Beers Contemporary is extremely proud to announce the official release of a major publication, entitled, ‘100 Painters of Tomorrow’. Authored by Director Kurt Beers and published by the UK’s leading fine art publishers, Thames & Hudson, this unique and special publication is the culmination of an extensive project to find the most exciting, fresh and up-and-coming emerging painters currently at work worldwide. The book is an intelligent, wide-ranging and exhilarating survey of largely unknown talent, selected by a distinguished international panel including: painter Cecily Brown; Director of London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts, Gregor Muir; Head of Sharjah Biennale, Yuko Hasegawa, author of Phaidon’s Painting Today, Tony Godfrey; and author of Phaidon’s Vitamin P (Eds. I & II), Barry Schwabsky among others.
The 100 artists featured therein were gathered via an international open-call for submissions that drew over 4,300 applications from 37 countries including Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, India, Iran, Japan, Mexico, Poland, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey, the UK and the USA.
To celebrate the release of ‘100 Painters of Tomorrow’ – a project that has been 2 years in the making – Kurt Beers and the entire team at Beers Contemporary is thrilled to be collaborating with these talented and internationally-based painters with exhibitions in London and New York. ‘100 Painters of Tomorrow’ (London/New York) showcases a unique cross-section of painting from artists included in the publication that spans an extraordinary range of styles and techniques; abstraction to figuration, minimalism to magical realism, traditional oil-on-canvas and mixed media, to performance and installation-based painting.
Exhibiting together for the first time, the work of these artists (who range in age from 23-64) offers an intriguing insight into the state of painting today by providing personal insight into the thinking and creative practices of the 100 artists included therein.
