Audain Art Exhibition – POP

Location: Audain Art Museum

The Audain Art Museum is proud to announce a special exhibition organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum – POP. Pop art emerged in stark contrast to the emotional intensity of abstract expressionism, then the reigning movement in contemporary art. Pop art’s banal subject matter and commercial references startled viewers. Pizza? A comic book frame? A movie star? Pin-up girls? Art lovers had always assumed that high art and popular culture were oppositional concepts—until Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol and others of their generation challenged prevailing assumptions about what fine art should be. This exhibition features 37 works drawn from the Smithsonian American Art Museum collection augmented with a suite of “Marilyn” prints by Warhol from the Vancouver Art Gallery collection.

Audain Art Exhibition – POP

Location: Audain Art Museum

The Audain Art Museum is proud to announce a special exhibition organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum – POP. Pop art emerged in stark contrast to the emotional intensity of abstract expressionism, then the reigning movement in contemporary art. Pop art’s banal subject matter and commercial references startled viewers. Pizza? A comic book frame? A movie star? Pin-up girls? Art lovers had always assumed that high art and popular culture were oppositional concepts—until Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol and others of their generation challenged prevailing assumptions about what fine art should be. This exhibition features 37 works drawn from the Smithsonian American Art Museum collection augmented with a suite of “Marilyn” prints by Warhol from the Vancouver Art Gallery collection.

Ancestral Modern: Australian Aboriginal Art from the Kaplan & Levi Collection

Location: Audain Art Museum

Come and experience the Audain Art Museum’s newest art exhibition organized by the American Federation of Arts. Ancestral Modern: Australian Aboriginal Art from the Kaplan & Levi Collection presents a selection of outstanding contemporary art by Indigenous Australian and Torres Strait Islander artists. Since the 1960s, artists from these communities have spearheaded a renaissance in the world’s oldest, continuous artistic tradition, innovating within the idioms of visual languages that have developed over the course of millennia. While these dazzling paintings and beguiling sculptures often share formal characteristics with Western modern art, they represent conscientious efforts on the part of Aboriginal artists to share their culture with outsiders. Ancestral Modern will offer an opportunity for many museum visitors to experience this extraordinary work for the first time. It includes innovators like Rover Thomas and Emily Kam Kngwarreye, who adapted materials and motifs traditionally used in ground painting, body painting, or the preparation of ritual objects in their works on canvas.
