What is Contemporary Art?

A Guide for Kids

Why do some artists use eggshells, crushed cars, elephant dung, and basketballs to make their art? Who created sculptures out of fluorescent lightbulbs? Are two giant hamburgers better than one? And why is a suit of clothing hanging on the wall of an art gallery?

What Is Contemporary Art? reveals all this and more. A captivating book for children and parents to read at home, as well as a great resource for teachers and schools, it invites young readers to understand, enjoy, and question some of the most dynamic and exciting art of our time.

What Is Contemporary Art? features approximately 70 artists from across the globe, whose works are featured in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Exploring subjects as wide-ranging as outer space, unusual materials, and bizarre beasts, the book is packed with photographs and special features including quotes from the artists and "How did they do it?" prompts. The book also includes short biographies of the artists, a glossary of key art terms, and a list of useful websites and art museums.
