CONTEMPORARY EUROPE ART GUIDE

HATJE KANTZ    Book Number: 70675    Product format: Paperback

This handbook to European galleries that showcase the art scene of the past 50 years covers institutions in over 40 countries. Everyone has a different idea of when contemporary art swept away modernism, realism and a whole host of other isms, but this guide starts with Pop Art and the cultural shift of the 1960s. It focuses on not-for-profit organisations, giving each gallery's address, opening hours, phone number and website, together with a brief overview of the collection and in many cases a photo to facilitate recognition. London is represented by giants such as the Tate, the Royal Academy, the Serpentine Gallery and Saatchi Galleries, complemented by less well known institutions such as the Islington Parasol Unit and Camden Arts Centre. Paris, Berlin, Basel and Venice are major centres of contemporary art but there are also important collections in less accessible galleries, including Britain's Hepworth Gallery and Yorkshire Sculpture Park in the Wakefield area, the Pinchuk Art Centre in Kiev, Oslo's Astrup Fearnley Museum and Edinburgh's Fruitmarket Gallery, complementing its breathtaking National Gallery of Modern Art. 368pp, softback, 14 x 22CM, black and white photos, appendices giving publishers, auctions, art fairs, prizes, residencies.
