Synopsis

Is It Really Art?: Art Installations by Alix Wood

Is it Art? is a series of books focusing on exciting contemporary art forms. From graffiti to junk sculptures and from urban street art to installations, Is it Art? offers young readers examples from each medium and tells the story behind their creation. The series also encourages discussion and suggests activities so that readers can try making their own art.So what is an art installation anyway? Well, they're basically three-dimensional sculptures that are designed for a specific space. Often you can walk around, in or on installations and interact with them in a way that you can't with other types of art. This book looks at the huge variety of forms art installations can take and examines the difference between sculpture and installation. Whatever your opinion, the installations in this book are guaranteed to get you thinking about what art is.
