Redeeming Art: Critical Reveries with Other (Aesthetics Today) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In essays culled from three decades of critical writing, Donald Kuspit explores the aesthetic developments of the twentieth century, from post-impressionism to the latest permutation of post-Modernism. Ranging from Willem de Kooning to Andy Warhol to Sue Coe, this provocative anthology chronicles the distinctive voice of a formidable art critic whose reflections on art, artists, and art criticism constitute an eclectic exploration of the ways in which art and art criticism have influenced contemporary thought and psychology. The book's investigation into the social impact of artwork also reflects on the inner life of the artist.

Book News Annotation:

Kuspit, an inspiring professor at SUNY, Stony Brook, a respected professional art critic, a student of Adorno, and one of the most educated people on earth is featured as an interviewee, as a reviewer of such artists as Sue Coe, Antonin Artaud, Pierre Bonnard and Andy Warhol, and, as cogitator of issues like the connection between philosophy and art (he has a doctorate in each), the psychoanalytic construction of the artist, the death of art, and art as craft. Here is Kuspit as interviewee on Cindy Sherman: "The self is not just a matter of role playing; it's a matter of conviction: the woman in Sherman's photograph has a false conviction about who she is. Of course, Sherman is not a thinker, she's just taking a position, which is all that her type of angry, ideological artist can do. Nonetheless, she has a certain point—if far from the whole one, as I said."
