Abstract:

Originally delivered as the prestigious 'Mellon Lectures on the Fine Arts' in 1995, 'After the End of Art' remains a classic of art criticism and philosophy, and continues to generate heated debate for contending that art ended in the 1960s. Arthur Danto, one of the best-known art critics of his time, presents radical insights into art’s irrevocable deviation from its previous course and the decline of traditional aesthetics. He demonstrates the necessity for a new type of criticism in the face of contemporary art’s wide-open possibilities. This 'Princeton Classics' edition includes a new foreword by philosopher Lydia Goehr.
