Annus Mirabilis?: Art in the Year 2000

Be the first to review this product

The fourth and final part of a four-volume set of art criticism by Richard Cork, written over a 30-year period. It offers a chronicle of a turbulent period as well as an overview and survey of British art and its reception at this time. This particular work addresses the art of the year 2000. Despite gloomy predictions, the year 2000 turned out to be overwhelmingly positive for art. The opening of Tate Modern was a triumph, but it was only the most spectacular of the new buildings opening across the nation, part of the biggest museum expansion that Britain has ever witnessed. In London alone, new additions to the National Portrait Gallery, the Imperial War Museum, the Wallace Collection, Dulwich Picture Gallery, the British Museum and Somerset House were all unveiled in this "Annus Mirabilis". An exceptionally ambitious new gallery opened in Walsall, and regional cities will want to follow the inspirational example of Baltic at Gateshead, furnishing themselves with buildings that escape from the old, depressing stereotype of the municipal art gallery. Cork seeks to convey the excitement of this unforgettable year in this work, which is filled with optimism about changing public attitudes to contemporary art. But he also raises fundamental questions in the reader's mind, focusing above all on the quality of experience provided by art.
