When: Feb. 2-May 22 2016
The story of the pop-art movement is one of rupture; it was a particularly notable moment in the ongoing modern task of upending high-low cultural divides. Pop is generally recognized through the output of art bad boys including Jim Dine, Robert Indiana, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg and, of course, Andy Warhol. The Fleming Museum of Art has just opened an exhibition of 37 prints by these artists and others, on loan from the Smithsonian Institution. Significantly, the Fleming is plundering its own collection to add female pop artists to the mix, including Marisol, Chryssa and Corita Kent.
