The history of contemporary art, writes Heartney Postmodernisma contributing editor to Art in Americaoffers a tapestry of stories in an innovative, intellectually vigorous and superbly illustrated survey. In this era of anarchic pluralism, master narratives are inappropriate, and Heartney thus organizes her vividly written study thematically Art and Time, Art and Narrative rather than chronologically, and artists range from Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons and other high kitsch creators to the participatory works of artists such as Nam June Paik and Felix Gonzalez-Torres.

Heartney’s focus is sharp and selective, and her approach complexly postmodern: Participatory art, Heartney argues in her last chapter, is a direct challenge to cherished assumptions about the meaning of art, whose democratization may be the most significant force in art today.

This exceptional survey will have wide appeal—from the generalist to the scholar interested in a work that’s both perceptive and energetic. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

Please try again later. I am fleanor this book in a college course I am developing. I reviewed it and several other contemporary art books after this was suggested by my department chair who highly recommended it. He was so right! The writing style is clear and approachable, enjoyable to read, informative without being dry. I highly recommend it as a textbook for a contemporary art course or to read for pleasure todau you enjoy art. I would like to point out a few important things about this book that have proven valuable.

First, at the beginning of each chapter the is a brief but detailed and sensible history of the topic about to be discussed which helps gain a sense of context surrounding the issue at hand. Second, the images are of great quality and clarity.

Fantastic Book, I used in for a University College course, and it came in excellent condition. The book itself is full color and even though I already graduated, It has made an excellent collection as a coffee table book for my guests when I have people over! This book has most of the oft-referenced contemporary works you need to know about if you have an interest in the art world, and is well illustrated with large color photographs.


More importantly, the text is revelatory enough to be a textbook, yet is an entertaining, understandable read at a decent price. I had to buy this book for a Contemporary Art class at my University. Hoday gives great precedence to visual representations of the works she discusses as well as a very conclusive and insightful description.
