The seventh title in Black Dog Publishing's ART WORLD series, 'Contemporary Art in Scandinavia' showcases the wealth of contemporary art being produced in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland today, providing a unique complexion of the Scandinavian contemporary art scene. Until recently Scandinavian practice in general has been one of the great unknowns of the contemporary art scene. Now there are signs that this is changing, with collectors, curators and critics eager to investigate (and extol) the merits of a slice of the global art market that has been inexplicably overlooked. Beautifully illustrated in full colour, the book profiles a spectrum of contemporary artists, featuring a range of contributions from artists including Lars Heeling and galleries such as UKS, Den Frie, Candyland and 1857. In keeping with the previous books in the series, Contemporary Art in Scandinavia is fully illustrated and organised so as to transcend geographical and regional preconceptions. A specially commissioned introductory essay and appendix of reprinted essays by writers, academics and practitioners working in the field contextualises the work in this eye-opening introduction to one of today's most vibrant and fascinating art scenes.
