The premise of this book is that artists use their art to think about their experience; it gives them a language in which to work out a way of existing in the world. So the front and back of the cover are illustrated with some of the great artists featured in the book doing their work.
1. Yoko Ono in the first performance of Cut Piece, Yamaichi Hall, Kyoto, 1964
Fineberg's new edition is the book to learn modern art from--many times over. No other study is as truly comprehensive. Always sensitive to the political context of modern and contemporary art, Fineberg resists playing ideological favorites. Every artist, every medium, receives a sympathetic, informative view in accessible prose that never dodges the inherent complexities. Follow Fineberg as he moves from accounts of the careers of Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock to the fantasy world of Maya Deren's filmmaking, to Alfredo Jaar's manipulations of public information, to Kerry James Marshall's drawings of black superhero comics, to the cultural appropriations of Nikki S. Lee, and on and on. It's all there, and it's all succinctly, yet deeply, authoritatively, considered. --- Richard Shiff, The University of Texas at Austin
The great value of Fineberg’s account of the art of the past seventy years is its attentiveness to what happens for artists in the course of their work, how the play of individual circumstances makes breakthrough moments possible, and how the life of art is always as well an experiential record of ways of living. ---Franklin "Buzz" Spector, Washington University in St. Louis
