Overview

Examines contemporary art from its roots to the present day

 

Art Since 1980: Charting the Contemporary presents a chronological survey from the late 20th century into the early 21st century. This title is built around short discussions on individual artists. Author Peter Kalb maintains a balance between a social history of institutions and contexts, and attention to individual aesthetic choices. Works cited come from these fields: painting, photography, and sculpture, plus installation, performance, and video art.
