Pictures, by Douglas Crimp, Artists Space, New York, 1977. Crimp's catalogue text describes postmodern art in the 1980s. The press release states “The fundamental relationship between the artists under consideration for the show is their use of recognizable, non-abstract images, without, however, resurrecting representation as it is traditionally understood. (The return to figurative painting is at the farthest remove from this new work).”
