Collection of essays in which McEvilley explores the ideas and legacy of Conceptual and Performance Art. Following an overview of Modernism and Marcel Duchamp’s influence, a chapter on Yves Klein sets the tone for surveys of Conceptual Art and its practitioners, including Bernar Venet, John Baldessari and Francis Alys. McEvilley then gives equal focus to Performance Art with chapters on Andy Warhol, Marina Abramović and Ulay, among others. The volume ends with an examination of the success and current position of ‘Anti-Art’.
