447 pp., 4to., colour illus., hardback, d.w., Cape Town, 2004. OUT OF PRINT
Fifteen writer/curators were asked to draw up a list of fifteen "top" artists that they would like to see included in a book focusing on "the cutting edge of comtemporary art production today, as informed by and shaped during the past 10 years of South Africa's emergence into the global art scene". Each writer was then allocated six or seven artists and asked to motivate their selections. "Most writers were keen to emphasise that the resulting list did not claim to represent 'the top hundred artists, but rather a selection that reflected multiple viewpoints and priorities, providing a broader view of contemporary production that seen before."

The fifteen writers are Emma Bedford, David Brodie, Thembinkosi Goniwe, Khwezi Gule, Sharlene Khan, David Koloane, Andrew Lampbrecht, Moleleki Frank Ledimo, Virginia MacKenny, Sipho Mdanda, Tumelo Mosaka, Tracy Murinik, Colin Richards, Kathryn Smith and Sue Williamson.
