American Pop Art
Saturday, April 1
Coffee social 9:30 a.m., lecture 10 a.m.

Originating in the United Kingdom as a critique of American consumer culture, the best-known pop art in the U.S., in contrast, celebrates popular culture. But other forms of U.S. pop critiques consumerism as well as American ideologies. Elizabeth Howie, CCU associate professor of visual arts, discusses the emergence of pop in the U.K., considering the work of Richard Hamilton, and then moves to the U.S. to examine the work of New York pop artists Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and James Rosenquist and West Coast pop artists Ed Kienholz and Ed Ruscha.
An online course in American Studies (AMST 303/503) is available as a complement to the four-part lecture series.
