Lippard skillfully shows the 'primal urge' is a core issue in 'post-modernist' art. . . it is invaluable as an insider's synthesis capturing the consciousness of vanguard art in the recent past. -- Village Voice
Lucy Lippard has skillfully blended sun, moon, myth, and ritual in a search for the meaning and social function of art. -- Gerald Hawkins, author of Stonehenge Decoded and Mindsteps to the Cosmos
The book's strength lies in the depth of the author's commitment--her dual loyalty to tradition and modernity and her effort to restore the broken connection between the two. -- New York Times Book Review
