Critical documentation about critical exhibition that launched the arts of the 1980s. “A renewed impulse to make pictures of recognizable thing characterizes a wide range of contemporary art, consulting a line of continuity drawn through its much touted pluralism. The extensive use of those media that have the power of replicating the world around us — photography, film, video — is but one of its manifestations. In addition, the realm of the imagination has reappeared to displace the analytic and perceptual modes of our recent past…” — from Crimp’s essay.
