Pop Life Exhibition Poster
From June 11th to September 19th 2010, the National Gallery of Canada (NGC) in Ottawa is hosting the Pop Life : Art in a Material World Exhibition. It explores the complex relationship between contemporary art, marketing and the mass media. Beginning with the late work of American Pop artist Andy Warhol (1928-1987), the exhibition proposes a re-reading of his legacy and explores how some of today’s high-profile media-savvy artists have followed his lead, embracing celebrity and commerce as the foundation of their work.
Following this theme, I designed a fake exhibition poster. I used the architecture of the NGC glass tower as an inspiration for this piece. I’m working on a second poster that hopefully will be completed before the exhibition begins. Stay tuned.
