Anne Roberts on Postmodern Art

Anne Roberts, ‘Outside the Frame: Postmodern Art’, Cambridge Papers 20, 2 (June 2011).

The latest Cambridge Paper from the Jubilee Centre is available online, this one devoted to a Christian perspective on developments since the 1960s in how art (presumably in the west?) is viewed.

Here is the summary:

‘This paper focuses on the scope and characteristics of recent conceptual and installation art, looking first at the early development of this genre, and then examining four major aspects: the exploration of visual language and appropriation of images; art based on autobiography; work which deals with social and environmental issues; and finally art which appropriates religious imagery. The paper concludes with reflections on finding a Christian voice in response.’
