The End of the Art World (Aesthetics Today) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most significant change in the art world over the past two decades has not been the evolution of a new style or movement but in how art is promoted and marketed. After prices accelerated in the 1980s, today's art world is beginning to look more like a multi-national corporation than a cultural institution.

Acclaimed critic, poet, and historian Robert C. Morgan argues for a new qualitative standard in art, not only in painting and sculpture, but also in literature, music, video, photography, conceptual art, and installations. Poignantly and powerfully written, he calls for an end to the art world as we know it, a world governed by the trends of fashion, media, and popular entertainment, and proposes a return to aesthetics and a new inner-directedness in art.

Synopsis:

This collection of essays calls for an end to the art world, seeking to replace hype with an aesthetics of inner-directed art.

Synopsis:

A stimulating collection of writings on the separation of the "art world" from the realities of the artist community.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 207-217) and index.
