Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU’s Abby Weed Grey Collection
Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU’s Abby Weed Grey Collection sheds new light on our understanding of modern art created outside the Western tradition. The Grey Collection, comprising nearly 700 works, constitutes the largest institutional holdings of modern at from Iran and Turkey outside those countries and the foremost trove of modern Indian art in an American university museum. Featuring new scholarship and groundbreaking essays, Modernisms illustrates many of the outstanding paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints in the collection alongside short biographies of each artists. This important volume, the first cross-cultural study of modern art from Iran, Turkey, and India, challenges the long-standing focus on Europe and America and identifies global art as a central component of modernity.
