A Royal Academy of Arts Publication

Apocalypse accompanies one of the most exciting art events of the year. Concentrating on themes inspired by the coming of the 21st century, this internationally significant exhibition-the successor to the controversial "Sensation" exhibition shown at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York-will include installations, paintings, sculptures, and videos, many specially created for the exhibition by 15 internationally renowned and controversial artists whose identities are a closely guarded secret.

For the catalogue, the talented young photographer Norbert Schoerner has photographed the artists at work in their studios. Norman Rosenthal, exhibitions secretary at the Royal Academy and curator of the exhibition, contributes an introduction explaining his personal vision of the arts at this turning point in history. Thought-provoking and authoritative essays on each artist have been provided by leading art writers. Sure to attract international attention, Apocalypse is an essential purchase for anyone interested in contemporary art.
