Just as Picasso’s Guernica or Gericault’s Raft of the Medusa survive as powerful cultural documents of their time, certain artworks from our own era will endure for generations to come.Kelly Grovier curates a compelling list of one hundred paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, performances, and video pieces that have made the greatest impact from 1989 to the present. The global cast of artists includes Marina Abramovic, Matthew Barney, Christian Boltanski, Louise Bourgeois, Maurizio Cattelan, Marlene Dumas, Olafur Eliasson, Andreas Gursky, Cristina Iglesias, On Kawara, Jeff Koons, Ernesto Neto, Gerhard Richter, Pipilotti Rist, Kara Walker, and Ai Weiwei. Many of the pieces reflect the cultural upheavals of recent times, from the collapse of the Berlin Wall to the blossoming of the Arab Spring.A daring yet convincing analysis of which artworks best capture the zeitgeist of our time, Grovier’s list also provides a much-needed map through the landscape of contemporary art. Illustrations of key works are supplemented by comparative images by different artists, sometimes in different periods, while short texts offer a biography of each artwork, tracing its inception and impact, and offering a view not only into the imagination of the artist but into the age in which we live.

Recensione:

A marvelous combination of aesthetic sensibility, poetic imagery, and charming wit . . . This is at once a major look at contemporary artworks and a personal investigation of the self-image provoked by them.

A daring and convincing analysis of seminal artworks of our age. Full of stunning works and Grovier argues their significance with conviction --The Daily Telegraph

Daring and convincing ... an illuminating map through the landscape of international contemporary art. --Artdaily.com

You can't argue with the line-up ... as a snapshot of art's preoccupation with spectacle and statement, 100 WORKS is a grand definition of the age. --Wallpaper* magazine

The author's deftly woven and poetically phrased analyses smartly contextualize his choices...Grovier provides an ambitious and convincing survey of contemporary art that hovers delightfully between criticism, history, and an art lover's poetic tribute. --Publisher's Weekly

The lavishly presented selection of works stretches from 1989 to 2012: here, Marina Abramovi's performance art sits next to Banksy graffiti, Grayson Perry's tapestries and Jenny Saville's provocative portraiture...[Grovier] makes a case for each inclusion, often citing the broader narratives of the times that a piece chimed with. --Metro

Richly illustrated ... A valuable read ... Grovier makes a compelling case for his inclusions. --RA Magazine

A compelling list of works ... Thumbing through this book is like looking at a who's who of the art world. Every page is turned with a bang ... this book succeeds in its endeavour. --Aesthetica

[Grovier's] glimpsed the possibility for elegance, intelligence and surprise in 100 tight three-to-five paragraph entries, and followed through ... as hostages to fortune go, 100 Works feels pretty secure. --Art Quarterly

The book that generated most debate this year. --The Daily Telegraph's 'Best Art Books of the Year'

Audacious ... This is a great introduction for anyone keen to get to grips with the headline-grabbers of the past two decades. --Time Out, 'This Season's Best Art Books'

If nothing else will get people arguing over the art of their time, Grovier's book will. --The San Francisco Chronicle, Gift Guide

You have 20 to spend ... what would you buy? I'd give a copy of Kelly Grovier's 100 Works of Art that Will Define Our Age ... He cuts through a great deal of the noise and distractions of the recent decades in art. --The Irish Times, 'This Season's Best Art Books'

Kelly Grovier is a terrific writer who does an exceptional job of putting the work he's selected into context ... those who read each passage will find they learn about much more than just art. --Columbus Underground

Perhaps the most controversial art book of the past year. --The Telegraph's 100 Best Books for Christmas

Unimpeachably on-trend ... an intelligent selection that doesn't set out to be prescriptive.--The Times Literary Supplement

'Kelly Grovier's book is terrific value and every double page is provocative in image and text' Mature Times --Mature Times

Grovier's commentaries are replete with illuminating and surprising references . . . the best of it is magnificent, mind- and eye-opening. --The Tablet
