This Is Modern Art was a six-part TV series written and presented by the English art critic Matthew Collings. It was originally broadcast in 1999. The series won several awards including a BAFTA. It became popular both because of its sometimes jokey and sometimes thoughtful explanations of the work and attitude of a new wave of artists that had recently been publicized in the British mass media, and because of its author's witty and irreverent, though clearly highly informed, commentary style.

As a continued exploration into the art and artists who were contemporaries and influences to the artists in the AMoA permanent collection, we will screen part two of this documentary series.

Free and open to the public.
