Artists have grappled with the forces of nature from the time of the earliest cave paintings to the present. Today, our environment is strongly impacted by the Earth's relentlessly evolving weather conditions, such as tornadoes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, tidal waves, severe winds, rains, etc. Man has also added to the list of stimuli which has significantly affected the quality of the human environment with industrial pollution, manufacturing, automobile and airplane exhaust, plastics, paints, etc.... read more

Art for Art’s Sake was the rallying cry of the 19th-century Aesthetic Movement, which believed that art should be enjoyed for its pure visual qualities. This exhibition features work by young, mostly American, artists who explore the potential of abstraction. Works by Tim Bavington, Thomas Burke, Iva Gueorguieva, Brian Porray, David Ryan, Ali Smith, and Yek allow us to revive Whistler’s ideal that art should “appeal solely to the artistic sense of the eye.” Using the basic elements of pictorial art --color, line, shape, texture -- they produce bold, exuberant compositions that appeal foremost to the eye. All of the work was produced since 2000, a cultural era dominated by the labyrinth of images on the Internet. In order to compete with this continual barrage of pictorial stimulation, these artists chose to tackle it head-on, creating works that confront the viewer with a complex field of visual information. Their art is complicated, convoluted, and opulent -- never sedate and always surprising....... read more

When the Pop art movement first began in the mid 1950s, artists sought to challenge traditional conceptions of art making by incorporating aspects of consumer culture and everyday objects into their work. Artists during this period transformed those icons associated with mass media, comic books, and popular culture into visuals that often reflected a growing societal infatuation with consumerism....... read more

Pop Culture: Selections from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation

Curated By

Museum Hours: Monday - Saturday from 9:00am - 5:00pm

Closed Mondays and major holidays
Reception: Sunday, September 29th from 1:00 to 6:00pm

When the Pop art movement first began in the mid 1950s, artists sought to challenge traditional conceptions of art making by incorporating aspects of consumer culture and everyday objects into their work. Artists during this period transformed those icons associated with mass media, comic books, and popular culture into visuals that often reflected a growing societal infatuation with consumerism.

When it originated, the Pop art movement strove to ironically emphasize images representing the kitschy or clichéd elements of a given culture. Today, contemporary artists have elaborated on the traditions established by the Pop artists who created an aesthetic that reflected the changing needs and interests of varying societies. This exhibition brings together art that comments on popular culture of today and the vernacular of the 1960s with selected works curated from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation.... read more

Art for Art’s Sake was the rallying cry of the 19th-century Aesthetic Movement, which believed that art should be enjoyed for its pure visual qualities. This exhibition re-examines this concept in a group of contemporary artists whose art focuses on sumptuous beauty and pure visual effects. Works by Mark Chariker, Iva Gueorguieva, Brian Porray, and Ali Smith allow us to revive Whistler’s ideal that art should “appeal solely to the artistic sense of the eye.”


Funding for this exhibition is generously provided by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation. Curated by Billie Milam Weisman, Director of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation. Works are on view at the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art in the Gregg G. Juarez Gallery, West Gallery, and Wilson Gallery... read more
