Amazons of the Avant-Garde at the Guggenheim NY Reviewed by Donald Goddard. The multiple levels of meaning that Cubism suggested in the first place were only finally realized by Gris and Duchamp who, in very different manners, achieved a new kind of illusionistic space, beyond the flat surface of the painting, that demands intellectual and emotional involvement.

Amazons of the Avant-Garde at the Guggenheim NY Reviewed by Donald Goddard

And so it is for the women artists in this exhibition and their compatriots. Their subjects are more likely to be active and contextual--Rozanova's Fire in the City, Popova's Traveling Woman, Udaltsova's Restaurant, etc. --perhaps through their contact with Italian Futurism. They occasionally deal with art subjects--still lifes, portraits--but are more usually concerned with a totality of experience, for instance that of peasants and workers in Goncharova's early "primitivist" work and Malevich's early Cubist work. In Airplane Over a Train (1913), Goncharova joined earth and sky, two eras of invention, two machines in a single spiritual space and single, almost comic image.

Modernism: Art for Art's Sake

Art for Art's Sake By the early 20th century, progressive modernism came to dominate the art scene in Europe to the extent that conservative modernism fell into disrepute and was derided as an art form. It is well to remember that for most of the 20th century, we have fostered a narrow view of the modernist period, one in which progressive modernism has received almost exclusive attention while conservative modernism has been largely ignored. Conservative modernists, though, the so-called academic painters of the 19th and early 20th centuries, believed they were doing their part to improve the world. In contrast to the progressive modernists, conservative modernists presented images that contained or reflected good conservative moral values, or served as examples of virtuous behaviour, or offered inspiring Christian sentiment.

Modernist - Post-Impressionism, Fauvism, Cubism, German Expressionism, Constructivism, de Stijl, Dadaism and Surrealism. Until the first decade of the 20th century, art, whether drawing, painting, or sculpture, was always essentially pictorial, and was based on themes and compositions representing real world ideas.

Modernist - Post-Impressionism, Fauvism, Cubism, German Expressionism, Constructivism, de Stijl, Dadaism and Surrealism

With the emergence of a new ‘Modernist’ thinking, and with an ever-increasing use of machines in industry and daily life, artists sought new ways to interpret the dynamic changes taking place around them. Modernist art imagery first developed in Europe between 1905 and 1920 on several fronts under a number of names such as Fauvism, Cubism, German Expressionism, Constructivism, de Stijl, Dadaism and Surrealism. American artists studied these new styles and ‘isms’ in Europe and brought them back to the United States. Simultaneously, European artists immigrated to the United States bringing Modernist concepts with them.

Aestheticization of Reality. The concept of the aestheticization of reality presented in this essay is an attempt to articulate a number of contemporary cultural and political phenomena and give them critical intelligibility through their mutual interaction.

Aestheticization of Reality

This is undertaken in parallel with a discussion of the intellectual tradition of ideological critique. A notion of ideology is deployed that has more to do with adequacy to reality than with attempts to conceal it. "Modernologies: Contemporary Artists Researching Modernity and Modernism" - ProQuest.
