How many times have you read the caption next to a work of art in a museum or gallery, or a review of an exhibition, and found yourself none the wiser? The language in which modern art is described can be even more mystifying than the art itself. Now, a fully updated and expanded edition of the acclaimed Tate Guide to Modern Art Terms offers a clear and reliable guide, with more than 450 pithy entries on the full range of international modern and contemporary art. Drawing on the expertise of Tate, the book provides an authoritative and up-to-date resource, small enough to fit into a bag or pocket. Spanning the dawn of Impressionism to the digital age, every term--whether a theme, movement, medium, or technique--is defined with clarity and precision. This is the perfect companion for all those wanting to increase their understanding and appreciation of modern and contemporary art.

Why Are We Artists

This extraordinary collection of 100 artists' manifestos from across the globe over the last 100 years brings together political activists, anti-colonialists, surrealists, socialists, nihilists and a host of other voices.

'Art is not a luxury. Art is a basic social need to which everyone has a right'. This extraordinary collection of 100 artists' manifestos from across the globe over the last 100 years brings together political activists, anti-colonialists, surrealists, socialists, nihilists and a host of other voices. From the Négritude movement in Europe, Africa and Martinique to Japan's Bikyoto, from Iraqi modernism to Australian cyberfeminism, they are by turns personal, political, utopian, angry, sublime and revolutionary. Some have not been published in English before; some were written in climates of censorship and brutality; some contain visions of a future still on the horizon. What unites them is the belief that art can change the world.

In Thrive, Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post and one of the most influential women in the world, has written a passionate call to arms, looking to redefine what it means to be successful in today’s world. She likens our drive for money and power to two legs of a three-legged stool. It may hold us up temporarily, but sooner or later we’re going to topple over. We need a third leg – a Third Metric for defining success – in order to live a healthy, productive, and meaningful life. In this deeply personal book, Arianna talks candidly about her own challenges with managing time and prioritising the demands of a career and two daughters. Drawing on the latest groundbreaking research and scientific findings in the fields of psychology, sports, sleep and physiology that show the profound and transformative effects of meditation, mindfulness, unplugging and giving, Arianna shows us the way to a revolution in our culture, our thinking, our workplaces, and our lives.
