Conceptualism and the Political Referent in Contemporary Art

Nizan Shaked

Published by Manchester University Press

Rethinking Arts Histories MUP

Traces two intersecting trajectories in American art. It shows how rights-based 1960s politics and the identity politics of the 1970s influenced the development of Conceptual art (with a capital 'C') into the diverse set of practices generally characterised as conceptualist (with a lower-case 'c').
