  Art Now Vol.2

Just arrived this morning is Art Now Vol.2, edited by Uta Grosenick, published by Taschen. The Art Now series is a great way for someone unitiated with art as it is now to get a snapshot of current modes of cultural production. The entries are short, often 2 or 3 pages only, but they provide a window to new work and further examination. At $39.99, the book is inexpensive for the volume of information provided with one-hundred thirty-six entries bearing multiple images for each artist. This series is similar in nature to the Vitamin series from Phaidon, but the Art Now books have no specific focus on medium. Painters, installation artists, conceptual artists, and videographers all share space in this book. ISBN: 3822839965
