100 Works Of Art That Will Define Our Age (NSFW)

A new art book is boldly going where no other a few other art books have gone before, daring to highlight 100 works of art that have defined the late 20th and early 21st century art world. From Matthew Barney to Kara Walker, “the aptly named 100 Works Of Art That Will Define Our Age" aims to gather every worthy contemporary artist in one giant, 320-page compilation.

The list is varied in media — works by performance artists like Marina Abramovic sit happily near the contraptions of conceptual bad boys like Jake and Dinos Chapman. And the 100 lucky honorees span the globe, ranging from pieces by Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei, Iranian-born Shirin Neshat, and Danish-Icelandic wunderkind, Olafur Eliasson. Plus, unlike the Renaissance-era art listicles, the roster is a bit more gender-inclusive, as artists like Barbara Kruger and Wangechi Mutu are given their much deserved attention.

"100 Works of Art That Will Define Our Age," by Kelly Grovier, is available through Thames & Hudson.
