Providing a cogent examination of the recent rise of installation art, this catalogue features excellent pictorial documentation of a diverse array of innovative works by eleven North American artists, loosely linked by their use of recontextualized commonplace objects to form commentaries on social values. A substantial essay traces contemporary art's radical transformation of the landscape tradition, examines the dissolution of distinctions between high art and the material forms of everyday life, and discusses the exhibited artists as inheritors of the principles fundamental to Dada, Fluxus, Arte Povera and Conceptual art.
