Art Since 1960 (World of Art)

Art Since 1960 (World of Art)

by Michael Archer (Author)


This intelligently argued, critical overview is invaluable for the way in which it reveals and makes coherent sense of the often bewildering diversity of styles, forms, media, techniques and agendas that proliferate in contemporary art. Now revised and expanded, Michael Archer's acclaimed book is brought right up to date with discussions about the comprehensive globalization of art since the 1990s, which has been reflected in the growth of the exhibition calendar and the number of new museums opening around the world. With over thirty new illustrations and an updated timeline and bibliography, Art Since 1960 provides an indispensable survey and source of information on the evolution of art over the past four decades.

Media Reviews
'Archer's admirable overview treats the history of art of this period in a manner which does justice to its diversity and its complexity of inter-relations, between different aspects of artistic practice and the actualities of the world in which they operate... a brave and intelligent attempt to live up to its implications' - Art Monthly
