Art Since 1980 (paperback) Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Art Since 1980 charts the story of art in contemporary global culture while holding up a mirror to our society.

With over 300 pictures of painting, photography and sculpture, as well as installation, performance and video art, we are led on an illuminating journey via the individuals and communities who have shaped art internationally. The political and cultural transformations of the early 1980s developed a new era of accord between communist states and western-style economics.

The art world has since been reconceived and today we see record-breaking sales of contemporary art and a dramatic rise in the number of students taking courses in the visual and performing arts. Kalb approaches art from multiple angles, addressing issues of artistic production, display, critical reception and social content.

Alongside his analysis of specific works of art, he also builds a framework for readers to increase their knowledge and enhance critical and theoretical thinking.
