Teacher guide What is modern art?

TLF ID M021413

In the late nineteenth century a group of artists emerged in Europe to challenge traditional genres and create new movements and styles. The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) website provides a introduction to the works and artists who changed the concept of what is 'art' and introduced new subjects, materials, mediums and techniques to the visual arts. The website also provides a collection of downloadable slide shows of artworks (in PowerPoint), videos, worksheets, teaching and learning activities including questions to guide studies of works from the gallery's collection.
