Originating in the United Kingdom as a critique of American consumer culture, the best-known pop art in the U.S., in contrast, celebrated popular culture. But other forms of U.S. pop critiqued 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.

A coffee social will be held before the event at 9:30 a.m.

Presented by: Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts and American Studies
