Tate: Contemporary Art Decoded

Available

Description

What is contemporary art, and how did art come to be what it is today? How can we understand what a work of art means; and can't just about anything be called art these days?

Contemporary Art Decoded
takes ten key questions about contemporary art and uses them to what you're looking at, how it works, and why it matters. Steering clear of jargon, this book digs deep into the core ideas and concepts behind the art. It features some work you'll recognise, and some you won't, from some of the most exciting artists working today, such as Olafur Eliasson, Anish Kapoor, Yayoi Kusama and Zanele Muholi.

This book is guaranteed to make your next trip to a gallery more rewarding.
