Art Speak: A Guide to Contemporary Ideas, Movements, and Buzzwords
by Robert Atkins
Publisher's Description
"Nonplussed by Neo-Geo? Can't tell simulation from semiotics? Forgotten who were the Hairy Who? This is the book for you! . . . These mini-essays on the "isms" and buzzwords of postwar art are written with wit and common sense by the astute critic Robert Atkins--a regular contributor to the Village Voice . . . . Thirty black and white illustrations enliven the text, and there's a fold-out "ArtChart" at the back, with 24 full-color reproductions representing the major movements of the last 40 years."--the publisher.
