THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART, NEW YORK

Modern Starts

People, Places, Things

Edited by John Elderfield, Peter Reed, Mary Chan and Maria del Carmen Gonzalez. Essays by Starr Figura, Beatrice Kernan, Judith B. Hecker, Elizabeth Levine and M. Darsie Alexander, Magdalena Dabrowski, Wendy Weitman, Peter Reed, Susan Kismaric, Sarah Ganz, Mary Lea Bandy and Deborah Wilk. Foreword by Glenn D. Lowry.

A challenging exploration of the visual arts from 1880 through 1920, Modern Starts is an unconventional guide to the beginnings of modernism. Deliberately abandoning customary labels--such as Fauvism, Cubism, and Futurism--and accepted chronological ordering, Modern Starts offers many pathways, each independent and self-sufficient, intended to suggest fresh modes of looking at and thinking about works both very familiar and quite unfamiliar. Loosely organized into three thematic sections, the book begins with "People," treating the great period of early modern figurative art from Rodin and Matisse to Munch. "Places" features landscapes and cityscapes by such artists as Atget, CĒzanne, de Chirico, and LĒger. "Things" addresses the importance of object-like works, such as Duchamp's "Readymades" and Brancusi's sculptures; and representations of things from Picasso's still lifes to Lucian Bernhard's advertising posters. Provocative juxtapositions, new contexts, and inventive interplays of mediums provide a stimulating look at the beginnings of modernism. Published to coincide with MoMA2000, an 18-month series of exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art, New York drawn from the Museum's incomparable collection. Modern Starts is the first in a series of three volumes focusing on distinct periods: 1880-1920, 1920-60, and 1960-2000.
