Modernism and Modernity, edited by Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Serge Guilbaut and David Solkin, was originally published as the proceedings from a conference held in Vancouver, B.C., in 1983. With papers by Buchloh, T.J. Clark, Hollis Clayson, Thomas Crow, Nicole Dubreuil-Blondin, Clement Greenberg, Henri Lefebvre, Marcelin Pleynet, Allan Sekula, Paul Hayes Tucker and John Wilson Foster, this publication constitutes a major contribution to the rethinking of the history and debates concerning modernism and modernity. The Modernism and Modernity papers challenged both the orthodoxies of Greenberg in modernism and the reductive view of modernism then taking shape within the emerging doctrine of postmodernism. A guest at the conference, Greenberg presented a paper defending the modernist theories of the postwar period, which he was instrumental in developing at the time.

The Press of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design was established in 1972 as a vehicle to publish books by and about leading contemporary artists. Between 1972 and 1987, 26 titles by such artists as Michael Snow, Steve Reich, Gerhard Richter and Yvonne Rainer were published. Re-launched in 2002, the NSCAD Press will once again establish the university as a source for the publishing of primary documents and scholarly works in the fields of contemporary art, craft and design.
