99 Avant-Garde Art Exhibitions

Culture Yourself, From War as Pop Art to Iconic Jumptography

— June 11, 2010 — Art & Design
Take initiative to educate yourself through this cluster of avant-garde art exhibitions including war as pop art, iconic jumptography, bloody art exhibitions and New York youthtography. With no end to the plethora of avant-garde art exhibitions in most major cities, we're often at a loss in separating the trash from the treasure.

Take a look at the featured gallery of galleries. Consider this your art education.

Implications - Avant-garde is an example of how high-impact labeling can instantly add to the overall impressions consumers have of a product or service. Through incorporating powerful words into brand marketing and print advertising, businesses can learn that consumers react well to such high-impact wording.
