Taking as a primary theme the internationalism of current art trends, this massive two-volume catalogue presents scores of essays along with illustrations of more than 800 works that range from figurative sculptures, large-scale installations and abstract paintings by European and North American artists to works by contemporary figures from China, South Africa and Cuba. In addition to documenting the individual shows prepared by 53 countries and a thematic exhibition organized by thirteen international curators to highlight the achievements of emerging artists, the catalogue features substantial special sections that survey developments in postwar art in the Far East; present tributes to such figures as Francis Bacon, John Cage, and brothers Tano Festa and Francesco Lo Savio; and explore interdisciplinary works by Robert Wilson, Peter Greenaway, Markus Lupertz, Mario Schifano and other artists.
