Product description

Review

" All of her observations are unfailingly original and provocative." - "Art Documentation"

" Krauss's essays, for their erudition, for their interpretations (particularly of artists whose work we thought we knew well), and for their siting of the art within the fullest possible range of discourses, stand as paradigmatic models for contemporary criticism." - J. T. Paoletti, Wesleyan University
