Discover art that dared to be different, risked reputations and put careers in jeopardy. This is what happens when artists take tradition and rip it up.
ArtQuake tells the fascinating stories behind the creation, reception and legacy of 50 pivotal works that shook the world. From Gustave Courbet's The Bathers (1853) to Marcel Duchamp's Fountain (1917); Yves Klein's Untitled Anthropometry (1960) to Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party (1974–79); Andres Serrano's Piss Christ (1987) to Banksy's Love is in the Bin (2018) – meet huge egos, uncompromising feminists, gifted recluses, spiritualists, anti-consumerists, activists, satirists and more.
In telling the history of modern and contemporary art through the works that were truly disruptive, and explaining the context in which each was created, ArtQuake demonstrates the heart of modern art, which is to constantly question and challenge expectation.
