POWER: ITS MYTHS AND MORES IN AMERICAN ART, 1961-1991. Holliday T. Day et al. Indianapolis Museum of Art, 1991. Distributed by Indiana University Press, Bloomington. 160 pp. with 127 ills. (48 col.). 29 x 24 cm. LC 91-71454 ISBN 0253316588 In English.
Examining the varied ways in which art reflects power relationships in contemporary American society, especially with regard to gender, race and class, this provocative catalogue surveys some 90 paintings, sculptures, installations and photographs produced over the past three decades by 28 prominent artists, including Warhol, Lichtenstein, Judd, Acconci, Nauman, Longo, Holzer, Sherman and Koons. Provides brief commentaries on the featured artists, a reprinted text analyzing Minimalism as an authoritarian aesthetic, and three substantial essays that examine artistic expressions of power from historical and cultural perspectives, exploring the imagery and styles employed to articulate or challenge established social values.
