This phonebook-sized survey of current contemporary art is the world's first look at the collection of the brand-new Museum of Contemporary Art of Castilla and LeAn, in Spain. MUSAC's stated mission is to serve as a museum of the present, an ever-changing art environment in a 'living space that opens the door to a wide range of contemporary artistic expressions... a series of game boards on which action is the leading player.' The museum's pointedly international collection, assembled with an eye to social commentary, includes work by Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Kutlug Ataman, Matthew Barney, Rineke Dijkstra, Marcel Dzama, Olafur Eliasson, Andreas Gursky, Candida H fer, William Kentridge, Tracey Moffatt, Shirin Neshat, Pipilotti Rist, Anri Sala and Do-Ho Suh, to name a few of more than 150 artists represented by 900 works. The MUSAC Collection is an incomparable survey of the field and the ideal armchair-traveler's introduction to an exciting new space.
