A volume in the Movements in Modern Art Series (General Editor: Simon Wilson). This series introduces the major movements in late nineteenth and twentieth-century art. Each book is illustrated with works from the Tate and other major collections around the world. 'Perceptive, portable and very good value'- The Art Newspaper Conceptual art has challenged two key concepts normally associated with art - the production of objects to look at, and the act of contemplative looking itself. Paul Wood examines how this movement may be seen as a turning point between a modernist past and a post-modern present.
