EXHIBITION: POP ART - Icons that matter
In Maillol Museum:
Collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York
From 22 September 2017 to 21 January 2018
The exhibition focuses on Pop Art in post-war American art, from the beginning of the 1960s to the end of the 1970s, and includes formative figures from the Pop Art movement: Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns, the sculptures and monumental canvases of Claes Oldenburg, Tom Wesselmann, James Rosenquist, and Alex Katz, the serigraphs of Andy Warhol, and the paintings of Jim Dine and Roy Lichtenstein. Although the exhibition features the movement’s most prominent artists, it also includes American artists who are less well known in France (George Segal, Rosalyn Drexler, May Stevens, John Wesley, and so on) and enable viewers to appreciate the diversity of the techniques employed.
