Library Journal Review

The demise of painting as an art form has been anticipated and disputed ever since the invention of photography in the 19th century. This exhibition catalog is published in conjunction with a show at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and addresses the current state of painting within the international avant-garde. It features 30 cutting-edge artists from around the world, with some more familiar names including Mike Kelley, John Currin, Marlene Dumas, Takashi Murakami, and Chris Ofili. The work of these artists is complemented by equally cutting-edge writing on contemporary painting, contributed by an array of academics, artists (many of whom are featured in the exhibit itself), and curators. The artist plates at the end of the catalog function as a small encyclopedia of contemporary painting, while large color gatefolds and brief profiles represent each of the artists in the exhibition. The design, though contemporary and stylish, can be cumbersome to the reader. Recommended for academic and specialized art collections. Krista Ivy, Bryn Mawr Coll., PA (c) Copyright 2010.
