The first ever clear, extensive, concise and informative account of conceptual art.
In this new English edition of the handbook over sixty curators, art historians, and artists take a critical look at the theme of the significance and potential of public art.
Lucy R. Lippard documents the chaotic network of ideas that has been labeled conceptual art. The book is arranged as an annotated chronology into which is woven a rich collection of original documents–including texts by and taped discussions among and with the artists involved.
