Whether you re an artist, would-be artist, or someone seeking the marvelous, you ll find the courage and originality of the movements inspiring, and you ll gain an understanding of their long-term (and current) influences on contemporary art and culture everything from performance art to pop art to the abandoned train ticket you find in the street.
