The Younger than Jesus: Artist Directory is a guidebook to the future of art. Working with a research team made up of more than 150 curators, teachers, critics, bloggers and artists scattered across the globe, New Museum curators Massimiliano Gioni, Lauren Cornell and Laura Hoptman have selected over 500 of the best international artists under the age of 33. While most generational surveys are retrospective, this one is predictive, anticipating the future and revealing upcoming trends. Younger than Jesus: Artist Directory is therefore an unparalleled resource for curators, collectors, dealers, critics – anyone interested in up-to-the-minute contemporary art. This thorough but accessible, lightweight and affordable paperback is not so much a yearbook as a lavishly illustrated search engine, an invaluable tool for accessing the most vibrant and energetic art produced today. By serving as a handbook to currrent artistic innovation, it also appeals to artists, designers and anyone curious about the latest developments in visual culture.

"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."—Mousse
