Summary "With Alfred H. Barr, Jr.'s 1936 diagram of the flow of art in the twentieth century at its core, the exhibition Genealogies of Art, or the History of Art as Visual Art brings together visual representations of the history of art by artists and art historians, from the genealogical trees of the seventeenth century to today's visual online diagrams, including paintings, sketches, maps, plans, prints, drawings, diagrams, and information graphics. The resulting overview counterbalances the usual discursive presentations of art history and shows how the visual narratives that museums and exhibitions offer have true and irreplaceable meaning for that same history."--Back cover.
