Product description

Perhaps more than any other recent writer, Craig Owens explored the relations among the discourses of contemporary art, sexuality, and power. His familiarity with the New York art world and its practitioners in the 1970's and 1980's makes his writing an unparalleled guide to one of the most riveting periods of contemporary culture.

Review quote

"Owens is now widely perceived as one of the dominant critical and theoretical voices of the 1980s, and certainly this volume of essays will do much to cement that reputation."--"Art in America

Back cover copy

Several of the pieces in this collection testify to Owen's great love of music, though he never wrote about opera, which was one of his enduring passions. He was especially fond of the English National Opera, admiring its adventurous productions and its successful attempt to establish music theater as a genuinely popular medium in the United Kingdom. - from the book.
