This accessible overview is invaluable for the way in which it makes coherent sense of the often-bewildering diversity of styles, forms, media, techniques, and agendas that proliferate in contemporary art. Extensively revised and expanded since it was first published, Michael Archer's acclaimed book is brought fully up to date in this new edition through the addition of a new chapter on developments in contemporary art since 2000. Art Since 1960 remains an indispensable source of information on the evolution of art over the past five-and-a-half decades.

'Archer's admirable overview treats the history of art of this period in a manner which does justice to its diversity and its complexity of inter-relations, between different aspects of artistic practice and the actualities of the world in which they operate... a?brave and intelligent attempt to live up to its implications' - Art Monthly
