Al Miner, assistant curator, Contemporary Art

Be introduced to the art of our time by taking a tour of some 70 examples from the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, with curator and author Al Miner. See how thematic chapters present artistic categories, concepts and propositions that offer a path toward understanding the different subjects, forms, styles, purposes and techniques of contemporary art. Understand how some, such as portraiture, are long-standing notions in the history of art; others, such as site appropriation, raise provocative questions and may be less immediately obvious. But it is the works themselves—brilliantly conceived by some of the most creative minds of our times—that make the case for embracing contemporary art in all its diversity.
