Art Now Vol 4: The Ongoing Catalog of Contemporary Art – Think of this tome as a global go-round of the world’s most influential galleries: if it’s hot in the art world today, it’s in this book. Emerging artists are featured alongside established greats like Chuck Close, David Hockney, or Brice Marden. A to Z entries on more than 100 artists include images of important recent work, an introductory text, and a short exhibition history with bibliographical information.

Featured artists: Adel Abdessemed, Ai Weiwei, Doug Aitken, Allora & Calzadilla, Darren Almond,…
