Sexed Universals in Contemporary Art

"The past, present, and future of art and art culture collide in this interdisciplinary study that strives to find new, universal meaning in a diverse art world. Using examples from contemporary painting, sculpture, film, and the digital arts, Penny Florence examines the link between the “grand narratives” of modernism and today’s culture of difference. Laced throughout with humorous and brilliant insights, Sexed Universals in Contemporary Art clears new philosophical and aesthetic ground by embracing the new without discarding the old."
