by Marc Kristal "Postmodernism: Style and Subversion 1970-1990," on view at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum through January 15th 2012, is the first major exhibition to take a long, hard look at the most transformative—and contentious—aesthetic movement of the late twentieth century, one that continues to resonate (for better and for worse) throughout architecture, design, fine art, and popular culture. With over 250 objects tracing the movement from its tentative beginnings through its explosive heyday to its decline (at the hands of commercialization), the exhibition makes a powerful case for the postmodernism's game-changing significance. On a recent afternoon, Glenn Adamson, the show’s co-curator (with Jane Pavitt), gave Dwell a tour, and discussed some of "Postmodernism’s" highlights and the thinking behind their inclusion.
