"'Hyperframes : A Post-Appropriation Discourse, Vol. 1'" based on six lectures delivered by Collins & Milazzo at Yale University, provides the reader with a 'history' of the new Conceptual art of this decade [1980s]. At issue in 'Hyperframes' are the cultural phenomena of reiticagtion, critical photography, conceptual abstract painting and Postmodernism. Also covered here are the works of artists Ross Bleckner, Allan McCollum, Peter Halley, Jeff Koons, Jonathan Lasker, Philip Taaffe, haim Steinbach, Annette Lemieux, Saint Clain Cemin, Robert Gober, Suzan Etkin, Joseph Nechvatal, Salvatore Scarpitta, The Starn Twins, and Meg Webster.
