Summary

In this fourth volume of the Art of the Twentieth Century series, the contributors address a fascinating variety of themes relating to art from the 1960s to the end of the century--the period of ''postmodernism.'' The first of the book's seven chapters deals with the emergence in the 1960s of what has been called an ''expanded field'' for art activity. Other chapters discuss the consequences of Conceptual art for notions of the aesthetic; the Post-Conceptual practice of painting; practices of Post-Conceptual photography; video, performance, and installation art; and women's practice and the question of gendered and nongendered objects. The final chapter explores the globalization of art at the end of the twentieth century. Full color illustrations are featured throughout the volume. Gill Perry is senior lecturer in art history, The Open University. Paul Wood is senior lecturer in art history, The Open University.
