<strong>"From his phrasing of its title to his choices of artists and the works by them, if nothing else will get people arguing over the art of their time, Groviers book will." ?<em>San Francisco Chronicle</em></strong> Just as Picassos <em>Guernica</em> or Gericaults <em>Raft of the Medusa</em> survive as powerful cultural documents of their time, certain artworks from our own era will endure for generations to come.<br /><br /> Kelly Grovier curates a compelling list of one hundred paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, performances, and video pieces that have made the greatest impact from 1989 to the present. The global cast of artists includes Marina Abramovic, Matthew Barney, Christian Boltanski, Louise Bourgeois, Maurizio Cattelan, Marlene Dumas, Olafur Eliasson, Andreas Gursky, Cristina Iglesias, On Kawara, Jeff Koons, Ernesto Neto, Gerhard Richter, Pipilotti Rist, Kara Walker, and Ai Weiwei. Many of the pieces reflect the cultural upheavals of recent times, from the collapse of the Berlin Wall to the blossoming of the Arab Spring.<br /><br /> A daring yet convincing analysis of which artworks best capture the zeitgeist of our time, Groviers list also provides a much-needed map through the landscape of contemporary art. Illustrations of key works are supplemented by comparative images by different artists, sometimes in different periods, while short texts offer a biography of each artwork, tracing its inception and impact, and offering a view not only into the imagination of the artist but into the age in which we live. 242 illustrations, 223 in color
