Overview

Creamier: Contemporary Art in Culture, is the 5th addition to Phaidon's world renowned Cream series. Every few years, Phaidon brings together 10 illustrious curators to choose 100 of the art world's best and most important emerging contemporary artists, and what they discover becomes an invaluable resource in an ever-changing art world. As has proven to be the case with those featured in the previous four Cream books, these will be the 100 artists the world is talking about for years to come.

Valued by art collectors and art lovers alike as a road map through the ever expanding international art scene of gallery shows, museum exhibitions, biennials, and fairs, the Cream series is a must-have for anyone interested in the art world's latest news and is an excellent introduction to the dialogue among some of its best minds. The introduction features a conversation between the ten curators discussing one of the art world's hottest topics—the recession and how it has impacted the market and artist creativity.

Bound on high quality paper, printed to resemble broadsheet newspaper format, Creamier is packed in a custom-made box. The irony of the very latest news contained in a traditional, some would argue vanishing, format is intriguing. Readers are left to question the fluidity of the art world where an artist's work can be fresh and new for such a short time, but where it never becomes insignificant.
