THE YOUNG AND EVIL

By Crash

Queer Modernism in New York 1930-1955

Lauded by Jerry Saltz as “one of the most reactionary yet radical visions of art,” The Young and Evil tells the story of a group of artists and writers working in New York during a time when homosexuality was as problematic for American culture as figuration was for modernist painting. Edited by Jarrett Earnest, who also curated the 2019 exhibition at David Zwirner New York, The Young and Evil features new scholarship by art historians Ann Reynolds and Kenneth E. Silver and an interview with Alexander Jensen Yow, a key figure on the scene.
