How to Experience Contemporary Art

Ossian Ward

$16.95

Art has changed. Familiar styles and movements that characterized art production prior to the twenty-first century have all vanished. Traditional artistic media no longer do what we expect of them.

Ways of Looking provides a six-step program for understanding contemporary art based on the concept of the tabula rasa — a clean slate and a fresh mind. It transforms a potentially intimidating encounter with cutting-edge art into a dramatic, sensually rewarding, and thought-provoking experience.

Ossian Ward is Head of Content at the Lisson Gallery. He was previously chief art critic at Time Out London.
