In Six Years Lucy R. Lippard documents the chaotic network of ideas
that has been labeled conceptual art. The book is arranged as an
annotated chronology into which is woven a rich collection of
original documents - including texts by and taped discussions among
and with the artists involved and by Lippard, who has also provided
a new preface for this edition. The result is a book with the
character of a lively contemporary forum that offers an invaluable
record of the thinking of the artists - a historical survey and
essential reference book for the period.

A marvelous book. . . Nothing short of a reading of the whole can provide even a faint suggestion of its liveliness or the range of ideas it covers.
