"What is contemporary art? A review of two books by Terry Smith'
McNamara, Andrew E. (2012) "What is contemporary art? A review of two books by Terry Smith'. Australian and New Zealand Journal of Art, 12, pp. 252-258.
What is contemporary art and what are the key components of contemporary culture? This review demonstrates where Terry Smith provides important answers to this question. The books thus help to improve understanding of how art has changed in recent decades and how a global culture now shapes its parameters. This review does not however concur that Smith provides a convincing case for a complete cultural paradigm transformation.
