Art as Therapy


Description

Two authorities on popular culture reveal the ways in which art can enhance mood and enrich lives - now available in paperback This passionate, thought-provoking, often funny, and always-accessible book proposes a new way of looking at art, suggesting that it can be useful, relevant, and therapeutic. Through practical examples, the world-renowned authors argue that certain great works of art have clues as to how to manage the tensions and confusions of modern life. Chapters on love, nature, money, and politics show how art can help with many common difficulties, from forging good relationships to coming to terms with mortality.

On a rainy Sunday in August 1968, Clyde Best, arrived in London for the first time. Not long out of school, he had come for a week long trial with West Ham United, the club with which he had fallen in love while watching the FA Cup final four years previously. It was the 17-year-old's first time away from the Caribbean. Alone, lost and depressed had he possessed the return fare Art as Therapy download ebook pdf he would have flown straight back home again. Had that happened, English football would have missed out on one of its most riveting and unlikely stories: how Clyde Best, one of eight children, went on to become English football's first black striking hero.

In his autobiography, The Acid Test, Clyde relates how he overcame appalling and violence- tinged discrimination because of the colour of his skin and how that served as an inspiration for dealing with intolerance throughout his career.
