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.
