About this book
Preservation, Radicalism, and the Avant-Garde Canon 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. This volume brings together case studies to examine what constitutes the avant-garde canon.
