Postwar: Art between the Pacific and the Atlantic: 1945-1965

Assistant Professor, Tobias Wofford, recently contributed to the catalog for the exhibition titled Postwar: Art between the Pacific and the Atlantic: 1945-1965, on view at the Haus der Kunst in Munich, Germany from October 2016 to March 2017.  Organized by Okwui Enwezor, Katy Siegel, and Ulrich Wilmes, the exhibition and catalog reframes the narrative of postwar art by examining the twenty year period immediately following WWII as a broad and global phenomenon.  Wofford’s contribution, “The Black Cosmopolitans,” explores the theme of cosmopolitanism in light of the institutions that connected African and African American artists and audiences in this period.
