A Museum of Modern Art Book This splendidly illustrated panorama of the arts from 1920 to 1960 focuses on four landmark years-1929, 1939, 1948, and 1955. Published to accompany the second of three cycles of millennial exhibitions (MoMA2000) at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Making Choices presents cross-sections of modern art in all its many aspects during this period, and shows how the concept of simultaneity was essential to the concept of early modernism.

The sheer diversity of work made in this period becomes clear as readers survey the different types of film, photography, design, painting, sculpture, drawing, and printmaking-all from the Modern's collections-reproduced here. But the richly variegated artistic texture revealed by such an across-the-board look also brings to light unexpected correspondences among distinct objects and images. Making Choices points toward modern art's heterogeneity even as it invites readers to search out and discover imaginative correlations.

Approximately 350 illustrations, 220 in full color, 9 1/2 x 12"
