A New Dictionary of Art
Edited by Robert Good
Published October 2017 by Peculiarity Press
Foreword by Prof Derek Matravers
"Both splendid and splendidly bonkers" -
The definition of ‘art’ has exercised philosophers, artists and art-
A New Dictionary of Art takes a refreshingly alternative approach, allowing you to
take your pick from over 3,000 definitions compiled from the internet via chat-
Each entry is carefully alphabetised and has been valiantly edited and annotated for accuracy and completeness to the point of absurdity. By retaining the format and formality of a dictionary in this way, A New Dictionary of Art acknowledges with humour our continuing desire for absolute knowledge and certainty.
The result is a streetwise cacophony of creativity and a wonderful and energizing summation of all the potentials that art can be.
