Jasper Johns's ongoing stylistic and technical experimentation place him at the forefront of American art. His richly textured paintings of maps, flags, numbers, and targets laid the groundwork for Pop art, Minimalism, and Conceptual art. In New York in the 1950s, Johns was part of a community of artists, including Robert Rauschenberg, seeking an alternative to the emotional nature of Abstract Expressionism. Influenced by Marcel Duchamp, Johns's early work paired the concerns of craft with familiar concrete imagery. His interest in process also led to innovations in lithography, screen-printing, etching and woodblock, using such materials as pencil, pen, brush, crayon, wax, and plaster to constantly challenge the technical possibilities of printmaking.

Writer and artist Phong Bui makes installations and colorful collages that evoke modernist artworks such as those by Arthur Beecher Carles and Joseph Cornell. As a child in Vietnam, Phong, the publisher of the Brooklyn Rail, would pore over Vogue magazine and dream of being an art director at Condé Nast. It was only after he went to the Museum of Modern Art for the first time and saw Willem de Kooning’s Woman I (1950–2) that he decided to pursue fine art instead of commercial art. “It really gave me a shock,” he says of the iconic abstract expressionist painting. “I got goose bumps.”
