Making reference to Charles Baudelaire’s essay ‘The Painter of Modern Life’ (1863), the artist David Batchelor declared, ‘I wanted to make a monochrome of modern life’ more than a century later. Ann Coxon, curator at Tate Modern, will explore this idea, making reference to the ways in which modern and contemporary artists have been drawn to the monochrome as a means of expression in high art or as a more prosaic reflection of everyday life.
