Art Plural (Hardback)
Art is now a globalized phenomenon, with artists from all corners of the world showing their works on an international stage as never before. How do we begin to understand the ensuing multitude of different directions in contemporary art? In Art Plural: Voices of Contemporary Art world-renowned art historian and writer Michael Peppiatt joins with Swiss gallerist Frederic de Senarclens of Art Plural Gallery, as well as over 25 leading contemporary artists, to share their thoughts on this diverse art scene.

The artists include: Armen Agop, Agathe de Bailliencourt, Ali Banisadr, Chun Kwang Young, Yves Dana, Adam Dant, Ian Davenport, Bernard Frize, Fu Lei, Li Tianbing, Adriana Molder, Nan Qi, Jedd Novatt, Sherman Ong, Dane Patterson, Qiu Jie, Imran Qureshi, Pablo Reinoso, Doug and Mike Starn, Agus Suwage, Thukral & Tagra, Tian Taiquan, Gert and Uwe Tobias, Bernar Venet, Fabienne Verdier, Zhang Huan, and Zhang Xiaogang.
