Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How to learn more about the history of modern art while being entertained? With games, puzzles, quotations and commentaries on art and artists, the Art Game Book is an all-new and original way of exploring every aspect of 20th-century art in the United States and Europe: painting, sculpture, architecture, design, video, installation, photography.

With entertaining games and puzzles, the Art Game Book allows you not only to test your knowledge, but to see and appreciate it in a new light. You can open this book to whatever page you like and proceed from one movement or one era to another by playing games, answering questions, or browsing the definitions and commentaries.

But the Art Game Book offers even more: In addition to presenting the principal artistic movements, abundant illustrations, numerous games and a glossary, this book includes an appendix with an international guide to museums, websites, fairs and events devoted to modern art the world over.

More than 300 artworks illustrate this unique and interactive introduction to modern art history.

Synopsis:

In addition to beautiful reproductions, commentaries, and a glossary of the important art movements, this exciting book includes a resource guide to help you check out the world's major modern and contemporary art museums, find the best websites, and choose among the most important art fairs and events. To be serious while not taking oneself seriously: that's the objective of this book, which allows the reader to explore the complete history of 20th century art with enthusiasm and curiosity. Developed to be both comprehensive and accessible, The Art Game Book is a new way of approaching art history. The works included here are perfect representations of 20th century art, but are fresh examples and not the usual suspects. This book is, in essence, a game that allows the reader not only to test his or her knowledge of art but to see and appreciate it in a new way. The Art Game Book lets you start where you like and browse your way from one art movement to another, or from one era to the next, through questions, games, definitions, and commentaries.
