The first volume of Vitamin P, published in 2002, inaugurated a vibrant period for painting. Since its publication, a whole new generation of painters has emerged, some inspired by the artists who appeared in that book, others taking cues from new sources. Vitamin P2: New Perspectives in Painting introduces this new wave of painters to the world. The vast medium of painting continues to be a central pillar of artistic practice, and Vitamin P2 presents the outstanding artists who are currently engaging with and pushing the boundaries of the medium. Over 80 international critics, artists and curators have nominated the 115 artists who have made a fresh, unique or innovative contribution to recent painting. All of the artists in Vitamin P2 have recently emerged onto the international scene, and none appeared in the first Vitamin P. An introduction by Barry Schwabsky, who also wrote the introduction for Vitamin P, provides a broad overview of recent developments in the medium while also looking towards its future.

Painting has often been declared dead since the 1960s and yet it refuses to die. Even the status and continued legitimacy of the medium has been repeatedly placed in question. As such, painting has had to continually redefine its own parameters and re-negotiate for itself a critical position within a broader, more discursive set of discourses. Taking the American Clement Greenberg's 'Modernist Painting' as a point of departure, After Modernist Painting will be both a historical survey and a critical re-evaluation of the contested and contingent nature of the medium of painting over the last 50 years. Presenting the first critical account of painting, rather than art generally, this book provides a timely exploration of what has remained a persistent and protean medium. Craig Staff focuses on certain developments including the relationship of painting to Conceptual Art and Minimalism, the pronouncement of paintings alleged death, its response to Installation Art's foregrounding of site, how it was able to interpret ideas around appropriation, simulation and hybridity and how today painting can be understood as both imaging and imagining the digital. After Modernist Painting is an invaluable resource for those seeking to understand the themes and issues that have pertained to painting within the context of postmodernism and contemporary artistic practice.

Since 1995, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has published Emerging Infectious Diseases, a public health journal that endeavors to improve scientific understanding of disease emergence, prevention, and elimination. Widely known for its leading research in infectious disease, EID is also recognized for its unique aesthetic, which brings together visual art from across periods and, through prose, makes it relatable to the journal's science-minded readership. In Art in Science: Selections from Emerging Infectious Diseases, the journal's highly popular fine-art covers are contextualized with essays that address how the featured art relates to science, and to us all. Through the combined covers and essays, the journal's contents -- topics such as infections, contagions, disease emergence, antimicrobial resistance -- find larger context amid topics such as poverty and war, the hazards of global travel, natural disasters, and human-animal interactions. This collection of 92 excerpts and covers from Emerging Infectious Diseases will be of interest to readers of the journal or to anyone who wishes to reach across the aisle between art and science.

In recent years, a number of artists have culled images from slapstick, comic strips and films, caricature, cartoons and animation to create works that address matters of war and global conflict, the loss of innocence, and ethnic stereotyping What does it mean to confront political concerns with humor? How can comics, serve as a medium for tackling difficult issues? The works presented here, from Julie Mehretu's intricately layered paintings of cartoon explosions and Arturo Herrera's psychological collages of Walt Disney coloring books to Ellen Gallagher's seductively minimalist paintings permeated by "blackface" signs and Rivane Neuenschwander's overpainted comic strips, grapple with such questions. Both critical and playful, these explorations reflect the intensely personal relationship that many contemporary artists maintain with political currents. This volume, which accompanies an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, presents the first investigation into this mode of representation. It features works by thirteen artists who employ erasure and blurring, appropriation and ambiguity to put a new spin on the relationship between the vernacular language of pop culture and rarified brands of "fine art." Roxana Marcoci's essay looks at each artist in depth and considers how comic characters, style, and narrative structures - so deeply imprinted in our collective consciousness - retain their visual potency even when totally abstracted. Also included are interviews with the artists and selected exhibition histories and bibliographies.

In her first monograph, New York-based artist Avery Singer (born 1987) presents her semi-autobiographical, and often socially critical, figurative oeuvre. Her meticulously detailed black-and-white paintings appear almost machine-made, thwarting our visual expectations and raising the issue of excessive digitized matter in today's society.

'In the POwer of Painting' is devoted to six artists - Andy Warhol, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Cy Twombly, Brice Marden, and Ross Bleckner. Selected groups of works from the Daros Collection, mainly from the artists' early periods, reveal their attitude towards painting and trace the emergence of an individual artistic expression and style in each case. The paintings from the years 1949 to 1998 cover the entire second half of the twentieth century, a turbulent period in the history of art, and irrefutably contradict the assertion of the end of painting.
