Biography

Michael Plante's research interests focus on the art of the United States and Europe after World War II. Interests extend to popular culture, exhibition history, cultural studies and issues of gender and sexuality. Forthcoming book is titled Paris's Verdict: American art in France, 1946-58, and concentrates on the artistic, cultural and political relationships between the United States and France at the end of World War II. Paris's Verdict focuses particular attention to exhibitions of abstract expressionism imported from New York, and the lives of expatriate American artists living in Paris during the immediate postwar decade, such as Ellsworth Kelly and Joan Mitchell.
