Synopsis: By Libby Lumpkin.
From the Inside Flap: In nine observant, quirky, and irreverently spirited essays, Libby Lumpkin suggests that ostensibly deep problems in art theory are often simple problems of design. She constructs condensed histories of the Smiley Face, the Prohibition Symbol, and the Showgirl. She examines America's discomfort with the world of chance and explores the adobe villages of post-atomic New Mexico as national repositories for the popular idea of redemptive nature. In the process, she illustrates the dangers of grounding contemporary art theory in the Antique opposition between the liberal and practical arts and advocates a feminist art grounded in power rather than virtue.
