Reviews

"This is an excellent book for understanding the post-modern art scene and how the next generation of visual artists might proceed." Tampa Tribune "Kuspit's view is persuasive...The End of Art didn't make my mind up for me; rather, it opened up room for debate with artist friends and fellow gallery hoppers about the definition of art, whether it can be judged according to a universal standard and where it's going. It made me more aware of my powers of perception and my power as a perceiver, and encouraged me to seek out art that pleases me, for whatever reason." The Nation "This is an excellent book for understanding the post-modern art scene and how the next generation of visual artists might proceed." Tampa Tribune
