Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The underlying themes that run through contemporary art, irrespective of styles and techniques, reveal the complex relationship between art and everyday life worldwide. This revised and expanded edition is brought up to date with discussions on the more comprehensive globalization of art since the mid-1990s, which can be seen in the growth of the exhibition calendar and the number of new contemporary art museums opening around the world. With over thirty additional illustrations and an updated timeline and bibliography, this book will prove indispensable to anyone interested in the evolution of modern art.

Book News Annotation:

Archer (fine art, Oxford U., UK) deftly threads his way through the perplexing themes and theories of contemporary art in this updated edition of his 1997 survey. New material includes treatment of the impact of international survey exhibitions and the increasingly multicultural face of the art world. The text moves chronologically, with each chapter organized by theme, including ideology, identity, postmodernism, and post-medium art.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

An expanded edition of this popular reference, which includes an updated timeline and bibliography. Archer's critical overview discusses the often bewildering diversity of styles, forms, media, techniques and agendas that proliferate in contemporary art, and examines the factor of globalization.

Synopsis:

Art today may seem perplexing at first with its divergent styles, forms, practices, media, and agendas. Michael Archer's intelligently argued survey is unique in revealing and making coherent sense of art practice from the past forty years--Pop, Minimal, Conceptual, Land, Performance, Body, and Installation--and myriad developments in the work of Warhol, Beuys, Bourgeois, and the many other artists whose works are discussed and illustrated here.
