Pop Goes the Easel explores Pop Art of the 1960s and its imp act on painting\, printmaking\, and sculpture in the decades that followed. Curated by Dr. Barbara Zabel\, Professor Emeritus of Art History at Connec ticut College\, this exhibition includes works by the male Pop starsAndy Wa rhol\, Claes Oldenburg\, Robert Indiana\, and Roy Lichtenstein&mdash\;as we ll as works by women artists who received less attention in that male-cente red decade\, including Idelle Weber\, Marjorie Strider\, and Niki de Saint Phalle. These artists chose banal subjects such as soup cans\, cows\, race cars\, and pin-up girls\; they appropriated the look of advertising\, comme rcial art\, and comic strips\; and they adopted commercial techniques such as stenciling and silk screening.

\n

By exploding traditional notions of easel painting\, Pop artists of the 1960s radically expanded the possibi lities of how art is made and how it is viewed. Pop Art and its Progeny exp lores the social and political avenues opened up by Pop for more recent Ame rican artists Barbara Kruger\, Shepard Fairey\, and Nancy Davidson\, as wel l as for those working on the global stage\, including Chinese artists Li L ihong and the Luo Brothers. This exhibition shows how Pop Art freed later a rtists to pursue new directions and to broaden their perception&mdash\;and our understanding&mdash\;of the world around us.
