Synopsis :

Explains why innovation and controversy are valued in the arts, bringing together philosophy, art theory, and many examples. This work discusses blood, beauty, culture, money, sex, web sites, and research on the brain's role in perceiving art. It is suitable for the public, introductory students, and teachers in the arts.

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)
