Art Since 1960



ISBN: 9780500204245 Category:

Michael Archer


A completely new section maps the developments in contemporary art since 2000 – including the increasing influence of social and political change, globalized culture, the art market and social media on artists working today – ensuring that Art Since 1960 remains an indispensable source of information on the evolution of art over the past five-and-a-half decades.

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. Art Since 1960 covers the key movements and styles of the period, from Pop, Minimalism and Conceptualism to Arte Povera, land and environmental art, photorealism, performance and graffiti art.
