With the birth of contemporary museum culture and the advent of digital technologies, the 21st century has brought a whole new means by which to access art and its histories. How do we engage with contemporary art in an ever-developing global context, without getting lost in a frenzied cult of novelty?
The Artists Who Will Change the World is a new global map of art that points to the future. Unlike a traditional atlas, its cartography illustrates a world of international artists who may not yet be household names, but who will undoubtedly shape the art of tomorrow. These are artists whose work engages with the aesthetics of technology and the issues of tomorrow; artists who are developing concepts rarely tested before, or who are engaging with politics in new ways. Omar Kholeif takes us on a journey of discovery that will influence generations of artists and art lovers to come.
'Exciting … Omar Kholeif looks to the future influence of some of today’s most promising and game-changing artists … an essential manual for the 21st century and beyond'
