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.
MySearchLab is a part of the Kalb program. Research and writing tools, including access to academic journals, help students explore contemporary art in even greater depth. To provide students with flexibility, students can download the eText to a tablet using the free Pearson eText app.

Peter R. Kalb is the Cynthia L. and Theodore S. Berenson Professor of Contemporary Art at Brandeis University where he teaches modern and contemporary art history. Before preparing Art Since 1980 he was the revising author of the Fifth Edition of H.H. Arnason History of Modern Art and the author of High Drama: The New York Cityscapes of Georgia O’Keeffe and Margaret Bourke-White. His scholarship addresses issues in twentieth- and twenty-first-century art and criticism and he serves as the Boston-based corresponding editor for Art in America.Review:
“The writing is clear, artists are well chosen, and the chapter organization is logical. . . . The author strikes an admirable balance between a social history of institutions and contexts, and attention to individual aesthetic choices.”
-Bill Anthes, Pitzer College
“A quite complete and detailed survey of contemporary art, that . . . goes into substantial detail on a number of world contemporary artists.”
- Ellen Hoobler, Columbia University
“A good overview of late twentieth-century art, organized thematically and built of short discussions of individual artists. The way that the text is primarily organized around short discussions of individual artists or organizations is effective."
-Sarah Hollenberg, University of Utah
“Excellent research; great insights and surprisingly comprehensive.”
-Doreen Maloney, University of Kentucky
