"Why Your 5 Year Old Could Not Have Done That" is Susie Hodges passionate and persuasive argument against the most common disparaging remark levelled at modern art. In this enjoyable and thought-provoking book, she examines 100 works of modern art that have attracted critical and public hostility from Cy Twomblys scribbled "Olympia" (1957), Jean-Michel Basquiats crude but spontaneous "LNAPRK" (1982), to the apparently careless mess of Tracey Emins "My Bed" (1998) and explains how, far from being negligible novelties, they are inspired and logical extensions of the ideas of their time. She explains how such notorious works as Carl Andres Equivalent VIII (1966) the infamous bricks occupy unique niches in the history of ideas, both showing influences of past artists and themselves influencing subsequent artists. With illustrations of works from Hans Arp to Adolf Wolfli, Hodge places each work in its cultural context to present an unforgettable vision of modern art. This book will give you an understanding of the ways in which modern art differs from the realistic works of earlier centuries, transforming as well as informing your gallery visits for years to come.

Since the late 1990s, contemporary art markets have emerged rapidly outside of Europe and the United States. China is r s1the world's second largest art market. In counties as diverse as Brazil, Turkey and India, modern and contemporary art has been recognized as a source of status, or a potential investment tool among the new middle classes. At art auctions in the US, London and Hong Kong, new buyers from emerging economies have driven up prices to record levels. The result of these changes has been an increase in complexity, interconnectedness, stratification and differentiation of contemporary art markets. Our understanding of them is still in its early stages and empirical research in the field of globalization of high arts is still scarce. This book brings together recent, multidisciplinary, cutting edge research on the globalization of art markets. Focusing on different regions, including China, Russia, India and Japan, as well as different institutions and organizations, the chapters in this volume study the extent to which art markets indeed become global. They show the various barriers to, and the effects of, globalization on the art market's organizational dynamics and the everyday narratives of people working within the art industry. In doing so, they recognize the coexistence of various ecologies of contemporary art exchange, and sketch the presence of resilient local networks of actors and organizations. Some chapters show Europe and the US continue to dominate, especially when taking art market rankings and the most powerful events such as Art Basel into account. However, other chapters argue that things such as art fairs are truly global events and that the 'architecture of the art market' which has originally been developed in Europe and the US from the 19th century onwards, is increasingly adopted across the world.

In his highly original, wide-ranging and abundantly illustrated book, Alistair Hicks demonstrates his belief that no single curator, critic or dealer can or should monopolize our view of what is happening in the art world today. Instead, he aims to show us how exciting and rewarding it is to steer our own way through the art world. See the art, listen to the artist, trust your responses learn to navigate according to your own instincts. The Global Art Compass is an account of the authors explorations in the contemporary art world and a manifesto for how we might all discover our own inner art compass. The book has an easy-to-navigate continent-by-continent structure and includes numerous extracts from the authors interviews with artists as diverse as Laure Prouvost (France), Gavin Turk (UK), Anri Sala (Albania), Roman Ondak (Slovakia), Michael Borremans (Belgium), Lada Nakonechna (Russia), Gabriel Orozco (Mexico), Amy Cutler (USA), Sandra Gamarra (Peru), Cai Guo-Qiang (China), Nandan Ghiya (India) among many others.

159 p. : col. ill. ; 24 cm.
This is the first book to fully examine the serious cultural influence of one of the twentieth century's most excessive and exciting pop movements. Glam is held as a prism through which to view and refract artistic developments in Europe and North America, shedding new light on the extravagance of art, performance and visual culture at this time. Covering a range of subjects including fashion, music, film, gender in performance and postmodernism, the book moves beyond a nostalgic reception and reveals the under-acknowledged exchange between avant-garde art and the extravagant style. Tracing the Glam sensibility to performance and installation art, and to painting and sculpture, the book includes artworks from David Hockney and Richard Hamilton, as well as ephemera such as posters, magazines and photographs and the music of T.Rex, David Bowie, Roxy Music and Lou Reed.

