Sticky Sublime by Bill Beckley

Book Description

Combining classic theory with current discourse surrounding art history's infamous "S" word, this collection contains some of today's most highly esteemed critics', artists' and poets' approaches to the sticky subject of the contemporary Sublime. The companion anthology to "Uncontrollable Beauty", this volume pushes the polemic on beauty even further, speculating where the beautiful and the sublime will be situated in a post-modern, new-technology atmosphere. The collection includes essays by such creators and critics as Harold Bloom, Dave Hickey, Barbara Maria Stafford, Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe, Carter Ratcliff, Wendy Steiner, Thomas McEvilley and Anthony Hayden-Guest, many of which were composed expressly for this anthology.
