The Downtown Book. The New York Art Scene 1974-1984. Edited by Marvin J. Taylor.
by [New York Art Scene] .

Publisher Information:
Princeton University Press, Princeton: 2006.

A Fine tight copy in illustrated paperback binding. This book charts the intricate web of influences that shaped the generation of experimental and outsider artists working in Downtown New York during the crucial decade from 1974 to 1984. The book probes trends that arose in the 1970s and solidified New York's reputation as arbiter of the postmodern American avant-garde. By 1974, the hippie euphoria of the previous decade, with its optimism, free love, and paeans to personal fulfillment, was over. In its place emerged a new kind of experimentation--in art, sex, drugs, and rock and roll. The seven essays featured here examine from different perspectives how Downtown artists constantly pushed the limits of both traditional media and the art world.
