ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta’s High Museum of Art plans to present an exhibition that explores the development of modern and contemporary art.
In “Fast Forward: Modern Moments 1913 2013” the museum plans to select key years in art history that represent watershed moments in the 20th century. The exhibition is set to be on view from Oct. 13 through Jan. 20.
It will look at the years before World War I and the Great Depression, the lead-up to postwar American prosperity and the years preceding the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the fall of the Berlin Wall. It aims to examine how artists responded to and were influenced by world events.
The exhibition is part of an ongoing collaboration between the High and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
