Who are the most promising artists today? In TOP 100 Artists Flash Art provides some ideas. Two different pollsone according to art critics and curators, the other according to galleristsreveal the new stars. Lots of surprises are in store…

October is the month of choice for London art goers, the best time for fairs and shows, and Flash Art can help you keep track of it all.

Our core theme for this issue is FOCUS LONDON:

In Studio Visits Eliza Williams makes house calls to some of the most active artists in London: Carey Young, Ryan Gander, Marine Hugonnier, Mark Titchner, Martin Westwood, Nathaniel Mellors, Olivia Plender, Pablo Bronstein and Seb Patane.

The London market is generating a lively new array of galleries. In Early Risers Matt Price sheds light on these galleries, giving an inside look at the founders, their backgrounds and their take on the art of the deal.

With another perspective on the art market, Patricia Ellis feature for the Collecting column is devoted to Brit Art maven Charles Saatchis passions, personality and new projects.
Certih Wyn Evans is a central figure in the London art scene, and here he speaks with Francesco Mancorda about his rigorous yet oddly personal relationship with ICA London.

To close Focus London, Aaron Moulton interviews Lali Chetwynd about glue guns, collaboration and Meatloaf as muse.

The cover artist of this issue is Michaël Borremans, who talks with Luk Lambrecht about being Beligian and how this affects his worldview as a painter.

In Los Angeles, Richard Hawkins discusses the unwieldy art practice of Sterling Ruby: Combinations of performance-video, occultish drawings and collages, organic polyform ceramics and stalagmite sculptures have plumbed the dynamics of individual desire within societal constraints.
Hell: One of the Last Chapters closes Klaus Biesenbachs series Into Me / Out of Me. This is the last essay in a series of three, all related to the exhibition now traveling from P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York to KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin.

For aspiring curators seeking the appropriate MA, Andreas Bellinis feature provides a comparison of curatorial schools around the world.

This issue also includes Cityscape Chicago by Michael Workman and a travelogue of East Europe by Aaron Moulton.
