Reviews

"Coffee tables everywhere are crying out for Phaidon latest tome, Art & Today. It's exactly what you want: a comprehensive overview of art from the Eighties onwards... Arresting images [...] and great prose."-GQ "A welcome overview of today's confused art world... A valuable reference book... Well-illustrated."-Wall Street Journa "The overarching point of Art & Today is to show how the certainties of modernism [...] gave way to the anarchy of post-modern, contemporary art... The book attempts to impose some welcome order and logic on the ensuing chaos (and 400 artists): no easy task when the history is happening around you. Heartney, however, proves up to the challenge: she has an accessible prose style, a profound grasp of art history, and a publishing company willing to include 560 illustrations."-Art World "The history of contemporary art, writes Heartney (Postmodernism), a contributing editor to Art in America, offers a tapestry of stories in an innovative, intellectually vigorous and superbly illustrated survey... Heartney's focus is sharp and selective, and her approach complexly postmodern: the ever-proliferating universe of Matthew Ritchie's installations are discussed in the context of Roland Barthes, Cindy Sherman's photographs as Bakhtinian carnival... This exceptional survey will have wide appeal... in a work that's both perceptive and energetic."-Publishers Weekly
