NF; As new but for light rubbing to back cover along spine. Color-illus. black wraps with black lettering on white spine. 240 pp. with no illustrations. Introduction by Northrop Frye. Papers read at an international conference held at Simon Fraser University in 1982, featuring (at the time) current thought on the nature of "art" and "the real" from the "developed" world to Third World countries; the political right to the political left; and other perspectives. Many questions raised are shocking in their immediacy and provocative in their candor. Headings, each with multiple papers, are: The Elements of Art; Art in Society; The Impact of Technology on the Arts; Patronage: The Double-Edged Sword; The Arts and Internationalism. The papers cover all aspects of the arts, including museum management, fine arts, and performing arts.
