Synopsis

What is Contemporary Art? by Jacky Klein

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 worlds 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.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
