This international survey of contemporary painting, a follow-up to 2002's Vitamin P, never asserts that the 115 painters included are the best or most interesting. 

Instead, as Barry Schwabsky (art critic, The Nation) writes in his introduction, here is "an overview that never claim[s] to be a canon…merely a collection of painters that some people knowledgeable about the field considered interesting." 

Schwabsky calls it a crowd-sourced approach, although here the crowd is not random but rather a distinguished group of 40 curators from institutions around the world. The format suggests a broad landscape that readers may browse at leisure. The artists chosen all received either their first attention or renewed attention in the past five years. The works themselves are exceptionally diverse—in imagery, method, and materials. The layout is a two-page spread, with brief essays and several color plates for each artist.
