Event Short Description

Pop Art and the Rise of Consumer Culture – A talk by Colin Pink

Event Information

Arts Society Steyning talk on Pop Art

This talk will examine the emergence of Pop Art in Britain and the USA as a reaction to the dominance of Abstract Expressionism and the rise of consumer culture in the post-war period. The talk will look at both the celebratory and critical aspects of Pop Art. Here was a new art inspired by the popular artefacts generated by a new consumer culture of: cars, home appliances, comic books, the celebrity glamour of pop stars and film stars, science fiction, the junk people throw away, and the junk people eat: hamburgers and American pie.

Artists covered include Eduardo Paolozzi, Richard Hamilton, Peter Blake, Allen Jones, David Hockney, Pauline Boty, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Ray Lichtenstein, Marisol, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Indiana, James Rosenquist, and Tom Wesselman.
