Modern art refers to the group of art movements and styles that emerged in the later part of the 19th century up to the 1960s. Some of the styles that are categorized as modern art include surrealism, pop art, futurism, impressionism, op art, cubism and Bauhaus, among others. But despite the fact that it has been with us for quite a long time now, many people still do not understand this artistic style. Dr. Daniel Mato, Professor Emeritus of Art History from the University of Calgary, is going to open our eyes on what modern art truly is with his art lecture series. This year’s lectures focus on the “art between the wars”.
