This conference will reassess how artists and art professionals negotiated the formidable reputation of American art, both within the US and internationally, between the years 1940 and 1980. During these decades the prestige of the US art world—for which “New York” functioned as a synecdoche— was understood to enjoy a global reach. Speakers seek to explore how artists moving in and out of the art worlds of American art during this period engaged with the power complex of provincialism, in the light of the current research emphasis on artistic transnational exchange.
