Submissions to 100 Painters of Tomorrow are invited until March 15, 2013. This international call is open to any artist using paint as a primary medium, and is accessible now at: 100paintersoftomorrow.com


100 Painters of Tomorrow will be written by curator and gallerist Kurt Beers, and published in 2014 by Thames & Hudson. The book will feature texts with biographical information on each of the selected promising artists, illustrated with more than 300 colour images, and will be the comp rehensive and definitive guide to the most dynamic emerging painters of the future. Submissions will be judged by an international jury featuring the painter Cecily Brown, curators Sir Norman Rosenthal, Yuko Hasegawa, Gregor Muir and Suzanne Cotter, and writer-critics Suzanne Hudson, Philip Tinari, Tony Godfrey, and Barry Schwabsky. In addition, the world's leading art schools have been invited to participate, and the publication will be accompanied by a major painting exhibition at London's Institute of Contemporary Arts.

Thames & Hudson was founded in 1949 by Walter and Eva Neurath. Their passion and mission for T&H was that its books should reveal the world of art to the general public, to create a 'museum without walls' and to make accessible to a broad, non-specialist reading public, at prices it could afford, the research and the findings of top scholars and academics. Thames & Hudson now publishes approximately 180 new titles each year and has a current backlist of over 2000 titles. The company specializes in the arts (fine, applied, decorative, performing), archaeology and history, architecture, design, photography, travel and popular culture.
