CUTTING-EDGE CONTEMPORARY ART Contemporary or modern? Sources appear to disagree on the exact difference between these two terms, but however it’s defined, European art from the past 100 years is exhibited with great enthusiasm throughout the continent—sometimes in ways you’d never expect! Present-day artists in particular work under wider global influences, aremore culturallydiverse thanever, and have technology whose innovation is stunning to us even as we use it. Expand your sense of what art is and explore the ways it permeates daily European life. Galleries and museums specializing in contemporary art abound, yet sometimes the building or venue itself is as fascinating and as much of an attraction as the collection itself. Festivals celebrating currently produced art are also wildly popular. Contemporary European works include paintings and sculpture, certainly, but prepare for multi-media, multi- sensory experiences, urban art, seasonally oriented installations, and groundbreaking performance art. Experiencing contemporary European art is a spectacular way to deepen your viewof recent decades and turn with new eyes to the future.
