THE CONTEMPORARIES: TRAVELS IN THE 21ST-CENTURY ART WORLD. Roger White. Bloomsbury USA, Bloomsbury Publishing, New York, 2015. 286 pp. with 35 ills. 24 x 17 cm. LC 2014-29813 ISBN 9781620400944 In English.
Publisher's description: These are exciting times in contemporary art: the market is resurgent; audiences are multiplying. But it's also harder than ever to get a handle on the art world, which is becoming more of an art multiverse: not just Soho or Chelsea (with excursions to Venice or Basel); it's Gowanus, it's Milwaukee, it's YouTube. The institutions at the top may look the same, but there are a multiplicity of forms that an art work, an art career, or an art scene can take. And so The Contemporaries gives readers multiple views, in six major stops of a full-throttle studio tour of sorts. Painter and critic Roger White carries us along; he's both exuberant and skeptical, warm and wry. He takes us through the halls of RISD, where art drives discourse and vice versa, to New York, to pull back the curtain on the strange economy of art assistantship; to Milwaukee, to see a group of young artists trying to envision the possibilities of a local scene.
