Selections from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation
August 28–December 5, 2010
The art in this thought-provoking exhibition explores the great impact that fashion, finance, and socioeconomic themes have had on contemporary art. From the recent international financial crisis to the media’s fixation on luxury and glamour, these themes have inspired artists to look deep into the heart of today’s society. Chronologically, the exhibition begins with Andy Warhol, the pop artist who redefined the boundaries between media and fine art in the 1960s with his iconic depictions of celebrities and dollar signs. Lesley Dill’s Large Copper Poem Dress (shown at left) is a rusted metal ball gown emblazoned with the poems of the reclusive writer Emily Dickinson. Works by renowned artists Keith Haring, David Hockney, James Rosenquist, and many younger talents help us understand, deconstruct, and critique the global obsession with consumer culture.
