How I Pine for Existentialism

The above introduction was written by Peter Selz for this 1959 MOMA exhibition. Unfortunately any portrayal of angst today must be either taken as  irony or kitsch. Can you imagine anyone taking "The Scream" seriously if painted today? Whatever happened to alienation? I have posted below the list of artist in the show. Please note how some artist have completely disappeared from art historical consciousness.
