100 New Artists by Francesca GavinIn her new book ‘100 New Artists’ (published by Laurence King), art writer and curator (Soho House, AnOther, Dazed & Confused) Francesca Gavin highlights those who are currently creating the aesthetics of the next decade. All the artists featured – Agathe Snow, Özlem Altin, Teppei Kaneuji, Jack Strange, Sara Rahbar and more – are making waves in the contemporary art world; in interview form, Gavin explores how and why. Though her subjects hail from cities around the globe, congruous ideas, practices and reactions to society emerge; consequently, ‘100 New Artists’ can be regarded as a kind of yearbook that records the mood of now.

‘100 New Artists’ available at b store, 24a Savile Row, W1S 3PR (020 7734 6846); online at laurenceking.com.
