Conceptual Art (Art & Ideas) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What is art? Must it be a unique, saleable luxury item? Can it be a concept that never takes material form? Or an idea for a work that can be repeated endlessly? Conceptual art favours an engagement with such questions. It can take many forms: photographs, videos, posters, billboards, charts, plans and, especially, language itself. Tony Godfrey has written the first clear and informative account of this fascinating phenomenon.

Synopsis:

Featuring the work of American and European artists, this book traces the history of conceptual art from its origins in the Dada movement through to its current practitioners. It offers an accessible explanation of the phenomenon rooted in a social context. Aimed at A level and undergraduate students, as well as the general reader.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 438-440) and index.
