"Ice Cream" is a global survey of recent developments in contemporary art with an emphasis on emerging artists. Each of the ten selected curators is known for his or her integrity and expertise in staging presentations of new art on an international level. Each curator selects 10 important new artists who have either emerged internationally over roughly the past five years, or are still relatively unknown. No limitations as to age, geography, or media to be imposed. To have emerged means to have had a few solo shows, but nothing major, to have perhaps been reviewed in the major international art press, but no major monographic book, to have been given sufficient exposure without yet becoming fully established. Each curator also selects a Source Artist, namely any artist from any previous generation whom they feel remains of key significance either to contemporary art at large or to his or her own thinking. The idea is to contextualize today's practice.
