...Now "The Reenchantment of Art" describes her hope for a new art, born out of a new cultural paradigm embracing a revitalized sense of community, an enlarged ecological perspective, and access to mythic and archetypal sources of spiritual life. In the course of her argument, Gablik introduces the reader to a number of figures for whom this paradigm offers a fresh approach to making art: artists such as Fern Shaffer, who performs empowerment rituals to mark the seasonal equinoxes; David T. Hanson, Andy Goldsworthy and Rachel Rosenthal, whose work attempts to heal our wounded planet; and others such as Tim Rollins, Suzanne Lacy and Mierle Laderman Ukeles who address the gravest social issues. The book offers a programme of fundamental interest to anyone who cares obout the future of art - a 'reenchantment' to challenge and inspire. - back cover

This book even now over 25 years later still haunts me. It is an amazing read, and I'm looking forward to reading it again.
