100 Painters of Tomorrow

http://www.neme.org/blog/100-painters-of-tomorrow

Painting is enjoying a remarkable creative renaissance in the 21st century, with many of the world’s leading artists now working in this most enduring and seductive of media. 100 Painters of Tomorrow is an ambitious new project, initiated by editor-curator Kurt Beers and the publishers Thames & Hudson, to find the 100 most exciting painters at work today. Culminating in a major publication that will introduce and present each artist and their work, creating a snapshot of the best new talent in painting from across the globe, submissions are invited via the project’s website from 15 January – 15 March 2013.

The open call submission is international and open to any artist who uses paint as their primary medium. There is no age limit for entry, but each of the selected artists will have gained professional recognition in the last five years (that is, since 2008/9) through their education, gallery representation or in the production of a significant body of work. In addition, more than 100 of the world’s leading art schools are being directly invited to participate, nominating recent graduates to submit their applications.

Artists’ submissions will be judged by an international panel featuring some of the most prominent names in contemporary art, including the painter Cecily Brown, curators Sir Norman Rosenthal, Yuko Hasegawa, Gregor Muir and Suzanne Cotter, and writer-critics Suzanne Hudson, Philip Tinari and Barry Schwabsky.

100 Painters of Tomorrow, edited by Kurt Beers, will be published by Thames & Hudson in 2014 and accompanied by a major exhibition of contemporary painting at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts. The publication will feature texts giving essential biographical information on these rising stars, accompanied by quotations from the artists themselves, providing personal insights into their thinking and practice. Lavishly illustrated with more than 300 colour images, it will be the intelligent and definitive guide to the outstanding painters of the future.
