"Accompanying the landmark exhibition 'Postwar: Art Between the Pacific and the Atlantic, 1945-1965,' this extensive and richly illustrated catalogue presents the work of 218 artists from more than 60 countries, reflecting the complexity and diversity of the art of the postwar era. Uniquely, the exhibition understands the term "postwar" as a truly global condition, focusing on the increasingly interdependent nature of the world as the result of new geopolitical affinities and technological realities. Through eight thematic sections, this catalogue illuminates how the epochal social changes that followed the end of World War II were manifested worldwide across the practices of painting, sculpture, installation, performance, and film. Key histotical documents, visual essays, color illustrations, and thirty-six contributions by leading art historians, curators, and scholars offer new insights into the complex legacies of artistic practice and art-historical discourses that emerged in the first two decades after the devastation of World War II. Artists' biographies, a comprehensive bibliography, and chronologies of the postwar period further supplement this indispensable resource for future research."
