BREAKTHROUGHS: AVANT-GARDE ARTISTS IN EUROPE AND AMERICA, 1950-1990. Wexner Center for the Arts, Ohio State University, Columbus, 1990. Published 1991.

Documenting the Center's three ambitious inaugural exhibitions, this catalogue offers an enlightening summary of key transitions in postwar art, music, performance, film and video, presenting works by a host of prominent European and American artists in three chronological groups to illustrate trends of the 1950s to mid-60s, the late 1960s through the 70s, and the 1980s. Eighteen essays by noted critics and art historians closely examine influential figures and important movements of the first two periods, while recent developments are reviewed in three additional essays and in interviews with 14 artists, among them Abakanowicz, Kosuth, LeWitt, Burden, Kruger and performance artists Trisha Brown and Spalding Gray.
