JenkinsDanto's richly digressive wit and learning keep us in tow. . . .In this period in which Art has evolved into Philosophy, Danto is producing a Criticism that at moments turns into a kind of Poetry.
— New York Newsday
In this collection of interconnected essays, Arthur C. Danto argues that Andy Warhol's Brillo Box of 1964 brought the established trajectory of Westen art to an end and gave rise to a pluralism which has changed the way art is made, perceived, and exhibited. Wonderfully illuminating and highly provocative, his essays explore how conceptions of artand resulting historical narrativesdiffer according to culture. They also grapple with the most challenging issues in art today, including censorship and state support of artists.
