ArtwritingBook - 1987
Artwriting is a philosophical study of the history of recent American art criticism. Carrier argues that an artwork can be understood only relative to interpretation, a function of criticism. But unlike art history, art criticism cannot arrive at a consensus about what makes a true interpretation of an artwork. Criticism can only appeal to the persuasiveness of alternative critical narratives in determining an artwork's meaning and value.
