About this item
Combining a range of content with self-reflexive examination by scholars and practitioners, this edited volume interrogates the contemporary significance of the avant-garde. The contributors question the role of academia and exhibition cultures in redefining, reshaping, preserving, and transmitting the products of this historical phenomenon. Such contemporary scholarly and exhibition-based exploration institutionalizes avant-garde productions and, in doing so, threatens the potency of the avant-garde which relies on its marginal position. Rather than focusing on a particular region, period, or movement, this volume brings together case studies to examine what constitutes the avant-garde canon.
