Contemporary art: art since 1970
Author Brandon Taylor charts the ideas and practices of new art across a wide international spectrum. From minimalism and conceptualism to video and film, from painting and sculpture to performance and installation, this intriguing book shows how advanced art has continued to provoke and perplex a fascinated public. 'Contemporary Art' illustrates how the art of the last three decades has been energized not merely by changing technologies or art-making, but by the spread of new museum architecture, by the voice of the critic, and in recent times by the activity of the powerful international curator. Reviewing the major controversies of the period, it also includes a discussion of the impact of the internet and digital art.
