This interesting, concise, and stylish book gathers together the seminal moments in the international art scene of the last few years, placing them in the context of the critical and public understanding of the works, and brings into play the remarkable growth of contemporary art museums across the United States, Europe, and globally. Contemporary Art describes the latest trends and tendencies in art, calling upon international exhibitions, curatorial projects, and the growth of new technology, and showing the rapidly evolving experiment that is the visual arts of our time. An excellent source of information for those involved in the visual arts, this book is also a great read for non-academic hobbyists and life-long learners.
