Invitation for ArtSlant Readers: Come Celebrate the WILD ART Book Launch with Phaidon Press at the Smyth Tribeca (Nov. 7, 2013)
ABOUT THE BOOK
Wild Art is a visual exploration of everything and anything from outside the exclusive and rarefied spectrum of the ‘Art World’.
It will present a highly illustrated account of the most exciting examples of the vast multitude of ‘other’ art worlds – mostly left unmentioned within the professional art literature – that proliferate outside the boundaries of the Art World. The art that most professionals – art critics, art historians, artists, auctioneers, collectors and dealers tend to ignore.
At its heart, this book raises the question of what constitutes 'art' by celebrating the artists and art forms that are usually ignored by the art establishment.
