Abstract (English)

Fifteen lecturers (most of whom participated in a conference held at the University of Ottawa in 1991) analyse the manifold features that characterize the art/theory interchange and the effects of the current "inflation of commentary" on the market valorization and the intellectual and political legitimation of art. Among the topics discussed: theory's institutional affiliations to the academy and the museum; the influence of identity politics, cultural policies, body politics, feminism, and new technologies. Biographical notes on contributors. Circa 340 bibl. ref.
