This chapter examines contemporary art practice in relation to the works of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. It describes a certain kind of contemporary art practice utilising what might loosely be called a Deleuzian framework, and discusses concepts from across Deleuze and Deleuze and Guattari's corpus of work, bringing these to bear on the field of contemporary art practice in general. The chapter explores Guattari's solo writings and speculates on the future orientation of contemporary art.
