Understanding Contemporary Art

We all have the ability to interpret art.

Every art movement throughout history was once contemporary and often challenging, yet eventually became the accepted norm.
This talk will showcase key artworks that shook audiences when they were first revealed and explore the visual tools used by artists to elicit emotional responses from viewers.
