MoMA, NYC. LECTURES & GALLERY TALKS at Gallery Conversations: Sunday, January 27, 2013, 11:30 a.m.: Pop Art and Minimalism. Deborah Goldberg
The Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, second floor
This talk explores the Pop art and Minimalism movements that emerged in both New York and California in the 1960’s, and examines the similarities and differences between the two movements—one concerned with imagery from popular culture and the other based on complete abstraction and geometric forms fabricated using industrial materials and processes.
This is a fantastic idea of the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA). Because we need to see artwork to feel the impression that a painting, sculpture, design… produces in our personal ‘sou’l but, also, we need to understand the moment that concrete piece was made and the intention of the artist. With this ‘conversations’, we can get a more complete idea of our contemporary art, sometimes difficult to understand due to its abstraction and concepts.
If you have the chance, don’t miss this opportunity.
Have a nice day Yareah friends!
