Promotional Information

Pamela Lee makes a major contribution to our understanding of art's globalization through her brilliant exploration of 'worlds' as a medium and 'worlding' as a process by which unruly networks of financial, political, and spectacular forces are crystallized as works of art. -- David Joselit, Carnegie Professor, History of Art, Yale University For those who want to chart the difference between the world and world markets, for those nostalgic for genuinely intellectual depth in art criticism, and for those wanting to understand the outer, digital limits of art, this book will be your guide. Forgetting the Art World sets a new stage -- a picture theory for art practice. -- Molly Nesbit, Professor of Art History, Vassar College Pamela Lee presents an exciting, highly original discussion of what constitutes an art world at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Forgetting the Art World examines not only the processes sustaining the reciprocal relationship between globalization and contemporary art, but also what the art world needs to forget in order to assume its current condition. The analysis is timely and provocative, and will be essential reading for anyone concerned with contemporary art. -- Alexander Alberro, author of Conceptual Art and the Politics of Publicity
