9780521530873: Conceptual Art: Theory, Myth, and Practice

Conceptual art consisted of a loose collection of related practices that emerged worldwide during the 1960s and 1970s. This collection of essays offers readers a wealth of new research on the earliest international exhibitions of Conceptual art; new interpretations of some of its most important practitioners; and a reconsideration of the relationship between Conceptual art and the intellectual and social context of the 1960s and 1970s. Of special note are the contributions that focus on the explicitly social and political aspirations of this influential avant-garde artistic practice.

About the Author:

Michael Corris has exhibited in galleries and museums internationally since 1972 and is represented in public and private collections in North America and Europe. His writings on art and art theory have been published widely: in artist-run publications (Art-Language, The Fox, and Red-Herring), scholarly journals (Word and Image, Art Journal, and Art History), and the international art press (Artforum, Art+Text, and Art Monthly, among others). Currently, Dr Corris is the editor for a new series of monographs on art since the 1980s (forthcoming 2013), continues to work with colleagues on the editorial board of Transmission Annual (which he co-founded in 2008 with Jaspar Joseph-Lester and Sharon Kivland), and in 2014 will assume the post of book reviews editor for the College Art Association's contemporary art publication, Art Journal.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. 251 x 178 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Conceptual art was a loose collection of related practices that emerged worldwide during the 1960s and 1970s. It continues to be relevant to contemporary art and remains a lively topic of debate. The most striking features of conceptual art are its de-emphasis on the importance of the art object and its understanding of the role of language in shaping our knowledge of the world and our conception of art. This collection of essays deals with the issues that animated Conceptual art in the anglophone world. It offers readers a wealth of research on the earliest international exhibitions of Conceptual art, interpretation of some of its most important practitioners, and a consideration of the relationship between conceptual art and the intellectual and social context of the 1960s and 1970s. Of special note are the contributions focusing on the explicitly social and political aspirations of this influential avant-garde artistic practice. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521530873
