  Save Event

A survey of pop art from its mid-century inception to the present day, delineated into three groups. The first group uses the profanity of mass culture to invade high art (Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein). The second, in the '80s, splinters into the craven (Jeff Koons), the critical (Barbara Kruger), and the revolutionary (Lynn Hershman Leeson, Nam June Paik). By the time Pop Departures hits the 2000s, with seven artists representing international perspectives in video, sculpture, photography, and installation, everything has exploded. The art is all over the place. Today's generation mimics our "culture of participation"—the way we can be scrutinizing one minute and indiscriminate the next.
