100 Painters of Tomorrow: Christie's
Book launch: 30 October 6-9pm
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.
The book launch at Christie's on 30 October served as the official UK release of '100 Painters of Tomorrow' in advance of the coinciding exhibitoins of '100 Painters of Tomorrow' in New York and London.
