Everything You Wanted to Know About Contemporary Art but Were Afraid to Ask
by Robert Diament and Russell Tovey
Talk Art offers readers a wide ranging look at art. While the authors come from the arts,t their fields were acting and music. Together, the two have engaged in learning more about contemporary art. They eventually began a pod cast called Talk Art and then came this title. Tovey and Diamant begin by sharing some of their own history with the readers; this helps those picking up this book to know something of the authors’ evolution.
What follows are chapters on many topics. To name a few, there are Performance Art, Public Art, Photography, Sound Art, Ceramics and more. Further, they do not shy away from the political.
This title also includes a helpful section on ways to become involved with contemporary art whether it is seeing art, creating a collection, being an artist or reading more.
This book is lavishly illustrated. Dip in anywhere or go through this title in order. A reader will walk away with something each time.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
