'Archer's admirable overview treats the history of art of this period in a manner which does justice to its diversity and its complexity of inter-relations, between different aspects of artistic practice and the actualities of the world in which they operate... a brave and intelligent attempt to live up to its implications' - Art Monthly
From the Back Cover
During the past forty years, profound and multifarious changes have taken place in art: stylistic divergence has become the prevailing characteristic. This intelligently argued survey explores the perennial question - art's relationship to everyday life - which links Pop, Minimal, Conceptual, Land, Performance, Body and Installation art and myriad developments in the work of Warhol, Beuys, Bourgeois and the many other artists whose works are discussed and illustrated. With a timeline that shows movements, key figures and important world events at a glance, and a full bibliography, Art Since 1960
provides a unique and indispensable overview and source of information on the evolution of art over the past four decades.
