Lucy R. Lippard
Six Years: The dematerialization of the art object from 1966 to 1972
University of California Press
This publication is part of artist Lily van der Stokker reading list, selected on the occasion of Thank You Darling at Camden Art Centre, 2022.
In Six Years Lucy R. Lippard documents the chaotic network of ideas that has been labeled conceptual art. The book is arranged as an annotated chronology into which is woven a rich collection of original documents--including texts by and taped discussions among and with the artists involved and by Lippard, who has also provided a new preface for this edition. The result is a book with the character of a lively contemporary forum that offers an invaluable record of the thinking of the artists--a historical survey and essential reference book for the period.
