Praise

That Relyea manages to build this examination from a wide lens, taking such a sweeping range of information and artists into account, pushes what could be a topic of limited interest into the realm of compelling theory, provocative while resisting any easy conclusions and ultimately finding insights that extend beyond the world of contemporary art.—Publishers Weekly

By locating the effects, tropes and techniques of post-Fordist regimes upon our art worlds, its institutions, and subjects, Your Everyday Art World brings a healthy dose of skepticism to many of the modalities of contemporary agency that artists and art institutions presume and have come to rely upon, perhaps too optimistically. Despite the ways Relyea himself limits the application of this critique, the book offers a strong counterpunch to the neo-entrepreneurial ideology that does indeed shape too many of our institutions and our romanticization of a ‘network society.’ As a result, Your Everyday Art World is a valuable text that should be taken up, argued over, and made use of.

Ashley Hunt, X-TRA

Ultimately, Your Everyday Art World is a sophisticated, incisive and deeply engaged book, and Relyea’s willingness to be polemical and take a position provides an example that more art historians and critics would do well to follow.

Saelan Twerdy, C Magazine
