Abstract (English)

The authors examine American artistic practices in the 1980s, emphasizing the histories and work of Asian, Latin, African and Native Americans, women and gays, whose voices have traditionally been suppressed by white male middleclass domination. Includes references to ethnocentrism, deconstruction, democracy, activism, the environment, homelessness, AIDS, video and performance art. Also includes a chronology of the 1980s, and brief biographical notes. Circa 200 bibl. ref.
