"Henry M. Sayre...defines [American art since 1970] in terms of its shared, distinctly postmodern concerns, showing for the first time how the entire range of contemporary art--including dance, photography, oral poetry, performance art, and earth sculpture--is associated in a collective avant-garde project. What artists like Cindy Sherman, Andy Warhol, Laurie Anderson, David Antin, and Robert Smithson have in common, Sayre convincingly argues, is a view of art as primarily performative.'
