SALON TO BIENNIAL explores the development of modern art as shown through a series of highly influential group exhibitions. It is the most important reference book available on the subject, and the only book available that charts these groundbreaking events in such detail and scope. Volume I opens with the revolutionary first Salon des Refusés in Paris in 1863, and concludes with the multi-locational international exhibition 'The New American Painting,' organized by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1958-59. SALON TO BIENNIAL depicts a wealth of rare documentary material and ephemera, including installation photographs, publications, and reviews of the period surrounding each exhibition. It is an exceptional sourcebook for anyone interested in the history of twentieth-century art, exhibition design, or curatorial practice.

"A must-read... Brilliantly conceived and beautifully executed... retells the story of modern art in a wholly original way... Suitably for its subject, this chronicle of exhibitions is stunning in its presentation. It twins the expert knowledge of Bruce Altshuler [...] with the art-book skills of Phaidon's editors... If part two is even half as good as this first part, anyone interested in art, taste and politics in the twentieth century will want to own and use the pair of them."-RA (Royal Academy of Arts magazine) "The role of exhibitions in the making of art history is now widely recognised... Students of art, art history and curatorial studies will eagerly welcome this direct route to archival sources, especially for the excellent installation photographs it provides... There are wonderful discoveries to be made in its pages, things that leap off the page with the force of the contemporary... At such moments one can imagine this book in the hands of artists and begin to envisage ways in which they might animate and reactivate the histories it contains."-Art Monthly "[An] important compendium... Extremely useful. Especially helpful are the installation shots... The illustrations of gallery viewers combine with installation shots to evoke the events and their significance for visitors as vividly as one could hope for. The rich assemblage of reviews is highly revealing, with its juxtaposition of hostile and favourable notices... The juxtaposition of these reviews with detailed information about the exhibitions offers valuable insights into educated and popular views on contemporary art throughout the period... This book will serve as a text-book, as an invaluable resource for scholars and as a rich source of browsing."-The Art Newspaper
