Additional Information

Item details
How to Survive Modern Art is written in an engaging style that will appeal to all ages and is ideal for art and design students. Following on from her bestselling book How to Survive Modern Art, Susie Hodge once again tackles a dauntingly complex subject: how can we evaluate, explore and respond to art?

With the power to affect us all, art can be enjoyed in many different ways. Its impact can be both straightforward and unexpected. It can change our minds or our attitudes, provoke anger or shock, or make us laugh or cry. It can intimidate, disconcert, pose conundrums or puzzles, or instruct or enlighten. Ultimately, it offers a window on society’s values and ideals, and every work of art expresses the perceptions and memories of the artist who created it.

In her characteristically engaging style, Susie Hodge shows us how to interpret and respond to a broad variety of artwork and artists’ philosophies. This enormously stimulating book enriches our experience of art, and in the process enhances our own creativity.

Susie Hodge is an author, art historian and artist. With over 80 books published, she also writes articles and web resources and gives workshops and lectures. She has taught in schools and colleges and contributes to radio and TV documentaries.
