Kristin Utter Fedders , University of Pennsylvania. With the exception of the censorship of Warhol's Thirteen Most Wanted Men, little attention has been paid to Johnson's enterprise within the historical context of the Fair. This dissertation addresses the issue of context by examining how Fair officials, the art world, and fairgoers responded to Johnson's architecture and exhibition. Examining the world's fair as a venue for the exhibition of art for the mainstream public, this project pays careful attention to Fair President Robert Moses, whose free-market attitude enabled exhibitors to present a broad spectrum of art. This dissertation also examines Philip Johnson's role as architect of a highly popular building, as well as curator of an extramural exhibition of contemporary art that fairgoers largely overlooked. Moses and Johnson represent the split between elite and mainstream culture that had informed critical debates about art since the late nineteenth century.

However, the fair did not receive official support or approval from the Bureau of International Expositions , also known as the BIE. Hailing itself as a "universal and international" exposition, the fair's theme was "Peace Through Understanding", dedicated to "Man's Achievement on a Shrinking Globe in an Expanding Universe". American companies dominated the exposition as exhibitors. The theme was symbolized by a story-high, stainless-steel model of the earth called the Unisphere , built on the foundation of the Perisphere from the World's Fair. The fair is noted as a showcase of midth-century American culture and technology.
