At the Tate Modern the conundrum
  • Greenbergs narrative comes to an end with Pop
    It came to an end when art came to an end, when
    art, as it were, recognized there was no special
    way a work of art had to be. - Arthur Danto
  • After the End of Art, 1997
  • Is an endless playing with the definition of art
    all that art now has to offer?
  • - Charles Harrison
  • Conceptual Art (Themes)

Joan Brown c.1960
  • Like other artists of San Francisco's Beat
    movement, Brown's work of the late 1950s and
    early 1960s incorporates everyday materials
    assembled into new and provocative forms. "There
    was a rebellion against the slicker materials
    and a delight taken in using rattier materials.
    The rattier the better. Here, Brown has covered
    a wooden armature with fur from an old fur coat
    to depict an oversized rat with a menacing tail -
    an image from one of her dreams. BAMPFA
