Summary
A look at the successes, failures and controversies that arose when the US government and US art world sought to unite to make an international art program a reality between the 1940s and 1970s. It questions the cultural dimensions of US postwar diplomacy and asks how elements of the Cold War led to a redefinition of what is, and isn't, 'American'
