Description

Examines contemporary art from its roots to the present day

Art Since 1980: Charting the Contemporary presents a chronological survey from the late 20th century into the early 21st century. This title is built around short discussions on individual artists. Author Peter Kalb maintains a balance between a social history of institutions and contexts, and attention to individual aesthetic choices. Works cited come from these fields: painting, photography, and sculpture, plus installation, performance, and video art.

MySearchLab is a part of the Kalb program. Research and writing tools, including access to academic journals, help students explore contemporary art in even greater depth. To provide students with flexibility, students can download the eText to a tablet using the free Pearson eText app.
