Published in conjunction with an exhibition of masterworks from The Museum of Modern Art at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Fast Forward: Modern Moments 1913 >> 2013 features artwork produced in six key years. Concentrating on groundbreaking moments when major modern movements and radical new strategies emerged, the book provides an overview of the innovations and achievements of the last century, including the new visual languages of Cubism and Futurism (1913), the convergence of Surrealism and New Vision photography between the wars (1929), the large-scale abstract painting of midcentury (1950), the merging of art and life in the early 1960s (1961), and the embrace of identity politics and appropriation by artists in the late 1980s (1988). A series of new commissions by three contemporary artists represents the art of the present moment. Each of the six richly illustrated sections features a close reading of one major work from the period, complemented by an exploration of that year's aesthetic zeitgeist. An essay by Jodi Hauptman, curator in the Department of Drawings and Prints, introduces the volume, and a timeline featuring documentary photographs provides historical context. 192 pp.; 203 illus.
