Description

The 1890s witnessed the birth of the little magazine, a form associated with emerging modern art movements and alternative social and cultural trends. This exhibition will bring viewers into the world of these magazines, and explore the role they played in the aesthetic and cultural revolts of the fin de siècle. Curated by Dr. Kirsten MacLeod, the items on show will illustrate the relationship of these little magazines to the rise of mass-market periodicals; the Arts and Crafts movement and the work of William Morris; Decadence and Symbolism; and the transatlantic poster revolution that brought fame to artists including Aubrey Beardsley, Toulouse-Lautrec, Will Bradley, and Ethel Reed. While it focuses on the aesthetics of these magazines, the exhibition will also highlight their connection to the era's major literary, cultural, and social fads and trends. The 150 items on view in 'American Little Magazines of the 1890s' will represent the crème-de-la-crème of little magazines - aesthetically beautiful productions shown, for comparative purposes, alongside European counterparts, such as the Yellow Book, and examples of the emerging cheap mass-market periodicals.
