Focusing on key theoretical and aesthetic issues in contemporary art in cultural, historical, and socio-political contexts - including media, architecture, postmodernism, multiculturalism, identity politics, censorship, AIDS, postcolonialism, globalization, technology, and spectatorship - this volume brings together a broad selection of contributions that map out the role that critical theory has played in contemporary art." "This anthology mixes established and emergent art voices, including scholars, curators, critics, and artists. Interdisciplinary in approach and drawing on a wide variety of sources, Theory in Contemporary Art since 1985 brings together scholarly essays, artists' statements, and art reproductions to capture the vibrancy and dissonance that defines today's art scene."--Jacket." ;
