Descriptions du produit

Art on the Edge and over Linda Weintraub recognizes that art at the end of the 20th century changes too quickly and is too multifaceted to be quickly and easily understood. Here she explains the intractably avant-garde art of the 1970s, 80s, and 90s by searching for art's meaning within the context of popular culture and the common trends that have led to new forms of artistic expression.

An OK overview, but superficial 27 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I guess this book is meant as a real "intro" text, but if you do know something about this art, it seems pretty lite. Clearly, lots of people like it, but Weintraub seems to bend so far over to make complex work accessible that she really over-simplifines. And the "art" in the book is so scattered and uneven, you don't get any deeper sense of what is going on, what the historical context of any of this might be.
Granted, there aren't many intro texts on recent art. So if this is one of the "better" ones, it's mostly for lack of competition. I wish there was some accessible middle ground between pop/gossip texts and academic tomes. This feels like it's written from someone really distant to the work, who's not always that well-informed.

Very Dissapointing 25 décembre 2009
Par D. Olsen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
A poor text. The author takes an uncritical and overly romantic stance on the various artist's work. While the artists included represent some of the very best examples of avante-garde practices spanning three decades, including several to whom I had would not have otherwise been exposed, the write ups read like publicity for their shows rather than critical analysis of the work. Most disappointing was the structure. Each artist is pigeon-holed into the demographic category they fall within, e.g. Felix Gonzales-Torres: A Latin, Homosexual Man. While I respect the effort to include a diverse range of artists, the demographics appear to be placed above the significance of their body of work. A difficult issue to address, and this book does so poorly.

Almost a bull's-eye 30 novembre 1998
Par syrett23@hotmail.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Anyone who wants to become familiar with intricacies of what can be the confusing world of post-modern art should read this book. The author does an excellent job of presenting an interesting cross-section of significant and fascinating collection of atypical artists. Pretty much every artist who is included has done their share of expanding the contemporary definition of Art in the Western and Non-western tradition. Over all, this compendium of essays does much to open the door to widen the reader's perspective on what art can do. The one aspect of this book that is troublesome is that the author often seems to focus on only one or two aspects of an artist's works, a habit that is frustrating at best and misleading at worst. While doing outside research on one of the artists included, Mel Chin, I was convinced there were two artists with the same name, as the perspective provided in the book did not prepare me for the artist's full range of activities. Still, this complaint should not stop an interested party from purchasing the book. I for one did not feel my money ill-spent.

One of the few books I still remember from college... 27 septembre 2009
Par ireview4u - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I just stayed up all night just trying to find this book again! I had to have it for an Art History course in college years ago, and out of all the textbooks I had and all the memorizing I had to do, the only art history I can remember today always traces back to this book. While other "art history" type books focus on bombarding you with a bunch of names with dates and titles of work (along with other insignificant information), this book focuses on the concept of the work from some of the most stand-out, atypical artists of this time period. Most importantly you really see the artists' work from the perspective of the creator and get a true sense of the artist's most intimate thoughts. If you're interested in sociology or psychology, this is especially the book for you.

If you're looking for in-depth artist biographies or need to do a research paper on the contemporary art movement, you can't rely on just this alone. But the author does an excellent job on getting straight to the point and providing you with just enough information and selected works that embody the overall essence of the artist (and the artists, collectively, give you a sense of what was going on during the 70s and 80s).

If there was a book like this for every art movement in history, I would buy all of them! Granted, some movements are more interesting than others, but this format is so easy to learn from. You remember works and artists first, then naturally remember the general time and movement, rather than memorizing and forgetting titles and dates with no real significance. I wouldn't call myself a history lover but I'm definitely interested more in people, and with this book, a connection is made between the art and the artist, and a deeper understanding is made about both. I'm so glad I found this and I'm definitely buying it to add back into my collection--my first "art history" book I actually like and WANT in my bookshelf!

THE BEST BOOK FOR TEACHING ART OF THE '70s TO '90s 30 septembre 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I have tried out a lot of books for teaching college courses about art of the '70s, '80s, '90s...this new book by Linda Weintraub...is the best for teaching I have found thus far...Weintraub is artist- and reader-friendly. She imagines intelligent readers outside the narrow borders of the art world...I find her emphasis on the artist's point of view a refreshing antidote to all those other "histories" in which the artists' voices have disappeared. Jean Robertson, New Art Examiner
