Art today

Taylor, Brandon (2004) Art today, London, UK; New York, USA, Laurence King; Prentice Hall, 256pp.

Record type: Book


The author provides a sophisticated and wide-ranging account of the development of advanced art in the West from the 1970s until the early 21st century. Locating painting, sculpture, alternative media, film, video and installation art of the period, the book provides readings and connections in American and West as well as Central and East European art, in addition to Asia and Africa. Highly illustrated throughout in colour, the book explains the fate of broader concepts such as modernism, late modernism and post-modernism, as well as fundamental categories such as the ready-made, the photograph, authorship, the role of the museum infrastructure, and the major art fairs, critics and publicity mechanisms. An indispensable guide to the period and its complexities and critical controversies.
