Current: Contemporary Art from Australia & NZ
Art & Australia
This landmark publication presents outstanding contemporary Australian art in a fabulous 360-page hardback book – 240 pages of illustrations and 120 pages of text. There is an excellent 300-word text and several pages of images to present each artist. Current also includes commissioned essays by the leading writers and curators, including Victoria Lynn, Rachel Kent, Nick Waterlow and Brenda L. Croft, who convened a group of Indigenous curators to explore the contemporary within Aboriginal art. Artists include Paddy Bedford, Simryn Gill, Ah Xian, Tracey Moffatt, Shaun Gladwell, Del Kathryn Barton, Benjamin Armstrong, and Sean Cordeiro and Claire Healy, whose reassembled contents of an apartment adorn the cover. Highly recommended.
