New York: 1962–1964

Charting the three momentous years in which New York became the global capital of art

The radical cultural transformations that occurred in New York in the three years between January 1962 and December 1964 ramified across the world. In addition to a whole host of creative innovations across disciplines, the period also saw a shift in the center of artistic gravity from Europe to the United States and the rise of a new leadership in the arts—curators, gallerists and other impresarios. Modeled on the scale and format of Life magazine (one of the most widely read publications of the era), this lavishly illustrated oversized paperback traces a detailed itinerary of artists and curators, experimental exhibitions and museums, as well as historical and political events that transformed society during this explosive moment. From the New Realists exhibition at Sidney Janis Gallery in 1962 to Robert Rauschenberg’s unexpected win of the International Grand Prize in Painting at the 1964 Venice Biennale, every groundbreaking event from this incredible three-year period is documented.
Organized chronologically, the book is teeming with images of artworks and archival photographs, and artist interviews conducted by the late great curator Germano Celant.
Artists include: Diane Arbus, Lee Bontecou, Chryssa, Merce Cunningham, Jim Dine, Melvin Edwards, Dan Flavin, Lee Friedlander, Nancy Grossman, Jasper Johns, Donald Judd, Ellsworth Kelly, Yayoi Kusama, Norman Lewis, Roy Lichtenstein, Marisol, Agnes Martin, Louise Nevelson, Isamu Noguchi, Claes Oldenburg, Yvonne Rainer, Robert Rauschenberg, Faith Ringgold, Larry Rivers, James Rosenquist, Miriam Schapiro, Carolee Schneemann, George Segal, Jack Smith, Harold Stevenson, Marjorie Strider, Mark di Suvero, Bob Thompson and Andy Warhol.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Times: Arts

Ted Loos

Start[s] a conversation about an especially fertile time in the art world’s capital. Featuring well-known names like Jasper Johns, Faith Ringgold and Merce Cunningham, it also may introduce artists like Marjorie Strider to the public.

New York Times

Holland Cotter

Art in New York in the early 1960s made for a heady mix. Culturally, we were perched on the edge of something and leaning forward. And a fast flip through the show’s catalog, an illustrated three-year timeline edited by Celant and designed by Michael Rock, gives a sense of a larger — national, global — teetering condition.

Financial Times

Ariella Budick

Its dazzling and generous survey overflows with justifiable nostalgia for an age that, however brief, truly was golden.

New Yorker

Peter Schjeldahl

A spectacular show of art and documentation...The global contexts rhyme in energy if not in direct relevance with an insurgent avant-gardism in New York which rejected modernist detachment in order to engage lived realities.

Brooklyn Rail

Suzaan Boettger

Certainly at the moment our fair city’s most enveloping visual and aural museum experience.

Brooklyn Rail

Alfred Mac Adam

1962–1964 manages to encapsulate the artistic explosion taking place in New York in the early sixties in art, in dance, and in poetry.
