative art that often goes unnoticed in the Northern hemisphere.

This third volume of the Cream series disappointed me. I say this mainly because this book gets bogged down in either conceptual ideas that are less than grandiose or curatorial/theoretical high-mindedness that trumpets the intelligence and sensitivity of those compiling the list. Instead of looking at emerging artists either from the markets point of view or as those new artists inspiring other artists, this book becomes about as flat and appealing as rusty water.

Its one saving grace is that it is bringing dozens of artist's attention for the first time in a major publication. And even if these artists' work for the most part is less than overwhelming, it is interesting to explore their work. Maybe not enough time passed between the first, second, and third Creams to allow for the quality found in the first two. But I suspect it was primarily those that did the compiling this time around that are to blame for the damaging of an otherwise fine series.

Try Vitamin P or the earlier Creams if you are interested in a contemporary art survey.

I found this book to be very informative with some of the things that are being done in Contemporary Art. However, the two Cream books preceeding Cream 3 are much more creative in layout and there are more innovative artists as well. This book is good, but compared to the others it is lacking just a bit.

The design of the book although is pretty good, its not sophisticated as fresh cream, seems like too big and heavy, just as the book design lacks a clear concept. The page layout of cream 3 isn't very delicated too... but in general its a great book, the compilation of artist is really wonderful...
