Abstract (English)

Rhodes discusses the comic role played by the self-conscious "objecthood" of Lebredt's and Prina's installations in countering the dematerialization of the art object in its social space; he states that, as Late Conceptualists, these artists accept the critical tropes of that tradition and reformulate them in a more ironic way. Biographical notes. 120 bibl. ref.
