How to Look at Contemporary Art PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

How to Look at Contemporary Art free pdf Everything you ever wanted to know about contemporary art but were afraid to ask. The idea behind this book is that an art which at first sight may appear cryptic and elitist can, in fact, be explained in very simple terms by examining individual works and bringing out their personal and social aspects, such as we find also in newspapers and films and in our daily lives, while avoiding the convoluted jargon of most art-historical and critical texts.Looking at 66 significant works by as many artists of international fame, ranging from 1970 to 2008, Giorgio Guglielmino describes all the various forms of contemporary art and tells the story of each artist in a simple, straightforward manner: a conversation among friends. This book shows how the most recent art - the sort of art that Raphael might produce were he alive today - can be enjoyed and appreciated to the full by everybody. Artists featured in this title include: Jean-Michel Basquiat, Francesco Clement, Tracey Emin, Douglas Gordon, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst, Anselm Kiefer, Richard Long, Julian Opie, Marc Quinn, Sean Scully, Cindy Sherman, and Rachel Whiteread.
