"Studies in Modern Art" is the publishing vehicle for the Research and Scholarly Publications Program recently established at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, with funding from the Mellon Foundation. The goal of this program is to foster and sustain study of the Museum's unparalleled collection of art works and archival material. Although focused on the Museum's own holdings, this annual publication will serve a wider purpose, with each issue devoted to a different subject area of general interest to students of modern art. No other noncommercial journal specifically devoted to discussion of the arts of this century now exists. Contributions from scholars outside the Museum's own curatorial staff will be welcomed in future issues.
In this first issue, "American Art of the 1960s", devoted to a period of great intellectual ferment in the arts, essays address such topics as the dialogue between abstraction and figuration and the relationships among movements as diverse as Minimalism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop art, and California light-and-space art. More specific topics include studies of Jasper Johns's prints; Ad Reinhardt's influence on young artists; the film director Elia Kazan; the evolution of Jim Dine's work in the Happening movement; and an interview with Robert Venturi on the twenty-fifith anniversary of his book "Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture", published by the Museum in 1966.
