"After several years of art derived in face and in spirit from the media explosion and the technological revolution, many artists now seem to be literally turning to the elements -- air, earth, water, and fire -- as their source of inspiration. One day soon it may become a social necessity to exchange our traditionally sacred object art for a more conceptual, less spatial art-as-environment. In preparation for that day artists like those represented in Art Art exhibition are fully exploiting our current technology in order create new art forms benefitting that future..." -- from Peter Selz's introduction. Artworks by Architectural Association Group, Hans Haacke, Akira Kanayama, Les Levine, Preston McClanahan, David Medalla, Robert Morris, Marcello Salvadori, Graham Stevens, John Van Saun, Andy Warhol.
