Blasted Allegories makes available the best and most representative examples of artists' writings from the past ten years, an era marked by such pluralism and eclecticism that the voice of the artist may be the clearest one to listen to.
The writings, which included both criticism and fiction, have been selected both for their intrinsic, quality and their usefulness; to an understanding of contemporary art.
Among the artists represented are Laurie Anderson, Eric Bogosian, Spalding Gray, Theresa Hak Kyng Cha, Dan Graham, Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger, Matt Mullican, Richard Prince, Martha Roster, Allan Sekula, and William Wegman.
