Summary
"Arthur C. Danto's five volumes of review essays form a chronicle of the art world in our time, and a running appraisal of the great variety of significant work made in our midst." "In this new book, Danto shows how work that bridges the gap between art and life is now the definitive work of our time: Damien Hirst's arrays of skeletons and anatomical models, Barbara Kruger's tchotchke-ready slogans, Renee Cox's nude portrait of herself presiding at the Last Supper. To the obvious question - is this stuff really art? - Danto replies with an enthusiastic yes, explaining, with a philosopher's clarity and an art lover's delight, how these "unnatural wonders" show us who we are."--Jacket
