Hofmann to Warhol: Abstract Expressionism to Pop Art in America
The Gadsden Arts Center & Museum chronicled the story of America’s journey from its first major art movement, Abstract Expressionism, begun in the 1940s, to the viral Pop Art explosion in the 1960s; a dramatic and literal dramatic shift in the fine art world away from the individual’s artistic expression to a concentration on mass culture and the media perspective.
This exhibition includes artists whose work is the epitome of these movements such as Josef Albers, Robert Anuszkiewicz, Helen Frankenthaler, Sam Gilliam, Hans Hofmann, Joan Mitchell, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol.
This exhibition was curated by Angie Barry, from the esteemed collections of the Harn Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, the Art Bridges Foundation, and the Florida State University Museum of Fine Art.
