Cream 3

Ten international curators, renowned experts in contemporary art, have each chosen ten artists whom they feel best exemplify what is happening in the contemporary art world today, and also those who will be the stars of the future. The 100 artists in Cream3 have risen to an international platform since 1997 or, in the opinion of the curators who have selected them, are about to do so. Each artist’s work is represented in two double-page spreads, accompanied by a short biography and bibliography and a text by the curator who selected them. The variety of ideas and forms in contemporary art are presented in Cream3 through 400 artists’ pages, arranged A-Z, featuring numerous examples of each artist’s work alongside a brief text from the curator. This virtual exhibition of new art is preceded by a virtual conversation – an internet discussion among the 10 curators – each a noted name involved in the staging of new developments in art. Each curator in Cream3 has also selected a ‘Source’ artist whom they feel has influenced or created the context for the new generation. These 10 ‘Source’ artists provide a wider historical framework in which to view the new work.
