Summary
"Pop Departures centers on the topics of consumerism and display, as well as our ongoing infatuation with celebrity culture, all of which are bound up tightly with a constantly changing media and communications landscape. To better understand some of the shifts that have occurred since the 1960s, the catalogue highlights three artistic moments that center largely on developments in the United States. It features key works by pioneers of American pop art in the 1960s, followed by critical responses to popular culture imagery in the 1980s and early 1990s, and finally, contemporary artistic departures after the turn of the millennium. What made the image culture of consumption such a compelling topic? And how has the discussion shifted and eddied since classic pop art shattered dearly held ideals of artistic practice?"-- Provided by publisher.
