Now revised and expanded, Michael Archer's acclaimed book is brought up to date with coverage of the comprehensive globalization of art since the mid-1990s, which has been reflected in the growth of the exhibition calendar and the number of new museums opening around the world. With over thirty additional illustrations and an updated timeline and bibliography, Art Since 1960 is an indispensable source of information on the evolution of art over the past four decades."-- Back Cover.
