Product Description

Review

"A marvelous book. . . . Nothing short of a reading of the whole can provide even a faint suggestion of its liveliness or the range of ideas it covers."--Alfred Frankenstein, "ARTnews

From the Inside Flap

"Many artists, curators, and cultural critics will be interested in the republication of this anthology since the movement it gives contour to has had a tremendous influence on the contemporary art of the last 25 years, and on the critical discussion surrounding the concept of postmodernism."Alexander Alberro, coauthor of Tracing Cultures"

Format: Hardcover
This book proved an interesting and useful insight into the developments in art in the late sixties. A good interpretation of the changing values of 'new' sculpture, emerging with minimalism, land art, and conceptual art.

I hope you'll ignore the negative reviews of this wonderful book. It's full of hundreds of the most thought provoking, startling, original, (intentionally) hilarious, inspiring ideas I have ever read. Get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars An important contibution to modernist aesthetics. 15 Jan. 1999
By David F. Place - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I first read this book about twenty years ago. I am glad to see that there is a new edition. It had a major impact on my development as an artist. The author discusses the trend called "conceptual art" which flowered in the time period mentioned in the title (late 60's through early 70's). These artists rejected the craft of art and the creation of objects themselves seeking instead something more fundamental. Ms. Lippard calls this "resonance" and uses descriptions of various pieces to explore this concept. Though "conceptual art" has long since passed by, the analysis in this book is still current and applies more than ever in our "post-modernist" period.

5.0 out of 5 stars As time goes by 14 May 2007
By Akiko Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I lived through this era and my original 1972 copy is well used and full of loose pages. If you want to find out how the tracking of turtles is art, or how Lawrence Weiner came to write phrases on walls as his art work or simply how the synergy of people working with ideas about process as an artmaking technique came to rule this is an valuable piece of first hand reporting. Looking to explain Sol Le Witt to my college students on his recent death this book gave me samples of his interactive drawings they could try.
