Overview

McEvilley (art criticism and writing, School of Visual Arts, New York City) presents revised versions of essays published between 1981 and 2002, along with three major new essays that introduce and bring them together. Focusing on the origins of anti-art, and the development of performance and conceptual art, the essays trace artistic movements from Duchamp and Dada to modernism and Yves Klein. Chapters on conceptual art survey William Anastasi, Francois Morellet, Bernar Venet, John Baldessari, and Francis Alys; those on performance art detail the work of Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Marina Abramovic and Ulay, James Lee Byars, and Brian O'Doherty.
