Artists do a number of things that are very useful. In this deceptively modestbook, some of these things are described. Seminal works by artists MarcelDuchamp, John Cage, Richard Serra, Christo & Jean-Claude, Donald Judd, andOn Kawara are used to illustrate (in words only) these points. This book is highlyrecommended for parents of children thinking of embarking on a career in thearts, for policymakers confused about the function of art in society, and for artistssuffering a bout of self-doubt.
