Description - A Companion to Contemporary Art Since 1945 by Amelia Jones

A Companion to Contemporary Art is a major survey covering
the major works and movements, the most important theoretical
developments, and the historical, social, political, and aesthetic
issues in contemporary art since 1945, primarily in the
Euro-American context.


Collects 27 original essays by expert scholars describing the
current state of scholarship in art history and visual studies, and
pointing to future directions in the field.

themes in the art of our time: politics, culture wars, public
space, diaspora, the artist, identity politics, the body, and
visual culture.

Offers synthetic analysis, as well as new approaches to,
debates central to the visual arts since 1945 such as those
addressing formalism, the avant-garde, the role of the artist,
technology and art, and the society of the spectacle.
