Seven Keys to Modern Art

In a world where artists place a premium on self-expression and innovation, obtuse intellectualism and outrage for outrage’s sake, this guide aims to decipher the bizarre and often intimidating phenomenon of ‘modern art’. Ranging across the widest variety of media, styles, subjects and intentions, Simon Morley offers seven different lenses through which to interpret twenty works of art, reflecting the impact of globalism and neuroscience. Without recourse to inflexible ‘readings’, he invites the reader to unlock the meanings of some of the world’s most intriguing and contested art.
