He then exhibits how their paintings formed probably the most major media occasions of the chilly warfare, together with Edward Steichen’s Family of Man exhibition, the multimedia performances of John Cage, and, eventually, the psychedelic Be-Ins of the sixties. Turner demonstrates that through the tip of the Nineteen Fifties this imaginative and prescient of the democratic self and the media outfitted to advertise it is going to really turn into a part of the mainstream, even shaping American propaganda efforts in Europe.
