Here Susie Hodge, author of How to Survive Modern Art, explains why the best examples of modern art are actually the result of sophisticated thought and serious talent. From Marcel Duchamps notorious Fountain and the scribbles of Cy Twombly to Mark Rothkos multiforms and Carl Andres uncarved blocks, Hodge addresses critical outrage with a revealing insight into the technical skill, layering of ideas, and sheer inspiration behind each work. In cleverly organized chapters such as Objects/ Toys, Provocations/Tantrums, and People/Monsters, Hodges thoughtfully and definitively lays bare the perception that modern art is mere childs play.
