9780192804631: Art Theory: A Very Short Introduction

In today's art world many strange, even shocking, things qualify as art.

She discusses blood, beauty, culture, money, museums, sex, and politics, clarifying contemporary and historical accounts of the nature, function, and interpretation of the arts. Freeland also propels us into the future by surveying cutting-edge web sites, alongside the latest research on the brain's role in perceiving art. This clear, provocative book engages with the big debates surrounding our responses to art and is an invaluable introduction to anyone interested in thinking about art.

Revue de presse :

Mouthwatering design-compact, colorful, sturdy. Can travel in one's pocket. ( Walks of Art, Oluwatoyin Vincent Adepoju)

Admirable for its compactness, reader-friendliness, this 'very short introduction' is nevertheless notable for its wide-ranging discussion of matters germane to the field of contemporary art. Should be a treat for the art-lovers amongst the academics. ( U.S.I. Journal)
