What is THAT Supposed to Be? Test Your Skill at Finding Form in Abstract Art

Take our quick 10 question quiz and challenge yourself to see if you can figure out what these artists were aiming for.

Even those of us who work at UMMA will sometimes come across a painting, check out the title, tilt our heads, squint, and say, “Huh. I just….don’t see it.” Of course, this isn’t a commentary on the artists’ skills, but more an acknowledgment of how we can all look at a work and have wildly different interpretations. We’ve gathered a few abstract pieces from UMMA’s collection to put those interpretive skills to the test! 

Take our quick 10 question quiz and challenge yourself to see if you can figure out what these artists were aiming for. You’ll only have ten seconds to look at each object - so go fast!
