Pop for the People: Roy Lichtenstein in L.A.
Oct. 7, 2016 - Mar. 12, 2017
Renowned for his representations of everyday objects and his inventive interplay of line, dot and color, Roy Lichtenstein (1923–97) shaped the Pop Art movement. The Skirball Cultural Center’s new exhibition explores how the artist and the movement, buoyed by a renaissance in printmaking, made fine art accessible to the American public in ways that had not been achieved before. By exploring the historical and cultural context of Lichtenstein’s life and work, the exhibition sheds light on the social impact of Pop Art. The show coincides with the 50th anniversary of prominent Los Angeles printing house Gemini G.E.L. and features more than 20 of its Lichtenstein prints. 2701 N.
