Industry and Intelligence: Contemporary Art Since 1820 has just been added to Columbia Scholarship Online (CUSO), adding to the Art module. In Industry and Intelligence, the artist Liam Gillick writes a nuanced genealogy to help us appreciate contemporary art’s engagement with history even when it seems apathetic or blind to current events. Taking a broad view of artistic creation from 1820 to today, Gillick follows the response of artists to incremental developments in science, politics, and technology.
