Examines the art world from 1985 to 1994, a tumultuos period that ushered in the art boom and, the emergence (and in some cases disappearance) of developments like Appropriation, Neo-Geo, and multiculturalism, and the ongoing attack on art by the religious Right and political conservatives. Chronicling events that took place during this decade, with a particular focus on public art, Heartney also examines the mechanisms of the gallery and media system, especially as they relate to the practice of art criticism, as well as the complexities of the debate on art and pornography. Includes an Index.

(Key Words: American Culture, Eleanor Heartney, Art, Multiculturalism, 1980s, 1990s, United States, Postmodernism, Society, Susan Sontag, Cindy Sherman, Alfredo Jaar, Peter Halley, Andrea Dworkin).
