César in Context
This illustrated catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition held at Luxembourg & Dayan, New York, in 2013. It presents César's work in the context of his contemporaries. Surrounded by the leading artists of his generation, from French Nouveaux Réalisme to Italian and American postwar art movements such as Arte Povera, Neo-Dada, and Pop Art, we gain a greater understanding of César's relevance as a sculptor and artist. The exhibition highlights the expanding possibilities of materials available to César and the frequent technological manipulations he submitted these media to.
