Pop Departures Comes to Seattle

If you’ll be anywhere near Seattle this fall, it will be worth it to pop into the Seattle Art Museum. They will be showing the artwork of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and other pioneers in the pop art movement from October 9th 2014 to January 11th, 2015.

The show will also include Lynn Hershman Leeson, Jeff Koons and Barbara Kruger. The show, called “Pop Departures” looks at the influential pop art movement that started in the 1960s.

As the Seattle Art Museum website explains, “The pioneers of American Pop will be represented with key works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, John Chamberlain, James Rosenquist, Tom Wesselmann, and Mel Ramos. The exhibition will further examine a new generation of artists in the 1980s—including Lynn Hershman Leeson, Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, John Baldessari, Barbara Kruger, and Raymond Pettibon—who began to rethink ideas of commodity culture in a new social and political climate. And finally, Pop Departures will consider contemporary artistic positions in relation to commodity culture and celebrity with recent work by Josephine Meckseper, Elad Lassry, Margarita Cabrera, Mickalene Thomas, and Ryan Trecartin.”
