Active Sights: Art as Social Interaction
By Van Laar, Timothy and Diepeveen, Leonard
Designed as a supplementary text, this brief, inexpensive book explores the purposes of contemporary art and the complex interactions between art, artist, and viewer. Active Sights looks especially at how artist and viewer belief systems and the social functions of art affect the ways in which contemporary art is seen. The text includes 31 full-page illustrations of contemporary art, including many pieces created as recently as five years ago.
