Global Conceptualism. This book documents the most important exhibition of conceptual art ever undertaken, and surveys with decidedly international scope the development of idea-based art in the works of over 100 artists, from Australia, Asia, Latin America, Africa, Western and Eastern Europe, and North America. Included are scholarly essays which consider on a region-by-region basis the spread of conceptual art, as well as the "moment of rupture" when artists turned from object-based to idea-based art. Through both its text and its numerous reproductions, this book shows the degree to which the language of conceptual art is global, and its extensive look at non-Western artists redresses the relative invisibility of these places in most histories of conceptualism.
