Editorial Reviews


“Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.”  (Choice, 1 August 2013)


“With its rich roster of art historians, critics, and curators, Contemporary Art: 1989 to the Present provides the essential chart of this new field. “
- Hal Foster, Princeton University

“Featuring a diverse and exciting line-up of international critics, curators and art historians, Contemporary Art: 1989 to the Present is an indispensable introduction to the major issues shaping the study of contemporary art.”
- Pamela Lee, Stanford University

“In Contemporary Art: 1989 to the Present, a new generation of critics and scholars comes of age.  Full of fresh ideas, engaged writing, and provocative proposals about the art of the current moment and the immediate past, this book is sure to become the standard, 'go to' text in the field of contemporary art history.”
- Richard Meyer, author of What was Contemporary Art?

4 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Wayne Dynes on November 9, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Even though I have made my living in the world of art education, I find myself puzzled by today's art. Regrettably, I did not get the answers I was hoping to find by reading this essay collection. Much of the writing is opaque, with the authors apparently carrying on conversations with others of like mind. There are no sustained analyses of particular artists, and no illustrations. A plus is that the book offers discussions of art in India, Pakistan, and Brazil. Yet these presentations are not very enlightening either.
