Edited by Laura Hoptman
 
The Forever Now presents paintings by seventeen artists whose singular approaches are characteristic of our cultural moment in refusing to allow us to define, or even meter our time by them. This tendency was first identified by the science-fiction writer William Gibson, who used the term "atemporality" to describe a cultural product that doesn't represent—through its style, its content, or its medium—the time from which it comes. Atemporality, or timelessness, manifests itself in painting as both a profligate mixing of past styles and genres and also a radical paring down of visual language to the most archetypal forms.
 
Published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, this volume features work by an international roster of artists including Richard Aldrich, Joe Bradley, Kerstin Brätsch, Matt Connors, Michaela Eichwald, Nicole Eisenman, Mark Grotjahn, Charline von Heyl, Rashid Johnson, Julie Mehretu, Dianna Molzan, Oscar Murillo, Laura Owens, Amy Sillman, Josh Smith, Mary Weatherford, and Michael Williams. 184 pp.; 135 illus.
