Description
In the mid-1980s the regular sprouting of new art movements, the creative upwellings that had driven modern art since the 19th century, finally went dormant, sputtering out with a last few half-hearted labels ("pattern painting," "neo-geo," "commodity art"). But this was not the end of art history—far from it. This abundant and diverse catalog—stuffed with hundreds of color photos, and sporting a green perforated jacket over a pink laminated cover—responds to the unique landscape of contemporary art with an innovative approach to art history. Assembled and written by eight prominent curators, it describes the significance of 200 pivotal artworks from the past 25 years.

"The reader is tempted with an array of dazzling images and supporting essays to tease out their own grand narratives. Whether you are an art historian, collector or a casual art peruser, this survey of the past 25 years from a curatorial perspective is certainly a feast for the eyes."—Huffington Post

"[This book] not only addresses the obstacle of pinning down the nebulous term 'contemporary art,' but also manages to pull off a legible presentation of it in a single book.... Ultimately, Defining Contemporary Art functions as both a demonstration of contemporary curation and a poly-contextualized historical view."—Art Log
