Reviews

"Big names - Matthew Barney, John Currin, Christian Marclay, Cindy Sherman - sit alongside lesser-known artists. Allora and Calzadilla's interdisciplinary work - performative, playful and often using found materials - is a perfect opening profile. Numerous essays provide further context for this dynamic scene." Metro

"Just under 250 pages of mini-essays about the US/Canadian art landscape from 1050 onwards, with colour plates which, if this is your artistic bag, will give you a 'tear me out, put me on your wall' come-on." Buzz Magazine

"The accompanying photographic documentation of artists' work presents beautiful, high-colour glossy images - some of which, remarkably, have never been seen before outside of the studio." C Magazine
