About the Author

Laura Hoptman is Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Reviews
Seventeen artists are examined in this catalogue for a MoMA exhibition, arguing, somewhat paradoxically, that atemporality or timelessness is the defining characateristic of our current world. Work from painters like Matt Connors, Amy Sillman and Mary Weatherford reflects the tendency today to mix up historical styles and techniques on the canvas.-- "Art in America"
...when artists, critics, and curators want to take the pulse of contemporary art, painting inspires much of the deepest, most heartfelt, and heated discussion.--Jed Perl "The New York Review of Books"
