  • The Invisible Dragonby Dave Hickey

    University of Chicago Press 2012; US$ 15.00

    The Invisible Dragon made a lot of noise for a little book When it was originally published in 1993 it was championed by artists for its forceful call for a reconsideration of beauty—and savaged by more theoretically oriented critics who dismissed the very concept of beauty as naive, igniting a debate that has shown no sign of flagging. ... more...
