Modern art in the contemporary world - a strange phenomenon. That banana glued to a wall? Sold for $120,000. What about the urinal that sold for $1.85 million? And now, a digital artwork - an NFT - has been sold for $69 million.
What's happening? How did we end up here? How do we infer meaning from these pieces? Lots of questions - we've got the answers.
From the past to today, join us for a 3-week journey with our expert where we look at the transformation of art. Together, we go back in time to the period in art history when artists began to reject realistic portraits and landscapes, leading to the revolution in perspective.
