A comprehensive survey of contemporary art in Australia and New Zealand, edited by Art and Australia.

Current: Contemporary Art from Australia and New Zealand is the first comprehensive survey of all that is cutting edge in Australian and New Zealand contemporary practice.

In a landmark publication, the book features eighty artists, carefully chosen to best reflect the vibrancy of art of the moment. While Current could be seen as a hot list of contemporary taste in the tradition of Taschen s Art Now, inclusivity is the book s abiding theme.

Current is also underpinned by scholarship with commissioned essays by the region s leading writers and curators.


  • Profiles of 80 artists from Australia and New Zealand 
  • Five essays by leading curators 
  • Roundtable discussion on contemporary Indigenous art
  • Beautifully designed with over 240 pages of images
