Art, politics and dissent provides a counter history to conventional accounts of American art.. Close historical examinations of particular events in Los Angeles and New York in the 1960s are interwoven with discussion of the location of these events, normally marginalised or overlooked, in the history of cultural politics in the United States during the postwar period.. This book is based on detailed and new research from a range of sources including the alternative press, such as the Los Angeles Free Press; public and private archives; interviews and oral histories.. Interdisciplinary in approach, it adds substantially to recent innovative research and teaching approaches in art history and other related disciplines.. Provides essential case studies for taught courses; scholarly debate and general cross-disciplinary readership.
