Item description for New York, New York: Fifty Years of Art, Architecture, Photography, Film, and Video by Lisa Dennison...

After World War II, New York became the laboratory for the Western world's avant-garde art movements, a prominent role it maintained for decades. Generations of New York artists have left their mark on the development of contemporary art in the context of influential art movements such as Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Super Realism, Minimalism, Land Art, Body Art, and Conceptual Art. This show and catalog, published in association with a major exhibition at the Grimaldi Forum of Monte Carlo, is the most comprehensive exploration of this topic. New York, New York encompasses critical research into the fields of architecture, cinema, photography, music, performance art and video, conveying the cultural dynamics that have characterized life in this metropolis since the 1940's. Lisa Dennison and Germano Celant have selected the artists and works that best depict the pivotal role played by New York artists, and they have illuminated the complex cultural environment in which they worked.
Lisa Dennison is the director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and author of numerous exhibition catalogs. Germano Celant is senior curator of contemporary art at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and artistic director of Fondazione Prada. His recent publications include Architecture & Arts 1900/2004 (Skira, 2005) and Manzoni Catalogo delle Opere (Skira, 2004).

Reviews - What do customers think about New York, New York: Fifty Years of Art, Architecture, Photography, Film, and Video?

Not easy to follow  May 29, 2007
This is the catalogue for an exhibition held in Monaco in 2006 which had the ambition of covering everything that New York produced in the visual arts since the fifties (architecture,cinema, photography, sculpture and painting). The result, albeit impressive by the weight of the book and the quality of the illustrations, is a little difficult to follow, no surprise for this overly ambitious endeavour. Divided into two chronological parts, 1950-1975 and 1975-2000, it sometimes resembles an auction catalogue from Sotheby's and Christie's, with all the big names of Abstract Expressionism (Rothko, Newman, Pollock, De Kooning...), Minimalism (Carl Andre, Donald Judd...)and the avant-garde (Gober,Prince, Wool...), all appearing one by one. The checklist at the end does not really help to dissipate this first impression and is sometimes difficult to link to the illustrations.

A book undoubtedly destined to become a collector's piece because of its topic and also because of the quality of the texts (written by Germano Celant, Robert Rosenblum, Nancy Spector, among others), its organization is debatable and does not make for easy reading.
