Documents of Contemporary Art Self-study display, Llandaff Library.

A new Self-study display comes to the top floor of Llandaff Library: Documents of Contemporary Art from Whitechapel Gallery is an acclaimed series of anthologies documenting major themes and ideas in contemporary art.

The books will be on display until Monday 9th November and records for them can be found on the Library Catalogue.

“In recent decades artists have progressively expanded the boundaries of art as they have sought to engage with an increasingly pluralistic environment. Teaching, curating and understanding of art and visual culture are likewise no longer grounded in traditional aesthetics but centred on significant ideas, topics and themes ranging from the everyday to the uncanny, the psychoanalytical to the political.

The Documents of Contemporary Art series emerges from this context. Each volume focuses on a specific subject or body of writing that has been of key influence in contemporary art internationally. Edited and introduced by a scholar, artist, critic or curator, each of these source books provides access to a plurality of voices and perspectives defining a significant theme or tendency.” Text taken from inside cover.
