Synopsis

The most imitated guide to the art of our times. Updated twelfth editionContemporary art is “difficult” not only because most of it has nothing to do with figuration or narrative, but also because our times hold the absolute record of births and equally abrupt deaths of avant-garde experimentations, trends, and movements. In this famous guide to art from the post-war period to the present, Angela Vettese brings order to half a century of research, creating a clear handbook, the first and most widely appreciated, a map of contemporary art in which the different movements and theories are put into relationship with the frenetic activity of galleries, critics, museums, and artists: the famous “art system”.
