One hundred rising art stars, selected by an international panel of ten leading curators, are presented here.

This book offers an insider's view of new art in all media - from painting and sculpture to such new art forms as video, photography, installation, performance and digital media.

It offers an informed survey on current tendencies and personalities at the forefront of contemporary art.

Numerous examples of each selected artist's work are presented together with a brief curator's text and the artist's exhibition history/bibliography.

This virtual exhibition of a new art is accompanied by a virtual conversation on the Internet among the ten curators, highlighting the motivations behind their selection of artists and the questions surrounding art today.

The art is also framed within a broader cultural context; "cream" includes a selection of recent texts by ten key contemporary writers who address pressing issues in art and culture at the end of the millennium.
