Contemporary art has become a mass entertainment, a luxury good, a job description and, for some, a kind of alternative religion. Sarah Thornton's shrewd and entertaining fly-on-the-wall narrative takes us behind the scenes of the art world, from art school to auction house, showing us how it works, and giving us a vivid sense of being there.

This compelling narrative goes behind the scenes with the world’s most important living artists to humanize and demystify contemporary art. The best-selling author of Seven Days in the Art World now tells the story of the artists themselves—how they move through the world, command credibility, and create iconic works. 33 Artists in 3 Acts offers unprecedented access to a dazzling range of artists, from international superstars to unheralded art teachers. Sarah Thornton's beautifully paced, fly-on-the-wall narratives include visits with Ai Weiwei before and after his imprisonment and Jeff Koons as he woos new customers in London, Frankfurt, and Abu Dhabi. Thornton meets Yayoi Kusama in her studio around the corner from the Tokyo asylum that she calls home. She snoops in Cindy Sherman’s closet, hears about Andrea Fraser’s psychotherapist, and spends quality time with Laurie Simmons, Carroll Dunham, and their daughters Lena and Grace. Through these intimate scenes, 33 Artists in 3 Acts explores what it means to be a real artist in the real world. Divided into three cinematic "acts"—politics, kinship, and craft—it investigates artists' psyches, personas, politics, and social networks. Witnessing their crises and triumphs, Thornton turns a wry, analytical eye on their different answers to the question "What is an artist?" 33 Artists in 3 Acts reveals the habits and attributes of successful artists, offering insight into the way these driven and inventive people play their game. In a time when more and more artists oversee the production of their work, rather than make it themselves, Thornton shows how an artist’s radical vision and personal confidence can create audiences for their work, and examines the elevated role that artists occupy as essential figures in our culture.

Art should be an integral and natural part of the community. In Australia, four art facilities - the Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), the Casula Powerhouse Arts Center, the Penrith Visual and Performing Arts, and the Campbelltown Arts Center - stand alone as prominent cultural institutions. But when four artists - Craig Walsh, Sylvie Blocher, Ash Keating, and Jeanne van Heeswijk - collaborate with these institutions, a new dynamic erupts. The community is everywhere: in the artwork, at the sites of artistic expression, and in the reactions to the works produced. The Art of Engagement reveals such unique collaborations while exploring the aesthetic, political, and economic dimensions of each project. The result is a collection of essays that invites the reader to rethink contemporary art in Australia.

Anthology of essays about seven pressing social and art-specific themes that encompass the full scope of the force-field of the visual arts. Renowned international theorists and promising young art critics and curators share their visions on a range of issues in accessible essays: What is the impact of 9/11 on our visual culture and the visual arts? What role does religion play in polarization? What are the consequences of ongoing globalization for the visual arts? How can we explain the revival of interest in canons and what function do they attribute to art? These socially engaged themes are alternated with topics that are traditionally more rooted in art, such as the return of Romanticism, the relative novelty of new media in the 'post-medium' era, and the utopian ideals of design. With such a varied selection of subjects and authors, the book builds a bridge between art and theory as well as between art and society, at a level attuned to academic discourse yet at the same time accessible for a wide-ranging public with an interest in art.

Part of the acclaimed 'Documents of Contemporary Art' series of anthologies . An excellent, essential anthology, which is both a good read and a useful teaching tool. - Sarah Thornton, author of Seven Days in the Art World The sway of transnational markets over contemporary culture has transformed art_s environment, blurring the previously discrete realms of price and value, capital and creativity. Uncovering the origins of these phenomena in earlier epochs, this anthology surveys the relations between art, value and price; the evolution and influence of patronage; the institutions and networks of the art world; and the diversity of artistic practices that either criticize or embrace contemporary market conditions. Artists surveyed include: Carl Andre, Michael Asher, Fia Backström, Joseph Beuys, Ian Burn, Maurizio Cattelan, Elmgreen & Dragset, Andrea Fraser, Melanie Gilligan, Dan Graham, Guerrilla Girls, Andreas Gursky, Hans Haacke, Damien Hirst, Christian Jankowski, Yves Klein, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Louise Lawler, Les Levine, Liu Ding, Lee Lozano, Takashi Murakami, Ahmet Ögüt, Tino Sehgal, Richard Serra, Nedko Solakov, Andy Warhol, Fred Wilson and Zhou Tiehai. Writers include: Theodor Adorno, Jack Bankowsky, Jean Baudrillard, Luc Boltanski, Pierre Bourdieu, Martin Braathen, Malcolm Bull, JJ Charlesworth, Eve Chiapello, Sophie Cras, Anthony Davies, Thierry de Duve, Marvin Elkoff, Simon Ford, Hal Foster, Peter Fuller, William Grampp, Josh Greenfeld, Michel Houellebecq, Miwon Kwon, Kate Linker, Lü Peng, Ursula Pasero, Scott Rothkopf, Peter Schjeldahl, Thomas Seelig, Marc Shell, Georg Simmel, Barbara Herrnstein Smith, Wolfgang Ullrich, Karen van den Berg, Thorstein Veblen, Olav Velthuis, Dorothea von Hantelmann, Tom Wolfe and Thomas Zaunschirm.
