What Is Contemporary Art? TERRY SMITH. The University of Chicago Press. The arguments offered in this book have been shaped by direct encounters with contemporary art: in discussions with artists as they planned upcoming projects; with works of art standing fresh in studios and at their first presentation; while involved in the planning of new museums and while visiting exhibitions at established ones; while doing the rounds of the galleries in many cities, visiting.

Smith contends that the global condition contemporaine in art is defined by four concerns, which he briefly notes as ‘time . A first proposal to theorize this ‘contemporary art’ is careful not to be overly definitive. Yet this book does make a number of themes explicit.

Smith contends that the global condition contemporaine in art is defined by four concerns, which he briefly notes as ‘time, place, mediation, and mood’ (. 96). Evocative as these labels are, they become more interesting as they are defined more precisely through, for example ‘freedom within mediation’ or ‘self and strangeness’ (. 35).

Terry Smith is the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Contemporary Art History and Theory at the University of Pittsburgh. His many books include The Architecture of Aftermath, also published by the University of Chicago Press. What is Contemporary Art? far surpasses other books that have sought to grapple with the question. Terry Smith's voice is strong and convincing, his arguments are clear yet subtle, and his descriptions of the many biennials and artworks he addresses are invaluable.

Who gets to say what counts as contemporary art? Artists, critics, curators, gallerists, auctioneers, collectors, or the public? Revealing how all of these groups have shaped today’s multifaceted definition, Terry Smith brilliantly shows that an historical approach offers the best answer to the question: What is Contemporary Art?

Smith argues that the most recognizable kind is characterized by a return to mainstream modernism in the work of such artists as Richard Serra and Gerhard Richter, as well as the retro-sensationalism of figures like Damien Hirst and Takashi Murakami. At the same time, Smith reveals, postcolonial artists are engaged in a different kind of practice: one that builds on local concerns and tackles questions of identity, history, and globalization. A younger generation embodies yet a third approach to contemporaneity by investigating time, place, mediation, and ethics through small-scale, closely connective art making. Inviting readers into these diverse yet overlapping art worlds, Smith offers a behind-the-scenes introduction to the institutions, the personalities, the biennials, and of course the works that together are defining the contemporary. The resulting map of where art is now illuminates not only where it has been but also where it is going.

Having studied Fine Art at University which included an intense Art History component, I found that I have been quite comfortable with most History prior to Duchampian Theory... then I get a little confused. Terry Smith goes to great depths in making this possibly confusing subject relatively easy to understand.

Within his essay he divides contemporary art up into three components: mainstream Modernism, retro-sensationalism and post colonial. Through investigating current galleries and artists Smith is able to lay his case open.

Completely unreadable and Incomprehensible. So far up it's own ass it can't see daylight.

It is impossible to read this book without a thesaurus and a dictionary beside you. Even then, drugs are needed to reach the trance like state that is necesary to get yourelf through this book. There are some useful messages at the end of a book that could have been written in a quarter of the space but by the time I got to the messages I was brain dead. The sad thing is that there is ample excellent material in the book to have made a real difference to the understanding of contemporary art by the wider community but that opportunity has been lost for the moment.

What Is Contemporary Art?
If you ask me after reading this book, I would reply that its a question that doesn't get answered until the final chapter of the book.

According to Terry Smith, "the answer is obvious--and has been since the 1980s. Contemporary Art is the institutionalized network through which the art of today presents itself to itself and to its interested audiences all over the world." A response that is better suited to answering the question: What is the Contemporary Art World?

This definition (and the book as a whole) has no value in terms of understanding, appreciating or making art.

Smith discusses the history of how globalization has affected the contemporary art world. If you are interested in the politics and economics of the contemporary art world, then this book is for you. If you are interested in art, look at the table of contents and make your own decision.
