"The Body in Contemporary Art presents an international survey of art made since the early 1990s that has the body as its focus. Organized thematically, it examines such areas as nature and technology, the grotesque, identity politics and the place of the individual in society. From painting and sculpture to installation, video art and performance, Sally O'Reilly reveals the myriad ways in which the body has inspired a generation of artists."--BOOK JACKET.
