Item description for Conventions in Contemporary Art: Lectures and Debates Witte de With 2001 by Camiel van Winkel, Koen Brams, Anthony Dunne, Charlotte Huygens, Alan Murray, Fiona Raby, Siebe Thissen & Els Van Der Plas...
Commonplaces flood the contemporary art scene: art is interdisciplinary, it does not require theory, it exercises a salutary influence on public space, the curator is a superstar, non-Western art is a whim of fashion, design is a hip kind of art, and so on. Conventions in Contemporary Art, the latest series of lectures at the Witte de With in Amsterdam, critically examines these clichs through essays by Catherine David, Anthony Dunne, Fiona Raby, Bart Lootsma, Camiel van Winkel, and others. Edited by Valentijn Byvanck.
Essays by Iwona Blazwick, Catherine David, Anthony Dunne, Fiona Raby, Bart Lootsma, Camiel van Winkel, Jeroen Boomgaard, Koen Brams, Siebe Thissen, Alan Murray, Janneke Wesseling, Charlotte Huygens, Kitty Zijlmans and Els Van Der Plas.
