The 50s Boring? Really?

The 1950s were boring. Dull. Nothing happened. Nothing changed. The mythology about the 50s is that it was a decade “so constricting that the ’60s had to come along to blow things up.” And yet – look at the art that was created then. “The ’50s produced an amazing body of art, one that we revisit time and again not for kitsch or nostalgia, but for the sense of excitement it conveys.”
