Professor Angela Miller has chapter included in new volume on MoMA and Modern Art in America

Dr. Miller's chapter, titled "American Exceptionalism at the Modern, 1942-1959: Dorothy Miller's Americans," was included in the edited volume Modern in the Making: MoMA and the Modern Experiment 1929-1949.  The book was edited by Sandra Zalman and Austin Porter and published by Bloomsbury Press in 2020.  Additionally, she presented a paper at this year's CAA titled "From Democratic Pluralism to Corporate Hegemony: US Art after 1943," part of the panel "Toward a Concrete Transaction: Global Methods for Art in Capital."

Later this spring, Dr. Miller will continue her work on American magic realism and figuration in the 1940s as she serves as a discussant at "Figuring Magic Realism" at the City University of New York Graduate center, and will present a lecture, "Extra Ordinary: Magic, Myster, and Imagination in American Realism" at the Georgia Museum of Art, University of Georgia.  In June, she will be the keynote speaker at the Center for American Art, Courtauld Institute of Art at the University of London, with a lecture titled "American Art of the 1940s."
