Mid-Century Modern

Mid-Century Modern (MCM) describes a time of visual evolution in Art, design and architecture dating from 1945-1970s. It began as a post-World War II artistic movement. The Art Collection Society of Kingston (1957-1988) supported contemporary artists many of whom were producing art during that time, many of them drawing up and experimenting with modernist principles like: alternative colour pallets, abstraction, reduced shapes and three dimensional use of paint.
