Beschreibung

A Companion to Modern Art presents a series of original essays by international and interdisciplinary authors who offer a comprehensive overview of the origins and evolution of artistic works, movements, approaches, influences, and legacies of Modern Art.

  • Presents a contemporary debate and dialogue rather than a seamless consensus on Modern Art
  • Aims for reader accessibility by highlighting a plurality of approaches and voices in the field
  • Presents Modern Art's foundational philosophic ideas and practices, as well as the complexities of key artists such as Cezanne and Picasso, and those who straddled the modern and contemporary
  • Looks at the historical reception of Modern Art, in addition to the latest insights of art historians, curators, and critics to artists, educators, and more


Pam Meecham is Professor of Museum Studies at the UCL Institute of Education, where she conducts research into institutional histories and the display of modernism. Meecham is the co-author of Making American Art (2009) and Modern Art: A Critical Introduction (2000, 2005).

Klappentext

Featuring contributions from a diverse range of established and emerging international scholars, art historians, curators, artists, and cultural critics, A Companion to Modern Art critically examines the complicated and often contentious legacies of Modern Art and modernism within a still globalizing present. This collection of original essays explores topics including Modern Art's interdisciplinarity, the historic and contemporary understanding of avant-garde works and exhibitions, Modern Art and colonialism, constructions of the artist, and Modern Art education. Looking again at modernism's central tropes this volume also offers re-evaluations of modernism and classicism, primitivism, the role of the archaic in the modern, and reflections on Nietzschean aesthetics and the modern imagination. Readers can expect to gain further understanding of Modern Art's foundational philosophic ideas and practices, new assessments of key artists such as Cézanne and Picasso, as well as debates around less familiar artists.

Innovative and thought-provoking, A Companion to Modern Art offers illuminating insights into multiple modernities, while reinterpreting visual language and unravelling the complex legacies of Modern Art for the contemporary world.
