This catalogue was published in conjunction with the landmark Martha Jackson Gallery exhibition New Media - New Forms. Because of the publicity and huge interest in this show, the gallery went on to present a second like-exhibition, New Media - New Forms, Version 2 . This catalogue represents work and images just from the original show.
Martha Jackson was a pioneering presence during the post–World War II art scene in New York City. The gallerist supported art that was both unfamiliar and challenging, and was committed to her artists and to educating the public about their work. Jackson was a leader in the development of international modern art in America and was one of the first to show significant women artists. She succeeded in her own words, as “an art dealer whose primary role was that of a mediator between the artist and society.”
