Making Mischief: Dada Invades New York

by Naumann, Francis M.; Venn, Beth

Condition: Near Fine

New York, NY, U.S.A.: Whitney Museum of American Art, 1996. This book is the catalog of an exhibition at the Whitney Museum from November 1996 to February 1997 whose intent was to show that, as important as Dada was to the growth of American modernism, the ferment of New York played an equally critical role in the evolution of Dada itself; New York Dada activity, reflected within a small but important community of artists, writers, critics, and patrons located in and around the Arensberg circle, was influenced by new technologies of photography and cinema, psychoanalytic theory of the subconscious mind, and the social tumult of massive waves of immigration; includes scholarly essays on New York Dada and many illustrations; contributors include Francis Naumann, the exhibition curator, Todd Alden, Steven Watson, Lauren Ross, Allan Antliff, Jay Bochner, Abraham Davidson, Lauren Dalrymple Henderson, Amelia Jones, Rosalind Krauss, Molly Nesbit, Robert Rosenblum, Dickran Tashjian, Beth Venn, Barbara Zabel (heavy card covers with very slight edgewear, otherwise a bright, clean, tight copy). Paperback. Near Fine. 7 1/2" X 10 1/4".
