Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A welcome if only partially successful introduction to contemporary art in America, this companion to a PBS series presents four essays that explore the work of both established (e.g., Richard Serra, Sally Mann) and emerging artists by way of selected themes ("Place," "Spirituality," "Identity"). Curators at leading arts institutions have contributed the compelling essays, which relate the artists' works to the concerns of everyday life; a piece called "Consumption" is especially trenchant. Throughout, the writing is thoughtful and mostly jargon free, and the fine color photographs are often full page. Unfortunately, one of the strengths of the television series the opportunity to listen to artists discuss their work and to visit them in their studios and homes is absent. Furthermore, while the title suggests that emerging trends will be considered, the book is closer to a survey of the last 25 years, although it is more adventurous than most. And there are no bibliographies or listings of museums or galleries of contemporary art for an enthusiastic reader to explore further. Recommended for larger public library collections and art museum or art school libraries with volumes on arts education or curatorial studies.
