Editorial Reviews

Review

?This ambitious book will not satisfy those seeking either an admiring output or denouncement of her importance to art history. Rather, readers will find that the author has taken her career for a sprawling battlefield and attmpts to erect a surveying tower, allowing for somer perspective over the results of the critical combat of Krauss' postmodernism ...this engaing text gives one theortist's view. In trying to explain why critics are important and have influence, the author cuts thorugh the standard assertations about the power art reviews and the tastes of a select few have on the art market. While acknowledging this economic reality, Carriers analysis of art as writing in far more grand: if criticism has influence, it is in its ability to change our ways of thinking and seeing, our conception of nature. While perceiving flaws in much of her philosophy, the author admits that this is Krauss' legacy.?-tema celeste

Book Description

Studies the work of the most original and influential present-day art critic, tracing her development from her formalist writings in the 1960s through the post-structuralism of the current academic climate.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Steve on August 21, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This scanty little volume barely even begins to get to grips with the complexity of Rosalind Krauss's writing. It gives the impression of something David Carrier knocked off on his vacation, completely lacking in any rigourous engagement with Krauss, and full of vacuous comments like "Hmm, Rosalind Krauss is often controversial, but she is always interesting!" Well, thanks for that Professor Carrier, you should really do a lot better than this. Krauss is barely even quoted properly either, for some kind of legal reasons mentioned in the preface. This contributes to the lack of seriousness which characterises this slim and ultimately unhelpful study. And what's more, it costs $90!! You would be completely out of your mind to pay that kind of money for this book.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By John Adkins Richardson on March 13, 2003
Format: Hardcover
This very brief book gives one a clear understanding of major critical positions in art from the 1950s to the present while arguing that Rosalind Krauss is "our greatest philosophical art critic." Prof. Carrier is tolerant and understanding of every school of thought and gives all their due. If you are a person who is familiar with the major movements in modern art and keeps abreast of such magazines as "Artforum," the book is your cup of tea. It is not, however, for the beginner; this is criticism of criticism at its intellectual best.
Carrier surveys a wide range of opinions by major figures and does so with great economy and directness. His commentary is a demonstration of the way in which an open minded scholar can assess and discriminate among contesting views with candor but without prejudice.
