Review quote

"Arguably the hottest catalogue of the season... It is already rumoured to have become the must-have directory for curators."-Art World "One ought to be impressed by the remarkable endurance of the yellow pages in the age of cell phones and Google. The massive artist directory published for the New Museum's Younger Than Jesus Triennial is rather reassuring in this sense... It is a true relief to find once again that printed matter actually matters. The book as a medium, and as an attractive object, is still what seems to guarantee [...] that what it contains won't get lost in the stream of cultural production... A very cheap, very cute encyclopedia of the very latest visual artists."-Mousseshow more
