‘The Pictures Generation’ at The Metropolitan Museum of Art [Andy Warhol Foundation]
Now until August 2nd, “The Pictures Generation,” will be on display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The show features works from post-WWII America, with much inspiration drawn from films, television, magazines and advertising. These artists used representational forms to illustrate the media’s influence on individuals and society as a whole. A decade of artwork from 1974 to 1984 is covered, when movements like feminism and gay rights were coming to the forefront and challenging social constructs.
All-in-all, there are 160 works from all media outlets from thirty artists. The exhibition is made possible by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation and The Andy Warhol Foundation.
