What is Contemporary Art? is the ideal introduction for children aged eight and over to art made since the 1960s. Featuring artworks from one of the world's leading collections of modern and contemporary art, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, its lively and engaging text introduces the art and ideas to young readers, with background information, fascinating stories and intriguing questions encouraging children to engage directly with the artworks. The full range of contemporary practice is explored, from painting and sculpture to film, photography, performance and installation. Special features include pull-out artists' quotations, ideas and information boxes and `How Did They Do It?' prompts, directing the reader to useful nuggets of information, and asking questions to enable children to explore their own responses to the artworks. A beguiling book for children and parents, as well as the perfect support for school topic work on art history themes, What is Contemporary Art? invites young readers to understand, enjoy and question some of the most dynamic and exciting art of our times.
