Description

This glossary is a guide to the language of current theory and criticism of visual arts and culture. It includes over 400 terms or phrases that have recently entered discourse on the visual arts. Since the early 1970s, the vocabulary used to discuss the visual arts has expanded radically, leaving many teachers, students, artists, and critics without a clear understanding of the terms employed in cultural discussions and debate. Terms can be accessed alphabetically or thematically, and the significant cross referencing makes this an easy dictionary to use.
