Contemporary Art Update

The newest updates at Grove Art Online focus on globalization.

Newly added articles investigate themes of globalisation in respect to contemporary art, addressing such topics as biennials and art fairs, and Brazilian art after 1980. In addition, new and revised biographies offer a sampling of contemporary artists from around the globe working in various media and forms who are expanding the international reach of contemporary art.

The Grove Encyclopedia of American Art

This month Grove introduces content from the forthcoming Grove Encyclopedia of American Art, edited by Joan Marter, Professor of Contemporary Painting and Sculpture at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, and Editor of Woman’s Art Journal. Drawing upon the expansive scholarship in The Dictionary of Art, The Grove Encyclopedia of American Art will deal with all aspects of American art from Native American architecture to contemporary installation art.

More information about both of these additions is available at Grove’s What’s New page.
