A Forest Of Signs: Art in the Crisis of Representation
by Richard Koshalek
Publisher's Description
The thread of representation ties together the work of the thirty artists discussed here, encompassing such issues as allegory, appropriation, commodification, the role of the artist, and the functions of authorship and originality in vesting meaning in art. Much of the work is provocative, challenging the way that we look at art, the we talk about it, where and when we see it, and how we buy it. A 60 page portfolio of the artists' works, designed by the artists, accompanies a selection of original and interesting texts.
