Pop Art: Blurring the Boundaries

Presented by Trent Nichol

Pop Art brought mass consumerist culture into museums and galleries in the early 1960s radically changing the course of art by eliminating the boundary between “high” culture and everyday life. Part of what paved the way was that it was the first major art movement with a sense of humor. This talk, using images of painting and film, surveys the American Pop Art scene and its leading figure Andy Warhol who invented his own Hollywood-style empire including “superstars” and his own celebrity status.
