sinopsis

The idea of contemporary art sometimes allows us to pretend we have made a clean break with the past. In The Perpetual Guest, poet and critic Barry Schwabsky demonstrates that any robust understanding of arts present must also account for the ongoing life and changing fortunes of its past. In surveying the art world of this past decade, Schwabsky attends not only to its most significant newer facesamong them, Kara Walker, Thomas Hirschhorn, Ai Weiwei, Chris Ofili, and Lorna Simpsonbut their forebears, both recent (Jeff Wall, Nancy Spero, Dan Graham, Cindy Sherman) and more distant (Veláquez, Manet, Matisse, and the portraitists of the Renaissance). The art critic, Schwabsky writes, formalizes and deliberately exemplifies the role of the spectator who realizes the artists work, not by leaving it just as it is, but by adding something to it, making a personal contribution. Despite the hysterical pronouncements of criticisms demise, Schwabskys rich and subtle considerations of arts complexly intertwined traditions are an indispensable contribution to understanding our present moment.
