Summary:
"Modern art is an intimidating subject. When it comes up in ordinary conversation, as it does more and more these days, the room tends to divide into those laying down the law thunderously and those backing off timidly.

Abstract:

"Modern art is an intimidating subject. When it comes up in ordinary conversation, as it does more and more these days, the room tends to divide into those laying down the law thunderously and those backing off timidly. In fact, both of these responses tend to be based on fear; when it comes to Modern art, most people don't know what they're talking about. With this book, Matthew Collings says that not knowing is okay, that Modern art's unknowability is what makes it worthwhile."--Jacket.
