Book featuring the art of Robert Arneson

Description

The importance of Robert Arneson’s work is the very thing that compels many to dismiss it — its prescient articulation of one of the most unsettling cultural developments of the last forty years.

In Robert Arneson’s career-long dialogue with abstract expressionist painting, on the one hand, and with the hierarchical aesthetics that categorized ceramics as craft, not art, on the other, he created metaphors that revealed undermining cracks in the social edifice of our era.

Our drawing recognition of the simultaneity and multidimensionality of cross-tracking tendencies in every aspect of contemporary reality began unsettling our monolithic views of the world.
