Endorsements to come from Linda Nochlin, New York University, and Nick Serota (maybe Marina Warner) Art has always been argued over, never more than in our own times. Today, the parameters of art are being redefined by new ideas about what really constitutes art, by new technologies, by new cultural perceptions of race and gender, by new theories about the role of the artist and by a changing museum culture. Art in Question explores the role of contemporary art within today's wider visual culture. This richly illustrated book brings together a series of specially commissioned interviews with leading, international artists, art historians, theorists and curators: Bill Viola; Griselda Pollock; Richard Wentworth; Barbara Kruger; Sadie Plant; Okwui Enwezor; Martin Kemp; WJT Mitchell; Hani Rashid; Art in Question will be valuable to anyone with an interest in contemporary art, as well as to students and teachers of art and design, art history and theory, cultural studies and museum studies.
