The artists included in MetaModern, most of whom were born in the 1960s, question the reverence accorded to classic modernism.

Too young to have grown up eating their breakfast cereal from a Russel Wright spoon while seated in an Eames molded chair, these artists appropriate the language of the modernist movement critically, using it to interrogate the meaning of style and its relationship to history.

This 132-page soft cover, illustrated catalogue includes essays by exhibition co-curators Ginger Gregg Duggan and Judith Hoos Fox and noted fiction author Simon Mawer, as well as a graphic novella collaboratively written by exhibiting artist Conrad Bakker and illustrator Kevin Huizinga.
