Talk | Roy Lichtenstein and Pop Art: Before & After the Dots

Donna De Salvo & Dorothy Lichtenstein in conversation

October 23, 3 pm - 4 pm

TICKETS   LIVESTREAM

One of the progenitors of Pop Art, Roy Lichtenstein’s work of the 1950s reveals much about the preoccupations of a younger generation of artists in the post-war U.S. as they attempted to work their way through and out of the shadows of Abstract Expressionism. Lichtenstein’s wide-ranging explorations of subject matter and form would lead to his groundbreaking Pop paintings, first shown in New York in 1962, ushering in a new attitude towards art from which there was no turning back.

On this closing weekend of Roy Lichtenstein: History in the Making, 1948-1960, join Dorothy Lichtenstein, former director of the pioneering Paul Bianchini Gallery, New York, who worked closely with many of the Pop artists, and Donna De Salvo, Senior Adjunct Curator, Dia Art Foundation, and Curator of Hand-Painted Pop: American Art in Transition, 1955-1962, for a lively conversation about this legendary artist and pivotal period in art in the United States.
