Dada in the Collection of The Museum of Modern Art (HC)
Edited by Anne Umland and Adrian Sudhalter, with Scott Gerson
Dada in the Collection features some seventy works in various mediums- including books, collages, drawings, films, paintings, photomontages, prints, and reliefs- presented in large-scale reproductions and accompanied by in depth, object-focused entries by an interdepartmental group of the Museum's curators. Catalyzed by the major Dada exhibition that appeared in 2005 and 2006 in Paris and Washington, D.C. and at MoMA, the book benefits from new scholarship generated by the extraordinary opportunity the exhibitions created for an international community of scholars to examine the Museum's objects beside those on loan from other institutions. This is the ninth volume of Studies in Modern Art, the Museum's publication series devoted to scholarly research on its collection. Includes 242 illustrations.
An illustrated essay by Anne Umland, Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum, traces MoMA's history of collecting, exhibiting, and publishing Dada work.