'Beyond Contemporary Art' explores an international group of artists whose diverse creative practises over the last decade have been instrumental in the development of the contemporary art world. The vibrant contemporary art scene is one of constant expansion and innovation, where artists are continually reinventing themselves and dissolving boundaries in artistic disciplines. Etan Jonathan Ilfeld provides an illuminating introduction which discusses the development of international art fairs, the growth of graffiti and street art as well as the technological advancements which have enabled the creation of iPhone art apps, virtual reality, synthetic biology and computer art. This visually stunning and accessible book emphasises the increased hybridisation of the art world, which spans disciplines ranging from science, design and architecture to new media, filmmaking and performance art. 'Beyond Contemporary Art' surveys the work of well-known artists, such as Damien Hirst and Gerhard Richter, as well as new and emerging ones such as Katie Paterson, whose projects attempt to visualise invisible forces such as dead stars and melting glaciers. This book reflects the playfully subversive nature of contemporary art and would appeal to any reader interested in the international contemporary art scene. Artists featured include: Mika Rottenberg - Argentina, Natalie Jeremijenko - Australia, Azra Aksamija - Bosnia-Herzegovina, Eduardo Kac - Brazil, Brian Jungen - Canada, Ivan Navarro - Chile, Ai Weiwei - China, Hrvoje Majer - Croatia, Katja Kublitz - Denmark, Banksy - England, Christophe Bruno - France, Aram Bartholl - Germany, Bjork - Iceland, Roisin Byrne - Ireland, Michal Rovner - Israel, Benedetta Tagliabue - Italy, Fumie Kamijo - Japan, Namhee Kwon - Korea, Mounira Al Solh - Lebanon, Julieta Aranda - Mexico, Alicja Kwade - Poland, Miguel Palma - Portugal, Anton Vidokle - Russia, Katie Paterson - Scotland, Candice Breitz - South Africa, Jeremy Wood - USA among many others.

Contemporary Art: World Currents argues that, in recent decades, a worldwide shift from modern to contemporary art has occurred. Artists everywhere have embraced the contemporary world's teeming multiplicity, its proliferating differences and its challenging complexities. This book shows how contemporary art achieved definitive force in the markets and museums of the major art centres during the 1980s. It then became a global phenomenon as artworlds everywhere began to connect more closely, to become contemporaneous with each other. New communicative technologies and expanding social media are now shaping the future of art. Terry Smith offers the first account of these changes, from their historical beginnings to the present day. This book breaks new ground in tracing how modern, traditional and indigenous art became contemporary in each of cultural region of the world. The author argues that it is diversity, or the contemporaneity of difference, not a convergence towards sameness, which makes today's art contemporary.

Book
1 v. (unpaged) : ill. (chiefly col.) ; 21 cm.
  • The Child Within A Question of Perception Creating a World Ordinary made Extraordinary No Limits.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
Crazy Art will be a revelation to anyone who thinks that art is more or less limited to painting, sculpture and photography. The title features the work of more than sixty contemporary artists drawn from all over the world, demonstrating that there are absolutely no boundaries to expressing the most inventive and exciting ideas through a vast range of different media and materials. Five chapters pitch well-known artists - such as Carl Warner with his bizarre "foodscapes", or Nathan Swaya, creator of Brick Art, and Larry Moss with his famous balloon sculptures - alongside young practitioners like Pei-Sang Ng, an artist whose stunning matchstick designs burn brightly but all too briefly. Each artist and subject receives a short introduction, whilst illustrations and detailed descriptions provide insight into their most important, individual and creative works of art. From Food Art to Body Art, Junk Art to Street and even Dust Art, Crazy Art brings their original, radical and provocative ideas to life. Website links guide the reader toward more information on the artists, their work and the galleries or museums that give them patronage.

Long considered the survey of modern art, this engrossing and liberally illustrated text traces the development of trends and influences in painting, sculpture, photography and architecture from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. Retaining its comprehensive nature and chronological approach, it now comes thoroughly reworked by Elizabeth Mansfield, an experienced art historian and writer, with refreshing new analyses, a considerably expanded picture program, and a more absorbing and unified narrative.
