Abstract:

Modernisms explores art from the 1960s and early ?70s from Iran, Turkey, and India via selections from an unparalleled collection at New York University. Featuring new scholar ship and seminal essays, this book also illustrates paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints from these three countries alongside biographical narratives of each Artist.00Modernisms will be the first book to provide a cross-cultural study of works from Iran, Turkey, and India. In so doing, it will illuminate our understanding of modern art created outside the long-dominant North American?Western European axis. With nearly 700 works, the Abby Weed Grey Collection comprises the largest institutional holdings of modern art from Iran and Turkey outside those countries, and the most important trove of modern Indian art in an American university museum. Proposing non-Western art as a critical component of modernity, this publication challenges the long held belief that other modernisms are second-rate.00Exhibition: Grey Art Gallery, New York University, New York, USA (10.09. - 07.12.2019) / The Block Museum of Art, Evanston, USA (21.01. - 05.04.2020).
