After the End of Art : Contemporary Art and the Pale of History - Updated Edition Paperback / softback
Part of the Princeton Classics series
Originally delivered as the prestigious Mellon Lectures on the Fine Arts in 1995, After the End of Art remains a classic of art criticism and philosophy, and continues to generate heated debate for contending that art ended in the 1960s.
Arthur Danto, one of the best-known art critics of his time, presents radical insights into art's irrevocable deviation from its previous course and the decline of traditional aesthetics.
He demonstrates the necessity for a new type of criticism in the face of contemporary art's wide-open possibilities.
This Princeton Classics edition includes a new foreword by philosopher Lydia Goehr.
