The SVA Library has just added several books from the Whitechapel Documents of Contemporary Art series to our collection. This anthology series covers broad themes in the visual arts, and is available in our main stacks. The library plans to add all volumes from the series as they are released. Search for these volumes in Vision with the phrase "documents of contemporary art."
From MIT Press:
In 2006 London's famous Whitechapel Gallery and the MIT Press formed an editorial alliance to produce a new series of books. Documents of Contemporay Art combines affordable paperback prices, good design, and impeccable editorial content. Each volume in the series is a definitive anthology on a particular theme, practice, or concern that is of central significance to contemporary visual culture. The aritsts and writers included in these books, like the guest editors who conceive them, represent the diversity of perspectives, generations, and voices defining art today.
