Ranged in broadly chronological order it provides a source of inspiration and a fascinating resource for the general reader to dip into Lavishly illustrated with historic. If you feel skeptical about the idea of reading a book of 100 ideas that changed art let go of any lingering doubts you may have This was not gimmick y and it did not overcomplicate things In fact Michael Bird achieved what a straightforward if dull chronology of art probably couldn't which is to educate the reader about the art movements art terms and famous figures in an highly engaging and digestible format As someone who took a few Art History courses in university this is an excellent Art History 101 primer Bird was able to make an idea about Mathematics interesting and not want to pull your hair out about Proportion or Harmony or Infinity These ideas are brought to life through Bird's wonderful essays Each essay discusses the growth and popularity of a particular idea pulls a few memorably relevant uotes from key art figures and caps it all off by discussing how the idea can be seen or not in present day art practice The ideas follow a chronological order and are focused on the development of western art although ideas that took hold in the east are also mentioned What's great is that the majority of the ideas are not named after the movement or art term Some of them are words like Whiteness or Mirrors while others are phrases Capturing the Instant I enjoyed this format because Bird created much meaningful connections to these major movements even when Bird is talking about lost wax casting welding or artificial light it's all good stuff I particularly enjoyed Bird’s short essays on art movements like Abstract Art Pop Art and Conceptual Art It was super easy to follow with arguments that got down to brass tacks Pop Roy Lichtenstein’s Blam 1962 upended the preoccupations of the preceding half century of Western avant garde art in which abstraction had been advanced time and again as a vehicle for universal truths If this was ran the rationale behind pop why did most people outside a minority of artists and intellectuals find abstract art incomprehensible Moreover if art aimed to reflect reality shouldn’t it reflect the contemporary ideals of comic books cars screen idols Conceptual Art In the romantic tradition art is heuristic it leads you toward a discovery rather than beginning with an idea As Mark Rothko and Adolph Gottlied wrote in 1943 “Art is an adventure into an unknown world” To characterize art as an “adventure” rather than an expensive cultural product could however seem disingenuous It was honest surely to distinguish between the commodity object and the meanings attached to it This distinction is the basis for the concentration of concept as opposed to object that characterizes much art since the 1960sThe only thing 100 Ideas That Changed Art is missing aside from a better cover is the actual art MORE images would have been great especially since Bird often references art that is not pictured Great read that you can find at the local library

100 Ideas that Changed ArtFrom the earliest cave paintings through to the internet and street art this inspiring book chronicles the 100 most influential ideas that have shaped the world of art Ar. This looks like a coffee table book but it contains a lot of information It's collection of 100 short essays I'd guess about 500 1000 words each about ideas in art oil paint linear perspective performance as art Almost each essay peppers in some very interesting historical tidbit or uote or offers some idea about art One that pops out at the moment is the original thinking behind installation art the artists wanted to make it impossible for their work to become a commodity so they took the object out of the art and made the art from space and experience alone It's something I knew already but this book recapped it clearly Another tidbit that stuck out to me the related idea of action painting 50's abstract expressionism that the painting is what's left over from the experience and the action of its making There's tons here and I've forgotten most of it already but hopefully it's still noodling round inside my brain
