BNO is delighted to offer a carefully curated and thought-provoking selection of 31 works of contemporary art. Contemporary art is the art of today, produced by artists who are living in the twenty-first century. It provides an opportunity to reflect on contemporary society and the issues relevant to ourselves and the world around us. Contemporary artists work in a globally influenced, culturally diverse, and technologically advancing world. Their art is a dynamic combination of materials, methods, concepts, and subjects that challenge traditional boundaries and defy easy definition. Diverse and eclectic, contemporary art as a whole is distinguished by the very lack of a uniform, organizing principle, ideology, or ?ism.? Contemporary art is part of a cultural dialogue that concerns larger contextual frameworks such as personal and cultural identity, family, community, and nationality. Much contemporary art from the last 30 years has been connected with one issue or another: feminism, multiculturalism, globalization, bio-engineering and AIDS awareness all come readily to mind as subject matter. Featured contemporary artists in BNO?s Contemporary Art auction include: David Taveras, Hector Pedraza, Serge Lis Eliseev, Nana Tchitchoua, Abby Modell, Noe Badillo, Caroline R. Young, Sam Aleks, Bruce Sulzberg, Claudia Guillen, Ray Hare, James Twitty, Fernando Botero, Karl Clinger, and Andy Katz.
