Edward Lucie-Smith's two celebrated books, Art Today and Movements in Art since 1945, are rightly regarded as indispensable guides to the often bewildering world of contemporary art. Art Tomorrow pushes his researches and reflections much further. It is not content simply to chronicle what artists have been creating, it attempts to discern what is likely to happen to art in the early years of the 21st century. Lucie-Smith looks at the most creative tendencies in contemporary art, as this now exists, and he also examines the social context. Among the questions he asks are: what will be the impact on art on the new 'super museums', such as the Guggenheim Bilbao, and Tate Modern in London? He also asks if the term 'avant-garde' continues to be meaningful, now that contemporary art is lavishly supported and patronised by governments, wealthy foundations and official agencies of all kinds? Has what we know as experimental art in fact become a kind of official academy? His topics include the continuing development of the Pop sensibility, new attitudes towards the representation of reality in art, the politics of shock, the apparent revival of classicism in a new post-modern guise, and the romance which many experimental artists are now conducting with science, in particular with the science of genetics.

is the first monograph dedicated to the collaborative practice of Maslen & Mehra. Working in a remarkably diverse, experimental and imaginative graphic language, they engage in a powerful dialogue on the natural and human world in which we live.
Maslen & Mehra, artists basing themselves in London, have invented a way of seeing what is closely related to one of the favourite tropes of the science fiction writer. What they offer, essentially, in their large-scale staged photographs, is a series of glimpses into a parallel universe. By placing reflective cut out silhouettes in various landscape and architectural settings, and recording the result, they suggest conjunctions that might otherwise go unnoticed. The silhouettes are visitors from another world, and their reflective surfaces make them only partly visible.
